I am so not winning the Mother of the Year Award this year.
Because I am not working, I am at home and my kiddo is not here. Yup, that's right. I took him into day care even though I am not flying the friendly skies today.
Why would I do such a horrible thing? Why would a wonderful mother like me decide to pack her kiddo up, drive to someone else's house, kiss Bjorn sweetly, tell him 'Mama will be back in 7 hours!' and then drive back home?!
Because I had my Swap It If You Got It Clothing Swap last night, and the house is covered in clothes, shoes, purses, and all sorts of snacky foods and drinks. Oh yeah, and because I drank way more than I am used to (here's to not really breast feeding anymore!!!), Mama has a little bit of a headache.
Ok, a big honking headache. And my tummy isn't doing too well, either.
And I figure - hey, we pay for a full week of daycare even if we don't use it. Might as well use it when I need it. Even if it's only because I need a break and a nap.
So I'll be returning my Mother of the Year crown now. You can give it back to me next week when I'm up all night with him and don't lose my patience. Deal?
