Guilty as charged.

I do all the things I said I wouldn't do when I became a parent. 

I bribe.

I raise my voice.

My kids wear character shoes. And shirts. And dresses and whatever else they plaster Elmo and Dora all over.

My kids rarely behave as I expect them to in public.

That giggly roar coming from the rack of clothing in the boys' section at Sears? Totally my kid.

I often forget to sign paperwork and report cards and homework folders.

My babies wear cheap diapers.

I consider everyone wearing matching shoes and having their hair brushed before leaving the house a success.

I worry too much about how other's parents perceive me and my parenting abilities.

I let my toddler make ungodly amounts of noise in stores, without raising an eyebrow.

I care way too much about keeping my house clean.

And don't spend nearly enough time getting my hands dirty with my kids.


I want to start shooting again. I can feel the inspiration stirring.

  1. You said it perfect! Especially the Character clothes! haha...I always said he would be so dapper all the time, but sometimes he stays naked half the day. And I raise my voice, feed him cookies, let him eat chicken nuggets and fries (he was only gonna eat fruits and veggies forever), the list goes on. I think we do what we have to in order to survive! And just as I type this my little one decides to leave me a present on the floor....bathroom here we come!
