Why I Won’t Win Mother Of The Year

posted by Momo Fali on November 11, 2007

My Mother-in-Law was here for a visit yesterday.

She was working on a crossword puzzle in the other room, when my daughter ran into the kitchen and asked me, “Mom, do you know an eight-letter word for ‘Driving up the wall’? I told Grandma you would know, because you always say we’re driving you up the wall.”

    Ha Ha! The answer is CHILDREN or it could be GRANDMAS, maybe MOMINLAW, or this week BUCKEYES…pick your posion. 🙂

    I didn’t see the Buckeye’s game, but saw the highlights afterwards. What’s up with all of the interceptions? Next week is Michigan right? My favorite game of the year… 😀

    Children…maybe. But, not mominlaw or grandmas! My Mom-in-Law drove two hours to babysit my kids so I could go watch the Buckeyes lose (aka: The Suckeyes), then she drove two hours home last night. I got lucky when Mothers-in-Law were handed out!

    Too funny! If we were only all as perceptive and honest as kids were… actually, no, I take that back. Let’s leave that to the kids. Cuteness can be forgiven.

    Haha. When I ask my husband to look after the baby so I can take care of some task then he’s right at my feet. I always say get out of mommy’s hair! Maybe I should stop that as it might come back to bite me someday!

    This serves as a good reminder for me to stop talking smack about other people in front of my kids. You never know when it will come back to haunt.

    My mom is in town right now, and I’m glad my kid can’t talk and repeat the things we’ve said.
