Saturday Morning

I would like to submit into evidence this picture of my two youngest children on Saturday morning. Note their rapt attention towards the television as they both eat their healthy breakfast of Fruitloops, on the floor. I would like to point out that both children are still wearing the clothes they wore the day before, and slept in, minus their pants. Note the general lack of pants. It is also obvious that no-one has bathed as you can still see Ben's good behavior stamp on his hand from Thursday and his dinner from the night before on his shirt. Note the mess strewn around them on them on the floor. And where was mama? Blogging of course.

PS. To my relatives that might be seeing this pictures. I totally staged this picture for WME. I never actually neglect my children in this way. Are you buying this?

This just looks like normal kids to me. If this is a worst mama event, then I am by far the worst DAD ever. Can anyone beat dropping their 1 1/2 year old son on his HEAD on tile. Yes, I did the set kid on 4' high counter and he leaned forward and I couldn't catch him as his landed head first into the tile and then bounced. It by far is the worst feeling I have ever felt. It was followed shortly after a few months later when Ashley saw him tumble head first down a full flight of stairs. At least those were wood! Now when he's older and someone asks, "were you dropped on your head as a kid", he can answer "TWICE"!

Oh I knew I wouldn't get any points for this picture, I was just going through them and thought, ooph, I should probalby feed or bathe my children or something. Heh.

And Kevin, you are welcome to comment any time. My husband has dropped a couple of our kids and have watched my older daughter tumble down stairs twice and once fall 10 ft through the bleachers at the Shriner circus. It happens.

Someone who can vote should give you extra points for the upturned rug/tripping hazzard. Otherwise, what's wrong with the kids?

@kevin: I dropped my first kid on his head, on tile, in front of my mother-in-law. A few weeks later, my husband let the same kid slide down the basement stairs. Good thing we ordered the child with rubberized corners!

@grandmoo: OSHA cares about the tripping hazard - Worst Mamas fear someone will see the rug and suggest they ought to vacuum, rather than blog!

Love how Clara's bowl coordinates with her two-day-old outfit! She might be smelly and crumpled but, boy, has she got style.
