Scholastic Informative - Scholastic sent me a "Great Mom Award"

Review by 39417 on 2007-05-30
ORANGEVALE, CALIFORNIA -- I ordered some books for my little three year old princess(Disney books)from Scholastic Books.The books are great,my daughter loves them.Today I recieve a "great mom award",its just like a thank you for ordering their books.It looks like an award with a golden seal that says "best mom",and it has your name in bold print,with some writing.

I am a "GREAT DAD",not Mom.

I just think it was funny,and though i'd share it.
And yes it is hanging on the fridge.

If the father is ordering the books they should have a great dad award also and give it according to who is buying the book for the child.

Why do parents need this sort of ego trip crap???! If your a good mom or dad...you don't need a book to advertise it for you.

I think it's great that you had a sense of humor about it. I'm sure your princess thinks it's silly as well.

You'd think they'd have a GREAT PARENT award instead. Is it so unusual for a dad to buy his kids books?
Pretty funny, though.

ejack - He's not complaining he's just letting them know that sometimes daddies are the one's ordering the book.

Nope not complaning at all,just sharing this story.I dont need an award to know that Im the BESTEST Dad EVER!!!

It was a silly little "thank you"(for buying their books for your child)piece of paper that happens to say "Great Mom Award" on it.

Heh heh ejack, our old landlord used to come to our house to play with his tractor (which he kept on the property and used on the property because he couldn't keep it where he lived). My then-age-4 almost-step-son took to calling him 'the farmer' which my then-3-year-old son tried to do as well....only it came out 'farter'! I thought I would DIE the first time he said that in front of the dude.

(PS- know what award I've got that tells me I'm a good mom? My son, age 5 now, watched a tactic I used with my 1yo daughter. Then he announced that when he grew up and had a baby he hoped he would do the same thing. THAT is when you know you're doing something right.....)

I made my Dad feel good by telling him that I remember all of the advice he gave me growing up,that I ignored,and that I would use it raising my princess.

LMAO imjustasteph!! Your 3 yr old son is OK in my book! :)

From the sound of it...your a good mom!! My mother was the best! She slap the shyt out of you if you were outta line. I appreciate all the slappings she did to me because it kept me out of trouble later on.
