My World is Nucking Futs!

Once upon a time, believe it or not, I used to be an English teacher.  Now I’m a stay-at-home mom, and there are many days when I can hardly form a complete sentence.  You see, my twins have sucked nearly every last brain cell right outta my head.  I love ’em to pieces, but I have answered more unanswerable questions than one person should EVER have to answer.  That is why my husband encouraged me to start this little blog.

It has truly been my life preserver in the roaring sea of motherhood cause if I didn’t laugh my way through the madness of carpools and homework and playdates, I’d have a permanent room at the ol’ looney bin.  So come and giggle with me before my kids find me hiding here in the closet….

  3. So heeeeeere you are. Nice to see you can express yourself in more than 140 (though even in that constrained genre, you do stand out). Thanks for connecting and keeping my brain stimulated (even while your fearsome twosome sucks your brains out). Seize ya later, skater.

    Mom become what you describe due to the attention span of their children! Yes, I’ve been there done that…a stay at home mom trying to keep my career alive. The good news is it gets better…the bad news is it’ll get worse.

  5. Janet Hansen says:

    See…typo first sentence! MOMS become what you you describe….is what I meant.

  6. Hi, I just stumbled across your blog via Twitter (not really sure how I got here, but it was some combo of tweets), and have to tell you I love it!

    I am a brand new blogger and I started for much the same reason you did. We no longer speak in complete sentences around here and I was worried about my brain going completely mushy. I was an English major, and became – among other things – a corporate communications writer, a small business owner, and a community relations manager.

    Now I am a stay-at-home-mom. I don’t regret my decision at all, but I kind of miss having coherent, meaningful conversations.

    I’m looking forward to following your blog and tweets. Thanks for a great laugh today (particularly your post about children’s books – I HATE the David books, too!).

    So glad I ran across your blog. I’m a work-at-home mom of 4-year-old triplets (BGB). So nice to run into other multiple moms. Love your writing style and appreciate your sense of humor.

    • mama2point0 says:

      Thanks for taking the time to check me out! Wow — 4 year old triplets, huh?! I’m sure we could share many a battle story! I hope you come back again to read more of my nucking futty ramblings! 🙂

    Just found your site and am wondering where you’ve been all my life? No, that’s not a come-on…I just finally feel like I’ve found a soul sister. I’ll keep reading…you just keep keeping it honest.

    • mama2point0 says:

      Well, I’m so honored that you found me! I hope to keep you coming back for more of my craziness! Trust me, there’s never a dull moment in the Nucking Futs household! 😉

    You run a really fun blog, me and my colleagues had a blast reading it!

    Have you ever considered starting a .com running WordPress? It’s really easy and pretty cheap too, all you have to do is purchase a domain and then host the website. The WordPress installation is performed with a click of a button (we actually have a tutorial series coming up, keep in check). and we could help you with anything else.

    Please write to me if you’re interested, we have a special deal for you 2.0 moms :)) or you can always try a month of free testing!

  10. I am a current English teacher and I don’t know which is worse, teaching teenagers or raising kids…it’s a wash.

    So, a toast to adult interaction!

    loved this …great writing! I’m a mom of a 13 yr old hard headed soft hearted football jock..I’m 48 and think the hormones of a near menopausal mom and those of a pubescent dude in the same home could spell disaster!!
    we fume and sputter and get over it fast!!!
    will follow your blog…I’m a psych RN between jobs but possibly about to get back into psych home care.

    thanks for making me laugh! yeah to sponge bob. …my son will not admit he ever liked the teletubbies but i have proof!

    • mama2point0 says:

      Thanks so much for checking me out & for the compliments on my writing! So you have a 13 yr old son, eh? I used to teach junior high (pre kids) so I know how challenging that age can be. I suppose you might say we’re all a little nucking futs at some point during this whole parenting gig, wouldn’t you agree?! Hope you come back again for more of my weekly ramblings! 🙂

  12. wjhollenbeck says:

    wow, someone just turned me on to your blog and I’ve gotta say it’s just what this little prudish, Catholic girl who’s afraid to swear needed to read! You’re my new guilty pleasure. Oh and your from the best city in the world………………….no partiality from this native Chicagoan!

