No one is perfect and sometimes we need to hear the things other people do in order to feel better about ourselves.No, it’s not that we NEED to feel better about ourselves. It’s just that it’s nice to know we’re not alone! It’s nice to know that we’re normal!
I’ve asked other moms what their mom confession (momfession) would be. As you read them, I hope that maybe not only do they make you feel better about the things you do (or don’t do!) as a mom, but maybe you’ll read a few and realize that sometimes it’s OK to do these things by choice! They’re harmless and it makes life fun and interesting!
Here’s their momfessions…
Sometimes I skip bath time…for a couple of days!
Cookies or cake for breakfast if I’m especially lazy or they’re especially good…or whiny.
Bribing! You name it, I’ve bribed for it. Trying new food, going to bed, leaving the house, going potty, getting dressed, being quiet, the list goes on and on!
Letting my kids watch TV, just so I can shower…or read an entire book!
I throw away toys that they like but that I find really annoying!
I eat the good snacks after they go to bed. It’s like they taste even better.
I let my kids eat snacks in bed one night, just so they would stay there while I watched The Bachelor.
I let my kids climb in bed with me so I can sleep longer in the morning.
I don’t stop my children from using the doggy door to go in and out. It’s just easier!
I tell my kids that a monster will eat their toys if they’re left out at night. -Ya, that’s one of mine…Read about the Toy Eaters HERE if you missed that post. I’m telling you, it works!
If I’m too tired to clean up, I just clear a path in their room and leave it a mess.
I taught my toddler to rub my shoulders and make it sound like it’s a lot of fun for her. It’s really just because I know that’ll benefit me in the long run!
