Weekly Planning for the Weary Mom

Once upon a time, I was able to keep up with my entire schedule for months in advance in my head.  I could remember birthdays, anniversaries, deadlines, and vacation schedules without having to write any of it down.  Ever since having kids, though, the ever-intrusive “pregnancy brain” took up residence and never moved out.  I […]

Breast Feeding Albuquerquemomsblog

When Breastfeeding Sucks; No Pun Intended

I sighed as I breastfeed my first born at 4am, while staring at my husband who was sound asleep next to me. Breastfeeding Sucks!! I yelled as I blind punched him in the face. I don’t know if it was the exhaustion, the fact that I was responsible for all the feedings, or the pure unfairness of […]

Gardening: Resources for the ABQ Gardener

I am not known in my family for having a green thumb.  My mom gave me a house plant in college that theoretically I shouldn’t have been able to kill.  It was dead by the second semester of my freshman year.  As a result, I approach gardening with a massive dose of trepidation.  After all, […]

Kid Crack – Too Much Screen Time

Two Christmases ago, “Santa” brought my son an Android Tablet, and with it came the great screen time debate. Although I allowed it, I’ve really grown to hate that Tablet. It’s like crack for kids, or what I now refer to as Kid Crack. I used to allow 30 minutes of Kid Crack per day, […]

Poison Control Hotline Albuquerque Moms Bldog

Poison Control Hotline

It happened.  We just got back from travelling and I was partly unpacked.  I was simultaneously fixing my hair, putting makeup on, and entertaining my 19 month old.  She sat on the counter and happily took everything out of the toiletries bag and then put it back in.  Out again, in again.  I knew the counter […]

Water Park: 411 on ABQ’s Hotel Cascada

Hotel Cascada boasts New Mexico’s one and only indoor water park. Until I had the opportunity to experience it with my family, it had always been surrounded by mystery amongst my mommy peers and I.

Mom-Dating: Is She Gonna Text Me?

Mom-Dating.  It’s kinda scary and makes me feel all inadequate and pathetic. If I’m not momming, usually I’m nose-deep in a book, or in a trance in front of a Netflix show.  It’s most often a show from the 90’s that either I was obsessed with in the 90’s, or missed the bus for and […]

Moms Just Do

“How do you do it?”  I’m sure we’ve all heard this question from time to time. Well, moms just do! Usually when asked, “how do you do it,” I give a smile and a friendly laugh and then walk away and continue on with my business.  I had never even thought of giving an actual answer, […]
