Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

About Me

I live in the Midwest with my husband and two wonderful children (for the purposes of this blog they will be called Bernardo and Higgins). I worked outside of the home as well as helped my husband run an entertainment business for several years. When my oldest was born, I went part time and am now a stay at home mom. 

I love throwing my boys birthday parties, and I sometimes go a little overboard. I finally organized my ideas in in late 2011, I published my first book. Animals To Trains is about planning and throwing children's birthday parties. It has several themes and each is broken down into invitations, decorations, activities, food, cake, and favors.

I still had lots of non-birthday ideas. My husband recommended starting a blog and doing something with them, so here I am! I hope you find something useful on here!

I (the blog) participate in the Amazon Associates Program. How it works: If you go to Amazon through any of the links or search boxes on my site and purchase an item (even if it's not the same item I linked to), I can get a small referral commission. It's not a large amount, but it has helped pay for the domain name renewal a few times (about $10). There is a tricky part though. If you click on my link, then click on another web page/blog/etc. before completing the purchase, it will forget my link and I won't get credit for the referral. If you do use the links, thank you very much!!!

If you want to contact me, my email is cake_star_mom@yahoo.com.
