Mother of the Year Award
.....And the award goes to...... NOT ME!
Reasons I will NOT get the Mother of the year award:
1: The word "no" is said more than any other words I say.
2: I threaten and don't follow through(most of the time).
3: I am the most happy when they are sleeping.
4: Bribery is my best weapon.
5: Use my bathroom time as a way of an escape.
6: My computer time is waaay longer than theirs.
7: I count the days (and sometimes hours) until they start school.
8: I do a dance on the first day of school (when they leave of course).
9: I act in a most embarrassing way (according to my teenage daughter) though I'm not sure what I've done
10: Kiss and hug my kids in public.(that might explain #9)
11: I overuse the word "maybe" to get them off my back until I say no.
12: I use food as an emotional band aid.
13: Make my kids do chores even when they complain.
14: Expect them to take responsibility for their behavior.
15: THE WORST OF ALL --- Make them say "sorry" to the person they hurt.
