Delicious Secrets of a Mom Blogger

Delicious Secrets of a Mom Blogger


Lately I've been hearing a lot about how Pinterest and bloggers are making Moms feel inadequate, like they aren't doing enough with their kids compared to other Moms.  Luckily, I doubt anyone feels that way about my blog since I'm a bit of a moron.

However, one of my fellow bloggers, At Home With Ali  did a fun post about things she doesn't usually share on her blog.  Ali is one of those amazing bloggers with insanely beautiful photos and creative ideas but in this post she admits that sometimes her kids wear pajamas all day.  And she yells.  The horror!! :-)  I really enjoyed reading her post about her delicious little secrets so much that I thought I would share some of my own delicious secrets with my readers.  As you will see, I'm certainly not a perfect Mom.

1.  My kids have gone a full week without a bath
2.  Last week, I was home alone with the kids and little Buddy pooped, and I pretended I didn't smell it for awhile because I really hate changing poopy diapers.  He squirms and kicks and tries to grab the diaper and sometimes I just can't face it.
3.  I love putting my kids to bed, mainly because I'm so excited for some adult time.  This is especially true if I'm home alone and I know I'll get to watch Real Housewives all by myself.
4.  When we pick up my favorite sub sandwiches, I order a cookie for myself, but not for the kids and I wait to eat it until they've gone upstairs for naps.
5.  Sometimes I hear my daughter jumping on her bed during nap time.  I don't go yell at her.  I just smile, glad that she's staying upstairs where she is supposed to be.
6.  Not that long ago, I put aluminum foil on a bowl and popped it in the microwave.  Hubby heard strange noises and came running over and explained to me that you can't put foil in the microwave.  I'd like to say that I just forgot about that rule and that's why I almost blew up my house and my family, but I honestly swear I never learned that rule.  I've probably been doing it for years.
7.  Little Buddy's first trip to the ER was totally my fault.  Note to self: Wild wrestling encouraged by Mom is not a good idea, especially if it takes place close to furniture.  Bloody heads will be the result.
8.  I haven't ironed in over two years
9.  I wash my jeans about twice a year
10.  Sometimes I wear the same clothes two days in a row.

Okay, I better stop or you will lose all respect for me.  I would really love to hear your delicious secrets... 



Oh, and PLEASE vote for me, will ya??  I would LOVE to get back into the top 5!!!  I NEED SOME VOTES!!!  I really appreciate your support!!

  1. I wear my jeans for 2 days - it's the green thing to do, after all. I wish I could bury the iron but hubby still needs it for church shirts. Once I went to the Dairy Queen and foolishly left the wrapper that goes around their cone on the car floor and my daughter was very upset that I had gotten ice cream without her. Hide the evidence!

    1. Haha, yes, hiding the wrapper is essential!! :-)

  2. Oh gosh I can say I've done most of those! (except the foil, hehe). But my kids have definitely gone a week without a bath and I hate to iron! I only wash my jeans if they are too stretched out to stay up and I definitely wear the same thing 2 days in a row, especially if no one has seen me but my kids! :)

    1. Haha, I feel the exact same way bout jeans! And then I'm mad when they are too tight after I wash them!! :-)

  3. hehe I love it. My 4 year old doesn't know what an iron is because she has never seen it. And our first trip to emergency was my fault too, apparently little elbows dislocate easily when you swing them.... I am still embarrassed/mortified by that one. Thank you for being so kind about my post. :)

  4. I love, love, love this post! It sounds like my life when my kids were little. (And it hasn't changed much, now that they're grown!)

  5. Love this. I have done lots of these. I always have a sheet around me on the couch to hide food or candy from the kids. They are little smart things though and will say "What is in your mouth?" I will say something I know they don't like. Now they will ask 'Can I see?"

    1. Ooh a sheet! What a great idea!! :-)

  6. I love #2. I've tried that before only to fail since I can't help but to smell my daughter's poopy diaper.

  7. I haven't ironed forever! In fact, right now I don't even own an iron. When I got married my husband was disgusted that I use the same knife for peanut butter and jelly or liking the spoon then spooning out sour cream. Just like your aluminum foil and the microwave, I had never thought about that before, and would explain why sometimes my sour cream got moldy... With parenting, I sometimes let my daughter watch TV until 3 pm while she goes the entire day lying on the couch like a zombie eating just a little and still in her PJ's and original diaper (and I'm on the Internet.) Hope I get out of that funk soon!

  8. As a new mom-to-be, this is so encouraging (not to mention hilarious)! I'm so glad that I don't have to be perfect in order to be a great mom!

  9. How totally cool. :) This is awesome. Yes, I've done almost all of it. Especially the last 3. Actually what's ironing anyway? lol Ha!

    I have a Muddy Mama Monday thing where people share pics on my Facebook page. I'm starting to take guest posts for that as well. It's such an encouragement to know we aren't the only ones who make mistakes and that being in P.j.'s isn't bad. :) I love it. You should guest post!

  11. I found your blog/this post on Pinterest and I am so glad I did! Thank you for your honesty because Moms all too often think they are the worst mom in the world and that no one else has little "secrets". Pinterest has made that warped sense of normalcy even more rampant! ;) Now I think my home should be perfectly organized and that I should have a raised bed garden outside (built by myself of course), that all meals should be homecooked and possibly with a perfect picture taken of each step done to make the meal, and that every single present I made must be homemade with perfection or it just won't mean as much. I have to remind myself to snap out of it after I spend to much time on Pinterest ;)

    Thanks for sharing your real life. And I will be voting for you!

    1. Stephanie I'm so glad you found my blog too! I agree that Pinterest makes you feel like you aren't doing enough...for me, that's especially too in the cooking department!! :-) Thanks so much for visiting and for the votes!!

  12. I so loved this post! I've just found your blog and you gave me a good giggle this morning! I must admit, I'm right there with you sister on almost all of your points...I've stretched the jeans to maybe 3 days... one time last year, it dawned on me I wasn't sure when my son had last had a bath {could've been a week or more}. my kids are a bit older than yours so they do not have nap time... but man do I WisH they DID! I have a mentally challenged daughter and she is my shadow... I've been known to yell {just a little,lol} WE have also had takeout for an entire week straight because I've forgotten to defrost food for dinner!

  13. You are going to think I'm crazy for leaving you so many comments! I wanted to share with you that I've mentioned you in this post http://tiarasandbowties.blogspot.com/2012/06/confessions-of-not-so-perfect-mommy.html where you've inspired me to create a list of 10 things I normally wouldn't share on the blog... the things that make me 'me' but not perfect!
    Hugs
