Mama War Stories – I’m totally winging it.

Truth time. I don’t know what I’m doing as a mom a lot of the time.

There I said it. Out loud.

Mama War Stories - I'm totally winging it. | Ellie And AddieWith two little boys ages 1 and 3, things are a slight bit crazy around here the majority of the time. But I seriously wouldn’t have it any. other. way. I love it.

I’ve got some war stories. Like yes, let’s get out every single truck we have and line them through the kitchen for a parade. I didn’t need to walk there.

Or no, I didn’t want anyone else to look at the camera for this picture, it’s cool!

Or yeah go ahead, the dog toy is totally fine to chew on.

Or let’s talk about my favorite war story ever, which has no pictures because O.M.G. I had both boys inside the play place at CFA after breakfast and story time. And then Jude went to the top (which he generally won’t do) and then proceeded to scream at the top of his lungs and not come down after I called for him for what seemed like 30 minutes. I mean it was probably only 2 minutes but I was sweating with panic. So I passed off Ezra to another mom (luckily I knew her) AND I HAD TO CLIMB ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP OF THE PLAY PLACE. In front of like 8 other moms I didn’t know. Jude was genuinely shocked to see me up there and came right down with me and we promptly loaded into the car and went home. Yes, I laugh about this whole experience now, but at the time it wasn’t so funny. :)

So sometimes you just need to make a frozen pizza for dinner. Because everyone loves pizza. And if you don’t love pizza we are no longer friends.

And then you serve it on paper plates on the patio because you don’t want to clean anything and hosing down the patio is easier.

I call it a win because the toddler will eat anything on his plate as long as he’s outside! Just watch the dog…. #badaddie

So grab a paper plate and a wine glass and enjoy that pizza mama. You deserve it.

    With 4 kids, I have TONS of war stories, as you can imagine! One of my favorites is from when my now-middle schooler was in kindergarten and I was teaching the other kindergarten classroom. Apparently the safety patrol had reported Kate to the principal for kissing our little neighbor boy on the bus…lol! The principal only had a first name and a classroom teacher name and didn’t connect Kate to me…until she talked to Kate’s teacher and I got called to the principal’s office!!! She officially earned the nickname of “Kissin’ Kate” for the rest of kindergarten!!!!

    The biggest war story is the daily routine of getting off of a long days work, only to have to work in the kitchen. I tweeted at httpss://twitter.com/1froglegs/status/867148173445345280

  • Yes!!! I love keeping frozen pizza on hand for when I decide to wave my white flag — happens a couple times a week! ha. These days are crazy, right? But I know I’ll miss them someday, so…
