I'm just not Supermom anymore....

I think I’m just worn out with blogging. I’ve been around a long time and I think I have given all the advice that I know. You firs...


Dear Supermom Fans,

I'm so sorry I forgot to tape a Week in Review.  Last night my brother-in-law and two nieces were involved in a car wreck.  Everyone is okay but it messed with me emotionally.  I haven't felt well at all today.  I just know my blood pressure is high and I have a headache.

I managed to grocery shop and clean up my house.  I then stayed outside for the rest of the afternoon watching the kids play.  I hope I wore them out so that they go to bed early and perhaps sleep in.  Like 6:30 am.   Please, I'm not asking too much. 

I will try to be a better Supermom and post a video tomorrow.


Feel free to masturbate why don't you.

You can shut your mouth and wipe the drool from your chin.  Yes, I AM GOING THERE!!!!   Too many people think masturbation is something you don't talk about.  I think those people are wrong.  While planning to blog about this topic I, of course, did a search on the WWW.  Doing so I found this AWESOME site!!!!!!!! 

Scarleteen, Sex Ed for the Real World

I found a site that offers just the truths!  As a parent I want my kids to know all the facts and know when something is fiction.  Like, "NO it will not fall off if you don't TOUCH IT!!! " Know what I mean???

Teens don't want to know their parents are having sex much less ask them certain questions.  Handy dandy books are great for kids, I know this because I have bought a few.  I also know they have questions to ask and won't always feel comfortable asking a mom or dad all the time.  That website I mentioned earlier may be something you as a parent can bookmark for later.  Just a friendly tip.  Don't just give it to your teen to look themselves.  Talk about it first!!  Take a look yourself to make sure you agree with that is being said.  You know, responsible parent behavior. 

Okay, back to masturbation.  I think it's something to talk to your kids about.  It's important for them to know it's a natural thing.  It's nothing to be embarrassed about.  There's nothing wrong with giving yourself pleasure.  Girls need to know that they can make themselves feel good without a boy even being present.  Here's a great link from Scarleteen that you can even print out and put on your teens bed. 

Is Masturbation Okay?

Masturbation is not bad for you physically, sexually or emotionally -- unless it is something you simply do not WANT to be doing -- and can be, in fact, quite good for you. It's been almost twenty years since the American Medical Association declared masturbation a normal and healthy sexual activity, and even then, it was long overdue.


So, Supermom says, "Go forth and Masturbate!" 

Let's get this party started and comment with your thoughts about teaching kids all about Masturbation and knowing they can make themselves feel awesome all on their own.  No second party needed. 

Poor Superdad. No one would want to be in his shoes...

...to have me as a wife.  He never knows what to expect from me.  My mind is constantly on the GO!!  I cannot sit still.  Literally my mind will not shut the F* up!  Really.  That's why I am on a medication for anxiety.  I am a  LIVE wire!!!!!  Superdad is not a live wire.  He's the procrastinator with many unfinished projects.  Sorry honey, but it's true.

So, back to having me as a wife.  He really doesn't know what to expect from me.  Like this morning I call him at work inquiring if we have a staple gun.  We don't.  How about push pins?  We did!  He told me where to find them on his work bench.  I was a happy little camper.  Skipping around in my slippers with the push pins, rubber mallet and the phone to my ear. 

The project at hand was artwork.  Our hallway is lined with artwork.  I use the back of the doors in the house instead of the walls. BEFORE:

Door Artwork Project

Pretty dull if you ask me!  I can do better than that!!! 

I did.

I took some fabric that my friend Renee gave me and fixed it to the top of the door.  I then used the push pins around the edge of both sides to hold yarn.  I wrapped yarn around the push pins to make a place to place the artwork. 

Door Artwork Project

No more tacky tape.  Artwork is on display and easy to change out!!!!

I was going to do the other two closet doors in the hallway but I don't have enough push pins.  Bummer!!!

All done without a staple gun! 

