Tuesday Talk: My Momfessional Moments

It takes no time at all for me to end up with a list of
awkward/embarrassing/gross/silly mom stories.
Having an almost two year old shadow definitely keeps life interesting.

Here are my most recent Momfessional Moments

1. Olive has learned the words SCARY & SCARED recently.  I think she got it from a book with these cute little monsters in it.  We tease and say they are scary and make silly faces when we get to their page.  This is all cute until we are out in public and she decides it's the perfect time to use her new words.  We were checking out at our beloved TJ Maxx and she starts pointing.  There's a big man in line behind us and she starts saying "I scared."  "Scary!" "Hold me, mama." Followed up with 5 more minutes of "I scared."  Nothing in the world would distract her and so she just she was scared a million different ways.  She kept hiding her face and asking me to hold her.  I was a tiny bit mortified, the cashier was cracking up and I just tried to smile through it.

2. We were both sitting on the floor playing together.  She has recently started herky jerky throwing things.  Her arms flail up and who knows where she's aiming.  Things go flying frequently.  She tossed an entire snack cup of her goldfish, said Uh-Oh and  then hopped up and proceeded to stomp the pile into the rug.  It all happened in a matter of seconds.  I picked her up and said a stern NO.  I explained why this wasn't acceptable and she replied, "I wuv you mama."  All was forgiven.

3. We were practicing counting and doing some fun flash cards.  We were counting and got up to 8, 9, 10, 11 and then I paused.  She chimed in and said TWELVE.  I was in shock because usually she says one, two, free, four, pive, six and nine.  I guess she was listening to me.

4. If we have pizza for dinner she throws her hands up and says HOORAY.  I fixed a frozen Freschetta pizza for dinner the other night and you would have thought I'd been slaving in the kitchen all day long.  She seems to prefer pizza over any other dinner option.  Point taken.

5. We were in my room getting dressed last week.  She headed off to our bathroom and got too quiet.  I went in to find her sitting in the bath tub with my razor (with the cover on it) and a bar of soap.  She was tasting the soap and making gross faces.  I guess Irish Springs doesn't taste delicious.  I seriously took my eyes off her for a second.

6. I was rocking Olive to sleep the other night.  She'd had a drink of milk, we had chatted and said our bedtime prayers.  She was getting sleeping so I told her it was time to go to bed.  She leaned it, grabbed my faced and proceeded to say ugga mugga and rub noses with me.  It was precious and may have made me tear up.  She is obsessed with Daniel Tiger and he says ugga mugga for his I love yous to his parents.  They rub noses and it's adorable.  Her daddy has since been trying to get her to ugga mugga him :)

Please tell me your funny kid stories to make me feel better.

  1. Your little girl is so cute! Linking up today. Thanks for hosting!

  2. I throw my hands up and shout hooray when we have pizza too!

  3. Yes my kids LOVE pizza-- the simpler the meal, the better :-)

  4. What is it about children knowing EXACTLY what to say in public to embarrass us?! Though it sounds adorable in the retelling.

  5. I can't wait for our little guy to really start talking...but then I hear stories like this! Haha! Oh goodness, too funny.

  6. Thank you for posting this blog post. My kiddos are older now... my baby is 10! I loved reading your blog post. It brought back so many memories! :)


  7. My kids love pizza too! I try not to get offended that they prefer it over any of my home cooked meals :)
    Thanks so much for linking up!

  8. I share Olive's enthusiasm for pizza. The perk of being an adult is that I don't have to have my mom make it for me, haha.

  9. I just LOVE reading everyone's momfessional moments. I have had many of my own lately, and will have to share them sometime. It always makes me feel good seeing other mothers dealing with the same types of situations and knowing that I am not alone in this motherhood journey!

  10. Awww!!! That ugga mugga bit is my favorite. How precious is that!

  11. Ugga mugga! How adorable! I was chuckling with the Irish soap one. Seriously, you look away for one moment! This morning, I forgot to snap Elizabeth into her high chair. Normally, not a big deal. But this morning, I turned my back for one moment, and within that moment she managed to stand up and had one leg hanging over the edge, about to leap down! GAH! Crazy kiddos :) Moms always have the best stories.

  12. Oh my gosh, Olive's stories of the things she says when y'all are out are hilarious! And pizza for dinner makes me say hooray too, mainly because it means I don't have to cook, ha!


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
