What makes me say this? Well, let me show you. Pictures, after all, ARE worth a thousand words.
**Disclaimer** In my defense...the kids were playing outside on the carport happily, which always makes my heart go pitter pat. They were quiet, and that also makes me happy (though nervous). In retrospect, I do recall Maggie saying something about wanting chips. I was busily texting my entire cast reminding them to wear closed toed shoes for strike today (what? This was IMPORTANT stuff). So, I'm sure when she mentioned chips, I half muttered a response of "mm hmm, ok", or totally didn't answer at all (so Mother of the year qualities), which to her means, YES! Anyway, all I knew was, they were quiet and happy. Texting completed, I stood up to put my show binder away and I hear the sounds of a bag being dumped. Max is REALLLLLLY good at dumping all things bagged.**
I peeked around the corner and this is what I saw........
Two happy kids.
A carport picnic.
Entire bag of doritos ON the dirty carport.
At 8:30 in the morning.
Breakfast of champions.
And I just took a pic and walked away.
'Cause I am awesome like that.
A few minutes later I returned to find them "drunk" on doritos. Look at Max's face. It's a little like Templeton the rat after he ate his "smorgasboard" at the fair. When Max saw me he said "I make big mess".
Indeed you did you little pig pen, indeed you DID!
(Hey, at least Max's hair was totally stylin, still done from yesterday)
Note Maggie, delicately licking her fingers.
When they finally emerged from the chip/concrete coma they were foul. Dorito shmutz covering their entire faces, hands, feet, legs, etc.
But, they were happy.
And therefore, I conclude.........
I am TOTALLY MOTHER OF THE YEAR!
Because letting your kids eat a bag of doritos for breakfast, on the filthy ground is EXACTLY what good mothering is about. ::snort::
I mean...yes I'm awesome!
Motherly awesome yours,
Now, stop judging and just go look at the previous post and all my pics of my happy Halloween kids. In which I really WAS a better Mom.
