Confession Time...

Yeah. I have some confessions I'm going to confess to you, o blog world.

#1) I my first confession I mentioned to you in Adie's 3 year post. Yes, I have been heating up my now 3 year old's milk for over 2 years. The Doctor said there was nothing wrong with it but seriously.. the last 2 years at Bible Memory Camp our cabin didn't have a microwave so I had to treck up the hill to the kitchen every day at 6:30am to heat up my then 2-year old's milk. So how is the breaking of "hot milk" going? Adie hasn't drank milk in 9 days. =/ She's showing me... My daughter is going to have osteoporosis in spite of me.

#2) Adie has a puzzle of the USA map. Um, I SUCK at it! Who knows where the Dakota's are unless you LIVE in the Dakota's, seriously!? So her puzzle is not only teaching her the map of the US but it's teaching her college educated mother as well.

#3) On that note.. a few years ago I was so tired of not knowing where they meant when the New England Patriots played.. finally asked Darin where they were and who'da guessed it! Adie's puzzle has all those states lumped together and conveniently labeled "New England" so they generational curse of not knowing where New England is will be broken. Just don't ask me how many and which states are considered "New England" because Adie's map doesn't differentiate that. Darin is SO gunna have to help the girls with homework when they bring it home from school... if they want help with their make-up, want to learn how to shoot on manual or want me to help them scrapbook I got it.

#4) I've come to the conclusion we need DVR. You ask if I want to record LOST and replay it to catch all the things we missed the first time around?
Nah.
To watch "So you think we can dance" this summer because my hubby hates to watch it with me?
Nah.
I want to DVR to record Dateline and 48 Hours Mystery.
Yep.
I am an old fart in that I LOVE to watch Dateline and 48 Hours Mystery. Darin has asked me if it's because I'm taking note on how to take him out one day because seriously, the spouse is always the killer. BUT last weekend I invested 1 hour and 50 minutes of my life to Dateline on Friday night about some chick who murdered 2 of her husbands. And then I fell asleep with 10 minutes left. I have NO CLUE if she was convicted! Ah. Then I watched 48 hours mystery on Saturday night and some chick sliced up her husband and again, I fell asleep with 10 minutes left. So I have no clue if it was self defense, yo. So if someone could let me know what happened in either case, that would be splendid since I did you the favor of letting you in on why I want DVR.

#5) Joya mastered the art of stealing toys from her sister this morning. She would grab something very meaningful of Adie's and then run with it above her head. As if this would prevent her taller sister from grabbing it. Why is this one of my confessions? Because it is HILARIOUS! I am the mother! I should be firm and let Joya know it's a no-no to take things and run. It is so hard to punish your kids when you think something is hilarious. =/ I am sure you can all relate. And I can relate with Joya the swiper because I too was the little sister stealing things from my sister. It really is an art.. and Joya is on track to be an amazing little swiping sister!

#6) Adie and I color together just about every day. And EVERY DAY I am coloring away and the girl leans over and scribbles all over my almost complete page. I know.. I am the mom.. this shouldn't bother me but seriously.. I don't scribble all over her page! This doesn't bother me a whole bunch but maybe just a little. Ok, maybe a tad bit more than a little. Does your kid do this!?

Ok. Confession complete. Make sure you tell me a confession of your own in my comments! Please tell me I'm not the only one out there that is giving their daughter osteoperosis, watches Dateline religiously and thinks it's funny when your youngest steals things from the oldest.

Confession #1: My 5 year old still sucks her fingers, and I can't figure out how to make her stop. I'm sure we're going to pay for it with braces.

Confession #2: My hubby and I watch America's Test Kitchen on PBS for FUN! We would DVR that for sure if we had one! We're so boring, but we love to cook!

I love the coloring confession! Brodie brought home a poster that he's supposed to make for his birthday at school and he started to color on it and I actually had to sit on my hands to not correct everything he was doing! Seriously kid - you only make ONE poster a year and you're drawing WHAT?!?

Then I remember that he has to do what he wants. It IS his poster and not mine. But wouldn't my scrapbooking supplies have added so much to it?!? Ugh

Kat said...

your confessions totally made me laugh! love them!
don't worry, adie won't get osteoporosis. i've been studying dairy recently (had to give it up for my crazy diet) and no one actually needs it. i have some tips of how you can get calcium other ways if you want to email me :)
oh, and i have no idea where any states are, so don't feel bad.

I love Dateline, 48 hours and Snapped...Oh Snapped is good...all these women that snap and kill someone. I think it comes out on the WE channel.

Dina said...

my confession is that I LOVE local news. i watch it every morning from 6:15-6:45 and every evening usually from 5-6. im sad if i miss it. oh, and I watch saturday mornings tooo....

Kirsten said...

that missing the last 10 minutes of a show is the exact reason why we got a a DVR ... I can not for the life of me stay up to see the end of the 9pm shows ... so now I don't have to! Boy i feel old.

Glad I'm not the only one who gets slightly irritated when my almost 4year old decides to "help" me finish my crayola work of art! Ha! So sad...:) By the way, my husband can't stand watching Dateline and 48 Hours Mystery. He just doesn't get it!

Angie said...

I'm with Dina on the local news thing.
I try to catch the evening news whenever I can! And here's the confession part: before I took my 3rd shift job over a year ago, one of my unwritten "cons" of accepting the position was that I'd be missing the 11:00 news on WNDU. Yep. Seriously. It was the perfect end to a day before going to bed! And now I go to work instead :(

Angie said...

Oh and you can tell Jackie (first comment) my honest opinion on sucking of the thumb. Keep in mind I'm not a mother, rather a former thumb sucker. I sucked my thumb until I was almost 11 years old (honest to goodness) and I do NOT have an overbite and have never needed braces.
I truly think good/bad teeth are either in your genes or they aren't. But that's just my experience. . . . .

My confession... I stink at being on facebook/blogging sabbatical. I'm obviously failing at it right now!!!! :)

Amy said...

My confession is our 3.5 year old STILL sleeps in our bed! That's a habit we probably need to break. :)
