In The Motherhood: For Moms, By Moms



If you're not already familiar, In The Motherhood is a series of stories online written by real moms, for moms. What is unique is that you can submit your stories, have them voted on and if your story wins, you can watch it acted out by professional actors. Starring in the second season of these fabulous webisodes are Leah Remini (The King of Queens fame), Jenny McCarthy (model/actress/author) and Chelsea Handler (stand-up comedian). Check out this webisode from the second season, "Infamous 3rd Date" where Chelsea Handler's character, Heather, gets a little "surprise":



The shows are a hoot! I think it's fantastic that we can share our real life situations with other parents in this way and really get a good laugh out of them. Unfortunately, the submissions are closed for this season but I suggest we all keep an eye out for the debut of season three and if you're anything like me, I'm sure you'll have a couple of good stories to share too and who knows...one of these fine actresses may just play the part of YOU!

In coordination with In The Motherhood and Suave, we have a fabulous Suave prize package (including a couple of other goodies) for one lucky MTW reader!

TO ENTER:

Leave a comment on this post, including your first name and email address. You can type out your email address like this: yourname at yahoo (we'll know it's dot com unless you specify otherwise).

Feel free to share any of your disasterous/hilarious parenting stories in your comment if you'd like! A winner will be chosen (at random, not based on comment) at 10 PM, Wednesday, March 19th. Good luck!

While you're waiting to find out if you're the winner, head over to In the Motherhood's website to read some great stories and join the discussions on the message boards.

I have a 2 year old and a 4 year old and LOTS of hilarious parenting stories (my 2 year old daughter is currently rebeling against clothes...naked & naughty is a bad combination in this house).

A particularly disastrous parenting moment was when my oldest son was potty training. I left him watching a movie while his younger brother slept and went downstairs to put a load of laundry in. Less than 5 minutes later my son appeared in the laundry room doorway, naked, holding his poopy diaper and COVERED in poop. He said "mommy, I pooped" and I said "NO NO NO NO NO!" and followed the trail of poopy footprints and handprints all the way up my carpeted stairs, through my kitchen, through my living room and down the hallway to his room where he had apparently taken off his poop filled diaper and stepped in it and wiped it on his quilt and himself. The house absolutely stank.

I wept. I hollered at him (woke the baby up in the process). I gave him a roll of paper towel and still sobbing I made him help me clean up. My poor little boy was crying and saying "I'm sorry mommy". I called his father at work and when he heard my hysterics he came home and rescued us all. Luckily he only works 2 minutes from our house.

He never did that again. Poor kid.

I gave my son his lunch of vegetable soup at the counter in the kitchen. When I turned around I found him spooning the soup into the toaster and pushing the button down. I asked why he was doing that he said he wanted to warm up his soup. I had alphabet pasta cooking on the coils in my toaster.

My oldest daughter is 16 years old, and she is in ROTC (Air Force division). She was shining her shoes for competition the other day and was complaining to her father (ex-Army man), that she couldn't get them shined enough.

He told her that the only advice he had was to put a little elbow grease into it.

She came back out of her room about 10 minutes later looking a bit perplexed saying, "Ok.. I don't have alot of grease on my elbow, and I tried rubbing it on with my elbow, but it's hurting the bone."

Yea... we all died laughing, and I can't see her EVER living that one down!

Great giveaway!! Thanks for letting me share!

I have three boys, and each has had their disasters!! My favorite is when my son got a hold of his wet diaper, took it off, and proceeded to slam it against every wall, toy, shelf, piece of floor, etc., until that little nasty gelly stuff was covering every inch of his bedroom!!
