Confessions Of A Mother

I confess...

That I hide food in the cupboard that I don't want to share with my kids. At any given time you may find chocolate, candy, and other snacks hidden high and safe. I tell myself it's to help keep them healthy.

I'm not as interested as I look when they tell me all about what's happening in their video games or books. I love that they're excited though so I smile and and nod in all the right places so they'll keep talking.

I've gone to the store to buy the kids clean socks because all of there socks are dirty. I've heard I'm not the only mom who's done that.

I don't share my drinks with my kids. I know how much they backwash.

I don't really want any more gifts of candles, picture frames, or lotion. But I keep every little card that they make me in a box by my bed.

I go to bed every night worrying if I'm doing a good job raising them.

I go to bed every night vowing to do even better the next day.

Every time one of my kids has a birthday I feel sad. Sad because I know I'm closer to having to let them go.

There are some days when I dream about getting away for a while. But just driving to the store with out my kids makes me feel incomplete.

It annoys me when people refer to motherhood as a "job". It's a blessing and a gift.

Most of the time I don't like to homeschool but I love having my kids home with me everyday.

I confess that being their mom is my highest honor.

I could never do this without the help of God.


  1. I don't homeschool, but otherwise I can relate to everything you've said here. Yes and amen. :)

  2. You have a gorgeous family and are such an amazing mother! I must confess I do most of the same. Love you!
