Mother of The Year

Last night E. threw a tantrum and wouldn’t eat his dinner because he wanted to eat “andy” (candy cinnamon hearts) instead.  Yes.  My two-year-old is obsessed with candy.  He always asks for “teats” (treats), and most impressively, he will specially request “tic-tacs.”  I have a two-year old who asks for tic-tacs by name…

And, that’s not even the worst of it.

A. was working on a craft before bed and he was cutting something out of construction paper.  He dropped something on the floor and under his breath, with the most perfect inflection, he said, “F*ck.”  My three-year-old.  Yup.  I mostly blame my husband for that one, but I’d be lying if I said I’m not guilty of swearing from time to time.  I wonder how many times he’s said that at daycare…

As I was saying… Mother of the Year.

  1. My kid cursed early on. Either he never did it at daycare or they knew that he had no idea what he was saying, so I never hears about it.

    Mmmm…tic tacs 😉


  2. When one of my boys was five, he told long involved joke for which the punchline was pretty raunchy. He had no idea what he was saying, I have no idea where he even heard it, but we all laugh about it now that he’s 25.


    1. Haha. Well, I just feel bad that he has no idea why it’s a bad word. I guess I should be thankful it’s not a joke…


  3. I laughed out loud when reading this! I have said numerous times that I will *never* win Mother of the Year, having done things like oh…send my kid to camp on the wrong week…listen to them parrot choice words (i.e., above) that I slipped and used out loud…and so on. Eh, it happens. 🙂

    The most important thing I have tried to teach them is that their parents are human and therefore, flawed. The second most important thing I teach them is that nobody expects them to be perfect and therefore, they should never expect someone else to be perfect.


  4. Oh god. If we’re measuring Mother of the Year in swears and a kid’s obsession with candy, I’m afraid I’m going to have to have a SERIOUS conversation with whatever force in the universe felt it would be a good idea to allow me to care for a child…..
