Real Moms

I've been tagged! Heather wants to know how I define "real mom", so here we go.

Real moms are willing to put humiliating cranial decorations on their children and take pictures of them for their own amusement. Just look at them. They know.

I'll keep printed copies of these on hand for this to bring to their therapy sessions, don't worry.

It gets much worse, though.

Yes, real moms are so completely exhausted that they will entrust their little darlings to their relatives for an entire night even though said relatives can be expected to:

1. Teach them to play with fire.

2. While drinking. (I have to admit, that is a perfect black & tan).

3. Feed them pure sugar for dinner and... who knows what else. 4. Leap ahead a holiday (while still observing the previous one) in order to pull out more humiliating cranial decorations.5. Photograph the entire debauchery.

Real moms don't mind and neither do real dads. Our sticky children were returned in one piece (well, technically two pieces. It's not like they're Siamese twins), seemingly happy and we slept nearly nine hours in a row. Best St. Patrick's Day ever.

Seems like I should tag somebody else, but all the rest of the mommy (and daddy) bloggers I even know of can be found right here.

I can't wait to see the 4th of July headgear. When they get a little older and less cuddly, maybe you could put them on a plane so they can spend half a summer with their Real Cousin, Aunt and Uncle. We have a creek and (soon) chickens.

Chickens?!? Pulling out the big guns, `eh? You let me know when you've got those chickens, mister. We'll be there.

Will you have any porch monkeys? (It's cool -- I'm taking it back.)

The rabbit ears are the best. And I know the dog in the background is thinkin' "Thank God they didn't put those on me."

Actually, that's Stelle in the background. She's thinking "I'd be gorgeous in those ears. Look at me. I'm stunning."
