Does it never cease to amaze any other mamas out there what we will do?

I don't know about you guys but since I have become a mama I do more stuff that I never ever would have thought myself to be doing?

I stick my hands in toilets to scrub them after a sick baby. I wipe noses and heinies more often than I thought possible. I ask questions like..."What in the world made you think sticking your brother in the closet was funny?" "Hudson do you understand why we don't put gum on mama's sweater now?" I find playdoh in my shoes. Blocks in my pillowcases.

The job I love most... being the hero! Cause that is all fun and reaps the bestest hugs and kisses ever.

For Hudson being the adorable two year old that he is....monsters are waging a war in our home every single night. Did you know that monsters in our house only come out after dinner when mama is cleaning it up? Did you also know that monsters don't go away anymore when Daddy comes home. This is a very sad thing now... for Daddy. Mama is now the hero! (Sorry Daddio your out and I am IN!)

I have a magical can of "Monster Spray". It is pretty awesome stuff. I am going to give the recipe to all of you monster fighting mama's right now.
- 1 spray bottle
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup yummy smelling essential oils
- aka spray bottle filled with febreeze

All you have to do is walk around the house spraying for monsters. Don't forget the closets and under the bathroom sinks! Once house smells delicious has been ridded of the evil monsters gather small handsome boy (or for those of you with girls) and be rewarded with hugs and kisses of awesomeness!

Happy Monster Hunting Mama's!!!!

Ah, I'm laughing out loud right now!! You Rock Shay! Way to be the hero of your family. I think moms definitely need some of the glory since usually we get stuck with the "yuck" jobs while daddies get to have all the "fun" jobs. :) Good stuff!

I love the monster spray!! I'll have to remember that for Evalyn when she starts the monster phase. :)
