Hide the Dishes and Stuff the Junk in the Closet!

I am so excited to be hosting the lovely ladies of SITS here today! [I'm so excited that I'm hosting you all online and not in my currently disaster-level dirty house.] The community at The Secret is In The Sauce has been so fabulous-I have loved discovering a new blog each day, I have found some wonderful new bloggy friends, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the Featured Bloggers. That's why I'm so honored and excited to be the Featured Blogger for today! I'll offer you a virtual cup of tea [all of my real tea cups are dirty anyway].

Okay, so I may have said excited a few too many times. Sorry. I try to be more creative than that but I'm really, er, stoked about this. It's hard not to go all golden-retriever-when-their-owner-drives-up on you guys. Deep breath. Calm. Right.

Welcome to my blog. I'm MrsM, and I'm the wife of Hubby and the stay at home unschooling mom of three kidlets Monkey(5), Baby Bug(20 months), and The Bean(5 months). My blog is the place I go to meet new people and share what's on my mind. I wish there was some sort of a theme that I could present to you but mostly the recurring themes here are "Ooh, shiny!", "Something weird I did", "You'll never believe what the kids did", and "Randomness". I write about unschooling, I write about marriage, I write about eating junk food while watching The Biggest Loser, I write about my drunken-bear approach to exercise....it's a lot of fun.

I love meeting new bloggy friends, so on Fridays I often feature one of my blog followers for Mommy's Fabulous Find Friday. I also try to do a review and giveaway about once a month. Oh-and I make sure to tell a lot of funny stories about the kids which they will totally hate me for later. I'm already saving for therapy, I might as well make it count! LoL!

I guess the best way for you to see what I'm about is to read my posts for yourself. Might I suggest a few?

Motherhood Down and Dirty............in which I talk about how motherhood has changed me.

5 Minutes is More Than Enough........in which I expose exactly how wild the kidlets get.

I'd love to get your opinion on Pregnancy-Is Age Just A Number?

And if you're in the mood for a good laugh about marriage and getting older I think Somewhere between CSPAN and the Backseat would be a good read for you.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by SITSas, and for the fabulous opportunity to be today's featured blogger!

I'm going to have to go and see if I've finished the last of my chill pills (they're secretly M&Ms ssssssssh!)....

beenomom said...

Just popping in from SITS, and did some peaking around. I love your post on tv watching and children. I whole heartedly agree. Tv is just like everything else in the world. It can be very beneficial, as long as it's not abused... say like as a daytime babysitter for your kids! Glad to see you were brave and posted your opinions on the subject!

Congrats on your SITS Day! I love the name of your blog, I'd been warned about this happening when I was about to become a mom..."soon no one will know your name other than mommy!" I thought this was a ridiculous comment...ha! I obviously knew nothing.

strokeofliving said...

Congratulations on being SITS featured blogger today, good job!! I love that you call M&M's chill pills. That's great!! I attended the first SITScation and ordered room service for dinner the first night which I couldn't eat due to stomach issues so the dessert that I also ordered was breakfast the next morning - a yummy creme brulee - so it's nice to meet someone who does, kind of, the same thing.

Lindsay Rudolph said...

Happy SITS Day! I love the little names for your kids...especially The Bean. That is what we call our little girl who is 18 months...The Bean! I am excited to read your blog. Have a great day!

Corrie Howe said...

Happy SITS day. I agree, Motherhood does change us...for the better and worse. I kinda wished I had my kids earlier...when I had more energy (in our forties)but God had different plans for us...and I never ceased to be amazed at what my kids can do when I'm out of the room.
