10 Reasons Why I Am Rockin' This Mom Thing

There are some things that I do that make me feel like I'm rockin' this whole wife and mom thing.  Just a few little things but they have the potential to make me feel good, like "I've GOT this!"

Oddly enough, if I DON'T do them I don't particularly feel like a "bad" wife or mom.  But when I DO them I feel like I have scaled the heights of wifedom and momdom, and life is good.

Here's my list.  Prepare yourselves:

  1. Stocking the fruit and vegetable drawers in the fridge so that they are full.  
  2. Making sure I have at least two gallons of milk in the fridge.
  3. Doing the dishes after midnight and cleaning up my kitchen instead of waiting until morning.
  4. Cleaning one of my hot spots.
  5. Straightening my pantry and checking expiration dates.
  6. Having an extra bottle of Ranch on hand for when my son's IV of Ranch dressing runs out.....
  7. Keeping my husband's sock and underclothes drawer well stocked.
  8. An empty laundry hamper.
  9. Shaving my legs.
  10. Changing the bed sheets.
Did you expect something earth shattering?  I told you they were little things!  ;)

What are YOUR little things?

  1. Ha ha! Those are a lot of things I cheer about, too! It's all about the little things :-)
    Blessings :-)

  2. Hi Nan,

    The Lord brought you and your family to mind this morning while my husband and I were walking. He thought I was crazy when, in the middle of praying for our families, I started praying for Nan. He thought for a moment you were some long lost relative he'd missed at the last family reunion. HA!

    Well, my little things are
    *having a laundry basket full of CLEAN, folded clothes
    * having my pantry stocked with BOGOS+coupon items :)
    * Cooking and freezing 5 lbs. of hamburger and having it ready for fast meals
    *Creating something (I'm not crafty) and having my daughter tell me it looks so good I could sell it
    *Having my married daughter call me for one of my recipes, "'cause yours is the best" :)

    1. Hahahaha, I LOVE that. So funny, lol! Just tell him I'm his long lost sister, lol! Love your list! I also love that laundry basket of clean folded clothes. ;)

  3. I need to print this as you have this mom-thing together!! Making me laugh in the middle of the morning (er, um...afternoon...where did the morning go?)

    1. Hahahaha! Well if I have it together I keep forgetting where I put it, lol!

  4. We always require 2 gallons of milk in our fridge. My 2 little ones drink it like there is no tomorrow.

    An empty laundry basket, what's that? LOL

    Shaving my Legs, what's that? LOL

    Yeah I'm not a Super Mom by no means!!!

    1. Lol to the milk! We always used to have FOUR gallons of milk in there because our oldest was drinking it like crazy. He still drinks a lot but not as much as before.

  5. An IV of Ranch? Great idea! I'll add another line to my IV of coffee!! ;)

    Great post!

    1. Great idea, lol! We love Ranch in this family but our youngest just seems to really love it. I CANNOT run out, lol! ;)

  6. Keeping the dishes and laundry done and having my floors cleaned is a big thing in our home. It does add up in my husband's eyes for some reason. If I let it slide for just two days you can tell a huge difference in our home and how it runs. I also have to make sure my husband has sweet tea in the fridge at all times.

    1. Yup! People do tend to notice when the dishes and laundry pile up. We have darker floors so it's not as noticeable unless your feet start to stick to them, lol!

  7. 8, 9, 10 are big ones for me, too! Great list and I'm going to check out the Linky Party.

    1. Awesome! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment and hope you like the party! :)

  8. LOL! I love it. This cheered my heart because I feel like I rock when I do similar things.
    underwear is a crucial thing here!

    1. Hahahaha! I guess great minds think alike, right? Lol! I can't help it, I really do feel like a rock star sometimes when I do these...... ;)

  9. Oh, man, I need to go change the sheets so I can be rockin' this mom thing too! And I'll be sure to get the dishes done before I crawl in between those crisp clean sheets. Thanks for the reminder!

    1. Hahahaha! Good for you, lol! Oh man, there's nothing better than crawling in between those wonderfully fresh sheets! :)
