Happy Halloween from June Cleaver

In the spirit of Halloween, I am going to be Supermom today and when I say Supermom, I mean June Cleaver, I love that woman and am not comfortable in tights and a cape.  If my son can be GI Joe and my daughter can be Belle, a kitty, Sleeping Beauty, a Cheerleader and a skeleton (it’s changing by the minute) than I should be allowed to take on a new persona.

So what has supermom done so far – Made my family pumpkin pancakes from scratch (well mostly, ignore the canned pumpkin) and cleaned the kitchen – what you wanted more?!  It’s only 10:00 am in California!  You may be saying to yourself, did she come up with this bogus post just to brag about the pancakes – yes, possibly.  As I sit and type my husband is vacuuming – does that mean I have already broken character?

Now for a costume… does supermom wear flannel pants and an old t-shirt?  Does she have dirty hair and flour on her face?  No?  Hmmm… I will work on this – I would love to dress as my idol June Cleaver (without the heels, I am not that tough).  I might have to whip out my sewing machine…  ha ha ha, sorry I was laughing so hard, I had to stop typing, I don’t even own a sewing machine!  But I do have a glue gun and a stolen stapler (sorry, I can’t talk about it, I plead the 5th). 

If supermom aka June doesn’t work out, I will still celebrate Halloween by eating all of my kid’s candy and scarring (yes, that was intentional – scaring AND scarring) people with my off-balance behavior!

How’s your Halloween going?  Have you been a Monster Mommy?  If so, you may be a contender in my Mom of the Year Contest!  The deadline for submission is tomorrow!  Don’t forget, we have a celebrity judge – Lori from In Pursuit of Martha Points is picking the winner.  You can go lobby for yourself at her site, but she is likely out launching an attack on her neighbor’s Halloween decorations today.

Late breaking news – my husband just came in to vacuum this room and told me he started the laundry and cleaned the bathrooms – I guess I am no June Cleaver, back to the drawing board…  Any ideas for me?

    Going trick or treating right now with Nemo and Pinocchio. I was bad mom this year and did not dress up. I have been a witch, a hippie and a bum. Today, I look like a brown m&m in cords and a turtleneck because it’s really cold. I dont’ know what I’m going to do to stuff all those clothes under their costumes so they are warm enough. All I want to do is get buckets of candy and steal from my children. I am in a real chocolate mood. My costume? Bad, boring mom today!!! Let’s toast to June!!

    Mother Hen here.
    Girl, you have a man who does housework — who cares about being June Beaver or Martha Stewhen or whoever!
    Mother Hen is also blessed with a coop-husband, and she isn’t going to break a claw overcompinsating for it either. Honey, sit yourself back down, blog away, and when the neighboure admire your domestic expertise, just say, “Thank you!”
    Indugently yours,
    Mother Hen

      Mother Hen – You have caused an epiphany for this slightly off-balance girl! I will simply appreciate and enjoy! I just need to figure out how to kill my competitive over-achiever side – she is clearly the one causing all the trouble!

    Do you ever recall an episode where she got really upset or seemed lose her mom perfection? I think Wally and Beaver’s parents were robots- especially the Mrs.

    Your husband vacuumed and it was a surprise? I swoon.

    Truth be told Ironic Mom, my husband is more domestic than I am… I am a lucky gorl, but it does make being super mom or super wife, a little harder to pull off.
