#TGIF & FUN with Drunken Goats

What MOMS need after a long, hard week is a quirky, fast-paced, easy-to-learn card game with optional drinking rules. Cheers to the weekend & Drunken Goats!

  • Players start with 4 cards
  • The goal is to collect pairs of each of the 4 Beverage Cards
  • Players may use Action Cards strategically to block other players, steal/swap cards/etc…
  • Player’s turn ends when they pick up a card from the draw pile
  • No one gets “out.” Everyone is in play until the end
  • The games are short (~10 minutes)
  • Action Cards tell you what they can do (no need to remember rules/look them up)
  • Optional Drinking Rule: When someone gets a pair of Alcohol Cards, everyone else takes a drink

Join me & back this kickstarter! Check out all the pledge options including “Basic Goat Early Bird” at  $20 to get the First Edition of Drunken Goats delivered to You this summer 😉 I’m NOT your MOM, but please play responsibly 😉  XOXOXO, MotherStucker

Check out Tales of the Mischievious Harry Leviticus Bunking by LINCOLN WILLIAMS

From the author: Hi there! My name is Lincoln Williams, & I want to share my story with you. I accidently started this project about a year ago, out of sheer frustration. My oldest son Zion, is a very smart boy by all accounts, but he hates reading. I tried everything I could to encourage him to read more & I just could not. This was all the more frustrating for me because I am an avid reader! One day I was at home, & it suddenly dawned on me – Maybe, I could encourage my son to care more about reading if he could relate to the material that he was reading & that is how this project was born: “Tales of the Mischievous Harry Leviticus Bunking.” When I embarked on this project with Zion, I could see the immediate impact. Not only was he showing more interest in reading, but he was also motivated in helping to develop the characters for each short story in the series. Well, at the outset, this project was just supposed to be three short stories, but now the project has evolved two-fold. First, I have succeeded in motivating my son into being a better reader &; Second, I have re-discovered my passion for writing children’s stories! Personally, I have taken this project as far as I can from a financial standpoint & with the feedback that I am getting, I have decided that it is time to move beyond keeping this as a hobby for my children, close friends & my immediate family circle. The “Tales of the Mischievous Harry Leviticus Bunking” is a series of fast-paced short stories about a boy named Harry. Harry is always in search of fun! However, in his quest for the ultimate fun experience, Harry may go a little overboard. To be fair, Harry is a flawed character, but his intentions are not malicious. Folks, some of his choices leave a lot to be desired, & Harry ends up paying the price for those poor choices. As a parent of two very, very, active boys, I use Harry as examples of “teachable” moments. SO, Why Kickstarter? One word – INDEPENDENCE! I believe that by obtaining funding by crowdfunding on Kickstarter, I will be able to keep the Harry Bunking Series completely independent & 100% accountable to the people who matter most––our readers. I will be able to work independently without compromise to my creative process. A successful campaign on Kickstarter would give me the creative freedom with my project!

5 Cooking Ingredients to Revamp Spring Cooking

MOMS, Check out these 5 simple ingredients that will level UP your kitchen game! 

  1. Ghee: Touted as the new it butter, Ghee is a clarified butter that is dairy-free & known to help balance cholesterol levels. Try Carrington Farms Organic Ghee in place of butter in your favorite recipes to give you that buttery flavor – without the guilt!
  2. Greek Olive Oil: Known for being a “healthy fat,” Extra Virgin Greek Olive Oil is one of the most versatile foods in the world. It has a TON of health benefits that fight many age-related diseases, & has the ability to lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of cancer, lower blood pressure, & more. Choose a quality olive oil, such as Kalamata D.O.P. Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil, to cook all of your meals & to get the most out of your olive oil. Your dinner guests (& heart) will thank you!
  3. Sea Salt: Salt may get a bad rap, but that’s no reason to cut all salt out of your diet – Sea Salt is one of the good ones! It contains a higher mineral content than regular salt & will give your food more flavor. Try adding sea salt to your basic chocolate chip cookie recipe, & you will be glad you did!
  4. Beans & Legumes: With so many different varieties to choose from, beans are a versatile ingredient with a ton of health benefits. They are loaded with protein & fiber to keep you full all day long & are good for digestion. Switch up your bean game with bean pasta from Explore Cuisine– made with organic beans only!
  5. Lemon: It’s no secret the lemon can be used for just about everything. This vibrant fruit is loaded with vitamin C, magnesium, fiber, & contains more potassium than apples or grapes. Add lemon to your favorite chicken dish, your Greek yogurt for a savory snack, or your water to reap all the health benefits.

    Bon appétit! XO, Motherstucker 😉

Back to School Season = Greater Lice Risk

Back to school season is here, which means new school supplies, new friends & that dreaded four letter word-LICE. Head lice affects 6-12 million children each year in the U.S. But, this school year, parents need to be even more wary since lice populations have become resistant to over-the-counter treatments. A whopping 42 out of 48 states are overrun by a so-called super lice according to the “Journal of Medical Entomology”. 100% of lice tested were resistant to over-the-counter products. If a pesticide is used over & over, these little vermin will eventually develop resistance. It is also a safety concern when parents repeatedly use a product on their children, which can be a dangerous practice due to time limits between treatments.
