20 Crappy Mum Confessions

20 Crappy Mum Confessions

We are all trying to do our best, and be the best mothers we can be. But sometimes, it’s just about getting to the end of the day alive – right?! So here are some of my not-so-perfect mum confessions… I’m sure you can secretly relate to a few! (Or I’m just a really crappy mum)

1. Selfish Mum Confessions

I didn’t take my daughter to her swimming lesson because it was cold and I didn’t want to get in the pool myself.

2. Running Away To Maccas

Sometimes I fantasise about getting in my car and running away – or at least going to get McNuggets.

3. What Poo?

I smelt poo, but I waited till my husband noticed it so I didn’t have to change it.

4. Laziness

I feed the baby packet puree because I didn’t have time/couldn’t be bothered making it.

5. Forcing Sleep

I gave my toddler Phenergan on the plane so she would sleep the whole flight (it was awesome).

6. Spew Schmew

I leave the house with spew on my shoulders because I figure it’s just going to get spewed on again anyway.

7. Daycare Always Wins

I dropped my toddler off at daycare without breakfast because I was late for work and I knew they would feed her.

8. Rushing Doesn’t Always Win

I accidentally clipped my babies finger when cutting her nails and made it bleed (I was pretty upset about this one).

9. Little White Lies

I told my daughter her annoying phone toy was broken when really I just removed the batteries.

10. Forcing Naps

I force the kids to take a nap at midday so I can watch Ellen in peace.

11. Lazy Cooking

I fed my kid’s baked beans for dinner because there was nothing ‘easy’ in the house to cook.

12. Skipping Pages

I skip pages in the book when reading to my kids at bedtime.

13. Kids Are The Best Excuse

I use my kids to get out of social engagements all the time.“Sorry babe, the babies really sick so we’re gonna stay home.”

14. Forgetfulness

I claim my forgetfulness is because I had a shit night sleep, but really my kids slept through, I just suck at remembering things.

15. It Never Happened

I put the baby down crying, then walked out of the room and shut the door to save my sanity.

16. Anything To Keep The Peace

I let my toddler eat from the bag of grapes while we’re shopping just to keep her quiet.

17. Please Hubby?

I claimed the kids were high maintenance and crying all day just so I didn’t have to cook dinner.

18. MIL’s Are The Best

I ask my MIL to ‘watch the kids for an hour’ but then come back in three.

19. Driveway Time

When I pull up in the driveway, I sit in the car for ages with the kids strapped in just so I can reply to texts/make phone calls/Snapchat/check Instagram.

20. Wine Allowance

I have a ‘wine allowance’ in our weekly shopping budget.
