I Confress Friday

Joining up again with Glamazon Mormon Mom for a great round of Friday Confessionals. Click the button to see more great confessions, and join in.. it feels good to vent.



I confess that I have very little empathy for sick people,
well let me clarify whinny sick people.
maybe I am just mean....
maybe it came from my mom never babying me even with my heart problem
maybe it is because I cannot stand whining and if I hear nnnnahhhh nahhhh nahhhh (the "words" my daughter choose to solely use when she is upset/sick) one more time I think I might crack.

I know you don't feel good Alex,
but if you want me to cuddle with you and hold you and take care of you
stop with the nnnahhh nahhs, and the arching the back and kicking when I try and comfort you..yeah I am so over that.

And I confess on Wednesday I may have had the kids in bed a half hour early because I was putting them to bed by myself and if I didn't get them into bed, well it wouldn't be good for anyone.

I am so looking forward to this weekend and well Eric don't be surprised if I seem to slip away and disappear a bit at bed time, I might just need to.. especially if I hear nahhh nahh nahhs all day, just giving you a heads up.

Hopefully next week will be better.

****Oh and over this weekend my blog may suddenly look totally diferent!! I won a blog makeover and will tell you all about it and the wonderful designer once it is up!! There that helped me feel better. :)*******

  1. I'm so glad I'm not the only one. I thought maybe I was a heartless witch, but I can't stand whiny sick people. I've been known to say "suck it up and deal with it" but it isn't my best parenting moment.

  2. I'm the same way when it comes to sick people! I mean, I like to nurse them back to health, but if all they do is whine about it, GIVE ME A BREAK! I have also been known to say "gee, that's rough. I wish I had some idea of what that feels like..."

  13. Oooooh, a makeover. How cool!! I can't wait to see you all shiny and new :)

    Not sure why girls are so whiny and MEAN simultaneously. I don't love that either. Your confession resonates with me. I sure hope she feels better soon. For everyone's sake.

  22. Whining is the worst. Absolutely!

    My neices and nephews get loads of payoff from whining at home. But they don't like me so much because when they try it with me I flatly tell them to "suck it up and stop whining" .

    Surprisingly, they use normal voices around me.

    My own kids, well, that's a different story.

  23. Whining is the worst annoyance, especially when you're tired from the expenditure of energy sick kids require. I can relate to putting the kids to bed early when you're the only one home with them...I'm glad you admitted that!
    It happens often enough in our house.
    Congrats on the blog makeover. Can't wait to see it.

  26. loving your blog makeover. particularly that you are juggling a baby, amongst other things. love it:-) totally hit how i've been feeling right on the head, lol. i've been finding myself getting brennan to bed not a minute past 8pm, when before i didn't really care as long as he went to bed between 8 and 8:30. now, 8:30 seems like a bedtime failure! haha, must remind myself to enjoy despite the lack of sleep and whiney toddler.

  27. Cute blog design. Was it April Showers?? I was just on her blog the other day and saw the curvy top design over there.

    Sorry your little one is sick. Buster hasn't been sleeping very well at night...like waking up for an hour each night. I'm exhausted.
