Confessions of a Mom

They say confession is good for the soul, so here goes...

1. I joined the gym a few weeks ago, and I love it. But admittedly, my main incentive at this point for getting up early and going is that for half an hour, I am off duty as a mommy. And I get to go to the bathroom all by myself.

2. Last week I was officially kicked out of church. During evening service, I let my wiggly one-year old play with my Smartphone on silent, not realizing that videos would still play. Loudly. So during a quiet moment of meditation, the entire church heard, "ELMO so happy to SEE you!" Maybe he was, but my husband/pastor wasn't. Worse, she later escaped from my claw-like grasp and started running down the aisle towards her dad with outstretched arms. Everyone said that was the most entertaining service they'd been to in a long time! Everyone, of course, except my husband :)

My Diva/Devil in training :)

3. So sad: I want to play Words with Friends on my iPhone, but I don't have any least not any who play.  And I found out that my most popular blog post (by far) is the one with an American flag clipart that people copy from my site.  Depressing realizations for this not-so-supermom... =)

4.  Our 4-year old is officially banned from art supplies. She glued all her artwork to the wall the other day while I was lying down, for a "s'prise." Boy, was it! Then, as we were getting ready for church, I found her on the couch, meticulously cutting out the itchy crinoline from the underside of her dress. All I can say is, smart girl for that! But she's not using scissors or glue again till she's 30.

Have a great week!!

Fun blog hops @


  1. I know you probably don't want to hear this...but I so look forward to hearing your funny kid tales. You have such a great way of writing them down!!! Love you!

  2. Gotta hand it to her for coming up with the idea to cut that itchy crinoline out of her dress but I completely understanding banning her from the art supplies! She sounds a lot like my youngest son who is 7 now. I never know what I will catch him trying to do next.

  3. Cute Blog! I’m a new follower Happy Monday!! I would love for you to stop and take a look at my blog as well! Thanks!

  4. Gosh, your life sounds like mine. Except for getting up in the am to go to the gym! My kids are banned from more stores and from more "supplies/rooms/foods" than I can count!

  5. What amazing nieces we have! And what an amazing mom God has given them! I would have LOVED to see Tom's face Sunday night . . . Love & hugs to all! Sara

    P.S. -- I'd love to play "Words with Friends" with you, but that would require a MUCH cooler phone than the one I have. Sorry!

  6. What a super cute post. Of course I love the photos of the girls. But I am totally with you on the working out. I think that is my only total me time!

  7. :) Your post made me smile! :) I'm so glad God keeps working in us & in our children, so we don't have to be "super-moms"!


We'd love to hear from you!
