Bright Starts 14 Days of Laughter Winner!

Oh my goodness, this was a fun one! Your stories were hilarious.

I had such a hard time picking the winner for this one as your stories were hilarious. Don't be offended if your story wasn't the "funniest" - I think the stories I found the funniest are things I've done myself or can imagine myself doing. Thus, why I enlisted a few friends to help me out. Interestingly we all ended up choosing the same story, so that made things easy.

In true Ryan Seacrest style, here are a few of my favs before I announce the winner:

Best mommy brain moment? I would have to say that being a stay at home mom with 3 children under the age of 3 has to be based on a routine! I did however, get a chance to go shopping by myself the other day. Unfortunately, in the middle of shopping, I looked down, and realized that my children were nowhere in sight! I totally freaked out, and ran thru the store, ran out to my car, called my husband..... and yeah, I really enjoyed my child-free day.
One Frugal Lady

I've had so many mommy brain moments and my current mommy brain isn't remembering them haha. One that comes to mind...I have a 2 year old and a 2 month old. After having my baby I was very sleep deprived. I finally got..ahhhh...A SHOWER! An accomplishment for many new moms! I was standing under the steaming hot water SO enjoying my shower. I washed my hair and put conditioner...All over my face. Yes I was standing there loving every minute of my shower when I realized I was massaging hair conditioner all over my face. I was just glad to have a shower who cares what I was rubbing on my face!

When my son was about 3 months old he had one of those cases of explosive diarrhea - not fun. I got him all undressed and into the tub which promptly overflowed wetting the entire bottom of my PJ bottoms (yes, I was still in my pj's in the middle of the day). After I got him all cleaned up I lifted him up and he proceeded to vomit all the way down the back of my shirt. So, I took off my shirt, again focusing on the baby, not myself. It was only then that heard the front door open and my sister came in with the CABLE MAN, who had just pulled up to adjust some random cable issue. So there I was in my bra and underpants, with a naked baby and my sister, and of course the cable man. It was incredible embarrassing, but a good story.

I cannot recall a truly funny mommy brain moment as it relates to me. But a friend of mine had a truly mommy brain moment when her child was about eight months old. she had nursed her child and was sitting with him on the couch when the doorbell rang. She set the baby down, and went to the door to open it. In front of her was the UPS guy. She recalls him looking at her a little strange, but he asked her to sign for the package which she did. He handed the package to her and then turned to leave, and made one last backward glance. She thought this a bit odd. After setting the package down she went into the bathroom where she saw herself in the mirror and realized that the flap on her nursing top was wide open. She had given the UPS guy quite the little show.

And, now, for the winner.... chosen by both a non-Mom, a Mom and a random number generator - so this girl was destined to win!

You may ask - random number generator? Well, this is usually how I determine the winners of my giveaways. I know, it was not the way I was supposed to select the winner for this one but, honestly, I couldn't decide which was my favourite!! After two cuts, I had my list of favs down to seven... the random number generator came back with number 3... which just happened to be the story my two girlfriends picked out, and once I read through them again, I agreed.

Congratulations - LEEN! Your story was hilarious, unique and totally something I could see myself doing.

For those of you who didn't get a chance, here it is:

My mommy brain moment came after the birth of my 2nd child. I was taking her to her first pediatrician's appointment and of course had to fill out the reams of paperwork they had for me. I filled out the entire set of paperwork with my son's name!! Oh, but it only gets better! Both of my children's names start with an "A" and when they brought my error to my attention, I could not for the life of me remember my new daughter's name!!! So there I am, standing at the receptionist's desk with a line of mommies waiting behind me and I could not come up with her name for I kid you not, a good 2 minutes! So embarrassing!!!

Thanks to all who entered - check back next week for another chance to win great Mommy-baby items!
