A Relaxed Mom Does for Three for Thursday

I’m finding that since I’ve been spending more time on the floor with Norton, I’m feeling more relaxed… and I think that’s helping me be a better mom.  It’s certainly nicer to be a relaxed mom than a stressed out one who is feeling like she’s on the edge of a cliff.  I’m enjoying it.  And I’m enjoying writing relaxed blog memes, too, like Evelyn’s Three for Thursday.

Three things I stole from my kids’ Halloween candy stash:
1.) Kit Kats
2.) Aero bar
3.) Werther’s Original [Read more…]

A Fun Mommy Three for Thursday

It’s easy for me to lose sight of doing fun mommy things when I feel pretty rundown.  Thankfully, my friend Evelyn is good at reminding me to let the fun mommy out with a simple little Three for Thursday meme.

Three objects to my left:
1.) Winston the Wonder Chihuahua
2.) A dog bone
3.) A wireless keyboard

Three songs I can’t get out of my head:
1.) The Letter T song from Sesame Street (grr…)
2.) Radar Love by Golden Earring
3.) Sweet Transvestite from the Rocky Horror Picture Show (Tim Curry version, please!)

Three favorite Halloween movies (or songs):
1.) John Carpenter’s Halloween
2.) The Rocky Horror Picture Show
3.) The Exorcist

Three things I’ve learned to just let go of:
1.) People who don’t value me.  If I’m not important to them, why on earth would I continue to let them be important to me?
2.) Clothes that don’t fit.
3.) Clutter that I don’t need.

Three reasons I could wear the Super Woman costume on Halloween:
1.) I’m growing a baby.  That’s a feat in and of itself.
2.) I manage to keep a somewhat clean house, even on days that I can’t really walk.  (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction sucks.)
3.) The costume bodice actually looks like it would be supportive enough to wear without a bra.
