Where the Bruised Cucumber meets the Sippy Cup!

A Loud Mama with a loud family, living imperfect lives glorified through God and breaking free of the bondage of politically correct Religion. We do things differently around the Viking Homestead, and hope that, by sharing our lives, we can help others feel more comfortable with their differences as well.

Mama Viking Loves September!!

I don't know about you, but September is the start of a LONG chain of WONDERFUL events in the Viking household!! With the start of school comes the routine of fall...and the occasional 5 minutes of freetime for me! Little Viking started Mother's Day Out this year, Little Valkyrie is in Elementary School and so, the only regret is having two lunchboxes to keep up with!! September gives us time to get ready for Halloween and Little Viking's Birthday and my unofficial and much forgotten anniversary! Then comes November, with the Christmas Eating warmup known as thanksgiving. December brings the obvious, and January brings the entire world into some sort of hazy hangover season until we all have to sober up and shave in an attempt to not be single on Valentine's Day!! Now that i've got a few minutes to spare, I can talk about one of the things that is making my life really wonderful right now. My NEW cloth diapers!! I've been using cloth diapers for awhile, mostly ones that I make, but finally ventured out into buying them. I got a Sustainablebabyish Fitted, and Kiwi Pie One Size Fitted, and a Marvels One Size Fitted. Full reviews of each diapers with pictures, pros, cons and links to each site will follow, 1 per day for the next three days!! See You Tomorrow to talk about Sustainablebabyish!

Mama Viking Starts A Blog!

Hi all! I'm Mama Viking, proud Mama to a Little Viking and a Little Valkyrie. I'm Married to Cranky Pirate. We Do things a little differently in the Viking household! I'm slightly(INCREDIBLY)Slacker-tastic. I use cloth diapers...when they're clean and Little Viking doesn't run off naked. I recycle, sometimes. I play video games more often than I should and more often than not I consider coffee to be its own food group. Yes, we do things differently, and we have a TON of drama, but we make it work. I'm looking forward to reviewing different products that are are practical for modern families. Soon I'll be talking about some recently tested cloth diapers....Can't Wait!!
