Let Me Tell You A Little Bit About Me

Post image for Let Me Tell You A Little Bit About Me

Some things you need to know about me in case you ever decide to show up at my doorstep. Which…is something you really shouldn’t do unless invited…I might make that face I’m not a fan of and we don’t want that.

Cooked carrots make me vomit.

I’m not a fan of feet over the age of three.

About three fourths of my wardrobe exist only because I buy what I see my sister wear to family dinners.

about me

My sister gives me dirty looks at family dinners.

My three year old refuses to sleep in his own bed because he likes to “snuggle wit me” and I’m warm.

I only pretend to care that my three year old won’t sleep in his own bed.

My cousin told me Jesus could hear everything I was thinking, so in fourth grade I said eff it and started swearing out loud.

Rosary in hand, I’d apologize every night for my naughty cuss words…that way if I were to die in my sleep I’d still go to heaven.

Want some more fun facts about me? Watch on my friends:

Mama Kat Loves You When You Love Her

When do you do the homecare?

Mama Kat May 24, 2011 at 6:47 am

I do the daycare from 7am to 6pm everyday. I’ve got a handful of kids I scurry off to school every morning about four with me for the rest of the day. This is as quiet as it’s ever been and I LOVE it!

Polish Mama on the Prairie May 24, 2011 at 6:46 am

I hate cooked carrots too lol

Mama Kat May 24, 2011 at 6:48 am

My grandma made me eat them when I was five and I threw up. I’ve hated them ever since. :(

Polish Mama on the Prairie May 24, 2011 at 12:48 pm

Oh, that’s me with Oyster Crackers! I was about 5 and threw them back up into my b0wl & started sobbing that my mother would make me eat them, which of course she thought was very funny that I in my feverish state would think she would be so diabolical (she is that diabolical, btw) as to feed them back to me. She didn’t but I can’t look at Oyster Crackers ever since without getting sick to my stomach. Ewwww… The cooked carrots have to be cooked a very particular way including sugar and cream and stuff or I just can’t do it.

Nicole Welkener May 24, 2011 at 6:55 am

Damn the mange! ;)

Jennifer May 24, 2011 at 7:00 am

What you DO have is a really great set of eyebrows. Do you tweeze or wax? Is that too personal of a question?

Kandice May 24, 2011 at 7:03 am


Mama Kat May 24, 2011 at 7:25 am

My Grandma once told me I was blessed with my Grandpa’s eyebrows. (Grandpa: http://www.mamakatslosinit.com/2008/06/yesterday-we-had-little-brunch-at-my/)

Needless to say I took that as a sign I needed to start plucking AND waxing. The answer to your question is BOTH (but carefully!)

Kandice May 24, 2011 at 7:02 am

Me thinks mamakat likes the vlog :D You have my admiration for the at home day care thing… I have one 12 y/o and 1 2 y/o and I am COUNTING the days till preschool where he will be w/ ppl who like kids. ;) I like mine.. in small, clean, happy doeses. HA you’d think I was one of those rich (have a nanny types)!! lol More vlog.. more vlog!! I love MAMAKAT! :D

Mama Kat May 24, 2011 at 7:26 am

Vlogging is fun. :)

And believe me…my son is FIRST on the list for preschool this fall!

Maggie S. May 24, 2011 at 7:14 am

Carrots should never be exposed to heat.

Cari May 24, 2011 at 7:16 am

I love a Mama Losin’ It Vlog!!!

Paulette May 24, 2011 at 7:30 am

Did he say YAY the potty isn’t Yucky anymore? Too cute & funny!

You crack me up!

Mama Kat May 24, 2011 at 7:54 am

Yes! I am the world’s worst plunger and the toilet had gotten clogged…I guess he had been waiting to use it for awhile.

Atlanticwriter May 24, 2011 at 7:40 am

My 3 year old snuggles with me because he says I’m warm… I just pretend to have slept through the 1am arrivals in our bed and keep him with me all night. How much longer will my warmth be enough? Not much.

Mama Kat May 24, 2011 at 7:56 am

:( waa to babies growing up.

one cluttered brain May 24, 2011 at 7:40 am

You are awesome mama kat!
i hope someday i can meet you at a blogging conference one day…
You are a vlogging rockstar!

Cam May 24, 2011 at 8:02 am

you totally crack me up. i think you better watch your back. i saw a little one ready to steal the spotlight! :)

Angel May 24, 2011 at 8:16 am

I love your vlogs they crack me up. When you did the one of you singing in the car my boys were telling me that I do the same thing.. ok I do lol.. complete with dance moves..How do mice get mange?Do I want to know??
Lmbo @ the potty thing sounds like something my boys would say but not cause it’s clogged simply because it is the BOYS potty need I say more..

