Count the Bad Mommies

Thursday, July 3, 2008

Well hello there, pleased to meet you

I have been invited to join the Bad Mommies, and I can't pretend that I am not super-excited about it.

So here goes - my first piece of Bad Mommy homework...

1. Post a picture of your kid.

Jackson James. He was only three months old in this photo, but, to this day, it is still one of my most favourite pictures of him.

2. Tell us all 3 things we wouldn't know about you.
1. I really have only two major regrets in my life - a. I turned down a job as a TV presenter and b. that I realised I was totally in love with someone when it was too late to do anything about it.
2. One of the many things I have done is study to be a chef. I couldn't handle working in a professional kitchen though, so I quit to do my post-grad in Journalism at Rhodes University.
3. I have been told I have psychic abilities on more than one occasion, and sometimes I feel like I really do. It's kinda creepy.

3. Tell us some things we wouldn't know about your kid(s).
There's not much here, because I blog about pretty much everything that isn't too personal (my rules = no poo or penis). about this:
  • Jackson is almost autistic in his love of routine
  • he still likes me to hold him when he drinks his evening bottle
  • one of his favourite things to do is to look out of the car window and shout "allo, allo" to people on the side of the road
  • even though he is surrounded by women most of the time, he seems to have no fear/apprehension of men, I am very grateful about this
  • he is happiest without his clothes on and would be naked all the time if I let him ( probably knew this one).

  • 4. What quote/saying best describes the way you feel about being a mommy?
    My favourite mistake.

    5. Who's your Famous Mommy Role Model (haha, like there actually are any good celebrity mommies).
    Um...Britney Spears (JOKES, DUDES). I don't really have any celebrity role models, but I think Dooce and Mommy Pie totally rock.

    6. If you could have one wish granted for your kid(s), what would it be?
    That he have a good and kind heart.
