Confessional Thursday

Today, I confess...

-This (well, as soon as it's cold enough to warrant a sweater here).


- Earlier this week we made a quick visit to a McDonald's indoor playplace for Wells to run off some steam. We were the only ones in the entire place and had bought a big drink to share among all of us. As we were about to leave, I looked over and Wells was drinking out of a cup that WASN'T OURS. Parenting fail. #facepalm

- I have been on the struggle bus big-time in the mornings lately. Grayer is not the world's greatest sleeper and is still getting up a number of times at night. I have never been a morning person, but 8 months without a single night of uninterrupted sleep is seriously starting to add up. It takes everything for me to get up in the mornings right now!

- I dread brushing Wells' teeth at night. So does Eric. We always try to pass it off to each other.

- Wells has been in school (2 year old pre-k) for only like a month, and I am already worried that our house is going to look like an episode of Hoarders soon with all of the crafts and papers he brings home every day. I love love love seeing all of the stuff he does and I cannot get enough of those cute little crafts. But, the coloring pages are not necessary to keep, right? ...RIGHT? Someone make me feel better :) I mean, honestly, Wells' coloring pages right now only consist of about two crayon marks anyway...his art style is "minimalist," obviously. Ideally, in the playroom at the new house, I will have some kind of place like this one to display the special artwork that will be brought home throughout the years.


- I have to consciously remind myself to wash behind my kids' ears. I don't know why (okay, yes, I do. Bath time is chaos, especially with both boys in the tub at the same time now), but I always forget that one area!

What are your confessions?

  1. I have a hard time keeping all the crafts my kids do too. We get so many. I have a ton at work, but a ton at home too. I need a good night's sleep too. It is hard when you have kids that wake up at least once a night. Struggle bus for sure.

    1. That's a good idea - maybe I would take some to work :)

  2. I can relate to sooo many of these! Especially the brushing teeth and keeping art work!! This year I got a big envelope and am putting all the "keepsake" projects in that. That is the ones I get to keep...my husband is like a hoarder when it comes to our kids artwork. His office is ridiculous. It looks like a shrine to our kids! Ha!!

    1. I definitely need some kind of organizational system like that. And how sweet that your hubby loves their art so much!

  3. I laughed out loud when you said he was drinking out of a cup that wasn't yours! Too funny! :) I hope you are able to get some sleep soon!

    1. After the initial shock and disgust, it was pretty laughable! :)
