Monday Night Confessions

 Duh Duh Duh…..

  • Mom guilt is an ugly dirty thing isn’t it?  I get Mom Guilt because I work and have to leave my son every day.  I hate leaving him, it breaks my heart when I walk out my front door at 7:00 a.m. 5 days a week.  I hate that when I come home I feel Mom Guilt if I do anything other than give him my 100% undivided attention.  I know he is little and won’t remember this, but I will.  I hate that my son is growing up without me there.  I hate that when I come home at nights he has more hair than when I left him, that he is a little bigger and a little fatter.  I am sad that I miss all the great things he does and learns during the day.  Don’t get me wrong, in an economy like this I am truly blessed to have this wonderful job that allows me to support my family, but man it is hard. 
  • RR is getting so independent and I have a love/hate thing with his budding independence.  I love to see him learn and grow and want to do things on his own.  It makes me proud that he is achieving his milestones and that his understanding is growing.  But….it makes me want to beat him sometimes.  Not really beat him, but you know, just kinda beat him.  Let’s take his bottle feedings, I swear he rips the bottle out of his mouth every 2 seconds and grins all big and wants me to be proud of him, and it’s all I can do not to laugh and then want to bop him on the head with his hot jug.  If I was still nursing it would drive me nuts, so at this time I will give thanks that he is bottle fed.
  •  I have talked about the evils of Facebook on my confessions before, but Facebook is like an evolving beast and so it warrants new comments every now and again.  I have to say that I love the “hide” button on FB.  I love that when big political things happen and everyone runs to FB to cheer on one side or the other, that for a few weeks I can hide the ones who are the most vocal about the subject.  And don’t you worry, I am very bipartisan when it comes to hiding people, I hide both sides.  It makes my FB viewing much more pleasant when I don’t have to be bombarded by it all.  Then once the storm blows over I unhide them all again so I can read the fun, normal, day-to-day, non political things that happen in their lives.  So thank you FB for the “hide” button, I {heart} you, as I am sure everyone else is who has hidden me thanks to that stupid annoying Farmville, and you know what, I’m good with that too.  
  • So a few weeks back I went and joined Weight Watchers, and lost myself a little weight (yay me, good job, pats on my back).  You know what drives me nuts about this?  The fact that I have to pay a company $40 a month  to help me lose weight because I apparently can’t do it unless I pay someone.  I mean honestly Carolyn, put the fork down, how hard is that?  Whatever, at least something is working huh?
  • I still wear my maternity shirts to sleep in at night.  Why did I not think of those before I ever had a baby?  They are like a little piece of heaven, they are big and soft and comfy and I love sleeping in them.  I am thinking of buying me a few new ones to add in the rotation.  Ok so I am not really going to buy new ones just to sleep in, at least not right now.
