“MOM! If You Really Care, You’d Play With My Hair!”

73 Thoughts

fussyThere’s something really shocking that happens when one gives birth to a girl after having five sons.

It’s called being introduced to the “attitude.”

And my sweet Mary totally has one.

Or as the boys call her, “Little Miss Fussy.”

Or Veruca Salt. Depends on their mood.

And her disposition.

So I wasn’t surprised when Mary toddled into the family room a few weeks ago and accused me of not loving her enough since I’d recently run out of idea’s for her hair and she’d had braids, pony tails or pig tails for months.

I stopped dinner preparations and turned to her. “Oh…well…sorry I can’t think of anything new after seven years of doing your hair almost every, single day of your life.”

“How hard can it be mom? Just look something up on youtube.com.” And off she went to go bake herself a cake in her little Easy Bake Oven.disney pricess

UGH…I’m sick of “how to’s” on youtube.com.

I scratched my head and said to myself, “Self…how are we going to make this child a little more grateful that she even gets to have hair on her head? After all, we’ve been washing, drying, brushing and styling it since birth, so technically it’s our hair…

Let’s go set Veruca straight.” And I walked out of the kitchen to give her what for.

And then I decided to check my email instead.

Because that’s always more interesting than conflict-resolution with a seven-year-old.

Put Your Head On My Pillow, Hold It In Your Arms…Baby! @headleveler

84 Thoughts

imagesShh…I know, I know…I’ve just changed the lyrics from Paul Anka’s “Put your head on my shoulder,” for this Customized Headleveler Pillow I’m reviewing, but bear with me here. The song is totally stuck in my head.

Put your head on this pillow
Hold it in your arms, baby
Squeeze it oh so tight
Show it that you love it too

Put your cheeks on the pillow
Won’t you rest on it, baby
Just a kiss goodnight, maybe
You and it will fall in love
(You and it will fall in love)

Okay…concert’s over. You may commence reading my review now.

This made-to-measure, personalized, custom made, washable pillow I received from HeadLeveler for an honest review is simply AMAZING!!!!

Okay…review’s over.

No wait, there is no way this review is over, nor are there enough words for me to explain how incredible this pillow truly is.

Oh my gosh…the last time I slept this comfortably I think I was still in the womb.

Dear Santa, All I Want For Christmas Is A New Shower Cap…And A Personalized Letter From You. Thanks

100 Thoughts

happy holidaysAnd maybe a million dollars. Or two…

That’s not too much to ask Old Saint Nick for. Right?

Speaking of asking Santa for something…I never once did I get to say “Santa Sent Me A Letter,” when I was growing up. I wonder why? Did I smell bad? Was I an ugly kid?

I do believe it’s way past time for me to get my own letter from Mr. Clause.

Don’t you agree?

So I think I’ll just start sending him mental images of my desired shower cap.

Along with that million dollars.

You know what? Let’s forget about the shower cap and hope for two million dollars.

Well, maybe not. I really could use a new once since the seven and nine-year-old’s keep using mine for Barbie and Ken’s dream pool.

And sometimes to cart the cat around in.santa

Oh, and let’s not forget the time when they filled the cap with jelly and crackers and took it outside with them so they’d have access to a quick and easy snack.

The only glitch in their portable snack plan was when they forgot to bring it indoors and we ended up with a backyard so full of ants that we could no longer find the dog when she went out to do her business.

Yeah, yeah…so I just exaggerated. But you get it.

Anyway, anyway…back to business.

I never got my very own letter from Santa when I was a kid and I think I may need some therapy to get over it.

You know, like when we still blame our parents for not giving us enough hugs when we were kids so now we’re serial killer type people?

Shop Online Rather Than At The Mall.

Leave a comment

two womenA few days ago I was out shopping with a few of my friends. We were doing the usual stuff, walking around, giggling, and sipping chocolate cocktails.

The reason behind this little shopping trip was my one of my friend’s upcoming birthday (she was obviously not with us, because that would have ruined the whole birthday present surprise). The day was young and we were just having fun without caring too much about what to get for the birthday girl yet.

But after a few hours and probably one too many milk cocktails, we realized that the day is coming to an end and we haven’t found the right present yet, nor did we have much money left on us (those chocolate milkshakes can be ridiculously expensive). In the end, we decided that we won’t buy any presents for our friend, but rather try to find them online.

After all, you do not always go to a shopping mall to buy something; it is quite often that you go there just to spend some quality time with your friends, and then go home and buy your stuff online.

And that is exactly what we did.

I Wanted To Write About Something Dirty, But My Blog Is Supposed To Be Squeegee. I Mean, PG. @ZabadaClean

112 Thoughts

kids in bathroomYeah, originally I wanted to write and complain a little bit about my kids toilet clogging again since someone actually managed to stuff a whole potato in the commode.

But I still can’t find enough words in the English language to describe what happened to the house after the toilet was flushed.

However, what happened after when I got all of my children in the same room will go down in Mom Madhouse history.

Anyhow, since I’m still trying to figure out how to get the seven-year-old down from the ceiling after she floated to top of the house,  I thought I’d share a secret with all of you about something I’ve always wanted for cleaning purposes, but never had.

And it seems like the perfect time to share my desire with you since I’ve been stuck cleaning walls, ceilings, mirrors, floors and toilets for what seems like days now.

Are you ready? Promise not to laugh?

I, Sharon…the Mad Mom, have always wanted my very own squeegee.

What? Is that not normal?

And thanks to the folks at Zabada, I finally have one. And it’s mine! All mine!

Have Your Kids Been Making Fun Of Your High School Tunes? Well Then, HERE’S JHONNY! @jkandkrew

62 Thoughts

Yeah, I’ve just always wanted to say “Here’s Jhonny,” and now I have. YAY!

Today the mad mom is doing something different. I’m asking for your help for someone,. But first, let me give you a quick run down on what I’m up to.

I’m going to be inserting four different music video’s, why…well, let me tell you why.

I’m a child of the best music decade. EVAH! And that would be the glorious 80’s! The era of big hair, mini skirts, acid washed anything and really radical tunes.

God I miss the 80’s… *sniff, sniff*

So I’m really picky about any music I let penetrate my ear drums, and yeah…the kids are always making fun of me because I clean the house to Queensryche, fold the socks to Tesla, wipe the baseboards to Def Leppard and attack the toilets to Metallica.

Dude…I totally rule…

Luckily for me I’ve found some peace amongst us and some common music we both like.

Broccoli, Celery, Gotta Be…Come On Now, Sing It With Me! VeggieTales! Giveaway For The New DVD!

59 Thoughts

veggie talesI’d like to know if there is any child on this planet who doesn’t like singing vegetables, because if there is I’d like to adopt them.

Like now, please. Thank you.

Okay, okay…I’ll stop and get down to important blogging here.

Lil’ ole’ moi was offered an opportunity to receive the DVD of the brand new VeggieTales movie, Beauty and the Beet.

Yippee!

Only, I didn’t let the kids on it because I wanted it to be a surprise…Oh Lawrd, when will I ever learn?

Trying to keep anything secret from the kids is like trying to eat the last Tollhouse cookie in my closet.

They always find out.

Which means they get all the fun when a package arrives and I have to sit here like like a one legged Halloween witch with a broken broom.

Anyhow, when the package was opened the two younger kids were excited to see that we had received a cute little tote bag and a flash drive loaded with all sorts of fun facts about VeggieTales along with the DVD.

Now, just for a moment I want you to close your eyes and imagine two children, one boy, one girl, one seven, one nine, fighting over who the DVD was for.

Wanna know how I ended that fight?
