Mommy Monday

mommy-monday2

 

As soon as I sat down to write this blog, my son ran up to me. “Momma! MOMMA!” I turn my head and see he is completely naked from the waist down. Oh, and what’s that on his tushie and legs?

Yeah, it was poop.

His dirty diaper was about five feet away.

I frantically grabbed him and kept him at arms length so I could get him cleaned before I started to clean the poop from the carpet. That’s basically life with a toddler. For a more in-depth look, just watch this Thriller parody by Vintage Marquee Lights…

 

Its pretty much like that.

Try It Tuesday

Fair warning, guys: today’s Try It Tuesday is about to get real, real fast.

 

The other night, my tummy was in some major pain. No, it was nausea. It was…. The other thing. Or, lack of the other thing.

Yep. That’s what I’m talking about.

 

Anyway, I heated up the rice bag and laid it on my tummy whilst moaning and groaning to an oblivious Huff the Hubs who was sucked into his world on Minecraft. I tried to distract myself and got on Pinterest and saw my sister sent me a pin. This pin:

It was titled: “The Magic Poop Button”.

 

(Yep. I just went there.)

 

Intrigued, I clicked the link. It took me to a blog written by a mom that had tried this on one of her kids. She said she had “almost instant success” so I tried it out.

 

What you do is, you lie down on your back, measure three fingertip widths down from your belly button, and then push that point with your finger.

 

This acupressure is supposed to help with backups and ease the pain.

 

So, I thought, “What the heck?” and tried it.

 

I measured and then pressed down as hard as I could, stopping short of “holy ^%$# this is agony!” territory. Though I didn’t have “instant success”, it did help with the pain after about a minute! I was even able to fall asleep! I could not believe it!

 

Take that, people that say acupressure is hokum!

 

Now, in an effort to take your mind off of bowel movements and make today’s post a little less gross, I have another Try It for you.

 

All over Pinterest there are life hacks, teacher hacks, mom hacks, etc. While perusing Pinterest, I found this:

 

hair style hacks

 

Its lazy girl hair hacks!

This is perfect for me because: 1. I’m so lazy when it comes to my hair and 2. I am hair illiterate. I blame my chubby, non-nimble fingers for my lack of ability to make my hair look awesome. Do you know how many times I have tried and failed at doing the sock bun? Too many to count.

 

Moving on…

 

I tried one that didn’t look too difficult. This one:

hair hacks

 

So here’s my before:

And here’s the after:

Yeah, not so much. My hair = ratchet. I told you I suck at this! I just need someone to come over and do my hair for me. (Hear that, Morgan? I’m talking about YOU!)

 

Have you ever tried any of these hacks? Did they work for you? What about the other Try It?

Fan Girl Friday

Happy Friday everyone!

You’ve survived another workweek and I survived my first week back to work! (Technically I wasn’t at work since I work from home, but still…)

Even though I’ve been juggling work and Hermione, I’ve still found time to scour the interwebs to find some awesomely nerdy finds for you fangirls and boys!

Let do this!

Its officially fall, y’all. The high today in OKC was 54! And this weather means chilly nights! So grab a hot steaming cup of Madame Rosmerta’s hot cocoa and cuddle up with a copy of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them while wearing this:

"Red hair and a hand-me-down-robe?"

“Red hair and a hand-me-down-robe?”

Represent your house while watching an HP marathon! There’s Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw to choose from! Magical powers not included.

 

Get ready to rock game night through all of space, cowboy! Check out the new Firefly game!

"You can't take the dice from me."

“You can’t take the dice from me.”

From what I understand, its a little bit of Firefly and a little bit of Settlers of Catan. Here’s the description on Amazon: “Players begin with a ship, and travel from planet to planet, hiring crew, purchasing ship upgrades, and picking up cargo to deliver (jobs) all in the form of cards.” Some of the cargo is illegal but the fun is not!

 

Working from home has its advantages: staying in my jammies, being able to have Netflix on in the background, and yes: spying on the neighbors. In our old building, there was a lot to watch/overhear (I wasn’t “snooping”. If you stand outside yelling at each other, you’ve suspended all rights to privacy. You’ve also given me the right to call the cops and watch from my peephole.) Our new building isn’t as exciting… I may need to get this notebook and just watch people at the park:

Don't mind me, I'm just reading a good book...

Don’t mind me, I’m just reading a good book…

 

If you know me, you know my humor is very juvenile. I can’t help it. Farts and poop are hilarious and if you don’t find them funny, you’re dead inside. So when I saw this video I CRACKED up. I leave you this Friday with a little bit of potty humor:
