Thursday Confessions



Happy Thursday friends! Today I'm linking up with Jess to share my Thursday confessions. I am so ready for this weekend! One of my best friends and her husband and their sweet daughter are coming to visit for the weekend. We are going to see Garth Brooks on Saturday! I can't wait for some fun adult time. Jack is also going to be so excited to have a 24/7 playmate for 2 days.

So here we go with my confessions...

* I skip pages in the books when I read to Jack at night. He makes us read the same 3 books over and over...{If you give a mouse, a dog, a moose, a cat, a pig any sort of food item} and sometimes I'm just ready for him to go to bed so I can go downstairs and do nothing. I figure I won't be able to get away with it much longer so might as well do it while I can!

* I cried twice this week during Graham's nap time. He has been an awful napper this week and it gives me zero break throughout the day. Both Tuesday and Wednesday by the afternoon nap I was so exhausted and mentally drained that as soon as he started to cry after I put him down I got so frustrated that I myself cried. I love this little nugget so much but Mama needs a break! I count on nap time to get things done, have silence in my house, get a quick workout in,  and not see any little people for at least an hour. This week none of that has happened and I just lost it. Of course by the time bedtime rolls around and he's peacefully asleep in his crib I end up feeling so guilty for getting aggravated that I almost want to go wake him up and snuggle him...almost.

* I thought one kid was hard....until I had two under two! Yesterday I had planned a play date for Jack and we were going to go to the park and have lunch with a friend of his. My sitter is in her senior year of college and has an internship and therefore hasn't been able to babysit. I was planning on taking Graham with me... I thought for days about how I would make it work with Jack running around and decided that I would just wear Graham and pray he was content. Thankfully, yesterday morning my sitter texted and asked if I needed her that morning any. I quickly jumped on the opportunity to spend some one on one time with Jack and happily left Graham at home with her! Y'all...it was so easy just looking after Jack. We played at the park and then went to Chick-Fil-A with our friends. I didn't have to worry about Graham needing to eat or being fussy. I was able to enjoy my meal sans holding a babe and got to give my full attention to Jack. It was so fun and a much needed outing with my biggest baby!

* I have an unnatural dislike for pumping gas. I usually avoid having to get gas at all costs. Patrick gets so aggravated at me because 99% of the time I will drive my car until its below E just so that he will fill it up next time he gets in the car. I especially hate pumping gas with both my kids in the car. I have this irrational fear that somethings going to happen and I'm not going to be able to get my boys out of their carseats in time....{insert eye roll emoji here}

* I hate talking on the phone. In high school if I had friends over and we were going to order pizza I would make them call to order. As a teacher I never liked to answer my classroom phone and I loathed getting notes to call a parent. There are few people that I will actually answer the phone for when they actually call. I think it has something to do with not knowing what the person is going to say...I hate saying no to people and I don't like to be caught off guard. I also tend to make awkward conversation with people I don't know...ie the pizza person. Often times I will either let them leave me a message so I know what they want or I'll just send them a text...it's a terrible habit and one that most anyone who knows me knows about. On the rare occasion that I actually answer the phone more often than not the other person is so surprised. Even my sweet MIL is shocked when I answer the phone. {I'm not proud of this trait I have}...The 3 people I always answer for...Patrick, my mom, and my 93 year old Mimi.

*My sister is getting married the beginning of April. I am so excited for it but I'm most excited to have 3 nights of uninterrupted sleep! We are leaving the boys in Wilson with my In-Laws. I love love love sleep and having a babe that still wakes up one {on a good night} if not multiple times a night is really wearing on me.

That's all I've got for you....do you have any funny confessions you want to share?

  1. I totally get most of these. I used to love talking on the phone, but now I hate it. I blame it on having texting. My girls nap time is my time to get things done too so when they nap for 20 minutes, it kills me. And we have a wedding in April too and we get to have an overnight away from the girls and that means sleeping in and not worrying about our girls!

    1. I can't wait to sleep in! Graham has not slept longer than 15 min in his crib for naps this week and I'm just praying next week is better.

  3. I hear ya on the one kid vs two kid thing. This parent gig is rough, eh?! I cried all last week...I'm not kidding, it was bad - Cabin Fever is alive and real. YIKES! Everyone says to enjoy this time with them being little, of course we do! We love our kiddos, but a break would really help us out here and there. If we were neighbors we could enjoy a playdate accompanied by a "mommy drink." LOL! We deserve it, darn it! Have a great day, Mama! I'll be following you!
