I am a member of the Lame Moms Club! Everyone in my family has some exciting hobby they rush home too – motorcycles for the husband, train and tracks for my son, Skilander trap WII game for my daughter and what is my excitement of the evening? I keep myself busy with cooking, cleaning, and making sure that the kids go to sleep on time. How much fun is that?
Are you are member of the Lame Moms Club? If you are, you probably don’t even realize it until somebody asks you about your hobby and you answer “KIDS“. Seriously? On the list of the hobbies, you will never find a category “kids”. You can call it a full time job, the work you love, the purpose of your life, but not a hobby. However, if “kids” is your answer to the question, you need help and I am here to serve.
Get a life! Find a Hobby!
There are a lot of hobbies you might consider exploring. You can do puzzles, learn photography techniques, walk or jog, read a magazine. Any activity that helps you de-stress would be a good choice, but I know first hand that it might not happen right away – just start exploring. You might be surprised with what you discover about yourself. I was nearly shocked when I discovered love for bike riding.
If you are anything like me, you don’t leave the room without your phone. However, what is on your smartphone? If your phone is filled with kids songs, games, books, and educational material, you might be the coolest mom in your own mind, but anyone else would call it lame. While you are waiting at the kids practice or in the grocery line, what do you do? Worse case scenario, you are mentally going over your to-do list for the day and for the best case scenario you are playing a candy crash. Try something new and exciting. Which apps make YOU happy? What kind of material de-stresses you, entertains you, and just make you smile?
Are you ready for your own personal smartphone makeover?
Clean your phone – move most of your family photos onto your computer, get rid of the games your kids no longer play, delete songs that your kids grew out of.
Go app shopping. I love how many apps are out there that are free or almost free. My personal favorites are Zinio for reading magazines, Camera Plus for doing all kinds of fun stuff with photos, and the Intel Pocket Avatar for making me smile. This last one will instantly move you from lame to cool, because it is just that much fun.
You can call it a creative messenger.

Now kick back, see your family react to your silliness and be proud – yeah, mom, you still got it!
