1. I have hidden certain of my children’s books at bedtime because they were too long and I didn’t want to read them. (I did this today. A library book…something about Tinkerbell’s journey to something or another… How did I let this one get into the bag?)
2. I have eaten the candy treats from birthday party favor bags when they forgot about them an hour after the party. (Mmmmm…..skittles! Mmmm…a pixie stick! They’ll never miss it!)
3. On the rare occasion that I’m driving in my car alone, I have driven for miles without even noticing that I’m listening to Disney Princess songs. (Upon remembering that I am sans kids, I am so sad that I missed 8 minutes when I could have been tuning in to something else for once!)
4. For dinner, I will serve my kids something along the lines of the following if I just can’t muster up the will to prepare something better: slices of cheddar cheese, wheat thins and a fruit/veggie pouch. If they are still hungry…animal crackers or ice cream. (What would June Cleaver say?!)
5. I claim to be a breezy Mom who will let her children leave the house in mismatched clothes and ratty, un-brushed hair in the name of self-expression and free-spirited childhood. But really, I desperately want to adorable-lize them before they leave the house, with a cute outfit and hair bow to match. And no, sweetheart, you cannot wear your scuffed black patent leather winter church shoes everywhere we go in the summertime. (Reverse confession: I do actually let her do this… sigh.)
6. Every week we are late for church, and I blame it on my kids. “I’m sorry we’re late…you know how it is with small children!” But actually we’re late because I’m lazying around too long and I don’t start getting myself and the girls ready until 30 minutes before we need to leave.
7. “You want to go to Dunkin’ Donuts again this morning? Ooooookay, I guess if YOU really want a donut, then WE will just have to go get a donut!” (yummy!)
8. I have told my girls that changing the batteries in toys is an important job that only Daddy can do when he gets home from work. (Just because I don’t want to do it.)
9. “Gee, I’m so sorry, the Frozen DVD seems to have stopped working! Bummer…” (Ok, I’ve never done this, but it is very tempting.)
10. My 6 year old asks me a trillion questions a day, so now about half of my responses have become “I don’t know” (even though I do).
I love the always-humorous NickMom.com, because so often they completely nail thoughts or experiences that I’ve had as a parent. I went there in search of other Mom confessions, and of course, they had them! I wish I could take credit for some of these, because I certainly have DONE some of these! NickMom.com Mommy Confessions