Jessica Plassmeyer May 24, 2011 at 8:22 am

I pretend to care my baby doesn’t sleep in his crib, something about the snuggling just warms my heart :) ps I love the hamster cage in the background!

Gabrielle May 24, 2011 at 8:33 am

Great vlog! I hope you keep it up! I’m blogging and vlogging too! Anyway, I love your blog! Makes me feel sane to know someone else has similar feelings/thoughts! haha!

A Mommy in the City May 24, 2011 at 8:50 am

Your vlogs are by far the most entertaining ones to watch! I used to teach too and now I enjoy staying home with my daughter! The outtakes on this vlog are hilarious! You are not boring, BTW!

Amy May 24, 2011 at 8:53 am

Haha! Your son was hilarious! I also love your outtakes :)

Jen May 24, 2011 at 9:11 am

You are so awesome and I will add these things to the things that I already know about you so that someday, my stalker book on Mama Kat will be complete.

hillary May 24, 2011 at 9:18 am

You’re HILARIOUS! You belong on SNL for sure ;)

Run with Jess May 24, 2011 at 9:35 am

Hilarious Momma!

leslie May 24, 2011 at 10:20 am

You are “effing” (your word) HILARIOUS! ( I read about GRANDPA and the all caps thing too by the way).
I give this Vlog a big WOOT – and trust me, it works here :-)

tori nelson May 24, 2011 at 11:58 am

That might be the BEST justification for cussing out loud. And I plan to use it :)

Simone May 24, 2011 at 12:40 pm

Mama Kat, you just made me smile.
You also made me watch a vlog and LIKE IT – I have never been a fan of vlogging.
But you may be curing me of that.
I am even considering doing a little vlog for my About Me page. Just so you can hear my accent.
So once I think of some stuff to say… I’ll let you know OK?

Gigi May 24, 2011 at 2:48 pm

I love your vlogs (and your blogs). And yeah, cooked carrots – ewwwwww.
And really? Jesus hears our thoughts?!?! Then I better just start saying what I’m thinking out loud – especially to the people that irritate me beyond belief.

Jessica May 24, 2011 at 3:29 pm

It was nice to meet you more.

SuzRocks May 24, 2011 at 4:25 pm

So you’re saying that you don’t want me to come over with a fresh home-baked casserole of carrots?

Your Southern Peach May 24, 2011 at 6:01 pm

My son tells me “he loves crawling in bed with me because I’m hot.”

I’ll take it. :)

kisatrtle May 24, 2011 at 6:17 pm

Inspired to make my own…love it!

Wombat Central May 24, 2011 at 6:35 pm

I’d totally send a “hope the mange gets better” card if they made one. Is it a hamster? Zhu Zhu pet? What’s in those tubes?

Not Winning Mom of the Year May 24, 2011 at 7:26 pm

This was so damn funny, I watched it twice. Loved the last couple seconds. You kill me!

Erin May 24, 2011 at 9:18 pm

I’m sorry…..did you say that you didn’t have an addiction? Wait let me go back and re-see this and see if that is what you said…..

Brittany May 25, 2011 at 1:02 am

You would be the best high school English teacher. Ever.

Tiffany May 25, 2011 at 6:29 am

Are you currently taking applications for new friends? I would like to apply! :-)

Stasha May 25, 2011 at 8:24 am

Your vlogs are great fun. Goes without saying your son is cute. The reason I am commenting is far more important. I needed to tell you I love your hair, it always looks lovely. There I said it. As you were.

Kir May 25, 2011 at 9:30 am

Loved this…so interesting to find out more about you!!!
Plus your son is seriously cute!

I think I need to start vlogging. It looks like fun!

Kate May 25, 2011 at 5:07 pm

Oh yeah, sleeping with the rosary, begging for forgiveness? Been there, done that. :) Prolly doing it tonight!

Cookie's Mom May 25, 2011 at 6:41 pm

You crazy! And I love it. Love “the face” too. One of these days I’ll have to do me one of these Vloggy things. Just discovered you and your pretty much world famous writing prompts – linking up for the first time… tomorrow!! Yay!

Carri May 27, 2011 at 8:39 pm

I LIVE to make fun of people. And now that I can vlog about it? So perfect for me… because I’m usually too lazy to even type.

Kristi ~ Artsea June 11, 2011 at 3:48 am

LoL! I love it!

TheJessicaness December 27, 2011 at 4:44 pm

I am exactly the same way with feet. I thought you were either a foot person or you weren’t but I suppose that is just the love/hate relationship I have with my own feet.
