Trade in Your Cape for Underwear Erica Baumer Memphis MOms Blog

Trade in Your Cape for Underwear

Hey, Super Mom, how’s it going underneath your clothes? You heard me, I’m talking about your undies. We all (let’s hope) wear panties and bras, but there is more to underwear than those two staples. If you have never tried shapewear, you should seriously consider adding that secret weapon to your arsenal of undergarments. I […]

Go Ahead, Ask Me About Our Adoption

The other day my daughter and I were playing on the playground after school. A kid, around 8 or 9 if I had to guess, came up to us and asked. “Are you her Mom?” “Yep.” I said. “Is she adopted?” he whispered with extra emphasis on the word ‘adopted.’ “You don’t have to whisper […]

On Raising a Spitfire

  Spitfire [spit-fahyuh r] noun A person, especially a girl or woman, who is of fiery temper and easily provoked to outbursts.   Last month my husband was a guest writer and defined the word “plan.” Which is now ironic, because I started this blog post a few months ago and for various reasons had […]

How [Not] to Communicate with Your Daughter

We have all heard the cutesy names that mom-society has deemed fit for little kids with attitudes: terrible twos, threenager, fourmonal… Then children grow older and the names stop. An Instagram picture of an enraged child and #7YearOldMadAboutBeingGroundedFromtheiPad would not warrant the same reaction as a 3-year-old making the exact same same face with #threenager attached […]

The Talks Mom Never Had With Me

My husband and I have 4 children, 3 sons and 1 beautiful, spunky and overprotected daughter. Our boys are fabulous, but I’ll like them more when they learn their urine belongs in the toilet and not on the seat, the floor, and their underwear. Growing up with 3 younger sisters, I never had to worry about boys. […]

No, My Husband Doesn’t Need a Boy

There’s a question every mom or dad of two girls is asked at least once per week. Strangers, family, friends, doctors, co-workers, people you’ve just met, parents of friends, friends of parents, zoo workers, mail people, the little old lady at Target–you get the drift–they all seem to have one burning question. I was first […]
