I won a new prize in the awesome mom category today.
I have for some time been adding up points for all the ways that I am a good mom.
Cut his tiny hand on his fourth day of life when I was cutting off the hospital band: check (He still has the scar!)
Found rocks from our fireplace in his mouth: check
Set down a knife on the table within his reach: check
Turned around and found him holding said knife: double check
Found leaves in his mouth: check, check and check
Found him holding my razor, which I set down on the tub while he was in the bathroom: check
Today, though, I set a new record. I locked Judah in the car. With all the windows up.
See? Awesome mom, right here.
It was a total fluke thing where I was tossing the keys onto the front seat as I was getting out and about to get Judah out. As I closed my door, the keys fell off the seat and into the shutting door, which closed on the lock button on our remote. And just like that, in a split second, Judah was locked in.
Thankfully, we were in Seneca with my dad who actually has a patient who is a locksmith. He got there in about 10 or 15 minutes and was able to open the door fairly quickly. Poor Judah was drenched in sweat, probably mostly because of all the screaming he had been doing, but otherwise seemed fine. Thank you, Mr. Allgood Locksmith Man, for saving my baby.
Yeah. I'm awesome.
What have you all done that would put you in contention with me for the awesome mom prize?
