Marriage, Ramblings of a Mommy

Betrayal, Apocalypse, and Superhuman Power

If you are or have been pregnant, then I’m sure you remember having some crazy and emotional dreams. During both of my pregnancies, I remember waking up balling my eyes out at least once a week. My husband thought I was crazy.

For me, for some reason those kinds of dreams have continued even after having my kids. I don’t wake up crying anymore but every night I have some crazy, weird dream. Maybe it’s because I’m still an hormonal, emotional wreck most of the time.

I downloaded a dream dictionary app. I looked up the meanings of my most common dreams, and here are my interpretations..

The most common dream I have is my husband leaving me and our kids.. most of the time it’s for someone else..

Betrayal: Typically represents emotional feelings of insecurity, or literal fears of infidelity. Betrayal dreams often occur for years in the wake of actual betrayals by real life partners. (I have an underlying fear that my husband is cheating, which will come true sooner than later. I guess I should be prepared. And he should be prepared to have everything he owns set on fire.)

One of my craziest recurring dreams/nightmares is the world coming to an end, either by fire or attacked and taken over by aliens..

Apocalypse:  Reflections of one’s uncertainty of his or her future. Typically, an aspect of their waking life is coming to an end, which could be a relationship, career or project. (I’m a stay at home mom, so no career or projects. And I have no friend relationships, just family. So again, pointing to the end of my relationship. So far this isn’t going very well.)

Probably my most hated dream is where my daughter(s) Is either injured or dead..

Baby-Injured: Wounded or injured babies can symbolize troubled relationships, which are in danger of “dying”. (I didn’t realize before writing this that they all were pointing to the end of my marriage, that’s not really what I wanted this post to be about. Now I’m seeing this is probably a little depressing, SORRY!)

Another recurring dream I have is where I’m back in high school..

Back in school: Recurring dreams of being back in school typically reflect performance anxiety in our waking lives, The dreamer feels as of he or she has been sent back in school to either learn how to do the job right or be tested. Dreams of being unable to graduate reflect feeling of being unable to graduate to the next level in waking life. (In other words I believe I am a horrible mother or wife, or both.)

The other night I had a dream that I gave birth prematurely to a girl.. ANOTHER girl. She was so tiny, and she was dying. And I’m not pregnant, at least not that I know of.

Birthing: If your baby is still born, has birth defects or born prematurely, think about goals or romantic relationships that you held high hopes for but which now seem or be dead or deceased. (Either I have no goals, need to make goals, or my marriage is dead. Maybe I should make goals on how I’m going to take care of my kids without my husband.. all signs point to this anyway.)

I also have a constant dream I have powers..

Superhuman power: Reflects waking life feelings of confidence to succeed in achieving a goal, even against great obstacles. (I have confidence in the day my kids start school. Or I have powers and I’m going to rule the world!)

In conclusion, based on my dreams, I’m a bad wife and mother, I have no goals, my husband is either going to cheat or leave me or both, everything he owns will be MYSTERIOUSLY burned to the ground, and if he does cheat I’ll most likely chop IT off.. doesn’t look so bright for either of us!

I have always believed your dreams mean something. But after writing this it’s a little scary, I’m hoping these meanings do not come true!

I promise my next post will not be so depressing!

Thanks for reading 😉

My Kid Says the Darndest Things

kids

My oldest daughter, my Lilypad, is 2 years old. Sometimes she says the most hilarious things. So I wanted to share some of them with my fellow mommies!

Lilypad: Mom, why is your mouth all wet? (All I did was burp out loud)

Lilypad: What’s that smell? Me: Mommy needs a shower honey.

Me: Mommy feels like poop. Lilypad: Well go lay down! Me: Haha mommy wishes honey.

Me: You cant come outside, its too cold.  Lilypad: Fine then i’ll never go outside, and ill never play with the puppies.

Lilypad: Where do babies come from? Husband:  UHM, the sky honey. Me: No, don’t confuse her! They come from mommy’s belly. Lilypad: Yeah mommy’s belly.

Lilypad: Mom I want to eat, I never eat.

Lilypad: What’s that? Me: It’s for mommy’s hair. Lilypad: Oh, that’s kinda serious.

(Playing in the dirt) Lilypad: I can’t make a pie, it’s dig less!

Lilypad: Excuse me, I farted!

Grandma: Look at the moon! Lilypad: Yeah it’s got a flashlight on it!

(Me dancing) Lilypad: Mom! Stop shaking your butt!

That’s all I have so far, I will do a second post to this very soon!

If you have any hilarious sayings from your kids you would like to share, please feel free to comment below!

Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go

I know it’s been a while since my last post.. My parents came to visit, so I decided to take a little break from the blogging world.

My dad treated us to Sea World, it was our first time there. My 2 year old daughter had a blast! She saw the whales, dolphins, turtles, and went on a whole bunch of rides.

