My Unethical Parenting Tactics That Kept Me Sane as a Mom

Some things I see and hear a lot are mom's going crazy about the latest baby trends, what their babies should be doing at certain ages, what they're supposed to be doing for their kids at surtain ages and just trying to do everything "perfectly".

When I became a mom I was't like that.. I thought maybe it was because I was young? But I now realize that's really not the case.

Kinda weird.. Definitely annoying

I’ve been having an uncontrollable urge to write all day today. Actually, all day I’ve been feeling that I need to do something more and like something was missing and I wasn’t sure what that something was. But somehow, at 10:30 pm, I figured it out and it was to write. I don’t know why? But that’s what something has been telling me to do so here I am at 10:30 at night, typing on my laptop in my full sized bed, with my sleeping 3 year old to my right and boyfriend playing a what seems to be a very intense 2k basketball game on the Xbox (scratch that. The game must have been “cheating” because he just randomly got off..) to my left. Having no idea wtf I’m going to write about. Update: Erik the boyfriend is now sleeping.

I have been thinking a lot lately about what I want to do. You know, for money. I say it that way because I hate jobs and refuse to call the next thing I do to make money a job because I want to LOVE it and I want it to be in a unconventional way. For example, right now I’m walking dogs for a living. As much as I realize how unconventional of a “job” that is and as much as I enjoy playing with dogs all day, I know it’s not what I actually want to be doing. Lately I’ve been thinking about creating and setting up a Etsy shop. I just don’t know what I want to create yet!!! Not knowing but constantly thinking is making me feel very unproductive and starting to drive me a little crazy because I’m craving a change NOW and that just cant happen yet. After writing this though, at this second, I’m starting to realize my urge to write today is my way of making me feel productive and as if I’m actually doing something to better myself and life instead of just thinking of different ways to do so. I’ll take it… For now.

After discovering this, I feel a sort of relief and am very excited for sleep now! Thanks brain, fingers and laptop for being there for me tonight! Couldn’t have done it without cha. Goodnight!!! Update: Erik the boyfriend is moving way too much. Kinda weird how much hes moving.. Definitely annoying.


Ya girl,

Ugh I’m so lazy

Why am I doing this? By “This” I mean… Why am I writing this blog?

Well at first it was because I wanted to start a business and my mother advised me to start an online business and she said that it starts with blogging.

I didn’t keep it up and she get’s mad at me because I don’t write one a week like she told me to.

I think to myself, who the heck gives a crap about what I have to say… But she keeps telling me “Doing nothing gets you nowhere.” But that is defiantly not motivation enough for me to keep writing.

I feel like I have to know what I’m going to do.

I can paint and draw, but I don’t want that to be my “job” other than that, I’m not sure what the hell I can do!

I did learn how to edit videos using a software that was sort of like animation, but that didn’t really go anywhere…

I was thinking of putting my video editing services up on FIVERR.Com or some other site like that, but without being able to even say why… That never happened.

I can’t be the only person who wants to work for themselves, find something they love to do and be paid for it.

And I can’t be the only one who tried and stopped trying.

My mom says that in the beginning you have to throw some spaghetti at the wall and see what sticks. But I feel like the spaghetti I have to throw is uncooked and so I don’t even bother throwing it.

Uncooked spaghetti will not stick and so I am at a place of “WHY BOTHER.”

BUT my freaking mom is relentless because I SAID that I wanted her help and I haven’t told her to stop and so she won’t stop until I do tell her to.

So, I’m going to do what she advises.

I’m going to keep blogging and if the only thing it is for now is my journey, trying to make it in the world, then that is what it will be.

I will post things about simple daily life, wanting to stop working for the summer, wanting to look for a car to buy when I don’t really have the money to buy a car, wanting to get an apartment when I am always late with a pittance of a rent I have to pay my brother…

And I hope that someone will care! My mom says someone will, and since I have nothing to loose, I’ll keep doing it!

Let Them Eat Pancakes!

If you’re a young mom and making minimum wage, I highly recommend buying pancake mix your next trip to the grocery store.

That shit will have you set for like 5 days.

I didn’t do what me and my mom did a few weeks (the menu plan thing) and and I just got stuff when I needed it, so we ran out of food for the week and me and my boyfriend weren’t expecting our next paychecks until 3 days later and I’m telling you everyday we had the most filling pancake meals for 3 days straight.

And it was awesome.

So, just some simple advice for you min. Wage workers who are fending for themselves… I’m telling you pancake mix will take you a long way!

Till Next time,

Side note: I don’t use garbage syrup. I use pure maple syrup and buckwheat Pancake mix, if you are going to be bad, you might as well be as good as you could be, I always say 🙂
