Name-calling and other great moments in motherhood

I had both kids in the car with me yesterday when I was cut-off big time by another driver in a very rude way.  Well, not like there's a polite way to be cut-off, but this was an exceptional "I'm going to blatantly swerve in front of you and enjoy watching you panic" kind of way.

I got scared.

I got furious.

Then I started to swear, kind of forgetting the kids were all-ears right behind me.  I used some rather choice phrases and then ended with, "Learn how to drive, [BEEPITY-BEEP-BEEP]!"

Wavey brought me back down to Earth when she innocently asked, "How do you know that guy's name?"

I will accept my Mother of the Year Award now, please.

I think we've all had those moments. At least, I know I have!

Not that easy-You don't recieve the Mother of the year award until your oldest starts using the words herself. Maybe she will even pick just the right time when you have dinner guests or your parents! hee hee
