If moms got Mazzies like bad actors get I'd be a winner.

Every year, right before the Oscars, the worst actors/movies of the year receive Razzie Awards.  Some years, the winner of the Golden Raspberry for the worst actor/ress  is also the winner of the Oscar for best actor/ress (i.e. Sandra Bullock in 2009 got a Razzie for "All About Steve", then turned around and won an Oscar the next day for "The Blind Side.").

Earlier today, I felt like I deserved an award for Best Mom.  I took Jackson to his Speech Therapy evaluation and he did great.  He tested right where he should be and DOESN'T NEED SPEECH THERAPY!!  I wanted to jump, dance, and shout it from the roof tops.  I'm so happy he is improving so quickly with his speech but most of all I'm THRILLED that I don't have to drive an hour away for a 30 minute speech therapy session every week.  (Sorry if that's selfish, but you know you'd be happy about that too!)

I was also SUPER excited to come home and find my new AppState colored hula hoop from Hoopenanigans.  Bryan had already gotten it set up, so I immediately went to hooping.

Isn't she lovely?

I was a little frustrated because I couldn't keep it off the ground, but I finally figured it out.  Right as I started getting good I felt a thump and then heard a scream - the kind of scream that comes out silent at first because you're catching your breath - yeah, it was that bad.  Jackson had walked right into the path of the hoop behind me.  Keep in mind this is not a hula hoop you'd buy in the toy section of your favorite super store.  This is a large, thick, weighted adult hula hoop.  I grabbed him but couldn't get him stop clutching me long enough to look at his face.  When I finally got a peek I saw this...

Would it be inappropriate to tell everyone he was in a bar brawl?
I'm not sure which one shows worse parenting skills.

And, today's Mazzie for Worst Mommy goes to...

  1. The bar comment reminds of me of Sweet Home Alabama. "Lurlynn, look at you! You have a baby! In a bar..."
