April B.

April Brownlee is a professional fundraiser and freelance writer. She was born and raised in the Panhandle, holds a degree in mass communications and started her career in TV news. Married and mom to three kids age 9, 6 and 4 April likes to joke that in her "spare time" she gets to take a shower. But in all actuality, April is a book nerd, a wanna-be chef with absolutely no knife skills, a reality TV junkie, a follower of all things political, and a shop-a-holic. A fan of the "knowledge is power" mantra, April also likes to chat about two subjects that are very close to her--food allergies and children with special needs.

Mommy Blogger April B. – Building a Strong Family Foundation

I'm going to come clean about something I take a lot of flak for. I feel like, because my position on this is somewhat different from that of most, people are quick to insert their unwanted views or try and win me over to their way of thinking. But I probably feel more strongly about this one stance, than anything else. I don't feel the need to defend my position. But I do feel the need to explain it.

Mommy Blogger April B. – Ancay ouyay eakspay igpay atlinay?

"Ancay ouyay eakspay igpay atlinay?" I asked my kids one morning this week after catching the tail end of a Phinneas and Ferb episode where they make up their own version of pig latin called "Ferb Latin." It gave me an idea...wouldn't it be hysterical if I first freaked my kids out by speaking only pig latin to them and then pretending nothing unusual was happening... and then, wouldn't it be funny if I actually taught them to speak it?

Mommy Blogger April B. – Fly Swappers

We bought some new fly swappers this week. The flies are maddening right now. Thus, the need for additional fly swappers. Seems my kids have a knack for swapping flies and they love to do it. More fly swappers were required to end the feuding over who gets to be the insect executioner.

Mommy Blogger April B. – Now I Understand Why My Parents Didn’t Buy Me the Fancy School Supplies

Now that August has arrived, it's back to back-to-school shopping. When I was a kid, it was all about having the coolest Trapper Keeper. The Trapper Keeper was the iPhone of the 80's preteen. It held folders and paper and it had a clipboard and you could even stuff photos inside the plastic cover. I vividly remember ogling the Lisa Frank designed Trapper Keepers and begging my mom to spend the $5 on one. I actually had this one.

Mommy Blogger April B. – Kids Love Chicken Nuggets. It’s, Like, a Law or Something.

So, this conversation happened this week:

Oldest Daughter: "I don't like chicken nuggets."
Me: "Yes, you do."
Oldest Daughter: "No, I don't."
Me: "Yes, you do. You've never once said you don't like them"
Oldest Daughter: "Yes, I have! I only like the other kind."

Mommy Blogger April B. – What a Difference a Laugh Can Make

It's been one of those weeks. I seem to have a lot of those weeks, lately. And, as I walked out of the house totally annoyed and overwhelmed and feeling pulled in 15 directions, I rolled my eyes, hearing the familiar tone signalling an incoming text. What now?! I glanced at my phone, saw this meme, stopped in my tracks, snorted and then laughed like a hyena.

Mommy Blogger April B. – Moons Over Milk

It seems like I've written this exact line 105 times. Boys are a whole 'nother animal.

After I wrote just two short weeks ago about raising a husband, it seems I've got a long road to go before my little man resembles a gentleman, or from the way things are going this week, even a human. My sweet little boy has a new afternoon teacher at his daycare center and, from what I can glean, he's really breaking her in.

Mommy Blogger April B. – Finding the Balance

You know it's bad when you haven't had time to get a haircut in seven months and you have to skip lunch to find the time to do it. Why is it when the going gets tough, we moms often stop taking care of ourselves to make more time to take care of everyone else? I mean, when you have to skip eating to do one little thing for yourself, that's about as oxymoronic as you can get.
