Confessions of a very naughty Mumma

Sometimes I let the kids sleep in their school uniforms, so I don’t have to dress them in the morning.

In summer, if the kids go swimming after school they don’t have to take a shower.

I often put my husband’s expensive Japanese cooking knives in the dishwasher, because I can’t be arsed washing them by hand.

I hate volunteering at school (but do it anyway). Too much noise, and I never was good at crafts, sports, or entertaining children!

Some weeks, the closest I get to exercise is doing the school run.

Housework counts as exercise, doesn’t it?

Wine Time comes early some days. After school early.

When my husband is away, we often have vegemite sandwiches or cereal for dinner.

We’ve been known to cancel play dates and barbecues at our place because the house is too messy.

Once I wrote a note excusing my son from swimming lessons because he was sick, when I’d actually just forgotten to pack his togs.

My kids think I was a pirate before I became their Mum.

I would rather chew my own arm off than help my son with his homework (but do it anyway).

Sometimes I pretend I'm working, but I'm actually surfing the net, reading newspapers online, or doing Facebook or Twitter.

I use my husband's good razor to shave my legs - and don't tell him!

I give our really dirty dishes and saucepans to the dogs to lick clean first before putting them in the dishwasher. Well they don't call them dishlickers for nothing! And besides, there is a drought...

I regularly go out out wearing: kiddie sick, dog hair, cat hair, cat pee, kiddie snot, kiddie food smearings, and sometimes, a combination of all of these.

Anyone else got some Mumma Confessions they want to get off their chest?

OMG! I LOVE the ones about washing the knives in the dishwasher and having your kids sleep in their uniforms. The dishwashing one... I totally agree. Don't you have "wash by hand stuff?"... and the uniform one... now that's just SMART parenting! Good for you! :) I just loved this post!!
