The School Of Mom- Sweeping the Floor

I was going to combine this lesson with dumping the trash because I thought it would go rather quickly, but when it was all over, we were all exhausted. Who knew that sweeping the floor would be so much work? Maybe because brooms are automatic weapons or toys in the hands of a young boy… … Read moreThe School Of Mom- Sweeping the Floor

The School Of Mom- Cleaning The Bathroom

This is an important lesson in The School Of Mom, and one I’ve been looking forward to teaching: cleaning the bathroom. I swear I could hear angels singing in the background as I taught my two young sons how to change out the toilet paper roll and clean the toilet. A-men. They were great sports. … Read moreThe School Of Mom- Cleaning The Bathroom

The School Of Mom- Laundry Part 2

In Laundry-Part 1, we got all of the laundry sorted and into the washing machine with detergent.┬áPart 2 is folding, hanging and putting the laundry away. And as I mentioned, the boys had enough time between loads to start playing and bickering by the time it came to fold. The Toddler Task I had planned … Read moreThe School Of Mom- Laundry Part 2

The School Of Mom- Laundry Part 1

Laundry is not fascinating, we all know this. And it’s a lengthy process. We did the laundry lesson all in one day, but I am breaking it up into two parts because there was a lot to do and learn. This lesson was on gathering clothes, sorting them, getting them into the machine and getting … Read moreThe School Of Mom- Laundry Part 1

The School Of Mom-Vacuuming

The only thing in the world my toddler hates more than haircuts is the vacuum cleaner. I’ve tried many times to get him to look at it up close without it being plugged in, I’ve tried to let him push it around but he won’t have anything to do with it, he’s terrified of it. … Read moreThe School Of Mom-Vacuuming

The School Of Mom-Dishes

For the first lesson in The School Of Mom, I cut right to the heart of what I need help with the most: dishes. I do a big load in the dishwasher every day. If I slack at all, we drown immediately in dirty dishes. The level of enthusiasm for this lesson was pretty low… … Read moreThe School Of Mom-Dishes

Phone Jail

As phones are able to do more and more things for us, we tend to spend more and more time on them. You always see pictures of people at restaurants spending more time on their phones than with each other. I sometimes think we are just a few steps away from the hover chair society … Read morePhone Jail

The Morning Battle

I have resolved to putting a paper plate under my coffee cup every morning. Because I’m not going to stop filling my cup up to the top, and the kids aren’t going to stop shaking the table. Some battles aren’t worth choosing. One battle I do choose, however for the sake of all of our … Read moreThe Morning Battle

Mom Toy Assembly

Hey, speaking of Christmas morning (now that no one is speaking about it anymore), you know who I have all the respect in the world for after Christmas morning 2014 in the Rogers household? Dads. Or if you’re a single parent on Christmas morning, you. You do it all, you are a saint and I … Read moreMom Toy Assembly

We’re Debt FREEEEEE!!!

We drive dinged-up older cars that define the word “used.” One has 150K miles and the other is pushing 200. Our mismatched living room furniture leaves much to be desired. In fact, all of our furniture leaves much to be desired. Our dining room table belonged to my husband in college. And our TV now … Read moreWe’re Debt FREEEEEE!!!
