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! 🙂
