Keep Momming

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Shire. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

The relationship that exists between mothers and daughters is unlike any other. It has many unique moments, memories, and yes, even challenges along the way. The relationship dynamic can be even trickier when your daughter is in those tween-age years. What can be even more difficult is when some people dismiss certain behaviors as “typical tween girl behavior” when those behaviors can be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention- Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.

I’m proud to be joining forces with Shire, CHADD and Holly Robinson Peete to announce the launch of keep momming, a new public service initiative geared towards the moms of tween girls to raise awareness of ADHD.

The campaign is anchored within a new digital hub, KeepMomming.com, where you’ll find tips, tools and other go-to resources for moms, including a checklist to help recognize the symptoms of ADHD – inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity – and then encourages moms to talk to their daughter’s doctor. The keep momming initiative can help moms learn about ADHD and provide ideas on how to spark a conversation and stay connected with their tween.

My Ten Guilty Pleasures #GuiltyPleasures

We all have them. Guilty Pleasures. Don’t have any clue what I am talking about? A guilty pleasure is something one enjoys and considers pleasurable despite feeling guilt for enjoying it. Yes, I have a ton and a majority is a secret! Hence GUILTY PLEASURE. But I am going to brave the scrutiny and list my ten guilty pleasures!

  1. Bingo Blitz. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy playing this little game on Facebook. I will turn down the volume so nobody can hear the game because if they knew how long I will sit and play Bingo Blitz they would think I have some serious problems. I have passed a couple hours playing this game!
  2. Keeping up with the Kardashians. I can’t get enough of them. I have seen every single episode. I know sad, but I find them very entertaining. Want to know who my favorite one is? Kourtney. Want to know what I also do? I will look over all the different “entertainment” magazines and look at all the stories about them and see if any matches up with the reality T.V. show.
  3. I love watching The Walking Dead. Okay, I don’t care if this is a guilty pleasure. I enjoy every single second of The Walking Dead. I will stalk their Facebook to find out any kind of new news about this show! Who is a Walking Dead fan?!
  4. Sleeping in. I absolutely love having the chance to sleep in until 10-11. This does not happen very often (usually on the weekends, when I am off work and the kids are at their Dad’s house). It just feels so good to lie in bed and not have to worry about having to get up to take care of any kids or turn off the alarm clock.

  1. Drama on Facebook. Even though I hate being in any sort of drama in any part of my life, I find enjoyment when I find some on Facebook. I can just sit back and watch the craziness happen.
  2. Watching love song clips of my favorite T.V. shows/movies on YouTube. You know the fan made videos that have a love song and features different scenes of the couple throughout the video. My all time favorite videos to watch like this are of Chuck and Blair from Gossip Girl. I am still sad that this show is over. Boo hoo! I miss watching my Chuck and Blair.
  3. I love going to yard sales and thrift store. I absolutely love finding a good deal! It makes me so giddy that it is yard sale season!
  4. I get a kick out of being a smartass. You know the feeling you get when somebody is being a total pain in the butt and you just show how much of your wit you can use? I do this all the time with my soon to be ex and the home wrecker. I LOVE the feeling I get when I come back with a smartass remark and know he can’t beat it. I know, I am bad.
  5. I hate to admit this one. But I love hogging all the blankets at night. I am so comfortable if I have the majority of the blankets. Don’t ask me why? I have no clue and I am sure my wonderful loving boyfriend hates this guilty pleasure of mine.
  6. Couponing. I love using coupons and saving a ton of money! Even though, I had to cut back on couponing over the past year, I still love it! I am hoping to get more time to start focusing on couponing again. With all the changes in my life this past year, it is hard to find the time to REALLY start couponing like I use to.

So, there you go, 10 of my guilty pleasures. Now sound off in the comments! What are some of YOUR guilty pleasures?

When One Door Closes

I have always heard when one door closes another door opens. When I think about this, I am not sure if I really believed in this. But after my life changed dramatically at the end of February, I am a firm believer. Things really do happen for a reason. When I first found out about my husband of 8 years having an affair, I thought my world was ending. I did not know what I was going to do to survive and take care of my three kids. I thought it was going to be impossible to raise 3 children on my own. I went into a spiral. I was depressed. I could not eat or sleep and was sick all day and night long. I was losing control of myself. I had people constantly calling me, sending me messages and just being at the house with me and nothing was helping. I knew that I was losing control.

Then one morning I woke up and didn’t want to lose control anymore. I went to my doctor and told him what was going on and how I was feeling. Of course, he told me that I was suffering from major depression along with severe anxiety. Since that day, I have felt so much better. It took about a month to get back on my feet and oh how things have changed.

Now I have always been a believer of Karma. I thought that I did something to deserve this pain. Was I this horrible person who deserved my husband cheating with my best friend? Was I a horrible mother? Was I ugly? Too fat? There were so many thoughts racing through my mind. But let me tell you something! It IS NOTHING THAT I HAVE DONE! I am not a horrible person, a horrible mother. I am NOT FAT OR UGLY! I am me. And I am proud to be me!

Now back to the one door closes another one opens. What I didn’t realize is that many doors opened that night when I found out. First one that opened was my independence. I don’t have to answer to a man that only cares about himself. I can focus on my kids and ME. Finally after all these years! The door to a job that I love opened! I am currently working at a chiropractor’s office and I LOVE IT! I love helping patients (without the use of surgery or drugs). I love marketing and being a chiropractor’s assistant! I like going in to work! I have never had that feeling before. Now, during my marriage, I went to school for Health Care Administration and never received any emotional support to use my degree to better our lives. He is definitely regretting that decision right now! I know that for a fact!

Love is another door that has opened. I thought I was in love with my husband. Sure, I loved him..at one point. For years, I just pushed my true feelings about him in the back of my mind and just forgot about them. I was comfortable. I was supposed to be in love with him. I married him! We were young when we got married. We were 18 and 19 when we got married And on top of that, I was 8 months pregnant! When I think back on it, I believed our parents beliefs pushed us to get married and we just stuck with each other all of these years. Now that I am out of this marriage, I have found a love that I didn’t know existed. I have a man that takes care of me and my children. A man that treats me like a queen. A man that acts like I am the only woman out there. My heart loves him so much I don’t even know how to act half of the time. I can’t wait to see him at the end of the day. I can’t wait to go to sleep next to him and him just hold me all night long. He listens to me. I never had that either. My soon to be EX husband, never truly listened to me. He always told me that he did not want to hear it. I was bitching too much. And all I ever wanted to do was express my feelings. I think that is why I started Jennifer’s Deals. To have a place where I could truly express my feelings.

Another door that has opened is happiness. I am happy. Very happy. Adam cheating was the best thing to ever happen to me. It opened up my happiness. I want to go out now and have fun. I don’t feel like I should sit in the house all day long and just play Mommy all the time. I am happy now because I make time for myself. I rarely did this when I was married. My focus was all about my children and him. I know..what a life?! I laugh all the time. My boyfriend constantly makes me laugh and I enjoy him. I can also enjoy my children more. I don’t feel worn out all the time. I feel like a human being that matters. And that is the best feeling.
