Your Lips are Moving

I have been loving these Mom parody videos lately. To me, no one does them better than Deva from  Her videos seem to always hit home for me, with a pretty humorous tone.

The latest video is to Meghan Trainor’s “Lips are moving”. How true is this video for us Moms!? I have felt like I have had to repeat everything lately. They have managed the fine art of tuning me out.

Yesterday my neighbor was over with her daughter. When we went to give them a 5 minute warning for clean up, they didn’t respond. We yelled upstairs, whistled, made all sorts of noises, and folks we got not a single response. Ironically I turned to my neighbor and said, “my lips are moving, right?” We both laughed about it and headed upstairs to round up the scoundrels.

Here’s the video,and I hope you enjoy Deva as much as I do!

This is life!

I swear I can’t make this up! Last night the boys were talking to eachother, in song, for about a half hour. After listening to this for what seemed like forever, I finally made this video:

Again, for the record, we don’t spank them. I actually don’t believe in it. At the end Alex had grabbed the video camera that was in that room, hence the yelling. They are wild. This is why we have wine folks.

Mommy’s Night Out: The Key To A Happy Home

My friend Brandyn over at Life, Motherhood, and The Pursuit of Happiness   posted this entry today about the importance of a Mom’s Night Out. I could not agree with this more. As a Stay At Home Mom, it is very easy to get into a funk. Its not that we don’t love our children, and being around them. Its that loss of normal adult interaction in a fun setting. Birthday Parties, and bus stop waits don’t really cut it.

Every once in awhile its great to go out with just friends, or Husband for a dinner, drinks, or something else. Once out, you really appreciate not asking a child to  not do something, relaxing, maybe having a drink, and talking about something other than kids. If you’re out with other Mom’s it can be a great time to talk about kids. This is when you find out, perhaps your kids quirks aren’t quirks after all! We all chat, laugh about whats going on, and have those oh my God moments.

When I stayed home after having Colin and Alex I was outrageously lonely. I didn’t know any other Moms at 22-25, so I really stayed home. Its isolating, and depressing. Having friends, and these nights out isn’t just great for you, but your marriage. When I’ve gone out, or if Eli and I have date night we are so much happier. We get to have fun, not repeat for the kids to go to bed, no dishes, or interrupting. Its really just us!

So, head on over to the link below and checkout Brandyn’s entry!

Trash the Toxins

I’m a member of The Mom Bloggers Club Network, and they recently gave us the Trash the Toxins Challenge. After getting an F rating in our home, I realized we needed a change in our home. Its easy to buy big brand products because of how they can be on sale, but there is a consequence for this as well.


There are many problems in today’s world that make you wonder what may be causing them. I definitely believe a lot of these chemicals are to blame. These chemicals cause skin irritation, can cause breathing problems, and more. They have already proven that some of these chemicals link to cancer, but we continue to use them! We will definitely be going more organic in our home!

Check out our video here:

Disclaimer: After this video I should rename my blog the Frumpy Mummy. I said I’m unfiltered, right? Well, I’m also unedited 😉 This would be my everyday, only going to the bus stop look. No make up, yoga pants, and hair up! No I’m not pregnant, the shirt is my husbands, and my yoga pants aren’t rolled over lol. Its real though, and its me, co-starring Colin, with guest appearances by Gatsby, and sound drops from Alex! Enjoy!
