Mini Kitchen from re-purposed entertainment center

Fabulous Mini Kitchen: Part I

I am going to make this:

I found a mini-kitchen someone else did, and colored it in Photoshop to match my vision.
And I will post pictures as I go! I'm going to start it very soon (within the next month) so it's done by the time baby gets here.

The Five Stages of Mommy Hygiene

It's no secret that parents run short on time when kids are involved. Well, I was taking a shower this evening (after three days without one), and I came up with a list I think other moms (or dads) could relate to.

Chubby kids

DISCLAIMER: **These are my opinions - with exception to the statistics, those are factual - I'm not professing to know everything or be doing anything perfectly. I just noticed something that bothered me and this is my sounding board.**

Yes this is a stock photo, but the fact is that this child exists,
and is an accurate representation of one-third of American kids.
 The apartments I live in is riddled with them. The mall is oozing with them. The grocery store has them waddling around like a troupe of penguins... We as a society seem to have a serious epidemic. Our kids are fat. In fact, 1/3rd of this country's kids are obese. Think of two of your friends' kids. One of your kids is fat. What does that mean for you?

You know you're a parent when. . .

Look at the love there. You can practically touch it.

There are sooooo many perks to being a parent. The love and connection you feel when you hug or kiss your child is the most pleasant, warmey, gooey feeling in the world. The pride you feel when your child accomplishes something you taught them is irreplaceable. And the honorable sense of duty you feel when you realize this moldable mind is in your care, makes other jobs feel negligible.

But there are definitely some moments where you look at your life and go, "Oh lord... This is ridiculous."
