A Quiz: Do you deserve the "Mom of the Year" Award?

I appreciate all the feedback I've received about this blog.  It seems as though many of you can relate to being a "mom of the year."  So I've put together a little quiz to see how you measure up.  Feel free to share your score in the comments section.  Dads can participate too - either on your wife's behalf or to see if you should be named "dad of the year."

Scoring instructions:
If you've never done it, 0 points
If you've done it only once, 1 point
If you've done it multiple times, 2 points

1. While out and about with your kid(s) in the stroller, have you ever "parked" the stroller, turned around, and then realized your child was rolling away?
2. Have you ever hit "snooze" on your baby monitor (unintentionally of course)?
3. Have you ever slammed your child's head into the doorway while walking through holding him or her?
4. Have you ever given your child Motrin or Tylenol and sent him or her to daycare, hoping the medicine would prevent the school from calling you to come pick up your sick child?
5. Have you ever eaten the candy or cupcake that was intended for your child (i.e. at a party or Halloween) and used the excuse that you don't want your child to eat sweets?
6. Have you ever called your child by your dog's name?
7. Have you ever driven to work only to realize that your kid(s) are in the backseat of your car?
8. Have you ever taken your child somewhere without a change of clothes and ended up in only a diaper for the remainder of the day?
9. Has your child ever picked up your phone and, instead of pretending to talk on it, pretended to "check email?"
10. Have you ever wondered why your child was so fussy and then realized that you forgot a meal or snack and he or she was probably just hungry?

  1. If I had kids, I'm sure I would answer a 2 to all of them. Here's to being a mom just like you someday!
