The Oscars are this Sunday night and I don’t know about you, but I’ve only seen two of the movies— Birdman and American Sniper. I will be rooting for them blindly throughout the show, since they are all I know.
Parents are usually too busy to take any me time for something as trivial as a movie. We prefer to use our precious childless hours for things like alcohol and facebook. This is why, I have put together the Baby Oscars, a series of awards that honor the real stars of our lives— our children.
What are the categories? Who got nominated? What will they win?
SO MANY QUESTIONS! Can’t you just be quiet for a second and LISTEN??!!!!
Sorry, that was the parent in me coming out.
The categories and nominations were determined by sorting through over 1000 submitted photos on the Mommy Shorts facebook page. The winners will be announced on Monday and the prizes will be much like the real Oscars— bragging rights, accolades, jealousy from your so-called friends and a trophy to display on your mantle. Except this trophy will be in the form of a Mommy Shorts mug.
I expect each parent to mug their winner and give an acceptance speech, FYI.
How will the winners be determined? By votes from the academy. Except, instead the academy being made up of a bunch of old people with two much money and mansions in the Hollywood Hills, they will be all of you. Voting will be open until the Oscars are over Sunday night.
And the nominations are….

You can vote once a day up until the end of the real Oscars, when the votes will be officially tallied. As I mentioned, there is no big prize with this one. It’s just for fun. Winner gets bragging rights and a Mommy Shorts mug, color of your choosing.
So no funny business or fighting is necessary!
Good luck to everyone and as they always say— it is an honor just to be nominated.
