Not Mom-of-the-Year

Photo Credit
I've been a working mom since my little Mack was born. It's been over 2 1/2 years of this working mom thing. I constantly fail. I'm not the best at it. I try to make it work the best I can. 

Story time.... Last night I tried entertaining Mack next to me on a stool while working and cooking her dinner. I was working away, stirring the pot of boiling Mack N Cheese and Boom! Mack fell off the stool and smacked her head on the corner of the couch and hit her elbow. She didn't cry.... she screamed. I quickly scooped her, cuddled and tried to comfort and calm her down. 

Ian comes out of the room, "What happened?" 
Me: " She fell of the stool, I need you to take her for a minute so I can finish her dinner."

By then I was irritated, here I am trying to work, cook dinner and entertain her. She ends up getting hurt and I have to ask for Ian to look after her for a minute.

Work: Yes, I work 24/7 and that's the way it is. 

I spend most evening's hanging out with my child on the couch or in my bed with a laptop on my lap. 

I'm not the Mom-of-the-Year or the Working-Mom-of-the-Year. I try my best and sometimes I fail.

Camera Died.. Mom Fail

The camera died at the hair cut place. Of course. Mom Fail! Anyway, I took her photo of the hair cut after her nap that same day. Kinda messy, but you get the idea. It's cute and the finished product.
