Frazzled but Happy Stay-at-Home Mom

I loved this one that I wrote a few weeks ago when someone told me to "grow up, have a family and write about something that matters." So I tried it. And yes, I am still on vacation. And probably drunk right now.

Frazzled But Happy Stay-at-Home Mom writes:

Oh my stars, you won't believe the day I had today, dear blog readers. First off, I awoke to the smell of coffee. That's right! My husband got up before me and made coffee and it's not even Mother's Day! (But our anniversary is coming up if a certain someone is reading this. Hee hee! LOL!) I went into the kitchen and saw my darling hubby drinking his coffee and reading the newspaper over the sink. He told me he couldn't sleep and that's why he had already gotten up and made coffee. Oh well, I thought it was for me. But he's still the bestest husband in the whole world. LOL!!. He went off to work and I set about my day.

I went to wake up Suzy Lou and she looked so cute in her Strawberry Shortcake sheets that I didn't have the heart to wake her up. She was wrapped up like a mummy and I almost laughed so hard that it would have woken her up. Lucky for me, she sleeps like a log so she didn't hear me. LOL! I took a picture of her so I will be posting it as soon as I get a chance. I went to wake up her brother Billy Boo. The little angel had thrown his Thomas the Tank blanket off the bed and he wasn't covered up at all. My goodness, I hope he wasn't cold last night. (Reminder to self: set the alarm for the middle of the night to make sure he is still covered up.) He woke up and rubbed his little eyes and asked me if he could have pancakes. And guess what! I couldn't resist! So even though today was bacon and egg day, I made him pancakes. A mother's work is never done, LOL. I still made Suzy Lou her scrambled egg whites and crispy bacon so my morning routine was a little off. It really threw me in a tizzy to be so off schedule but sometimes we moms just have to let the kids know how special they are and be wild and crazy. It's these special memories that make being a stay-at-home mom such a blessing. Praise God and all his blessings, Amen. LOL!!

The kids had a play date today and their friends Peter, Paul and Mary came over. Their mom Jenny is a doll and we love that our kids enjoy each other so much. Plus when Jenny comes over we will split a glass of White Zinfandel so we moms have our own "play date" too. Shhh! Don't tell my husband that I was drinking on the job. He might fire me!! LOL! Just kidding. He would never fire me for that. As long as I have dinner on the table when he gets home from work, he is happy. Besides, I know he reads this anyway. (Hi honey! I wuv you!)

After the play date was over, I put the kids down for a nap. I read them a story first and Billy Boo did the cutest thing. He wanted to read the story to me!! Can you believe it? So he took the book and "read" to me. It was darling! I videotaped the whole thing and I will be posting it soon so you can see for yourself how precious it was. And Suzy Lou played along and pretended that he was reading too. She is such a good big sister, isn't she?? Hugs to her. I LOVE MY KIDS!!

I spent the rest of the day doing my usual routine. Laundry, dusting, sewing, gardening, and then I capped it off with churning some homemade butter. That class I took at the Learning Annex on turn of the century homemaking is really paying off! My husband will be so pleased when he gets home and sees that yummy butter on the table! Maybe tonight we will finish off that White Zinfandel and have our own romantic evening. (hee hee!) After the dishes are washed and the kids are in bed of course.

And there you have my day, dear bloggers. I have the best life in the world. The most perfect family!! And I love that I can blog about something that really matters.

love,

The Frazzled but Happy Stay-at-Home Mom

You have no idea how happy this just made me! It's the most hilarious thing I've read in a while. Unfortunately, it wasn't far from the truth. I see millions of these stupid parent blogs that post pictures every time a kid changes clothes.
Keep bitching! Rita

next time someone sees a mommy blog then someone should send the link to this post.
i think cat blogging should be adressed also

I'm a "stay at home" mom, and I get nauseated reading those parenting blogs. I like to think that after they post, they down a bottle of gin, smoke some crack, and bang the next door neighbor (those pix I might like to see!) I'm too busy exposing my kid to classic culture like Rocky Horror and Priscilla Queen of the Desert to blog about breakfast (leftover pasta, BTW).

Ha i love your post! It is so true, I get so tired of reading about everyones family. the pictures are cute and all, but after a while... who really cares right? lol Anyway just wanted to say great post, love your humor its very much like mine. :-)

Ashleigh said...

I absolutely loathe those stupid parenting blogs; they are so boring and make everything appear so perfect (lies!). Thank you, this was hilarious.

Rima Kaur said...

LOL!

Ayla said...

Loved this.

I may not have the most exciting, glamorous life in the world, but if my existence is ever reduced to giving a shit what some snot nosed brat wants to eat in the morning, or caring about what a piece of shit man thinks of my afternoon drinking habits, please just kill me. Seriously.

Mr. Bitchy Waiter, I feel it's nessessary to tell you just how amazing your blog is. Every post is funny and some are viciously hilarious---I really liked this one, and your one on the blind man and his 'gay dog' had me in hysterics! I've never read a blog that's so down-to-earth and snarky and you can write about everything, not just waiter-osity. Thank you for making waiter-ism and just everyday life so fascinating. :D

I hope you write a book some day.

Donda said...

I have to say you have really outdone yourself this time. It seems the more of a peckersnot you are, the more I love you!!

Andrew said...

is this for real??? i mean really, is it?

Drewcifer said...

That's awesome! Sometimes when I'm bored I'll go to a blog and hit that "Next Blog" link up top that takes you to another random blog. I end up bouncing through about 50 pages like these before I find one that is remotely interesting. Whatever happened to putting in a nice letter with your xmas cards?

Danielle said...

First, Love your blog. Second, I am one of those momy bloggers but not THOSE mommy bloggers, the one you right about, which actually made me throw up a bit in my mouth too. One of those mommy bloggers are either drunk, high or putting on a mom front, because that's not how it is or how I'd want it to be. If someone where to visit my blog and that is what my writing was like, I'd stop blogging! lol! Love your blog, you crack me up daily!

You should read my post, Little White Lies, this is reality!

Oh my stars, that made me laugh so loud I almost woke my brother up! LOL!

I hate people who talk like that about their sad boring lives. Hilarious, keep bitching!

I enjoyed reading this post here. It’s heart warming to read something from a stay at home mom that shares experiences that brings smiles and laugh to its readers. Because I did came across some blogs that are more of complaints in life and boredom. I couldn’t read those it adds up stress rather than brightening our day.
Thanks
