Memos From Mommy

Got a case of the Mondays?  Diaper rash getting you down?  Well, turn that frown upside down. It’s time for the first of many Memos From Mommy!

The idea is simple. Every Monday I will post my own memo to Kendall, a short open letter of sorts, a simple passive aggressive reminder.  Then I encourage you to do the same.  

In the comments section below, leave your own MFM to your child/children.  They can be funny or sweet, just keep them short-ish, and use this as a chance to really get it all out.  Have fun with it!

Every Tuesday a comment will be chosen at random by the Random Number Generator and that commenter will win a sweet prize from the week’s MFM sponsor.  That’s it!

Now, let’s do this thing…







This week’s Memos From Mommy is brought to you by Three Peas Co.  In the world of baby clothes, unique and trendy outfits for boys are hard to find in the sea of All Star, dinosaurs and dump truck adorned rompers.  Enter the urban chic apparel for boys at Three Peas Co.  This adorable guitar onesie from their Spring/Summer 09 line is probably the coolest thing Kendall has ever rocked out in.  And moms of little girls, don’t worry!  They have AWESOME outfits and accessories for the little ladies, too, including fun and fluffy pettiskirts!

The winner of this week’s Memos From Mommy, drawn at random on Tuesday, will win a $25 credit for

Without further ado…












Now it’s your turn. Post away!

Memo: Because of the horrendous gastro-intestinal “prelude” to my labor with you, I am now beyond paranoid every time I have the runs that your sibling will be coming early. It is for this reason that I bought the wall primer today, not so that you could play percussion well beyond your bath time.
Additionally, although slightly disarming the first few times, your use of the phrase, “I NEED it!” with such appropriate inflection will not hurry any fetching, retrieving, or securing along. Sometimes my priority is driving safely over fishing Pablo off of the floor in the back of the car, and you are just going to have to accept that.
Self-sufficiency is the road to happiness. You can feel free to use that little pearl of wisdom when you misplace one of your binkies tonight at 2:37 a.m.. In fact, I encourage you.
