Confessions of a Mom Keeping it Real – Round 2
Hey y’all! Im back with another round of confessions of a mom keeping it real. If you missed my first round of confessions, you can check it out here.
So, all you mommas out there know there is no shortage of things we deal with in motherhood…some pretty funny, some not so much. Whether you have 1 kid or 6, motherhood is truly a juggling act…but I’m sure we can all agree its worth it.
Nonetheless, these chiren’ (as the old folks would say) will drive you crazzzyyyy lol. So, here are my confessions…round 2.
#1. In my 3 short years as a mother, I have learned to absolutely use bribery as often as needed. Ain’t nothing wrong with offering a little treat or reward here and there in return for good behavior. Let’s be honest, it works.
#2. I’m convinced that toys that talk and sing are the devil. I’m sure Im not the only one who is annoyed by them, right? With that being said, I can’t be held responsible if the batteries or the actual toy magically disappears. Sorry not sorry.
#3. Every once in awhile, I have to raise my voice to get my point across to my kids. Okay who am I kidding…I have 3 kids and 2 of them are toddlers …enough said.
#4. So the last time I checked, I wasn’t enrolled in school so I’m trying to understand why my toddlers are given assignments I clearly have to do? Mind you, we haven’t even begun to get Into the homework/project game too heavy yet but based on what my friends with older kids say, it just gets worst. So not fair :/
#5. I know there are some people out there who would cringe at the thought of leaving dishes in the sink overnight, I on the other hand have absolutely no problem getting sleep with dishes in the sink. Nope, not one. Listen, some days its just not enough time to get everything done. They’ll be right there in the morning. (I should probably mention, I was like this before kids too though lol)
#6. Aaaaah I remember the day I couldn’t wait for my kids to call me mommy. Now… on some days I think I’m going to pull my hair out strand by strand with tweezers if I hear “mommy, mommy, mommy” one more time.
#7. Many of you know the bedtime nightly ritual is exhausting. From announcing it’s time to clean up so we can get ready for bed…. to the whining and crying about not wanting to go…. to the bath time, story time, “I need some more water time”, etc. Honestly, some days I’m simply too tired for it all so on those days, I may end up skipping out on certain things…. like say brushing their teeth. Really what harm will missing a day or so here and there do? I mean the baby teeth will fall out one day anyway, right? 🙂
Maybe you can relate to some of my confessions. If so, let me know! And feel free to share some of your own if you dare! 🙂
YES! all of this!!! This was too funny and so true!. ESPECIALLY #7.. do NOT feel bad about skipping some of the nightly routine. No Judgement, but i even bathe them every other day because daily was not only tiring me out but drying out their skin (Eczema).
Love Courtneys game! “Shhhh”👍🏽. Kids: Mommy, mommy, mommy, them mom, then to mommy why can’t you hear me! Me: Oh didn’t know you were talking to me. Isn’t that how it works when I tell you it’s clean up time! Oh and homework humph…why do my toddlers get 4 pages of homework front and back!?! I’m all for education but they are 4! Youll get it when you get it Mr Teacher.
lol I know thats right!
Well I am blessed to have a 6 years old who has been trained and is pretty self sufficient when it comes to bathing, brushing his teeth, and the overal bedtime ritual! AGAIN, this is a result of my OCD and I must admit that unless he is with me-mom I am almost certain that some things get skipped at bedtime but trust and believe I check when I get home I know I am a little special LOL
BTW sometimes being called mommy wears me out and I want to change my name and after a few deep breaths, a scream or three I snap out of it! #mommychronicles
Yeah you are in business once they start being able to bathe and brush teeth by themselves lol.
Alllllllll so true!
Re HW- we are a week behind lol
Brushing teeth don’t get me started🤦🏾♀️
Re mommy- we play a game called “who can NOT” talk the longest! They are allowed to nod their heads yes OR no
I love…I mean they love the game🤣🤣
Oooh I like that game idea! May have to try it! LOL
