Hello, hello! It's time for another rendition of "Interview with the Humor Blogger!" Today, I'm talking with Marie from Midlife Dramas in Pyjamas. She's a midlife blogger, big knickers wearer, gin drinker, cocktail lover, delusional dancer, reluctant gym goer, teens & hubby tamer, and cantankerous cat owner. On occasion she goes out in her pyjama top – needs must… Let's get to know her, shall we?
If you've been following my blog regularly, you've already heard about some of my parenting fails. It's really hard for me to choose which was the biggest, or most hilarious, though. Was it the time that I called my pediatrician's office and insisted that my daughter was born on my dog's birthday? The time I drove my kids home to the wrong house? Or got lost on the way to their school? What about the time that I woke up in the middle of the night, tore the sheets and blankets from my bed, and screamed at my husband that we had to find the baby...who was sound asleep in her crib? (And now you know why I drink.) It's really hard to choose! But since I've had so much fun writing about them, I asked some of my blogger friends to share their most hilarious parenting fails with me.

"Nooooo!" he wailed from the back seat. I simply drove. When we arrived at Aldi, I grabbed my purse and my shopping bags, pulled the baby from his car seat, and stood by the open van door waiting on R. "Come on, Buddy. Let's go." "I'm not going!" "You have to," I said. "No I don't!" "Fine. Come on in when you're ready." A power struggle with a 5-year-old isn't really my thing, so I walked off toward the store. And just like I knew he would, R followed me. (At a distance. He had to save face, obvs.)

It's my "yelling medicine." Because no amount of Clorox can bleach away the near permanent pee stains that surround my toilet.

And, thanks to a large mirror that my midwife so kindly … Continue reading 13 Reasons Mommy Needs Wine
