Momisms: Real Moms MOM So Hard

Dare To Share!

“Mom” life is not glamorous; it’s not Mrs. Cleaver, 50’s perfect….In reality it’s full of “momisms”- those little nuances of motherhood that get moms through the day and prove that they are ‘REAL’ people and not like Caioo’s mom…who all REAL moms want to destroy…

#1 How real moms do dessert…

*Buy chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream because it is F-ing delicious.

*Sift through the  ice cream after putting your children to sleep and eat all the amazing balls of cookie dough.

*Laugh about the fact that you are “eating delicious balls.”

*Be sure to bask in your well deserved, happy moment after a full day of “momming.”

*On the  next dessert night, surprise your little munchkins with a special treat; Chocolate Chip Ice Cream!

#2 Real moms make lists better than nasa!

Gotta go to the grocery store, run errands, or have a bunch of chores to complete? Any mom out there can make you a “To Do” list that will rock your socks off. Said list will be organized into sections, it will contain boxes for completion check-marks, and may even include a sticker for when you’ve finished.

After a good 30 minutes creating the perfect list, Real Moms will head to the store leaving the list on their desk. Or they will begin their chores and lose their list in the washer while starting laundry…

Sometimes I burn my list in a fit of compete and utter anxiety over the amount of crap it contains…or forget that I made one on my phones ‘note’ feature.

No matter how the list is lost or destroyed, moms are left to fly by the seat of their pants and seem to always forget the ONE thing they actually needed at the store.

#3 HOw real moms do spaghetti night- hint: we run behind!

In order to catch up and be sure everyone gets to bed on time, moms bathe the baby early and feel accomplished when their shiny little one is all set for bed, smelling of love and lavender, before dinner has been put on the table. YES! I’M AHEAD FOR ONCE!

Then they see the pot of red sauce that will stain the perfect, light colored jammies they have just squished their little one into. They notice squigly noodles that will soon be squashed into all that lovely baby hair they just so lovingly cleaned.Momisms

F*ck! New plan, strip the kid down and eat naked so that the inevitable mess can be cleaned up by throwing the baby into the bath AGAIN and bedtime can be later than usual.

Have cookie dough ice cream for dessert after everyone stops crying and falls asleep.

#4 REAL moms wash, dry, fold, and put away at least one load of laundry every day and NEVER fall behind…

BWAHAHAHA! What a load of crap!

Momisms

In reality, real moms fall so behind on laundry a few times a year that they would rather buy new packs of socks and underwear for their little ones than face the lost sock monster residing in the mountain of clothes that have taken over the couch. In fact, this summer, I instructed my kids to wear sandals everyday rather than spend 3 hours matching socks for 5 kids and 2 adults…Proud mommy moment!

#4 Us real moms revel in the clickety-clack of teensy tinsy LEGGO’s zipping up the hose attachment of the vacuum.

All moms know the pain of stepping on these bricks of horror as well as the back breaking labor of trying to get them all cleaned up. They hide in the crease between the wall and the floor, under the couch, get squashed in cushions; they never reside at eye level where a mom’s back can catch a break!

Thus the vacuum attachment is our friend.  Moms everywhere laugh maniacally as they suck up those little plastic devils into their dark resting place, never to be stepped on again. We don’t even care that we are essentially sucking up $5 per brick or slightly creepy LEGGO head. Screw those little bastards!

Momisms

P.S.  Buy stock in the LEGGO company STAT.  We know at Christmas we’ll be replacing that 300 piece, 5 hour assembly required, LEGGO jet-powered-Batman-helicarrier (emphasis on the HELL) that we have managed to suck up over the last few months…

#5 Moms start off the school year like a boss!

You stock the fridge with healthy, single portion snacks that you have personally packed into BPA free containers. You write personalized little notes on each container to inspire your little ones to learn and be social butterflies. You have all their school things organized into special folders and keep your calendar, which you check every day, up to date, color coordinated and decorated with cute little stickers next to your perfect, calligraphy-like handwriting.

