Mother of the Year Award goes to...

ME! I get the mother of the year award. You may ask yourself, how does this dysfunctional mother of four, who has a muddy t-shirt, ripped shorts and uncombed hair get the award. I will tell you. It isn't easy, and I wouldn't get it, if it weren't for my four young kids.




I am not receiving this award because of the fun activities I do with my kids, or for the many books I read to them. Or even the fact that I attempt to feed them healthy, well yeah most of the time. I bathe them, and take them to different activities. I have enriched their lives with friends and love. None of these things can compare to what earns me the award tonight.


Lets back track to Friday night. Kids went trick or treating and got way too many treats. With just two I feel I had a lot more control over the candy. Well with four, and all running in different directions, sometimes I can't catch them all nor keep track of where the candy is going, I know not a trait of an award winning mom.


So when T-Rex would come to me with a wrapped, chewed piece of candy I wasn't surprised. I just took it out of his mouth and threw it away. I have been wary about the fact that he is putting plastic wrappers in his mouth. A huge choking hazard, I know and should be more careful, well I thought I was.


Well tonight we had some friends over for a brief moment. There was chaos to say the least, and candy being taken out from the high "hiding" places. I was showing my friend something on line and her husband was in with the kids, when I was informed that T-Rex had swallowed, or rather chewed and swallowed a whole Hershey Kiss, wrapper and all. He, my friend's husband, commented that he should be fine but don't be surprised to find a wrapper in his diaper. What a foreshadowing moment.

So they leave, we have dinner and I put Two and T-Rex in the shower. I grabbed their jammies, when Two started yelling "T pooped in shower." Followed by G-Man laughing "there are a ton of wrappers in there. T pooped wrappers."


I thought you got to be kidding me. I come back to the shower and low and behold there was a shower with several plastic wrappers and BM. I just laughed. And realized if this doesn't win me an award I don't know what else will.


And for your viewing pleasure, the evidence. After I rinsed a little bit, not fun to clean up. Man T-Rex two in one day!

That is so funny. I remember when I found a polly pocket shoe in Hayden's poop when he was about 9 months, that is when Polly pockets were outlawed at my house. You are doing a great job at motherhood, hang in there.

I think that when Erma Bombeck died, she reincarnated into you!!! (Except that she died after you were born and I don't believe in reincarnation) So, if you don't write a book about these Mommy moments one day, the world will truly be missing out on some good chuckles...!
