Mom of the Year....

So, as the end of the year quickly approaches.....I'm confident that I'm a top contender for the coveted position of "Mom of the Year."

What other Mom turns her back for...you know, cleaning in another room....only to return to a quiet 3 year old, who is content to make himself an indoor sandbox out of the ashes in the fireplace? Hello....I'm gonna win.






So...when Mom of the year sees this mess of the year, what does she do? scold him? no. She is completely understanding of his desire & creativity toward creating an indoor sandbox. Why, isn't he resourceful?
...and you know...she grabs her camera. Snaps some shots, & tosses his little toosh in the tub. Mad dash for the broom, Swiffer, and vacuum while he was playing with Noah's ark in the tub. Got the whole mess cleaned up before he got bored with the bubble bath!

Not surprising...but this is NOT his first time to pull this stunt. He did it....last year too. You would think that I'd learn...but like I said, I'm really shooting for Mom of the Year this time.

LOL - this is one (of many) reason why our fireplace is essentially a dust-bunny-hut. The house is 8 years old and no one has EVER built a fire in the fireplace - it is still as new as the day it was installed!

And this picture simply seals the deal.

Say it ain't so! LOL! It's almost like the time we were on vacation. I took my eye off of big boy to..ahem.. record myself (you know you have to have commentary when recording your family vacation). Only big boy dumped a whole bucket of the prettiest white sand I'd ever seen on his head. Take care! Merry Christmas!

Oh no! My son used to put his matchbox cars in the vent hole of the wood burning stove. Hus spent hours retrieving those melted cars which produced toxic smells when the tires melted.

Lainey - Here is what DOES make you mom of the year: The way you handled the situation. Most moms would freak out...scold their child with whatever form of punishment is used in the household....scream...etc., etc. You? You are awesome. I wouldn't even have been surprised if you decided to join him in playing in the "sandbox"....because you ARE that COOL!

This is amazing. My Gage did the EXACT SAME THING Tuesday. Hmm, are these two talking on the phone and plotting together?
