Mommy Confessions Week 6

Ok, so we all have them. I have decided its time to stop keeping them to myself in hopes that other mommies will realize that none of us are perfect. Here are my dirty little secrets for the week in hopes it will encourage me to be better. What are yours?

 ~ I let K try grapes for the first time on Friday. He enjoyed them so much, I let him eat a ton of them. Then I remembered we were going to be in the car pretty much all day long on Saturday. D'oh. Yeah, if you have ever fed a kid in diapers a bunch of grapes like that, you know about how that turned out. I'll spare the rest of you the details.

~ I put K in a pair of fleece longies that were his brother's the other night (because all of his pocket diapers were in the wash and he had to wear a fitted and I didn't want him to get the floor wet). They fit fine width wise but seeing as how K is a shorty short fatty cakes, they were about three inches too long. I considered changing them until I realized that with his feet covered in the soft fleece, he couldn't crawl on the linoleum floors in our kitchen. Textile baby proofing anyone?

~ My oldest, D, discovered my nail polish drawer this week. He got so excited. "Oh, mama! Pretty toes!". I explained to him that yes, mama paints her toes but little boys don't and he looked at me like I had smacked him. After finding him in my bathroom admiring the different shades of red and pink a million times I caved. I sat there this morning, in my bathroom floor, and painted my (almost) three year old son's toes a pale, sparkly pink. Wait till his father sees this.

~ I have also started using my (almost) three year old to spy on his baby brother. Its pretty handy actually, to be able to send him to go see what K is doing when he gets all quiet out of sight (its only occasional, don't get huffy). If he heads back my way, it means K is doing something normal. If D yells "OH NOOOO !" I know there is going to be a mess to clean up.

~ This one isn't exactly my fault but I still feel bad: We went to an indoor playground yesterday with my bestie and her JaMonkey to let the kids play and burn off some energy. While it sucks to be charged to let your kids play with regular toys, it beats the heat of the playground and its a big area so they got to run a little. Anyway, my poor little K came home looking like he had been in a bar fight. Rug burn on his forehead from flipping over a mat, scratches all down one cheek from an overly enthusiastic lady friend, hair sticking out from all angles from sweating and bubble solution. Plus it was way past nap time so his little eyes were all blue and puffy. My poor little bug didn't even want to eat lunch. Just nursed and crashed out.


  1. I like how you called these "your dirty little confessions", well I'm doing a post today, and I have some Big confessions, I'm changing things though!

    PS - I always seem to give my boys lots of grapes on days with long car rides too!

  5. Have you ever noticed how *raisins* come out?! Wow. (!)

    And don't feel bad for painting your boy's nails pink. He doesn't have the same cultural gender hangups that we do :)
