I just took a quiz. As a stay at home dad currently taking care of a sick kid I have a lot of time to not enjoy the recent warm weather and instead watch Laurie Berkner DVDs and surf the internet. Yea!
Here’s the quiz I took and my answers:
- Do you have children under the age of 18? Yes, one
- Do you live in Mecklenburg County? Yes
- Do you try to eat the recommended 5 servings of produce per day? Yes, as a vegetarian with a vegetarian child I’m very cognizant of what we eat
- Do you provide your children with meals that include fruits and veggies? Every day, three times a day.
These are the questions you have to answer to be eligible for Mecklenburg County’s Super Mom contest. I dug a little deeper into the guidelines and found this:
Standards for being nominated for this honor are the same for all people no matter their race, color, creed, national origin, political belief, handicap or age
It appears that no where within the contest guidelines is it stated that you need to be able to lactate or menstruate, so I nominated myself and think I’m a shoe-in. I’m not sure why my role of making sure my child eats healthy meals that I provide makes me a “mom”, but what the heck.
I hope I win the contest- the benefits are a $30 gift card, other prizes, recipe swaps, and the chance to “promote my passion for fruits and veggies in the media” which sounds pretty cool.
It doesn’t come to a vote, so I don’t need to buy you all off to vote for me, but I promise that if I’m given the chance to promote my passion for fruits and veggies in the media I’ll wear my uber-tight MomsCharlotte t-shirt for at least one appearance. If that doesn’t scream “this guy has a passion for fruits and veggies” I really don’t know what does.
Oh, and if you think you're just as super a mom as me, you can register yourself here.