2 weeks later, the reality of motherhood kicks in. We are exhausted and cranky and have had it with homework already, much like our children. We buy bulk single serving chips, pudding packs, and non-organic applesauce. We print off notes from pinterest and pass them off as our own and, eventually, completely forget about them.

Our kids are fed and loved…but we’re not f*cking Martha Stuart on steroids and we certainly don’t get paid to try!

#6 Briber 101

Don’t get in a tizzy just yet, internet trolls, let me explain. Who am I kidding, go ahead a freak out, we aren’t F-ing perfect!

When moms are finally at the end of their rope regarding their children completing, or, f*ck, even STARTING their chores, they resort to KGB level measures. Knowing your children won’t do as they have been asked, let them know that if they finish in a timely manner with everything done to MOM’S standards, they will receive a treat. This will momentarily motivate them, but still nothing will get done to a satisfactory level.

On the off chance that your kids are rock stars and they DO complete their chores perfectly, then you take everyone to ice cream and sing halleluja!

All other, normal, moms, begin to “tsk tsk” and present a look of supreme sadness as they let their children know that they had been planning to go to the nearest amusement park as a reward for their hard work…but now they can’t, sniff sniff, all because the beds aren’t made and there are LEGGO’s everywhere. Boo-hoo…Muahahahaha!

#7 Throw Away Queens

Real moms will reach a point where they can’t stand the amount of crap that clutters their house. They will get in a tizzy and decide the clean out drawers and toy chests that overfilled and crammed with broken toys, clothes that are too small, and items that haven’t seen the light of day in a year.

These items will be stored in a trash bag for a month, just to be certain that no little children miss them and then they head to a donation center or the junk yard.

Everyone will  then immediately wonder where their FAVORITE shirt (that doesn’t fit them and hasn’t been worn in a year) has gone. They will cry about the dragon that they can’t find. The one that is missing a leg and was thrown in a tantrum because it doesn’t work and they don’t want it. They will ask where the dollar store, crap-tacular toys from a birthday party goody bag received last year have gone…..

F*ck it’s hard being a mom!

#8 Real Moms plan fun family outings that manage to F*ck with everyone else’s plans

All moms want to create memories with their kids. They want great photos at fun restaurants and to capture silly moments as their family trips over pumpkins around Halloween. Therefore we plan awesome family outings with money we don’t really have that we expect everyone will be as excited about as we are.

Us moms usually have high expectations about such outings that someone will ruin.

Inevitably our grand plans coincide with a favorite friends’ birthday extravaganza, a costume party at school, or favorite freaking TV shows airtime.

God forbid children be happy to be going somewhere special with their family for a full few hours of fun and memories. Nope, they are so focused on what they are missing out on that moms end up with memories of being angry and frustrated that their plans never turn out quite right.

Oh, and don’t forget that someone will end up with diarrhea on the day of your plans, because there is nothing better for making memories than dealing with explosive poo…

#9 Real moms live by the motto “better late than never”

Thank you cards for your sons birthday in April? They may go out in October, but at least they happened!

Let’s face it, life is fricking busy and hard and we all need  an extra 5-6 hours in the day to get everything on our list done. For example, every year I painstakingly create amazing Christmas cards for our family. I stage great photos of my kids and take at least 100 pictures to finally get one where they are all smiling and not punching each other. I spend hours on the computer testing layouts and themes before finally ordering a million cards so I can properly show off my family at the most wonderful time of the year.

Then I forget to hand them out at Christmas parties and don’t realize it until after the holiday whirlwind has come to an end. FML. Now i get to be the jacka$$ that sends out Christmas cards after the new year has begun….better late than never I guess!

Real moms get sh*t done….just not always exactly when we hoped. Deal with it.

#10 Moms have the worlds best timing

Whenever a REAL mom sits down to eat a meal, especially one that includes finger foods, at least one child will suddenly have to poo. This isn’t such a big deal, except that, as the mom is taking her first bite, said child will inexplicably forget how to wipe their own bottom. Nothing like wiping up poo and then using those hands to put food in your face!

