SAHM Confessions

I don't know if any of you have watched ABC's new show called "In The Motherhood," but it's fairly funny. What I find interesting about the concept is that they have a spot on their website where real moms can share their experiences as mothers. The show will then use the best ideas as story lines for the show. It's either a great concept or the brain child of lazy writers. Regardless, if you have a great story, you can submit it here.

I thought it might be interesting to see if any SAHMs that read this blog have some deep, dark secret about being a SAHM they would like to share. Every parent has something they do or have done that they may not be proud of or wouldn't ever tell someone. But this is a safe place where no one can judge you. So, what do you want to confess? Enter my confessional booth and lay it on me.

I'll even start. A couple of nights ago my wife walked by the bathroom and stopped in her tracks. I was standing at the toilet doing what guys do when they stand in front of the toilet. That, itself is nothing weird. Sure the door was open, but we're that family, so whatever.

The strange part was that I was holding my 3 week old son at the time. While peeing. With the door open. And I have to say, I'm not even the least bit ashamed. I just chalk up to another thing I can do with one hand. Alright, I confessed. Now it's your turn.

  1. Hmm...confessions huh? I guess I can say that I use my SAHM status and the kids I take care of (daycare) as a flimsy excuse as to not attend certain things. Church activity during the day? Sorry, can't do it, have kids at home. Time for a PB/GYN appt? Shoot...I've got kids at home, there's really no way I can schedule that right now. PTA, etc etc? Just not possible as I have kids at home. *giggle*

    And thanks for the Amos Lee suggestion. I actually love his version of "Colors". What songs do you particularly like from the newer album?

    Oh, and just curious about the 'other things' you are able to do with one hand... *wink*
