The other night I was walking through the store and got a text from my niece. She said, “You know what you should write about? Your anxiety when you were a kid. I don’t know if you still have it, but I think that would be cool to read.” My fingers typed, “That’s a great idea! I’m writing about that this week!” My brain said, “Shut up…You aren’t writing that! No one will read it. Who do you think you are writing about something like that?” Because, yep I still have it and that voice is super ugly some days.
Christmas is right around the corner! Are you all done shopping? Me? Nope! I'll be finishing up at like 5:45pm on December 24th, as the stores are closing down! That's just how I do it. It'd be really weird for me to not be rushing around on Christmas Eve - you could say it's kind of a tradition now. Seriously, it's just I have to find the perfect gift, and that takes time people! I hate giving the same old, same old to everyone! I love unique, no one else thought about this kind of gifts.
For those of you that want to give the "OMG, this is amazing" gifts and want to have your Christmas Eve all to yourself, I have you covered! I have been online shopping for some gifts and have found some really great, and budget friendly, amazballs things for everyone on my, and your, list! Here are a few of my favorites for women, kids and our favorite guys! Take heart in knowing these are things they won't be expecting, but will absolutely fall in love with! Wanna be the one with the best gift giving skills this year? Ok! Keep reading...and you're welcome!
I was looking through my Facebook memories and about 3 years ago the daycare kiddos and I were talking about all the things they want for Christmas. Of course, they listed every toy they could think of, but when I got to one little boy he said, "I want a Nintendo DS...and to spend time with my Mom." (Mom tears)
Let's get a couple thoughts out of the way real quick! Yes, kids are freaking nuts! They can, and will, take you to the brink of absolute insanity, on an almost daily basis. This does not necessarily get better with age, mama's just get better at handling it. (#wine) To say they are tiny narcissistic, spawns of Satan, is putting it lightly, some days. (Just saying what we're all guilty of thinking at one time or another.)
Hey Mama's! I hope you've all had a better Tuesday than I've had! I was just sitting here trying to decide whether tonight is a wine night or maybe a hot fudge brownie sundae night? Then I thought "What the hell? I'll have both!"
Then, as I'm eating a small countries share of ice cream, smothered in oh so yummy hot fudge, on top of a hot brownie, I started thinking about the holidays and how hard it can be for split families. (I know, I know - totally unrelated. If you guys could only see what goes on in my mind everyday, you'd get it.)
It's Christmas time and what mama doesn't need a little extra spending money? I think we all know the answer to that - uh, all of us! The Tipsy Mama is giving away a $50 VISA Gift Card on December 15th, 2017 at 5:00pm CST!! In plenty of time to finish up some Christmas Shopping...or maybe just grab a couple (ok, four or five) bottles of wine, all for yourself!! Keep reading to get entered!
Mom's, in my opinion, are some of the toughest, most resilient people on earth. But sometimes our self worth, and identity, gets lost when we let taking care of others consume our every day, start to compare ourselves to others, or when others thrust their (usually unwanted) opinions about how we choose to do things on to us.
Let's be clear about something...If you have spit another human out of your body (no matter how that human got here), you are amazing! You are brave! You are capable of anything, including miracles (you freaking birthed a miracle)! And you are BEAUTIFUL!
I'm a mama of three crazy, hilarious, amazing kids and the owner of an in home daycare for over 11 years.
