I Confess : I Lock Myself in My Pantry


I confess... There are days I want to lock my children in a closet.

I confess... I have never locked my children in a closet.  But I have locked myself in my pantry.  The garage.  Bathroom.  And my closet.

I confess... I have more patience for other peoples children and slim to none for my own.

I confess... There are times I curse, when I know I shouldn't, to emphasis the point I'm trying to get across.

I confess... When I was a kid I swore I wouldn't be so hard on my children as my parents were on me.

I confess... That hasn't worked out so well.

I confess... Our pantry is my favorite place to hide. Case in point...

I confess... My oldest son is behind in his 2nd grade learning and I feel it's my fault and I'm failing him as a parent.

I confess... I am notorious for complaining about my children climbing into my bed, but there are nights when they don't climb in that I go and get them.

I confess... I was a much better mother before I actually had my children.

I confess... Even though there are days all I do is scream and doubt myself as a mother, I wouldn't trade it for the world!

Happy Friday! What do you need to confess this week? Link up HERE!


  1. I'm pretty sure if I had a pantry and it looked like yours I'd be hiding in there too! LOL!

    I'm also pretty sure that curse words are good for emphasis. Maybe not so much when they're able to repeat it tho. lol

  2. I think it is common to feel the way you do from time to time.

    BTW... I hide in the bathroom. LOL

    I hope you have a good weekend.

  3. motherhood has a lot of peaks and valleys but the good far outweighs the bad right?

    thanks for confessing. very funny stuff. sorry i am slow. I had a busy HAPPY weekend with my family, life is sweet, gotta live it!
