Mommy Peeves TAG
That I do not need to watch my son all the time. "Just let him play". My son will run towards stairs, knives or cliffs like they are going out of style.
2. Worst baby clothes?
When my son was about 4 months old I got him a wrap-front shirt that had more buttons than anything I own. It was such a pain in the butt to put on him. I love zippers for a reason, they are so much easier for getting squirming babies in and out of.
3. Rudest comment about being a single mom you have gotten?
I think that my kid would wind up in jail as an adult because single moms only raise failures. I like to reply with Presidents Clinton and Obama and then walk away.
4. What is a funny disaster from the holidays with your kids?
My son tried to steal candles as I lit the shamash and nearly lit my hair on fire which meant the dog was nearly crushed by falling apples.
5. You favorite food to make for your littles during the holidays?
My son adores green beans or whipped cream so I try to include those. For Hanukkah I have been on a frying rampage with churros, donuts, latkes and legumes.
Oh god, one year I had to shop for 29 people on black Friday because my ex-spousal equivalent could not lift a finger to save their life. It was a hellish battle in the hot Tucson air between velour tracksuit clad fake teetas and spray tans.
7. Slippers or socks on Christmas morning?
Slippers for me but socks for my son because he will not keep any kind of shoe on.
8. Your baby's funniest reaction to the holidays?
Christmas tree lights blow his mind and he keeps trying to 'decorate' the tree with random household goods like hairbrushes and wooden blocks.
9. The nicest comment you have gotten about single parenting?
That is a hard one. That I'm raising a sweet and very happy little boy. It is amazing how much a few nice words can mean to a parent.
