simple pleasures

I am a mother. It is my job title, my raison d’etre, and it’s a never-changing constant in my life. It is not, however, who I am. Motherhood has defined my life, but it is not my identity. I was a person with hopes, dreams, and life goals before having a baby. I laughed at dirty jokes, got into trouble, and went dancing in the rain. Although I have adopted the second name of ‘Mom’, I still remain the person I was before I did so.


Okay, so this isn’t a mommy post, in fact, it has nothing to do with parenting—except that it relates to this website. I was going through some of my analytics (if you don’t know what those are, don’t ask…it’s super boring). Anyway, the report showed me a list of search terms used on Google and Yahoo that brought people to me. Some of them were generic, very basic things. And then there there were five that caught my eye and had me wetting my pants—which,, isn’t all that hard, but still, I was laughing my ass off!

*Side Note: I seem to be drawn to the number 5…any post I make with lists—which is a lot because lists are fun—usually has 5 things in it…weird, huh? Maybe I’m just too lazy to go any higher?…Oh well? On with the show!


One of the more fun aspects of having a toddler is that I get to make all the big decisions in life for him…like what he’s going to wear for Halloween. For the past two months, I’ve been scouring the Internet for costume ideas for the boy. I’ve come across the basics (i.e.: superheroes, fuzzy animals, and cowboys), but I’ve also found several inappropriate, albeit hilarious, get-ups. A friend of mine compiled a list of the best worst ones (which you can see ).

I still haven’t quite decided what to dress Piggle as, but I’ve narrowed it down to four.

Keep in mind that I have a sick sense of humor, and I’m likely going to hell for choosing any of the following:
