Life and Times of a Mommy(:

Can we do it?! Yes we can!

GUYS!!!!!!!! Look. At. The. CUTENESS!!! A worm comes down from the top when you scroll and then when you roll over him he says “Get me outta here!” And if you click on him it takes you back to the top!! Try it!! Go ahead! I’ll wait!!!


Did you do it?! It’s amazing right?! And the fishies move!! And there are whales and turtles and dolphins!! AND!! When you get to the very bottom of the page and drag your mouse across the bottom the sea weed MOVES!!! How awesome!!

Ok… That’s enough of my excitement. You guys tell me what you think!! I love getting your opinions! 😀


Okay. So we have two days left in the 30 Days of Truth. They will be split into two different posts. At least one will be today (because we are about to do it…not that it!! Geez get your mind out of the gutter….) but I’m not sure about the other. I feel like poop on a stick that has been run over, backed up over, and run over again by a MAC truck. It started yesterday…I woke up in the middle of the night nauseous and it continued through the day. It als seemed like I had motion sickness. Every time I moved my head felt weird and I got dizzy. And when I dropped cold coke on my hand it felt like a shard of ice sliced all the way through my hand. It was craziness. I’m a little better today but I’m still nauseous. No dizziness or anything. (No. I am NOT pregnant….)

So. We will at least do one today.

Sadly it was not Mac the MAC truck, but that would have been cool. He would have been really nice about it!!

Day Twenty Nine. Something you hope to change about yourself and why.  Man, this thing is pretty repetitive isn’t it…. Pretty sure we did one similar to this… But we will do it again. I’m going to try not to be Mrs. Repeat and say my size again soooooo….. I would chaaaaaange…. Hmm. I really don’t know. I really want to change my education level, I guess. I want to go back to college and put a lot more effort into going. So I guess I hope to change my mentality. Because if I have a can do mentality instead of a can’t do mentality then anything is possible. Wow… That sounded so cheesy….


This One’s for the Girls

When I was 11 a song called “This One’s for the Girls” by Martina McBride came out. (Yes, I know what you are all thinking, “Ewww country!!” But bear with me for a minute.) The song simply talks to us girls. That’s it. And yeah I know, there are like five bazillion female empowerment songs, but this one. This one is my JAM!!! Simply because it’s country. Well… That and that I can really relate to it. (And besides Taylor Swift wasn’t even a thought on the country music scene then.)


The first group of girls she talks to is the super emotional teenagers.

“This is for all the girls about thirteen,

 High school can be so rough, can be so mean.

Hold on your innocence,

Stand your ground when everybody’s givin’ in”


Now, this verse didn’t really his me until I was like 16 or 17. I had stopped listening to country for a while when my parents divorced and my mother moved me from my home town. When I moved back in with my dad it was either listen to country without your headphones in or listen to it with them in over whatever it is your listening to. So. Didn’t really have a choice and by the time I got my own, car I was back in the habit of listening to country. When I heard this song again, it really hit home. I mean, I compared it to my sophomore, freshman, and eighth grade year. But I could also compare it to my junior and senior year looking back.


The next verse speaks to those girls just out of college.

“This ones for the girls about 25,

In little apartments just trying to get by,

Livin’ on dreams and spaghetti o’s,

Wondering where your life is gonna go.”


I’m not yet 25 but this verse, as does the first, really resonates with me. I was 18 to 19 living in first a one, then a two bedroom apartment, with a baby, living on frozen dinners, and some crap cooking. (Thanks to my ex roommate who thought she could cook. But I have to say, it was better than spaghetti o’s. Blec!) Then, at least part of the time, I know where my life was going. Now I’m almost 21, married with two kids, renting a small, but cute house, and wondering where my life is going. Am I going to finish my dream? Am I going to find another? Am I going to be like the one thing I dread: My mother?

Only time will tell.


In the song, the chorus comes next. But we will get to that in a minute.


The next verse is for an age group I don’t yet know anything about. I don’t know what they are going through but these four lines help explain it.

“This is for all you girls about forty two,

Tossin’ pennies into the fountain of youth,

Every laugh line on your face

Made you who you are today.”

I don’t really know what to say about this other than to give myself some future advice: Embrace your wrinkles, you are still beautiful. So all you gorgeous ladies in this age group, feel free to give your view on this verse. What you feel and think, and if it speaks to you.


Ok. Here’s the chorus.

“This one’s for the girls

Who’ve ever had a broken heart,

Who’ve wished upon a shooting star,

You’re beautiful the way you are. 

This one’s for the girls,

Who love with out holding back,

Who dream with everything they have,

All around the world,

This ones for the girls.”

I don’t think I can elaborate anymore than that. This song is for every girl, everywhere.


So. Find this song, listen to it, and have a little inspiration for the day. If you don’t, well, whatever. Read through the lyrics and have a little inspiration anyway!