It seems that whatever moms do, our timing is always obnoxiously bad. Gotta poop? Moms will choose the moment when everyone seems occupied and happy only to pop a squat and suddenly have all hell break loose.  God forbid we poop in peace!

Baking something time sensitive? Let the injuries begin! Someone will wreck their knees and require medical attention that will take just long enough to burn whatever was on the stove.

Moms require a serious sense of humor, or mass amounts of wine, to deal with the Murphey’s law like effects of living with children!

how do you “mom so hard”?

Big Fit Fam is BACK!

Dare To Share!

Holy wow, the last month has been an absolute whirlwind of activity!

You may have noticed that BigFitFam.com has been down for the last 2 weeks. More on this later in this post, but for now, just know that we are back up and running and we are going to be better than ever!

Here is a quick recap of our month as I haven’t been able to create a post!

School days

We ended August with 4 kids in school! As if juggling four different teachers and four different grades of homework wasn’t enough, we received word the second week of school that our first grader had made the cut to get into a local charter. While I don’t have anything against the neighborhood elementary school that my kiddos attend, I am VERY concerned about the middle school (more on our decision to move to a charter in a later post!). Essentially, getting my firsty into the charter will save my fifth grader from the horror of the monster middle school. Therefore, I was left juggling 4 kids in 3 separate schools, each with a different calendar, different expectations and different start and end times….OY

welcoming baby #6!

Soon after our school conundrum we learned that our 6th baby would have to be born via C-Section. This was not a huge surprise as we had known about the previa that causes natural labor to be dangerous for mom and baby since my 20 appointment. If you would like to know more about Placenta Previa chcek out my post “Placenta Previa: The Emotional Truth.

Due to the fact that I was already having contractions and, with this being our 6th baby, the fact that labor could set in very quickly, our doctor decided that we would meet our newest addition at 37 weeks gestation.

Having a C-Section after 5 vaginal births was definitely a new experience, and one I hope to NEVER repeat. I will be writing more on the differences between a “natural” birth and Cesarean (other than the obvious!) in the next few weeks. Big Fit Fam #6

We welcomed our little Sonja on September 12th and she is simply wonderful! She is the second girl in our brood of 6, a big surprise to me as I fully expected a boy!

Big Fit Fam #6

Recovery from such major surgery has been difficult to say the least. Whether I am healed or not I have 6 children to tend to, not to mention never ending laundry, chauffeur services for school aged kiddos, errands and cooking for a family of 8.  I love every minute of my big family, but i could do without the pain!

Malware and switching hosting services

36 hours after I cam home, just 3 days after Sonja was born, I received a 3am call that my other “baby,” my blogging website, had been shut down and my account deactivated by bluehost. I came to find out that my site was infected with malware. What!? How the heck did that happen? Why would any hacker choose MY site? It’s not super popular, it doesn’t get a million hits a day, it barely gets a few thousand a month!

I was devastated. And in the midst of having a newborn and recovering from surgery, I simply couldn’t deal with trying to fix it for a few days. The decision to wait to get my site running again was made even easier when I was told by bluehost’s security company that I would have $150 dollars to fix my site and then sign up for a $50/month protection plan. Um, NO! if I was making bukko bucks perhaps, but I’m not….I basically spew out a bunch of posts each month and hope to eventually make a little extra Christmas money!

After a few days of research I decided I needed to switch hosting companies. I chose Lyrical Host, who made the switch easy and were so very helpful! More on why I needed to switch and how amazing Lyrical Host has been in a future article!

So, I finally have my site back up! I have a 2 week old, along with my 10, 8, 6, 4, and 2 year old, and while I continue to recover I feel better everyday.

I am so excited to continue my blogging journey amidst juggling my family! Stay turned for some amazing articles coming out soon!

Guest Post: Benefits of Building Muscle During Pregnancy by Jane Sandwood

Dare To Share!

