Bad Ass Mama

So, if you actually know me, you know I'm about as far as bad ass as you can get. But deep down, I feel I am a bad ass. And I do certain things, during the day, that definitely qualify as bad ass.

1. Sometimes, I sneak in a nap.

2. Sometimes, when I cook, it's from the frozen food section.

3. All meals do not contain all 4 (or however many there are now) food groups.

4. If we don't have to go anywhere, I don't get dressed. Neither do the kids. That's double bad ass. Gotta start 'em young, right?

5. If I don't want to go to the store, I've been known to call the husband and ask him to pick up a specific something on the way home. It's generally wine...or medication.

6. I don't always wait till 5pm to pour a drink.

7. I've been known to tell the Middle One to put on the Oldest One's underwear, if the Middle One doesn't have any in her drawer.

8. Unless it's summer, there's a good chance my kids aren't getting bathed on a daily basis.

9. I've never joined a Mom's Club or Mommy and Me or any of those kinds of groups.

10. My children have heard me swear...more than once.

That's just a small list of the bad-assness that is me.

And you, dear Reader, how do you show your own bad assness?

Write on Edge

I've been following a new page: Write on Edge

I've been following this page in hopes of getting my lazy (ok, not actually lazy, because I am home with 3 kids, doing some freelance work, there's piles of laundry, everyone insists on eating, blah, blah, blah) ass working on writing on a regular basis.

This is my virgin prompt for Write on Edge. This week, they asked us to write a title and tagline for ourselves, for some moment in time, either now or some time in the past.

Here goes:

The Mommy Monologues
Because I spend a lot of time talking to myself.

What do you think?
