Why I Won't be Mom of the Year

Top 10 Reasons Why I'll Never Win Mom of the Year in no particular order........

10. I pour Cheerios on the floor to feed my kids a snack so I don't kill them lose my mind. Isabella asks for a bowl and it annoys me. Just eat the darn food off the floor already!

9. I think if you put soap in the bath water it's OK if you skip the whole washing their bodies thing.


8. I listen to my kids play in the morning and don't get them out of be until Isabella calls for me. OK fine, sometimes she has to call me three times before I get out of bed.

7. I have been known to tell Mark to hit his sister back. Hey, the kid needs to learn how to defend himself, right? Today Mark used his head as a battering ram and knock Molly on her butt. It was funny and I laughed.

6. I soooo look forward to bedtime and nap time.


5. I think playgroup is for the mommies not the kids.

4. I soooooo look forward to bedtime and nap time. This really warranted another vote.


3. When toys annoy me they "break."

2. I lie to my kids and I'm not even ashamed of it. I tell Isabella that toys live in the store so they have to stay there.

1. My idea of a perfect vacation does not involve kids. Unless of course you count the fact that I plan to dump them off at Grandma's so Brett and I can go and enjoy an adults only vacation with lots of sex and cocktails. (sorry parents that read my blog)  Who needs Disney? Send us to the beach!

Yup, I'm pretty sure I'll never win Mom of the Year, and I'm OK with that!

  1. Love this post! I think if the Mother of the year "chooser" came and lived at any mother's house for a week they'd do away with the award all together...or just give it to the mother who devises the most creative ways to stay sane. I totally do the soap in the bath water sometimes. Vacation is not really vacation when you bring the kids along--it's a family trip.

  7. This is the FUNNIEST post I've read ALL day! Don't worry - no one will win the Mom of Year Award. And there's nothing wrong with eating cheerios from the floor - they end up there anyway, right?

    I'm following from 'I love my Online Friends Monday Hop' - I hope you'll visit me at the blog I collaborate on: soulfulcoach.com/blog and thenewglasers.com.

    You're hilarious, btw, keep it up!!

  10. I found you through the Follow Me Chickadee blog hop. I love this post and could have totally written it myself. My four year old knows to get his own drink when he wants it and I look forward to nap time each day just so that I can get a break.

  18. Girl you need a vacation - ASAP! I do #8 all the time. I tell people that my daughter sleeps til 9 and my husband makes sure to correct me and tells them no, you sleep til 9 and then go get her. She plays quietly in her room for 45 minutes. Oops!

  21. Ha! This is great! I tell my boys all the time that their "noisy" toys had batteries that can't be replaced. One time use. :) And just yesterday my 4-year-old dumped an entire box of cereal, (ENTIRE box) on the kitchen floor and instead of cleaning it up right away, it became "breakfast" for him and his little brother. You're not alone. ;)

    1. My girls once dumped a loaf of bread and a box of Cheeze-its on the floor of their bed room. I got Mark our of bed and announced that breakfast was served so don't feel bad about that one. I love the idea of a toy that have one time only working batteries. Much easier than my dead batteries that I use to prove to my kids that the toy is broken.

  22. I 'lie' to Little P all the time - usually involving something along the lines of 'so and so is taking a nap' - just so I don't have to drive across town to visit one of her little friends. Bad Mommy.

  23. Ah, now this is a club I can join!! My favorite is how his favorite movies (Cars,etc) are "night night" and can't possibly be watched for the three thousandth time. I think you should continue to add to this list - there's bound to be new ones! :)

    1. That's a god one, I've told that lie too. I think if I'm honest with myself, I could write 100 reasons why I won't be mom of the year.
