Mommy Confessions....

Thing your may....or may not know about me as a mom...

  • I usually wear Nike shorts and a t-shirt on my days off work and I am often putting makeup on 10 minutes before Chris comes home for lunch
  • I often get VERY excited to lay with the little ones around 8:30 every night. I know very well that we will fall asleep together and I am done for the night....but I act like I am just laying with them.....
  • I sometimes sneak into the pantry to find the cookies I have hidden away so that I don't have to share a bite.
  • I secretly love a dental checkup. I get about an hour to sit back, relax (kinda), watch the tube, and I don't have to say a word
  • I often get overwhelmed by the task. I sometimes take a shower to sob
  • I have been known to put the kiddos in the car and drive down the loop and back just to have SPACE for 15 minutes
  • I always want Kaitlyn to order the kids mac n cheese at Outback so I can finish her plate
  • There are some days I have no idea what I am doing. Others look in and think it's all wonder and watercolors....but I've said it's often messes and mayhem
  • I often....okay always...regret that we let Little Miss sleep with us when she was little. There are times when she wanders in our bed and starts rubbing my leg and its cute....and there are other times I could just scream if someone touches me one more time.
  • I feel guilty sitting down to watch TV. I always think...I could be doing laundry, the dishwasher needs to be emptied, I could swiffer the floors for the 3rd time this week...which leads me to another confession
  • I am obsessed with clean floors. I adore my swiffer!.
  • I usually have dirty hair and have grown to love dry shampoo. I mean seriously, blow drying my hair is a waist of my life!
  • I have been known to announce I need to potty. Mommy language has taken over
  • I taught Little Miss the scripture about having a cheerful heart..and she has been known to call me out when I am grumpy. God has a sense of humor!
  • I often look at other mom's and compare. It's so hard to look to Him and Him alone for all you need.
  • Tonight Kaitlyn was on melt down and I told her to zip it. She said, "Zip what mom, I'm not wearing my jacket". What a precious heart...Lord, give me more patience!!
  • It's 1:30 am and I can not sleep. I often get up in the middle of the night to have peace and quiet.
Mommy Confessions...Whew...that felt good.
