Confession#16 – I have been a teacher for 25 years and I have never felt as overwhelmed as I did last night when I sat in my child’s teeny tiny kindergarten chair and was handed an envelope for the school candy sale.
Confession #15 – Ever have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich made with two chocolate chip cookies? Ultimate comfort food….seriously.
Confession #14 – I am starting to sound like my parents… “When I was a kid, we didn’t have cell phones. What did we do when we had something to say? We spoke to that person face…to…face. And I walked to their house, up hill both ways, in the snow, to ring their doorbell. I didn’t sit outside and text them that I was here!”
Confession #13 – Just when I think I’ve got it together, I go and do something like show up a day late to a birthday party. My own fault, I put the wrong date in my phone. Luckily, my friend was very understanding and didn’t laugh at me (too much) when we rang her bell…
Confession #12 – I secretly celebrate inside my head every time I meet another mom who is just as frazzled as me, if not more. That happened recently at a party where the kids were running around from one activity to another and I caught another mom trying desperately to keep tabs on her kid, like I was. I gave myself a secret high-five for the brilliant idea of putting the brightest red t-shirt on my kid that he had. He was easy to spot from anywhere in the room while speeding around from one bouncing house to another.
Confession #11 – 10 days until summer vacation – whoo hoo!
Confession #10 – I thought the kids could handle dressing themselves, until I heard my son exclaim from the bathroom, “Wait a minute, I’m wearing two underwears!” Seriously, how do you not remember putting on the first pair? (Says the mom who wore her pants inside out to work one day….)
Confession #9 – Fidget spinners drive me bananas. My kid woke us up at 5 am because he couldn’t find his fidget spinner.
Confession #8 – I drink too much coffee. K-cups make it so easy to make a great cup of coffee. K-cups are the best invention. K-cups and Amazon… two things I wish I invented.
Confession #7 – I am SO happy my kids still nap sometimes. I know it is soon coming to an end, but I’ll push it for as long as I can.
Confession #6 – Sometimes I give the kids cold pizza for breakfast. Tomato sauce (veggie)? Check. Dairy (cheese)? Check. Whole grains (pizza crust)? Check. Three food groups covered.
Confession #5 – I never wanted to be one of those moms who drove a minivan, but after squeezing my butt between the car seats for a drive with the family, I am reevaluating my opinion.
Confession #4 – I was hoping for a snow day too….
Confession #3 – Bubbles! I had just as much fun (maybe more) at the Gazillion Bubble Show. And when the kids asked if we could go again tomorrow, I almost said yes.
Confession #2 – I cannot remember life before Amazon. How in the world did people function without free two-day shipping???
Confession #1 – I ate you Halloween candy. It was late and I needed chocolate.
