shh it’s a secret

25 Oct

I decided to jump on the carousel for this week’s blog carnival again. the topic is parenting secrets. you know you have some…

1) i let hook watch too much tv. it almost seems like he is making up for all the years he didn’t watch any. i make a concerted effort to monitor how much screen time he has but with the wigglers clamoring for attention it is sometimes easier to just let him keep watching.

2) the babies don’t get bathed every day. or often even every other day. usually 2-3 times a week. i like giving them baths but with two of them it stresses me out. and the truth is they are just going to get dirty again the next time they eat. i can keep justifying this if you like…






3) i read books and play games on my while breastfeeding. for late night feeds it keeps me awake so it seems more justified. sometimes I feel like I should be paying more attention to the babies while they feed but seriously who can stare at the side of someone’s head for hours and hours (cumulative of course). then i worry that radioactive waves are melting their brains…

    1. we don’t have a tv, but we do have youtube…. let’s just say the bean probably wasn’t born knowing all those ernie songs. let alone the ones from glee.

    2. the bean did get bathed every day for a while. now that he actually gets dirty…once a week is plenty. that’s what god made wipes for.

    3. zomg, i don’t even feel guilty about that anymore. there is no WAY the bean would have survived the first few months without sugar’s ipod. what, was i really supposed to spend 13 hours a day staring adoringly at his head? i mean, on top of all the non-nursing time i was supposed to spend that way?
