I Must Confess....

Before I was a mom, I had THE LIST....you know, the list of things that you will NEVER do as a mom??? I swore my kids would would never know what Diet Coke was (Ooops....too late) or will NEVER know what's inside those "Golden Arches" (Well, that secret is out) and most of all I would never, I repeat NEVER be one of those moms that let their kids run freely through the Gateway fountains and on top of that, get their clothes completely soaked (for some reason it's always been a pet peeve of mine)!! Well folks....I've eaten my own words!!!Mia had such a ball! What was I ever thinking?

Jen said...

I didn't even have a list because I knew I would NEVER stick to it. Heck sometimes cookies, chips and a Capri Sun are the hotest things around for dinner. haha

So good when another mom joins us on the dark side! After awhile, it's just survival. Love this post!

That's so awesome! I love that you are enjoying every minute and not caring about the little non important things!!!

That is too funny! I too had many list and although I am not mother I do let my stepson do things I swore I'd never let my kids do. Oops! Never say never! ;)

Sometimes you just have to let them enjoy themselves huh. I to have those pet peeves and have finally just said oh whatever and let her do it. Mia looked like she loved every second of it and that's all that matters. Its fun to see how its those tiny things they get the biggest kick out of.

I probably started it all with the first cheeto, huh!? I'm sorry, you can blame me for being a bad influence. I think you're a great mom and Mia looks better soaking wet. I've seen her at Seven Peaks!

K.. how could you ever resist that face?! Don't you love the "what we said WE would never do" thoughts... and Marcae, not even joking, you are so freaking freaking FAST!!! 1:37?! What the crap are you doing? Serious? I would die to have that time? Are you doing crossfit? Your arms are so buff!! I am in love with the buff fast women and I need to know her secret cause I too am totally obsessed and hooked and stress- relieved!My next one is the trails in September and 1:40 would suit me fine...but give a sister some secrets

Debra and Ryan said...

I have a list too!! Mine does not include the fountains at gateway. I think that looks FUN! I have been tempted to do it myself on a hot day.

It's amazing all the things I said I wouldn't do that I don't fight with Stockton. You live and learn I guess--or at least choose your battles.

Mar, That's totally funny. I agree for some reason the Gateway water thing bugs me also. I am sure I will let TRITON do it. Love ya, Lacie
