Beer Day and Get Over It Day...who knew March had such awesome holidays?!

I've come to realize that the month of March holds some very important holidays. I'm not sure that many people are aware of these holidays so I feel it is my responsibility to enlighten others. Here are some of my personal favorites:

Beer Day (March 1): Aw, man...I totally missed this one. Well, I suppose I can make up for it by drinking 5 beers (you know, to catch up). Problem is, I don't like beer. I think drinking a whole bottle of Bailey's by myself would be a good way to celebrate...who cares if I'm locked in the laundry room while my kids bang on the door, screaming, "Mommy, how much longer is it gonna take you to put the clothes in the washer?". In my mind, I'll scream back, "as long as it takes me to finish this bottle of Bailey's, dammit...now let me celebrate the holiday in peace".

I Want You To Be Happy Day (March 3): Shucks, missed this one too. But honestly in my life every day is "I Want You To Be Happy Day", thanks to my children. And to prove how much I want them to be happy, I will come running out of the shower dripping wet, go downstairs to pour them a glass of juice...only to find my husband standing in the kitchen staring into space. I'll ask, "Why couldn't you just ask Daddy since he's right here in the kitchen?"....they'll say, "But Mommy, I like the way that YOU pour juice". Oh, okay....well, I just want you to be happy.

National Be Heard Day (March 7): Oh, Tim....did you HEAR that? We have been commanded to listen to one another on this day. Today I won't have to say to you, "what do I have to do....light myself on fire to get you to hear me?" and you aren't allowed to look at me, completely dumbfounded, and say, "huh? what? were you talking to me?". And I suppose I'll have to pay attention to what you say when you when you go all Rush Limbaugh on me.

Check Your Batteries Day (March 8): Oh, I'll be checking all the batteries alright. Checking to make sure all the toys DO NOT have batteries in them.

Get Over It Day (March 9): I'm so there. I finally have permission to say to my kids "get over it" every time they whine to me, which is approximately 45 times within a 60-minute period (but who's counting?)

Nap Day (March 9): Finally, an answer to prayer. I think this should be a monthly holiday, like on the 9th of every month, it should be Nap Day. Not for the kids....only for the Moms.

Forgive Mom and Dad Day (March 18): I suppose this is the day where I beg my kids for forgiveness for Get Over It Day. I'll probably make it up to them by letting them eat chicken nuggets for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as allowing them to give each other wedgies and jump on their beds.

Absolutely Incredible Kid Day (March 19): Now this is a totally rockin' holiday!! I will make badges for each of my kids that read "I'm an Absolutely Incredible Kid...Just ask my Mom". And I will spend the whole day telling my kids about all the things I think that make them incredible, like giving the best hugs and kisses, knowing how to make me laugh when I want to cry and checking the mailbox everyday and saying "Oh, they're just bills....just throw them away" (because I think the electric company would totally buy that excuse..."but my kids said I could throw the bill away").

As Young As You Feel Day (March 22): On this day, I will ignore the fact that my 40th birthday is just a mere 11 days away. I will also allow myself to not be embarrassed for secretly enjoying watching Hannah Montana re-runs with my daughter.

Education and Sharing Day (March 27): On this day, I'll educate my children on important things, such as cleaning up after themselves and brushing their teeth 2 times a day. I'll also inform them that spitting on others is illegal in at least 48 states and that wasting perfectly good food makes God sad. I will also allow them to SHARE household chores with me, like folding laundry and sweeping the kitchen floor.

Abby said...

Dang! I missed beer day too. Maybe I will celebrate a belated beer day tonight! And I am up for nap day!

MamaHenClucks said...

I think my favorite day will be March 9th.

Who knew March had all these fantastic days? Do other months do this too?

motheringmymiraclemultiples said...

Okay, I am devistated that I missed beer day....
How could that have happened?

I will have to combine Nap day with a belated beer day....you know...drink a bunch of beer then nap.....Oh wait, that would be "Pass out" day. WTF!

Angela said...

Definately March 1 I'll have to catch up on. At this point I think anything with Liquor counts. And I'm so celebrating "Be Heard" Day. Since I had to ask my daugther 5 times the same damn question before I could get an answer.

You are fabulous.

Amy W said...

You know what I pulled out of this list? Your hubby is a Rush Limbaugh follower too! LOL!

Becky said...

March 3rd was also square root day, 03/03/09, who woulda thunk it!

Laura said...

Loved this post! Thanks for the calendar of events!

2SetsOfTwins4Me said...

Every month should be like this. LOL

I love the battery part, nothing more annoying than a toy playing music non stop while the kid is playing with something else.

A phrase my boys use often "batteries dead momma?"

Katie said...

Thanks for stopping by my page! Your kids are adorable...what a blessing! :)

Musings of the Mrs. said...

I am so happy. I did not miss beer day. No, I did not know about beer day, but I didnt' miss it all the same. And I CANNOT WAIT TILL NAP DAY. I will totally be under my desk that day, taking my nap. Yay for March, and thank you for this very important service.

Karen said...

Who knew March was such a full month?

Although, I'll have to disagree with you about Nap Day. EVERY day should be Nap Day!

Jen said...

Wow who knew that March was so full of holidays and I must say that I am so glad to know that I am not the only one who drinks in the laundry room. Cheers!

Hajar Zamzam Ismail said...

I'm looking forward to "As Young As You Feel Day." I can't wait! I have always believed that a person is only as old as they feel / act.

The Daily Dean Chronicals said...

Thank you for showing me what potential March has for me! I am also mad I missed beer day! Maybe I can make up for too!

eight helping hands said...

Aw shucks I missed beer day too! I like "hear me" day and nap day. How about a "shopping for mom day"!

The High Family said...

And all this time I thought March was a waste of a month?! who knew?

I will have to tell my hubby that he missed Beer Day...too bad.

Oh and you know I am all over Be Heard Day on Saturday...can't wait to take advantage of this "holiday". LOL

Thanks for the laughs!

Ambulance Mommy said...

oooh where did you get this list? I need to publish it for my whole family! :)

"Get over it day"..and
Nap Day" may be my favorites.think my boss will go for it if I tell her its a special holiday and I'm going to need to do these two things? :)

Sharlene said...

I accidentally celebrated Beer Day on March 2nd which happened to be my birthday and evidently Torture Mommy Because Daddy is Out of Town Day. Luckily my brother took me to dinner and I was able to down a few before the night was over.I think March 9th rocks. Get over it and then have a nap. Perfect

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

March 9th is my new favorite day!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

I love March! I'll have to make up for lost time on some of those!

Veronica Lee said...

I love March too. Everything seems to be happening on this month.

Zeemaid said...

wow.. great days. I love the battery day... Make sure all the toys do NOT have batteries *L*.

If only nap day would really work!

mrsbear said...

Is it a coincidence that Get Over It day and Nap day are both on my birthday. I will "get over it" by "napping" through it. After I check my batteries on the 8th of course.

ImakehairROCK4u2 said...

What about "Mommy gets a pedicure day?" I think we should all start a petition to make that a national holiday!

Deb said...

I'm all for nap day. Sign me up!

Creative Junkie said...

Helene ... you are so creative - I love these types of blog posts that you do. You seriously make me laugh.

The Eadle Family said...

I love March! Especially nap day! :)

twinmama said...

March is full of good stuff!

(I like to watch Hannah Montana, too, but the girls don't watch it with me. Seriously, I think that I am still 11 inside.)

Elle said...

Oh nap day! My favorite holiday ever! I really keep the spirit alive by napping year round, not just on the official holiday. Hey, it's the least I can do! Figures I missed beer day. Crap!
