When I first had Little Pumpkin Doodle I felt that I did everything wrong. In fact, I remember taking her to the store and watched another mom click her baby’s carrier into a shopping cart and thought duh! that’s how you’re supposed to do it. I realized that a couple of days prior, I hadn’t clicked LPD’s carrier into the shopping cart and LPD could have fallen to the ground.
I was in awe of women that had more than one child with them at the store; the mother seemed cool, calm and collected and left me feeling like a failure. And most recently, I’ve read other blogs and admired pictures of women looking perfect, with perfect hair, home and children, thinking, who are you kidding, I know it’s all a facade!
Life isn’t perfect and neither am I. Sure, there are times when I look like the mom that has it all together. I’m dressed cute, hair and make up are done, carrying the designer diaper bag that looks like a purse, and LPD looks like she stepped out of the pages of a baby Gap ad, but let’s face it, as parents not only have you had melt downs, but so have your kids. That’s why I thought it would be fitting to add the Mommy said what?!? category to Mommy’s Organics, enjoy!
A few months ago, LPD and I were driving to see Tante (French for aunt) Lisa and a car cut me off on the freeway, and without thinking I yelled, “YOU FREAKING MORON!” I looked back and LPD didn’t seem to notice; she continued to look at her book and was oblivious to whole situation.
About a week later we’re on our way to the library when a car cut me off, but this time I was more cautious and said, OOPS!, and LPD quickly responded saying, “YOU FREAKING MORON, YOU FREAKING, YOU FREAKING MORON!”
Now, I know it was completely my fault that LPD said what she did, and that I have to be more careful, but I’m sorry, it made me laugh!
I didn’t acknowledge her saying it, instead I said, “the other car went oops,” and asked her if she wanted to listen to “Wheels on the bus.”
Before you judge, remember, I’m not perfect and neither are you
Hope you have a great week! Have you had a Mommy said what?!? moment? If so, I’d love to hear from you.
