Boys club. March 14, 2015

Filed under: Posts — meanttobeamama @ 9:49 pm

Welcome to the “living with more than one little boy” club. We smell, since we only get to shower at midnight and sometimes you choose sleep over being clean. Our cars and beds are filled with trains and play tools. And we live every single second with enough humor to make it past whatever they are currently wrecking. But, we will be the first to hug you or lend a hand without being prompted. We are a tight group, but will accept you with open arms and a laugh.


Not a mis-pin. February 27, 2015

I recently pinned this to my “bucket list” board. Someone suggested it was a simple mix up and told me in case i wanted to find it later. This was no mistake, friends. I so badly want to help create a world that would reach out and help MY babies if they were in need. Helping someone who cannot repay you (in monetary form or otherwise) is a gift you give from your soul TO the deepest depths of someone you may never know.

Paying it forward is my lifestyle. Want to help?


Simply Fair Skin Care :: exceptional skin care with a conscious. February 16, 2015

Simply Fair Skin Care                                                                                                                 

I would like to introduce a skin care line to you. As prestigious and effective as the most coveted designer brands, with a heart full of virtues. This is Simply Fair Skin Care.

Does your skin care openly share exactly where they source ingredients?

Does your skin care use ingredients that are the highest quality, they set the standards in the industry?

Does your skin care allocate any profits to the communities who produce their ingredients?

Simply Fair does all of these. And so much more. 

Over the next few posts I would like to present each product in the Simply Fair line. I want you to have a “Knowledge is power” additude.

Once you have this knowledge, there is no turning back.


Moo-dela January 29, 2015

There is a Disney TV show my boys like to watch, Sheriff Callie. In this town where they reside, there is a cow who runs the local saloon (of sorts). Only, at this saloon, she only serves milk. This part has me puzzled. Is this milk we are left to assume is hers? Is it brought in on cartoon conestoga wagons? We never find out. Are you now wondering the same thing i am? My imagination is creating some pretty funny “back room” scenes….perhaps a Medela (moo-dela?!) pump…. So basically what we have here is a (GASP!) breastmilk cafe…? Any thoughts?


Brazil <3 's breastfeeding mothers January 14, 2015

One of my “second mom”s recently went on a two week trip to Brazil. She told me that nursing mothers are treated with as much respect as the elderly. (A lot!) They get to ride the bus for free. They even get the front row seats. She didnt see even one mother bottle feeding in two whole weeks. There is ZERO effort or push to cover up or censor breastfeeding. I revel in that. The USA is completely out of touch with what is a battle and what isn’t.


Baby Febreeze. January 7, 2015

Its a secret that experienced mothers have figured out. Our heart rate is like baby febreeze. A calm and even heart rate and breaths can calm even an insane child. A frustrated and jumpy heart rate and quick breaths can wake a child. Seriously. Ive had it happen multiple times.


2014 in review December 30, 2014

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,600 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 27 trips to carry that many people.
