My Wife Mommy Me Confessions

One of my favorite types of posts, Facebook statuses or photos to read and see are ones that share a Momma's not so proud moments. When someone chooses to share what real life is like. I try very hard to keep things real on here and via social media. Of course, I have my pride and keep the very worse to myself. Okay and maybe with a few of my closest friends. But just in case someone out there though they were reading a blog by someone who has her act together, I thought I would confess a few things. Maybe make you feel like you aren't the only one. Or better yet, that there is someone out there who is a bigger of a hot mess than you (raises hand...).

I would give anything... anything at all, you name it... for a sitter that could get Connor to bed at night so that James and I could go out on a date. I'm so obsessive over C going to bed on time and without incident so date night has been pushed to the back burner. I miss spending time OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE with my husband. I'm thinking I may need to get over my bedtime control freak ways and just plan something and let whatever happens happen.

You know the Moms that are dressed nicely, hair done and makeup applied just perfectly? I want to be one of them. Not so much because appearances matter but because on the very rare occasion I dress up and do my hair and makeup, I love how I feel. I like knowing that I don't look homeless #serious. Maybe I'm wrong for thinking I don't need all that to head to the park to play... maybe I do. Who knows?

I have so much coming up in September that I have no clue where I'm going to find the energy for it all. Busy Mommas that juggle it all so well, how do you do it? I don't know if there is enough caffeine for all the busyness that's coming our way. However, I'm going to take each chapter and make the very must of it. Even if I have dark circles and yawn constantly.

Kids say the damnest things. Seriously. I need to get my act together because you know it's bad when a 2 year old notices you look a mess. While at the grocery store Connor leaned out of the car cart and asked "Mommy, did you forget to brush your hair?". The saddest part is that no... I didn't forget. I purposely did my hair that way. And we are circling back to confession number 2.

My birthday is in 2 months and Christmas soon after and I've created the most EPIC wish list. I don't even care that I'm almost 33 and shouldn't have a birthday or Christmas list. I do and I'm awfully proud of every single item on that list. I will admit it's add that I have a OneNote document with quick links to each item but I'm just trying to help folks out during the holiday seasons. Shopping made simple courtesy of Stephanie. They will be thanking me come mid-December.

I'm a full time stay at home Mom and on Tuesday, James carried laundry to the basement and I made the comment that I was going to do laundry on Wednesday. He replied "I'm running out of clothes". There is no excuse as to why I haven't touched the laundry other than I wanted to finish "Who Do You Love?". Book lovers everywhere understand this all too well.

I promise nothing is ever 100%  together in our world. One area might be flourishing while another is suffering. That's life in the Cox household. And while I wish things would be different in certain ways, I really love our chaotic life as a family of 3. Even thought it leaves me looking like a mess with too much laundry to do and not enough time to read!
