Mommy Needs a Business is all about the joys of running your own business. You never drafted a complete business plan, you couldn't be further from your law school degree and you are now referring to your 12 years of law enforcement as your "former life." But you get to screen print tee shirts in your pajamas while pulling your toddler and preschooler out of vats of ink. What more could a mom want?

I’m banging this post out on my two week old laptop. My laptop which, at this moment, is lighter because it lacks a space bar, numbers 1, 2, and 3, tab, shift lock, shift and maybe a function key? Let me say it again. NEW laptop.
It seems that while I took my 4 minutes to make lunch, The Baby took his 4 minutes to rapidly rip as many keys off my keyboard as he could before he got busted. That would be over 30. To say that I cried would be a mild understatement. This was my laptop that we couldn’t afford but that my husband said I needed because of all the trouble the kids would get into when I went downstairs to use the desktop. The desktop that is about 20 seconds away from the blue screen of death.
Thus the low-end laptop with which I am in love. Sure it has no software on it and it’s last year’s technology. But by golly, the felony rate has gone down rapidly around here. Until today. Thing is, I knew he had it in him. He had just done it to an old broken laptop he found in the closet two weeks ago. I knew better.
I knew better. I should be happy though. At around this age, his brother decided to take a hit off a Costco-size bottle of children’s vitamins. He ate 50 in 4 minutes. At least this didn’t require an ER trip. So I have spent the last 2 hours doing surgery on my laptop. I re-attached 25 keys. That’s good, right? I didn’t get one thing done that I needed to get done and now I just want to cry in a beer. The beer I can’t have because I am pregnant. Oh, the joys of the work-at-home-mom. Whose idea was this anyway?
