Mother of the Year

In the spirit of keepin' it real... I thought I'd share some of the less glamorous moments from a not so "super Mom"...

** Upon being woken up by Tyler at one point last week - an hour before the 4:30 alarm... I may or may not have yelled at his sweet little face... I immediately felt bad, but Mommy is running on energy fumes these days and that hour would have made a slight difference.

** After finishing talking with John one night on the phone... for whatever reason (and really no one will ever know) I put the home phone in the fridge for the night. I'm pretty sure that I didn't need anything from the fridge and wasn't putting anything else in there when I did it... but it certainly made me laugh the next morning.

** I may or may not have begged the dog to feed a baby once or twice... and when she didn't do it... glared at her for going right back to snoring.

** I considered the opportunities of starting a Starbucks delivery service for new parents... and patenting a system for providing Starbucks intravenously. (If anyone does come out with either of these - I'm totally suing because it was MY idea first!)

** I contemplated letting my child be stinky and oily instead of giving him a bath - just to get a few extra minutes to sit and relax.

** I got a little weepy while listening to the radio on several occasions - because I was over-tired.

And the worst one?!

** I literally packed EVERYTHING for the boys on Thursday to take to the sitter... but completely neglected to send formula for James. Nice, right?! The boys can't eat the same stuff either... but thank God for Ms. Amanda - she never said a word and just went and picked up some formula for my little man. Oooooooh, the guilt!

So, that's it in a nutshell... and we're back at it again - but once again Tyler isn't cooperating. He thought that 3:45 was a great time to wake up to play, chat, and smile at us this morning.

I literally may not survive this...
