Confessions of a Bad Mommy #6

1.  Some of the toys from Nico's b-day and Christmas went straight to the Salvation Army.

2.  One time, after a particularly heinous day, I was laying on the couch, face down and Joe asked me what I was doing.  I said I was picturing our life without kids.  (These comments tend to really throw Joe for a loop!)

3.  Today when I was cutting up things for dinner with a very sharp knife I actually started banging the knife against the counter because if I didn't use the counter I was afraid I would do bodily harm to my child.  I probably looked like a maniac.  Such a bad, bad mommy moment!  She kept interrupting during play by yourself time (after two weeks with daddy at home and little routine, it takes awhile to get back......for all of us!).  

4.  When I was doing my bi-yearly dusting for Nico's party I stopped halfway through the house.  Dusting pains me.  It really does, I felt I couldn't go on any further.

5.  I don't separate my laundry.  This drives Joe insane but he rarely mentions it because I haven't dyed anything and frankly, he doesn't have to do it.  As Amanda says the laundry fairy visits each day and really, who wants to question such good fortune!

Hey Mandy,
Amy sent me your way. I have spent the evening giggling at some of your sillier stories. I've missed my Mandy letters that I used to get, so I am excited that I get to read your blog.
