Family schedules and routines

I thrive on routine. I was wondering what everyone's cleaning, errand, life schedules and routines were. We used to do a big clean every saturday and then just keep the house picked up the rest of the week and do dishes and laundry as needed. When Kendall was born and I became an official stay at home mom I would deep clean one section of the house each day- laundry monday, dust on tuesday, bathrooms on wed. etc.- and still try to keep things picked up. I've fallen off the deep clean each week bandwagon lately and want to get back on in a way that meshes well with taking care of two kids.

So what are your schedules like? Does anyone do the fly lady route? Any tips or suggestions?

Really, are you sure?

OK here it goes, this a vent about myself.....
so after a long day of not showering, trying to clean my house, taking a nap and then a trip to the grocery store, I was waiting in line at "the Walmart", as my nephew says, in the pharmacy department to get some allergy medicine... yes I had allergies too that day, and the line was taking for-ev-er. I was getting super impatient, and started just looking around and getting irritated that only one register was open. Then, it became my turn, YEAH!!, and of course the medicine I needed had to be put in by a pharmacist, of course, anyways, so here I am, ready to scream..... and then the lady next to me says " excuse me, you have the best complexion". I think I said thank you, but I was TOO in shock to even blink.... I convinced myself she had to be joking... I mean here I am having a normal day with no makeup and hair slapped in a pony( a very small one) and she had the nerve to compliment me... yeah right....
So here's my vent:
why couldn't I have just taken the compliment and honestly say "thanks!!" and then possibly say something nice back? Why did I get defensive and convince myself she was insane?

A New Treat

Has anyone heard of Bakerella? Maybe everyone has and I'm way out of the loop! But I tried these cakes pops/bites last night and they were awesome! If you use a good cake recipe and a good homemade cream cheese frosting ... delicious! There's a store called Sweet Tooth Fairy here in Utah that sells cake bites and I always wanted to know how she did it. Well look no further ladies... Great for any occasion.

Good Morning Mommy, I love you!

My son is 10 months old and maybe it's because I'm his mom, the cutest baby ever. This morning is my example of why! We had a rough night last night, (he still doesn't sleep all the way through the night, but I have been getting 6 hours in a row) He was up 3 times between 12 and 6 am.... yuck! Then this morning I hear him making the cutest noises in his crib, so I peek to see this cute little boy. He is all smiles and reaches up for his mom with Blankey in one hand and Paci in mouth, you could see the big grin past the paci, I give him a good morning squeeze which usually make my horrible nights sleep all worth it,


I smell it, I feel it, and it stinks! That's right ladies BLOW OUT! Up the back, out the legs, you name it! He was so proud of himself, I was trying to not get it everywhere, it was almost up to mid back, so as I was trying to not make him swim in it, but he was kicking and twisting, and of course his new favorite, love to check with his hand to make sure all privates are there and accounted for!
Well, that's how my morning started, and yet I love him still! Hope you have a great day!
