Hi. Welcome. I created CookieMOMster because when I was a first time mom 6 years ago cookies saved me. I was in a whirlwind of sleepless nights, crying and baby drool. I ate lots of cookies and began writing. Writing had been my passion since I was young and I had forgotten how much it meant to me. It's funny how these little lives come into your life and cause chaos but at the same time allow you to re-discover yourself. Thank you to Konrad and Koby for that. So sit down have a cookie and read. I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy writing. Thanks for visiting. I'm glad you stopped by.

5 Ways for Mom to get PEACE

Even before the alarm rings there is a wet nose poking me, telling me it's time to wake up. Then the sound of pitter patter and "Mommy it's time to get up."

So begins the day....

dogs out, breakfast for the kids, feed the dogs, get everyone dressed, out the door we go....

get the kids to school then off to work....

phones ring, text messages sound, email beeps, paper work to finish. 5 O'clock....

get my coat, get the kids, off to soccer practice, band practice, ballet.
belly grumbles- make dinner. Homework, bath time, story time, bed.....

PAUSE- breathe....CAN'T....

laundry, shoot forgot to feed the dogs, feed the dogs, bathroom is a mess, load the dishwasher, finish reports, make tomorrows lunches, clothes into dryer, sweep, mop, dust, vacuum.....

finally,.... bed.

cold wet nose on the check...."Mommy , mommy time to get up."
one eye open, UGH. 5 a.m. Instant reply ............

How does a mom get PEACE?

P...pace yourself. It's not a race.
E...embrace each day. It truly is a blessing.
A...ask for help. You don't have to be supermom.
C...cut yourself a break. You are doing great.
E...energize yourself. Do something you enjoy for 10 minutes a day.

I grab a cup of coffee with a cookie and simply sit.

Peace out to all you busy moms and anyone else who can hardly breathe because of a busy life.


  1. You ARE doing great! Whether kids are past, present, or future, I believe everyone can relate to this. Another winner, Kim!

  2. Love this Kim! Nice to know I'm not alone (as a new stepMom - I guess). And thank you for the Peace definition and reminder! So, who's doing ballet!??? LOL

  5. I could have written this! So true! I am breathing usually right before I go to bed at midnight. HA. But really, I love the acronym and everything it represents.

    PEACE to you! And pass the cookies. ;-)

  6. So so true, but I wouldn't change a thing. Being a Mom is the best thing I have ever done. The chaos and never ending drama is what I love. Thanks for the inspiration Kim, and keep blogging. Love ya, Debbie

  7. love this! Carole
