How’s about another Lazy Mom Confession, jes?
Good, cause I’m posting one anyway.
It makes me feel like a more normal mom when I read your confessions. Because at some point us moms just don’t always get it right (see the second half of what a Lazy Mom is exactly to refresh your memory on this) and when we share our mothering shortcomings with each other we help shatter the whole “supermom” image we think we have to live up to for some reason.
And then we can cry, eat chocolate and watch a sappy movie together.
See how important these confessions are for us?
Anyway, this confession was emailed to me last week from lazy mom Sarah and I love it! Prepare to love it too.
My lovely 13-year old calls me at work to say there isn’t any food in the house. She and the 8-year old are hungry.
I said make a PB&J and she comes back with there isn’t any bread.
I said check the freezer – nada.
I mentioned Ramen Noodles – totally out.
Spaghetti O’s possibly? Nope.
I remembered that I (how could you?) ate the last apple last night – doh!
Good ole’ cereal?? Nope.
And she says, “Besides mom, the milk is gone too.” (Have you ever heard of dry cereal??!)
With each suggestion my face is turning a darker shade of red. I am a disgrace to mothers! I am recalling a Nursery Rhyme here about a cupboard as my daughter continues to tell me all the items we are out of.
Mind you, I am dealing with a sick 6 month old, attended a funeral the night before and I work full time.
So I cave and do the only thing I could think of…had a pizza delivered.
Have a Lazy Mom Confession to share? Do it! if you dare…..
