Special Saturday Post: The Cecil B. DeMille

We thought the contest was all have OVERWHELMINGLY voted for a Worst Mommy Ever Winner. And, Erika will be giving her acceptance speech later...

However, this is the part where they do the Cecil B. DeMille Award...MommyLand definitely needs a CDB Award, but of course, we think of it as the Cease-to-Be-a-Mom Award. It's for the mom who takes that hour to play on Facebook, drink some coffee, just stare vacantly at the wall, or humming to oneself about the joys of motherhood while rocking in the fetal position...and let your children do, just, whatever.

Kate & Lydia proudly present the CBD Award for this most *inspiring* submission:

So, as usual, I missed the deadline (no surprise there lol) but I thought you might get a kick out of this picture. It's my oldest two boys playing in the dog kennel with their puppy Goofy. It kept them busy for an HOUR!! Worked for me and the dog had fun too, until he kicked them out so he could get some sleep. :)

Thank you so much for your blog. I thought my kids were total freaks of nature until I read your blog and realized that they actually are.

  1. Ha-ha! I have a similar photo of my daughter in a dog kennel. It was taken on the same day she cut her own hair. . .it was "mullet-y looking" I posted it on FB and jokingly said I locked her in the kennel as punishment for cutting her hair. . . my in-laws FREAKED out and called my husband all upset because I locked her in the kennel .

  2. Would it be wrong if I bought a crate even though we have no dog? Hmmm, probably, but it is tempting.

  3. Who cares about the photo? She deserves a prize for the last sentence.

  4. I also have a picture of my daughter in our dog's crate...

  5. I've got a picture of my son like that too... and he's allergic to our dogs. Yep.

  6. I am filled with gratitude. I am not the only mom who will do anything for an hour of peace and sanity -- well, almost anything, with much broader parameters than my neighbors (or at least what they admit to) -- AND my in-laws are not, and will most likely not ever be, on FB.
