After reading Rozanne’s recent post ‘Scumbags and Superstars’, I thought it would be fun to keep a running tally going this week. The scumbag comes pretty naturally I have to admit, but it was fun to find and concentrate on the superstar moments.
Heres how I measured up:
I finished the ice cream AND took one of their beloved cookies. Scumbag.
But…I took them out for burgers and milkshakes. Superstar!
I refused to play hockey in −30degrees C. Obviously scumbag.
But….I did haul my pregnant booty off the couch to take shots on my goalies inside. Superstar!
In lieu of goodnight read alouds, I’ve been pulling out the audiobooks so I can read my own books. Scumbag.
But…I read this book at least a dozen times over, pretending I had no idea where goldbug was, even though I’ve been reading this book non-stop since 2005. Superstar!
There was absolutely no (formal) homeschooling this week….the family is divided on this one.
How about you? Are you walking the fine mama line between scumbag and superstar?
