Did you have a bad week? Maybe lose your patience more than you'd have liked? Serve cereal for dinner? Space on the cupcakes you were supposed to bring for class? Lose your keys?
I wanna hear about it.
Yes, we'll probably laugh at you, but that's the point. Hopefully you'll read a comment from another reader and feel justthismuch better about yourself, and laugh too. We all do it...
So...while reading my comments, one just sorta stood out. From Denise:
This week I let my kids wear their pajamas all day on Monday, I ate 1/2 of their
Easter candy on Tuesday, I bribed my daughter w/ a new movie to get her pictures
taken at school on Wednesday, I forgot to even give them breakfast on Thursday,
and today I listened to my son scream in his crib for 1/2 hour because, darn it,
he NEEDS to take a nap! (or is it that I needed him to take a nap? ... eh, same
So Denise, if it only makes you feel the teensiest bit better, I have a bottle of Basa Body's Coconut Lotion with your name on it. Its organic, not greasy and the coconut smell isn't overpowering - I hope it helps relieve the stress!
NOW...on to my snafu of the week. I still can't believe what a freakin' dolt I am.
After picking up my precious lappy the other day we stopped and ate dinner, then pulled up to the grocery store so I could run in and get a few things. We needed bread, coffee creamer, lunch meat and fruit. Without grabbing a cart, I filled my arms with items and grabbed a few things extra until I couldn't manage one thing more.
In my excitement to be united with my new boyfriend, we headed home...where I promptly set the bags of groceries on the counter and LEFT THEM THERE.
WITHOUT LOOKING AT THE BAGS A SECOND TIME.
The next morning I poured my coffee, went to the fridge for the creamer and did a double take. What the -- OH. NO.
I whirled around to see my groceries sitting right where I left them. Warm.
D'OH! (I guess I'm thankful that the damn dog didn't get into them!)
Got a "Mommy FAIL" of your own from this past week? Share it in a comment - this week I'll pick my fave to win a copy of Jill Sobule's latest album, California Years. You'll love the story - without a record label again, she solicited donations from fans in exchange for "prizes". (A $10 donation got a free digital download of the album after its release, a $10,000 donation got you the ability to lend your vocal talents to a track.) She raised $75,000 in about six week's time and made her album. Click to hear 'San Francisco'.
Confess away...and don't feel bad. We're not perfect, either.
(This giveaway is open until next Friday when I'll announce the winner and next week's prize!)
