But you look good for having kids!

Is this more what you had in mind, good sir?

It never fails. Every time I venture out to the store with all six kids in tow, some random stranger stops to harass ask me about my family. The questions are almost always the same, and typically things that are none of their business. Inquisitive strangers make the world go round y'all. Anyhow, at some point during the interrogation inappropriate prodding questioning by said stranger, they normally utter something along these lines: "But you look good for having six kids!" Do what?! What the fuck is … [Read more...]

I ignore my kids every day

4:00 on the dot. They get off the bus, run down the street, bust through the door, and the barrage begins. For the first 10 minutes, I listen intently. Excited ramblings about the boy on the bus that gave them suckers, the gross tasting chocolate milk they had at lunch, the excuses for getting a check because homework wasn't turned in, the announcement of an upcoming field trip next month. And then I'm done. The tuning out begins. Because frankly, it's boring. Uninteresting. Annoying. Irritating. So I … [Read more...]

Whine Coolers – The Perfect Cocktail for a Mom PJ Party

Strawberry Whine Cooler

As a mom, you know how hard it can be to get a night out with your best girlfriends. You have to get all dressed up (which I admit can be fun), figure out where to go, who is going to be the designated driver, fork over a good bit of cash for drinks and cover charges, and then the night always seems to end before you are all ready to go home. Instead of going through all that hassle, why not just have a girls' night in instead? A pajama party with your girlfriends is loads of fun and you can totally rock your yoga pants … [Read more...]

Red Wine Hot Chocolate

Red Wine Hot Chocolate recipe | Real Mom Talk

This grown up hot chocolate is the perfect treat for a cold winter afternoon, curled up with a good book on the couch.  I wanted to try something new and I am big hot cocoa lover, so I started googling around and came across a recipe for bittersweet hot chocolate with red wine.  Shazam! I knew I had to make that one, because chocolate and wine.  Duh. I changed up the recipe a bit because it sounded super chocolatey and I didn't want to go overboard.  It came out fabulous.  I mean, rich, full flavored, creamy and … [Read more...]

I like it tart and dirty (my martinis I mean)

lemon drop martini

Hellooooo lovelies! Today is my super special birthday, so in honor of this fantabulousness, I thought it would be fun to share my favorite drink recipes with you all! In case you don't know, vodka is my favorite.  Well, along with beer and wine.  But my favorite liquor for sure.  So martinis are on the top of my list of super fave cocktails, of course.  But not super sweet martinis, because I'm not a fan of sugary drinks.  Instead, I like tart and sour and salty drinks, which is obvious by my top three listed below. … [Read more...]

Talking to your teen boy about hygiene

Talking to your teen son about hygiene | Real Mom Talk

Sometimes there come those times when you have to talk to your growing boy about serious stuff.  Like hygiene.  And how he smells god awful.  And how you can't take it anymore.  Lol. Thankfully, Ryan and I have a good relationship with each other, so talking about anything personal is no biggie for us.  We laugh, I poke fun and make jokes, he looks at me like I'm dumb.  It's pretty awesome. But I know for some moms out there that haven't had a sit down hygiene talk yet with their boys, it can be a little awkward. … [Read more...]
