These are my confessions...

Linking up with Andrea @ Momfessionals for

Today the topic is Momfessional Moments!

Grocery Shopping
I won't let anyone go with me when I grocery shop.
I like to get my Starbucks coffee when I walk in the door to Kroger and then get in and get out!
I don't want to be dragged down by X wanting to check out the toys, walking away from me (he doesn't like to ride in the cart, nor do I have room), etc.

After School Snacks
I totally supply X with Twinkies, fruit snacks, fruit bars, etc. when we get home from school/work.
Thankfully, he is a really good eater (fruits and veggies) so I am able to get away with giving him some junk food and he still eats his dinner an hour or so later.

Too much TV
Not gonna lie, the only babysitter X has ever had other than grandparents is the TV.
I tend to turn the TV on Disney Jr as soon as we walk in the door after school/work.
He watches on and off, plays with Lego's, eats a snack and I get to change my clothes, maybe make dinner or get a workout in.

I love frosting!
As a kid I would make a bowl of homemade frosting with my grandma and have it for a snack!
My child now loves frosting just as much as I do!
He is known for ruining a good cupcake by licking the frosting off and then being done.
Once or twice* I may have told him we were out of cupcakes so I could enjoy the last one ;)

I am a stickler for washing your hands, and even your feet before getting into bed.
However, I don't think twice about putting X's food and such on a table that probably hasn't been wiped clean while out to eat.
And when he was using a pacifier and it fell to the ground...I would just quickly dust it off and give it back to him.
He is totally fine!

Out to eat
Speaking of eating at a restaurant, I usually sit on the opposite side of the table from X.
Luckily, he chooses to sit by Mic every single time.
Bonus for me because I get to eat my food while it is still warm! lol!

I am sure I could go on and on, but I will cut it off there :)
What are some of your Momfessional confessions or moments?
