How Winter is Like A Scorned Woman

How Winter is Like A Scorned Woman

For a veteran Floridian (18 years & counting), who formally resided in the cold Northeast for majority of her life, I thank my lucky palm trees that I now live in the South. Your body gets so used to the warmth, that when you do visit the bitter cold, you feel like you are slowly being tortured by a real crazy person. After recently spending 5 days in the Northeast at my sister’s, I have come to the conclusion that winter is like a scorned woman: A real psycho bitch! You know that saying, ‘Hell hath no fury like a scorned woman’?  Hell hath no fury…

The Love Yourself Movement #MTMEShop

The Love Yourself Movement #MTMEShop

Here at The Anti Mom Blog, I am always preaching about parent’s – especially moms – making time for themselves. Whether it’s an hour or just 5 minutes, a little “me” time goes a long way. After I put the girls to bed, I typically go enjoy a nice, hot, LONG shower then watch an episode of The Real Housewives of whatever or another guilty pleasure T.V. show. Go ahead, judge away, but you know you can’t resist all that drama either! So, I was extremely excited when Fatima over at Motherhood Through My Eyes contacted be about being apart of The…

5 Parenting Contradictions That Haunt My Dreams

0

      Before getting married and having kids, my husband and I had a lot of opinions about certain parental topics and child-raising techniques. Believe me, if I could go back in time and tell us to STFU, I would. It’s humorous to even believe that we were this naive before we became parents and how strongly we felt about a few topics back then. On Mealtime Before kids: Our child will never EVER dictate to us what they want to eat. We will make one meal and one meal only. I will never be the parent that makes…

The Day I Got Mom-Shamed By A Police Officer

0

  Seeing that yesterday was Mother’s Day – a happy belated to all you moms out there! – I thought it was only appropriate to share my recent mom-shaming incident with everyone……. It was like any other sunny day running errands with the girls…except I didn’t see that motorcycle cop hiding in the bushes. I usually have ridiculous cop-radar and could spot them miles away, but today was different. I don’t know if it was the 3 year old nagging me to get her ice cream or the fact the 8 month old was crying her brains out because she…

5 Things I Learned While At Disney World

0

We spent the toddler’s 3rd birthday in the most magical place on earth – Disney World. The kids love it, we love and it is only 3 hours away so why the hell not, right? Well, as we were herding through the crowds of Magic Kingdom, I couldn’t help but people watch and observe all things grand. And by grand I mean crazy. I was shocked, awed, disturbed, surprised and entertained all at the same time. When we were driving home, I couldn’t help but think about everything I saw while in the most magical place on earth. – That…

Why Being Pregnant Sucks

0

It’s no secret on how I feel about being pregnant. I will tell anyone and everyone who asks that it just plain out sucks. The outcome is the absolute best thing in the world but the 9 1/2 months leading up to that moment is just….rough. I know there are many out there that just don’t see it the way I do, some might agree but just don’t want to admit it because they feel like they will be looked at as a terrible person, and there are a few that whole-heartedly agree. I don’t think feeling this way makes…

Praise Thee Single Parent

I have been blessed to have family living extremely close to me. If I need any help with my lil kiddo, I have my parents 10 minutes South of us, my mother-in-law 10 minutes North, scattered relatives all over Broward/Dade area and a very involved and hands-on husband. If I ever need a hour to myself or we want to have a date night-they are there. Except this weekend. My husband was out of town on a guys trip, my mother-in-law is summering upstate New York, and my mother jetted off to help my very pregnant-with-twins sister. So I was…

Disposable Diaper + Washer = No Bueno

Disposable Diaper + Washer =  No Bueno

    AntiMom’s Tip#1 – Never Wash Disposable Diapers. EVER! If you end up in the same situation I was in the other night, where you are exhausted from going to the beach and spending the entire weekend in the hot sun and ready to collapse after you do just 1 load of laundry but then you realize as you empty the clothes from the washer to the dryer, that you have washed one of your child’s disposable diapers in with all the clothes. You want to cry, scream, punch a wall and/or slowly walk away and shut the door…
