Why Mommy Needs a Cocktail:

* Because the skin on my back hurts and I don't know why. And it has for two days.

* Because no matter how many times I dragged Jack out of bed this morning, he kept returning to his covers and the cat who was snuggled in them. And because Sam came down on me for "breaking the deal" that he and Alex made about breakfast before I got there and that I still don't know what it is. And because Quinn is too damn happy in the morning.

* Because when we're in the car and Quinn decides it's time to drive regardless of red lights and oncoming traffic, he'll kick the back of my seat and yell "Go! Go!" until I hit the accelerator.

* Because Jack's bus left him at school today when he was in the bathroom at pick-up time. And he was a little traumatized by it. (Super-neighbor L also deserves a cocktail for stepping up to pick up Sam at the bus stop when I had to go get Jack.)

* Because possibly the worst picture of all time of me has been posted in this Flickr pool. Bet ya can spot it!

* Because I just got this fantastic t-shirt at this Mommy Needs a Cocktail party, and I always follow through on whatever t-shirts tell me to do.

  1. I'm sorry I missed this - it looked like fun. My t-shirt would read: Mommy needs a stiff drink since that's what I say, like, everyday.

  2. Love the tee shirt ... looks like you guys had a blast.

    Poor Jack ... that's awful!

    And the whole getting SB out of bed in the morning is starting to wear on my nerves. It took me almost 45 minutes to get him up, dressed and downstairs this morning leaving us only 15 minutes to do his meds and breakfast and get to school. I swear it's like trying to get a teenager out of bed!

  3. I should mention that he's the slowest eater On. The. Planet. So it takes him more than 15 minutes to chew one bite of something.

  8. Boo does the same thing as Quinn. And it drives me bat shit.

    My tshirt would read Mummy (of course with a u cause I am an Aussie) needs a straw.

    For the bottle of wine. Saves washing up and effort of lifting the glass to my mouth while I sit and stare at the wall.

  9. Ha! Well that last picture of yours made me laugh...something I haven't done in days, so feel good that you made a depressed lady laugh. Now that chick with the pink tank top made me more depressed.. why can't I look like that? I bet mommy would be getting lots of cock and tail if I looked like that. Sigh. I don't know who she is, but don't tell her I said that!

  10. Well, Ange, I'm glad at least that I made you laugh. I was actually the sober designated driver that night. Imagine how insane my photos might have looked had I been drinking. As for the woman in the tanktop (Kimberly from Petroville): yeah, she's absolutely gorgeous. And annoyingly enough, she's wonderfully nice too.

  11. No one else can dare to argue that you don't deserve your cocktail now, I guess! That's a whole lots of BECAUSE!

  12. Is that you with a spear in your hand, and your mouth purkered opened, looking like perch ready to some fishy flakes?

    I think it's an adorable pic.

  13. Cocktails with other mommies are desperately needed at our house. You've inspired me to e-mail a bunch of blog babes in my neck of the woods. :-)
