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!!!
