All moms do it, right? Things we’re not proud of. Things like skipping baths. Or “cooking” PB&J for four meals in a row, breakfast included. Or turning cartoons on so we can hide in our bedroom for some quiet time. Or, my personal favorite, putting a kid timeout for so long that you forget why you put them there. (If you haven’t done this yet, you will – you’re kids are probably too young.)
Being a mommy is hard. One of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Of course, it’s totally worth it. But there are many days when I step back and take a look at my parenting and wonder what the heck I’m doing.
That’s what this new feature is going to be. A regular confessional of what I’ve done as a mom that can’t be reversed. Chime in if you’ve done something similar. Especially if you’ve done something worse. That will make me feel better
Maybe that’s why I’m doing this. To get a little moral support. Or, maybe I’m doing this so that after I say it out loud, I’ll be more aware of my shady parenting.
So, here we go:
Lilah just wet her bed for the second time today, and I am seriously considering not changing the sheets this time. This would be the third day in a row that I’ve washed all her bedding! I need a break. The washer needs a break!
Yes, I know that’s gross. And I probably won’t actually do it. But, I WILL put her butt in a diaper tonight!!!
