WE'RE ONE YEAR OLD!

Today MommyLand turns ONE! We are so so happy. We had to celebrate! But that takes time, planning, babysitters, dressing up, informing the Cap'n and McLovin and drinking in public, which may not always be our best idea...so, we did one better.

We made a video in the BWT. We're classy.

So, to all of you out there in MommyLand, thank you thank you thank you...from the bottom of our hearts. You've made this an amazing year...now, grab a hankie!
Kate was thisclose to hugging someone. We love you...



xoxo, Kate and Lydia

  4. :( I had audio issues with the video :( But fun video, irritating playback aside ;) My question...was that early in the morning or later in the day when you were all hopped up on lattes? Congrats on the anniversary and all that has happened to Mommyland recently!

  15. When the camera went back toward Lydia after the first time it was on Kate, and Lydia's hand went up, it looked like a butt at first. Yay, Lydia mooned me! Except not.

  20. Happy birthday!! You guys make me laugh everyday. So not only do we keep you sane it works both ways. I appreciate that you take the time out of your lives to let me know that I'm not the only one that has a crazy, difficult, wonderfully beautiful life!

  22. Happy Anniversary gals! I'm sooo glad I happened upon you one day! My Maude, you make my days MUCH more bearable. I share you at least weekly on FB just to make my other awesome mommy friends smile and spew coffee onto their computer screens as well. Thank you for being so real. unique. and genuine!!!
    And thank you for mentioning my name like 1000 times in your video :}

  24. That was awesome... I'm so happy the Huffpo "outed" y'all.... now that we can put "faces" with names... and voices too... it's like we're REALLY friends! LOL

    But in all seriousness.... thank you thank you thank you for the HI-larious posts. You made me realize I'm not the only mom on the verge of the Nervous Hospital and that it is OKAY!!! You've added so many new and colorful words to my vocabulary (and not on the bad kind of "colorful words"). Keep up the great work and keep the posts coming.

    We love you girls!!!

    Happy anniversary!!!!

  28. Aw! I love you guys! I've been reading almost since the beginning--I discovered your blog last November through a friend on facebook, and I've been reading ever since. It is such a true reflection of what we all face as moms.....and I love how you don't sugar-coat anything like so many others try to do. It's honest and funny and reading your posts really brighten my morning.

    Love the musical selections in the BWT....

  31. Happy Anniversary Ladies! You girlz are the awesomesauce! I am so glad I discovered you.

  32. Happy Blogiversary Gals! You completely had me at t-box!!

    Seriously, I started my blog right around when you started yours and wanted it to be a support group for moms who can come and scream in a closet with me for a minute and know this is all normal, BUT when I started my blog I got snitchy people telling me I was being disrespectful and it stole my thunder! So I went back and edited all the fun out of my blog-like an idiot! But then I found you and saw that it was okay and not nasty, and I made it back to my true self and continue to make fun of this nonsense every day!
    I think laughter is what gets us through the quicksand of motherhood and that is my base.
    THANK YOU! THANK YOU! For helping a girl out and letting me know it's okay to make fun of it and it's not rude or ugly. Like you said, if we don't make fun of the seriousness of it all, we'll be found in a corner rocking and spouting some incoherent babble.
    THANK YOU again for letting me guest post a couple of months back! It was awesome and you totally validate me!
    Know that we're all here with you all the way!
    WOOT!!

  33. Awww... you two are the cutest. Happy Anniversary!

  34. Happy Anniversary!! I can't even tell you how much I enjoy your posts. They absolutely make me laugh everyday. It's so wonderful to have mom's supporting mom's rather than being in competition with them. Thank you for your posts. Keep them coming for another year!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Happy Birthday, Mommyland!! Thank you for always starting my day off with laughs. Keep on truckin'.

