Mother of the Year

Just thought I'd let you know, I am definitely up for the coveted Mother of the Year Award. I know, you probably thought you had it in the bag, let me tell you about events this morning that will swing the vote for the award my way.

T.S.: Mom, when are we going to bake the Halloween cookies? (the kind with the pumpkin already on them)

Me: Let me eat breakfast first.

T.S.: No, we have to cook them now. That's what I'm having for breakfast.

They are baking as we speak. Yes, I let my child eat cookies for breakfast.
I know, you are petitioning now to have my "Mommy Button" taken away--I could hear the gasps as you read that I let my kid eat cookies for breakfast. Don't pretend--you know you've done it once or twice, too.