A Day in My Life ~ April 29, 2010

Twenty-five days ago I spent hours planting a few things outside with the babies.  I am so impressed with their growth I took some after photos and paired them with the before ones.  The tomato plant just blows my mind.

Let's talk about Sex, shall we?

I've had sex on the brain ever since I read that article yesterday.  I loved reading the comments from my blog post!  It was awesome to hear your opinions on the subject.  I think we were all in agreement about having sex because we were hot and bothered not because we made a promise to our spouse.  Right?

This morning I did a Google search and found this awesome Sex Survey by Prevention.com.  I am going to share some of the slides with you!  The ones I found interesting.

How often do you have sex?
More than one-third of Prevention.com users think they have more sex than their peers, and they’re right. Over 40% said they have sex more than twice a week. According to research from the Kinsey Institute, 30- to 39-year-olds have sex an average of 1.65 times a week; 40- to 49-year-olds an average of 1.3 times a week.

What are you main reasons for not wanting sex?

If you could, would you have sex every day?

So, let's do our own Supermom Sex Survey.  I want to hear from my readers.  The women and men that read this blog.  I'll post the link at the top of my blog for you to answer the questions.  If you have a question you want me to add to the survey feel free to email me at iheartsupermom (at) aol (dot) com and I will post it anonymously for you. 

So, let's talk about sex. 

Supermom's Sex Survey ~ Let's Talk About Sex!
Click here to take survey

Have sex every single day for a month?

What drugs are you smoking????  That would be the question I would ask the person doing the promising.  I know it was mine when I read this article about this woman giving her husband sex every day for a month for his birthday.  Don't even get me started on the woman who wrote the book about promising her husband sex every day for a year! 

Don't get me wrong.  I love sex.  I love sex with Superdad.  Sex is good.  But I'm not going to put myself in a situation to make love like it's a chore or something I have to do so I don't break a promise.  If you read the story I linked above you will find out that some days it was a chore and they just went through the motions.  I don't want sex that way.  I want sex to be passionate and something we both want at the same time.

I know that I could put more of an effort into having more sex with Superdad.  Sure, I could make more time.  I just know after taking care of kids all day, cooking, cleaning and such when I go to bed all I think about is sleep.  I'm guilty of not making more time for sex with Superdad..

Also, the couple above didn't have children so they were able to be more free about it.  It's different when there are little people wandering around the house.  Having a child walk in during foreplay is a mood killer!  I also think they have a special radar when it comes to parents having alone time together.  I know that we've tried to sneak to our bedroom and a few minutes later become the center of attention with the kids. 

Anyway, I just don't think you should make these sorts of promises.  Giving your husband sex every day for a month or a year.  I think if you want sex then have sex.  Don't take the fun out of it by making it a chore.  You can promise each other to make more time for each other but you don't have to stipulate that sex has to be involved. 

Okay, let's talk about this!  I'm ready for the comments.

Let's have another baby, baby.

Even as a young girl I wanted to have lots of babies and just be a Mom.  I also wanted to be a teacher and join the Navy but changed my mind.  My motherly instinct must have come from helping raise my little sister.  I was eight years old when she came along.  I guess I was happy about having a sister, at first.  I changed my mind when she started messing up my things and painting my pet cat with fingernail polish.  Poor Snowball. 

I am very proud to be the mother of four children.  Four wonderful children.  Four happy children.  They are awesome.  Everyone should have a couple of kids, or four.  Kids are pretty cool. 

Here lately I've been toying with the idea of having another baby.  Not right now but I don't want the door shut for forever.  I will be 36 next month and wonder when my time of having babies will be up.  I remember being a young girl and excited that when my period came I would be able to have children one day.  I was blessed with four.  Now, I'm seeing all that behind me as I enter my late 30's.  My period came and made me able to have children. One day it will be gone and I will be unable to have children.  Kind of sad. 

My best friend Mary Jane is pregnant with her first child.  She will be 30 this June.  I think of her enjoying all the firsts!!!!! that I've gotten to enjoy four times!!!  It never gets old!  Otherwise I wouldn't be trying to talk Superdad into having another baby.

