It's not quite a quiver full, but it's a start!

Mommy Confessions

At the end of one of "those" days this is the list of things I wish I could tell my kids...

No, a granola bar probably isn't the "ideal" breakfast, but it will keep you full long enough for me to wake up, peel myself out of bed, and drink my coffee.

It doesn't really take me that long to use the restroom, I just needed a break.

Facebook is not more important than you, but I need a little "adult" conversation before I can answer that question for the 80millionth time.

I know you aren't tired and don't need a nap, but I do so time for bed.

I really wish that you knew how to read by yourself, so I don't have to read the same book to you over and over and over and over...

Yes, I was excited when you pooped on the potty, but only the first 15 times.

You are doing a great job, but can I just do it for you so we can get this over with.

But even at the end of "those" days, the one thing I want my kids to know the most is, "I love you and even if tomorrow is the same as today, I can't wait to wake up and do it all over again."

  1. Those things that cross our mind to say that hopefully never make it out!

    The "I need a nap" really resonated with me and made me laugh. Whew-raising kids can really tucker you out!
