(Fridays are usually my day off, but we are in a rush to get a project finished)
She said "I'm super starving mommy"
I said "Hold on just one more minute"
She said "O.K. 1 !! There, I counted to 1 mommy"
I said "That is not what I meant!"
(and I did the mom shush, wave, go away signal with my hand)
I must have been so enthralled with my email to not notice that she had slipped out of the kitchen and upstairs into my bed, where Sponge Bob awaited.
This was her self made pre-breakfast snack
|Saltines and Reese's Pieces|
Breakfast of a 5 year old Champion
-or -a 5 year old 'deprived by her mom' little girl
-or- an Extraterrestrial that goes by the name E.T.
I smile, and go into my bedroom to get dressed.
She must have heard me mumbling, or decided to come back in to finish her episode of Sponge Bob.
~but I have caught her practicing a very dramatic eye roll in the mirror. So not sure how much longer I will have sunshine. I see the rain clouds forming already. I have to remember to thank my older girls for teaching her that.~
Oh, I can't lie. She probably learned it from me.I am the QUEEN of eye rolling. I started young with my parents, then teachers(only when they weren't looking) and now my poor husband gets the eye roll at least 5 times a day, if not more. I will still blame my daughters though!
Anyway, how could I go on with the rest of my morning knowing that little peanut butter candy's were floating around in her stomach, bobbing up and down in a sea of saltines.
~Is it just me, or does anyone else think of saltines ONLY as a Morning Sickness Meal???~
My 15 year old daughter loves Saltines, and requested I buy them. She is also obsessed with Teen Moms on MTV.
That's it. Her and J-Man are breaking up this instant!!! Overreaction??
O.K. I will calm down
They are just Saltines!
O.K. So back to my mom of the year story; one that will surely go on to win a Mom of the Year contest in Good Housekeeping or Family Circle
or Jailhouse Mom's.
As long as I win!!
|"Thank you Mama! You are the best Mom in the WHOLE ENTIRE UNIVERSE!!!!"|
(she did not really say that. But it's only because her mouth was full, and I have taught her to not talk with food in her mouth. She was definitely thinking it though!)
Then we sat outback enjoying the warm weather we have been blessed with lately, and I ignored her some more while I read the Hunger Games.
Don't worry I made her lunch.
