Moms Who Get Nothing Done

I feel like I could write a book about Moms who get nothing done - instead, I will write a blog post because that seems easier to accomplish.

Thank you, Grandma Mia, for finding this video.  I feel like this explains the first 
2-years   4-years of my life after my daughter was born - I was a mom who got nothing done.  In all seriousness, cherish these moments because You're Gonna Miss This.

My Lazy Mom Confessions

Here are My Lazy and Imperfect Self-Confessions:
(I think it's safe to say that this is "Volume 1"...)
  • I still wear maternity pants...and maternity shirts.  My child is 21-months-old.
  • I still blame most of my shortcomings on being overwhelmed, tired, and exhausted from the demands of my newborn.  My "newborn" is now a toddler and is almost 2-years-old. (See You Know You Have a Newborn If... for more on my shortcomings due to my newborn).
  • I still wear "pregnancy shoes" (aka, the shoes that my co-worked/classmate pointed at when was 6-months pregnant and said, "Ha. Nice pregnancy shoes.")  I wear them every day.  My child is a toddler now.  
  • I don't remember the last time I wore jeans.  See my Love Letter to My Yoga Pants for more on that).
  • I am on and off of the "laundry" bandwagon.  I am quite possibly the most irresponsibly person, in the world, when it comes to laundry.  I hate this about myself.  But I hate laundry more.  I've been battling using our Pack N Play as my gigantic laundry hamper ever since we received it at our baby shower.  (See post "These Are My Pack N Play Confessions.")
  • I bought a one-year gym membership. It just expired.  I didn't go...not even once.
  • I often find weird stuff growing in my fridge.
  • "No one wants to clean the refrigerator  I find, because that's when they find out how filthy that they really are..." - Ellen DeGeneres.

Share your "imperfect" self by confessing your imperfections in the comment box below.
(Throw me a bone here.) - I sure do feel a whole lot more attractive at Walmart than I do at the gym. - I would rather buy new tupperware, than bother to open this one to clean out whatever this used to be.

World's Best Trampoline Trickshot - YouTube Share

I found this on Ellen DeGeneres' favorite web videos when  I was playing on YouTube the other day.  This guy shoots a basketball from his trampoline all the way to his  basketball hoop and makes it.  It's pretty impressive, and therefore, it is worth sharing.

10 Funny eCards for Moms

Volume No. 1

My Real Life vs. Country Music (The Toilet Flood)

This week, unbeknownst to us, our upstairs toilet overflowed and then flooded our upstairs bathroom and then dripped through the ceiling all the way to our downstairs kitchen.  Now, our first and second floor has been taken over by over-sized, gigantic industrial fans and dehumidifiers that our local "flood restoration company" has provided.  My poor, innocent kitchen ceiling now has holes drilled into it, with dozens of plastic tubes sticking out going into and out of our ceiling.  As first-time home owners, this situation was in my Top 10 as far as the worst things that could go wrong with my home (with fire, tornado, earthquake, and termites being some of the other things). 

Below are two separate depictions between what my week has looked actually looked like and what a country song thinks it looked like: 

Depiction 1 - My Life This Week According to a Country Song:

  • According to country music, this is "just another day (week! months!) in paradise."  Below is a music video of the cutesy, unrealistic version of what my life looked like this week, as depicted by Phil Vassar in his country song, "Just Another Day in Paradise."  
  • I actually love this song, and have loved it since I was 15-years-old; however, listening to the lyrics ever since I was a teenager has given me unrealistic expectations as to the joy, calm, love and happiness that I would feel when something went wrong with my home.

Depiction 2 - My Reality and What My Week Actually Looked Like:

My Face:
My face when I walked in our kitchen and saw a huge puddle of water on the floor....and then looked up at our ceiling to see water dripping from it...looked a lot like Fuller from Home Alone.

And then I ran around in circles freaking out, and my toddler looked up at me wondering what the heck I was doing.  

And... - The Doctor said I needed to start drinking more wine. Also, I'm calling myself

NOTE:  I actually wrote this post last month, so for those of you close to me who are currently confused (and being like, "SHE HAD ANOTHER FLOOD?!") - no I did not have another floor; rather, I have been postponing this post for way too long.

Have you ever had a crisis occur in your home?  
Please share it with us!  Comment below! 
(I'm going to feel like crap if you say a hurricane or fire or tornado or murder - that would put a toilet floor in perspective - but please share your story anyway.)