Am I being selfish for wanting another baby since I have four healthy children??  I don't care if I am.  I want another baby and I know I would be disappointed if I don't have another one.

I hope that my future holds another lil baby to love and to have my family love.  We are a special group of people with lots of love to share.

Yes, I am all that and a bag of chips.

This morning I read some where that Supermoms don't exist.  Well, they are wrong!!  I'm here!  ~tapping screen~  Is this thing on?  Can you see me?  Able to read me?  I'm here to let you know that Supermoms do exist!  I have the cape to prove it. 

This weekend was packed full of fun!  With President Obama and The First Lady in town for a weekend getaway the town as all abuzz!  There was a Twitter hashtag just for the occasion that I was hooked on!  I was like everyone else wondering where they were eating, where they were touring and just what they we doing in my lovely town.  I will admit I am glad they left yesterday because they stayed near my house and the "AIR TRAFFIC" was driving me bonkers.  All the fighter jets making their rounds 24 hours a day was beginning to wear on my nerves.  The constant "shhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm" was annoying.  Ha ha! 

Saturday we celebrated B2 turning 12 and Baby M turning 2 at The Health Adventure.  It was loads of fun!!!!!  Here are a few random pics!

I made two snake cakes and a butterfly.


Here's Baby M blowing her candles out, B2 blowing out his and then us together.

bday collage

I want to share this awesome photo I snapped with  my Blackberry when we were leaving Pack Place.  I loved the butterflies.

Pack Place

We had a wonderful time with our family and friends.  It was nice hanging out with B2's rambunctious friends as well.  Boys will be boys I suppose. 

Today, I'm cutting more quilt squares for the quilt I started for myself.  I have a cool concept and cannot wait to set it in motion. 

I leave you with this, "Have you hugged your Supermom today?"

The President and First Lady are in Asheville, North Carolina.

Here's a video of their motorcade going up Kimberly heading to the Grove Park Inn.

Video taken by Superdad. 

Week in Review.

Supermom is baking cupcakes and a cake for the joint birthday bash tomorrow at The Health Adventure.

I've had a migraine for two days thanks to Superdads ancient cologne.

Kids running up and down the hall.

I'm jamming out to Zero 7, you can hear it in the video.

The President and First Lady will be in my wonderful town after noon for the weekend.

Asheville Loves Obama and Michelle!

Asheville HEARTS President Obama and Michelle.

Our town is all abuzz with the President and First Lady arriving today for a weekend getaway!  Heck, I'm even cleaning house myself!!!!!  Obama has been here before and really enjoyed his time here!!!  Of course he would!  It is Asheville!  I'm proud to be a Native to these parts!

I live in the area of the Grove Park Inn which happens to be where they are staying so yesterday there was lots of air traffic patrolling the area.  I hear that Air Force One will be landing at our airport after lunch today!!!!  HOW EXCITING!!!! 

We love you Obama!!!  I hope you find your cardboard cutout and pose for a picture while you are here!!!!!!! 

My friend Autumn LOVES OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!

Please enjoy your stay!!!!!!

Great Video about Cupcakes for Cures

"French Broad Chocolate lounge/Cupcakes for a Cure" from Aaron Morrell on Vimeo.

You can see Lil O and myself at 6:17.  Lil O was picking out a cupcake for herself.  Enjoy!

Yes, your parents do have sex. With each other. Sometimes.

Let me explain the basket situation before I tell you the funny part.

The closet in our bathroom is organized by baskets.  There's a medicine basket, Superdad has a basket, I have a basket and Lil O has a basket.  All nice and neat.  Awhile back Superdad has some cologne spillage in his basket.  HE DOESN'T EVEN WEAR COLOGNE!!  It was a 25 year old bottle of cologne that he has hung onto.  He hangs onto everything!!!  So, with that spillage came the most excruciating physically sick migraine in my life.  I was sick for days.  I had to take everything out of his basket and rip out the lining.  It was awful.  I threw away all the cologne in that basket of his. 

