Things a Mom Says

Funny things mom say

Things a Moms Says It wasn't that long ago that I rolled my eyes at my mother. I rolled my eyes because of the things a mom says to their child. Then one day I awoke and realize those same things were rolling off of my tongue. Do you know what is worse? I am saying even crazier things than my parents said to me. I figured since almost everyone who works on the Madame Deals team is a mom we would write our.. "I can't believe I really said that list." Things a Mom Says: 1) Your brother is ...

The loss of a Furry Family Member


This morning started out like any other for us, other than a storm that was brewing, everyone was sleeping peacefully, until my mother-in-law screamed my name. This is not something that anyone likes to wake up too. Losing a Pet is like losing a Family Member. This was our Furbaby Adolph (So named because of his certain style of mustache he had when he was little). When I heard that scream this morning, it was because of him. He had collapsed. We rushed him to the nearest Vet Hospital ...

I’m still a great mom..even if I have Tattoos


Would you think less of a Mom, if she had visible tattoos? Inspiration for posts can come from anywhere, funny things that happen, an interesting news story, or in this case, a hateful comment directed at you. I was shopping last night with my 4 year old, (she just had to have a Gameboy, right that second, so, being the awesome mom I am, I drove 30 miles away to a game store, in the rain, at 7 pm) when a women whom I had never seen before came up to me and tapped me on the shoulder. What came ...

thanksgiving pictures

  I was recently asked to explain why I am Thankful. That is a really loaded question. I really do not have anything not to be thankful for. I learned a long time ago that every minute counts and with every action you should think of the reaction. I know that being thankful isn't as important as setting an example. I know that being a good person helps me to be a better wife and mother. I know that if you look at a problem long enough there is a solution. I am not afraid of the work ...

Put One Foot in Front of the Other

I'll admit it ... these days I need a little motivation to do some of the most basic things.  Working two full-time jobs is starting to take its toll.  My house is not filthy but it is far from clean.  The pantry, which used to be fully stocked, is running a little bare.  Fortunately, my husband continues to do the laundry and ironing, make the bed, and transport Missy to where she needs to go. It is time to regroup and make a plan.  Here are the first few things I need to do:  make a basic ...
