WELCOME

to your beautiful, messy, exhausting exhilarating life called motherhood.
We get motherhood because we're on that journey, too.

We're nutto, and we're here to help.

While we hope that our honest and raw look into motherhood provides you with some needed comic relief and comfort in knowing 'you're not the only one,' we realize that this is only part of the solution. Products to simplify some of those frustrating and unnecessarily complex things about motherhood are on the way (March/April 2013).

Where My Zero Tolerance Princess Policy Broke Down

For all the mamas that ever tried to swear off princesses forever, we think you’ll really appreciate this one.  Thanks to Lyz Lenz for such a wonderfully written and insightful piece.

Nutto Launches its first product!

Introducing Mama’s Milk Warmer
A safe, simple and effective way to warm breast milk

We’ve all been advised that the safest way to warm and thaw stored breast
milk is to put it in hot tap water. Ok. But where does that leave us? With
a lot of trial and error and long waiting times.

Whatever your method – filling a coffee mug with hot water, plugging the
sink, doing 2 cartwheels followed by a sneeze and knocking on wood
for good luck – it just shouldn’t be so hard.

We know what you went through to get it – so we’re making it easier to warm it.

a shout out to all of the moms…just because

We just came across this and had to share —

 

 

“My mom carried me in her womb for nine months… She felt sick for months with nausea, then she watched her feet swell & her skin stretch & tear; she struggled to climb stairs, she got breathless quick; she suffered many sleepless nights. She then went through excruciating pain to bring me into this world. Then, she became my nurse, my chef, my maid, my chauffeur, my biggest fan, my teacher, & my best friend. She’s struggled for me, cried over me, hoped the best for me, & prayed for me. Most of us take our mom for granted. Re-post if you love your mom more than anything in this world. I Love you Mom.”

“mom, dad…you did WHAT?!?!!”

For those who haven’t seen this, it’s quite funny and well-worth the watch.  As a quick set-up, Jimmy Kimmel issued a challenge to parents in which they told their kids they ate all of their Halloween candy (of course, this was pretend, and the kids were reunited with their candy-filled pumpkins as soon as filming stopped!).  We’ve only included the last 2 clips for your quick viewing pleasure — enjoy.

when dad’s in charge of the costumes…

classic bobbleDad on mama’s day

We just had to share some of these classic bobbleDad anecdotes with you.  We found these to be absolutely hilarious, and even a bit charming in their own way, given these dads were all trying really hard to be super-daddy on mom’s special day:

  • bobbleDad says:  “why don’t you go work out, you could really use it.”  Uhhh, thanks?  (Translation = you could use the time to yourself)
  • bobbleDad says to 18 month old:  “go get mom so she can get you dressed — we’re going to go get mom some surprises for her special day.”  Hmmm…getting the 18 month old dressed would have been a nice surprise
  • “We’re going to have a very special day for mom today!” bobbleDad announces to his 6 month old in an ever-so-proud of himself tone as he steps over the plethora of toys, drool and smeared rice cereal all over the floor…
  • “Happy Mother’s Day.  You’re the best mom ever…”  bobbleDad whispers to his wife while rolling over to go back to sleep at 3am as she gets up to console their crying 13 week old…

Have some good inadvertent bobbleDad blunders to share?  We’d love to hear your stories here or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/nuttoFB.

bad mommy moments

We all have them; we’re only human after all. 

Whether completely accidental, out of sheer exhaustion or not-so-accidental but just couldn’t be helped in the moment, we all have those bad mommy moments we wish we could take back (or not!).  We nutto mamas like to think of them as opportunities to show our children that everyone makes mistakes and it’s ok not to be perfect…

Some of our favorite bad mommy moments:

  • 2 y/o finding his artwork from the day before in the trash…and your responding with, “OH NO, how did that get in there?  I’ve been looking everywhere for it!”
  • Telling your 3 y/o the cookies are all gone only to have her walk in on you eating them after a bad dream at 11:00pm.
  • Lying to your toddler’s dentist in response to the question, “are you brushing his teeth at least twice a day?”  …So much pressure!!
  • Zoning out and responding to something your 2.5 y/o asked by saying, “Sure, honey, sounds great,” only to realize that you just agreed to let him try pooping in a Tupperware container. 
  • Pretending you didn’t hear your 4 y/o teaching her 18 month old brother curse words she learned at school that day.
  • Contributing just a wee-teeny-tiny-ever-so-slightly-bit to your 22 month old’s art project after his day care teacher adamantly encouraged “no parent involvement.”
  • “Losing” your 2.5 y/o’s Baby Alive that poops and pees all over the house a minimum of 17 times a day…

We’d love to hear about some of your moments – please share here or on Facebook at  www.facebook.com/nuttoFB.

February 8, 2011 - 5:55 pm kari - letting your 3 yr old have pudding for breakfast just to get her to stop smacking her brother.

January 12, 2011 - 7:14 am becky - Ignoring your 21 month old telling her Daddy when she is naughty around him that she is a lil sh** because she know it makes him laugh and 9 x 10 gets her out of a time out from him.

rembrandt on the sheets

This is the scene I walked into in my bedroom after leaving my almost 2 year old unattended for 1.27 minutes.  Oh, and by the way, the markers used on the sheets were a gift from my mother-in-law — yes…they’re permanent.

Laugh or cry…???

January 10, 2011 - 9:28 am Ingrid Potter - Continuous art project! Cute, but by no means let them think it's appropriate to continue on your other sheets!

January 10, 2011 - 7:31 am Heather - Since the damage is already done, I say let them continue on with their artwork. :) You can always cut a piece out & frame it.

January 10, 2011 - 7:15 am moon - my twin boys found markers when they were three and playing army indoors. they drew on every battle wound in big blobs of red ink. on their new clothes. i chose to laugh at them but griped my now ex out about playing bloody games in front of them.

so glad we’re not the only ones…
