SMM: There are 50 ways to leave your children

My lastest on Suburban Misfit Mom:
Don’t need to be coy, Roy. And make a new plan, Stan.
There are 50 ways to leave your children. 
Okay, not literally. I’m talking about what we working moms like to call: Business Trips. Not only do we work and be a mom simultaneously, but when we travel we orchestrate child care, pick-ups, drop offs, and more with such efficiency we make the CIA look lame.
I don’t have to travel too often, but when I do, you can bet there are going to be multiple spreadsheets involved. Here is how it is done.

Trump vs Hilary: I Gave it a Fair Chance

Did you watch the debate last night? I listened in while I caught up on work.

I have never thought Trump was a viable candidate for president. In fact, I've been asking my husband for months, when will the gig be up? When will he stand up and say, just joking, you Americans are so stupid! But he's yet to do that. Maybe it is for real...

I heard a lot of crap last night during that debate and I'm not impressed. The one thing that came out of the debate was yes, I still think Trump is a completely ridiculous option for president.

A president should be dignified, gracious, and mature. They should be a true role model and thoughtful leader. They should be able show compassion, consideration, and have manners. They are representing the USA. I wouldn't want the USA to be represented by Trump.

The whole time I was listening, I kept thinking to myself, give him the benefit of the doubt. It's my one fault - I'm always too liberal. Maybe he is a good fit? Maybe I was wrong? Maybe he has merits? Maybe I didn't give him a legitimate chance. However, I'll quote Trump when I say, "Wrong.".

He came out swinging. He didn't answer questions, he was rude, and he didn't sound like a mature, dignified adult. He sounded like an immature brat.

Hilary Clinton was a lady. She was full of grace yet strong. Looking at her and listening to her, she felt like a true leader. Someone I'd want my children to emulate. Does she have the best policies? I'm not sure, but does it matter? How many presidential hopefuls get into office and do exactly what they say? Does she have some issues in her past? Of course. Is the best fit for or country? I'm not certain. Is she a better choice than the Donald? Definitely.

A friend shared this article doing a fact checker on some of the things discussed. If you missed the debate, be sure to check it out as it's very interesting.

At the end of the day, if you want to vote someone who says this, below, I'm scared for our country. Think about it. What kind of world would we live in if our leader truly feels this way? What are we teaching our children.

First Grade Stories: Fired


Me on the way to school: Why don't you meet someone new today and make friends.

Lyla; I already know them all. I know everything about everyone! Like *boy name*'s favorite color is green because it can be light green, dark green, or medium green.

After school chatter:

Lyla: Oh, I forgot to tell you! I was playing in gym with *boy name* and I was the dog. And he said boyfriends always help their girlfriends out. So he helped me. (giggling)

Me: Oh dear, another boyfriend.

Lyla: Yeah, I have 3. You know them all. (listing out their names)

Me: What about *boy name*? Wasn't he your boyfriend yesterday?

Lyla: He's fired. And *girl name* is fired too because she told *boy name* I had a crush on him.

Me: (shakes head dreading the teenage years)
