I have have been honored with a second place ribbon this morning.
My very sweet and sensible 4 year old son presented me with a big hug and said
"Mommy I love you, this is for you.
You are the second best mommy in the whole world"
I suppose , given the number of moms in the world, second place is quite an achievement! It's good to know there's always room for improvement and I think that the pressure of maintaining number one would be just too much for me.
Maybe if I ditch the pink bathrobe and start baking more cookies I will make 1st place next year!!
When I ever so humbly asked why I didn't get first place he shrugged and answered
"because that was the only ribbon I could find under Aili's bed"
Look out mom number one...you're going down.
