The W(h)ine Hour..

Every household has one…the whine hour. It’s those bewitching hours between approximately 5 and 8pm in the evening when the kids go crazy and moms across the world lose their minds completely. It doesn’t matter if you have babies, toddlers, kids, tweens, or teens; those hours of dinner/homework/bath time/ bedtime can just about do a momma in. What is a girl to do? It’s simple and brilliant actually, just slip in a little wine of your own! Now, I’m not suggesting anyone down a bottle of whiskey everyday between the hours of 5 and 8, in fact if you do that you will have a few whine hours of your own the next morning. Basically, a little wine during the whine hours will keep you out of the padded cell at the local cookoo house where people will walk by and peek in your little window and say things like “aww, poor mom has lost her marbles” and “hmmm, now that’s a crazy one right there, sits in there all day and hits herself over the head with a Barbie and a hotwheel”. Don’t smirk, it can happen.

So, enjoy the tales of my whine hour, and how I survive each and everyone of one of them with a sense of humor and a good bottle of wine! After all, the whine hour comes around every single day, a girl has to be prepared!

Being A Mom.

Children are a blessing
And that I can't deny
No matter how you love them
Your patience they will try

They come as tiny babes
It's called a bundle of joy
And then they start their crying
Maybe they need soy?

As toddlers they are on their feet
And really on the go
It seems that many days
You only tell them no

When they get to pre-school age
You think you've lost your mind
Reasoning with a three year old
And wiping little behinds

Then off to school they go
Learning to read and write
So busy all of the day
You can't wait to say "night night"

Growing into bigger kids
The limits they are testing
Another broken window?
Oh, surely you are jesting

When they hit the teenage years
Things get a little crazy
Always on their cell phone
And when did you get so lazy?

And then it's time to let them go
And hope with all your might
That they don't crash and burn
When they first take flight

Even thru all the trials
Being a mom is the best
How boring life would be
If all you did was rest  ;)

**The reason I can find humor in all things mommy is because of the three little men I am so very blessed to have.  They make me laugh every single day. :)

The wine of the day is Le Faux Frog chardonnay in honor of my mom, the frog lady.  She has taught me the meaning of the word mom, and that meaning is love.  She is the most loving, giving, encouraging, patient, selfless person I know and when I grow up I want to be just like her. :)

Happy Mother's Day!