  15. Cdngirl2 says:

    Hi there!
    We normally speak via Twitter and I’ve never left any comment here but I feel I must tell you that I thoroughly enjoy reading your hilarious tales from nucking futsland.

    You make me laugh!
    Keep up with your witty commentary because I expect to keep laughing 😉
    But seriously, you are great at what you do – don’t stop.

    Take care of you.

    • nuckingfutsmama says:

      Wow! Thank you so much for the awesome compliment! I’m glad I can make you laugh — it’s one of my favorite things to do with my blog & on Twitter. I’ll keep on doing my thing if you promise to keep on reading my thing…… 😉

  17. Denise says:

    OMG. You R.O.C.K. Love, Love, Love your blog!

  18. Keia says:

    Once again…awesome!

    So where does that poop go? We’ve spent 30 minutes in the bathroom trying to figure it out…okay, okay, I left out of the bathroom, the boy on the other hand was still there when I came back – having a conversation to his self about it @ 2.5 –>who does that?!?

  19. Ado says:

    As you can see I am hopping all around your blog, loitering hither and yon. Oh my goodness – twins – two five-year-olds! Twice the fun and twice the brain damage.

    Also I have greatly enjoyed (and sympathized with) your hilarious tweets about AT&T. I am picturing Michael Douglas in that movie Falling Down – ever seen it? Ordinary citizen goes ape-shit in commuter traffic. Here is a photo:

    See you around…off to read some more of your wonderful posts.

    • nuckingfutsmama says:

      Yay! I love when new people stumble onto my blog! I’m always happy to know I’ve made someone giggle! Hope to see you around my nucking futty world more often! 😉

  20. mama says:

    i just found my 8 year old daughter looking at this website

  21. Kim says:

    LOVE your blog. I have 3 year old twin boys and am new to blogging. I can SO relate to so much of what you write about, it’s been fun to read (the “where does my poop go when I flush” conversation has been had in my house too!) I am new to Bloggy Moms, which is where I found you. If you can, stop by my site as well!
    I’ll keep following!

  22. Love your blog!
    I have two year old twins who make me question my sanity sometimes!

  23. I discovered you JUST NOW on The Write On Project and I am so happy I did. Love your hilariousness and depth!

    • nuckingfutsmama says:

      Why, thank you for that! Always happy to have new readers who dig my nucking futty stories! Hope you come back for more! 🙂

  24. Came across your site by accident and fell in love! I have to quit reading or I’ll never get any work done! Looking forward to browsing more and hearing from a fellow brain cell loser, I mean, mom…it does get funnier – my boys are 17 and 15 – just wait!

    • nuckingfutsmama says:

      So glad you stumbled onto my nucking futty site! Always thrilled to have new readers & hope you come back for more fun & games…… 🙂

  25. Hi there – good stuff! I am JUST starting out blogging myself. I am currently a SAHF of twins. I love them dearly, but – like you – they have “sucked nearly every last brain cell right outta my head” too!! Still trying to find my writing voice. I envision my blog (hopefully) branching out into various professional and personal realms, and possibly different domains / subdomains. Anyway, the most relevant post to date to your content can be seen here:

    Author’s note: This is a SATIRICAL piece, tongue VERY much in cheek. I love my kids, but I think EVERY parent has experienced those moments when they are about to lose it and going nucking futs. In any event, if you got a chance to read I’d be honored!

  26. Just stumbled across your blog as I was perusing the Bloggy Moms forums. You had me at Nucking Futs and shiteous. Great blog. Thanks for the laugh !

    • nuckingfutsmama says:

      Yay! So happy you found my blog! Always fun to have a new reader & hope to keep you coming back for more of my kooky tales from the trenches of motherhood. 🙂

  27. cyclonered says:

    • nuckingfutsmama says:

      Thank you so so much! I’m very honored & appreciative! And hope to keep you coming back for more of my silly tales! 🙂

  28. Molley Mills says:

    I came across your blog this morning, very, very funny. I’m probably the one making your google stats time on site go up! I can relate to so much of what you speak. Keep it up. I look forward to seeing more.
