A while ago my friend Hannah introduced me to her sister, “This is Kim. She has cute babies, she bakes tasty things, she’s pretty crafty. She’s just a bad ass mother f**ker.” This is how I want everyone to introduce me from now on. I want it engraved on my tombstone. With the possible exception of my husband’s wedding vows, it is probably the nicest thing anyone has said about me. But is it true?
Well admittedly I do have cute babies. This is not bias. Just ask my friend Hannah.
How About Baking? Being Crafty?
I can bake and cook things without poisoning people, so that’s pretty cool. I craft things because it’s cheaper than buying them but there is no mistaking them for anything other than homemade.
Really A Badass?
But am I truly a bad ass mother f**ker? Well, I try to be. It’s not easy though is it? I mean, being a mom is hard. First, you have to keep your kids alive, which isn’t easy because kids do incredibly stupid things. Then, you have to try to raise them to be decent human beings. Also not easy. The other night I had to explain to my eight year old daughter why she can’t spit on her bedroom floor. Because she had spit on her bedroom floor. Then you have to worry about bullying, “helicoptering”, “new math”, and what the hell is a Hatchimal?
Why This Blog?
Because nothing, especially being a mom, is as easy as people make it look. You go online to research how to throw a Frozen themed birthday party, or how to make a healthy, quick, week night dinner that’s kid friendly, or how to make your own bouncy castle out of things around your house, and you are bombarded with pages and images that make it all look so easy.
So, I started this blog. For moms like me, who are far from perfect but know it’s the trying that matters. On here you’ll find recipes that are easy to follow, crafts that are cheap and easy to make, and (hopefully) amusing anecdotes about being a modern mom. Also, I’m pretty obsessed with Disney so expect that to come up a lot too. 🙂
