A Thinking mom 4

To be a mother or parent is hard work am I right. To give birth to a child so little. All you want to do is love them and protect them and all the tiny baby knows is my mommy loves me and cares for me and she will do anything for me. Then comes the terrible two's and maybe three's. Lol . your little one turns into this little person, you don't even know. not listening and trying to talk back this is just the start right. Just a little sample of how puberty and young adulthood is going to be. Yes, kids go through stages of being disobedient and not wanting you to be their friend anymore or wanting to share everything with you. When your child hits puberty you can handle it. But when your child hits 18 -25 it gets a little rocky because your child is old enough to know right from wrong. But at the same time, they feel like the decision they make is good decisions for there life and you have no idea whats good for there life. Even though you

Thanksgiving is here and christmas is near.

Well everyone if your not already running around with your heads cut off like chickens or should I say turkey's. Thanksgiving is here and christmas is near oh what a cheer. We all love the holidays and how it brings are families together when they have been apart for such a long time or just lost contact. We love the hustle and bustle and the smell of pumpkin spice and christmas pine in the air. The ice cold breeze of the snow on its way depending on the area you live in or the snow is already there in your drive way. Time for coco I say and snuggle into a warm blanket. Earlier I said we are all running around like chickens with there heads cut off more like turkeys because with the start of thanksgiving or should I say the end of Halloween some people already started preparing for thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings from finding the right spices and the right size turkey to be able to feed your family. To finding that perfect pumpkin to make your homemade pumpki

A thinking mom 3

So as you all know I am mother of a grade schooler and now a mother of a new born baby and both are boys.what a joy. But know one ever talks about being a mother of multiple kids and how to balance out life. So what I want to say about being a new mother of two is. It's challenging but fun I say a new mother because being a mother of one is a total different mother from a mother of two. When your a mother of one. yes your still multi-tasking and moving fast but when your a mother of a 7 year old and a new born your multi-tasking is a whole different level. My day consents of feeding cleaning feeding then making sure my older boy is being responsible of getting his chores and homework done. We don't even want to talk about the leaving the house routine. Another thing know one ever wants to talks about either. Its so much preparation involved and if your going out without your spouse or your a single mother the making sure everyone is in the car and you have everything packed

Are you superstitious ?

Friday the 13th is just right around the corner. I asked this question are you superstitious because I know a lot of people who are. I myself am not to superstitious  I do feel like if you want something good to happen to you. You shouldn't tell everybody because I feel you will jinx it. But im not sure you can say that superstitious or not. Now the black cat superstition on the other hand I don't believe in that either because my spouses family has a black cat. lol but black cats do scare the heck out of me. Or when I was little people use to tell me don't open your umbrella inside but why not as a kid that's so fun. I didn't try it when I was little because my mom is a little superstitious. but as I got older I tried it and nothing happen. Lol if you look at my side  column you can see I put some books on superstition you can buy if you are either into superstition or interested in why superstition are brought about or you have a friend that's into.

Maternity leave or unemployment

They call it maternity leave but it should be called unemployment. They say there's paid and unpaid leave but really there both unpaid. then your obligated to return to work 12 or 6 weeks after baby is born. But what type of law is this. With the paid leave your using your vacation and your sick days to get paid while on time off. Well here's the thing pregnancy is planned but not planned at the same time. Lets say you have two weeks of vacation and that's in the beginning of the year so you plan vacation time like any other person would do right. Then later on in the year oh no you get sick and you have to use some sick days. So now lets say you have one week of vacation still and 19 weeks of sick days you don't think any thing of it life goes on you feel drained from work want to take another vacation why not. A couple of months later you find out you are a gonna be a mom how exciting. Now mind you are not thinking​ to your self about your vacation

The life of a wife

Many people view the wife as a women on a pedestal. But is that true or false or maybe is it equally true and false. But to be a wife is to have a full time job just like being a mom. In the old days people would get married first then have kids. Huh? makes you think a little right, but im saying this not to knock tradition but to say when people would get marry before kids it was obviously because it was for practice before the kids To have a husband is just like having a kid you have to look after him, protect him from making bad decision, cook ,clean, clothes them, make sure they have everything before they leave, remind them, pack there lunch,clean there clothes.basically everything you do for your child except hand feed So everybody thinks being a wife is glitte r and gold just like becoming a mom but they both have there ups and downs . You have your good days and you have your bad have a husband is have someone to ta

Bully or not

B ully or not Scenario I have a friend Stacy that has a son 6 or 7 years old. He is in the first grade he has a classmate in his class and my friend Stacy grew up with his mom Becky, so they are like mutual friends already but my friend Stacy son and her friend Becky son don't really understand that because the two moms don't hang out all the time. they use to hung out when they were younger with mutual friends, but they are cordial to each other they don't hate each other or anything just friends. So here is why the title is bully or not. My friend Stacy is talking to me telling me how school is going with her son she says its fine but her son says her mutual friend Becky son shoved him, and she asked him well why did he do that were you guys playing a shoving game like cops and robbers or super hero game or tag you know boy stuff. Her son says no we were just playing then he shoved me I told him I don't like shoving games and went to play somewhere
