The competition is getting fierce for the MOTYs (Mama of the Year Awards). As usual I was a perfect wife and mother (and daughter and friend) this week. Here are just a few examples of my exemplary mothering showcasing why I deserve this
I did NOT laugh and oblige Logan when he begged for a band-aid on his nose after he banged it (though it was not bleeding thereby not worthy of a band-aid according to our family rules) just because I thought it would be a cute photo op.
I did NOT buy both Jack and Logan new rather expensive Sigg bottles (though they already have two each) in an effort to get them to drink more water. I mean really, who needs expensive gadgets to get their kids to drink the most natural thing on the planet.
After writing about how anti-Happy Meals I am, I did NOT let my husband take the boys to McD0n@lds for dinner so I could get a couple minutes of peace and quiet.
We give time-outs at our house and their length is based on the age of the person getting the time-out. So Logan gets 2 minutes and Jack gets 3. Recently, Scott told the boys I had a time-out (because I needed a bit of a break). I did NOT jokingly called out to my husband, "I get 34 minutes, right?" He gave me a quizzical look. Apparently I had forgotten that I am not 34 years old.
Upon hearing that the new girl at Jack and Logan's school fell and possibly broke her arm, I did NOT ask whether or not my boys were anywhere near her at the time she fell. (They were not.)
