Give the kid a bath? Fix her hair? Feed them? What am I going for, parent of the year? Okay most of us make sure our kids’ essential needs are met. And some of us go above and beyond to find creative ways to entertain and teach our children. And then there are times when the energy and enthusiasm to go that extra parenting mile just isn’t there. Sometimes minimal effort is the best we can give. But hey, sometimes minimal effort takes a little ingenious innovation. Of course other times it’s just a matter of leaving the T.V. on and tossing the kiddos a package of cookies while we take a nap. Who are we to judge, every parent needs a few moments of peace.

I'm a married, stay at home mother of 4, with a lot of crazy going on. Being a parent is so rewarding, but very exhausting! Ha! My husband is a musician/entrepreneur with a lot going on, so I manage most of the day to day and happen to find a lot of humor in all the chaos. If the choice is laugh or cry, I'll choose laugh every time. :)
