And the mother of the year award goes to...

Someone other than me. If we're going to have true confessions here goes. For some reason whenever there is a "sign up" sheet I never want to sign up for the easy stuff. Like paper plates. Oh no. Why? When I have a perfectly good chance to make something cute and awesome and prove to myself that I can do it all? Sure. And then comes the LAST MINUTE. Where I ask myself "Why?" WHY didn't I be the smart mom who signed up for paper plates or carrot sticks? WHY did I do this most likely knowing it would come down to game time and I would scramble? Honestly, I think I like the adrenaline rush of doing things last minute even though it hacks Brian off to no end. So, in a matter of hours I am supposed to have non-iced cupcakes (again, my choice to sign up for this) at Caroline's school and I have to fess up to calling Kroger to see if they would just sell me some non-iced cupcakes from the bakery. But they won't. And part of me thinks that the reason they won't is to teach lazy moms like me a lesson. As in DON'T OVER-ACHIEVE. It is OKAY to bring the freaking paper plates. And guess what? That mom most likely got to watch the Office without timing things for commercial breaks. Man, I don't know who that mom is but right now she is so much smarter than I am.

I feel your pain. Why didn'r I sign up for the candy corn or juice? No, I had to sign up for mini cupcakes. I don'r even own mini cupcake pans!! I baked 5 dozen mini cupcakes. I think I have a short circuit in my brain!!
