Mommy Madness Blog Hop - Mommy Time

I am participating in the Mommy Madness Friday Blog Hop this week!  I figured doing a few blog hops may get me posting a bit more frequently and diversify the posts a bit.  So, this week's theme for the Blog Hop is "Mommy Time" or what I do to escape the madness.  I don't do anything really specific (and let's face facts, I often do not escape the madness - I embrace it), but I do like watching TV.  My favorite shows are what my friend calls "Murder, Death, Kill" shows - Law and Order, CSI, NCSI.  But, I also like The Good Wife, Glee, Parenthood, Modern Family and The Middle.  I have become addicted to my DVR since I can't predict when I'll be able to watch TV.  I also like to read mysteries (some more murder, death, kill).  In addition, I am a member of Chico Mothers Club and I like the monthly Bunco games and the monthly socials.  So nice to get away, but still be able to talk about your kid(s) with people who know the realities! 

I do think that Mommy Time is important, but I also find that Bean is a stress reliever for me in some ways.  Its hard to be stressed out and upset when she does her goofy "beeeeees" instead of please or her elephant noise accompanied by her arm lifting like a trunk.  She's just too cute!  So, although she sometimes drives me mad, she also can be a great mood-lifter!


  1. she sounds very cute hard not to love them and laugh when we have little ones around

  2. Thanks for joining us for Mommy Madness! I'm following you back but for some reason I showed up on your list without a picture - thats happened a lot today. :( But i'm there!

    I'm the same way! I dvr everything because #1 I hate watching commercials because I never get to watch an entire show if i have to sit there through it all. #2 It makes my life easier. So much better to watch as I can.

    I know exactly what you mean about kids being a stress reliever too! Your daughter sounds adorable!

    Thanks for participating!