Women who fall pregnant for the first time begin to realize, fairly early on in the pregnancy, the extent to which their physical capabilities are affected. Pregnancy is both an amazing and exhausting experience during which the body is put under all kinds of extra strains, making it difficult and sometimes unsafe for us to exercise as we used to. This is why it’s important to thoroughly investigate and take note of the exercises you should avoid when pregnant.

Having said that, there are lots of benefits to exercising during pregnancy, particularly when it comes to muscle building. The ideal muscle building plan for pregnant women is a program that combines diet, exercise and hydration. It should also aim to educate, by teaching mothers-to-be how to stay safe and what to be on the alert for should worrying physical complaints arise.

Having consulted your doctor and a fitness professional who is trained in muscle building for pregnant women, there’s no reason why regular exercise cannot remain a part of your life and these are the major benefits you should expect to experience from your new training program.

1. Mental strength

If you can stick to your muscle building routine, you show signs of mental strength. You build confidence in your body and begin to learn what it is capable of achieving, all of which prepares you for giving birth. During labor, your body will show you just how strong you are and how much you can achieve. If you’re already used to staying mentally strong during physical activity, you’ll be even better prepared for when you enter the delivery room.

2. Recovering from a c-section

If you have to deliver through a c-section, you’ll also be thankful of a strong and conditioned body as it will make the recovery period easier all round. It’s time to stop thinking of your pregnant self as a fragile urn and instead accept that your body was designed to carry, develop and take complete care of a baby from conception to birth.

3. Decreased pain and discomfort

Muscle building and strength training exercises that are too strenuous could cause lower back pain, but when properly controlled and monitored they can actually help to prevent back problems and sciatica during pregnancy. They keep the muscles strong enough to support the added weight you’re carrying around. Freestocks.org

Remember that strength training is not only confined to the weights room at the gym. Other activities, particularly yoga, also help to strengthen muscles and keep the body’s alignment as it should be. Again, the most important thing is to stay safe when exercising, which means consulting your doctor and seeking the professional advice of a personal trainer before embarking on a new regime.

4. An easier birth

If you’ve been following a muscle building plan during pregnancy, your physical stamina levels will be higher than those women who haven’t. Giving birth is extremely tiring. Even getting up and walking around during the later stages of labor can be very strenuous, which is one of the reasons why strengthening the legs and lower body during pregnancy is a really good idea.

Walking regularly while pregnant, and combining these walks with single limb exercises, will make the intensive activity during birth easier to handle.

So, lose the fear. If properly controlled, you’ve nothing to lose and everything to gain from muscle building activity while pregnant and it’s never too late to start.

Explore More With Your Toddler With The Freeloader Child Carrier

Dare To Share!

Living on the Colorado Front Range, our family has access to countless hiking trails and camping adventures to make wonderful memories for our 5 children. I must admit, though, that we often avoid activities, such as hiking, that require my younger children to walk for long periods. Even activities on flatter ground that don’t allow easy access for a stroller or wagon, are difficult when you have young kiddos who tire easily. As much as I love carrying my babies on my hip, it is exhausting and uncomfortable when done for any length of time.

The Freeloader Child Carrier came to our rescue! I always loved carrying my children as babies on my chest in an infant carrier, but didn’t realize there were products to help you carry older children as well! The Freeloader Child Carrier is specifically designed for children who are older than 2 1/2 and will carry them until they reach 80 pounds or 50 inches! That makes it perfect for hiking, for zoo trips where I can’t fit a wagon into our car, and a stroller just won’t cut it to take care of both my 2 and 3 year old plus everything we pack for the day!

We recently got the chance to test out the Freeloader during an archery contest we attended in Pueblo. We did not have space for a wagon or our stroller, and the terrain was not really fit for either anyway.

For those of you that don’t know, Pueblo in August is HOT! While we brought a tent so that we could sit in the shade, the event required you stand up and walk around A LOT in the heat. We started off the day trying to trudge through with all our kids at our sides. However, our older children quickly retreated to the tent. The younger ones, on the other hand, couldn’t be trusted so far from us in such a large crowd.

