If motherhood had its own Olympics, what would the events be?
Mother's go for the gold everyday. Our skill sets and ability to multitask are just as sharp as any Olympian. What would the events be to show off these amazing skills that we train for everyday?
I'm sure once you have all your answers the list will be very long, but here's a start:
The Motherhood Olympic Event: Out of the care into the home.
The Olympians need to drive a mini van for 20 min. with a crying baby and needy toddler. Upon arriving at home, she needs to get the toddler safely out of the car, carry the baby inside with 5 bags of grocery while making sure she has her purse, cell phone and that all doors are closed and locked be hind her. Upon entering the home, she needs to feed the toddler a snack, and put the baby down for a nap. The baby can not wake up with outside influences such as a dog barking or telephone ringing. She must wear heels and a button down silk blouse with makeup and hair done while she was driving in the car.
Deductions will be taken off for:
broken grocery bag and spilled food
dropping the baby or toddler
having to go to the bathroom
Winner will have pose, and be able to master the task with in a short amount of time with grace and pose. Winner will have no stains on her blouse. Make up and hair will be pristine.
To the van add a whiny teenager texting with earplugs and a dog that needs to pee! Upon getting into house the teenager hits the fridge whines there's nothing to eat screams you don't understand them and slams their bedroom door! LOL!
That is great Candie! Those Olympians have nothing on us moms!
As answered by a mom of all boys:
- Strategic driving (timed) from one kid's sporting event to another. Extra points if you were able to see over 50% of both games. Deduction if you missed the only inning your kid pitched.
- The art of juggling a purse, a bag of snacks, and your camera stepping up to the top of bleachers... while wearing heels because you didn't have time to change after work. Extra points if you did it without stumbling and actually remembered to take pictures during the game.
- Negotiator - Extra points for no unhappy kids at the end of the negotiation.
- Coupon clipping. Extra points for actually using them.
- Mastering TUNING KIDS OUT. Gold medal to the parent who can ignore the curdling scream that they know is that not of pain, but of "It was my turn to play Xbox"
Who said no unhappy kids? Put one on time out! LOL! don't we get extra points for making them cry?
Candie V - LOL!! As long as it isn't the cry you have to tune out (see the last event above). Then we're DQ'ed from the competition.
This is a great Olympic event! I have two in sports too. And their should be a budget. You need to get all the sports supplies for under $100.00. Love the coupons. I can cut, but always forget to use them. Then I give up.
As a dad I might be disqualified to even answer, but I would think # 1 would be the speed to properly diaper a baby. Or how to multitask - like feeding the baby while cooking supper for the rest of the family, maybe while ironing the clothes or vacuuming even helping the older children with their homework and at the same time washing windows. Get the picture? I don't see how our moms did these things and more with no medals or even a 'thank you' when accomplished...
