A friend from A&M has the cutest blog, Stories of a Stay at Home Mom, and she has a weekly posting for her "Wednesday Confessional".  It makes me smile every time I read it and and it's just so...refreshing!  I love Mom friends who tell it like it is!

So since this post is a tribute to hers, here are some of mine (a day late)!!!

  • I steal food from my kid. Blue Box Mac n' Cheese? Fruit Bunnies? Goldfish? Yes, please!
  • I have Kyle convinced that I don't know how to iron. I'm sorry, but it's $0.99 to launder and press a shirt at the dry cleaner; I can find a better use for my time.
  • I truly believe that not eating all of your french fries is the equivalent of not eating any.
  • I cried my eyes out the night before I had Cooper...over the dog! I was heartbroken about not being able to take her every morning for our walk. Things are different now but she seems to enjoy the extra food that Cooper "shares" with her and the extra "ball thrower" we now have at the house!
  • Cooper LOVES the Swiffer. I actually put a cleaning cloth on for him and praise him when he gets a lot of dog hair. I mean, might as well!

Here is Courtney's most recent post:

Wednesday Confessional

Chapter 5

Last week Charley woke up EARLY and was super fussy. Jay was also really whiny that morning. I knew it was going to be a rough morning, so what did I do? Headed to the gym and dropped the kids at the nursery! I didn't even feel like working out that day, but the thought of having a break from my fussing kids sounded AMAZING! I handed the kids over, left a bottle for Charley, and took off. I spent ten minutes in the locker room just sitting there in silence. God bless those ladies!

We spent a week in Wisconsin and Chicago- without Anthony. We were with my family and they were super helpful of course. But being a single parent is NO JOKE! I am beyond exhausted!

Speaking of, I noticed my milk supply went up 100 jillion percent while we were there. I am 99% sure it was from the ridiculous high fat foods I consumed all week (brats, cheese, cheese, pizza, and cheese). Add that to no exercise and just call me a Holstein!

I had a random man at a Truck Stop tell me Jay was too old for a pacifier. So many insults went flying through my mind, but I just bit my tongue and muttered something like, "Thanks for the advice" under my breath. Really Mr. Trucker???

I ate so few fruits and vegetables this past week that I actually counted the bell peppers and onions in my deep dish pizza part of my veggies for the day. Sad? Very.

I stay up way too late every night. The feeling of freedom after the kids are down far outweighs the lack of sleep. But then I complain I'm tired. Another vicious cycle.

While we were traveling, I didn't want to buy (and then pack) a new package of diapers for Jay. So when we got down to the final TWO diapers to get us through the day, we had a choice- buy a new pack, or hope for the best. Let's just say, my bag was light- we traveled all day (car ride, airplane ride, and another car ride) with two diapers. THANKYOUJESUS for letting that one work out. What a mess that would have been!
