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.
