Confessions of a SAHM

Sometimes I read mommy blogs and I think few things:
one- "she sure is a super hero of a mom..." and two- "does she ever sleep?" and three- "how does she do all that?" and four- "she makes the rest of us look lazy..." and "holy cow she is like amazing!"

Well if you think that about me and this little blog here .......I have  a few confessions:
1. I have a craft room that is now just one big mess and I dread walking into that room.
2. I probably have enough projects to last for 3 years... and I wouldn't have to buy anything...and I'm not exaggerating.
3. Sometimes I forget to eat dinner....like tonight I forgot, but I remembered to eat dessert...oops.
4. I feel guilty about the funds I spend at JoAnn's and other various craft places.
5. I really hate clutter, but I seem to have a lot of it.
6. My sink and my counter all covered in dirty dishes right now. But I'm too tired to do them. Instead I am doing this.
7. I really don't like the colors in my house, but I am too frugal and tired to change them. I keep things the same for a long long time.
8. I watch way too much T.V. and I watch a lot of talk shows. And I get a lot of magazines but I never take time to read them. What a waste.
9. I drink too much diet D.P. and diet Coke. My teeth will probably turn brown and fall out.
10. I went 3 days last week with no shower and I never really got dressed. eewww grose. disgusting.
11. I feel guilty all the time about not being a better mother and wife. (don't we all)
12. I always always have a huge pile of laundry to fold, and another huge pile to wash.
13. My best ideas come to me late at night. Which is why I don't sleep much..but I am always, always tired.
14. I don't have much of a social life- except for my husband, and kids, and this one friend I talk to about 30 times a month on the phone.
15. I have way too many interests- so I am no expert in anything- just like to do lots of things but none of them really well....
16. I really love to exercise and work-out but I don't make enough time for it lately.
17. I love jewerly, and make-up and cute shoes, but I never hardly wear any of that stuff anymore.
18. I feel overwhelmed... a lot. Probably because I am so disorganized, but I love to organize.
19. I have really mixed feelings about the whole internet world, blogging, Facebook, all the stuff.
20. I get excited when I see a really cute idea or think of a really cute idea, and I can't sleep or eat until I have the thing made or have all the supplies to make the thing, (but no time) and it is really a bad habit.
 21.  I really want to see New Moon and I probably won't get to until it is on DVD.
22. And in case I forgot... I really really love my kids and husband but I don't think I show them enough.
See... I 'm just as normal as you are...or maybe now you think I am not so normal. Oh well.
So inquiring minds want to know...what are your mommy confessions? ☻

Just "amen" to all that! I don't think my bathrooms have been cleaned for over a month. Yuck! I actually had someone watch my kids yesterday so I could get something done, but spent a few minutes on the internet and only had time for my floors. They took 45 minutes to vacuum and mop!

I have many 'mommy confessions', too many to even list...I worry for my children way too much, I worry that my friends don't think I need them because I have a large family when in reality I do it's just sometimes life is a complete whirlwind and I'm living moment to moment. I think I should be sharing more bible stories at night with my little ones when in reality night comes and we are all too exhausted to do anything but fall into bed. My kids brush their teeth every day 2x but no, I don't make them floss, and I should!

Thanks for posting this, but you ARE one amazing mama! Our kids are about the same age and I don't do anything near as awesome as you! Mainly I get the kids fed and sometimes get my house cleaned (but not very often). Thanks for your post, they always give my ideas that I can add to my 3 year list ;)

Thank you so much for this post! My confessions list would look a lot like yours - minus the loving to work out, and adding something about the HORRIFYING amount of chocolate chips I eat. Horrifying. Anyway, it's nice to know I'm not alone, thank you!

Spoken like a true mom! I just came across your blog - cute. Thanks for the post.

i could have written at least half of these!! and all those other 'super' moms... well, i dont know if they are with their kids enough, which is maybe why they get to do all the other stuff they do??

Sandra Nixon said...

Ha ha, like every time i read your blog I think, "Ugh, i am so not cute, Sharla is cute and creative!"

Still do!

My mommy confessions mirror almost all of yours, especially the laundry to fold and laundry to do, dirty dishes, three days without a shower...I've gone longer, but don't tell :) I too hate clutter, and yet have it ALL OVER my house...and the list goes on and on. Thanks for sharing with us!!!! It's nice to know we are not alone!
