Real Mom Confessions

October 6, 2014

I almost hit a woman who cut the carpool line. I mean…not “her” – her car. And not “hit” as much as bumped.

I accidentally bleached the new kitchen towels from Williams Sonoma. Those things aren’t cheap! I tried to convince David that we only had one set of blue and green and the other set is supposed to be that washed out ugly mustard color but he didn’t believe me.

I went to the store to return the jacket but I may have exchanged it for another color. I plead the 5th.

I have this new obsession with humus. I’ve always liked it, but I’m kind of addicted. And I’m fairly certain it isn’t considered a healthy lunch alternative if you eat the whole package at once.

I taught Brynna to play cards just so I’d have someone to play with.

I feel guilty when people comment on seeing David walk Brynna to school because I know not everyone has a dad/husband who does things like that. I sometimes make light of it so others don’t feel bad. Of all the silly/crazy things I do, shame on me most for that…for lessening the work and sacrifice he gives that makes possible the relationship she is blessed to have.


Do you have a confession? Or something you’ve been known to downplay so others don’t feel bad around you?
