Mom of the Year

So, in an effort to ensure transparency, I think it's probably a good idea for me to display some evidence of my fallibility as a mother.  I mean, after all, those moments are few and far between.

*snort*  Right.
Anyway, yesterday, the girls and I were driving back from errand running and I got cut off by a woman who wasn't paying much attention to her driving.  I tapped on the horn quickly to give her the heads up.

And from the back of the car, I hear a little voice pipe up indignantly,

"DUDE!"   I cracked up.  Then she continued,

"The freakin' guy is driving all stupid!" 

Oh dear me.  Dear, dear me. 

Apparently, she not only hears me when I mutter, but can pull those words out at completely fitting moments. Kind of amazing.

Annnnd, it's back to mommy jail for me. 


  1. that's just all kinds of fun!

  2. HAHA! I told this story at playgroup this morning but left out your name in an effort to protect your reputation. HAHA!

  3. I love this!!! The old saying of do as we do not as we say is so true with kids. I realize that more and more every day.

  4. Hey, it could have been worse! The words could have been much more colorful - so you ARE a good mommy 'cause Bean didn't use any of those words. :)

  5. I just read this to Josh... he thought it was as funny as I did! :) I can't wait until our little one can talk and we can start laughing at all the things he or she has to say. So amazing. :)
