What’s Momma Listening to? The Idiots


As part of my new weekly (fingers crossed) spotlight on my love of podcast I’d like to introduce you to, The Idiots!

Andy Julia and his pack of idiots help get me through days when I wants to throw something or someone off a tall structure. This is a new show for me but one I needed without knowing it was missing.

It reminds me of the Howard Stern show, no filter! Exactly how I like it! I lost track of Howard once he moved to satellite and now too much time has passed. I’m just too busy to keep up. It is what it is.

They tackle topics that range from serious to randomness. Not everyone agrees at all times but they respect each other. That’s what counts.

This wasn’t a show I went searching for, I actually came across it through Andy. He commented on a post I made in a group I frequent. It’s amazing how interconnected the podcasting world is, I would never have suspected that Andy and his crew would be associated with GayTalk 2.0, if I based it on outward appearance only. This further proves my point that you can’t judge a book by its cover, although that’s EXACTLY how I choose books! The irony isn’t lost on me folks.

I’ve learned some new dirty words, which is always a plus! I’m becoming familiar with just how infected a finger can be, don’t ask, just listen to the show.

I started with the most recent shows but I am making my way backwards so that I can become more familiar with each host. I’m horrible with names so it’s going to take me time to know the entire crew.

So far I’ve related with Drea Richard and Chris Hayes the most. I share similar views with both so it doesn’t surprise me but we’re not so similar that I blindly nod along with every word spoken. I don’t think anyone should ever have that much in common, where’s the fun in that?!?

Andy Julia has a great voice, it’s the perfect mix of gravel and smoke. It’s like you never want him to stop talking but never want him to use the voice for evil, like say…toward you, in a fight.

This is really just a podcast that allows a group of friends to share their daily communications. I can see the same conversation happening at someone’s house over the weekend or during dinner on any given night. The close nit feelings that come with the personal interactions allow you to quickly delve in without fear of missing anything. It’s hard to miss, trust me!

Something I find immensely enjoyable is when I disagree with a topic or someone’s stance on the show. It’s because they give reasons for those beliefs and it allows me to understand a new perspective. That’s something I’m learning to embrace more and more as I get older.

This most likely isn’t a show for anyone under 18. I’d give it an NC-17 just to cover all bases. The discussions can be graphic yet informative but it might be something you want to chat with your kids about prior to listening. Regardless, if you’re not easily offended and enjoy vulgar humor this is the podcast you’ve been missing!

TV…What is it good for?!?


It’s well known that once you become a parent that you also begin to watch more cartoons than you did prior to children. Or at least you now watch cartoons that are more child friendly. Maybe, who knows?

My point is, cartoons.

While watching Loud House, Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First, etc. I’ve noticed a theme. They all teach lessons.

Be a good person.

Be truthful.

Share with others.

Learn to see things from a different perspective.

Forgive people.

Accept people.

The lists goes on and on. Great lessons taught in a simple way. Which got me thinking…at what point does that change? Continue reading “TV…What is it good for?!?”

Welcome Back Creativity!


For months now I have been struggling. By nature I am a creative person.

I’m not the most talented person by any means, but when I can create something that makes me happy….well it centers me. It gives me balance.

Despite not feeling inspiration for anything, I have still been picking up little pieces here and there so that when I was ready I would have the materials at hand.

I was really starting to panic. Nothing was catching my interest like before. Not reading, not art projects, not even the random tv shows I love to watch. Continue reading “Welcome Back Creativity!”

I Say Friday, You Say Party (Thanks Teen Titans GO!)


Happy Friday!!

friday-1270362_960_720

This has been some week, right!

Well, maybe for me. Monday through Wednesday is a blur, I’m pretty sure it was just one long day. I felt like I was constantly going!! That was actually good, these last two days have dragged ass and has made for long work days.

On the home front my little Ninja is being her marvelous self. Last night she chased the laser with the cat and tried sweeping the backyard. Gotta love a kid who volunteers to clean, and at such a young age too! She’s also learned how to blow kisses, it’s the cutest thing EVER!

I’ve reached a point that my “fat” clothes no longer want to fit right at all. SIGH…I mean, it’s a good thing but also means I need to go shopping. I hate shopping! Dressing rooms always seem to be so damn hot, or maybe that’s just me having a panic attack. I can never find a decent shirt.

ATTENTION CLOTHING DESIGNERS!! SOME OF US ARE LONG WAISTED!

I’m also trying to get into accessories! My friend is selling the Paparazzi jewelry (EVERYTHING IS $5) and I’m completely addicted! I want to buy everything and it’s a struggle now to! The rings are to die for! They have elastic bands so no worries about sausage fingers.

I don’t get anything for asking you to check it out. I just love it and share what I love!

Yesterday was bring your kid to work day, I cannot wait until my little bird is old enough to bring to work! It’s perfect that she isn’t now, I work with some people I don’t want tainting my kids with their negative shit. They’ll be gone by the time she can come with me. Damn, that sounds really mean but oh well. I’m in that kind of mood today.

I’m happy but not taking any shit! I highly recommend it!

SO happy Friday and enjoy your weekend. Love your people and love yourself!

#Momlife: Year One


I know that I’ve been a mother, technically, since the moment of inception but this post isn’t about that. It’s about my first year as a mother to a living, breathing, human-being.

To say that it has changed me and my world is a total and complete understatement. Of course it has, if it didn’t I would completely judge myself. Creating, growing and nurturing a human being is a life changing experience. It is always on my mind.

Am I doing this right?

Am I doing that right?

Why isn’t she sleeping through the night?

Do all her teeth have to come in at once?

Why don’t I understand all her cries and whines? Shouldn’t I know these things by now? Why do they keep changing? Continue reading “#Momlife: Year One”
