Finally a Good Mom

My son congratulated me on finally being a good mom for the day.


How crazy is that?


To my knowledge, I was a good mom just about everyday.


I mean, I had my moments like all parents do but I'm a good mom.


That's a fact I could bet my life on.


So what the hell was he talking about?


FINALLY. BEING. A. GOOD. MOM. FOR. THE. DAY

To give a little context;


I didn't want to watch him play Minecraft for the millionth time.


So when he asked...


I said 'later' as in 'when I get done working'.


But instead of there being a later, I kept myself busy with my work all day.


Outside of meal times - I stayed in the room.


Between the two of us:

That was one of the most productive work days I've had in a long time!


When I joined him in the living room he said it.


"Congratulations...You're finally being a good mom for the day!"

Shocked is an understatement.


He said it so intentionally.


It's like he'd been wanting to say something all day.


I felt like I was under attack by my own child in my home.
