That time i was the best mommy and the worst mommy . . .

. . . all in the same 30 seconds.

So, Allison has this chick in her class. Let’s call her Madison. Let’s say that’s not her real name because we don’t want to make anyone feel bad.

But, that’s her real name.

She’s mean.

A real Meanie Head.

Allison came home the other day (before her school Winter Fantasy Program) saying that Madison (not her real name, but it is) was making fun of her. Saying that Allison couldn’t make snowflakes that looked good. Allison, mind you, is THE SWEETEST kid in the world. I’m not saying that because she’s my kid.

I’m saying that because she’s my kid AND she’s the sweetest kid in the world.

So when I heard that this girl was making fun of MY girl? I was less than pleased.

Allison marches to the beat of her own drum and she is amazing at it. She decided that not only was she going to make snowflakes? But she was going to pin ’em all over herself for the show.

Hey. I’m on board for that.

When she started cutting and folding, I said, ‘You know what? We ’bout to make some snowflakes up in here. And I don’t mean ‘make some snowflakes’. I mean MAKE SOME SNOWFLAKES, gosh darnit.’

So what did this mommy do?

She consulted Pinterest.

I mean. What would YOU do?

And for the next 15 minutes? We MADE SOME SNOWFLAKES, Y’ALL.

And they looked DANG good.

Allison said, after we were done, ‘You know what, Mommy? I’m going to walk up to Madison and say…HEY! Look at THESE snowflakes my mom made!’

And then I said, ‘You know what else you say asyouarewalkingaway? You say ‘SUCK IT MADISON!!!”

Her face literally fell open at that statement I just made.

And then we busted it out laughing.

The day I was the best mommy…for making RADICAL snowflakes…and the day I was the worst mommy….for teaching my kid to use ‘SUCK IT’ correctly in a sentence.
