How I attempted to salvage my nomination for Mom of the Year.

Recently, I promised my munchkin I'd take him to the zoo. When he woke up, I said "do you know what day it is?" and he proclaimed "Zoo day!" and I said, "You're right!"

Time went on. We got ready to go to the zoo. It was cloudy, but I'd checked the reports, no rain until the evening. (liars!!!)

I may or may not have said "You need to _______ or we can't go to the zoo." and "Please hurry we don't want to be late for the zoo!" a couple of times.

Let's just say the zoo was hyped.

Then, I opened the front door, and it was raining buckets.


I had to tell my kid "I have some bad new baby, it's raining. Do you know what that means?"

He said "No elephants" in the most heart breaking lip quivering way EVER. I almost died. Really.

So, in a desperate attempt to salvage his nomination for me, his one and only mother (this nomination is important seeing as he's my one and only kid- I don't get another shot at the award for '10 people!) I pulled out the only trick I could think of.

Elephant pancakes.
I'm not sure it was enough.


  1. I love seeing the elephants at the zoo, but pancakes trump just about everything.

  2. Sooooooo cuuuuuute! Thats SO creative and Im just sure you are appreciated :)

  3. Oh, you totally win for Mother of the year!! Those pancakes are so cute...very sweet of you and I'm sure he appreciated it.

  4. Those are adorable! :) (How do you do that? I've tried and my shapes always turn into blobs.)

  5. still Mom of the Year for sure!
