WEDNESDAY’S WTF MOMMY MOMENTS

We’re all Mothers here, and with being a Mom comes those ‘not so proud’ moments. A lot of people try to come across as being the perfect Mom, but no one is perfect. We all have flaws, we’re all learning. This series will be used as a NON-JUDGMENTAL way for other Mothers (who wish) and myself to share their embarrassing or just hilarious stories. Let’s all come together for some giggles and to remind each other that we all have these moments. Every Wednesday I will pick 3 of my favourite Mom fails to add to the list!

1. Josh and I are a little strict about letting our kids eating junk food. Of course we let Owen (Maverick is still too young) to have some, but we limit it. Anyways, we convinced him that McDonald’s is gross, and that if he ate there a lot he could get fat. I blame Josh 😉 So for Owens birthday my older sister took him on a little date. She asked if he could eat McDonald’s for dinner and we agreed to it, but Owen would not let her. He told her and I quote “McDonald’s is for fat people who can’t get off the couch.” When she told me I couldn’t help but laugh. The worst part of it all, while they were out Josh and I went and ate McDonald’s. Don’t tell Owen! 😉

2. When Owen was a baby (about 7/8 months) we had to share a room with him. Well, let’s just say “sexy time” became difficult, especially because we also lived with my sister and her husband. Josh and I would do it when Owen was sleeping but a few times we would be done and look over and he would be staring at us. It was definitely a mood killer. Well after a couple times of that happening Owen starting going around the house humping everything. Luckily we only shared a room for two months before we moved and Owen had his own room.

3. Owen HATES getting his hair washed. No matter what I would do he would throw a tantrum. One night I tried to reason with him for 30 minutes… Well I had enough. I convinced him that he had lice in his hair so he had to wash it. I’m not proud of lying to him but he did wash his hair that night without even putting up a fuss.

4. One day, not so long ago, I trusted my quiet 3 year old had finally fallen asleep at nap time so I myself took a quick rest. Turns out that nap of hers was more of a pool party in her room, with every toy, Barbie, and stuffed animal she owns. #epicmomfail

5. Just last week I needed to get some yard work done while at home with my two girls, 3 years old and 3 months old. I thought hey, painting on the lawn will be a great way to keep my oldest occupied while I unload all of this top soil from the truck! Needless to say, my last glance / check-in to her consisted of her arms being painted dark just like “Elsa’s gloves”! Only to shortly thereafter realize the whole front end of our truck was also a mural of her beautiful hand prints . We laughed in surprise when we saw that, and after telling her that it isn’t funny her response was “well it’s a little bit funny”.
Fail.

6. When Owen was about 3 years old he went into his room for some alone play time. This wasn’t unusual. I would go in every so often to check on him but it was also my time to get cleaning done. Well he was being very very quiet. Anyone with children knows that quiet usually means bad news. When I walked into the room I couldn’t believe what I saw. Owen was standing there completely naked, (he somehow managed to take all his clothes off) and he had a blue marker in his hand. He coloured all over himself, his butt and his penis included. So it was straight to the bath after that. I’m just glad that he didn’t color on the walls!

7.  My daughter Lynette was ordered up in high numbers for King’s Cup, the bad bad drinking game at the age of 12, by her Mommy. LOL. I thought her older sister had diluted her wine glass with ginger ale, so when someone needed to be ordered for drinks, I ordered up Nettie thinking I was preventing too much alcohol consumption for my other daughters. Turns out her diluted wine was finished many glasses ago and she was drinking straight wine. Lynette got seriously drunk. Not a great Mommy moment. I felt so bad at the time, but I laugh about it now.

8. My son Blake started really getting into dinosaurs. So I let my mum talk me into letting him see Jurassic Park. The first 3 weren’t bad, he and I enjoyed them. He never got scared. Jurassic World came out so obviously we bought the movie and a toy at Target and went home to watch it. I noticed there was lots of swearing in it but didn’t think he’d pick up on it, which he said sh** once however I explained don’t repeat, he got the point…My mother in law came to visit and she’s VERY reserved and somewhat proper. My son begged me to put the movie in so I did. Didn’t think anything of it…until the swear words came blasting from the TV. I never saw someone glare at me like that ever. The, “you let him watch this” look. I know he’s my child and I can parent him the way I see fit, but I also want my peers to not give me laser beam stares a cross the room. Sadly we haven’t watched that movie in a while, however we do watch the first one here and there.

9. It was one of those nights, when my youngest named Evelynn was sick, so no one slept! As my husband, our youngest and I were sleeping, my Son (who would have been 2 at the time) snuck out of the room unnoticed … this cannot end well. I am a gardener, and decided to invest in a tower garden. It took me months for my plants to mature, they were almost ready to harvest! And on the table was a fish with a lemon tree growing via aquaponics. My husband wakes me and says “Honey, I am so sorry. Jace destroyed your plants” Well that was an understatement! It was a total plant massacre! Every plant ripped up at the roots and thrown everywhere, puddles everywhere, pieces of leaves stuck to my Sons face as he tries to say it was his younger sister Evelynn lol He ever shoved the fish bowl full of ripped up plants! Lucky fish has survived being fed coffee, plants stuffed in his bowl and little hands trying to pet him. Unfortunately he didnt survive Jace playing cars, throwing 2 in the bowl and breaking his poor little back! When Jace found out he was so sad, he loved that “fweesh” perhaps its a lesson in learning.

10. Not too long ago we were in Home Depot looking for some home renovation items. We were walking when Owen noticed that one of the employees is a little person. Owen saw and excitedly grabbed my arm, pointed to the man and said “look mommy, a little boy works here.” I felt so bad, I smiled to the man and when we got into the truck I explained to Owen why he shouldn’t do that. I think Owen was just excited because he thought that he could get a job there too.

11. One time I picked up Maverick to smell his butt to see if he had pooped. Oh, he definitely pooped. All over his back and seeping through his clothes. Well I realized that after I sniffed his butt…. and got poop on my face. Yeah, it was a sad day. Note to self: look first, smell after.

12. When you have 3 kids and there’s millions of papers all over the house and you make the executive decision on what to keep and what to throw out. Then your child finds out and you get busted. Sorry Jess! #momfail #badmom #epicfail