In such intense heat, my two year old quickly wanted to be carried around rather than left sweating in the dirt. After about 15 minutes of carrying him on my hip, I gave up and my husband took over. 10 minutes later his back was aching and he was sweaty and miserable.

I decided this was a good chance to break out the Freeloader, and boy am I glad I decided to pack it at the last minute! It was incredibly simple to put on and strapping our son onto the back was easy to figure out. He was immediately comfortably situated and both he and my husband were much cooler. My 2 year old loved being able to look around, in the same direction we were, and be a part of the action. In fact, he even fell asleep soon after!

Later in the day, the 2 year had more energy after his nap and wanted to run around, but our 4 year old started losing stamina. We decided to trade kids on the Freeloader and see how this product held up with a heavier child.

He loved it even more than our 2 year old! He didn’t want to ever get down and was giggling and having a grand old time being toted around. My husband assured me that the carrier remained snug despite the weight difference and felt very secure with either child riding in it. He also promised that he was experiencing no back pain or other side effects from carrying the kids around all day.

I even decided to try it out myself. I took the younger child and loved the feel of having him on my back. Even at 34 weeks pregnant, I was comfortable carrying him around for a long period of time.

Not only is it wonderful to know that your child is safe and secure with you while you hike around, or trot through the zoo or explore a new city, it is also amazing to have your hands free. With 5 kids I always have one that needs something. Being able to hold another child’s hand or easily grab a band-aid or snack is a lifesaver for any outing!

I am definitely storing our Freeloader in the car so that it is readily available for any trip, last minute family walk, or even a long grocery store run!

And, as if this product could get any better, you can now get a special discount on your purchase! Get 10% off your Freeloader Child Carrier when you enter the code “freeloaderfun.”

The Freeloader is small enough to carry-on and stows away neatly, making it perfect for air travel, road trips and more! See more at http://www.myfreeloader.com/ and find Freeloader on facebook at Facebook.com/myfreeloader

Placenta Previa: The Emotional Truth

Dare To Share!

Placenta Previa is a condition that can occur in pregnant women whereby the placenta partially or completely covers the mother’s cervix. When I first learned of this condition it was through a friend who had to have a C-Section because of her diagnosis. The second time, another friend was forced to take full bed-rest and gave birth 12 weeks early due to her condition.  About 3 months ago, I heard it again at my 20 week OB appointment, where I was told that I too had placenta previa.Placenta Previa

I was completely overwhelmed. My doctor informed me that my condition was moderate, meaning that the placenta didn’t entirely obscure my cervix, but that I still had to change my lifestyle. No more working out; no weights or cardio. Plus I was placed on pelvic rest, which means no intercourse.

I thank God everyday that my condition is mild. Women with a complete previa are often on total bed rest and carry a substantial chance of delivering early. Most women with this condition are in and out of their doctors office with spotting and bleeding issues, whereas I have had none. I have been extremely lucky.

Nonetheless, this has been incredibly hard. I have found tons of information on this condition all over the internet talking about physical side-effects and possible outcomes. However, the emotional consequences seem to be a topic to be avoided. This condition has changed my life for the past 3 months, and may very well change the way I bring my child into the world, it has been a rollercoaster of emotions, of disappointment, of fear…

working out with Placenta Previa

For me, working out is a way of life. It is something I have done consistently for the past 12 years and brings me mental peace and physical acceptance of my body. I not only enjoy working out, I need it for peace of mind. With each of my 5 pregnancies I have modified my workouts so that I could continue them throughout each trimester, helping to keep me strong for labor and to recover faster afterwards.Placenta Previa = No Working Out

For over 3 months now I have not been allowed to do more than walk. I feel like a blob, like my body has changed and my mind has regressed back to that college student who simply can’t reconcile with her physical self. I drive my husband crazy, always asking him if I am getting fat in the face and arms; worrying that my thighs are rubbing together more today than they did yesterday.

