I have decided that I will post another one of those brutally honest posts. Not that my other posts are lies. This is the kind of post that I ‘fess up to some other stuff.


It’s therapeutic.

I hear from people all the time that they don’t know how I do it. And by that they mean. Handle life with 6 kids and a hubby that is away more than he is home.

So my big confession?

There are times when I lose it.

I yell sometimes when I shouldn’t.

I cry when the guilt overrides me if it’s been a bad day!

I’m not very nice to Paul all the time.

I don’t always worry about brushing teeth before bed (for me or the kids).

I don’t read a story to them every night.

I don’t have a clean house before bed.

The laundry is usually clean…in laundry baskets waiting to be put away.

I don’t sign up for things at school.—I’m going to add to this one. I sign up to send stuff on party days or when teachers need things. BUT as for attending PTO meetings or volunteering for classroom stuff…no I don’t.

I could go back and add excuses to all of the things I just listed. Some could be valid. BUT…{ha. excuse} I’m not going to.

I’m going to leave it at the fact that…I’m not perfect. Things are not always smooth sailing.

Gives plenty of room for improvement though.

Wouldn’t you agree?


  1. I will disagree for the following reasons:
    1. You are human
    2. You are an amazing woman
    3. You put your children's needs before your own which makes you a fantastic mom.
    4. You are loved by so many! (including me!)

  2. Your not alone.....with my 5 I sometimes feel like i'm going crazy! My house isn't clean before bed, teeth don't always get brushed here either, I definitely yell when I shouldn't, I cry, bedtime stories are not read every night, homework isn't always worked on as it should be, and don't even get me started on laundry and I could go on and on and on are a fantastic mom you love, respect and take care of your kids and that is what matters. I often feel guilty when people say i'm a good mom and ask how I do it.....I hope they don't look at my blog and think WOW because I definitely share more of the good than the bad on there. So know that you aren't alone and I think your a great mom, i'd be willing to bet those 6 beauties of yours also think that! I'm glad we've become friends, it's nice having someone who gets it!!!!!
