6 Relatable Mom Moments That Will Make You Laugh Out Loud

Our kids can embarrass us and make us laugh. These moms are sharing a few of those moments. “I will never forget this Target run” I will never forget the time my two oldest and I went to Target for a quick errand. One of my girls had to go to the bathroom and decided to pull her pants down while we were still in the entryway to the store. I’m fumbling around trying to pull her pants back up, and she is fighting me trying to pull them back down. “But I have to poop, Mom!” I carried a half-naked 4-year-old under my arm like a sack of potatoes through the entire store, just to hear her say, “I don’t have

This Is Why I Love Hallmark Holidays and I’m Not Backing Down

This Is Why I Love Hallmark Holidays and I’m Not Backing Down

If I had to pick a favorite week of the year, hands down it would be the last week of October. It’s the week of Halloween, and you know what that means, right? It means handing out Halloween candy amid Christmas trees, Christmas decorations, Christmas music, and Hallmark Christmas movies! Not what you were expecting to read, huh? I live for Hallmark Christmas movies (like, literally, they’re my lifeblood). And when the last week of October rolls around, it’s a sure bet you can find me parked in front of my television ready for the first premier of the season. I have my Countdown to Christmas premiere list, and I check it twice (or 10 times). My DVR is scheduled and ready

This Is Why I Broke up With Facebook

This Is Why I Broke up With Facebook

It started out so sweet. He promised connections with the young people I was working with, updates of friends who lived far away, and plenty of entertainment. He introduced me to a new realm of the online world (MySpace and I never really dated). It was fun, and he delivered on his promises. Or so I thought. Facebook, it turns out, was not the best boyfriend. Those promises came with a high cost of entry. Instead of pouring into my life, he became a massive vacuum, sucking my attention and wasting my time. Those youths I was working with grew older and moved on to whatever the “new” medium happened to be. The people who lived far away actually talked to or
