Not the meanest mom ever

Earlier this week, Julianne left her lunchbox on the bus in the morning on the way to school. Her lunch box contained her brand new thermos with Ramen noodles in it. She was inconsolable. Her teacher finally called me at 10:00 a.m. (since telling her she would just have to buy lunch was not making her happy.) I dutifully drove to the bus barn, found her lunch, drove to the school, and dropped it off for her.

That night she said, "Mom, you know . . . you're not the meanest mom ever because not all moms would have gone looking for their kids' lunchboxes, thanks!"

So if I am not THE meanest, what am I? 2nd? 3rd? and so then which one of you is THE meanest?

Don't worry--there are many people out there that when they say, "It doesn't suck." that is a compliment. So, from her 8 (or is it now 9) year old perspective, it may be a great compliment.

Don't worry, it's been well established that I am the meanest.

I've been given that title by more than just my boys at time. A whole scout den gave it to me at the end of a day of scout camp. It's okay, I know that I am raising gentlemen.

LOL! That is so funny! I had a semi same story, where I told my kids to do something and they all started to complain, and I was like "I know, I know! I'm the meanest mom EVER!" and Dante chimes in, "well, you aren't THE meanest mom ever", and I was thinking the same thing you were- like well then where DO I fall into place! LOL!

And how nice of you to go looking for her lunch box:)
