You Might Be A Scary Mommy If....

1 - You've ever washed your children's hands and feet in the sink in lieu of a badly needed bath.

2 - You've ever fed your kids dinner of random various items left over in the pantry and fridge and called it "Silly Snack Dinner."

3 - You've ever threatened to send your kids back to where they came from.

4 - Your child has said "A" is for "Asshole" in public and you're pretty sure she learned that word from you.

5 - You've ever ignored frantic pleas for help [while blogging] and figured that they'd come get you if there was blood.

6 - You've gone hamper diving for jeans for your child to wear to school because well, there just weren't any other viable alternatives.

7 - You've ever dropped off your child at school only to immediately realize they forgot something in the car and you were forced to enter said school wearing only PJ's and no undergarments to speak of.

8 - You've ever longed to leave your house and spend a quiet night at a shady motel down the street ALONE.

9 - You've ever sent your child to school just a little bit sick because things might be easier that way.

10 - You've ever been on a family vacation and wondered why you didn't bring a fricking babysitter!

Blog about your scariness and then hop on over to Scary Mommy for a chance to win a FLIP video camera. Contest ends tomorrow, Thursday, October 22, 2009.
