It has been a long time since I’ve done a Mommy Moment Monday. Guess there hasn’t been too many moments to share. Let me explain Mommy Moment Monday first. This is a Meme where we share those moments in life where we get absent minded. It happens to everyone, but when it happens to mom it usually means the kids are affected. We have to find a way to laugh at these moments. So I started Mommy Moment Monday so we can commiserate and laugh at those silly mistakes we make. Feel free to grab my button and link up your own Mommy Moment at the bottom.
Monica’s Mommy Moment
We’re getting towards the end of the school year. We still have another 4 weeks of school to go here and it’s really beginning to take its toll on me I think. The kids too. We’re all anxious for the year to end, but I’m especially anxious when things like this happen. The other day I was rushing my elementary school children out the door for school. My children get up and dress themselves and aside from telling them when they need a sweater or that they can’t wear shorts they pick out their clothes and put them on themselves. I usually check teeth, hair, and faces as we’re rushing out the door and make sure we have coats and hats on if needed. Well, apparently this particular day I failed to notice that my 5 year old son had his pants on backwards.
Not only did I not notice that his pants were on backwards as we were walking out the door, but I also did not notice that they were on backwards when we got to the bus stop or when he got on the bus. His bus driver had to point it out to me and tell me she’d have him change them at school. I stood there thinking, how did I not notice that? I couldn’t even honestly think of what pants he was wearing.
My son got to school and changed his pants around without incident. And I lived to tell about it. So I’d say it’s a win all the way around.
Now it’s your turn. Got any Mommy Moments you want to share today?
