NPSA- Great Mother Edition


Hello, My name is Julie and I am a neglectful parent.

Hello, Julie.

Thanks for that nice warm welcome. Today I am going to be talking about something a little off for an NPSA meeting. I want to award a mom with the very first Mother of the Month award. I am sure you are asking yourself, "Why are we having a Mother of the Month award when we are supposed to be celebrating Neglectfulness?" Here is my answer... I have no freakin' clue. I just thought it would be fun for today since we went to an end of the school-year water party.

And the award goes to ..... (drum roll is going- can you hear it???)



(take the button Laina - it is all yours- at least for this month)

Now here is the reason- She ROCKS! I am pretty sure that she will N.E.V.E.R. be a part of my NPSA group. She always has fun things planned. She threw an end of the school-year water party at her house for the younger kids today and it was a blast. And by a blast I mean, all I had to do was show up with my kids in bathing suits and I sat in a comfy chair while she did EVERYTHING. Ya, okay, so I helped pass out the popsicles. Really, I didn't want to strain too much. This is my last day of freedom for a whole 3 months. From now on I will have 4 shadows following me around. I will have those little/loud voices in my head (and coming from the shadows) saying things like

I'm bored.

We never do anything fun.

Can (insert name here) come over?

Can I go over to (insert name here)'s house?

Can we go to the pool?

Why aren't we having swimming lessons?

Why are you still sleeping?

The list can go on and on. These are only a few of the fun things I have to look forward to hearing. Wish there was some way to get the voices to stop!

So here is just a few of the fun pics I snapped as I sat back and had fun, relaxed, visited with friends, and the like.
