Momma Said Enter the Housewife Awards

Isn't it time you got a pat on the back for a job well done?

Every two weeks, MommaSaid awards one lucky mom for her daily duties as a mom. The Housewife Awards recognize moms for the relentless, exhausting, incredible and often amusing things they experience--and endure--daily.

Enter the Housewife Awards for a chance to win a signed print copy of Murder Takes the Cake by Gayle Trent! Read Gayle's interview on MommaSaid HERE.

Instructions for entering the contest:

What are we looking for? We're not looking for Mother of the Year. We're looking for a funny story or situation that sums up the occasional craziness of at-home motherhood. We want to hear what you put up with on a day-to-day basis, not that you're coming up with the cure for cancer while the baby naps (though I would appreciate it).

PLEASE BE SPECIFIC. Don't tell us you cart four kids around in your mini-van, clean floors and volunteer at school while taking night classes. We're all doing that! Tell us a story of something that happened to you that shows how exhausting and confounding motherhood can be. Humor is a plus. Poop is fine, but really not necessary every single time. Check out the awards archives for examples.

Share your story and enter to win!
