My friend Lindsay and I always joke about how we should be mom of the year. Here is my nomination speech as to why I should be nominated as Mom of the Year for 2008!
Day 1 - While driving home from my parent's house on New Years Day, we stopped for lunch at none other than the Texas Stop Sign. SD is not real big on fast food, but she loves her some french fries. So as we were sitting there eating, I look up to realize that she has transitioned from dipping her french fries in BG's gravy to eating with a spoon! Nice nutrition!
Halloween- Did not have any pumpkins to carve, not one! Did not even put out fake pumpkins on the front porch! Nice!
Grooming- while cutting Linus' fingernails, I thought it would be a good idea to not only snip his nails, but also snip three of his fingertips! The worst one was his thumb and it would not stop bleeding, so I put a band-aid on it. When I got back from my run, I thought he had chocolate all over his face and bib, but I was wrong. He had sucked the injured thumb resulting in the bleeding to not stop, but instead to soak through the band-aid and get all over his face! Thankfully I didn't have to explain the new tricked up bandage to any day care workers, only Nana!
