Not mother of the year.....again

Why does it seem that most of my posts are telling you how I fail at motherhood? Yes, I totally stole the award on my blog, I don't know who it belongs to all I know is the bitch is giving me a bad name.

Tonights bad mother moment is all in the eyes of the beholder. I don't think it makes me a bad mom but Hailey does.

About a month ago Hailey got a tattoo on her wrist for the baby she lost. It's small, delicate and girlie. I wasn't thrilled but realized it could have been worse.

Tonight her boyfriend gave her a new tattoo. Hailey is not a fan of needles or pain so she wanted me to hold her hand. When I said no she broke out the crocodile tears and the pouty face and reminded me that mothers should always support their children, even if they are getting a tattoo she doesn't agree with.

Nope, not happening girlfiriend. There was much stomping and using her best frowny face on me, reminding me that I'm a bad mommy.

I stood my ground, baby girl got her tattoo anyway, even without her Mommy to hold her hand. I'm sure one day she will forgive me but when she is 50 and she hates these tattoos at least she won't be able to say I encouraged it.

Here we go again

Hello my lovely bloggy friends, I've missed you. Well, not really because I've been spying on you everyday through your blogs, but I have missed writing. It's been a while. I would like to say it won't happen again but we all know that would be a lie, so I won't say it.

I thought I would take a minute to catch you up on what I've been doing since you last heard from me. For Labor Day I went camping with some friends, Lava Hot Springs, here we are tubing the river.

These are the friends I went camping with, the very people my Momma warned me about when I was a kid. Just what the heck are they doing?


Then it was home to get ready for my Momma's visit. I redecorated the main bath because Hailey moved to the basement and for the first time in my life I have my own bathroom.



I made this shower curtain, I do not recommend you try this at home. I had to use all of my best swear words several times to get the damn thing done!



Then my Momma came to town. We visited with my sisters and Mom got to see her great grandson for the first time. We laughed, reminisced and bbq'd.



But mostly Momma made us stay up late, drink beer and play cards with questionable men.



Now we are getting ready to marry off my youngest neice, she's almost nineteen, practically an old maid. Thank God we found someone to take her off our hands before her best years were completely behind her. Aren't they cute?



Her briday shower/bachelorette party was last night and I made the cake. It was so lovely, a wedding dress and three pretty bridesmaids dresses in her colors.


Then the fondant got soft and this happened and I found the true purpose of marshmallows.




I had to put marshmallows under the fallen part, no one was the wiser. Ok, so they totally noticed but spared my feelings anyway.

In other news, I'm still writing my blogs at Families.com, I've opened an Etsy shop, there's nothing in it but it's there. And I have a newfound addition to Pinterest.

So that's it for me. What's been going on in your world?
