Mommy is on staycation right now and she will be happy to help once she gets back

When it comes to parenting, some days are nothing short of wonderful and other days well they just suck! the stress of being a mom can be overwhelming, and this morning is one of those days.
I was awaken at some ungodly hour on a Saturday morning by two bright-eyed and bushy-tailed little girls.  Which still amazes me how I have to literally drag them out of bed on the weekdays and then comes the weekend and we can’t sleep past 6am. Anyhoo, Mini me(5yo) has recently started wetting herself which has been quite stressful. She has never done this before but in the recent weeks she has started to wet at school and in the night-time. So she was soaked and we had to have a bath! Yep the sun wasn’t even out yet and we are bathing and stripping bed sheets. coffee please..can I get some coffee.. Umm no such luck, Sassy(6yo) decided to take a bath too because apparently bath time is a family affair around here. I guess they can get away with it for a while longer.
Just when I thought I could make my coffee as they were playing blissfully in the bath, I hear it! MOMMY… sigh, time to get our of the bath, dry off and now they want breakfast! Managing to slide my coffee cup under the Keurig , I begin breakfast.. At least that’s a start on the coffee front. The entire time hearing both girls decide to go from best friends to arched enemy’s fighting, pushing.. You know how it is with sisters!
Less than an hour later I hear it again! MOMMY! Yep Buddy(almost 2yo) was waking up. Here we go! thankfully I have managed to get one sip of my coffee so we wake up change diaper and get some milk. Except he wants breakfast already so Off I go! All the while hearing mommy,mommy,mommy non stop! I lost count after five hundred mommy’s I began to lose track.
The hubby was at work so it’s just me and no help, and at this point I decided to change my name to Daddy! Except that will only help once he gets home. Attempting to take a shower, again I hear mommy and of course Buddy decided to follow me! Hmm. we really need to go pick up that birthday present before the party, so I gently place him in his crib and he acts like he might actually take a nap! Score one for mommy right?
yeah umm no! I did manage to get a shower as he blissfully played in his crib but no sooner did dad get home from work and the kids were back to being little heathens! reminding the Hubby of the party I inform him that we need to run to the store, and that’s when I hear it again! MOMMY! Yep Buddy is screaming and crying like there is not tomorrow! Seriously.. So i go in to see what’s wrong when the odor struck me harsh and Sudden! He does not like to have  a dirty diaper so this explains the scream.
Getting him cleaned up and thinking I would just pass him off to daddy but there my hubby is passed out on the couch! UGGH!!!! This time I decided to take a breath, put Buddy on the couch and re group!
I am now sitting here at the computer with A new hot cup of coffee!! The girls are playing peacefully and Buddy is sitting on the couch next to his sleeping daddy! We still haven’t gotten that present and the party starts in two hours, but you know what? it will be okay. I am not sweating the small stuff, and am very thankful for coffee right now! Seriously keurig, I love you!   Enjoying the peace because it may only last five minutes with this household! So for now, Mommy is on a staycation and she will be happy to help you once she gets back!


I am a wife of ten years, mom of three, Nurse and student! My household is quite chaotic and busy. With a six year old going on sixteen. we shall call her "Sassy", a four year old, who is stubborn as a mule, she shall be called " mini me", and a one year old, we will call "Buddy". Our girls do Ballet, and our son, well he is all boy! Very curious and always getting in to something. When we found out we were having a boy i laughed and said " god must have known we needed a little less diva in our life," Ha, little boys are quite the handful! I love my kids with all of my heart, and i love my job too! As a nurse leader i get to see many sides to healthcare and help encourage and guide new nurses. I love taking care of patients and being able to have grown up talk and then come home to my babies. The house is usually chaotic with lots of tantrums, and messes, but i wouldn't change it for a bit. On the rare occasion that i am able to have some spare time to myself, i like to read, bake and decorate cakes, and take pictures of my kiddos. Time to myself is rare so i decided to start this blog to have a creative outlet and connect with other working moms, who might be going through the same situations as myself. I hope you enjoy my thoughts and stories as a mom, student, wife and Nurse! These stories will range from Diapers and tutus to meetings and boardrooms! and everything that falls in between. Enjoy and thanks for visiting my site.
