I'd like to thank Tequila Sunrises...

The lovely Penz has brightened my week by presenting me with a fitting award, especially considering the crazy-ness of recent weeks:

 src=What did I do to deserve this award? Is it my spaghetti-o dinners? Or how about my crafty coonskin hat? Maybe it's that patch job I did on his blue jeans last week after noticing that a pocket had been completely ripped off by the washing machine? I may never know... but there are a few things I have to do now that I've been recognized for my mad parenting skillz:

1) Admit that ONE thing you feel awful about involving being a mom. Get it off your shoulders. Once you've written it down, you are NO LONGER allowed to feel bad. It's over with, it's in the past. Remember, you're a good mom!

There may have been a few days over the summer when I just could not drag myself out of bed and allowed the young un to eat go-gurt, fruit roll ups, capn crunch and Popsicles as a meals. I'm also pretty sure he didn't do anything but play ds for 12 hours straight on those days.

2)To remind yourself that you ARE a good mom, list SEVEN things you love about your kids, you love doing with your kids, or that your kids love about you. These are the things to remind yourself of EVERY DAY that you rock!
1. I love watching him play games on the wii. He gets so involved and explains every little thing.

2. I love listening to him sing along with the radio on our drives to school.

3. I love that he still turns and waves to me on his walk to school.
4. I love that when I feel bad he'll come snuggle with me or bring me water.
5. I love to watch him play baseball. He'll look over after a big play to make sure I watched.
6. I love to have "our" dinners at Chick-fil-a.
7. I love to hear him laugh.

3)Send this to FIVE other Moms of the Year that deserve forgiveness and a reminder that they, too, are the best moms they can be!!! Remember to send them a note to let them know you've selected them, and add a link to the person who nominated you!
