I fell in love with the blog E, Myself and I this week and her "Midweek Confessions" is my
absolute fav. part of the blog. So when she offered a LINKUP I jumped up and took it!
Time for my very own little version of "midweek confessions" dum dum dum ( that was
my drum roll folks). Saturday I came down with my 2nd sinus infection pretty much
exactly 1 month to the day of the 1st one, this time with the lovely add on of bronchitis.
At the same time John's gma was taken to the ER, 3.5 hours away down in Norfolk, VA.
So John rushed down to be with her and I stayed with E. I told him we were having our
very own Lauren and E sleepover. Confession #1, Sat.morning was raining and disgusting
out. E's tball game was supposed to be cancelled so I stayed in bed and slept instead of
going to team pictures. When I woke up I had not only missed the pictures but the game
had somehow managed to go on despite the wet field, great. Last year I missed every
game due to work, this year I'm at 95% of practices and almost every game( unless we are
out of state/town visiting family.)
Confession #2 I spent a large portion of Saturday reading blogs on the Ipad. Like a
ridiculous amount of time. I pretended to watch JAKE and the neverland pirates and
DocMcStuffins but really I was finding a ton of new blog addictions. I made dinner and
played and all the while, I was thinking of those blogs. I was obsessed on a Saturday.
Moving on in the week to Confession #3 I gave a time out in the middle of CVS, yes you
read me right. I threatened it, three to five times, I was ignored over and over and was
even growled at and I gave a time out right then and there...in the chip aisle. He's
smarter than I thought. I wasn't even buying chips, how we ended up in his fav. place, I'll
never know. He can't read but I heard his tiny whispers of, "nacho cheese, cheetos, fritos
and bbq." He started to move down the aisle and I made him go back to the start of the
aisle and so we went.
Monday was a rush, It was our first day without daycare. I woke up feeling muuuuuch
worse and could barely get out of bed. I scheduled a dr. apt and took a steaming hot
shower. I had 5 min. left to get ready before I had to pick E up from pre-k. I grabbed the
Ipad, a book for him and a granola bar as a snack until I could get him lunch after my dr.
apt and ran for the door. The doctors with a 4yr old lets not even talk about that! oh and
the ipad is only helpful if the games are saved on the desktop b/c they wont give you the
password for the internet btw, way to go medical practice!
Confession #4 it wasn't until 6pm that night that I realized my underwear was on inside
out. I can't even say I had on a solid color and it was any easy mix up, these were brightly
colored, pretty floral, with a bow on the front, a freakin BOW and I still managed to wear
them and not notice all day : ( way to go lauren.
confession #5 I wear yoga pants, a lot, sometimes I wonder if this means people will
actually think I worked out. Then I think, they prob wonder why I haven't lost any
weight : /
confession #6 I gave E a smore Saturday night as an extra special surprise for our Lauren
and E sleepover. We try not to give him a lot of unhealthy snacks/ sugar and It was his
first ever smore. I was soooo excited to share such a childhood love of mine with him. I've
been wanting to make him a smore for awhile now and this seemed like a great chance!
Last 4th of July I bought stuff to make them and he left too early to go to his mom's. So
when I saw the smore display at the store on Friday I was so excited. His eyes lit up as
we toasted the marshmallows and then disaster struck, kid couldn't deal and I have to
admit I was disappointed. He hates getting messy and wanted THREE paper towels to wipe
his hands as he ate...all THREE bites!!!! I'm an adult and I felt guilty for feeling
disappointed. He enjoyed his three bites and that's all that matters, I guess. I enjoyed the
remaining bites and that counts for something I suppose.
