The other morning Lydia was happily sitting in her high chair munching on cheerios, so I decided to take advantage of the situation and unload the dishwasher. Of course, the second she saw I had it in my heart to do something productive, she got impatient and started whining in protest. The measuring cup I was unloading had a little bit of water in it so I splashed her, which to my delight she thought was hilarious (and not offensive). The next five minutes were then spent unloading the dishwasher while performing a broadway-quality sing and dance number, complete with a splash zone that would have made Shouka proud. My production was such a success, not only did I manage to entirely unload the dishwasher, I even got it halfway loaded again. HOORAY! 

The whole situation felt like a #momwin and also exactly like something my own mother would have done...which would ALSO be considered a #momwin, right? ;) 


Brie cheese + wheat thins + peperoncinis // BUYING A COUCH!

Radio Ad: "Participants in the study must be between 12 years of age and older."

Stephen: "It's a very good true....a 'very good true'?! Did I just say that?!"

Stephen (as I'm getting out the Brie cheese): "Hello, it's Brie.."
Both (in unison): "I've been wondering if after all this time you'd like some cheese..."

  1. In the gand scream of things, when a "#momwin" is also a "win-win" it is the best! :)

  2. Must say that the mom win is the best kind of win! And... totally in agreement with the This Is Us rewind! Oh I love that show already, and if you want a recipe for the exact copycat of the Cheesecake Factory potatoes and also their Chicken Cosrtoletta which is clearly the best thing on the menu, just holler. I got you.
