Time to Confess


I Confess... that by the end of the day, I am exhausted and I make the kids clean up from dinner. Garbage, Dishes, whatever. I feel it teaches them responsiblity... although last night was really funny b/c we put our plates in the sink and Drew was still eating and he said "I'll put them in the dishwasher and start it when I get done" and I went upstairs to do something... well, I heard the dishwasher going when I came down, but saw all the dishes in the sink still. He forgot to put the rest of the dishes in. As cute as he is, he says "Where is the scrubber thing? I'll do them with my hands". Sensing a bigger mess, I decided to have him wait to load those ones in later.

I Confess... that I fight with my husband over the blanket... he pulls, I pull and wrap it around myself so he can't pull back... and completely deny that I have any idea what he is talking about.

I Confess... in the mornings I wake up, wake the kids up, and my daughter makes my coffee when she goes down to eat breakfast. It saves so much time not having to run up and down the stairs when she has more time in the morning than I do. (Man, I'm feeling like a lazy mom after writing these!!)
I Confess... I havent done my taxes yet. I am dreading it. I am full of worry. But I know putting it off wont help matters, so I plan to do them this weekend.

I Confess... if the weather is good tomorrow, I am sneaking away with my husband to go on a motorcycle ride... its going to be time to get out the leathers but I have spring fever so bad, I dont even care.

I, too, am dreading taxes. I think I might have to bite the bullet and do them this weekend. Sigh. Happy Friday!

We have cabin fever here--unfortunately warm weather is not coming anytime soon.

I do the same thing with the blankets! I'm quite relieved to know I'm not the only one.
I hope you get to take your motorcycle ride!

We fight over the blankets too!! I do the tuck and roll thing. My husband hates it!

I obviously need to have more kids. I need someone to clean the kitchen at night and make me coffee in the mornings!

I haven't done our taxes yet either. I'm not dreading it really. I just haven't made the time.

Hope you have a great weekend!

I haven't done our taxes yet. It always really stresses me out, so I'm kind of ignoring it.

I think tax season stresses most normal people out! I did mine, stressed over them and hate the Govt. haha Have a great weekend!

I just sent all the stuff for our taxes to my husband so he can do it this weekend. He's out of town and needs something to do. And he thought he didn't have to be a CPA this weekend! HA!

And I can't wait till we get older and get motorcycles! We both want to be those cool parents! Ahh, someday!
