Update: Mother of the Year Contest

I am supposed to announce a winner tomorrow for Mother of the Year Contest, but I am feeling a little behind.  You too?  Good, I was afraid it was just me.  I am postponing this pivotal moment in history until next Tuesday.  This conveniently allows for Halloween-gone-wrong submissions.  So, tell me your worst best.

And what could make this contest even greater???  Clearly, not the prize.  BUT, Lori from In Pursuit of Martha Points has graciously agreed to be a guest judge.  Who better than this Martha Stewart lovin’, points keepin’ gal to dole out the biggest honor of the year?  But don’t let her wit and craftiness intimidate you, I daresay she’s refreshingly real and a little off-balance.

So there is nothing stopping you!  This is your chance to win the accolades you deserve!  If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know from my confessions that there is no judgement here and extra points are given for being off-balance!

    “Beep. Beep. Beep.” What’s that you say? Eh, just the bus that I’m backing up…over myself. “Eh Hehm” {clearing throat}… 1.) Caitlyn, age 16 mos…ate one of my birth control pills. I gave her the pack thinking that it was harmless as they were all ‘completely sealed’ and totally ‘kid proof.’ Wrong. Called poison control. Lady laughed at me and told me to make sure she drank lots of fluids. Sure. Husband thought it was a little early to get our girl on the pill. Neat. 2.) At the park right next to the parking lot. Caitlyn in the jogging stroller, not buckled in. Stopped for a moment to greet our dog running across the park. Forgot to secure brake on stroller. She rolled…into the parking lot, tipped over, not too much damage. Mom, on the other hand, sat on the curb and cried. ‘Great job “mom”.’ 3.) I didn’t read the ridiculously small sign on the bottom of the sign in sheet on the last day of school that read ‘parents please arrive 30 mins prior to end of class for celebration with your children.’ Super. I showed up 5 mins prior to the end of school to notice EVERY OTHER PARENT delightfully rejoicing with their said child as mine sat at the kid-sized-table, lonesome, picking at a cupcake. Awesome. 4.) And most recent. Rushing around last Friday, getting kids ready in time for morning carpool that I am in charge of. Herd the kittens into school only to realize that every. single. kid. is in black and orange in celebration of Halloween prior to Fall break. Except. Mine. Outstanding! Of course! Derrrr!

    I’m not sure about judging this contest now.

    I believe I’ve inhaled my uvula.
