Mom Life as told by Kevin McCallister

After Claire was born, we quickly realized that having three kids can sometimes feel a lot like having ten kids. And more often than not, when two of them are sleeping or playing so nice, the other is doing their best to cause chaos, which always makes me want to yell “There are fifteen people in this house, and you’re the only one who has to make trouble!” So this is for you, fellow moms & Home Alone lovers, all the times during the day where Kevin McCallister says it best.

Harper, the minute I think I got away with waking up to have coffee in silence before everyone else is awake.

When I finally get the babies down for naps & Harper is about to yell something or hit a button on the loudest toy in the room.

 

When I finally get a caffeine buzz & want to do all the fun things.

When I think I have my shit together carrying a kid, my diaper bag, a sippy cup, my coffee & five other things.

Β How I feel when the mailman rings the doorbell during naptime.

When I catch the kids doing whatever it is they know they aren’t supposed to be doing after I have been in the other room for five seconds.

The look I get from the cashier at the grocery store when I roll up to the register with three kids, three bottles of wine & a frozen pizza.

When I am sneaking into the girls room at night in the pitch black and step on a lego or the razor sharp heel of a princess shoe.

When I’m kinda mad at Brandon for coming home late from work but really I can’t contain my excitement to see him because KIDS ARE CRAY.

 

Can you relate? Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals. πŸ˜‰

  2. This is AWESOME, and SPOT on!! I have a toddler (21 months) and two month old twin girls…it's pretty much chaos all day and I can totally relate to all of these, especially the last one πŸ™‚ Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family!

  3. I absolutely adore you and your blog. Thank you for always brightening my day! I received the koozies in the mail and just can't wait to give them out as gifts! Merry Christmas to you and your family!!

  4. omg when people knock on my door during naptime… I have little dogs that usually aren't TOO barky, except when someone comes to the door. I actually made a sign that I hang in my front window during naps that says "BABIES SLEEPING PLEASE DO NOT KNOCK CALL" & then my phone number. Of course, now I have to make sure my phone is on silent because the dogs have learned that when it rings there might be someone at the door.

  5. too funny πŸ™‚ Our little ones are 4, 3 and 19 months. Cheers to the craziness of life of a SAHM! and to anyone who says 3 is kind of the same as 2. – NOT AT ALL – Merry Christmas!!!!

  6. This is the greatest thing. Ever. I've watched Home Alone at least 7 times already this season and even saw it in theaters for the 25th anniversary. I've worn my Home Alone sweatshirt several times and got a "Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal" mug for my office white elephant and really just want to end up with my own gift somehow. Home Alone is a way of life. Am I getting creepy with my obsession yet? πŸ˜‰

  7. Talk To His Heart Review

    Many times a date can start out perfectly fine and no one would expect that it would turn into a nightmare, but it has happened and many times people get traumatized, hurt and even killed. Sometimes it only takes one word or a sarcastic remark to set it off. Other times it builds over a period of hours till finally a person feels unable to endure the tension of being rejected in some form any longer and erupts in a fit of hostile anger.
