Goodies for you! Bathroom humor coloring pages

How often do you go to the bathroom as soon as you notice have to pee?

Right. Same here.

So we made these coloring pages for you. You can color them,  put them where you can see them, and give yourself permission to pause, and go pee, knowing that sisters from around the world are doing the same.

This is our gift to you, to celebrate the Mama’s Comfort Camp 3rd birthday on March 12 2015.
You’re welcome. Yes, we get it, bathroom humor for a 3rd birthday persent. Just about perfect.

Mama Guilt

This is a guest post by Mama’s Comfort Camp Den Mother Aryeal Jackson.   A few months ago I began to worry about my then 14 month old. His language skills didn’t seem to be on par with his brother (29 months). Yes I know that every mother worries about such things, scouring the internet,… Continue Reading

If you give a mom a headache

If you give a mom a headache, she’ll want some medicine. She won’t want to take it on an empty stomach, so she’ll have to make some dinner. Because she’s not feeling well, she’ll suggest making something really easy like pizza. When she realizes she’s out of frozen gluten free crusts, she’ll have to make… Continue Reading

The Mama’s Comfort Camp Mommy-festo

This is the “This I Believe” of the Mama’s Comfort Camp:  About Motherhood Motherhood is the hardest. Even if you climbed Mt. Everest, motherhood will challenge you more than the tallest peaks. The gap between expectations and reality is huge, and painful. Miraculously, unbelievably, (thankfully!) this is somehow all worth it. But why, oh why does mothering have to… Continue Reading

I didn’t even know I was doing it

Look, Arnebya is here! She is one of those writers who can be so funny, that they can get away with talking about the deepest truths in ways that bypass our resistances. Trough her blog I learned that we both navigate life with barely-eaters who live at the bottom of the growth chart, and when… Continue Reading