The next day we went fishing. It was my daughter’s first time holding a fishing pole as well. Although we didn’t catch a dang thing, she still had lots of fun.

I had tons of fun too, but honestly I’m not used to running around with my kids all day. And I have been EXAUSTED.

Now that I’m back to the life of a blogging mom, I decided my topic for today would be tips and tricks for tired moms. For me, even with my much needed 10 cups of coffee during the day.. I’m not exaggerating either.. I’m still exhausted and trying to find the energy to get my big bum off the couch and do something productive.

The first thing I do when my kids and I get up is practically run to the coffee pot. Afterwards, I wash my face with cold water. I actually don’t think it helps me wake up much, but it does feel refreshing.

The first tip I suggest.. and don’t shoot me.. is exercising as early as possible. Exercising in the morning gets the blood pumping, waking you up and gives you lots energy. Even just a 10 minute workout while the kids are eating breakfast will do.

Drink plenty of water throughout the day. If you aren’t hydrated enough, fatigue will kick in. I always drink water like a fish, so I don’t really have to try on this one. But sipping on ice cold water supposedly speeds up your metabolism, so I guess that’s a win-win.

Take a break. Don’t kill yourself trying to keep the house spotless. And if you have kids, that’s pretty much impossible anyway. I can break my back trying to clean up messes all day, and I swear my kids make a tornado of anything and everything right behind me!

Eat healthy. Try eating more foods that give you energy. Whole grains, bananas, apples, oranges, spinach, almonds, fish, yogurt, and eggs are just some food that will give you a little boost. And don’t forget to take your daily multivitamins, those also help.

Take a nap. I know most of you are probably laughing at this one. Truth is, I would be too. Unless you kids take naps at the same time, or you only have one little monster, it’s almost impossible to try and take a little nap. But if you are that lucky, TAKE A FRIGGIN NAP! You’ll feel better, trust me.

Get out of the house. For me, taking my kids anywhere is a hassle in itself. I literally get five minutes down the road and they’re both crying and screaming. And I’m like, Why do I even try?! But even just going to the park or taking a little stroll around your neighborhood is good enough.

Sometimes us moms just need a lazy day where we don’t get off the couch unless we have to pee. With the last few days I’ve had, today is definitely going to be one of those days for me. And it’s okay, don’t feel guilty about it. We deserve to have a lazy day once in a while!

I hope you can try some of these tips and tricks and help you feel less like a Mombie! (Zombie + Mom)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Depression, Ramblings of a Mommy

I am Mom

 

fy

 

During my battle and journey with depression, I realized one of my problems: I had completely lost myself. I am no longer the person I was before having kids. I was a very positive person, enjoying life, outgoing, I always wanted to experience new things.

Who am I now? I am Mom. I look, think, talk, and act like a mom. I know having children that pretty much comes with the territory. But does being a mom have to define who you are?

If someone were to come up to me and ask me…

What do you do? I’m a mom, I wipe butts.

What do you enjoy doing? Sleeping.

What are your hopes and dreams for the future? My kids starting school.

I literally researched for hours on how to find yourself while being a mom. I came upon many articles from mom’s in the same situation. I did find a few that listed steps..

  • Don’t feel guilty about taking time for yourself.
  • Discover your passion.
  • Get out and try new things, get scared, get uncomfortable.

 

These are great tips, but honestly they don’t really apply to me. If you’re like me and don’t have the option of having a babysitter and having some alone time, how are you suppose to get out and try new things?

You know that tv show, Take Me To Your Mother? With that Andrea chick? She meets mom’s all around the world getting advice on being a mom. She travels the world,  trying all these new things on finding herself. But most of the time where’s her kid?? I’m not bashing her in any way, I’m mostly just jealous!

So if you’re in my situation, and you have found a way to find yourself please share your story! I would love to read it!

Zombie Poop

Today I look like a zombie..Pale, yellow red face (don’t ask me how), and huge puffy red eyes. I think I feel worse than I look.. I.e Zombie Poop!

I could post a pic but I wouldn’t want to scare you away.. Ha!

I think I have a cold, maybe the flu.. I wish I could just take a sick day, lay in bed and watch tv all day. But do mommy’s get sick day? Ha think again!

I remember one time I was puking my guts out every 10 minutes and my toddler standing next to me screaming hysterically.

Funny cause when my husband get sick he gets to sleep all friggin day. He has a headache and he sleeps all day.. MUST BE NICE!!

I swear if Mom’s got paid for all that we do.. and don’t do.. we’d probably be millionaires! True story though..

P.s. This is me…

To me being a mommy means…

-No sleep

-no relaxing

-no drinking

-no shaving

-showering once a week

-looking like a zombie

-feeling like a zombie

-no social life

-no sex

-no romantic date with the hubby

-no romance at all

These are just a few things mommy’s give up but it is true what they say.. It’s all worth it!
