So many kids, I don't know what to do.

_________ of the Year - NOT!

I was pondering all the things I did this week that would disqualify me from my usual Mother of the Year Award. I thought to make me feel better I would like to hear all your failures. I didn't want to limit it to just mothers though. I would like to hear shortcomings in all areas.

So tell me why you are NOT going to be ______________ of the Year - at least according to this weeks performance. Maybe you are not going to be Exercise Queen of the Year, or Employee of the Year, Gardener, Coach.....the list goes on and on.

Since we all need to feel better about our failures I thought I would turn this into a link-up, a linky, a parade., a whachamacalit. I am new...give me a break.

So record your failures and then link up.

Here is why I am NOT going to be Mother of the Year
1. I took Saigie to the doctor and she needed an antibiotic which I forgot to pick up from the pharmacy for two days.

2. I spent all my allowance on these cool shoes instead of on the kids this week. (Hey. It is MY allowance.)

3. An entire child was lost under the laundry I didn't do this week. For days.

4. I took Tayte for a walk in the stroller and when he wanted to the opposite direction (farther from home) I told him we could not go that way. Of course he said, "And whhhyyyyy nooooot?" and I replied. "There are monsters that way." (He is not scared of monsters...even I would not have said that if he were.

5. At this very moment Shaye Baby is eating Cheerios off of the floor and I am not even trying to stop her.

Ok. Your turn. (This Link up thingy will begin working at midnight tonight (I hope) I am going to go ahead and post this so you will have time to think.)

I don't have a button, but if you wouldn't mind linking back to my blog that would be cool.


  1. I'm your newest follower! Stopping by from Blog Hop Friday!

  2. Hilarious! I'll have to think of some of my own...I am following you from the Blog Hop.

    Right now I can definitely get an award for this one...

    I am not going to get an award for Mother of Year because instead of making my daughter's baby food, I've been blogging for the last hour. Green beans for her again :)


  3. Okay- I am not going to be teacher of the year- because I cuss out kids- :) Really- I am not going to get the wonderful, genteel mother award, because when my four year old told me that she was "kicking my ass" at playing Memory- all I could do was laugh!

  4. Too funny! I loved your post!
    Fab shoes! Love them!
    Thank you so much for your wonderful comments!!
    Have a fantastic weekend!

  5. The shoes were worth every penny you spent! Fab-u-lous!!!

    Cheerios off the floor taste the same. No problem!

  6. Those shoes are . . . divine. It was worth it.

    I will not get the Laundress of The Year Award, well because obviously . . . I haven't lost a small child under there, but we did find a lost bookbag in the mountain, so that was a win.

    I also will not get Mother of the Year because if you saw my blog, I said my eldest daughter is easily fooled and this works great in situations. I lie to her all the time. It's an easy way to get her to do my bidding.

    Great post by the way.


I always like to know someone is listening!
