Also, according to Teen Mom, you should beat your Baby Daddy, and start dating again, 2 months after your baby is born and you split from the dad.

The Mom @ Babes in Hairland said...

Dang I'm doing it all wrong. Oh, but wait ... Does having a hair blog rank up there with beauty pageants? Cuz if it does, then I'm the best mom ever! LOL

Kate said...

How about trades places with her complete opposite and lets a total stranger raise her kids for a week.

laughingmom said...

That's a really Good mother - throw in some public drunkedness and hoarding and you could be Great!

Nicole said...

Can I get an amen?

Sandra said...

I agree with Kristina's comment.
And can I just say: I knew I was on to something when I stayed glued to the Toddler's in Tiaras marathon for 7 straight hours.

Katie said...

I do think the octuplet thing should get a bit more percentage...otherwise...I'm right there with ya! And the Teen Mom comments...again (Kristina P and I seem to be in agreement a lot lately)...don't forget the whole beat up Baby Daddy thing!

Lourie said...

I guess Mrs. Brady is no longer a suitable role model...wait she had Alice. Never mind.

Missy said...

I would make a Great Reality TV Mom! LOL

Mamma has spoken said...

Guess I am the next one to agree with Kristina's comment.

Oilfield Trash said...

That is so true.

middle child said...

Beauty pageants for little girls would be awesome IF they were dressed as children, instead of tiny women. The whole thing makes me sick.

Pat Tillett said...

That is so funny! One of my daughters made me watch a little of that show. Oh man, I wanted to just shake those mothers!!!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Twisted!

mintifresh said...

I think it all begins with going through an entire pregnancy oblivious to the fact you are indeed pregnant, continue to drink, dope up and sleep around and then act shocked when you go into labor, claim it must be constipation and then suddenly have a healthy baby.

The Zany Housewife said...

Oh snap. I'm in trouble then. And (according to reality tv) the worst mother in the world goes to...me.

Lazarus said...

I'm just impressed with your ability to create that graph. Bravo!

Jana said...

you make me laugh ...thanks, I needed that!

Connie said...

Why wait 'til your daughter is 4?

Kristen said...

Hello, my name is Kristen and I am a Crap Mom and there is nothing you can do to convince me to be otherwise! ;0

Joann Mannix said...

Wait. You forgot get yourself a kicky mullet, start shooting out kids by the second and give them all J names as kicky as your mullet. The next ones will be named JamOnIt and Jamabamalama.

Deborah said...

How on earth did my daughters turn out even remotely normal?? hehehe

GrammyMouseTails said...

I.am. such.a.failure!!!
I had boys, but I bet I could of gotten them to join in in 14 year old pageants, as judges.

Bits-n-Pieces said...

don't forget the moms that leave their families to survive in the wild, or learn to cook, or something!

Amanda said...

Crap! My kid is 4 and I haven't entered her in ANY pageants! I knew she was to well adjusted. I'm getting my wedding dress sized to fit her as soon as I log off. It's a start.

She's never going to have her own reality show now *sob*

Corrina Terry said...

Funny! (Except I LIKE Sarah Palin. Why do all of the Dems hate her so much??? I don't get it. You'll have to explain that one to me.)

Brittney said...

haha gotta love reality tv

Emmy said...

Oh those kid beauty pagent shows just make me mad. I must admit I got suckered into watching an episode about one and the director totally took off with everyone's money and never awarded the winners.

Teachinfourth said...

Wow, and this is the reason why my mom never became a mother...

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

This sorta makes me want to cry, especially when we KNOW as teachers how tame some of these are.

Impulsive Addict said...

So will your daughter be entering in the world o' pageants soon? Wait...do you have a daughter? If not, then you need to get one so your wife can be Mother of the Year for dressing her up (hair, makeup and fake teeth included).

Susan in the Boonies said...

I am delighted to be non-real.

If that's Reality, then I want to be as imaginary as I can possibly be.

Wait: you CAN read this, right? I'm not just making this up!!!

Liz said...

Because putting actual "reality" on TV would be boring. :)

Julie Musil said...

My day is ruined. Staying at home and spending time with them doesn't even appear on the graph? *pounds fists on table*

purseblogger said...

I tried to become governor and fight bears w/ my bear hands but it didn't work out so well for me. Darn that Palin!

M-Cat said...

According to the graph, I suck at being a mother.
I guess I will have to stick with making my kids be responsible, clean up after themselves, work and be honest. Graph be damned!

Ms Bibi said...

I totally failed(according to reality TV)....especially because I did not give a birth to a girl I can exploit through beauty pageants..

Marnie said...

According to reality TV, I suck at being a mom...I make my kid read...oh the shame ;0)

This graph is funny but so true!

Out of My Mind said...

This should go under a "Sad but True" title.

Boy do I have an opinion on tot pagents!>>>>>>>kt

Pat Tillett said...

Oh man! One of my daughters "forced" me to watch an episode of the pageant show. I don't know who needs the biggest beating, the parents or some of the brats...

Lene said...

I totally suck as a Mom.

Where is that entry form for that next toddler pagent???
