On a message board I read, many ladies post and say they have earned the "Mean Mom" award. This is an award given strictly by kids when they are convinced their parents are the worst and the meanest parents in the world.
I earned it today.
I made my kids do schoolwork on a holiday! The horror.
We didn't do a full day's worth of work. But we did cover our history lessons for the day and the kids did Vocabulary and Spelling and Samantha did a math lesson.
So, not a full day of lessons, but lessons nonetheless.
I've earned the Mean Mom Award today - hand it over!
