Confession Wednesday 12/9

Bless me bloggy friends.  It is confession Wednesday.  A day that was inspired by some of you out there in bloggy world.  Well, that, and the fact that as a kid, confession at catholic school was always on a Wednesday so that you could go to the school mass on Thursday and be pure. ( You know, because there are so many mortal sins that a 2nd grader needs to confess.)  

Anyways . . .

Onto my purging . . .

I confess that even though I embarrass my daughter, I still pluck my eyebrows while I wait for her in the school pick up line. Yes, while the line of mini vans sit and wait for the kiddies, I happily pluck away!  I do this because a) I do not want to look like Bert from Sesame Street.  A unibrow is just not pretty.  and b) The only place that I can see those pesky stray hairs is in my rearview mirror.   I am sure that other moms have seen me do this, and I only hope that they consider using their rearview mirror for vanity too.  I just love to make the world a prettier place.  Don't you?!

Speaking of vanity, apparently I lack any vanity whatsoever in the mornings, because I confess that I have walked my son into his preschool classroom this week wearing my pajama bottoms and my winter coat.  No excuses.  We weren't running late.  I just didn't want to get out of my nice comfy jammies.  As a former Florida girl, winter time weather officially stinks, and I will take any little bit of comfort that I can get.  

I confess that one morning at preschool drop off, I also wore my slippers.  The really sad part about that is that I didn't even realize it until about an hour later at home.  I was stripping down to take a shower and realized my offense when I kicked them off in the bathroom.  

I confess that I did not feel the least bit guilty about the slippers.

I confess that I don't want to hear anymore about Tiger Woods.  He is a famous golfer.  He cheated on his wife.  While I think that he is lower than low for his digressions, I am sick to death to hear about it daily on the news.  Really?!?  Is this news?!?  

I confess that while I am Tiger-ed out, I laughed out loud at the SNL skit about him.  If you haven't seen it . . . it's worth a view. 

I confess that I love Christmas time and all of its little traditions.  Today we had homemade hot cocoa and warm brownies.  Ummm!  Chocolate and warmth and laughing kiddies is just the best!

I confess that I probably won't think this way at 8:30 tonight when Ethan is still awake from his sugar and caffeine overdose.


Much better.

Absolution anyone??


  1. Be glad you are still plucking eyebrows and not white whiskers on your chin. I hate getting old.

  2. I don't think you're the only one wearing pj bottoms during drop off. At least you aren't still wearing them at pick up!


I love, love, love to read your comments!
