Disqualifying myself for Mom of the Year…

actually…I don’t really think I am in the running for that anyway.  😉

Tonight after work, we decided to go out to dinner.  Savannah and I had to be at Brownies at 6, but we decided to be late on purpose.  Today is Sam’s birthday and we wanted to do something special to celebrate, so we went to Red Lobster.  We love Red Lobster…but it just isn’t the same with kids.  It was a delicious meal and we had a great waiter.  The WAIT was a little long.  I think we waited for about 45 minutes for a table.  Anyway…while we were waiting, Jasmin fell off the bench in the waiting room, face down onto the carpet. I saw her falling so I grabbed the back of her pants, but that made her hit face first instead of holding her up…nice.  In a crowded waiting room.  So she was screaming and crying really hard and when she had her mouth open so wide, I saw she had another tooth…then I felt around in there and  realized she has 3 molars!  What the heck?!  When did that happen.  Aren’t good mom’s supposed to know when their kids are getting teeth!?  How did I miss that?  Actually, now that I know that she has more teeth…it really explains a lot of her behavior over the past 3 weeks!  Can you tell I am too busy!?

  1. Hi Julie,
    I still check your blog, and it was great to read something new here. Don’t disqualify yourself as mother of the yr. yet. In my book you are pretty well to the top of the list. That could have happened to anyone. It seems when you were growing up I felt the same way, and thought I didn’t rank very high as a good mother either. I was busy too, but we managed to have quite a few great things going on in our family and lots of fun memories. I think you girls turned out pretty well, at least that is what I hear from compliments people give me about you and Cyndi. So relax, you got a lot going for you. Cobwebs do gather, and dishes don’t always get done on time, and there is an occasional bump or fall with a scraped knee or two besides. But your kids still know you love them I think. Love ya, MOM

  2. So you’re an imperfect mom! Reminds me of the time I had my three kids dressed and ready for school, armed with their homework, backpacks and lunch boxes. I sent them outside to wait for the school bus. They waited and waited and waited. I was so angry and called the school to complain about the service. Oops. Got the message machine reminding me that it was school holiday!

  3. Hi Julie,

    I know the feeling. I was in the nursey and a couple of moms were discussing the number of teeth their children have and then looked at me and wanted to know how many Katie had. I had to pick her up and check her mouth to see. I had no clue!

    Just remember they know we love them and we are doing our best for them and that is what counts!

    Have a great scrapbooking weekend.
