Thursday Thirteen #6



Thirteen CONFESSIONS:


1. I don’t always brush the kids’ teeth before bed. I feel bad afterward, but not enough to get them back up and do it.
2. I sometimes park in the disabled persons space to drop off mail but I get upset with other people who park in diasabled spots at other times when they don’t have a decal.
3. If I’m not ready to wash the laundry but the basket is full, I sometimes remove my husband’s pants from the basket and hang them back up in his closet so he can wear them again. (Sorry Dave. I guess the secret is out.)
4. Ok so this is kinda gross. I actually didn’t realize I did this until the other day. My youngest is being potty trained. When I rinsed out the potty bowl I was using the kitchen dish towel to dry it off. Who knows what got dried off after that. Yuck.
5. On the weekend I sometimes say I’m paying bills online when I’m secretly reading blogs.
6. Occasionally I have paid a sitter to come over and watch my kids so that I can work… I just forget to mention that it’s on my blog and not my home business.
7. I sometimes throw away onesies because I am just too lazy to wash them out.
8. When I give the girls a bad hair cut I say I took them to the shop down the street.
9. Sometimes when the girls wake up in the morning their sheets might be a little wet. During their afternoon nap I realize I forgot to change the sheets and then leave them on since they have all ready dried.
10. On occasion I wonder if I am doing this whole parenting thing right. Then I write a post like this and …well… it speaks for itself.
11. I usually forget to say prayers at bedtime with one daughter but not the other. Makes me wonder if subconsciously I think one needs a little more help from God.
12. Sometimes we are given many bottles of wine either through my husband’s job or some other thing. Typically I hoard the ones I like and pour the ones I don’t for my neighbors.
13. If you have a confession let me hear it…

Wow, that's some list. Well, you don't need to read the book "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff."

You cracked me up. But I'll respect your honesty any day. But a word of advice on number 4 - you could give yourself and your family Hepatitis B by doing that. Just keep an old towel you do not use anymore for that project only and wash it daily w/bleach. That was the only scary one! But I'm quirky so I thought it was sorta funny too!

Wow, I love your honesty, and to be honest myself I would have to admit to a couple of those as well.
Thanks for sharing and Happy TT!

Well, the wife and I have 7 kids, mostly grown up now, and let me tell you, your list is about situation normal for most parents :-)

Oh, and thank you for the lovely comment on my blog.

Tink said...

I admire you for being this honest! I think m,ost parents do things like this, but don't have the courage to admit it. Your kids have a great mother!
Thanks for visiting my TT.

You are much braver than I./ I don't think I could reveal all of my dirty secrets...at least not 13 at once. I am guilty of number 1 as well...sometimes it is just not worth the battle. Happy T13.

Ack, I gagged at number 4.

Oh I like this list, I may have to try it one day.

Happy TT!

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments. Just a note on #4. I now use paper towels...

I do several of those. But I don't wipe out the potty seat at all. I just rinse it out. Sometimes I forget to dump it, and that is not fun.
My confession for today:
My little guy snuck out on the deck last night, apparently without clothing, and popped on the deck. It is still there.

Peter Plum said...

Wow, some of these are quite amusing. I've used the water from the dehumidifier for the cold wash before, but that's not really a bad thing.

Hmm... I'll have to give this more thought.

I personally like the one where you hang Dave's pants back up. I do that with my own pants, but it is much funnier when you are talking about your husbands pants!
