I had planned to share baby boy’s nursery ideas with you today, but then realized that I had pregnancy and baby overload going on in my last few posts. So I figured it was time for some confessions. I’ll share his nursery mood board with you probably next week sometime.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a confessions post. Yeah, I just checked and the last one was a year and a half ago. Whoops! You can read the last confessions post HERE. And y’all….I have a lot to confess to you today.
BTW… ever time I hear “these are my confessions” I instantly start singing the Usher song in my head. Anyone else do that?
…that I have not been keeping up with my workout schedule. I had a scare a few weeks ago and ended up in the ER for the day and it was just not good. I’d already been in so much pain because baby is so low, then add that into the mix and I’m just spent. I’m lucky if I get a walk in most days. Luckily we have stairs in our house that I walk up and down 20 times a day, so that’s my new workout. That and my morning stretching.
…that I could eat Thai, Indian or Mexican food every day right now. Give me a spinach salad for lunch, with a side of OJ, then foreign food for dinner. These foods just always sound amazing. And Pho and sushi too. Add those in there and I’m a happy pregnant lady (don’t worry, I’m only eating cooked sushi; no raw fish).
…that I leave the house about 15 minutes before we need to for preschool drop off, just so that I don’t have to start a new activity with Little A, and so that I can keep her confined for a bit. This gives me time to scroll social media and read if I want. She actually likes it because she gets to listen to Taylor Swift for longer.
…that since we aren’t going on a babymoon I asked the hubs if we could spend a day and night at a nice hotel downtown. He seemed excited, but I doubt he’ll ever mention it again if I don’t bring it up. I’ll maybe ask once more then bag it. I’ll just treat myself to a few more pedicures instead.
…that sometimes I want to throw all my daughter’s toys away because I’m sick of hearing her ask for a new toy every time we go somewhere. Fine, you want a new toy, I’ll just get rid off all the other toys you already have, including the 5 you got just last month.
…and that I will often put on a movie for her because I’m tired and I don’t want to listen to her complain about xyz anymore. Plus it gives me time to read or blog.
…which is why I’m so thankful that my office is now in the bonus room. I can still be close by but I can do some work while she plays or watches a movie. I consider it a win-win.
…that I have been so freaking emotional lately I want to slap myself. I get it’s the pregnancy hormones, but my God can I just not cry for once when something upsets me?! #preggoproblems
…that I loathe glitter. Like I really cannot stand it. If Little A ever gets glitter as a gift, I usually hide it…then eventually toss it.
….that in addition to loathing glitter, I’m not a big crafter. I’ve said it before, but I honestly really hate doing arts and crafts. Poor baby girl. Her nanny was so crafty and artsy. I’d much rather go on a walk or color. This is probably because I’m not at all artistic and can’t even draw good stick people. Whenever she asks me to draw something, it’s usually horrible, or I tell her she has to wait until Daddy gets home because he can actually draw. When we do craft I try to keep it short, like under 10 minutes; that’s about all I can handle.
…let’s just continue on with the crafts shall we? If she ever leaves extra crafting items out…I toss them. Are those some extra fuzzy balls I see that fell off her art project? Perfect, they will find their way to the garbage when she isn’t looking. #sorrynotsorry
…that I play up how uncomfortable I am sometimes just so I don’t have to cuddle with Little A before bed. I bathe her, read to her, spend all day with her; it’s the hubby’s turn to step up and do some cuddling. Plus I get lots of cuddles throughout the day. I think I’m a pretty darn good mom, but there are just some days where I’ve had enough cuddle time.
… that I have been eating 2 truffles a day. Ugh, I hate myself for this one. But right now I’m wanting apple pie so I figure a few truffles won’t kill me as long as I don’t eat an entire apple pie.
So there you go. My confessions as of late. Man if my hubby reads this one I’m in trouble.
What do you have to confess today?!
**Side note: I made a bonehead move and accidentally deleted a few people off my mailing list. If you recently signed up (like after January 20th) if you could please re-sign up for the newsletter that would be fabulous. Unfortunately there’s no way for me to figure out who it was. 🙁 Thanks!
