True Confessions! 2/20/2012

Did I say that?

Let’s spend this Magical Monday spilling some more of our dirty little secrets. I feel I have some more to unload and it’s always freeing, liberating, and funny. What a better way to start a Monday? ๐Ÿ˜‰

My Confessions:

* My 7 year old tells long and imaginative stories ~ I’m often in awe of how he can spin a tale. But most times I’m bored to tears listening to them! I’m so conflicted ย because I want to encourage his story-telling abilities but I don’t want to be the one to listen to them! (And in fact, I started writing this post as he was in the middle of his latest tale because I couldn’t just sit there anymore feigning interest!)

* Sometimes when my 4 year old is crying I feel nothing but impatience, especially if it’s when I’m getting the baby to sleep.

* NOTHING is more important to me most days than a sleeping baby and I’ve been known to rip some heads off when this gets interrupted.

* I don’t see the point in forcing fruits and vegetables down my 4 year old’s throat when most days I don’t want to eat them either.

* One day last week I had cheese curls for breakfast.

* I’m not as concerned with safety as other parents are ~ I don’t childproof anything in my house, I don’t use the straps on the high-chair, and I let my children jump off pretty much whatever they want.

* I let my children use electronics ~ video games, ipads, TV ~ as much as they want. Other parents may be judgmental about this, but I see how passionate and gifted they are with our latest technologies and I believe they should be allowed to pursue the things they’re really interested in.

* I’ve watched the movie “Secretariat” probably about 75 times since August. It just makes me feel good.

* I never, NEVER fold laundry. I either just stuff it into drawers or let my cleaning women do it when she comes every other week. Laundry is known to sit in our dryer for two weeks until she comes to fold it. And I don’t feel badly about this in any capacity. ๐Ÿ˜‰

* ย I shave my arms and have since I was about 11 years old! lol! (I LOVE body-hair true confessions!)

Whew! That was FUN! (I’ve been dying to unload that story-telling confession!) What would you like to unload and amuse us with this Monday?

  1. I pour a drink before attempting to assist our ADD child, first grader, with his homework. After working and the commute home, it is the last thing I want to do. Then we cook dinner, prepare a bath, do some chore/errands and pack lunches for the next day.

  2. 1. I’m also leaving for FL on Friday but my “business” part of the trip doesn’t start until Monday. I’m taking a girlfriend and we’re spending 3 days on the beach etc without kids or hubbies and I’m NOT feeling guilty about it.
    2. My 7 year old thinks she can sing really well. She sings at the top of her lungs around the house and it’s painful….I had to put a stop to it so I told her she cannot sing well. (she needs to know now before she’s old enough to think she can audition for American Idol) lol
    3. I let my both my kids play their DS’s way longer than they should so I can get stuff done.
    4. When my husband isn’t home for dinner I let the kids eat cereal and I just pick at stuff.

  3. 1. I’m leaving for FL on Sat…my house looks like an explosion hit it.
    2. I had a mega bathing suit meltdown on Saturday and again Sunday.
    3. I am SO OVER planning and cooking dinners.
    4. I bought Luna protein bars for healthy on-the-go lunches and instead had a 4 Reeses mini peanut butter hearts, some zero calorie Jones Soda, and several large handfulls of Goldfish.

    1. Omg, these are so great! ๐Ÿ™‚ I hear you about the planning and cooking dinners! It’s not just you ~ one of my friends and I were just talking about this very thing! I seriously would rather have an eggs for dinner than plan or prepare anything. And I gotta say, your lunch sounds right up my alley! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. I love true confessions! I actually have some of the same as you!

    1. I never use the straps in the high chair even though you’re suppose to.
    2. As I’m typing this my 9 month old is in the other room watching tv, judge away.
    3. I have a weird obsession with picking at my baby. I clean her ears almost daily because the ear wax bugs me.
    4. I too never fold my laundry. Even the clean stuff tends to be in a big pile on the floor – a floor we haven’t vacuumed in a while.
    5. Since having the baby we go long periods of time in between cleaning the bathrooms, and they are gross. We usually only clean them when we are at the breaking point or we’re having someone over.
    6. My baby seems like like my husband and her daycare provider more than me, and it makes me jealous sometimes.
    7. I’ve been dealing with a lot of emotions around my birth experience and it’s making me feel down in the dumps.
    8. I often times think I’ll never get back to my pre-pregnancy weight, I’m not even close, seriously.
    9. If I have a day off from work (like today) I still bring the baby to daycare so I can actually have a day off.
    10. My boob recently staring lactating, and I’m NOT breastfeeding. I haven’t breastfed in over 8 months so I was a bit surprised. I even tried to get the baby to try breastfeeding again but she was like, “don’t put that thing in my face”! Turns out it was a weird fluke, got some blood work done and everything is fine. How odd!