So, yesterday I was tidying up the closet.  I touched his basket.  Whatever I did wafted that awful scent again!!!!  At first I wasn't sure where the awful smell was coming from.  Then it HIT ME LIKE A TON OF BRICKS!!!  It was on my clothes and my hands from picking up the basket.  I am assuming the cologne had soaked into the basket.

Again I became physically ill.  It was awful.  I had to take lots of my medication to be able to see straight.  I was unable to find someone to get teenage daughter for me so I had to leave the house, bad mistake.  There's a store right beside my house that has everything so I stopped by there and picked up two baskets.  Then I ended up calling Superdad to collect B2 from school.  I barely made it to the high school to get teen and make it home. 

Here's the funny part.

H was helping me fumigate the bathroom.  We were taking everything out of Superdad's basket so we could throw it away.  H was all, "Thanks A LOT MOM!" when she sees condoms in the basket.  "I am married, an adult and I do have sex."  I tell her.  Then she proceeds to find a pair of tweezers to pick up the condoms to take them out of the basket!  I was laughing through the tears of pain.  It was comical watching her pick condoms up with tweezers!!!!  I bet she didn't pick up the condom I found in her room with a pair of tweezers!!!  Now did she??????

I was in bed about 15 hours yesterday.  My head is still so-so.  I just made a pot of coffee and took more meds.  I hope today is better than yesterday.  At least I don't have to worry about that cologne anymore.  The basket has been thrown away!!!!!

I bet there's a book for that.

Well, Lil O picked out her books at the library all alone this time. It has been interesting to say the least.

Right now we are explaining why the kitty is crying. Her parents don't love each other and mommy cheated with the mailman and they are divorcing. Baby M is obsessed with the crying kitty.

So, we have one about divorce.

The other is about the daddy getting cancer and dying. Seriously.

If you want to break anything to your kids just visit the local library's kid section.

Happy 12th Birthday to my Son B2.


Today my handsome turns 12!  This time 12 years ago I had a 9 pounds 13 ounces bouncing baby boy. 

He has brought me so much joy over his lifetime!  I hope he has a perfect birthday today!!!!! 

No wonder teens are so obsessed with sex.

Yesterday I was driving to the grocery store to buy birthday supplies and cake making goodies listening to a radio station that I enjoy.  It plays the current top 40 kind of music.  Music that my teenage daughter listens to. 

Then I hear this song that totally makes my jaw drop and I think I may have felt my heart skip a beat!!!!!!

Here, let me type out a bit of the song by Rihannah ~ Rude Boy.
Tonight I'ma let you be the captain
Tonight I'ma let you do your thing, yeah
Tonight I'ma let you be a rider
Giddy-up, giddy-up, giddy-up babe
Tonight I'ma let it be fire
Tonight I'ma let you take me higher
Tonight, baby, we could get it on, yeah, we could get it on, yeah 


I like the way you touch me there
I like the way you pull my hair
Babe, if I don't feel it I ain't faking, no, no
I like when you tell me 'kiss you there'
I like when you tell me 'move it there'
So giddy-up; time to get it up: you say you a rude boy: show me what you got now
Come here right now

The name of the CD is Rated R and has the "explicit lyrics" sicker ON IT but it was being played on the RADIO STATION!!!!  A radio station that the kids listen to. 

I really just shook my head in disbelief.  When you are a responsible adult I don't care what music you listen to but when you are a very impressionable teen then you don't need to listen to that CRAP!  Seriously!  These are the music stars that our children want to be like.  They have posters of them in their bedrooms.  They dress like them.  They idolize them.  They think the music star can do no wrong.

How can I compete with that??

How can I teach them about sex and drugs when the people that they idolize tell them it's okay?  It's impossible to shelter our kids from everything going on in the world.  The best we can do is teach them right from wrong at home and hope that in a situation that they will make the right decision.

I just really think that the pop stars need to think about how their music may be understood by an impressionable teenager.  Let parents teach their kids about sex and drugs.  Instead they glorify it!  Make it sound so awesomely hip and cool.  That everyone's doing it.  Of course they are!  It's how society is making it a norm. 

