You Know The One. We've All Seen Her.

You know the one. We've all seen her. And if we are truthful, at some point, we've all been her (probably numerous times). You know what I'm talking about. The overly tired sleep deprived Mom with a million things on her to-do list pushing her very active, determined not to sit still or cooperate with today's activities, very inquisitive toddler. You can usually hear them before you see them. 

And today, that Mom was me. Lil Man woke up at 4:30am today. And thankfully I did have 'pre-school' time today which was a nice break. I met a friend for a 4 mile run. Then I went to the local coffee house and worked for an hour and half. But because I made a bet with my husband (What Did I Just Do?), my Milky Way Latte was replaced with a plain green tea. And somehow that just wasn't as relaxing as my Milky Way Latte had been ;) 

I picked up Lil Man from pre-school and went to the grocery store. I could tell that he had fun at school. But I could also tell that if I said up, he wanted down. Sigh. 

He was naming off colors in the produce section (so far so good I'm thinking). But then he started to lose interest. And this is where the grocery shopping started falling apart. I made the mistake of allowing him to hold the container of peaches (You know the ones with the 4 individual plastic cups). At first this didn't seem so bad.. and then after a few aisles over... (insert climatic music) ... they hit the floor. Sigh.

I picked them up individually as the cardboard container tore that was holding them. Lil Man wanted them back. Umm.. no. So let's just say you could really hear us coming down the aisles now. 

I didn't realize the containers were leaking until I put them on the belt at the register. Double sigh. I didn't check because truthfully I didn't want to know, but there is a high probability that I left a trail of peach juice throughout the store. 

Add in the fact that I'm going through sugar withdrawal, standing near the candy at the checkout with our peach juice soaked items was not the highlight of my day. 

I managed a smile as the cashier gingerly placed the peach containers into a separate bag for me. 

I think she sighed a breath of relief as we left the store....

  1. Aw, don't worry about what anybody thinks. Anybody worth their salt understands that sometimes it's just one of those days. Just go with the flow.

    1. Yep, I try.. some days it's easier than others :)

  2. You're a saint! I've been seen leaving places hauling our eldest like a sack of potatoes while he screams like a banshee.

    Maybe you saw someone in the store like this non-parent, single guy:

    1. Yep, I've been there too and had to drag him out of a kid's fair.

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss

Little Buffalo State Park

I don't know about where you live, but where we live we are within driving distance to several State Parks. And because the weather has been so cool this Summer, and although it's August, last week was the first time we'd been to the pool. Lil Man had a blast. We had hoped some friends could join us today, but no one was available. But we ventured out, just the two of us, and we had a blast. The water was still pretty cold. In fact, we would get in - play for awhile - then get out and sit on a beach towel in the sun to warm up. This seemed to work well. We splurged and Lil Man enjoyed his first chocolate chipwich. He exclaimed "It's a cookie AND ice cream!" I do believe he thought it was a genius idea. Although it can be exhausting as my Lil Man is one that wants me to definitely join in with him with the sprinklers etc, it was pure joy to watch him enjoy himself. I think this picture speaks for itself. I hope you are enjoying your last few days

Ecosak Nylon Nut Bag Review

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature. Well, can you believe that I am trying out a nut bag to make my own almond milk? (I'll pause a moment so that you can let the shock wear off!) I can honestly say that never in my life did I intend on making my own almond milk. But as you know, we are making some changes to our diet. So I decided I would give it a try.  And with the Ecosak I also received some recipes which really helped since I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to do. I asked Lil Man if he wanted to help me, and he was more than thrilled. Apparently making almond milk was an exciting and fun thing for him. First things first was to wash the Ecosak (easy to do) and soak the nuts. Yep, I put some raw almonds in a bowl, covered them with water and let them soak 6-8 hours or so. After they had been soaked, I
