We are SO excited to start the giveaways today! We hope to start having them more often and we do have others lined up which you’ll love! TODAY though we’re starting with Greta of GREMADCHA because people went crazy for her headbands when we posted them on Addie and Alivia! Remember these?
I mean how could you NOT remember those sweet girls in those TO DIE FOR headbands? SO cute! It is safe to say we are a bit obsessed with Greta’s work and can’t wait to show you her new NEWBORN hats she made and is letting us try out this weekend on little Marin who will be in the studio on Sunday!
So. First. Go HERE and read Greta’s awesome blog b/c she’s hysterical and knows how to keep it real! Second go HERE and shop till you drop! Support a mom-run business b/c you seriously can’t get better than that!
Then leave a comment here with your most REAL mom moment from this week thus far and we’ll pick the best one! OR maybe we’ll do it randomly if we can’t decide! Let’s get REAL ladies (or dads if there is a guy who’s going gaga over these headbands as well!) and leave your funniest REAL mom moment!
If all goes well I’ll pick the winner sometime tomorrow when we also announce the WINNERS of the free nominated Mohr Mini sessions! Fun stuff and happy shopping!
OH and DUH… you’re winning one of her AWESOME headbands!
My son threw up the other night, I cleaned it up or so I thought, find dog licking the floor a few minutes later… yep, that’s my real mom moment for the week, disgusting… I don’t have a daughter to wear the cute headband so pick someone else, I just wanted to share in the fun! Very cute headbands by the way, they are adorable on these little babies!
My real “dad” moment was hearing my 1yr old son giggle in the bathroom with a splashing sound. I ran in there only to discover that my 3yr old daughter had gone “poop” and didn’t flush. My son thought the “floaters” were toys… I’ll spare you all the details. But needless to say there was a bath and LOTS of bleach involved.
My “real mom” moment this week happened Sunday night. We had just gotten all three kids to sleep and done all the routine Sunday night house straightening, lunch making, and laying clothes out for Monday. We were finally about to watch the Oscars… that we of course had DVRed so we could watch in peace… when all the sudden the tornado sirens went off. Just as they went off, so did my 14 week pregnant hormones telling me I needed to get to the bathroom quick! So there I am, holding my head over the toilet, hail beating down on my house, sirens going off, the 15 month old twins freaking out and the three year old running out of his bedroom to find out what is going on outside and in the bathroom… just as the POWER WENT OUT. I truly felt like I was in the twilight zone!
Both my kids wet the bed, on separate nights, but I have yet to wash the sheets so they are sleeping in sleeping bags in bed with no matteress pads or fitted sheet. And I kinda love it because there is no bed to make!
My real mom moment this week was sending my son to school in pants that were to short(think flood waters) because I forgot to switch the load of laundry around before I went to bed. Oops sorry Austin :0
Love the headbands by the way!
Oh mine isn’t funny, but Miles has been struggling since the baby came. He’s been acting out a bit and it’s been a rough last couple of pick up’s at preschool. (He’s great at school, but runs away from me and melts on the floor when I try to take him home. It’s VERY embarressing.) Well, today the preschool director came up to me and said, “You should have coffee with Aiden’s mom because she struggles with behavioral issues too.” WHAT!?! Oh crap, now I’m labeled as a “son with behavioral issues?” Crappppp. Those are not fun words to hear. So I dragged Miles to the van and cried the whole way home.
That story is so NOT funny at all, but it was real. Here’s hoping things improve or heck, that I win a headband and get in a better mood! 😉
Okay, I don’t want to win my own headband but I can’t resist commenting.
YESTERDAY EVENING: Husband is working late last minute so my mother in law is on her way over so I can go to a teacher/ parent conference. I am frantically cleaning so my mother in law won’t think her son married a walking DISASTER.
5 year old is HYSTERICAL because I did not get her the right book at the book fair, 1 year old is sitting bewildered and alone in crib, 3 year old’s whereabouts are unknown, 6 year old is STARVING and trying to rummage in pantry and the dog is most likely roaming the streets unattended while I attempt to make my kids fried chicken for the first time ever, seriously I just learned that white and dark meat is not randomly “swirled” throughout poultry LAST YEAR. I did get all the dried toothpaste cleaned up and the crap everywhere picked up but my kids didn’t even eat the damn chicken, only the canned mandarin oranges I gave them to attempt to look like I know how to feed my children by adding a splash of color. NOT AWESOME.
my whole life is a real mommy moment (whose isn’t?), but here’s one you can all relate to: i put both girls down for “naps,” race around the house doing odds & ends of cleaning/laundry/dishes/chaos abatement & then have about 30 minutes to myself. HALLELUJAH! so i take a shower for the first time in a few days- even shave my legs. i decide to go the whole 9 yards & put on lotion & even trim my toenails, which i am in the middle of when i hear knocking on the door. LOUD knocking. i assume it’s urgent because it doesn’t stop, so i quickly grab clothes & wrap my head in a towel & run downstairs- falling down a few of them- to find a woman standing on the porch with her dog. turns out she is a neighbor from a few streets over & just wondered if we had gotten any of her mail… totally not worth skipping my lotion & pedicure time. and she woke the kids up with her insane knocking. not the worst moment ever, but certainly annoying!
So, these headbands are adorable and I was trying to think of a funny (or sad) mom moment in the past week. After reviewing the entire last week in my head I am embarrassed to admit…..it has gone shockingly well. I have not had a mom moment in quite a while. Feel free to storm my house and lynch me. I’m sure my streak of good luck is about to run out!
so….my 4 month old daughter, Stevie, and I were just chilling…she was taking her bottle…all of a sudden i smelled something rank. like sulfur rank. then the flood of warm liquids spilled out onto me. her first blowout diaper…along with the pea. we both were covered…jumped in the tub…and started the day over clean. moments like these make me giggle…and glad that i’m a mom. 🙂 love my stevie-girl so much. love the headband too!
Firstly, LOVE LOVE LOVE these headbands, they are gorgeous! I couldnt agree more on our lives being MOMMY moment after mommy moment.
This morning while trying to get ready for work and get both kids ready for daycare and dealing with EXTREME queasy feelings from being 11 weeks preggo with our 3rd baby, I had to get sick in the sink in front of BOTH kids in the bathroom, my daughter said it’s okay Mommy you ” burped” *( her word for throwing up), both kids rubbed my back and gave me a hug, it made me count my blessings right then and there !!!!!
Here’s my “real mom” moment for the week so far…..I was taking a shower with my 2 year old twins. This is necessary to do because Dad is traveling and I only have a small window of time to get everyone bathed (myself included) before the 6 month old wakes up. The 3 of us are in the shower when I look down and notice a pile of poop on the shower floor! It was a complete momement of panic as the water was pounding down on it spreading it around while the twins continued to dance around and play in its wake. What do you do?!?! There’s only so much room in the tiny shower! Needless to say I threw them out of the shower soaking wet and transported them to the bath tub while slipping and sliding on the wet bathroom floor.(keep in mind I am also soaking wet with shampoo in my hair) There they continued to play while I cleaned the gross, wet, poopy shower floor naked and dripping wet which a head full of shampoo. We then all got back in the shower. It goes without saying that my husband owes me.
