Mother of the Year and a Photo Tag

Upon leaving the house today I was quite disgusted to see that it was snowing. Not just a little....tons of fluffy most people think it is beautiful snow. See, the problem is I HATE snow. Hate it. With a passion. I know I don't have a lot to complain about because we did not get much and know some of you out there in blogland have had to dig your cars out of your driveway. Even just an inch of snow is enough to turn me into one of those assholes who drive 20mph on the highway. I know. Most of you hate people like me.

After I slid down my driveway barely missing the trash thingy at the bottom and spun my wheels out to make it up the road (really, do I really need a little light on my dashboard telling me I am sliding....duh) the kids and I were on our way. 25 seconds later I remember that my ID to get me on the base where my kids go to daycare is in my gym bag. Sigh. Being that I pretty much never go to the gym (which is also on base, and free so I really should go) I forgot to take it out of my bag and put it back in the car.

Here is where Mother of the Year comes in.....of course I cannot get up my driveway and I'm not about to drag the kids out of the car and back into the house just to run in and grab my badge. I'm also not about to leave my kids in a running car on the side of the road....come on now, I don't REALLY want someone to take them. What I did do is turn the car off (making my children suffer the agony of being in a car with no DVD playing) Lock them in and tell them mommy had to run inside quickly and I would be right back. I'm sure they enjoyed the entertainment of mommy almost busting her ass on the driveway both up and back down.

Pass me my Mother of the Year trophy. I always swore I would never leave my kids in the car but today, the forces of the universe won.

On to the photo tag---I have actually been waiting on this one to come my way. I was photo tagged by fellow Buckeye mommyofm's to do the following:

1) Choose the 4th folder where you store your pictures on your computer

2) Select the 4th picture in the folder

3) Explain the picture

4) Tag 4 people to do the same

So here we have....................

Pierce and a school friend. This was in May of 2007 so he would have been 3 and a half....this park is right up the street from us and the kids' daycare does their family picnic there each year. I wish I had a good explanation for the random look on his face (mine is the one in the hat) but sadly....he probably just heard that he had to stop playing and eat lunch or something. And that hat.....It was size 12-18 months and it took me a loooooong time to convince him that it did not fit anymore. So...all this time waiting on this tag to come my way and the photo was not really any fun.

I'm going to tag
Matt at My Side of the Story
Kelly at A Day in the Chapin Life--it will give her something to do and she needs to make some blog friends
Susan in the Psych Ward
and Sarah

Have fun kids. Oh, one more thing before I hit the button.....Francesca told me I should make a perma link to my Tale of the Goose and the Queen. I'm going to go ahead and do that since I am quite convinced I will never ever come up with something so fabulous again in my entire life

17 people fed my need for attention:


Snow is such a novelty here - I'm sure we'd all be driving 20mph if if actually snowed. lol!

Just my luck my photo will be something that should have been deleted long ago - a half closed eye, making me look high as a kite - or some such nonsense. Off to see....


Adorable shot! I want some snow here, dammit!! And the kids lived... so you did good!!!

Jenny and the Princess Peonies

I hate snow too...

Kristina P.

That picture is so funny! And I don't mind the snow if I don't have to be in it.


Ok, I know I have done that before... no shame in it!

I am so sick of snow, winter, the whole shebang. All I keep thinking about is how I can't wait not to have to worry about gloves, hats, boots, coats.

Team Och

I love snow just as long as I'm not driving in it. And yes, those stupid skid lights on the dashboard are insulting...like you can't tell when your car is careening across an icy road.
Anyway, thanks for being so sweet.


Yeah, I'm not happy when it snows either. Now because of all the snow we had, we're now dealing with flooding. Fun times, fun times!


Good Lord woman! I'm calling DCFS RIGHT NOW! LMAO!

Thanks for the Tag... (I think).

Later Tater


I hate snow, cold weather, all of it!
I left my girl in the car once, maybe twice, no trauma . . . to her!! My mother of the year trophy only got tarnished just a little bit ~
Great photo