  36. Happy Blogiversary Ladies! I heart your blog so much...you both are amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks for being there, Ranters. You've given me hours of laughs, tons of inspiration and one pretty epic hangover!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Love you guys! Reading your blog is the highlight of my morning! Happy anniversary!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Mommyland is the topic of "watercooler talk" amongst my mommy friends DAILY! :-) "Didja read about that snitch that HIT Lydia's stroller?!" "OMG, my nose still hurts after that snort of coffee this morning. I think I need a new keyboard." We love you ladies, and are super happy you've been outed so we can see you're beautiful faces! Can NOT WAIT for the tap recital video! Now we don't have to just watch your feet! :-) Happy Anniversary!

  40. Happy anniversary! You guys keep me sane. Without you there would be much rocking. And drinking. And my husband would have to listen to me whine a lot more than he does now, so he thanks you too!

    The husband is coming to your part of the world on a business trip soon and I honestly thought about tagging along just so I could stalk the BWT. Is that strange? I would farm out my four kids to whoever would take them, spend lots of money on plane tickets, a passport (since I'm Canadian) and a rental car, then drive around a strange city looking for a big white van. Then I realized that I'm a crazy driver who is prone to hysteria when I'm stressed. I get lost easily, which makes me stressed. I'd probably cause an international incident that would involve me being led away in chains screaming "But I need to find the tampon!" so I decided to stay home. This time. :)

    Anyway, love you guys! You rock.

  41. Thank you so much for being you and being there! I heart you both, and hope you know how important you are to my sanity (and most likely to others' sanity)!!!!

  44. Happy Blogiversary! You girls are awesome!! I have 10 month old twin girls and when they are driving up the wall sideways, I know that I can hide in the office and read this blog and everything is ok again. LOL. Thanks for all the laughs. Keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete

  49. Congrats on your anniversary! Keep it coming! So much fun! However, the video, just a little bit like seeing the wizard at the end of the "Wizard of Oz". Seriously, it's nice to be able to see a face in my mind when I read your posts. Bummed that we didn't get to see the clogs and Choo's

  50. Happy birthday, my lovelies! You don't look a day over 6 months!
    You two are going to be big like the colour blue and I can't wait!! You're rock stars. Say it in the mirror every morning -- "I'm an effing rock star so suck it fancy, haters".

  51. You two are fantastic! Thanks for bringing more laughter into my life, because there is never enough! And some day I want to guest post about my failure as a soccer mom. Or maybe you two could write a post about failing as a soccer mom and then I would feel better about being a failure as a soccer mom.

    XOXO

  52. Happy birthday! It's my birthday, too, but I'm a little older than one ;)

  53. Thanks for brightening up our world....I want to share you with everyone! From Granny B

  54. Dear Kate & Lydia, I am still not a Mommy and after a year of reading you two... I STILL want to be one! How crazy does that make me? I wonder if I'm related to Offspring 1...?
    Anyhow, without you two I would have laughed a lot less, wept many more sad tears, never have officially "met" Randy and never would have used the words "Suck it". Thank you for being a bright spot in my day.
    Let's have another t-box party. I swear I won't bail to have a date with Clark...
    xoxo, Dagney

  55. Happy Anniversary, Kate and Lydia! Your blog is AWESOME! Thank you for sharing little slices of your lives with us. Thank you for being so honest, and so funny, and so all-around incredible.

    There have been days where I don't think I would've gotten off of my couch, unless someone was crying, except to read your blog. Knowing that there are people out there, going through the same things, still having fun and making fun of it all, keeps me going. You often help me make it through a day.

    Happy Anniversary! Here's to the future! And thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

  56. You guys are so FREEKING cute!!! Happy Anniversary! I look forward to many more!

    Happy Birthday!

You guys are awesome, PLEASE keep it up!!!

  62. Love your blog, love your posts, love the good and bad. Thanks for sharing your lives with us. I still tear up over Kate's post about McLovin returning from overseas...but I cannot read Mommyland in the library anymore. Something about snorts and unexplained giggles. Bunch of fuddy-duddies. ;) Congrats ladies! All the best in year (season?) two!

    ReplyDelete
