Mid-Week Momfessions


I have been thinking about but dreading want to get into shape. And so inevitably I know I need to eat right and exercise. (That’s really the only solution to anyone wanting to be healthy, if you want my opinion.)

Well, I’ve done a few exercise videos since Doodlebug was born, but haven’t committed fully to becoming healthier. Yesterday morning, Ladybug crawled into bed with me and started talking to my belly like there was a baby in there. I promptly hopped out of bed and into some work-out clothes and got to work.

So, yes I have a mommy tummy. And having my three year old talk to my belly was embarrassing enough to me that it was all the motivation I needed to get on the wagon and get rid of the baby weight x 3.

Your turn, what do you want to momfess?

I hate pills. Always have. Probably always will. So… I take a gummy multi-vitamin. You know, the chewy ones like preschoolers use? They make them for weird adults like me. And I take them happily.

Wanna momfess something? Go ahead and use the comments, or post your momfession on your own blog and leave the link in the comments, I’d love to hear your confessions!

MomfessionsI’ve blogged about cloth diapers before.

They are great. They really are. But…

When you have two in diapers, and you’re nursing one and constantly getting snacks for the other two, and then you add in making baby food and doing laundry and cooking dinner and picking up toys all day…

OK, I confess, my cloth diapering is sorta sporadic these days. It’s not the diapers, it’s me.

And I take comfort in the fact that even if I only use one cloth diaper on one kid every day, I save 365 diapers from the landfill in a year. And every little bit counts, right?

I don’t always make my children brush their teeth.

I know, I know.  Gross, right?  But let me tell you, when Hubby’s gone for the evening and I’ve been spit up on, and changed an explosive diaper (or ten), watched Cars or Toy Story again, and been asked for a snack seventy eleven times I just want the Bugs in bed.

So when the clock strikes that magic number, I whisk them down the hallway and though they ask, “Don’t we need to brush our teeth before bed?”  I shrug and say, “Not tonight.

I know, I know.  But hey, they’ll lose these baby teeth someday anyway.

Mid-Week Momfessions

I don’t know about you, but I have a lot to confess momfess about the way motherhood happens around here sometimes.  I blog about it (sometimes), but I don’t want to be the only one ‘fessin’ up.  So here’s your chance.  If you have some momfessions you need to unload, blog all about it— give us the nitty gritty— link up your post, come read the other linked “momfessions”, and feel better that you’re not alone!  (Feel free to grab the Momfessions button for your post!)

So, my momfession is television.  It’s my secret weapon against the Bugs who now outnumber me three-to-one.  I don’t like using the TV this way.  I hate popping in a movie to grab a quick shower, or showing a DVD to buy myself a few minutes to read the Bible, but it’s just kinda happened.  My TV is on.  A lot.  Quite a bit more than I ever imagined it would be.  I feel oodles of guilt over it…

and then I peek in and see the Bugs sitting so quietly, mesmerized by The Wonder Pets, and I think, “Wow, I probably have twenty five minutes to wash my hair.  With soap.  And rinse it.

So what’s your momfession?