    Titus Is Da Man! (2-Year-Old Basketball Star) - ADORABLE!

    Have you seen this adorable 2-year-old little boy who can shoot basketball hoops like a champ?  It's seriously crazy.  He's been on Jimmy Kimmel and the Today's Show.  His dad is also hilarious.

    This is what I did instead of my to-do list....

    My Family Portrait
    The beautiful, and lovely, family portrait image shown above is an excellent example of me completely ignoring that "little voice in my head," who told me I needed to be tackling the important items on my to-do list instead doing what I was actually doing -- drawing my family portrait on Microsoft Word.  Yes, instead of packing for my upcoming trip like I should be doing, I decided to draw a picture of my family (and our living room) on my computer using the "insert shapes" function of Microsoft Word.  

    But I must say - what a masterpiece.  

    I did not draw the dogs or the toddler (thank you, Clip Art), but I did draw Mr. Mia and I did draw myself (me = blonde woman in the photo)....and I don't mean to brag, but I designed the living room myself too.  

    Oh, and I also decided make myself lose 10-pounds when I drew myself (don't try to tell me you wouldn't do the same).  The yoga pants are accurate.  Mr. Mia does wear black a lot, but he is cuter in real life (his hair is rather difficult to draw).

    Although we don't have hands or feet in the portrait, please stay tuned for the next time that I decide to procrastinate doing my laundry or any other important things that need to be done in my life and instead decide make a portrait using the "insert shape" function in Microsoft Word.

    19 Baby Gifts With a Twist of Humor

    19 Cute Baby Gifts With a Twist of Humor

    I've been trying to limit my baby product recommendations to practical items, but I recently decided that funny, humor-based newborn and baby gifts deserved attention too.  Below is a list of funny newborn and baby gifts that I, personally, find to be funny and/or adorably and ridiculously cute.  If you are looking for a baby gift for someone that has a sense of humor, then you might enjoy this list. Keep in mind that whether you find some of these items funny (or not) is largely dependent on your type of humor.

    19 Funny Baby Gifts

    1.   Tuxedo Onesie Bodysuit

    Link:   Frenchie Mini Couture Onesie Bodysuit, Tuxedo 

    Funny Because.....Because a baby wearing a tuxedo is funny.  
    For a more practical list of newborn and baby clothing items, see Top 12 Must-Have Newborn and Baby Clothes.

    2.   Goodnight iPad

    Link:   Goodnight iPad: a Parody for the next generation 

    Funny Because...I probably don't need to explain why this is funny.  This is a funny parody on the book "Goodnight Moon," that any tech-savvy family can appreciate.  For a more practical list of favorite baby books, see Top 10 Baby Books for Baby's First Years.

    3.   Monsters Eat Whiny Children - Book

    Link:   Monsters Eat Whiny Children 

    Funny Because...Because monsters don't really actually eat whiny children.  This for those with a darker sense of humor, and for kids with a good grasp on fantasy vs. reality.   For a more practical list of favorite baby books, see Top 10 Baby Books for Baby's First Years.

    4.   The Baby Owner's Manual

    Link:   The Baby Owner's Manual: Operating Instructions, Trouble-Shooting Tips, and Advice on First-Year Maintenance 

    Funny Because.....At some point, a "troubleshooting manual" would really come in handy for that newborn of yours.  This book is great for the engineering "type" of dad.  (Mr. Mia loves this book).  For my favorite "troubleshooting" baby item, see Make Your Life With Newborn Easier - The Newborn Podster or see Top 25 Must-Have Newborn and Baby Items for a complete list of must-haves for newborns and babies.   

    5.   The "Mute Button" - Pacifier

    Link:   Mute Button Pacifier 

    Funny Because.....Because pacifiers do often mimic the "mute" button on a remote control when it comes to babies.

    6.   "These Fools Put My Cape On Backwards" Bib

    Link:   These Fools Put My Cape On Backwards Bib 

    Funny Because.....This bib is my favorite, and it makes me laugh every time I think about it.   For a list of our most practical baby bibs, see Top 5 Must-Have Baby Bibs, or see Top 25 Must-Have Newborn and Baby Items for a list of all must-have practical baby items

    7.   Mustache Pacifier -"Mustachifier"

    Link:   Mustachifier - The Gentleman Mustache Pacifier 

    Funny Because...It's a baby with a mustache!  (Hehe!)

