Confession Part 1

In light of yesterday's Oprah, I've decided to confess some things that I've been holding in.

  1. Sometimes I put my kids in the bathtub, put a few drops of soap in the water and swish the water around. I don't actually wash them.
  2. I've pretended not to hear my son crying for thirty minutes or more, hoping that his crying will eventually wake up The Hubs.
  3. I'm pretending not to hear him crying right now. The Hubs is getting ready for work, O is crying. I told Jade to play with him. He's still standing here crying. I'm ignoring him. Finally Jade says to me, "Mom, O is crying. Don't you care?" WTH! Why do I always have to care? She didn't even ask The Hubs! Argh!

But most of my confessions have to do with my blog.....

  1. I really don't have the hang of this blogging thing.
  2. I don't really blog about the things I really want to talk about.....I'm barely scratching the surface here.
  3. My cousin died......we grew up together and she was just 1 year older than me. I was devastated....but I didn't blog about it. I'm making the 14 hour drive to the funeral. I'm leaving tomorrow and I have a million things to do to get ready. But I'm really stressed about not having my blog maintained.

Okay.....I feel a little better now. Actually, I feel closer to you. I'm glad we had this little chat.


  1. I think you're doing just fine with the blogging. And why just start writting about what you really want?

    Would you really be interested in an advice blog? If you ever want to chat about it- my email - KimAEby@gmail.com

  2. And good luck with the funeral - sorry I meant to add that the first time. I'm sorry for your loss.

  3. I've done #1 and #2 myself. Actually, at least once or twice a week, I'll wash Kiddo's hair while she's in the tub, but not bother with washing anything else. I figure she's sitting in the soapy water and she didn't really get *dirty* that day, so what's the harm? *innocent whistling*

    I'm very sorry for your loss. I hope the drive goes smoothly and safely there and back.

  4. OMGosh! Your #1 totally hit home with me. LOL I do that ALL.THE.TIME. Bubbles in the bath = washing his body. Duh!!

    Sorry to hear about your cousin. Have a safe drive!

  5. Wow, those are quite the confessions. I don't watch Oprah anymore, but I think I might have some confessing to do. Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog and welcoming me to SITS!

  6. Sorry for your loss. I am a REAL MOM just like you. I have sone so many things like #1 it is not even funny. They still turn out ok.

  7. Hoped over from SITS. I got a chuckle out of this post. But I'm so sorry about your loss. Blogging is cheap therapy so blog on, baby.

  8. Ok, I personally would probably do the shampoo thing. I think that would be quick and easy somedays.. just have them roll around in it.. haha.

    This is a great post! I think tyou have more of a hang on this bloggin thing than you think!

  9. I'm so sorry about your cousin. A loss like that must be really hard to bare. I hope you find lots of peace.
    I stopped by from SITS and I got a kick out of the rest of your list. :) Have a good day.

  10. I am so sorry for your loss!

    And I understand what you mean about the blogging thing. I don't always post what I really want to post about since it's public, and my family reads it. It is still nice though, and I love your confessions. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning!

  11. Visiting from SITS..we have totally done the bathtub "swish"!

  12. I di the same thing - let the baby cry for a minute to see if my husband will wake up. And...drumroll please...most of the time he does not.

  13. a blog is definitely not something to stress over! :) we're supposed to be her for you to have fun...or enlighten us...but no pressure ;)

    and i'm sorry for your loss...

  14. Hi I am totally guilty with #1. Do it couple of times a week. She doesnt get THAT dirty! Sorry about the funeral. I think you are a great blogger. I am hopeless but collecting followers!

  15. I think if we were honest, we'd all admit to having similar "sins" to confess. You are doing fine with the blogger thing - I struggle with it myself.

    So sorry for the loss of your cousin. Have a safe trip and don't worry about us - we'll still be here when you get back.

  16. I think that it takes a bit of time to find your "voice" with blogging. It doesn't start as soon as you establish your user name and password. However, based on this last post, you have found yours.

    The news about your cousin is terrible. I was tremendously saddened to read it.

    Be well.
