Thursday Confessions

Happy Thursday! One more day until we can celebrate the weekend! Lets get right to it...

I confess...

* That I absolutely hate changing a crib sheet. They are the biggest pain in the butt to have to take all the bumpers off, get the sheet off and then a new one back on. Then to tie all the ties to the bumper. Now multiply this times two since we've got two in cribs right now. Therefore I definitely go way longer than I should between changing crib sheets...surely I'm not the only one who feels this way. 

* That I may or may not have run the dishwasher twice before emptying it this week. I always run all the bottle through the dishwasher when we go to bed, I didn't unload the dishes last night and therefore just added the bottles right to the rack and whatever else I had and re-ran it! I figured a double wash couldn't hurt! 

* That Jack asked me to rock him after I put him to bed one night this week and I didn't hesitate to say ok! Sweet boy is always so easy to put down, we read books, say prayers, and then I throw him in the crib and he's out before I can even get downstairs. The moments are few and far between when he wants to rock and just lay on my shoulder so I definitely took him up on that offer! 

* That Graham has got to be working on some teeth and it's not fun for anyone involved. We never really knew Jack was getting teeth, he would fuss for a day and then the next there would be a tooth. Graham has been working on teeth for weeks now and it's getting worse. I'm ready for them to start popping through. 

* That my mom came through town on her way to my grandmothers and had lunch with us yesterday. She told me that I'm just one step away from being a neat and tidy person. I'm pretty sure that was a back handed way of saying that I'm a mess. I honestly do try! My house can be neat and tidy during nap time and by the time the boys go back down for bedtime it looks like a tornado came through. I'm chalking it up to the fact that I have 2 boys 2.5 and under and she lives with just my dad! 

* That my plan to wake up before my boys each morning and drink my coffee and catch up on my blog is not working anymore. They seem to be getting up earlier and earlier. Graham likes to think that 5:45 is a perfect time to start screaming his head off. 

* That I am wanting to attempt potty training this summer with Jack but I'm also really dreading it! I wish there was some potty training boot camp that I could send him to and he would come home fully potty trained...wishful thinking!

* That sometimes I think my body is that of an 80 year old living in a 30 year olds body. Two weeks ago my elbow was locked up and I couldn't straighten it past 90 degrees. This week my knee is acting up. These two things always seem to go hand in hand for some reason, and will do these weird flair ups and then won't happen again for a year. 

So there we have it, a few of my weekly confessions. I love reading everyone else's confession and would love to hear yours this week!

  1. I hate changing crib sheets too! Ugh, it's the worst. And so is teething. Man, why do these things have to be so frustrating. I've been up before the kids, but today Cam decided to get up at 6:45 and it is annoying the crap out of my because I know he's not ready to be awake since he's laying on the couch whining about every single thing. UGH!! Potty training is tough, I'm not gonna lie to you. I tried it when Cam turned 3 and it was awful. Just thinking about it makes me cringe. He had all of the signs, but after 11 days I gave up. In January when we moved into our new house he had some sort of flu bug and with it was diarrhea so he chose to potty train to make his bottom feel better. It was awesome (that he basically potty trained himself I mean) Just go with Jack's cues. You can do it!!

  2. I hate changing the crib sheets. We don't have the bumpers, but it is so much work and they rarely fit right. I have to turn the mattress a few times before I get it just right. And I have two cribs too. My girls have been sleeping in a bit, but I could go for them sleeping in longer. Especially on the weekends. My house is messy too. We clean it up every night after the girls go down, but it gets messy fast. Especially their rooms. My body is old too. I was on the elliptical for an hour yesterday (normally do 30 to 45 minutes and weights) and I feel like my legs are going to fall off. Plus my knee has been acting up. Not the one I had surgery on, thank goodness. Thanks for linking up.

  3. We don't even have a bumper and changing crib sheets is annoying. I can't imagine how much worse it must be with the bumpers! And being that Mila has been wetting the crib almost every morning (since we apparently don't get to her in time, ever) I'm so over it. Kid needs to get in a bed so she can get up herself and use the potty! I always try to be neat and tidy but it's HARD with kid(s)! My house used to always be spotless and I feel like it's in constant shambles ever since Mila was born. Good luck with potty training. Hopefully he'll surprise you and it will go really well! Fingers crossed for you!
