Have you had YOUR epidural today?

When I was in labor with my third child, a chilling, haunting memory came rushing back to me; fast and furious labor with my second child had resulted in missing the "epidural window". So I gave birth sans pain relief. Not the end of the world, but I was not going to let that happen again. So here I was with baby #3 and I yelled "Epidural NOW PLEASE!!". Little did I know at that time, that I would rather have an epidural everyday for the next 15 years.....

So here we are, two sisters and six kids later.......

We have spent the past several years of motherhood commisserating about the many nuances of being a mom and all that it entails. Some moments are sunshine streaming through the window casting a glowing silhouette around your precious sleeping bundle; others are you pulling Cheerios out of your hair, spilling coffee down your bathrobe, chasing a half naked toddler through the house, all while trying to hold a conversation with the customer service representative you've waited 45 minutes to talk to. We've been there...done that.

This is a blog meant to bring a fun spin on the daily trials, triumphs,tantrums, and slightly more painful moments that go along with being a mom. We are just two sisters that chat daily about why does it take the kids 10 minutes to brush their teeth only to find them having a "squirt" gun fight in the bathroom with medicine syringes? Or, why does my 7 year old insist on wearing camouflage everyday and making any inanimate object into a gun? And a favorite....am I the only one still training my 38 year old to pick up underwear off of the floor? So this is our attempt at creating a nationwide "sisterhood". A big group hug, if you will, stating "MOMS!! You are not alone! It is ok to get frustrated! It is ok to have a tantrum yourself!" And most importantly "It is ok to laugh!" And hopefully we can help you with that...have you had YOUR epidural today??
