Multitasking. This is a skill that you have to master in order to succeed in parenting. And by succeed, I mean not lose your ever lovin’ mind.
People always tell me that I seem so calm when I’m out with my kids. Bahahaha. My husband will tell you that I’m like a duck. Everything looks calm on top but underneath those legs are going a mile a minute.
I try to hold it together in public while in my mind I’m mentally thinking about who’s about to have the next meltdown, potty stops, and escape routes.
My friends invited me to take our kids to the movies today. Fact is, a one and a half hour long movie with 5 kids alone is way harder than a 4-hour football game alone. Or maybe it’s just that I have more practice at the latter.
I was fully prepared but knew I was in trouble when I busted out the sucker, a last resort for obvious sticky reasons, five minutes into the movie for my 10-month-old.
It’s not like I could just take her out because inevitably my 2-year-old would flip out and come crying after me.
By the end of the movie, my 10-month-old who insists on crawling and not sitting, was on a little disease infested two foot area by my feet, with her 10th sucker, trying to catch falling pieces of popcorn.
Don’t judge me. It was the lesser of two evils. Nothing a bath can’t solve. Why not just skip the movie? If you have that mind-set, you’ll spend your whole life at home.
This is just a mild example of stuff you thought you would never do as a parent. I’m not sure if I’m ready to divulge the gritty stuff. You tell me yours first.
Baking is something I like to do with my kids. Usually it’s just one or two kids helping me but for this dessert they ALL wanted to help.
This Peanut Butter Oreo Dessert (No-Bake) starts with a layer of Oreos, topped with a creamy peanut butter layer, chocolate pudding layer, and topped with more Oreos and peanut butter cups. Although this anything but a healthy dessert, for some reason it tastes really light and dreamy.
I’m not a huge fan of Cool Whip but desserts tend to last longer when it’s used. I’ve used both fresh whipped cream and Cool Whip this and fresh works just fine. It will last 2 days before the cream breaks down. This could easily be doubled in a 9×13 baking dish.

If you like the crunch of the Oreos on top, wait to add them right before serving. They do get soft if you put them on early.
