Funny Stuff a Mom Has to Deal With

Roseanne Barr once said, “I know how to do anything – I’m a mom.” And being spit-up on, puked on or peed on is only the beginning of the strangest things we, as mothers, have to deal with on an everyday basis. So much so, I sometimes feel that I could win the Nobel Prize for Ingenuity, if they ever started such an award!
I know I’m not alone in this. Anyone who is a mom knows you never stop being one. From trying to change a diaper using only one hand while holding you baby up with the other to waking up in the middle of the night worrying about your 40-year-old kid, we mothers have all been there and done that. Here are some nuggets that I’ve collected over the years of funny stuff we moms have to deal with.
When my daughter was four, she asked me why I married Dad rather than someone who wasn’t already part of the family. That needed some quick thinking. Then there was the day when I went to the kitchen for 2 minutes to get a glass of water, leaving my daughter in yard with our German Shepherd. I came out to find that my daughter had bitten the dog squarely on his neck and was holding on for dear life. It took some coaxing to make her let go. The poor dog was so confused!
The first thing I did was wash all the fur out of my daughter’s mouth. The next thing I did was ask the child why in God’s name she would want to bite the dog? Her answer was quite simple. She wanted to teach the dog a lesson and show him what it felt like to be bitten. She was sure that once he experienced the unpleasantness of it all, he would tell all his friends and dogs would stop biting. Who could argue with that?
My personal favorite is when my daughter asked me how I knew everything. She was awe-struck after repeated experiences of me being able to fix stuff for her. My answer was that I was only allowed to be her mother because I had passed the Mommy Test with flying colors. This answer made things really clear for her, not only did she realize that mom could fix anything! Oh well, at least that belief lasted for a few years till adolescence.
And if you want to really understand the meaning of multi-tasking, watch a mom go through her daily chores!
Despite all the funny stuff I’ve dealt with, muddled through or just plain given up on, I wouldn’t trade it all for anything in the world. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Desert Recipes to Outsmart Your Sweet Tooth

Desert Recipes to Outsmart Your Sweet Tooth- Image.JPG
I have to confess that I have a sweet tooth that will some day be my undoing. Craving for ice creams, chocolates and anything sweet at all odd hours of day and night goes straight to my hips and of course my cavities!!! Despite anything Nigella Lawson might say, when your children get your sweet genes, it is cause for worry. This is why I came up with the idea of looking for natural sugars and healthier alternatives to trick all the sweet teeth my family could throw at me. I researched, experimented and finally here are some recipes that give you all the sweet you need without causing as much damage.
Put a lot of fruits in your custard: Custard is a favorite with my children. A very easy but useful technique to reduce the quantity of sweet in it is to put a lot of fresh cut fruits that have natural sugar. This will reduce the amount of sugar you need to put in it.
Use natural items, such as honey: Another option to reduce your sugar consumption while satisfying the needs of your sweet tooth is to put some honey in your yoghurt instead of sugar. You can make a huge variety of milkshakes by putting in fresh fruits that naturally sweeten the drink. These milkshakes will not be healthier but also have better nutritional value.
Fruit Salad: Fruit salad with yoghurt dressing and a dash of cinnamon and honey in it is not highly nutritious but also appropriate for people wanting to avoid sugar.
Opt for Dark Chocolates: Using dark chocolates instead of regular chocolates for your cakes, milkshakes and other dessert recipes is a good idea if you wish to outsmart your sweet tooth.
Cinnamon: Using cinnamon in your dessert recipes is another way to sweeten the dish without raising the calorie count.
Carrots: Using carrots to make cakes and desserts is a good option too, if you wish to reduce the use of sugar.
Try out these recipes for yourself. They can become favorites with your family, as they have with mine. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++About the Author: Hi, I’m Allen Jennifer from Livesnet, a great site for you if you want to see reviews on baby gears and positive parenting tips as well.
