Mom of the Year

Can I just say that I love this post! I am guilty of wishing I was more "mom of the year". I am so not perfect and this post is such a good reminder that most moms are more like me than I ever imagined. We do what we need to do to make it through each day. Some days are better than others. Some days, we make it out the door all clean and matching. Some days, we stay in our pj's until it is time to put on new pj's for bed. But, at the end of each day, our children are loved and that is all that really matters.

A few thing that knock me out of contention for mom of the year...
My children have had cookies and candy for breakfast on more than one occasion this year. My only requirement, they drink milk with it. Milk makes everything healthy.

Last night, I gave them each Benedryl for "allergies" they had before bedtime. I don't know how the fell asleep so early and so fast. Note the extreme sarcasm.

I did not have a working lighter to light Will's birthday candles.
I had to send my husband next door to get one so that we could sing "Happy Birthday". Picture all the families standing around looking at me... not my finest moment.

Once again, an event has gone by and I have one picture.

Have a great Monday. We finally have much needed rain here and I am loving it!


  1. I had to do a hunt to even FIND the candles - I was so disorganized for this birthday party, but it all came together in the end! :)

  2. I just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you today (July 15th) and saying a prayer for you and little Ben. Keep us updated on the surgery and recovery!

  3. I hope everything went smoothly for Ben today. I have been saying lots of little prayers. If I can do anything let me know.
