Tonight at bedtime Five named me his "Most idiotical buttcheek" as a term of affection.
That went over well.
Last month he deemed me "The Most Annoying Boss of Everything" likely based on my slow response time to MY HOT CHOCOLATE LOOKS LIKE A MOUTH QUICK GET OUT OF THE BATHROOM AND GET YOUR iPHONE QUICK RIGHT NOW I SAID RIGHT NOW.
Or maybe I earned the title due to my never driving him to school, coupled with twice-daily illogical explanation of "because we live 2.75 blocks away and you're a bi-ped."
In any case, it's hard to balance so many tiaras. Luckily mine are stackable.
Yesterday I learned that I made Babble's Top 100 Mom Blogs of 2012, placing in the top 10 for "funniest" and "well-written." I've felt vulnerable about writer-stuff lately, so this came as a welcome surprise. Thanks to Babble and especially to their panelists for this honor, and for sponsoring my over-the-moon moment. Yours in gratitude, Idiotical Buttcheek.
