The Stoned Photographer Pt I

I am a photographer, but at this current point in life I am devoting my time to running the house and pursuing other interests (like this blog!). Nonetheless, I wanted to share some photography of mine from the last several years. I have so many images that I love for personal reasons, it will take several posts to share them all.  For today here is a sampling of images I use for my portrait portfolio. *Easter egg: one of The Stoner Mom’s kids is shown, as well as Stoner Mom’s...

A peek inside The Stoner Mom’s pantry

No, not panties. God. What is wrong with you? PANTRY. (I have typed panty instead of pantry way too many times). I know I promised to focus on organization this month, and while there isn’t that much left of October 2014, I’d still like to share my favorite tips for organizational success. Today I’m letting you peeping toms take a peek at how I organize my kitchen with kids in mind. I’m a nosy girl and love checking out how other people organize their lives, hopefully some of you are the same way. A quick note on Stoner Mom’s...

Scheduling for Stoners

Tackling the Pothead Fog: Scheduling for Stoners This month on The Stoner Mom, I am focusing on organization and how it can vastly improve your parenting and personal life. You know the saying, failing to plan is planning to fail, and this holds true for me. As a Pisces and a stoner, it’s very easy for me to get off track, off schedule, off routine, forget why the hell I walked into the room, etc. That’s the beauty of scheduling. If you sit down and make all the decisions about how to live your day, for the rest of...

Weed Review Wednesday: Tangerine Kush

Tangerine Kush | STRAIN REVIEW Indica Tangerine Haze x Rare Dankness Tangerine Kush is an indica dominant hybrid made for relaxation. With its chatty and euphoric high and body-heavy haze, Tangerine Kush is a great cannabis strain for entertaining. It’s probably pretty clear by now that The Stoner Mom does not regularly consume indicas. I am really sensitive to anything that might make me a wee bit drowsy, and drowsiness + parenting = worst day ever. Tangerine Kush is a middle road indica that doesn’t quite knock you out, but definitely mellows you out. Beautifully hued with many bright orange pistils,...

The problem with going to Target stoned

The Problem with Shopping at Target while Stoned I went to Target this morning to pick up a few things. I needed: syrup for coffee coffee beans milk eggs yogurt I made sure to be mega stoned beforehand, because I hate shopping, and running into people, and making small talk. An introvert with a hideous case of social anxiety- that’s me. How long would that trip take a normal person? I don’t know. I found myself examining a product called “the selfie kit”. I stared at phones, though I don’t need a phone, and in fact am waiting for my...

Hitting as hard as the literary giant, Moby Dick is a top sativa choice for this well read Mommy.

Eight Easy Ways to be a Responsible Stoner Parent

Responsible Stoner? Not an Oxymoron. Amendment 64 gave us the right to blaze up for pleasure in addition to medical reasons,  in our homes. That includes *gasp* caregivers of children. Sometimes known as parents. Colorado parents rejoice, but only in a private non-showy way, because the legality of the stuff does NOT make you immune to reports to DHS (Denver Human Services). Before you protest, think about any child abuse case featuring alcohol abuse and then agree that having strict child protection measures in place is an asset to a community. Just like your stupid guns in Walmart, your right to...

Weed Review Wednesday: Mazar I Sharif- to sleep, to dream, to get stoned

  Mazar I Sharif is a 100% indica, with some sativa like characteristics, famous for its hash capabilities and double duty head and body high.  Named after the northern Afghanistan region it hails from, Mazar I Sharif has a powerful narcotic effect and is an excellent choice for pain relief, depression, and insomnia. Unlike the typical sativa strains I normally recommend, Mazar I Sharif is my choice for when I don’t want to get anything done. Uplifting but physically relaxing, this is the one for nights in with the husband.  Energy: Typical of an indica, Mazar I Sharif put me to...

In addition to the four children running around the home, The Stoner Mom also has two furry children. Here they are. Maximilian Bonaparte is the 108 pound, youthful, defender of our home. A St. Bernard/Husky mix and on guard 24/7. He tries so hard to be gentle with the kids, but he does sometimes forget his size and thwacks a kid in the eyeball with his tail. Oh Max. This is the Archduchess Katya, our two-year old Siberian who essentially rules the roost. Clearly she is the mastermind of Max’s many adventures in the trash can. You can almost...

Wake and bake

Wake and bake: the best way to start the day Morning y’all. Let me describe my favorite morning ritual, one I get to play out on the weekends. No alarm, I wake up by my exceedingly handsome husband placing a cup of coffee on my bedside table. Sometimes his youngest (girl, aged 2) is with him so I hear adorable toddler banter.  Other times it is just him, and he takes the moment to squeeze me in inappropriate places. Both scenarios are quite enjoyable. Anyhow, he leaves to tend to the children and I am free to grab the bong stashed...

What Mom is Up to When She Smokes Weed

One of my favorite things to do while smoking weed… sitting holed up in my basement office, shivering and on my computer.  Disguised as “work”, it is really time alone on Pinterest, listening to something sultry on Spotify, phone by my side alerting me of the texts that are simultaneously popping up on my computer. I am always reachable, connected, available for those who love me. I listen to my sultry music through my husband’s fancy headphones, silencing the sounds of my him and the son playing Minecraft late at night. Mothers, and fathers, and all those people chin...
