If…. You are a Better Mom Than Me

motherof theyearIf you proudly wear your child’s painted macaroni necklace for longer than five minutes… you’re a better mom than me.

If you happily wipe your four year old’s bum when he poos to make sure he doesn’t leave any “track”s… you’re a better mom than me.

If you cherish and store each and every art work created by your little darlings, never tossing even the barest and strangest of scribbles… you’re a better mom than me.

If your child has a bath/shower more frequently than once a week every other day… you’re a better mom than me.

If you enjoy chauffeuring kids to after school activities… you’re a better mom than me.

If one of your children wants to add in another after school activity and you say no problem… you’re a better mom than me.

If you remember a head of time to pack the appropriate snacks for those after school drives… you’re definitely a better mom than me.

If your child has their own small pet like a hamster or a mouse, snack or lizard or anything in the reptile family…. you are a better mom than me.

If your house is tidy, homework’s done and dinner is on the table by the time your husband walks through the door… you are a better mom than me.

If you laugh at all 100 and 99 of your child’s original knock knock jokes.. “Knock, knock, who’s there?  Banana, Banana Who?  Cause it’s an orange.”.. you’re a better mom than me.

Want to play along?  Just leave your “you’re a better mom than me” quote in the comments.

  2. Love this!!!! I don't know any mom who "happily" wipes her child's butt!!

    Let's see....

    If you never check your e-mail while your kids are in the middle of telling you a story of something that happened at are a better mom than me.

    If you happily allow your children to help you cook dinner every night without completely losing your are a better mom than me.

    If your husband comes home from work and lays on the sofa, complaining about how tired he is while you've been fighting with the kids to do their homework while trying to get dinner ready and you don't smash him upside the head with a frying are definitely a way better mom than me.

  3. Love this! Here's mine:

    If you hate it when it's time for your kids to go to bed.....then you're a better mom than me!

  4. I can so relate to this list! So glad I'm not the only one who's not the perfect mom. I love the email one above. I'm especially guilty of that.

  5. If you don't roll your eyes, absently nod your head and mumble "um, hum" over and over while your talkaholic daughter chatters away at you, you're a better mom than me.

    If you don't want to toss your 18 month old out the window when she wakes up at 3am and refuses to go back to seep until 5, you're a better mom than me.

    If you don't tell your kids they'll end up on that show Beyond Scared Straight if they don't behave and listen to you, you're a better mom than me.

    If you don't go into your kid's rooms with a big ol' hefty garbage bag after you drop them at school to do the old toy purge, you're a better mom than me.

    If you bought your kids anything better than Target furniture because they can't take care of their shit and don't want to waste money on the good and expensive stuff, you're a better mom tha me.

    If your child's hair is perfectly coiffed every single school day, you're a better mom than me.

    If you've never gone to bed with a sink full of dishes, left the clothes in the dryer and toys on the floor after a rough day, you're a better mom than me.

  6. If ya make it though a visit with the grandkiddos a day on the Ponderosa without usin' the word 'Stupid' and bein' reminded that, "oh Grandma...that's a bad word and Mama doesn't allow us to say that!!!"
