I confess that I'm not Super Mom, but I wish I was...

It's that time of the week, time to confess all those things that make life fun, annoying, and everything in between.  So after enjoying my lovely confessions, head on over to Mamrazzi  to read everyone's confessions or to join in and confess yourself.


I confess,
I wish I had a clone of me.

Someone who could just do the housework or my part time job.

Just one thing, because then I could manage the other five things that need to get that MOMENT.

I confess,

I'm trying my best to let messes lie, so that I can spend play time with my girls.

They are only little once, and I want to sing, play, laugh, and get messy with them.

So someone else is going to have to do the laundry, or I need to just forgo sleep.

I confess,

That I looked at our summer schedule and we are SUPER BUSY.  I'm seriously going to need a major break.

M- craft day at home- this usually involves paint- so the second half of my day I clean up paint. ;)

T- Kindermusik for BOTH girls.  One is at 9:30 the other 5:30, in between I work and the girls hang out with Grammy.  It makes for a LONG day.

W-Shopping day- usually just grocery shopping, but errand day too.

R- Summer reading program at the library.

F- FUN day- which means museum, theme park, parks, or splash pad! 

I confess,

Elizabeth is starting to have her dolls talk to each other now, and I stand outside her room and listen.

It's adorable, and I hear myself "talking" quite a bit.

Confused?  I'll give you an example-

"Now Belle, it's time to go night-night."

"Not yet, my darling.  I need to go to work first."

Can you guess which phrases I use??

I confess,

That I think Evie is in a growth spurt and is more fussy than usual because of it.

So when she falls asleep in the afternoon, I LET her sleep as long as she wants.

My mom always says, "you never wake a sleeping baby".

Guess what?  She's. Right.

I confess,

That this past Tuesday, I danced the polka with a 3 month old.

Yes, I said the polka.

And yes, I did also say 3 month old.

Just chalk it up to another weird thing that I never thought I would do as a mom...but yet I have done it.

My little Polka Dancer.

I confess,

That one of the other moms at Kindermusik is just a little too perky and put together for my taste.

I mean, I'm all for a positive attitude, but I'm lucky I made it there at all, let alone dressed, and if I am really lucky with cute top rather than one of my raggedy old t shirts and a pair of jeans.

She on the other hand has full makeup, a cute outfit that includes high heels with her matching shorts, and is chatting up anyone who can hear about her baby.

It's a little much and yes, I feel bad to say that too.

I confess,

I proudly invented a mommy badge yesterday by mistake.

You see we did some crafts yesterday because Summer reading doesn't start until next week.  I had some stickers on my shirt.

I forgot it was on my shirt and went through the drive through...but I figure it was just proof I was a mommy.

Hence the Mommy badge.

I confess,

That I was the ONLY mom that didn't have socks on their baby at Kindermusik.

I felt like an enormous failure.

Then again, I was the only second time mom there and it was 97 degrees outside.

That kind of heat makes socks a little redundant.

At least that's what this mom thinks...and if you don't believe me just check out the mommy badge. ;)

I confess I miss you guys terribly and can't wait to visit. have I told you about Brand's granny visiting?? She said the one thing she regrets is being a stick in the mud and always being worried about cleaning the house and doing laundry and keeping the yard clean. She said she's afraid she missed out on a lot of fun... I can't wait to be that smart!
