You know I’ve been going on and on about my camera…..and how I am patiently waiting (hint,hint) to get my DREAM CAMERA….the one I am in love with….the one and only….CANON REBEL…..and nothing else would do.
Well, few days ago I was browsing around….catching up with some reading over at the fabulous SITS GIRLS blog when I came across Bleach It Away campaign.
Not only I could win $25,000 from Clorox, but I can also win CANON REBEL camera from SITS Girls for being a part of the campaign…..all I have to do is to share my Messiest Moment…..with pretty much the whole wide world…..piece of cake.
I have two boys….messy moments are daily occurrences in my life….
Then I thought…..you know what….anybody have messy moments living with boys in their life…..
How about The Messiest Mommy Moment…..especially when the mommy in question is a detail oriented clean freak with OCD….
How did you know I am talking about myself?
Well, here it goes….not my proudest moment, but one of the funniest and definitely messiest moments of my life.
….It was August 2009….scorching hot…..A/C couldn’t keep up…..
It was my youngest son’s 7th birthday. As every year I spent weeks planning and preparing special theme cake for him.
It took me three days….working during the night and early morning before the heat fills the kitchen….
The cake was finally ready….all it needed were small tiny details.
As every year the whole family and friends gathered at our local pool for Sam’s Pool Party. After the pool party everyone gathers at our house for BBQ and birthday cake.
I left the pool party by myself 30 minutes earlier to get a head start and finish the cake.
The house was HOT…..I was sweating bullets….
It was time to take the three tier cake out of the fridge….then it happened…..SLIP….BANG….BUM…..CRASH….
I was on the floor surrounded by my son’s birthday cake….cake was everywhere….I was MAD….I was UPSET….I was HYSTERICAL….
Suddenly I really don’t know what happened….it was probably the combination of heat….lack of sleep and anger, but I went nuts.
As I was sitting on the floor I grabbed pieces of cakes and I started throwing them around….there was cake everywhere…I was throwing the cake and screaming….
…..the kitchen door opened….and there they were my husband and the birthday boy.
First….the looks of disbelief followed by hysterical laugh….followed by yelling at my older son in the driveway….”Hurry up, you gotta see this….mommy lost her mind ….this is epic”.
Yup, there you have it….my messiest moment….
Btw, I collected myself….hubs cleaned up the kitchen with Clorox (of course) while I had a shower and while everyone was busy enjoying delicious BBQ I managed to whip up a delicious Chocolate Swiss Roll with whipped cream filling….cause that’s the way I roll.
….and don’t worry….you won’t find any pictures of me losing my mind…I made sure of that!