    8.   Weird-Looking Animal Bibs

    Link:   Animal Face Baby Bibs  

    Funny Because....I just think the animals have funny-looking faces.  For a list of our most practical baby bibs, see Top 5 Must-Have Baby Bibs (2013).

    9.   Daddy's Little Tax Deduction

    Link:    Daddy's Little Tax Deduction 

    Funny Because......Children really are tax deduction.  My friends who are accountants find this to be hilarious.   
    For a more practical list of newborn and baby clothing items, see Top 12 Must-Have Newborn and Baby Clothes.

    10.   The "I Only Cry When Ugly People Hold Me" Baby Onesie

    Link:   I Only Cry When Ugly People Hold Me on Infant Onesie

    Funny Because....Because people get really insecure when you let them hold your baby, and when they do, your baby starts crying.  For a more practical list of newborn and baby clothing items, see Top 12 Must-Have Newborn and Baby Clothes.

    11.   All My Friends Are Dead - Book

    Link:   All My Friends Are Dead 
    Link:   All My Friends Are Still Dead 

    Funny Because.....These books have a very clever, dark sense of humor.  This book is NOT for kids - it's for adults (an interesting coffee table book that makes for a good conversation starter when friends come over).  It also makes a great "bathroom" book.  For a list of the best books that actually for for babies and children, see Top 10 Baby Books for Baby's First Years.

    12.   Go the F**k to Sleep

    Link:   Go the F**k to Sleep 

    Funny Because.... I, personally, find this book funny, but this book will not be funny for parents who have perfect kids, or parents who dislike swearing.  This book is NOT for kids - it's a parody of a children's book for adults - specifically for adults who have struggled with "bedtime" and sleeping with children.  First-time parents (especially first-time moms who are still pregnant) will not find this funny.   For a list of the best books that actually for for babies and children, see Top 10 Baby Books for Baby's First Years.

    13.   Belly Laughs, by Jenny McCarthy

    Link:   Belly Laughs: The Naked Truth about Pregnancy and Childbirth 

    Funny Because.....Jenny McCarthy "says it like it is" when it comes to pregnancy and childbirth  (from stretch marks to gas and much more).  This makes for a great baby shower present.

    14.   The "Pull to Sound Alarm" - Pacifier

    Link:   Personalized Pacifiers Pull to Sound Alarm Pacifier 

    Funny Because....Much like the Mute Button Pacifier, this idea holds true for many babies - pull out the pacifier, and the baby will be sure to sounds his alarm.

    15.   Shark Baby Robe

    Link:   Baby Aspen Let The Fin Begin Terry Shark Robe 

    Funny Because...Because babies dressed like sharks are adorable.  
    For a more practical list of newborn and baby clothing items, see Top 12 Must-Have Newborn and Baby Clothes.

    16.   Little Night Owl - Sleep Sack and Cap

    Link:    Baby Aspen My Little Night Owl Snuggle Sack and Cap 

    Funny Because....Because it's a baby dressed like an owl!  This is actually a practical gift too because sleep sacks are actually something that you truly need for a baby (see Top 25 Must-Have Newborn and Baby Items for more practical baby items).

    17.   Animal Baby Swaddle Wraps

    Link:    Beehave Swaddle and Cap Set
    Link:    Sozo Baby-boys Newborn Puppy Swaddle Blanket and Cap  
    Link:    Swaddle Blanket and Cap Set - Ladybug

    Funny Because....The caps have little antennas and doggy ears.  How are these not adorable?  
    For a more practical list of newborn and baby clothing items, see Top 12 Must-Have Newborn and Baby Clothes.

    18.   The "Gimme a Kiss"  Pacifier 

    Link:    Gimme a Kiss Pacifier  

    Funny Because...because this pacifier will make your baby look like she's giving you a kissy face.

    19.  I Drink 'Til I Pass Out

    Link:   Baby Onesies - I Drink 'Til I Pass Out Onesie

    Funny Because.....Not everyone will find the humor in this onesie.  This is a better gift for NON-first-time-parents who understand that a bottle/breast puts a baby to sleep (otherwise they will probably just think you are extremely rude and wonder why you gave them such an inappropriate gift).  For a more practical list of newborn and baby clothing items, see Top 12 Must-Have Newborn and Baby Clothes, or see  Top 25 Must-Have Newborn and Baby Items.
