Why I will not get a Mother of the Year award

I always use sarcasm, I really don't know how to NOT use it. However, there are some times my filter should have kicked on but did not.

Blunder #1.... My son has to have surgery at Primary Children's Hospital to have some cysts removed. They have no idea what they are or what is causing them. My son asks, "mom, is this serious? Am I going to die?" I replied, "Noooo, not without a lot of expensive and painful tests and treatments first."

Blunder #2..... One of my twins was bragging that she would soon be 17 years old. I replied, "yeah, and then I lose you as a tax deduction, so you are pretty much useless to me after that."

And this is all in one week.... to finish it off:

One of my children lost her first tooth. I stopped and got "Tooth Fairy" money on my way home from work...... yep, you guessed it, I then forgot to put it under her pillow. She had slept on my floor in my room, so I told her that the Fairy must have been confused and left it in her room. She told me she had already checked. DANG!! I went in and put it in her pillowcase, then pointed out that she should check there as it is dark and the Fairy is just feeling around in the dark. Her face lit up when she found it, but she was disappointed for hours while she thought she had been forgotten. Whew!! I barely rescued that one.......

What's wrong with your son? You should email the sisters. :)

He is having some cysts removed, they have no idea what they are, but do not seem too concerned... I would email the sisters, but I don't think I have all the emails. :) They are only removing half of them, to see what they are. Fun.....

One year the Easter Bunny almost forgot to make his rounds at our house. She only remembered at like 9:00 at night that she had nothing to give, so ran to the store. I can't remember why the Easter Bunny was so busy that year that she would forget.

The tooth fairy used to put money in a little jar on our kitchen sink windowsill instead of under the pillow (she was a very lazy fairy and didn't want to worry about the possibility of waking kids up.) If she forgot, I told the kids that sometimes it took a day or two. I know...bad.

You are funny AND you are a good mom! You are just normal like the rest of us!

I've forgotten to do the Tooth Fairy thing, too. But sometimes kids don't tell YOU, they just put their tooth somewhere and expect money to magically appear. Annoying.
