Hump Day Mommy Confessions

I have a crush on Alan Rickman that even I can’t explain. Don’t ask me to try. I don’t know what it is about him. Maybe it’s the accent. Maybe it’s the dark hair. Maybe it’s the cape.


I just love him to pieces.

I try so hard to not judge other mothers but when I see one giving her toddler soda or sweet tea in their bottle it’s all I can do to just bite my lip and keep it moving. 

I love doing yoga but it gives me the farts. Downward dog is not my friend, nor would it be yours if you were right behind me. 

I’m so bad at math that most days, I have no idea how old I am. 


Just ask Michael. He is forever correcting me every time I think I’m still 37.

When I see a pregnant woman smoking or people smoking in their vehicle with kids, I want to knock them the ef out. 

I get {irrational} anger when I hear people seriously compare their pets as the same thing as having kids. 

Even now just typing that got me a little worked up. I can’t y’all, I just can’t…

I hate when mothers keep referring to their kids as “X months old” past the age of two. I know it shouldn’t, but it makes me view them as elitist, pretentious you-know-whats. 

I’m pretty sure I just lost half of my readership.

Oh well. 

Sometimes while I'm preparing dinner, I pretend it took longer than expected so I can stay in the kitchen all alone with my glass of wine while Michael entertains Chickie.

Love you, sweetie. Mean it. 

What do you have to confess this week?
