Friday Confessional

I'm linking up again for Friday Confessional.
I confess....
I've been sick this week and I am a big baby when I'm sick. To add insult to injury, my allergies are acting up as well and Isabella caught my cold too.
I confess....
I started to get sick on Wednesday and since then I've been letting my 3 year old watch a lot of TV. And I'm too tired and sick to care.
I confess....
Today Molly slipped in some spilled water in the kitchen. She slipped like a cartoon character on a banana peel, and I couldn't help but laugh at her. It was so funny and she wasn't hurt so I'm not as bad of a mom as I sound. In fact I'm laughing at the memory of it right now.

I confess....
I let my daughter wear her fancy Christmas/Easter dressed anytime she wants to. I figure we can fight the battles that matter and she should wear them more than once. Today she is wearing her Christmas Eve dress and she looks pretty darn cute.

I confess....
We bought a hamper for all the balls my kids have. Today Isabella decided they should play in it. To get out she called for help in Spanish (Thanks Diego!) even though she can get herself out without help. After a few minutes of this, she got her siblings in on the action. This is the best use of the hamper yet. But it eventually ticked off the twins because they wanted out and big sister had her own agenda.

Notice the fancy dress?

In confess....
We haven't left the house since Tuesday due to illness and we are getting a little stir crazy. OK fine, a lot stir crazy. I really need to feel better tomorrow.


Happy Friday! What do you confess? Link up and play along!


  1. I confess....that I'm a bit jealous that you have wood floors in your home while I'm stuck with the same stock carpet that came with our home when we bough it back in 2001.

    I confess....that I've laughed a few times myself when our kids take a tumble ;)

    I confess....that I just found your blog and signed up as your new follower!

  2. hehe, I love it! There are times where I kind of want to put on one of my fancy dresses I've only worn once and just lounge around the house. I commend her fashion forward thinking. ;-)

  3. I love your view on your daughters fancy dress! She will remember that as an adult and love you for it. Very good advice to a parent--pick the battles that are REALLY important.

    :)Happy Friday!

  10. Getting in the hamper is TOO cute!

  11. I love all your confessions and pictures.
    I confess that my girls get to watch to much tv on days when I feel sick and I don't even feel bad about it.
    I confess that I too laugh when my kids fall.
    I confess that I too have a soft spot for "that look" of my youngest one.
    I confess that I too let my kids wear their special occation dresses at least once a week. I found Sundays to be the best for no other day is more special than the day we can just hang out together and wear or pretty dresses.
    I confess that I too have a laundry basket just like that for our stuffed animals. Love it :)
