'Fess up Friday


Joining the confessional with Kira again!

This week seemed to pass quickly... so quickly in fact that I am not sure that I got myself into too much trouble. She says while stuffing another handful of dark chocolate m&ms in her mouth.

Well... let's see what we've got...

1. I've been keeping this one to myself for a while, but I feel it's time I let you know...

I  watch Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy.
There!! I said it!

Well, more accurately, I TiVo them...which might even make the situation more pathetic. Some days when the house is quiet during rest/nap time and I finally sit down to eat my lunch at 2:00 (because Lord knows I haven't been able to eat my own dadgum lunch while feeding the kids theirs)... I turn it on and yell out the answers (more commonly for Wheel of Fortune than Jeopardy... seriously, how do people know some of that stuff!?!). Of course I only partake in such frivolous behavior when the laundry is done and the house is clean.
 as if the laundry is ever done or the house ever clean.

2. Sassy got a milk frother caught in her hair on my watch this week. I thought I was going to have to cut it out of her hair it was so tightly wrapped. Miraculously, we managed to release it.

3. In other Sassy news, she informed me of her future career plans.
Sassy: Mommy, when I grow up I want to be a buyer who buys every kind of toy.
Me: Wow. That's awesome.
Sassy: Yeah. And I want to live at Target.

Well, I mean, who can really blame her... that would be a sweet gig if you could get someone to pay you to do that. And as for living at Target... some days it already feels as though we do live there.

So, thanks to me... she's already livin' the dream!

4. My beloved minivan swagger wagon is disgustingly dirty.
 I think it might have something to do with this little man.

Well... him and the fact that I actually allowed him to eat those strawberries in the car. I wish I had a picture of him this afternoon when he was all squeaky clean in fresh, dry clothes following our afternoon swim, and then only moments later I found him drenched and crying in a pool of strawberry milkshake. Of course he took the lid off and dumped the contents on himself while sitting in his car seat. Once again... I cannot place all the blame on him... but I do. After all, I was the one who had a milkshake in my car (it was the free deal from my sonic today... and you know I don't pass up a freebie... especially at Sonic!) but he did sneak that treat out of the cup holder when I was strapping Chili into her seat and it was all over before I even knew what was happening.

5. Keeping in line with last week's confession on behalf of my husband, I once again submit an item courtesy of the hubs.
I drove his car this week and found this:
Okay... so you probably can't tell what that is, so I'll just tell you... IT'S BEEF JERKY!


I can't believe someone would drive around with food in their car like that.

Happy Friday... :)


  1. beef jerky?! I thought it was dead dried roaches or other scary dead bug-ness!! and I am actually not sure which is worse...

  2. Heeheee! I'm so happy you link up with me each week. For the longest time I was all alone in telling people about the mortifying things I find in my car. You make me feel normal. It's nice.

    I cracked up about the Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy thing. I *love* jeopardy but I hardly ever get to see it and it hadn't occurred to me to record it. You IS smart! I also like to watch it with my kids in the room and then shout out all hte answers for the 100 point questions and impress them with my immense knowledge (which happens every time, I assure you.)

    Thanks for linking up with me ~ have a great weekend!

  3. LOLLL Love the super fast strawberry shake story! I have, sadly, had more than my share of those too!

  4. Milk frother !?!
    I had to smile...but only because you got her hair out... :)
