Mother fail? I’m not perfect…

Mother fail is normal

Mother fail is reality, here are just some of mine

  1. Forgot to get my daughter Miss 15 an American Visa she was nearly sent home from her hockey tour.
  2. Nearly hit a man on his red moped yesterday in the city (sorry mate).
  3. No clean uniform for my kids some mornings
  4. No laundry done for 2 days
  5. My bedroom is a mess
  6. My bathroom is a mess
  7. Went to a meeting on child behaviour and some of the stuff they said made me cross
  8. Teacher’s small Easter gift is still sitting on my desk ( It is now July)
  9. Drink far too much coffee
  10. Sleep far too little
  11. Obsess about my new website & linking my blogs and articles
  12. Not responding to emails as fast as I’d like- get side tracked with Twitter & blogging & writing
  13. Getting a little grumpy with myself