Out of curiosity I Googled "teenage pregnancy rate".

Are you ready for what I found?  I was NOT!

The United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the industrialized world. The Center for Disease control says that one-third of girls get pregnant before the age of 20. Teenpregnancy.org, a site managed by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, states that there are "750,000 teen pregnancies annually. Eight in ten of these pregnancies are unintended and 81 percent are to unmarried teens."

750,000 teen pregnancies ANNUALLY.  750,000! ! !
I don't even know what else to type now. 

These are the musical pop stars that our kids listen to and idolize.

Week in Review.

I'd like to thank....

my family for making these blog awards possible.

If it weren't for my son wiping boogers on the wall, hormonal teenager squeezing into jeans too small for her, Lil O eating grape jelly on her waffles and Baby M loving her Ninny and Superdad emailing me boob pictures then I wouldn't have you awesome FANS!!!

So, these awards are for you too!

Mommy meets Baby M.

Mommy meets baby.

We've already opened presents this morning.  She's happily playing with her talking Dora house as I type this.  There are Dora puzzle pieces all over the floor and markers for her Dora coloring book everywhere.  I bet you cannot guess what the "theme" was for her gifts.  She's a DORA FREAK!!!!!  That girls a Dora FREAK!!!

I will post some pictures later of the birthday girl not in her birthday suit though.  I will wrangle some clothes onto her some how!!!!!!!  She's turned into a streaker BTW!!!  ~shaking head~

I'm back on my cooking challenge!!  Who's your Supermom??!??!?!

Yesterday we enjoyed Bean Burgers, mac & cheese and steamed broccoli.  For dessert I sliced and toasted some pumpkin bread with butter.

Today it's looking like pancakes and bacon for dinner.  I can fry up some eggs as well.  WOOT WOOT!!! 

Tomorrow I will have to break down and hit the grocery store though because I've never seen the cabinets and fridge so BARE!!!!!!  Now would be a good time for me to clean them out.  Hmmmm.....

Let me tell you about my night!!!!!!!!! MAY BE NSFW!!!

After being used a a human pacifier night before last I knew that I had to come up with plan B.  So, last night I decided to NOT give Baby M her ninny during the night. 

It was AWFUL!!!

Seriously, she screamed at the top of her lungs, "I WANT NINNY!!!!!" while she was kicking the bed and swinging her arms.  I was strong though and didn't cave in every time she went for my boob.  I talked and offered to rub her back and eventually she would go back to sleep.  On her own.  Without using my boob as her pacifier.

Then LOOK what Superdad emailed me this morning:

Happy vs Sad

NO, those aren't my breasts.  Not even close to my breasts.  I emailed him back TWO WORDS.


His emailed back, "After your night last night I knew it would make you laugh."

Times like this I wish Baby M would take a pacifier!!!!!!

Superdad said he's sleeping on the couch until this little project is complete.

I'm such a failure!

I didn't make the salmon burgers as planned.

I laid down with the baby at 4pm thinking once she was asleep I'd get up and cook.

I fell asleep.

No one woke me up!!

I woke up around 6 with drool on my arm.

Thankfully Pizza Hut has the 10.00 pizzas. I ordered two for delivery.

Tomorrow I will make the salmon burgers or something completely different.

Day Two

I've been cooking this morning!!!  I even have dinner already planned out. 

Breakfast ~ The babies had oatmeal.

Lunch ~ Lucky leftovers with some pasta I made.

Dinner ~ I will be making salmon burgers.  I made the buns this morning.  I'll make some mac & cheese and steam some broccoli to go with the meal.

This morning I made two loaves of white bread and eight hamburger buns.  I also made 12 pumpkin muffins and 2 loaves of pumpkin bread.  The loaves have assorted nuts in them and the muffins do not.  The babies don't do nuts.  That way everyone can have muffins/bread for a quick breakfast or snack!   (I didn't have enough sugar for the pumpkin bread and muffins so I used sweetened coconut flakes instead.  IT WORKED AWESOMELY!!!)

