A fun weekend


Since moving to the Baton Rouge area over seven years ago, this past weekend was the first time I had went out exploring. Sean and I went out with some old friends, hit up The 13th Gate haunted house, stopped by Schlitz & Giggles for pizza and beer, then hoped around to a few different downtown bars.

The kids spent the night a Sean’s parents house. The idea of not having to wake up the next morning was a treat to us. I took full advantage of being kid-free for the better part of this past weekend. I probably drank a little too much and stayed out a little too late, but who cares?! We had a blast.

Sunday was spent recovering on the couch. First, I watched Swingers, then When Harry Met Sally.

I was happy once the kids came home. Sean and I missed them. I may or may not have smelt their pillows before going to bed Saturday night. My kids are my world. I complain about them when I feel overworked and tired. Once they are gone though I miss them right away. Raise your hand if this also happens to you. Knew I wasn’t the only one. I get what I want then realize it’s not what I want. Hindsight is 20/20.

Remembering to count my blessings

Remembering to count my blessings can sometimes be over shadowed by everything not going right in my life. As I sit here watching cartoons with Sean boy I’m reminded of my many blessings. I’m home with my youngest, playing trains, watching a little TV, coloring, and sneaking bits of chocolate, together we are enjoyed the morning. I’m blessed to be able to spend quality time with my little guy. I’m also blessed that I get a little time to myself once he goes down for his early afternoon nap. Sometimes I just sit on the couch, TV off, and relax. Doing nothing for a few minutes prepares me for the rest of my day.

Big sister is at school and will be staying over for tutoring. I’m grateful that we can afford to send her to a private school and her after school tutoring, twice a week is a blessing as well. I’m blessed and sometimes it’s hard for me to see it. Just found out that the school Jasmine goes to will slowly be introducing Jr. High classes over the next three years. By the time Jasmine gets to 6th grade Amite Christian Academy will be a full-fledged Elementary and Jr. High, we are excited about that.


My hard working husband is at work trying to make a living to support us. I’m blessed to be married to such an amazing man, and he’s just as blessed to have me in his life.

It does get crazy around here, the little one loves to get into mischief, he reminds me of Dennis the Menace. Everything I own has little flaws to it thanks to him, but I can’t be mad at him, he’s a kid, and that’s what kids do.

Despite all the sleepless nights, battles with homework, early mornings, a laundry pile that never gets smaller, and a constant battle with the dishes, I wouldn’t change a bit of it. This is my life, and I’m so blessed.

It’s easy to look at all the bad, it’s more productive to focus on all the blessings.

Day after day…


Hour after hour, day after day, life is just slipping away, and it’s time to have some fun. I’m talking real fun, you know the type. The cut loose kind of fun where you leave your iPhone and watch at home, kick off your shoes and just a good time. I don’t think I’ve had […]

It’s been a little over a year since I started this blog. I was at Niche Mommy Conference last year in New Orleans and was inspired to share more about myself. I wasn’t really inspired to share about me and my family on my main blog, Fabulous Mom Blog, so, Cleverness of Tiffany was born. For the […]
