This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Red Baron® pizza. The opinions and text are all mine.
On the toughest days when the challenges and drama are at their max, this mom likes to proclaim it a Red Baron® “Pizza Night!” and all the kids applaud!
Do you know what having four kids means? It means that, at any given moment, at least two of them will be at war over territory (a.k.a. their rooms) or possessions (i.e. toys). It’s actually pretty amazing how consistently the odds play out when we’re talking about squabbles in the home.
But mama is no stranger to the role of referee. On the contrary! I’ve become master of reading kid body language and deducing exactly who’s the guilty party and who the victim is in pretty much any given instance. I’ve added that survival skill to my resume, along with a growing list of things, like problem solving my way out of the second dryer malfunction over the course of two weeks with a mountain of dirty clothes begging to be tackled.
And I’ve well-earned the title of “night owl extraordinaire” as I answer that 2, 4, and then 6:00 a.m. wake up call.
I’m the slayer of dragons and monsters in nightmares, the wiper of crocodile tears, and the calm, comforting hand to settle all fears. And, there’s no one’s kisses that can cure the common “boo-boo” quite like mama’s. Not even a Band-Aid can trump the magical touch of mom’s lips.
When all I’ve managed to accomplish in my day is taxiing kids to and from school, breaking up quarrels and cleaning up spills, I find complete solace in unboxing a Red Baron® Brick Oven Meat Trio Pizza from Target. In fact, it makes me grin, knowing that I’m able to serve up a nearly-effortless meal that no one will complain about. I celebrate every triumph, no matter the size, especially on the most difficult of days.
My whole family raves about the crispy, bubbly golden brown crust topped with premium cheeses, robust sauce and hearty toppings. Pizza night is synonymous for “Fun and good times ahead!” at our house.
The professional multitasker award goes to…Mom! I can single-handedly help one child solve a story problem and call out how to spell “giraffe” for another, all while toting a toddler on my hip and pulling a pizza from the oven. It’s all in a day’s work!
“Kid Wrangler”, “Mom Hard”, and “Tantrum Slayer” are my Red Baron® Baroness patches and I wear them proudly, with a smile. Because I wouldn’t change a thing about this crazy adventure that is motherhood! It’s not always a “walk in the park”. My stress-induced grey hairs and wrinkles are proof of that. But, I think it’s the best job in the world and I wouldn’t trade it for a million nights of uninterrupted sleep! 🙂
This video perfectly sums up a “day in the life” of a mom and how we are experts at conquering any challenge those kids throw at us!

Any day (no matter the number of child-issued tests) is made much better when I get to see my biggest, little fans sitting around the table enjoying a slice of delicious pizza while laughing about a silly joke daddy told, or even lamenting about how the morning fire drill replaced their beloved recess. My heart is happy when we’re together.
So, now that you know about my patches, I want to hear your stories about how you find humor in the often-hectic moments of motherhood and come out as conqueror! I truly believe that we’re not alone in what we do, my fellow#WingMamas! We can help lift and build each other up, even if it’s just by learning from the experiences of others!
