Whoooo! I'm Mother of the Year!

Despite my trials, my missteps, my self-doubt, and my inability to make scrambled eggs, it would seem I've won some sort of Mother of the Decade Award.

It's true! Major League Baseball wants me to throw out the first pitch, America Ferarra gave me props, and some dude tattooed my name on his back.

Thanks, Moms Rising. I love you guys.

If I am unable to fulfill my duties for any reason, please feel free to pass the crown onto Michelle Obama, who I understand came in a very close second.

(Psst...want to see your own video or send one to your mom? Click here.)

Want another cool thing you can do in honor of Mother's Day? (Besides heading to the Cool Mom Picks Mother's Day Gift Guide and forwarding linky hints to your SigOth.) Write your own six-word Momoir for Smith Magazine and True Mom Confessions, and try to sum up the miraculous journey of parenthood in a whopping six words.

I gave it a shot here.  Although I think Kristen Chase's is the best.

So..what would yours be?

Ooh! The Mom of the Year video is much better than the one where Glenn Beck called me (or who is watching) a socialist... That one really freaked me out. (and that last sentence could TOTALLY be tweaked into my six-word momoir! Becoming a mom freaked me out!)

The other day I said my six-word memoir, at least during this year with a toddler, would be: "repeatedly says no, is repeatedly ignored."

Momoir: I know I'll get better, eventually.


The Internet keeps me mostly sane.

When I'm in a sappy mood: One, two, three, they complete me.

Or: Proof that I'm doing something right.

Or: My heart: two girls, one boy.

When I'm a whiny and grouchy like now: Thank god they are all cute.

Or: For sale to semi-nice owner.

Or: The mother's curse? Not a joke.

Insane, all she does is drive.

Well, that's what motherhood feels like most days. Happy Mother's Day!
