A certain award show is coming up on Sunday and I am so excited that Tiny Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting! Wait, what? It’s Doogie Howser? I’ll miss the comedy wonder twins but it’s always good to have a doctor in the house.
I was looking over the award categories and I just see a few that are missing. I mean, best actor and best actress are important for sure but where are the parenting awards? Surely we deserve a few awards for all we do, right?
Here are some of the missing categories…
Best Footwear goes to the parent who arrived at her destination with all the kids actually wearing shoes.
Best Supporting Footwear goes to the parent who arrived with one kid not wearing shoes but quickly built temporary footwear out of Goldfish bags, the binding of an old Elmo book and crayon wrappers.
Best Use of a Hat goes to the parent who was actually able to keep their toddler’s hat on in 15 degree weather.
Best Supporting Use of a Hat goes to the parent who couldn’t keep the hat on but when scolded by strangers for not keeping their child warm, resisted the urge to yell at them about minding their own business and instead muttered it under their breath.
Best at Not Losing Their Mind goes to the parent whose kid asked the same question 17 times in a 4 minute period and answered the question all 17 times.
Best Supporting at Not Losing Their Mind goes to the parent who answered 15 times before finally shouting, “STOP ASKING ME THE SAME QUESTION. I’M GOING TO HAVE A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN!!!”
Best Use of TV goes to the parent who felt no guilt when letting their toddler (under two) watch TV so they could take a shower in peace.
Best Supporting Use of TV goes to the parent got a kid who had no interest in TV to finally sit down and watch 22 minutes of children’s programming so they could take a shower in peace.
Best Prepared goes to the parent who remembered the diaper bag.
Best Supporting Prepared goes to the parent who remembered the diaper bag, even though it contained no diapers. But at least it had a pair of broken sunglasses, a snow globe and a pair of fuzzy dice.
Best Embarasser goes to the parent who danced wildly to a 90’s pop hit while their horrified teen and her friends looked on at a family party.
Best Supporting Embarasser goes to the parent who sang loudly at every traffic light with the windows down while their teen sat in the passenger seat.
Best at Ignoring Rude Behavior goes to the parent who pretended not to notice their teen’s constant eye rolling.
Best Supporting at Ignoring Rude Behavior goes to the parent who ignored it for awhile and then finally said, “Stop rolling your eyes or else they will get stuck like that. It’s true. Look it up on that fancy Internet you like so much.”
Best Obsessor goes to the parent who worried about their kid’s pacifier addiction for an entire year.
Best Supporting Obsessor goes to the parent who obsessed over the thread count of their kid’s crib sheets for 3 months.
Best Clean Kid Award goes to the parent who got their toddler into the bath after a 15 minute tantrum by promising he could eat a piece of chocolate cake in the tub.
Best Supporting Clean Kid Award goes to the parent who finally got their tween boy to shower after 3 days of soccer games with the promise he wouldn’t have to shower for another 3 days.
