Daddy was MAD!

Mothers' know when we take our kids to the park or a playdate that there is a chance that someone is gonna get hurt, cry, hurt someone or just ruin the trip. Of course, our kids are never bad and would not hurt another kid, Right! Well Corey doesn't take Kerhia places often with his schedule.
 Yesterday, we took Kerhia to the famous MOV hotdog in the mall. There was another kid there I'm guessing about 2 1/2 years old. He continued to follow Kerhia and just playing like a boy does. It was clear as day that there was a lack in parenting. You expect that when going somewhere, it's sadly becoming the normal child. There is going to be a kid that has parents that don't have the same parenting structure you do and you can not avoid it.
 Kerhia began to follow him cause he was showing her attention and she thought he wanted to play. Well the little boy turned around a full forced pushed Kerhia down. As a mother of course I run to Kerhia see if she is okay and then take her to the other side to go play. I leave it at that, the mother did come get the boy and put him in time out. I didn't have to approach her for the benefit of my sanity. My husband was furious! I am talking about steaming mad!!  What is it that makes mothers and fathers different in that situation??

I love reading and thought I could add this to my blog. I am going to post a little review on every book that I read and then that can give you some idea if you want to read the book as well. I know as a busy stay at home mom, my reading is my time!! I love to get caught up in a book and forget about all the laundry, cleaning or feeding that needs done for a little bit.

I just finished reading "Mommywood". I picked this book because I was a huge 90210 fan. I also enjoy reading books that are written by other mothers'. I love getting new advice and ideas that other moms do.
Well Mommywood isn't as good as I thought it would be. It had it's funny parts and was an easy quick read. Being a mother of a girl she talks about the problem of dirty diapers going up the vajayjay. She has a phrase that really tells it all "Poo up the Pus" kinda diaper! I about died laughing cause I know that I have had million of those moments! I really couldn't relate to a lot that she had to say about raising her kids.. Maybe, cause I am not a millionaire would be my guess. haha. She did though want to live the normal mom life and I really agreed with her on that. She wanted to live in a small neighborhood where everyone knew each other and kids played all summer long together. I know as Corey and I are getting closer to buying our final home that it is on my list of musts! Her personality did seem to remind me of myself some. In the book she talks into details about how she is scared of everything and anything pretty much. Not a lot of people know that but that is totally me! I can come up with a scary situation for everything. If Kerhia is doing something that looks harmful and is having fun, I could list you all the ways she could get hurt by doing it more than looking at the fun part. She is such the party planner as well and that is something I love to do! I would host something at my house every week if I could come up with things to do. She has the goal of making birthdays a big event for her children and that is something I always wanted to do as well. She had live monkeys at her son's first birthday bash.. Sorry, kids I don't think there will ever be any monkeys on our guest list!
That is my review on the book "Mommywood" hope my blog was any help to you about reading the book or not.

Can I be a SuperMom, please?

Yes, I need some classes! I am wondering how you all do it!! Being a mom is so rewarding and I love every second of it. As we get closer to the toddler stages I have realized that it only gets crazier but what I have realized about those crazy moments.. they will never be forgotten!!

I have to tell you all about my adventure last night! All day I was excited to get out of the house to go to family night that was held at our local mall. It was going to be a great night. Daddy had to work and it was going to be a girls night out! Plus it gave me an excuse to go to the mall, hehe. I was all set and ready for a fun night. We got there a little early so I went in and changed Kerhia so I wouldn't have to worry about a dirty diaper while we were having fun. We decided to stroll around and do some shopping. Daddy wasn't there to say "NO".. Well Kerhia got a very serious look. So I knew right away I should check her diaper. Guess what, there was no poop in the diaper..but all outside the diaper!! How did this manage to happen??! I didn't have a change of clothes with me and it wasn't like it was a mess to clean up then throw her in the car and go home! It had to be taken care of! So, let me remind you I am almost 8 months pregnant! RUNNING with a child covered in poop into JcPenny's trying to get to the kid's section to buy an outfit. I had no choice!! So I get into JcPenny's and realize that all their summer/spring wear is out! They had one little clearance rack with some winter clothes.. of course none of them were her size! I had no choice but to buy a shorts outfit with a cute little shirt. I bought the outfit and ran to the family bathroom and spent over half an hour in there trying to clean up. I got her nice and cleaned and in her new summer outfit. She looked to cute, except for the fact it is still the middle of February! I was now determined after all that work that I was going to take her out there to have some fun with the other kids. So now here I am with a 17 month old little girl in the middle of winter in a pair of blue shorts and plaid tank top! I looked like a horrible mother and I know every mother passing by me was thinking "That poor kid."

Well we finished the night having a good time! Kerhia got her face painted into a little kitty cat (her favorite animal). I will never forget about our night out to the mall together now.. All though it was one of the most stressful nights I have had.. I realized that is what motherhood is about. All though I will never be a supermom.. I will have memories that I will get to tell her about when she is a teenager and we are out shopping for a pair of shorts.
