Blonde coffee, hyper activity & some other mother!

Dear Mom who was there at the barber the other day,
Thank you so much for informing my husband that our youngest son is Hyperactive. Seriously? No...Seriously, who the hell are you? First of all, I don't know you. You seem like someone who is on some kind of speed. How's that for a little judgement? Does that tickle your fancy?!
Please proceed to tell me that you think I should give my (just turned) 5 year old son coffee. To calm him down of course! But make sure it's blonde coffee so the acid doesn't upset his tummy. How about my tummy? I'm getting sick just hearing you tell me what I need to do. 
First of all, my son has never been diagnosed with any type of hyperactivity. I will however admit that we are cooped up inside most of the time. (The oldest goes to school) It is winter after all. Rain, freezing temps, cold and all that jazz. So, yeah he might be excited to get out of the house and get his hair cut. At his favorite place. (Well, not anymore. That's a story for another time.)
Second of all, I didn't understand half of what you said. Slow down and enunciate. And damn it, stop mumbling. I do know that you were passing judgement on our kids. Well, judging one and praising the other. Praising the one who was "so quiet and mature." Little did you know, he's the troublemaker. So, there. What a great observation on your part. 
Next time I see you, if  at all don't talk nor look at me. Or I might send my "hyperactive" son over to bite you.
(just a little rant.)

You know you're a mom when... (A growing list)

You know you're a mom when...
(This is a growing list! Please feel free to comment your own answer!)

* You find yourself picking boogers out of your kids nose with your
* You wipe your kids nose with sleeve of your shirt and roll it up to hide it. (Sometimes, you might forget to roll it up, though)
* You might call your child by the dogs name (or vice versa) when they are in trouble or are frustrated with them.
* You find yourself watching one of their cartoons / tv shows and see that your child has fallen asleep. And you don't know how long they have been sleeping.
* You find yourself humming or singing a theme song to one of yourself children's favorite shows.
* You have someone screaming at you from the bathroom to wipe their butt

Judgement and The Mothering

What is it with Mom's who judge other mother's for the way they raise their children? Any smart person should realize, what works for me might not work for you. And vice versa.
For a mother to belittle another mother is absolutely horrible. No one knows what you're really going through, except you. Unless... you fall into the mommy blogger category. We write about it. Pretty or not. Boogers and snot. Cuts and bruises. Puppy dogs and rainbows. And all those "controversial issues".
But, still that shouldn't make you a target. Just because we have the balls to put out there, what you're afraid to say. 
So, take a step back and look at who you are. Be the fabulous Mom that you are. But, don't judge the other Mom because she does it differently. 
Maybe she's just trying to figure it all out, too.

Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips

I was lucky enough to be chosen by Influenster to receive a complimentary package of Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips!

These are AWESOME! I have somewhat sensitive teeth and these didn't bother me on bit! And more importantly, they work. Yes, yes, yes! I will definitely be making these part of my whitening routine. And I will be trying out the other products in this line as well. I mean, if it works, keep on using it. Right?!

And..... "If You're Not Whitening, You're Yellowing"

Enter 2013 ...

So, here we are - 2013 Day 2. How are we all doing? Have we all made some resolutions? Im sure many of us have made the dreaded I want to lose ___  pounds resolution. (insert your own number) Am I right? Sure I am. Besides that, what else do you hope to accomplish this year? I've made a small list of things and here they are:

* Be more positive
* Love myself more
* Be more productive
* Write more
* Read more

I'm sure there are more things I want to do. But that's all I can think of at the moment. What can I say it's a work in progress. 
Happy New Years everyone! May you have a happy and blessed year!
