The Score

Jan 21, 2011 - 01:10 PM
Being a mother has its ups and downs...you win some, you lose some. If I had a score card, this is kind of what it would look like...
He falls asleep in the car and I make a successful transition from car seat to
crib---VICTORY!
He wakes up at 5:30 a.m. I give in and make a cup of coffee, then he goes back to sleep within
30 minutes---DEFEAT.
After a month of "Mommy's nose", "Bennett's nose", "Mommy's nose", "Bennett's nose" while pointing back and forth to our noses, out of nowhere I hear "noooose" and a tiny finger in my
nostril---VICTORY!
While letting him "air-out" for a little bit before tubby time I start wondering who tracked in mud from outside...oh wait!---DEFEAT!
After 10 minutes of him crying in his crib and I'm seconds away from going to pick him up feeling like a horrible mommy, he falls asleep and takes a 2 1/2 hour nap proving that he was in
fact tired---VICTORY!
So I ask, what's on your scorecard?
