Friday Confessional


Photobucket


I confess....
Yesterday Mark head butted me teeth first. I thought he broke my nose at first. I now have a lovely bump on my nose and two little teeth marks. Parenthood is dangerous!


I took the kids to the park for exactly 25 minutes this morning. I left because I could feel the angry stares and hear the other moms talking about me, and not in a good way. And......

I confess....
I might have deserved it. I overheard a mom complaining that she wanted to have the baby now. And that she was doing all the old wives tales to induce labor. But here's what ticked me off and made me speak up, she's only 36 weeks pregnant! I tried to be quiet for about 10 seconds and then said "no you really don't want to have that baby now. There is a reason why you are supposed to be pregnant for 40 weeks. Trust me, my son has CP because he was born premature and the NICU experience is a nightmare." Did she thank me for hearing my story and realize that she was putting her own selfish needs above the health of her daughter? Nope! Instead she cussed me out and told me that her daughter was already 6 pounds so she wouldn't be retarded like my son. I left before I got arrested for assault and battery. I will not engage that behavior in front of my kids.

I confess....
My blood is still boiling and my hands are shaking as I type. Did you seriously call my kid the r word? Do you really think that's OK and that CP means mental retardation? Oh that's right, you're ignorant that's why you said it! This is why I normally don't engage the other moms at the park. I would say lesson learned, but I know better, I'd do it again. Maybe she'll go home and tell her husband the story and he will get it and knock some sense into her. I doubt it!

I confess....
I love the Children's Museum in our city. They keep it nice and cool and my kids stay entertained for the morning. I don not love that they open at 10 during the summer instead of 9.

They have a camping exhibit. Molly and Isabella are "roasting" marshmallows.



I confess....
Mark keeps getting nose bleeds in his sleep. I feel bad for the poor guy, but it's sooooo annoying! I have to wash his sheets everyday! By the way, Oxi Clean gets out dried blood in case you ever need to get some out.

Mark after his nap.

I confess....
Super Why on PBS is my new favorite kid show. It's not annoying and they are super readers. The show is about books!! I love it! Isabella learned their version of the ABC's after watching 2 episodes. And she keeps telling us that she is going to be a super reader when she starts school. Thanks Super Why!















I confess....
If I had quads, I would dress them up as the super readers for Halloween.

  1. Oh my gosh, I give you so much credit for not beating the crap out of that woman! What she said makes me furious and it isn't my kid. Those are the kinds of people you almost wish bad things would happen to...

    Maybe Mark's nose just gets too dry while he is sleeping because of the climate here. Have you tried putting on a little vasoline before hand?

  2. one) I have nearly had my nose broken many many times their damn heads/teeth are rough!
    two) I also hate socializing or "trying to make friends" with park parents... i hate the park and the ppl in them for the most part... and if i like them i HATE their kids lol!!
    three) When i was a kid i would have a nose bleed daily... once i had a vacation in osoyoos (B.C.'s desert) and it was one big nose bleed with hour long breaks here and there. Once i was 12 my daily nose bleeds just stopped... happened usually when i got over heated :)

  4. I CANNOT believe someone would have the nerve to say that about Mark! I am so sorry! My mouth fell to the floor as I read that. I don't know that I would have been able to restrain myself as well as you did!

    Now on a more positive note, I also love Super Why! My kids will pretend to be the Super Readers and it's so stinkin' cute!
