These holiday cleaning tips post are brought to you by Swiffer® as part of a Type-A Parent Community Sponsored Post. Holidays are stressful. Whether you are hosting or traveling for them, cleaning is one of the last things you want to worry about. I know when I’m traveling, I like to leave the house spotless, […]
Let’s face it. These days the options our families have are:
Mom is happy, Kids get attention, Family is fed a healthy meal, House is a wreck.
Mom is happy, Kids get attention if they are on facebook chat, Family is fed any meal (don’t get picky y’all. Pizza is a food group!), House is less of a wreck.
Mom is happy, Kids get left to fend for themselves, Family is fed a semi-healthy meal, House is still sort of a wreck, but decent enough for a surprise visitor.
Mom is not happy, Kids get attention, Family is fed a healthy meal, House is so clean you could eat off the floor.
Okay, or maybe those are the options in MY house.

I don’t want to clean. I loathe it. Hell, I even hired people to come clean FOR me twice a month. But here I sit, in a dirty office with a cluttered kitchen and a mountain of laundry to do. I need to get dinner ready and take kids to karate and help with homework, […]
Now, I love the concept behind ChoreWars, but it needs a girly touch! If I knew how to program games, I would design one like this, but much cuter. I mean, would it kill the designers to put up a pastel color or have cuter avatars?? In any case, the gals in our forums love […]
I’ve been lusting over this washer and dryer every time I see an Electrolux commercial with Miss Kelly Ripa herself. These commercials are so cute! I was honored to get the chance to let you all know about a special project Electolux and Kelly are teaming up for. Electrolux and brand ambassador Kelly Ripa are […]
$#!t! Ooooh boy, he’s lucky his daddy had to work all night so I couldn’t be loud when I found this… This is only one of the 5 (FIVE!) cushions he colored on. Just last week he drew a nice picture on my off white dining room chair (yes, I’m a masochist for owning such […]
My husbands family are all dentists! His Dad, Brother, Uncle and Cousin have a practice in Lakewood, Colorado. I’m constantly reminded about how to keep teeth healthy and bright. Here are five simple things you can do for your child to help keep their smiles healthy and bright. 1. Brush. D’uh! But you’d be surprised […]
No really, it does. All those SuperMoms out there who “LOVE” it are liars and cheats. Now I should preface this post with a confession. I have housekeepers. Not the live-in, clean everyday type, but a Mom & Daughter team that comes and rescues me every other week from my messy brood and cluttered kingdom. […]
