We all want to be “that mom”. You know the one. The one who makes the perfect bento box lunches, with your child’s kale and bean sprout sandwich lovingly crafted in the shape of precious animal faces. With a kid who actually likes kale and bean sprouts. Most of us, however, are not that mom and our kids are not like that, either. We are more like the moms you’re likely to find on NickMom.
The #MotherFunny funny moms. The kind that you can thankfully find even more of on the NickMom Facebook page and Twitter. The moms who need a minute before they pull their hair out. The moms who feed their kid a cupcake instead of arguing over a bowl of grapes.
Now, I try. I really do. My daughter, for instance, really loves her bananas and apple sauce. And my 7 year old has been known to turn down a brownie when offered, which completely baffles me because whose kid are you? But there is a lot of sugar around here. A lot. I’m going for sugar coma, actually.
These are my current snack options on hand. In my defense, however, I have my help and her name is Grandma. She just shows up with a bag full of treats. Those frosted cookies there, they’re from her. So are the donuts, actually. I could be the healthiest mom in the world, offering fruit smoothies and broccoli sandwiches. She’d still find a way to bring in some chocolate and cookies. I learned well, apparently. I learned from the best.
So what do my snack choices say about me? They say that as hard as I try, eventually I just give up. And that’s ok, because thanks to NickMom.com, I know I’m not alone. I can even find some other funny mothers to laugh with about it.
