some confessions…

29 Apr

my out of control laundry...

Alright it’s Friday and I’ve been missing for  couple of days. I had my best friend’s son in the hospital with a respiratory illness and just a crazy day with play dates and a girls’ night. So, I decided to get real with you guys, show you a bit of myself sitting behind this computer screen, and encourage you to share the same. I know we all have things that catch us up each day that we feel or think. Either things we like or dislike that kind of go against what those around us think or feel. Some of us feel trapped by these feelings because we feel like we shouldn’t feel that way: can-you-please-heap-on-a-scoop-of-mommy-guilt-please? Others of us feel this way because it let’s us down from the perfect image we’re trying to obtain or the image we think a Christian mom, wife, friend, woman, should be. Anyways, I just wanted to offer some of my confessions for the following reasons: (1) to encourage you that although it seems like I can do it all or have it all together, when we’re in the blog world you only see a snippet of my real life – let’s be real here. (2) to encourage you to share some of your confessions (in a pure, fun way)

#1 — i don’t shower everyday: we’re lucky for every other day here

#2 — i give my children back their food when they drop it on the floor (unless it’s obv dirty) — c’mon we’d be out a lot of money or food if I didn’t!

#3 — sometimes I put myself in time out when my children push that one button one time too many

#4 — i’m one of those “crazy, radical, don’t care about their kids mom’s” who don’t vaccinate (flame away…)

#5 — i hate wearing socks, my feet feel trapped. Blech.

#6 — i hide in the garage or on the back patio to eat treats (candy, cookies, brownies, etc.) when I don’t want the littles to have any

#7 — my laundry is never kept up with (ugh…. I end up rewashing a load a week after it gets the smells-like-wet-dog-smell from being left in the washer)

#8 — i like evenings when my husband is out (something about mom getting it all done, kids get in bed earlier, quiet time, and no propositions ;))

#9 — mommy things make me crazy – clubs, organized activities, etc. I like being with friends. I HATE small talk.

#10 — sometimes I make my night sound rougher than it was so that my hubby lets me sleep in later. 

#11 — i find loving people I don’t know to be very hard. 

#12 — my weight is the same as pre-pregnancy, but everything has moved elsewhere. However, I don’t make much effort to do anything about it even though it bothers me!

#13 — I REALLY like a glass (or two) of wine

Alright. There’s round 1. Maybe one day you’ll see round 2. Anyways…what do you like? Dislike? Can’t stand? Spill it. 

Happy Friday and have a GREAT weekend. It’s my man’s birthday and I’m super excited about my plans for it.

    I have two: I only iron the front of my kids’ clothes. AND I hang all of my kids’ clothes so I don’t have to fold them.

    LOVED this post! I can totally relate with #5. I cannot stand to wear socks and would wear flip flops all year if my toes didn’t freeze. And #7, yup same here!

    Oh my, we have so much more in common than our names…LOL! I also can pretty much match you point by point. Brought back memories of our life ‘back in the day’ 18 years ago. WOW, that went by quick. Fortunately, the immunization thing was NOT so ‘attacking to baby’s little systems’ then…Not so many, so close together…TIME OUT….definitely, and I would love their faces when I would do that! “What did you do Mama?” was always their response. And #13!!! I am there even now!
