It’s 5:00 pm.  Almost SHOWTIME!

This means it’s time for you to prepare for your Oscar-Worthy performance. Your audience will be home by 5:30 pm, which means you only have 30 minutes to lay the groundwork to your act.

After reading the title to today’s manuscript, The Stay-at-Home-Mom that Actually Works, you get pumped and whisper words of encouragement to yourself, “I got this. I can do this well.”

So, you go to your trailer, that just so happens to be your bedroom, and you start getting ready. You grab your apron from your wardrobe. You sit in the make-up chair and have your toddler make-up artist powder your cheeks with flour to give your performance a more dramatic touch.  And to add that extra ‘umph’ to your appearance, you train your children – that are just absolute angels all day – to cry hysterically and pull at the hem of your skirt out of a dire need, just at the right time.

You rehearse your lines and reconsider the tone of your voice because it wasn’t convincing:  Melancholy is what you are aiming for.  You do a dry run right before your audience comes into the house and you nailed it.  It’s perfect!

Okay, now the real show is about to begin. It’s 5:30 pm.  The curtain, also known as the front door, opens and…  A STAR IS BORN!  Or, at least that’s what your husband thinks.  The sly look of skepticism on his face is a clear indicator that he believes your genuine reality is simply a sham.  And he waits, and waits, and waits for you to take your bow, however this is no act.

He thinks that you have just been kicking back all day.  You find yourself in a frequent struggle getting him to believe that you actually work and that the way you contribute to the family – although not monetarily – is priceless.

In The Stay-at-Home Mom and the Husband that Resents Her, Nikki Ace uses her personal experience to:

* illustrate how seeking God fervently helped her to appreciate her value as a wife and a stay-at-home mom

* demonstrate how applying biblical principles to her marriage gave her insight and clarity on how to be the best player in her role, consequently bringing out the best in her husband

* reveal how she developed more understanding of her husband’s perspective and his expectations of her

* debunk the myths that plague stay-at-home moms

* present a marriage that is a continuous work in progress and to celebrate how God’s unchanging hand persistently blesses this union

Happy Birthday Lil’ Wes!!!!


He went from this…


…to THIS in a matter of seconds!!!

I call him my ‘Organ Defroster’ because he melts my heart away.  WOW!  That was corny, huh? He really does something special to my heart though.  I never knew I could love this hard and with so much compassion until he came into my life.  He can do something soooooooooooooo terrible (like stick his whole hand in a jar of vaseline and then wipe his hands off on the comforter) and I will be extremely upset for about 5 minutes 23 seconds – if even that! Then I look into those gorgeous, “please- forgive-me”eyes and all is forgotten.  It just reminds me of the love and grace that Jesus has for us everyday, although his sympathy is on another scale that I can not touch with a ten foot pole.  I praise God everyday for blessing me with a beautiful, healthy, kind-hearted, and the most fun son in the whole wide world. 

Happy Birthday Lil’ Wes!!!! Mommy loves you ~ FOREVER!

Words of Wisdom to the Stay-at-Home Moms and Their Husbands

Don’t You Wish He Could Read Your Mind?


A SAHM always appreciates a little unsolicited help around the home from her hubby. The problem is that most men don’t get hints, so the rolling of our eyes and the disappointing sighs mean nothing to him. It’s important for SAHMs to be CRYSTAL CLEAR in stating our specific needs and desires to our husbands. I can almost promise you… he doesn’t know! He thinks everything is “fine and dandy”. Even if he sees you with bald patches in your head from stress because you are literally carrying the house on your back while having a baby latched to your breast ( we’re talented aren’t we?), he’s thinking, “She’s just PEACHY!”

Remember that a closed mouth won’t get fed, so it’s imperative to make your requests known. “Honey, can you change the baby’s diaper for me?…Sugar Plum, I am having difficulty getting the twins ready, can you be a doll and start breakfast for us?” You can’t go wrong if you ask, but if he consistently says “no”, that is a whole other can of worms.

I just know that I always expected my husband to just KNOW. But he didn’t ladies. HE DIDN’T!!! I don’t know how he didn’t, but HE DIDN’T and after reading enough relationship books, my assumptions were correct: I didn’t marry a dummy…I married a man ~ a smart man at that. And guess what? He justs needs a roadmap. So ladies, guide them.

Papa Didn’t Raise No Fool


Over 710,000 hits on You Tube!!!

I wanted to post this blog with the sole purpose of making you smile.  You can’t help but crack a grin after watching this video of my father and I getting our boogie on at my wedding in 2006. This was so much fun. You have to admit, we were getting down! Pops was grooving!  WOW… I must be getting old. Who says grooving anymore?

Anyhow, my father and I have more than dancing as our special bond. I totally get my creative genius from him.  Since I’ve known this man (from birth about 25 years ago…wink wink), he has come up with about 11,780,345 inventions.  This averages out to be about…hmmm.. A LOT every year!  He used to call a family meeting every time he came up with a new idea and we would shoot ideas back to him on how he could improve his invention and also let him know whether or not someone would actually buy it.  In fact, our most exciting moment was when his product qualified to be on QVC.  QVC guys!!! Can you believe it?  This is every inventors dream and he did it!   

 You should see the little doodads he has around our home.  When he sees a need, he fills a need.  Even if that means inventing a mirror stand, connected to a hand mirror, that is placed on top of the bed to reflect what’s on television while someone is sitting on the toilet in his master bedroom.  You can watch tv  – or tv on the mirror, for that matter- and sit on the potty all at the same time!   Now if that’s not evidence of extraordinary intellect, I don’t know what is.  Overall, this guy is a hustler- the legal kind- and I always admire how he (as an entrepreneur for over 30 years) made things happen.I just love this dude.  He’s the greatest! 

Since becoming a stay- at- home mom, I, too, have come up with myriads of inventive products that makes life just a little bit easier.  Let’s just say that I am his little twin with ovaries, lengthy hair, two pierced ears, and a coke bottle figure (don’t I wish!) .And most recently, we both became published authors!!! Check out both of our books.

(W.O.W. = words of wisdom)

W.O.W. – The Lord has blessed me with the most wonderful earthly father.  You never know what influence you have on your children.  Make it good!  I learned from my father that hard work eventually pays off and to never give up.  He is now working on invention number 11,780, 346  and I will be right there to listen and shoot my ideas back to him.
