Those "Memorable" Mommy Moments

Here are my Top 10 Typical Mommy Moments from Mother's Day Weekend:
  1. "Do I have to take a shower, Mom?" (Would you rather I Febreeze you?)

  2. "Mommy, please get my ball stuck up high in that bush." ( A hockey stick came in handy.)

  3. "Mom, Daddy is watching a scary show!" ( No "24" for my 7 year old gratefully.)

  4. "Mom, I forgot to tell you that I am supposed to read a non fiction book by Monday. Can we go to the library on Mother's Day?" (Good thing that I could raid my older son's bookcase.)

  5. "Mommy, I HAVE to wear my pink flower pants!! I don't want them to be in the wash now." (She does have a bunch of pink flower pants. Of course, she had to have that particular pair.)

  6. "Mom, how long do I have to watch them?" (Just play along side them. I'm not asking for a huge commitment of attention here.)

  7. "Mom, my shoe is on the roof." ( Don't ask.)

  8. "Mommy, why don't you wear your purple shirt? Please, please, please." (Honey, that shirt doesn't fit Mommy anymore. I can't wear a belly shirt like Madonna.)

  9. "Mom, I don't want to wear my jacket. I hate jackets. I won't wear a jacket. Mom, why do I have to wear a jacket?" (This went on for 10 minutes. It was chilly on Mother's Day. My 7 year old finally gave in to wearing a jacket. He comes in after 2 minutes and says, "Mom, you were right." Alleluia! They see that Mommy at least knows something :)

  10. "Mom, Happy Mother's Day! You're the best." (Those are the moments that keep me going.)
Hope to visit you all today! So busy these days :)

Okay the febreeze line is classic!! Love it! And believe it or not I can relate entirely to the shoe on the roof... and yes its a don't ask too!!

These are great Kelly! I giggled all the way through :)

Dani said...

Awe! Great post, Kelly! Love that last one especially. It is so great to hear those words "you were right" sometimes. :D Can't wait to hear my kids say things like this.

Diane said...

Love them! :O)

SwedishJenn said...

Awww...Loved this post Kelly! Febreeze...lol!

Angela said...

LOVE this! After a full day of cleaning, this was just what I needed to put a smile on my face. Thanks! :)

G said...

Fabreeze would work well on my son...:D

Hope you had a happy one..

Jenners said...

Well, 1 out of 10 ain't bad. (Well, it is actually but at least you got 1!)

Susan Fobes said...

Thank goodness for those moments-they at least help you deal with all the rest. (The shoe is on the roof? LOL!)

The Write Girl said...

I hope you had a lovely Mother's Day. It sounds like you are busy as usual. Be sure to get your much needed rest. Take care.

Jenna said...

What a Mother's Day you had. I particularly love the shoe on the roof as it brings back memories of a game we used to have to see who could throw their shoe over the house, but of course being rather small, their never quite made it. =)

Wendy said...

loved number 10!

kisatrtle said...

a great post

Judith Ellis said...

Oh, I love number one! "Would you rather I Fabreeze you?" What a witty reply. Too funny, Kelly!

T Rex Mom said...

The one of the roof was my favorite but isn't this what being a mom is really all about.

I would love to be a fly on the wall in your house some time - it sounds like a very interesting place.

Michelle said...

Awww so sweet! I love those. Although I send my kids out without a coat if they don't want to wear one. They usually come back in pretty quick, and I've yet to lose one to pneumonia (my mom's constant threat). I'm a mean mommy - no wonder you get the #10 so much!

Valerie said...

Every one a gem, Kelly. I love the insight into your family life. By the way, who got the shoe off the roof?

Vickie said...

Kelly, that was soooo funny! My favorite is the Mom you are right! I don't hear that too often.

Also, love the look of your blog...so classic looking!

I Really Enjoyed This Post :) :) Kids Make Wonders & They Are Understandable :) :)

Owning the Words said...

Enjoyed your Mommy moments. No. 1, I can relate and #5 is simply classic :D Kids are painful at times but they make our world go around.

sol said...

#10 is obviously the best one!!! makes it all worth it !!!!

Owning the Words said...

Thanks beautiful for stopping by. You didn't have to read all three posts. Though I am truly grateful. Thank you! I know you're a busy lady. I wanted you to see the one about Sun Magazine because you asked me once did I know of any paying markets. Again, many thanks.

Visit whenever you can. Have a blessed week!

He & Me + 3 said...

I loved reading these because it sounds all to familiar. Oh yes...24 almost gave me a stomach ache Monday night. Wowzers. jack is on a rampage.
It is all worth it when they tell you that you are the best! Love to hear those words.

Kelly L said...

Very sweet... We were cleaning out some drawers and found a love letter written to us when my oldest was around 6 - saying she loved us the mostest... priceless..

Love to you.
Kelly

Randi said...

What a perfect Mother's Day post! It just typifies a day in Mom-ville. I'm so glad you wrote these down. These moments slip by too quickly and are easily forgotten. Although it's late, Happy Mother's Day to you!

Ken Devine said...

Numbers 1 through 10 were the best:)

I was cleaning the loft and found some gems. These little things are so easily forgotten. It's fantastic that you've recorded them Kelly.

Dan said...

#2 could be read as a plea for you to stick the ball high in the bush, not recover a ball already stuck there. {*grin*}

Maybe it is related to the shoe on the roof quandary?

H.K. said...

I laughed at the first comment because when my son doesn't have time to take a shower, he sprays himself with fragrance spray called Axe and then Febreeze his clothes!

Becca said...

Goodness! Your life is certainly something else!!! Those kids must keep you laughing {and pulling at your hair} all the time!! I loved the Febreeze response!

I hope you had a very enjoyable Mother's DaY!

Jillien said...

AWW sounds like you had a good mother's day! thats wonderful!!

Happy living, my friend :)

Hyacynth said...

I have GOT to get some Febreeze! lol. And how did the shoe get on the roof? Baseball? Football?

Lois Lane II said...

I love the shoe on the roof one, lol!! (And the Febreeze...don't tell, but I secretly febreeze the dog sometimes...lol!!)

Teresha@Marlie and Me said...

Don said...

Nicely captured snippets that make you Mom! (Loved #5. Struck a memory chord of my 30 year old, when she was two.)
