1. Oh lord you’re hilarious! SO as I aspire to be a good mommy too, shall we break it down like so: earn more, spend more, drink more, bribe more, and diaper more? I can work on all of those things! But, am I ahead of you in “mommying” if I once put a diaper OVER a diaper, within 5 minutes? I’m just askin’…

      I once took the diaper off, wiped the child and proceeded to put his footy pj’s back on without a diaper. I figured out my mistake soon enough…

  2. LMAO! Seriously. I can relate on a lot of these levels — except I do not have diapers to change at the moment. I have struggled with the Kohl’s issue, myself. And, I have to admit, I literally laughed out loud at “So what I hear you saying is ‘Mimosas’?” Ha! I needed that. Thank you.

      Kohl’s taunts me all the time with their coupons and if I have Kohl’s cash, I WILL spend it. Glad you enjoyed and thanks for commenting!

      Haha – maybe one day. I can’t bring myself to put ads up or any of that, but I did accept my first paying gig from BlogHer for May and am psyched about that! Thanks for reading!

  3. Love it. The diaper one was my favorite. You get points for presentation, surely? I wouldn’t worry too much cause what are they going to do, fire you? Haha. We wish!

      Seriously, I am pretty sure I have some job security simply because no one can even stand to babysit here for more than a couple days :o)

    Your copious research aside, I think you’re doing an excellent job. Hell, I’d hire you.

    You’re fairing much better than I am in the spending/earning category: I just sold a basketload of Scotty and Kennedy’s designer clothes on eBay…only to turn right around and blow all of my earnings on completely useless shit…also on eBay. Oh, well…

    And I don’t even bother drinking coffee while they are awake. No, I do it only when they are alseep. It is my drug, and it is best consumed when I am alone. lol

    • Susan Maccarelli

      I can see you getting your coffee buzz on when they are asleep. Do you get up before them just to drink coffee or do you drink while they are napping or at night? I must know.

        “Do you get up before them just to drink coffee?”

        Hells no. K gets up so early, that if I got up to swig my coffee beforehand, it would totally defeat the purpose of drinking coffee.

        No, I only get my drink on while they are napping.

  5. This is awesome! I just found your blog, and plan to continue to read it (hopefully that will help pay the bills). I thought I was the only mom with those types of diaper experiences! It’s now 10am and the kids haven’t eaten breakfast. Figure they’re happily playing and mustn’t be hungry. It’s just one of those mornings where I wanna be the 3yr old and do it MY WAY for once! Again, so glad to feel like I’m not the only one with these types of Mommy of the Year Moments! 🙂

      I feel like by waiting until 10 am for the first diaper change I am doing my duty to test the limits of Target brand diapers – so far they rock! It is kinds like how I let my gas tank get down to below 0 before I fill it up. Its a fun game. Glad you found me and thanks fir visiting!

  6. This is hilarious and made my day!
    Just wanted to say thank you for visiting my blog and saying hello earlier! I am looking forward to reading your feature posts!

      My daughter’s face fluctuates from that to a screaming tantrum and in between, but there is not a lot of smiling on the spectrum. She is a serious one.

  7. This made me laugh out loud! Kohl’s always gets me with that cash – I feel like I HAVE to go back in and spend it (and then some). Brilliant marketing! Thanks for making me smile today 🙂
