You Want Me to be Blogger Mother of the Year?

So it’s not enough that I gave birth to you, raised you as a single parent, organized countless birthday parties, play dates, and sports activities (remember the diving team?), made brownies and science projects, paid for braces and contact lenses, took you trick or treating in the rain, was the Tooth Fairy, Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny and Dr. Phil, cooked for you, cleaned up your vomit, decorated your bedroom, took you to the emergency room, paid for 4 years of a private college, watched you die your hair a million different colors, pretended not to mind when you showed up for my 50th birthday with a shaved head, bought you your first car, consoled you throughout your countless relationships, moved you about 12 times (including security deposits-which I never got back!), paid rent when your psycho roommates bounced, bought you outfits for proms, graduations, and interviews, wrote your college essays and resumes…

and now you want me to be blogger mother of the year??????

      I’m not a mom, but I have a mom. I know moms do a lot for their kids, but this mom did lots! I work with children and I wish some of the moms would care a third of what this one cared.

      I can definitely sympathize, but… wrote the college essays? Yikes.

      Goddamn… now that’s what my mom would call “an enabler” or a “helicopter mom”, as learned in her many parenting classes she took when I was about 12. I was always jealous of friends with these ready-and-willing moms!!

      What good mother doesn’t have a list like this to rattle off at a moment’s notice?! 3 cheers for good moms!

      Dr. Phil’s advice is just about as real as the tooth fairy and santa

      Time to cut the umbilical cord once and for all for this child. “Thoughtless” and “spoiled” are the two terms I’d apply to this offspring. On the other hand … Wonderful Mom! I wonder if she would take me on. I would be so grateful and kind to her.

      I’d say that after doing all of that, being blogger mom of the year really wouldn’t be that big of a deal. Maybe that’s because I don’t have children, but hey, it happens. Some mother was going to get that title.
