New game: Are You Mom Enough?

At least we can gain something from the silly attempt at provocation (I guess it worked actually) that TIME magazine gave us this week with its Are You Mom Enough? cover.

Am I mom enough to breastfeed a grown boy on the cover of a national magazine? No. I am mom enough to give him cause for therapy, but not THAT mom enough.

Anyway, welcome to the Are You Mom Enough game! Please add your own AYME challenges in the comments.

  • AYME to be literally shat on this morning, clean up baby, her clothes, the floor, and forget about yourself until later?
  • AYME to pee standing up to avoid the pee on the toilet seat while your son stands in front of you with his pants down because he doesn’t want to pick them up until you do?
  • AYME to use one hand to block your daughter from crawling between her brother’s legs while he’s bent, ass up, and you’re hunched over wiping his bum?
  • AYME to understand why all my examples have to do with potty???

    AYME to face the growing pile of leftover melted candy from the goody bags you hid from your son under the passenger seat of your car? For three days in 30 C weather?

  5. Liz says:

    AYME to hold back the angry cursing when you accidentally sit your tired ass down on a freakin Megablock? The single kind?

    It took me a while to think of a good one…but then I remembered this (hope I’m not sharing too much, thank goodness for the anonymity of the internet): AYME to actually use your toddlers potty so that they will finally get the point already of what to do with it?!?!?! (clue: not wear it as a hat)…don’t judge me, it worked!
