Default It's Fess Up Friday!

Ok....I made that up.

Here's my fess up....

When a kid is having an extra hard day following rules, I tell the kid we need to text mamma. I use Siri so the kid can hear what I am saying....

"DCM Little Johnny is having a hard time following rules and I felt you should know. Please talk to him about this at home"

OK....I actually text myself.

I have the kid press "send"

Immediately my own text tone sounds

"Look, mamma already texted back!!!! She said you need to behave or your will have consequences tonight."

I'm sneaking gummy bears every time I go into the kitchen.

I give the kids buckets of soapy water and sponges and we have a "car wash" for our ride-on toys, bikes and scooters which somehow mysteriously seems to always move on to washing the chairs, outside tables, outside toys etc and miraculously all of the backyard toys and surfaces are scrubbed clean.

My morning "orange juice" is actually crystal light with caffeine. Lately, I need it.

This. DH thought it would be a brilliant idea to buy a 6 pound bag.... I've had more than the kids. By a lot. I go into the kitchen and it's right there calling me...

Someone save me... 😭

I put soda in my coffee cup (I drink tea, coffee or water but now and then a cold diet coke is awesome)

Instead of the kids books on cd, we are listening to the podcasts I have yet to get to. HAHA! They are childcare related/G rated so it's nothing bad, but still. Dcg/3 says "This is a weird story Miss!"

When all 3 kids fell asleep yesterday, I moved furniture around so the computer wasn't viewable from either crib but I could still see both cribs, put on headphones and an inward-facing Ergo containing the sleeping infant, and watched 3 straight episodes of iZombie. (Hey--those of us with Netflix waited a LONG time for season 2 to drop!)
