I feel the need to get some things off my chest. So I decided that today would be as good of a time as any.
I despise Little Einsteins, Dora, and most shows like them. Like a lot. Like so much that I change the channel or turn it off at the first hint that one of those shows is coming on. I am so thankful that the only show similar to this that the girls watch is Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (which is still pretty annoying). However, when I am tired of this show I tell her that “Mouse” is not on right now because he is on break. Luckily, she does not understand the whole concept of “On Demand” or I would probably be in trouble.
I find certain toys annoying. I’m sure you do too (I know I can’t be the only one). I know James does. I found some of them so annoying that I made sure they made it into the Goodwill bag last week. The toys I find annoying are usually the noisy toys. I do not mean all toys that make noise, just certain ones. Dolls that sing songs in horribly squeaky, nasally voices. Toys with buttons that when you push them they say something. My problem with these is that babies and toddlers constantly push the buttons over and over and over and over. And they never let the toy finish saying whatever it was saying! It’s so annoying to hear the same few keys, bars, or words, over and over. I probably would not find these toys so annoying if they would just finish saying whatever they were trying to say. Maybe the toy manufacturers could invent toys for babies and toddlers that will finish saying whatever they were saying no matter how many times the button was pushed.
I relish nap time! And by relish I mean love it more than words can describe. I look forward to nap time so much that I sometimes get disappointed on the days when one or both of the girls refuse to take naps. Nap time is when I get “Mommy time” and not just any kind of mommy time but mommy alone time. The hubby is working, the girls are napping, and mommy gets to do whatever she wants when she wants. Sometimes it’s taking a nap to recharge, usually it is prepping dinner and/or working on personal quiet projects.
I get super excited when my mom says she wants to keep the girls overnight. But usually after I have cleaned the house or done whatever it is I wanted to do I miss them terribly especially at night. I try not to pester my mom with calls or texts because I don’t want to hear her saying, “I raised three kids. I think I can handle these two.” or something very similar. I have often found myself snuggling with James and telling him how much I miss my babies, or even hanging out in their room just so I can be surrounded by them.
Wow! I feel better! It’s amazing how good you feel after getting some things off your chest. Alright, there you have it! These are my current four Mommy Confessions. I know I’m not the only one with confessions to make. So come on and share your Mommy Confessions in the comment section below. Remember you are around friends here. We all are in this parenthood journey together!
Have a blessed day!
