Mom Confessional+Win a $25 Visa card!

Hey Hey Hey, it’s Tuesday! I’m linking up with Karli over at September Farm for 10 on Tuesday!

I’m giving away a $25 Visa gift card at the end of this post so stick around.

I’m just feeling the need to be brutally honest today. A confessional of sorts. I think I’ve seen one too many crispy coordinated Instagram posts lately so I need to even the playing field some. Don’t get me wrong, I love a pretty, staged pic just as much as the next gal but 99% of the time, that is not my life. So here goes.

1//My living room looks like the aftermath of a toy explosion the majority of the time and it doesn’t bother me. I clean it up every other day or so. Meh.

2//I don’t vacuum. My husband does.

3//My kids watch tv…alot. Like you would probably mom judge me if you knew how much.

4//I wash my hair maybe twice a week.

5//Sometimes I put my kids to bed early because I.just.can’t.

6//I did not do Easter baskets this year…no egg hunts either, no pictures with scary bunnies or anything. I’m surprisingly ok with it.

7//Some days I think we could be done having kids….other days I want 4 more.

8//My husband and I both feel guilty for making them leave the majority of their toys 2,700 miles away when we moved…so sometimes they get a new toy like every week. Hence the toy explosion problem.

9//I don’t bathe them every night. nope.

10// My taste in food is like that of a teenage boy. Pizza? yep. Sweets? yep. Soda? yep. I have to make myself eat veggies. Except salad…I like salad.

So now that I’ve aired my laundry, it’s your turn.

TO ENTER:

1) Watch this video below because it is spot on. I can so relate to this mom…we’ve all been there!

  • That’s such a sweet video! I can relate to ALL of your mommy confessions! Mine is…I tell the kids that fried fish is just chicken otherwise they wouldn’t eat it.

  • Amy Smith

    This is great! I agree with you on so many of these! I hide in the kitchen when I have a treat, so I don’t have to share! oops!

  • Kelley

    I love this! All of your confessions are true for me except we did do an egg hunt. But that’s because school made me buy eggs and stuff them with candy. I also only wash my hair once a week. And last night, after being up with the baby until 5am, I told my husband that we can’t keep her.

  • Caitlin

    I do confessions every Wednesday! Here’s my confession today though… We are on spring break and my little one knows it. I bribed her with a trip to the candy store so she would go to baby school for a few hours while I went to a workout class. Then I told her teachers I had a doctor’s appointment because I was too embarrassed to admit I was only dropping her off so I could exercise.

    A mom confession moment would be singing my little one to sleep every night and feeling completely happy with that because i know she loves a good lullaby every night. (:

  • Cynthia Gaarder

    Mom moment – not a good one – when you clip your one month old nail and get the skin and have to run to the ER for her to be put in special baby bandage that looked like a cast 🙁 had to hear for a week OMG wha happened, I felt horrible.

    It wasn’t my dream. But my hubby was having a nightmare that he was having a baby. He was talking in his sleep ,saying. “The baby won’t come out . I push but the baby won’t come out. ” Then he woke up. I had to smile. 🙂

  • In the morning I fix coffee before bottles – I just happen to think one is essential to EVERYONE’S happiness.

  • Mom moment. Wraps are super popular, so as a first time mom, I thought they would be super easy. I pack up my newborn in the car, get to the mall, strap her in and she spits up all over me and herself. – Those things aren’t as great as they look (especially for spit up babies)!!

  • Rosie

    I’m not a mom, but like babysitting. I volunteered for the church nursery, but didn’t realize it meant changing dozens of diapers in one hour. One mom got miffed when I gagged a little, as I have to confess! but I wasn’t used to that much poop and it overwhelmed me!

  • HS kraftmaking

    Mom confession here, I get my husband to do more midnight shifts of taking care of whining baby.

  • Sheridan Johnson

    Mom confession: I let my toddler cry herself to sleep last night when she was throwing one of her huge tantrums. Couldn’t take it anymore!

  • Elle

    Mom confession: I sometimes pretend I am still asleep when I’m not to get a few more minutes of me time. This will include keeping eyes closed and staying perfectly still while having child poke me and test to see if I am still sleeping before going back in his room waiting until I am up.

  • mami2jcn

    Confession: I slept in the same room with our daughter for 6 years! Now I sleep with our 6 month old and have no idea how long I’ll keep her with me.
