Just call me Mother of the freakin' Year!






Yeah. First, the tooth fairy forgets to come. I never did expand on that, did I? Long story short... Nolan wakes up first thing, looks on his window sill and sees his tooth. "MOooooooooooooooooooM!! The tooth fairy FORGOT to come! I ran in there, with a dollar bill clutched in my fist. I said, "Baby, did you look under your pillow??" Thank GOD his answer was, "No, not yet." I reached under his pillow, and opened my fist. He looked under it to find a crumpled up dollar bill. He says, "Oh, I guess she just forgot my tooth." I told him that sometimes the tooth fairy leaves it because some moms (weirdos) like to KEEP their kids teeth. So, there is that.
Fast forward to today. I am downstairs cookin' eggs and toast for breakfast, feelin' pretty darn good about myself since I no longer feed my children a buttload of sugar for breakfast on a regular basis. Then, Nolan (do you think it's always this poor kid since he's the middle child?) says, "Oh, mom! I am so excited to be Star of the Week!" I look over on the counter and see his BLANK poster and BLANK "All About Nolan, sheet." "Crap," I say. I ran into the guest room and started going through pictures and stickers and all the scrapbook crap supplies that I have accumulated but have yet to use. We managed to get something together and it's pretty cute. I then threw on some pants. Had my oversized shirt on with no bra, so I threw on hubby's jacket, did not brush my hair, and jumped in the car. The whole way there I was thinking of Holleeann and praying to God I didn't get in a fender bender in all my glamorousity (Yeah, I know, I made it up, OK??). He made it to school only 10 minutes late, and THAT I was proud of. Nolan was a good sport about it all. He can get pretty stubborn at times, but this morning he was my angel, Thank GOD!
Now, the Princess of the house has been throwing a tantrum for the past half hour, and mommy has been ignoring her. Looks like this 'Mother of the Year' needs coffee. I guess it could be worse. At least I am not Britney.

Ha! I am so with you on this one! you have no idea how Mother of the Year my week was NOT last week.

I think I might be the joke of the office at the kids' school. Did I ever tell you that I forgot about an early day when Isaac was in second grade and left him at school for TWO hours after the bell? That was a shining moment, let me tell you!!

Nice save with the tooth fairly, by the way...

Oh, honey-I have left my kid on an early day, too. But two hours after the bell, that sounds a bit embarrassing! At least they got me on my cell phone and I raced 100 miles an hour to get him. Now, the kid walks home. I am so so glad I am NOT the only one!!

LOL. I have to say that I look MUCH better bald. AND...I wear panties, too. :)
All Moms have had days like this. And if they say they haven't...they are lying.

Glamourosity! Best word EVER. I already use Jill's term "gymalicious," now I'm going to use "glamourosity."

Perhaps on a daily basis.

I'll reference it to you, though. ;)

It didn't even OCCUR to Isaac to go to the office and have them call me at the time. He just sat outside and thought we had forgotten about him. He knows better now. Now he knows that his mom is a ditz and he needs a plan B C D and E.

We all have our minutes, moments, days and years...

Need some chocolate?

Hey Kelly!

I came in by way of Jeannene's blog ... and I have to say that I was ROLLING on the FLOOR laughing WITH you because girl, I have SO BEEN THERE!!! Even forgot the tooth fairy, TWICE ... I was so embarassed. And I've been in the "oversized shirt, no bra, bed head" situation before and ended up having to take my kid IN to the school to his class. THAT was MY shining moment, ROTFLOL!

Hoping you've had some better days ...

xo,
Dana