I wonder what I will create tomorrow to feed the family?

Baking bread and muffins.

Baking bread and muffins.

Baking bread and muffins.

Two blog posts in a single day! WOW!! I must love you guys!

I am going to try something again!  The first time I failed!!!  I WILL NOT THIS TIME!!!!

I've tried to challenge myself to cook for a week with only the things in the house.  It didn't work out.  I'm not sure why.  So, today I would have usually made a small list at hit the grocery but after looking through my cabinets I thought to myself CHALLENGE TIME!!!!!!

So, this week, we might can make it until Friday, I will cook with what we have in the house already! 

For dinner tonight I fixed a Potato Hash.  I chopped up an assortment of potatoes, including a sweet one, into very tiny cubes.  Added equally small cubed garlic and onions.  Add lots of salt, pepper and basil!!!  Pour on the olive oil and bake until done.  Stir a couple of times while cooking. 

I took some fresh asparagus and threw them in my skillet with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.  Cooked until done.  BUT NOT MUSHY!!

I then fried some eggs and scrambled some eggs for everyone.

To finish the meal off I took some tortilla shells and sprinkled them with butter, cumin, garlic and some other Indian red spice mixture that's in my kitchen and then toasted. 

The meal was YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!  OHMYGOODNESS!!  I will be adding this to the recipe rotation! 

Check back tomorrow to see what I've come up with.

How many letters are in the alphabet?

I'm sure my babies will be asking me this soon enough.  Then they will realize that we don't have all 26 magnetic letters on the fridge.  Should I just mess with them and tell them 20?  You know, be real adamant about there only being 20 and whoever says there are 26 must be cRaZy?!??!  Hmmmm.... I will have to think about this.

Where are the other letters you ask???

Well, today I know I vacuum up a few that were beside the fridge.  I heard the clanging in the vacuum canister.  Maybe 3-4 were sucked up.  No, I didn't fish them out.  Eweeee, have you seen the stuff I empty from the canister???  No way was I going to pilfer though dust and teenage daughters hair to find the missing letters in the alphabet.  NO FREAKING WAY!!!!! 

Since there were already missing letters I am sure they won't even notice the ones I vacuumed up today.  There are only 20 letters in the alphabet!  That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I'm feeling much better today!  Thanks for all the well wishes!!  You guys are awesome.  I want to tell you that Cupcakes for Cures raised over $6000.00 for the American Cancer Society Saturday at the Grove Park Inn.  ~CLAPPING~  I think that is awesome! ! ! !

It just touched my heart yesterday when Phil Mickelson won the Masters.  To learn his mom and wife were both diagnosed with breast cancer in the past year just makes me sad.  To see his pretty blond haired wife in his embrace at the end was just amazing!  WTG PHIL!!! You deserve all this glory!!!! 

Something to think about:

My peeps say that Supermom has stalkers.  Personally I just call them dedicated fans!

Oh, well. Whatever.

It's Sunday.  Tomorrow will be Monday just in case you didn't already know this.  Yesterday was supposed to be a day filled with fun and laughter!  Instead it was filled with an awful migraine.  One that made me physically sick. 

We were at the Grove Park Inn for the Cupcakes for Cures for about 3 hours so it was very hard on me.  I just wanted to cry.  I came home popped two migraine meds and took a very hot bath.  Then I crawled into bed and just cried.  It was awful.  I eventually was taken into a med induced sleep and woke up feeling a bit better.  I took more medicine and when that kicked in I went to bed.  Today I'm still taking my meds but feeling much better.

I've been outside cleaning out flower beds and getting leaves up.  It's nice to see the yard looking better!!  Superdad built another frame for a raised garden bed.  He has one more BIG one to build then we will be set!  All the things I planted last week are doing swell.  Even with the cold weather and the threat of frost.  No, I haven't been covering them up. 

My desk is a mess.  I have reviews to do.  A giveaway to mail.  Things to sort.  Hopefully this week I can get my act together!  :)

I will leave you with a few random pictures from yesterday:
