Do you sometimes lie to your kids?
Oh! You want one of these cookies/candies I was trying to hide from you? That was the last one.
Maybe cheat on your cleaning a bit?
If I re-run the washer/dryer/dishwasher I won't have to unload it yet AND can still feel like I'm accomplishing something.
Let your kids watch more TV than you say you do?
If I play the same movie twice in a row, it only counts as once. Really, I've done the math.
If you answered "Yes!" to any of these questions, you might want to follow along when I post my own Mama Confessions. Just trying to keep it real!
This week, I would like to confess to my readers that:
I hid the good Cabbage Patch dolls so the kids that were over wouldn't mess them up. And by "good" I mean "my." Hey, my mom had her own box of Crayola's we weren't allowed to touch and only she could color with. And I have my own Cabbage Patch Kid(s).
Speaking of Cabbage Patch Dolls, did you see these that were auctioned off for charity during the last presidential election? They make me giggle!
Also this week, I was pretty excited when one of the kids spilled their drink all over the floor in the living room. That meant that, after I wiped up the drink spill, at least one part of my floor was clean. Same goes for when my husband split his toe open and got blood everywhere. More clean floor spots!
And finally, to Reed. Thank you for pretending to believe me when I say, "I'm going to take the fastest shower ever and can you just get Abel's dinner ready and I'll feed him when I get out?" In reality you know that not only will you be giving him dinner, you'll probably be getting him ready for bed, too. And I love that you love me anyways and give me that few minutes in peace without complaining. Also, I'm very sorry you cut your toe.
Join in next week for more Mama Confessions! Do you have anything you'd like to get off your chest?
