Thursday Confessions

Well here we are Thursday, I am happy to see you! This week is kicking my butt! Tuesday I had to go to Chapel Hill for a dermatologist appointment which took forever and then took me 2 hours to get home, thanks to rush hour traffic! Yesterday I took Graham to the doctor to have something looked at and didn't have a sitter for Jack so I had to schlep both boys! Thankfully all is fine and it was a pointless trip. Better safe than sorry!

I haven't posted Thursday confessions in forever! Every week I have intentions to do so and then it comes and goes and the post didn't get written! I've been keeping a running list on my phone though.

I confess...

// That lately I find myself tearing up sometimes when I hear Jack talking. He is growing up so much and will sit there and play with his action figure "guys" and have a full on conversation with them! It's amazing to me what a little person he is becoming!

// That I HATE to workout...I wish that I was one of those girls that loved it. Who had no problem getting up in the morning and getting a workout in {I'm looking at you sister} but I am far from that. I can easily find every excuse in the book as to why I didn't work out that day and can be persuaded to not go to the gym at the drop of a hat! I love my barre class but am only able to go twice a week right now.

// I keep seeing people talking about canceling their cable and I look at them like they have 5 heads. I don't understand why anyone would want to do that! I know there are so many shows on netflix and on demand but no..we just can't do it in our house. Our DVR is constantly full of shows we like to watch and the fact that I wouldn't have Disney Jr. at the ready is enough to never make me cancel it!

//  I am beyond sick of the follow/unfollow game on Instagram. I've said it before, I know. It's such a pointless thing. I follow the people I want to, not just because I want to get a follower! The whole thing is dumb and if you want to play that game with me I'll play it right back to you!

//  I have found myself on many occasions listening to whatever movie or kids music is playing in my car well after I don't have any children in my car. This especially happens after drop off to school. I will get 10 minutes down the road and realize that I have been listening to Mickey or Zootopia and there are no little eyes in my backseat!

// That potty training is a huge topic of conversation within my mom friend circle and we all have the same consensus. We don't want to do it. We want there to be a boot camp we can send our littles to who will come home and be trained! I just can't bring myself to do it. At this point Jack can go to Kindergarten in diapers!

// That we are still having sleep issues with Jack. He will do great sleeping in his bed for several nights and then the next several he is in our bed by 1 or 2 am. It is killing me. I am so sick of sharing a bed with him! He's such a bed hog and if he's not on top of me he's kicking me. I try to remind myself that its just a phase and one day I will want him to sleep with me.

//  Graham has been beyond fussy lately and it's driving me mad. Yesterday he whined/cried the entire time we were in the car. I know he's teething and it probably just has to do with that but man, it's exhausting!!

// I attempted to have Grahams one year pictures made the other day and it was a disaster. I found myself getting over frustrated with both boys and was certain we didn't get a single good one. I lost my cool and I was embarrassed about it. I'm thankful my babysitter was taking the pictures and she already knows that I am crazy! Luckily, she's the best and got some awesome shots! I can't wait to share them soon!

// That we are headed to Charlotte this weekend to see my family and while I am super excited {I haven't seen them since July!} I also know it's going to be exhausting. My parents house is not kid friendly and I will spend the whole time chasing after Graham making sure he doesn't put something in his mouth that he shouldn't! I'm already tired just thinking about it! I know it will be a fun weekend regardless.

Whew, are you tired of hearing me complain? What confessions do you have this week?

*Linking up with Danielle and Annie


  1. I am that way with both of mine. Why do they grow up so quickly? I agree about IG game. Ugh, it's just annoying and I'm not playing either. Yay for coming to Charlotte this weekend. If only I could see you. Enjoy and relax a bit. :) It's the same way at my mom's house too.

  2. I didn't even know about the insta game until I think it was Lindsay that mentioned it - just so silly! Hopefully the trip to your parents is a bit less exhausting than you are anticipating!

  3. I'm clueless about the IG thing too haha! I don't even know how to see if someone I follow follows me, too. I'm sure there's a way :) And I've been hating exercise lately, so you aren't alone!

  4. Yes let's send our kids to a potty bootcamp. I don't want to have to deal with it either. Avery wants to go every five minutes which is great, but sooooo time consuming and not fun for me. Ha. I am sick of the follow and unfollow game. I will have 5 new IG friends one day, but then they unfollow me a few days later. Why? I hate that. Have so much fun in Charlotte this weekend. I can't wait to hear about it!

  5. I found your blog from Home of Malones, and so glad I did! I'm the only girl with three boys too, and it seems like our boys are around the same ages, so I can relate to so many of your confessions :) I'll keep stopping on by!
