Moms’ Musings: Hot Chocolate Caramel Mocha

Monday, March 29, 2010

I’m so excited for the launch of my Moms’ Musings series. As much as I’d like to think that my opinion is the only one people want to read, I realize that’s not the case, ahem, so just like Wives' Words, I’ve created Moms’ Musings to highlight other moms and share their crazy stories wonderful experiences with you.

Starting off the Moms’ Musings series is the fabulous Stesha Sims from Hot Chocolate Caramel Mocha. If you’ve ever read Stesha’s blog you’d know she’s the perfect mom to lead the way. She’s funny as hell – for real – and has seven kids under 12 including a set of twins. Need I say more?

Here’s Stesha’s Moms’ Musings:

Name: Stesha Sims

Children (names and ages):


Kyndle, 4; Brooklyn, 2; Roman, 5; Jordan, 6

Eden, 1

 and Elijah: 1

Occupation: Superhero (Do you see how many children I have?) I also own a website that will launch in a few months, so stay tuned!


What was your biggest fear about becoming a mother? Did it come true?
That my life would literally end. Did it come true? No. Like fine wine, my life only got better.

What’s the best thing about having a child(ren)?

What’s the craziest thing that’s happened to you since becoming a mom?
Oh, my. Let me see. There was the time I didn't do laundry, (for an entire week) and my oldest daughter had to wear a pair of her brother's underwear. No big deal....unless she screams out the car window whilst waiting in the parent pick-up line: "Hey guys! Look! I have on your underwear!"

What do you wish someone would have hipped you to about being mom?
It's okay to make mistakes. They will happen on a daily basis, but you have to keep moving.

What does your child do that makes you say, “now I understand why my mother ____!” (don't forget to fill in the blank)
They all scream Ma! Ma! Ma! all the time. Never Da! Da! Da! Now I understand why my mother practically lived in the laundry room. It wasn't because she liked to do laundry. It was to preserve her sanity!

What words of wisdom would you like to share with other moms?
Butt paste can be used as lip balm. I'm just saying.

Thanks, Stesha!

How ‘bout you? Got any musings you’d like to share? Moms everywhere want to know …

Thanks for having me as your 1st feature on the Moms' Musings series. I'm very honored, my friend. Also, I can't believe I have a picture posted of my bare face with no makeup. Sigh. You can't win them all.

Hugs and Mocha,

"Butt paste can be used as lip balm" - that's the kind of advice every parent needs.

@mrsnotouching I do my best to keep my readers updated on such things. It's my civic duty;)

Hugs and Mocha,

Wonderful feature. it was great to learn more about Stesha. I follow her on Twitter. She really is a superhero. I'm just discovering your blog too. I'm going to pry myself away from shoes every week to stop through too!

I love Stesha! She and I totally get the crazy fun of being a mom and you could not have picked a better picture. GORGEOUS! Such a great feature.

I didn't notice there was no makeup in that pic - stop kicking yourself. You look great. Awesome guest post!

I keep thinking of Bill Cosby's joke about his dad never being able to finish a sentence - I do that all the time.

Awesome interview! Stesha is the bomb!
