See! I TOLD you I'm Funny!

As a SAHM, accolades are few and far between - I feel like a pretty good mom on Mother's Day.
Aside from that, there's always that nagging feeling that I'm not a good enough mom. I should be more fun, cook more nutritious meals, volunteer for more field trips, keep a cleaner home (not to mention van!), plan more educational outings....

However, whenever I get those Mother's Day cards telling me why I'm such a great mom, my kids always say I'm funny. (then again, two of my kids ( the boys) think bodily noise humor is HILARIOUS.)

So, I was really excited when I received the news that I am a finalist in the Columbus Dispatch caption writing contest. FINALLY, something tangible that reinforces my belief that I am indeed the funniest mom in the entire universe. AFTER ALL, a PROFESSIONAL funny guy chose my caption out of over a thousand entries to be one of 11 finalists.

Anyhoo, if you would like to see my entry and decide for yourself, then go to I'm Lennea Truesdell, age 40 for those of you who only know me as Once Upon a Cottage.

Lennea - you are funny! That is great!

I feel the same way about being a mom - unfortunately, at 3, mine is too young to really give me any concrete reinforcement. I figure I've got another few years before she starts telling me I'm a great mom on Mother's Day and the meanest mom alive the rest of the year!

Good luck!

P.S. Love the charms!
