9 months of pure torture, apparently…

Red: You’ll be our favorite (parent) if you give us candy.

Blue: You’ll be our favorite if you let us stay up late and watch movies.

Me: Guy’s, why can’t I just be your favorite?

Blue: Acause (because) you had us in your belly for a wong time and we were stuck and couldn’t bweathe. 


He’s his father’s child

Blue: Mom, am I a bed hog? Or only Red and Pink?

Me: Red and Pink are definitely bed hogs.

Blue: But I’m not?

Me: I’m not really sure. You don’t ever cuddle with me. You only cuddle with your dad.

Blue: I can’t cuddle with Cubs fans.


What was I thinking?!

Don’t ever try to paint when you’re home alone with 3 young children. Just don’t. It’s never a good idea. P.S…Pay the extra money for the paint + primer high cover paint. You’ll thank yourself. P.P.S….Don’t ask the childrens’ opinion on the final product. It doesn’t count anyway.

Where’s my wine?!

You’re watching what?!

Blue: Hey mom, your favorite movie is on!

Me: Which one?

Blue: Transylvania with a Chance of Meatballs.

Me: What?! 

Blue: Transylvania with a Chance of Meatballs.

Me: What did you say?!  (At this point I knew what he was saying, but hearing it again was just too good to miss.)

Blue: Transylvania with a Chance of Meatballs! (Getting noticably mad.)

Red: That not what it’s called. 

Blue: Ya know, the one where that boy makes the food fall from the sky 

Red: I know what movie it is. That not what it’s called! Gosh!

They had me at FREE wine…

If you could drink wine for free and earn a supplemental income while doing so, would you? Here’s my Top 10 Reasons why this is one of the best decisions you’ll make.

🍷Wine is easy. I drink it, and if I can get it for free and help others get it for free, then count me in.

🍷Everybody loves wine. And if they don’t, they know at least a handful of people who do. There are no before and after pictures needed. No list of ingredients. No competition. It’s wine. I don’t have to convince anyone wine works.

🍷My husband told me to do what makes me happy, and when mama’s happy, we’re all happy. #tipsforthefellas

🍷It doesn’t hurt my skincare business and it doesn’t compete. I can still do facials, serve free wine and people will actually SHOW up. That goes for all networkers. #hint Wine can another revenue stream that pays your mortgage.

🍷If you’ve been in network marketing before, you know it can be TIRING (being honest here). I don’t have endless free time. Who does?! Wine is EASY and everybody loves it, especially when it’s free.

🍷I get a 50% profit off every kit I sign. And my people do too! #heckyea #mortgagepaid #helpingpeoplewin

🍷There are currently 10,000 people in the company and THIS is what we call ground floor. And it’s freaking BOOMING, might I add (timing and positioning is everything).

🍷People don’t have time for businesses, but they always have time for wine. It’s a social thing.

🍷Network marketing is my option to fire my boss. It’s my option to give myself a much deserved raise.

🍷Because I don’t CARE what people think. I want time freedom. I want more time with my kiddos. If I can find something like this that’s FUN, SIMPLE and easy for others to learn, I’m IN. I do what makes sense,makes me happy, makes me money and something I can take ownership in. Other people don’t pay my bills. #iwishtheydid

So that’s why. Easy enough, right?! I’m enjoying it. It doesn’t feel like a job, and everyone can DO it. And duh, it’s WINE.

Soak it all in….

As I sit here and rock this napping baby, all I can think about are the hundreds of other things I should be doing (laundry, dishes, cleaning, painting….). And then I feel guilty. These are the moments that matter…that are gone in the blink of an eye. So, I’m going to soak this moment up. I’m going to enjoy the quiet and watch my baby sleep. Because it won’t be long and she’ll be an independent,  sassy teenager.#lifeistooshort #babiesdontstaybabies #itstooquiet

Double Trouble!

Red: Hey brudder, do you ‘member that time I pushed the lock when we in the car? And dad was outside and had to call the police and fire twucks?! 

Blue: Yeah, that was so super funny. 

Red: Yeah, we should do that again.
