Motherhood is amazing. It is all I have ever wanted and then more. It’s also not always fun and roses and rainbows. There are parts of the ‘job’ that I don’t always enjoy and there are some things we do a bit outside the box. Here is a short list of my motherhood confessions (part one because there will be plenty more in the future):
I hate doing crafts with my kids :
Mother’s on tv do them and they turn out perfect. All that happens when I do crafts with my kids is glue and glitter everywhere with an end product that looks nothing like we hoped.
I hide the cookies from them :
I share my breakfast with my kids. They eat my lunch and dinner off my plate or I eat the food cold when they are already done. I hide the cookies from them and eat them happily all by myself.
Playgrounds/playgroups drive me crazy :
They cause me anxiety. They are loud and dangerous and I find I spend more time gasping at their almost-falls. It also seems to take more time to get all three dressed and ready to go then we spend outside.
My kids don’t get dressed every day :
They hate wearing pants. I don’t blame them because I hate it too. If you were to randomly drop in on us at home you will find Big P is a shirt, underwear and socks; Princess R will be in a shirt, underwear and a tu-tu; Babe E will either be naked, in only a shirt or a princess dress.
I need space too :
My kids are with me all the time. The older two are in school part time now so it’s a bit easier but Babe E is never away from me. About 4 nights out of the week I will have one or all three in bed with us at some point in the night. I read stories to them on my lap. They fight over cuddles and I do my best to give them each time during the day for their own special cuddles. By Friday I am so done though. Not a naturally ‘cuddly’ person – I get touched out pretty quickly and tell them to give me my space.
Now, your turn to confess!
