Doin’ It on Date Night… No, Not JUST That!

You’ve been looking forward to it for what feels like forever, and AT LAST… DATE NIGHT IS FINALLY HERE! Just you and your smokin’ hot husband… no kids…and several hours of time to do whatever you want. After you’ve shimmied back into the clothes you threw off as soon as your car found a dark alley, what do you do with the other 3 hours and 50 minutes of your allotted time? Remember, you’ve paid an extortionate rate for a babysitter and it’s pretty rare to get your mate to wear a shirt with actual buttons on it, so you’d better make this count!!! In order to keep you from wasting precious time while you anxiously try to remember the things you’ve been dying to do, I’m sharing my list here with you. Because I love you. And because babysitters don’t come cheap. Playing Dress Up 1) Seize this opportunity to wear things that you never get to wear when you’re “Momming It”.

Your little one won’t be…

The Irony of Potty Training- Postcards from the Herd

After having a really rough day yesterday, where I was yelling at everyone and none of the kids were behaving, my youngest Child, LLL, who is in the midst of potty training, went to the bathroom, sat on her potty, and went number two without even telling me she needed to go. Parents who have potty trained a kid (or 4, in my case) know what a huge deal this is… And it made me really excited and happy. Then the irony of the situation dawned on me… My child crapping on the toilet made my really bad day all better. This is one of those things people don’t tell you about parenting ahead of time. The crap cancelled out the other crap. So I present to you the new Postcard From the Herd!

You Know It’s Time to Wash the Dirty Dishes When… Postcards From the Herd

True Story! It happened yesterday morning at our house! In my defense, I don’t just let the dirty dishes pile up for days… I do them at least once a day…. But with 4 kids home all day, everyday, the dishes pile up FAST. And they eat cereal like a bunch of locusts, so the spoons go quickly!
