Children think they know.. but they have noooo idea!

I can live without ‘blank’

I don’t diet. I love food. I am a chocoholic. I have a sweet-tooth. Fried cheesy food is my weakness!
My New Year’s resolution was to work on my budgeting. Get some debt paid off, save some money. But I feel like I should do more. I could do more. I have been fighting with myself about giving something up to become healthier. Trying to go without something for awhile. Ill start with a goal of 1 month, if I succeed at 1 month, I might go for 2 months, or add something else.
But what is something?

I could live without coffee Wow that was a horrible thing to even think!
I would be able to live without sweets for awhile. The holidays are over and the candy stash at home is dwindling down. I don’t HAVE to eat 4 Hershy kisses a day, as much as I enjoy it..

I want my something to challenge me. I want to better myself, I want to feel better about myself, mentally and physically. Its a new year! HELLO 2013! How am I going to start this new year of becoming a better me?

What have you been able to live without that was a challenge, but you are so glad that you did??

Alcohol? Chocolate? Sugar? Meat? Bread?

This momma needs some help!

Mom knows Better

Mom always tends to know better than child. I don’t know how that works. As a child, you believe that you run the world and know it all. You have that “Duh” mentality when it comes to.. well.. almost everything. But as you grow up, you start to realize:

  • mom WAS once your age
  • she DOES know what its like to be a kid, teenager, younger/older/middle sibling, grounded..
  • 98% of the time she IS right
  • she DOES know what she is talking about
  • when she says NO, she means it
  • and if you think you got away with something, you didn’t, Mom knew about it

¬†“Maybe mom does¬†knows what she’s¬†talking about… naaaahhhhh” ūüėČ

Dylan and I got a yucky 24 hour stomach bug the other day. Dylan’s started at 10:30pm on¬†Monday. What did he want when he didn’t feel good? To cuddle with his mom. What did I want when I had a sick child clinging to me a pile of yuck on the bed? My mom. Luckily, I live with my parents, so mom was just a holler away.

Midnight:¬†Another round of sick, a clingy¬†yucked up child, I grab my cell and call my mom.. she is only downstairs, but I don’t want to wake the whole house by yelling! She helps me clean up,¬† remake the bed, layer it with towels, and get some new jammies.¬† “Mom? What gets the puke smell out of the mattress?” She had¬†the answer.¬† And it was better than my¬†‘scrub with hot water’ idea. ¬†

Tuesday morning, Dylan was feeling much better, but still feverish and crabby. I knew to only give him small sips of clear liquids, flat 7-Up, and bland foods. ¬†He¬†tolerated the 7-Up and ¬†did not want to eat anything. ¬†I was starting to feel the yuck coming on.. so I ate a bowl of cereal and had two cups of coffee. Whoops just contradicted myself there.. Now I’m¬†not feeling too hot, and I ask my mom “What can I take to make my stomach feel better?” She had the answer. And it was better than my “drink more coffee” idea.

Amazing how you can know all the answers, yet still need to ask all the questions.

In the end, the bug passed in less than 24 hours, we are all alive and well, and my mattress doesn’t smell. True Life: Mom knows Better

What would we do without moms?!
