Mama Kat's Losin' It Writing Prompts: 1.) A mom fail moment.

First of all... I'd like to say to you (and have you realize) that I have a lot, and I mean a lot of mommy fail moments. Don't know what these are? Um... right... In case you're serious (which I doubt...), a mommy fail moment is that moment when you realize that YOU as a mommy (or other parental-type) failed. You or your kid did something bad (or just not good or rude or...) and you realize it's your fault because the example you set wasn't so hot.

If you don't have a lot, or at least some, then you should write a book. And the rest of us would buy it, because... we want to see how to raise your child perfectly. Uh, huh. Yeah...

Anywho... it was hard for me to pick just one. ONE that wouldn't totally embarrass my kids. ONE that wouldn't totally embarrass me. ONE that wouldn't be judged so harshly (because we have those, too!). ONE that I really didn't mind blogging about. It was really hard. So... here goes!:

The Fart Fairy
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away... a little girl was passing gas (quite a lot) on an ordinary Springtime Day.
The girl was super sad and felt rumbly in her tummy; she didn't like the way it smelled. It made her feel crummy.
Her loving mother assured her to all beings it was inherent and that the smell wasn't quite always apparent.
And so her mother sat her down and told her a fairy story... full of breaking wind and all the glory.
Of witches, goblins, fairies and fairy dust, the tale cast a spell while the little girl fussed
And pouted and cried and shouted
But then her mommy told her about the Fart Fairy... a wing-ed chubby chick, who was slightly hairy...
Who came in the night and waved her wand, taking farts from all the children as they yawned
While they were sleeping, she'd poof them out and take the gas to prevent the children from weeping.
The girl laughed and giggled, guffawed and wiggled
And wanted to hear more... Her mother was just happy that she was back to before
To happiness and peace in the air; previously she'd thought she'd pull out her hair!
And so it goes... that every time the young girl farted, the giggling fits and laughing started
And then one day, she went to school and there was nothing in the golden rule
About not farting, not passing gas, and when the children gathered in mass...
Someone tooted! They all laughed and made awful an awful joke, then the little girl up and spoke...
"Don't worry, I guess the Fart Fairy didn't visit you last night. Don't worry. Sleep tight tonight and all will be right.
The Fart Fairy will come. She'll wave her wand and take your farts away. And when she does, you won't have much gas that day."
Needless to say, the mommy has had many teachers and parents calling and asking lots of questions where EVERYBODY mentions...
The moral of the story? Be careful what you stories you share. They go around. Any time. Any place. Any where...

And that, my fellow failing friends (or non-failing!) is a Mommy Fail Moment! Ta-da! and should you want to check out what others wrote about, or join in yourself, please check out Mama Kat's Losin' It. We'd love for you to share, too!


  1. LMAO! I love this! I think the Fart Fairy will stay with me for a long time :) .. Just visiting from Mama Kat's!

  2. OMG! This is one of the funniest things I have ever read! I laughed out loud just reading the title!!!

  3. Oh, that is so perfect!! I am still laughing! I don't consider it a fail when you manage to make your child laugh instead of cry! Life has way too many crying moments and not near enough laughing ones. Good for you mom! Visiting from Mama Kat's

  4. Are you kidding me? That is so, so funny! But it made for an awesome story so I'm glad it happened! LOL
