My little mom confessions

Part one was so much fun, I had to do it again! Here are a few of the things you may/may not know about me:

+ I always try to be a little healthy/limit my fried/creamy carbs when we eat out but I sneak more than my share of fries/creamy pasta off my kids plate. Kinda defeats the purpose, no?

+ I have tons of crafts for my kids to do and they have tons of fun doing it but I don't really sit and do it with them. I always think of the thousand more things I could be doing with that time!

+ I have a problem with people not picking up after themselves or their kids when they come to my house-- I'm your host, not your maid.

+ I limit my kids' sugar but I've been known to eat more than my share--- usually sneakily!

+ When they were younger, I totally let my kids use my phone in restaurants to buy myself some time... whatever works right?  

+ I hate to be late, hate, hate, hate it... but because of that, I'm always rushing, rushing, rushing to get to places on time-- especially school! And I might 'raise my voice' on 'occasion' to get my kids to comply. (As a sidenote though, the only time C ever got a late slip was when D dropped her to school)

+ When it's naptime, I 'accidentally' skip pages in a book or choose a really short book. When my kid chooses books like "Dragons Love Tacos", I cringe. 

+ Speaking of naptime, I love naptime--- it's an hour or more of free time to do what I need to do! C napped 'til she was almost five and a half and A's just about done with naps and begun skipping them but I'm holding on for dear life! 

And there you have it friends! T-minus two days 'til moving but you can bet that I'm coming back to read those confessions! Linking up with Andrea for Show and Tell Tuesdays!

  1. oooo good ones! I also despise being late and am often early for being early.

  2. Oh my gosh- YES! to skipping pages in books :)

  3. I was just saying to my husband yesterday about how all of these posts and articles are written about taking your time and not yelling at your kids and instead enjoying all of the moments of them being small and needing your help to get ready because someday they will be grown up and you'll miss those times, etc. Instead you've got me yelling at my son to get his shoes on, we are going to be late, and why is he so slow?!?! I do try to take it easy on him, but seriously, just get in the car!

  4. LOL to skipping pages in books. I've tried that but Mila always catches me!

  5. I love all of these and so can relate to all!!!

  6. They are so cute! I love crafts..but not with my kids!! haha

  7. I love Dragons Love Tacos lol. My husband shortens books too but Im too stubborn.

  8. Haha I didn't even think about the skipping pages one! I do that all the time!

  9. Oh my goodness, yes! Seriously yes to all of the above. I hardly let my kids eat candy me.... yeah I don't really have rules about that. Loved these!

  10. Loved reading your mommy confessions. Got a chuckle from D being the one to make your daughter get a late slip. Uh oh!!

  11. Must slip up now and then, that is being a normal mother, skipping pages is good sometimes when you are busy. We are all human beings with small flaws


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
