Allow Me To {Re}Introduce Myself

7 Mar

Hi there!

Man has it been a long time since I’ve been here. So much has happened and so much has changed. Before I get to any of that, I’d like to take this opportunity to reintroduce myself.

 Reintroduce myself

My name is Mychal, I am the wife to one hardworking man, the mother of two insane sons and the mother of Cooper, also known as the Yorkshire Terrorist. In case that’s not enough, I am also a backyard chicken farmer, a funeral home employee, a Starbucks addict and a 90’s alt and grunge fan. Oh and I can’t forget to add lover of Prosecco and fluent in sarcasm. 

I share Mommyland with my little menagerie on The Hill in southeastern Pennsylvania. 

What will you find here? 

A little bit of this and a little bit of that. Stories of life raising boys and chickens. Crazy shit that Cooper does. Cool products and services I love and just have to share. I’ll tell you how I’m adjusting to life as a full time working mom after twelve years at home. I’m fairly new to Weight Watchers so I might even share my progress as I work towards a healthier me. Since I was last here, I’ve been diagnosed with High Functioning Anxiety Disorder, don’t be surprised if you hear about that too. 

If there’s something you want to hear about or a question you’d like me to answer, please reach out. The goal of this blog has always been to share my story and let others know they are not alone. 

I hope you’re as excited as I am to see what’s next from My Life In Mommyland!


The Top Ten Things I Shouldn’t Have To Say To My Kids (But Still Do)

25 May

In no particular order here are things that I actually say to my boys on a fairly regular basis.

Things I shouldn't have to say

Don’t let these sweet faces fool you, I have to say these all the time. Boys are GROSS!

  1. Don’t pull the cat’s fur out. She’s getting older and she’s not a big fan of that. 
  2. Don’t eat your toenails. Ya like that one don’t you?
  3. Did you remember to wipe your butt? I wonder when I’ll get to stop doing the secondary “clean up”?
  4. Get out of the litter box. Totally gross! I don’t understand the draw to where the cat poops. 
  5. Close your mouth when you kiss me. How does my three year old even know about tongue?
  6. Get your dirty socks of the kitchen table. Boys are so disgusting.
  7. Don’t lick: Why oh why do they insist upon upon tasting everything? 
    1. That sign
    2. The windows
    3. The cat
    4. Your brother
    5. The wall
    6. That pole
  8. Make sure you rinse the shampoo out. One would think that after six years we’d have that bathing thing down pat. 
  9. Get that wire off from around your neck. Seriously? SERIOUSLY?
  10. Stop playing with your penis. That obsession starts young doesn’t it?

What are some of the things you never thought you’d have to say to your kids that you now find yourself saying almost daily?
