Motherhood Award

You are receiving an award –- either one that already exists, or a new one created just for you. What would the award be, why are you being honored, and what would you say in your acceptance speech?

I’m finally being recognized for my unpaid 24 hour on call job as a carer, teacher, nanny, driver, nurse and much more. My husband and my son have created the Motherhood Award just to thank me. I guess Mother’s day (one day in the whole year, c’mon?) just wasn’t enough.

The award itself is made of pink cardboard and red ribbon, drawn and colored by my son and cut out and written by my husband. The prize that goes with the award is that my husband will take care of my son for the day, while I go for some pampering at the spa, ice-skating (which I’ve always wanted to do but never managed to), a few hours of shopping for something nice for myself, followed by a dinner at a fancy restaurant where I can dress to kill.

For my acceptance speech I’m just going to say “Thank you for realizing I needed to be appreciated.”

Ok now I’m off to make my husband read my post 🙂
