Confessions of A Busy Mom


~ I’ve gone several days without washing my hair, many times. Don’t get me wrong. That doesn’t mean I don’t shower. (Ew!) Sometimes, I just don’t have enough time to take a full-fledge shower. I’ve become the master of the messy bun look.

~ I sometimes nurse while going to the bathroom. Hey, if I’m feeding the munchkin and suddenly feel the urge, I can either choose option A – stop feeding the little man and induce a scream fest {or} option B – pee my pants. I’ll go with option C, thank you. When I’m nursing during the night, option C is the only option or else the rest of the house will be woken up. So, no one is disturbed, baby is happy, and I don’t pee my pants. Everybody wins! (On a side note, I have also become the master of the one-handed washing technique.)

~ I’ve found that Febreze can be a lifesaver. –  I was rushing to get the kids and I out the door one morning. I then realized the oldest had no clean underwear, and I had absolutely no time to do laundry. What did I do? I sifted through the dirty laundry, found the cleanest smelling pair of underwear, gave it a few sprits of Febreze, and we were good to go! (True story. Only happened once, so far. I DO wash my kids clothes, I promise! As for myself, I may or may not have done this more than once on a shirt or pair of pants.)

~ I’ve let my kids eat Cheez-Its for breakfast. I know, I just destroyed your picture of me as the “eggs and bacon every morning” mom. Sometimes, you just gotta have a Cheez-It morning.

~ I have a special place in my heart for canned ravioli. It’s great if you need a quick meal. The kids love it. I love it. Hubby loves it. We’re all happy!

~ I have trouble getting my mind to turn off at night, so I end up staying awake pretty late. Good thing I’m a night owl anyway!

~ Coffee is my best friend!

~ I start off each morning by deciding what messes can be left for another day.

~ I’ve left the house in my slippers and realized it after I was already halfway into town. We live about 30 minutes from everything, so I wasn’t about to turn around and head back. I rocked those slippers all through Walmart!

~ We sometimes live out of the laundry baskets. Laundry gets washed, folded, and then put back in the laundry baskets. I don’t know why putting the laundry away is such a daunting task. (I’ve gotten a lot better about that as of late, though.)

~ If I have a ton of stuff I need to do, I will sometimes turn on “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood” and let the boys have more than the recommended 1 hour-per-day of tv time. I know, slap me on the wrist. Hey, at least it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood!

Welp, all my secrets are out. Okay, maybe not all of them. But, hopefully I’m not alone in some of these. If I am, I’ll go sit myself in the corner, with a dunce cap on my head.
