Challenge

One of my favorite bloggers (and people) has thrown down the gauntlet...

We've decided to have a little contest. A Mother of the Year contest.

And by Mother of the Year...
We mean stuff like mistaking chocolate chips for poop.
Not getting picture of the little darlings until after trick-or-treating.
Deciding to take a nap.
Or letting your kids eat "Chicken in a Biskit" for breakfast.

Rules are simple...
Post a link to your favorite "Mother of the Year" story - yours or someone elses - in the comments. If you don't have a blog, but would like to play, e-mail me the story and I'll post it. December 1st, we'll read though and determine the "winner" - I mean, we're all winners, aren't we? The only thing - it had to happen in 2006. Have fun. Life wouldn't be any fun if we were all perfect...

Reading the stories will be a highlight! I have slammed the breaks in the parking lot to get a child to put on their seatbelt. I have let a kid run off and ignored them. Ethan's lunch last Saturday was eating peanut butter out of the jar, with a butter knife, while sitting on the counter. I really needed to finish the 2007 calendar for the grandparents! Now I don't feel nearly as guilty though.
