We flew home from Montreal, Quebec on Sunday and fly out to Denver on Wednesday morning. These few precious days at home, in my own bed, are fleeting and chaotic. Mostly they are just plain stressful. Unpacking, cleaning, laundry, and repacking equals stress for my life.

On top of this, due to time zone changes, my Little Man woke up on Monday and Tuesday morning at 3:30 am PST. 3:30 am people! How I stayed sane these last few days is really a miracle. Heck, maybe I am not sane at all any more. I got up with the Little Man at 3:30 am on Monday and here is how our morning went:

  • He got into his sister’s soy milk and shook it out all over the couch. I didn’t notice it until later when I saw dried white milk on our microfiber couch.
  • As he was pushing his sister’s doll buggy around he puked inside of it. I didn’t notice that until I was breastfeeding him an hour later and he put his hand in my face. It smelled horrible. He was playing in his puke and 1 hour old puke is not pretty.
  • Finally, he pooped and I didn’t notice that either. While changing him, holding him down in the 2 Foot Pin Down, he was still able to reach his little hands down and get poop on them. Why he likes to do this, really escapes me. This is more gross than puke in my opinion.

Do you see a pattern here? One: I am really unaware of this kid’s nasty behavior. I obviously need to pay better attention. And Two: my Little Man likes to get gross things on his hands.

So by the time 8am rolled around and my Princess woke up, it was time for homeschool Kindergarten. But, I also needed to drop dry cleaning off early and check for winter clothes at our consignment store. (I want to be prepared for cold weather in Denver this next month.)

We decided to do school in the afternoon and I got ready for town. A trip to town is not fun with two kids. Period. As I took a shower with both kids (no privacy at all in this house), and got dressed for the day, my choice of clothing and shoes isn’t a priority. I am not so hip and stylish as I once was. I have a closet full of cute clothes and shoes but instead of those things I throw on the standard blue jeans, t-shirt and slip on shoes. {My poor husband!}

My family is lucky when I brush my teeth and put makeup on both on the same day!

Days like this require a mom to take an evening off. After the kids are finally in bed I enjoy “me time”. I can check out and let my brain relax. is one place that I can easily visit online and just get a good laugh. For example, this is too funny – #MotherFunny really.

What do you shoes really say about you?

I can relate to a website made for moms that are going through exactly what I am going through. Misery loves company, right? NickMom is a new desination for all things funny, just for moms. You can get funny videos, stories, photos and shows when you visit NickMom. Check it out tonight. You won’t be sorry.

And yes, I have a pair of pink converse and a pair of black Crocs.

Don’t judge me.

      Ha! I do wear pumps to church but get them off my feet ASAP. Daily make-up trumps a daily shower in my life right now. Just saying.

    My shoe of choice isn’t actually ON there – I’m totally a flip flop girl, but I also wear Crocs – THE CUTE ONES! and boat shoes. I am completely insane, and I DO want people to think that I have a yacht.

    It also calms me to know that I’m not the only person with a son who likes to stick his hand in his own poop. WHY are kids so DISGUSTING?!?!?!?

    • LaVonne says

      My other go-to shoes are TOMS – and I am not sure what that says about me… I don’t know if I want to know. Ha!

      Kids just want to drive us insane. I am sure of it. It is a conspiracy. :)

    LOL! Your post made me laugh that’s because I can totally relate to you. My daughter does that too when she was toddler, she plays with her poop… My son used to puke and it really stinks from the milk. Oh well, that’s how our life is being a mom.

    • LaVonne says

      It is our life isn’t it. And no one but other moms can truly relate. That is why we need an outlet to just laugh at it all. If I didn’t laugh about it, I am sure I’d be crying!

      I am in Colorado right now and I did bring a low cowboy style boot. I have been eyeing a pair of cowboy boots, the nice ones are just so pricey. (That says a lot about my “cheapness”!)

      Thanks for coming by!

    • LaVonne says

      Wow! Your kids haven’t? What is your trick? LOL! Thanks, for coming by Alyssa. I love making others laugh. It makes the hard days a lot better.

    After 4 kids…they’ve played in every possible bodily function. Gotta love it, right? As for the earlier rising, I’m so glad my boys are old enough that I don’t have to wake up with them in the morning any more. ahhhh such a nice age. As for shoes, I’d be barefoot constantly if possible, but I love my Converse and flip flops.

    • LaVonne says

      Get this Mimi – I have Crocs flip flops. I love those! And yes, I keep telling myself when he gets older sleep will come. I just need to be patient. (Not my strong point!)

    LOL at the shoe infographic, that’s fun!!

    I hear you on the challenges of motherhood, and as for playing in things they shouldn’t, we’ve got four kids…so we’ve our own fair share of stories too. :)

    • LaVonne says

      Rosey, I can’t imagine four kids. Two is my limit here. I might just really be insane with four. My sister in law has four and she is so patient. She does great. Bless you Rosey as you parent your four!
