Mars Needs Mom: Top 10 count down of what my kids would miss...

In conjunction with Social Moms and in honor of the March 11th release of "Mars Needs Moms, they asked bloggers to list the top ten things you think your kids would miss most about you if you were abducted by aliens/Martians!  In the movie nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green) finds out just how much he needs his mom (Joan Cusack) when she’s nabbed by Martians who plan to steal her mom-ness for their own young.

Well my children are 3 and 5, so I hope they would miss their mommy dearly!  We do follow a pretty strict daily schedule, so any interruptions can disrupt their daily schedule.  If a little green man can down and took me away, I am sure that would be a major disruption!
Well here are my top ten countdown:

#10.  Saturday morning breakfast.  Every Saturday morning we have a tradition of making Oatmeal chocolate chip pancakes or Belgian waffles!   Cause you know if mom was gone, no way daddy would be making the above mentioned!

#9.  Staying up late when daddy is working.  My husband works basketball games in the evenings a few nights a week.  If the kids were good and well behaved that day I may let them stay up a little later than normal.

#8.  Baking time.  I am an avid baker and always make a yummy treat or two.  The kids each have their own aprons and pull up a stool and help.   They help me measure by using their cups (their hands).

#7.  Grocery shopping with mommy.  They have a blast carrying the list, loading up the cart, etc.   We even cut coupons together and they match the coupons to the item.  It is something we enjoy on Saturdays!

#6.  Game night.  Whether it is playing on the Kinect,  going bowling, Dominos, Memory, etc.  we make a point of having a family game night once a week.  It is something we all look forward to!

#5.  Movie night!  What kid doesn’t love snuggling on the couch with mom and watching a movie.    They would also miss munching on my popcorn!

#4.  Painting nails and getting girly.  This would only apply to my daughter, but without mom around who would be there to do her hair besides putting it in headband in (dad), paint her fingers and toes? I also let the kids do my hair.  Who else would they be able to make look like a rock star?

#3.  Listening to Mommy’s awful renditions of bedtime songs/lullabies.   They never admit I have an awful voice and always ask me to sing them a song.  Who else would be there to sing “Jesus Loves Me” out of tune?

#2.  Mommy hugs and kisses!

#1.  Not having a complete family.  Without mommy, the family would be incomplete.  Every night we share what we did that day, no matter how big or small.

So I ask you to think about your family.  What would your kids miss most about mommy being Martian-napped?
