Friday Confessions: SAHM Edition
Back when this blog was new (a whopping 2 years ago, ha!), I used to do Confession Friday. I was just reading some of my old posts and forgotten how much I loved doing it. Without further ado, here is my stay at home mom edition of Confession Friday.
#1 – We go out to lunch & coffee more than I would like to admit.
Those SmashBurger grilled chicken sandwiches are so good!
Some days I just don’t have a good idea of what our activity should be so I end up taking Lucas to the diner, SmashBurger or Dunkin Donuts. We sit, we chat/babble, we people watch and waste a good hour of time before the afternoon nap.
#2 – I don’t miss work but I miss my co-workers (well, some at least)
I really don’t miss work. I’ve actually had some work-related nightmares where I find myself back at my old job. I keep screaming in the dream that I’m not supposed to be there and I should be home instead. YIKES!!! Don’t send me back there. But I do miss my old friends at my old job. I miss going out to lunch and not having to worry about picking up half eaten fries off the floor. I miss dresses, fancy shoes and adult conversation. I wouldn’t trade my stay at home life for anything but I can still miss my old coworkers.
#3 – I turn on Sesame Street so I can get things done.
Mom peer pressure dictates that we shouldn’t allow our kids to watch TV but sometimes having the TV on is the only way to get anything done. I can’t cook dinner unless L is watching Sesame. If I don’t put it on, he clings to my leg and cries while I cook.
#4 – I’ve become addicted to bad daytime TV
I turn on the television when Lucas goes down for his afternoon nap. While folding laundry I’ve tuned into such keepers as the Jodi Arias trial (so freaking scandalous), Kourtney & Kim Take Miami (ashamed to even type that) and Murder, She Wrote.
#5 – I don’t always shower when I get home from the gym.
Stinky, right? Since I only have a limited amount of the time at the gym, I always shower at home. I try to get in the shower right away but that doesn’t always happen. Actually, it rarely happens. Meals come first, bottles come next and then it’s naps, bed time, bath or something else. Some days I end up going to bed without showering first. Sleep takes priority!!!
