Alright, let’s get real for a minute. Being a mommy blogger doesn’t mean I’m the perfect mom, far from it actually. Keeping track of four little boys is exhausting and a lot of the time, things fall through the cracks. So, here’s my top 15 confessions as an imperfect mommy blogger.
#15: My kids go to sleep in tomorrow’s outfit
Pajamas are overrated. Or I’m just too lazy.
#14: Candy and bubble gum is a food group in our home
I know for a fact that my kids will just hold out and not eat because they know they’ll be able to find something sweet to eat sooner or later.
#13: I use screen time as a babysitter
I’m not ashamed of this. Sometimes I need an hour to make phone calls, clean the house or just collapse on the couch. Check out this blog post about a 30-day no screen time experiment and you’ll see what I mean.
#12: The phrase, “Are you crying again mom?” is commonly heard
Sometimes I’m watching a sentimental TV commercial or sometimes I’m so completely overwhelmed that the tears just start coming. Either way, my kids are used to it by now.
#11: My kids wear shorts throughout the winter months
Sometimes it’s just not worth the fight.
#10: I let my baby sit in a poopy diaper if my husband will be home soon
What?! We take turns changing poopy diapers. If it’s his turn ….
#9: I binge on Netflix during nap time
Heck yeah! Fuller house!
#8: I would forego an epidural if it was a valid alternative to potty training 3 years later
You think I’m kidding? Potty training is awful. If you haven’t done it before, you should try it.
#7: In our house, Santa never gets credit for the presents
Seriously, he’s not real. I’m not going to shop and wrap presents for hours and not even get a “thank you.”
#6: Sometimes I forget whose toothbrush is belongs to who
The struggle is real. I’ve tried writing their names on them but it just rubs off. Hopefully, they know which one is their own.
#5: I only do laundry every two weeks because I hate it that much
Dishes aren’t so bad. You can get them done in ten minutes. But laundry seems to never end.
#4: My alter ego is the Hulk at bedtime
All I want at night is some peace and quiet. But kids always know how to manipulate their parents to staying up later. Well, I usually flip a lid and turn bright green.
#3: Our front lawn resembles a yard sale on most days
Why put all the wiggle carts and bikes away when they’re just going to get them all out again the next day?
#2 I sleep train my kids with ear plugs
They have to learn how to fall asleep on their own. Sometimes that takes a few nights of crying it out. I might as well get some sleep at the same time.
#1 The most I exercise during pregnancy is walking from the couch to the fridge
I know I’m not the only one on this one.
Hopefully after reading my mommy blogger confessions that you either can relate or feel a lot better about yourself as a mother. Either way, none of us is perfect, so let’s just laugh about it and enjoy the ride.