I know it’s insane! I know, deep down, that I am gaining pretty much the same amount that I have with each pregnancy. But my brain simply can’t wrap itself around that fact. My restricted movement has turned my brain to mush and made me fear that I will never get my pre-baby body back, that my husband, a personal trainer constantly surrounded by the fittest of women, will never see me as the woman I once was…

Pelvic rest and it’s effects on marriage

I have read countless posts by women who struggle with their sex drive after having children. It isn’t about not wanting their husbands, it isn’t about a lack of love; it’s about hormones and exhaustion and lack of time. I must admit to struggling with this at times myself.

However, being told that you aren’t allowed to have sex, to participate in the most intimate act with your significant other, is entirely different. The key word here is INTIMACY, not SEX. We all know that there are plenty of ways to obtain sexual release that don’t require intercourse. However, those particular acts do not create the intimate feeling of love and togetherness that intercourse does.

I am very much in love with my husband. My already stressed brain worries that the lack of intimacy will change our relationship or make him desire me less…forever. If I examine the crazy parts of my emotions, the parts I know are not true/won’t happen, I worry that he will find intimacy elsewhere. While I know without a doubt that he would never do this, my fear is still real, it’s lurking there, picking at my sanity.

They don’t tell you about the emotional stressess associated with pelvic rest. No doctor mentioned how hard it would be to NOT have sex even when your body is bloated and sore and your hormones are out of wack.

A Different approach to labor with Placenta previa

One of the most dangerous effects of placenta previa is the possibility of bleeding during labor. There is a risk of the placenta detaching too soon from the wall of the uterus, or tearing during birth and causing hemorrhaging. It is also a possibility that the placenta could be delivered first, which is not safe for your baby.

Therefore, whether the previa is considered complete or mild, a vaginal birth will not be allowed and a C-Section will be scheduled.

Placenta Previa C Section

I have had 5 vaginal births, and with each labor I have feared nothing more than having to have a C-section. Now that I am 33 weeks along and my previa is still present, it looks like I will not have the choice of a vaginal delivery. And I am devastated.

Yes, I know plenty of women have had C-sections and everything ends up fine. Yes, I know I am being slightly dramatic. But I want a normal delivery. I want my child to come into the world the natural way; to be thrust on my chest where he or she can cuddle and suckle and be loved immediately. I don’t want to lie there and be sown up for an hour, I don’t want my husband to see me like that; weak and taken apart…

I want the same experience I have had with all my babies.

The recovery is also an issue. With a vaginal birth, despite some significant stitches in the past, I  have always been able to walk and go about a fairy normal routine almost immediately. How am I supposed to take care of my family after such a major surgery? I don’t want to depend on others to take care of me and my children.

For me a C-section would be life changing for a week. A week where I regret not having a natural labor to remember with my final baby, a week of having to depend on others to help me and my family. I know I am being childish, but my brain simply can’t wrap around changing the status quo and welcoming a baby in any way other than I already have 5 times previously.

accepting Placenta Previa and it’s limitations

I have definitely not accepted all the challenges of placenta previa. I am upset about what not working out has done to my body everyday, I worry about my marriage and the intimacy we are missing constantly, and I am still holding out hope that something will change and I will be able to deliver my 6th child naturally. There are lots of silent tears, because I know most of these things are silly and shouldn’t be worried about; they will all work themselves out after birth. Ultimately, as long as the baby is healthy and happy, everything else with fall into place.

I never expected all these emotions on top of pregnancy and the hormonal changes that are difficult enough. Placenta previa isn’t just a physical condition, it effects aspects of life that you would never expect it to, in substantial ways.

I know many people think I am probably over reacting, or just being HORMONAL, but my emotions, no matter what they are caused by, are real. I can’t imagine that other women going through the same process, or worse dealing with a complete previa, aren’t struggling emotionally as well. If you are, you aren’t alone…
