How Many Days of Torture Would You Make Your Baby Endure?

by RealMomofNJ on May 09, 2013 in Parent Stuff, Safety Info

So RealBoy has his third ISR lesson last night. It was only slightly better than his second lesson, which was actually worse than his first. The problem is undoubtedly that the instructor is a stranger; he LOVES the water otherwise. He now starts to cry as soon as he sees the pool, and he doesn’t really let up…

Books That Make Moms Look Good

by RealMomofNJ on May 08, 2013 in Children's Books, Holidays

Anyone noticed how mothers in children’s books (and movies) don’t always come off well? They’re evil queens, witches, or horrible stepmothers, or they’re inflexible, strict, and sometimes, downright unsmiling crabs. WTF is up with that? Dads are fun, but moms are…moms.

For Mother’s Day I would like some peace and quiet, I also want my kids to love me (from…

Remember when I mentioned we signed RealBoy up for baby swimming classes with Infant Swimming Resource? He had had his first ISR lesson yesterday! Here is how it went:

What’s Your Greatest Accomplishment As A Parent?

by RealMomofNJ on May 06, 2013 in Life Lessons, Parent Stuff

I think that moms and dads spend too much time worrying about what they’re not accomplishing as parents and not enough time high-fiving themselves for what they have accomplished. So, right now, as of this moment, what do you consider your greatest accomplishment as a parent? Really, take a second to consider this and give yourself some credit for…

RealMomofNJ’s Top 5 (OK, 6) Mother’s Day Gifts

by RealMomofNJ on May 02, 2013 in Holidays, Mom Stuff

All of a sudden, everything on Pinterest is about Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day gifts, crafts, ideas, brags, etc. So, uh, yeah. Mother’s Day is coming.

RealDad is a last-minute shopper, so I try to throw him ideas for presents or nice gestures whenever possible to avoid the frenzied holiday rush. He may not mind hastily selecting a gift for me or paying…

Kid-Approved Adult Music

by RealMomofNJ on May 01, 2013 in Random Info

Last year at about this time, RealGirl was on a Hakuna Matata kick. We listened to that effing song every time we got in the car, and generally repeated it until we reached our destination. You would think that I would’ve been a lot more worry-free for someone listening to Hakuna Matata 39 times a day, but it was…

Normal Then, Luxury Now

by RealMomofNJ on April 30, 2013 in Bitching

Yesterday morning I was up ass early because the fucking cat was meowing outside my door for no reason at 530am. So, I decided to make good use of the time and actually take a shower before work. Because the kids wouldn’t be up until at least 7am, I was able to enjoy my shower instead of rush though…
