On Balancing Mommy-Hood + a Sick Just Got Real™ Giveaway

Being a mom is no joke. It takes everything + anything – you will give things you didn’t even know you had to give. You will dig deep, wonder what your life has come to, drink all the wine and never pee alone again!

I remember what my life was life before I had kids {not that I would change having them for anything, obviously they are keepers} BUT you seriously don’t think about all that ‘free time’ when you just have it!

Go get my nails done whenever I wanted? Sure!

Hit up Target and wander around the aisles, try anything on? Why not!

Meet friends for dinner + drinks any night on a moments notice? Let’s do it

Now {because I’m a planner and efficiency is key with two littles} everything is timed out, mapped out and has a deadline. A Target run in between naps, nursing + bedtime is quick and dirty { and we pull out every toy to entertain the littles} Dinner is usually in the early bird special timeframe – we can hit up a happy hour, as long as it’s stellar friendly, I bring all the toys, endless snack options and we are in and out in 45 minutes!  Sure, I have help from my mom + MIL that allow me a little more flexibility than most {love you two! } So I know on the days they are over, that’s when I grocery shop, do the laundry, clean the house and sneak in a mani/pedi when I can.

BUT when the littles get sick it’s a whole new ballgame! I’ve been pooped on, peed on, vomited on {constantly} but none of that matters because you just want the babes to feel better {but I will enjoy the extra cuddly sick cuddles!}


Want to win a $25 Visa gift card to treat yourself or the mom in your life {because every mom deserves a little extra spoiling!}

Leave a comment below sharing your favorite mom moment!


When sick hits the fan, your needs come last. But a mom can dream, right? Be sure to check out the Sick Just Got Real™ video for a good laugh. It’s no joke when the littles get sick, and as mom’s we will do anything to make them feel better, but still -> I am currently dreaming about the faucet that gives out red {or white!} wine into Mommy’s Sippy Cup!  Something you seriously need after dealing with a sick little! #AMomCanDream

    Definitely when my 2 year old says “love you mommy!”

    If I won, I’d give the gift card to my sister, a new mom who lives 3,000 miles away. She’s a great mom who has yet to be inducted into the “mom of a sick kid” club. I haven’t shared my stories about catching kid puke in your hands to save the carpet, or wearing unknown bodily fluids on your shirt for hours because you forgot to pack yourself a spare set of clothes or a number of other similar things. I don’t wish sick kids on anyone, but it is nice to know that us moms share that common bit of pride knowing we survived!

    When my little one looks up at me after finishing a bottle and just sighs with content. 🙂

    I love when my kids say funny things! It’s like “I created them, and look how funny they are- amazing!”

    My favorite mom moment(s) is watching my two year old with his newborn sister. It is SO sweet and makes my heart so full and happy.

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring
    blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for first-time blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    My favorite is when I get a hug. Cora gives the best hugs (especially at bedtime) where she grabs my whole head and brings it to her chest. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    My favorite mom moment was when my little one spoke his first words: mom and dad 🙂

    The way their faces light up when they see you in the morning or after naps. It is PRICELESS.

    My favorite mom moment was when my little guy took his first steps. I was so proud and overjoyed because he was trying to walk for many weeks, and then it just clicked.

    My favorite mom moment is when I go into the room to get my 7 month old as she’s waking up in the morning and she’s all smiles and kicking excitedly.

    My favorite mom moment has to be when my son comes and crawls up in my lap and gives me a big hug and says I love you, your the best mom in the world.

    Favorite moment, that makes everything in your post worth it, is my 4 year old constantly telling me he loves me and kissing my hand.

    Recently I’ve loved when my daughter wants to “cut my hair.” She’ll pick up something, like a spoon or crayon, and run it through my hair. I sit and let her little fingers play and twirl with my hair, loving every minute of it 🙂
