The Top Ten Sucky Mom Moments of the Summer!

  1. My son started back to school yesterday. He’s 16 and a junior in high school. All of his friends are driving. They’re all getting their licenses. All summer long I had nothing but time on my hands to take him driving. Did I? Once. Where is he now? Out riding his bike.

    I suck.

  2. Kathleen Brooks says:

    Apparently my daughter was supposed to keep a reading log and had to read a certain number and kind of books… Day before school we get an email from the teacher welcoming us to the class and telling us to bring the log. 9pm at night daughter is sitting on the bed ferociously writing all the books I’m digging out and asking “Did you read this? Crap, we need another non-fiction book. Here read this about Taylor Swift.”

  3. Cindy Colwell says:

    My kids did all the fun activities with their friends and their parents. I planned on repaying the favor and take their kids to do things but I never did. Is it wrong to just offer them cash for their trouble?

  4. Destini says:

    There were times this summer that I didn’t even get up for breakfast. My kids literally ate cereal out of the box.

  5. Tiffany King says:

    I let my 16 yr old stay up all night countless time, just so I could see how long he would sleep in the next day. (That way I wouldn’t have to worry about lunch items.)
    Pretty sure that’s earning me a ticket to bad mommy hell.

    Now you have me wondering if my son has a reading list or summer homework ?

  7. Tina Hobbs Payne says:

    I can pretty much say “ditto” to your entire list. My son is 12 and is complaining about not finding velcro shoes in his size. Lol. My daughter’s reading speed decreased because we played hard and didn’t read enough. I spent every day with both of my kids. We had a fantastic summer. I cry when they go back to school. I love watching my kids grow up but hate that they are growing up so fast. #noperfectwaytomom. ❤
