Lately, whenever she does the kinds of things that just make you want to give up the mother of the year awards, I simply say "Awesome."
For example, in context.
Yesterday, Avery crawled through the cat gate in the laundry...
|Taken after the fact - she's too quick through the gate|
|Nothing to see here...|
|I'm carb loading Mommy.|
While I was doing some dishes, Avery used her now-patented climb on the chair to get access to the things on the kitchen table method to grab my fuel belt. She began drinking the water in the water bottles. I saw no problem with that, and continued doing dishes. Amateur.
Next thing I knew, she was having oh so much fun with water.
|If I fill up these bowls, I can play some awesome splashing games.|
While I was prepping dinner, Avery decided to be helpful and CLIMB INSIDE the measuring cup drawer.
|Just making sure you don't use the WRONG cup mommy!|
This morning, Avery was enjoying checking out the tree, kicking ornaments, whatever. And broke an ornament that was previously thought to be unbreakable.
|Don't mind me, I'm just enjoying the window seat.|
|My kid killed Bambi!|
Avery has also discovered that the who-knows-how-old-they-are-because-I-reuse-them-every-year candy canes on the tree can be snapped in two and peppermint goes flying everywhere.
Because I thought she'd gotten the candy cane she'd snapped from my box of new candy canes, I ate one of said candy canes after it was broken.
|Duh Mommy. That's why I went with the paci. Years old candy canes are nasty.|
My poor child will be forever confused. On the other hand, here a couple of things from today that actually ARE awesome...
A $1 vanilla cone at McDonald's drive through after your child has done many of the previously mentioned "awesome things"
|And it's all mine!|
|She's becoming a real wife...taking my money.|
|I put in a good word for you mommy.|
Do you have any words like AWESOME that you use to mean something other than what Webster's Dictionary says they mean?
Any AWESOME things in your life lately?
