Don’t Hate The Paranoid Mom

Don’t Hate The Paranoid Mom

They say when you become a parent for the first time, you are extra cautious. You have top-of-the-line everything from your diapers to the stroller. The hottest baby gadgets to hit the market fill your home. Every baby book is read from cover to cover. Every sharp corner is cushioned and stairway gated. Come your second, things get a bit more lax. Whoops – the pacifier fell on the floor, but there is no need to worry, for the 5 second rule is always in effect. Somehow, our family did things backwards. Our first daughter was born and people would comment on how relaxed…

Mom’s Survive Summer Giveaway!

Mom’s Survive Summer Giveaway!

We are one month closer to Summer! (A collective groan is heard around the world from mom’s) There was nothing better than summer when I was a kid, and frankly, as an adult, it still is kicks butt. I have to admit, I am a little nervous though about this summer. See, it is my first summer after having my oldest in preschool 3 days a week. I have been racking my brain on how to keep her busy. We do take a couple trips up north to see family over the summer (when all the snow is melted!), but what about…

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…

The Ultimate Mom’s Night Out

0

  Thanks to Mom, Baby & Beyond, South Florida Mom’s got to head to The Ultimate Mom’s Night Out for a fun night out away from the poopy diapers, homework, dirty dishes and piles of laundry to mingle with some brand name vendors, local businesses and sip on some wine with other moms. As I walked up to the Marriott in Heron Bay, I was greeted by some bumpin’ tunes blaring from family-friendly cars lined up from Coral Springs Auto Mall and fabulous shopping from The Trendy Truck (check them out on FB & Twitter, too!) So before you even walked in to the event, you could tell it was going…

Frozen Snow Globe Craft For Kids

Frozen Snow Globe Craft For Kids

  If you have a young child, chances are they are slightly obsessed with Disney’s Frozen. My daughter has shirts, socks, books, hair bows, pajamas – you name it, we have it. The movie plays on a loop on any given day. My 3 year old will bust out with ‘Let it Go’ in the middle of Publix. Yeah, slightly obsessed. So on days when we are stuck in the house due to Baby O’s nap schedule, I like to have arts and crafts handy to keep her occupied. I had a bunch of glitter and bought some snowflake confetti…

The Bouqs Company Makes Ordering & Sending Flowers Easier!

  Do you love sending flowers for special occasions, but hate the hidden fees that majority of the online florists tag on when you are checking out? I know I do! Last time I tried sending my sister flowers, I was only looking to spend max $40. So I chose a cute arrangement that was $29.99. You can imagine how pissed I was when I went to check out and all the hidden fees ended up being almost $60. DOUBLE the price! Thanks to The Bouqs Company, you never have to deal with this kind of problem again! The Bouqs…

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…

Ocean Potion Takes on #FLBestBeach!

      It’s SUMMER TIME, ya’ll! OK, well it might not technically be summer yet but down here in Florida, it sure as heck feels like it! That means pool, beach and park days galore. No matter where we live or how close to the equator we might be, the sun is one powerful beast and everyone needs to protect their skin from the UV rays. Yes, even the most sun worshiping, baby oil-lathering person needs to stop and protect, cause our skin is the largest organ in our body and we all need to keep it in the best…
