Friday Confessional ~ Date Night and Dirty Girls

I Confess

Having kids that are good readers makes me really proud.  I am secretly thrilled when I find The Athlete staying up late to finish a chapter or two.

Having kids that tell me I shouldn't drink from a cup that says "Make your own damn dinner" does not make me proud.  I wish they couldn't read that.

Or my emails over my shoulder.

Or my text messages from my girlfriends.

I Confess

E and I are due for a date night.

Life is stressful right now and we just feel like worker bees, and housekeepers and check writers.

We need to drink some cocktails and stay up late talking about something besides our kids and the scheduling conflicts we have next week.

I Confess

There are some people in my life right now that I am not sure are worth it.

I am intensely loyal and hold tightly to people that have touched my heart.  But I am working a LOT harder lately on them being in my life than they are.  I'm not sure how much longer that can last. 

Even the idea of it makes me sad.

I Confess

My daughter and I are oil and water sometimes.  Or we could just be the same person in different packages.  I dunno.

She's developed a significant disdane for showering lately.  I don't quite get it since getting beautiful is her FAVORITE.THING.EVER. but I guess she doesn't make the connection that you gotta be clean, too.

Just in case I was wondering how she really felt about taking a shower this week, she wrote a letter.

And "I mene never in my hole live" have I been so damn afraid of a kindergartener.

HAPPY FRIDAY, Friends.  Go see Mamarazzi and Glamazon or more Friday confessionals.  They'll make your day.

Trust me the shower thing gets better and then you wonder if you will EVER and I mean EVER see your bathrooms (that's with two S's) again. I have 3 girls and one boy that until he left for college had us all beat!

On the friends issue you sound a lot like how I was... it is now my belief that some come and some go, a few stay forever,and that the memories are what you have. If it takes more away then it gives then maybe it's time.. Hard I know so here is a (((hug))) and I hope it gets better.

Have a great weekend!

Don't you just love having kids? I guess I'm lucky I have all boys, because I don't know that I could handle the "drama" that comes with girls. I'm sorry :(

Nick and I were just talking about how we need to get out of the house, out of town for a drive or something. Cabin fever is setting in.

Aly @ Analyze This said...

Hahaha! OMG! The note from your daughter ... HILARIOUS!!!!

Amy said...

Wait until your daughter is a teen, you won't be able to get her OUT of the bathroom!

Sara Richins said...

My little girl has yelled pretty much the same thing to me. Ahh, girls.

Emmy said...

Okay that letter is pretty dang funny. I remember going through a time where I would "shower" by getting in theater, getting wet and staying long enough to fool my mom that I actually cleaned myself.

Eric and I so need a date night too

That note cracks me up! It may not seem like it now, but it's just precious! She'll grow out of that stage, too. Trust me. Even my son has grown out of the "I'm not taking a bath!" stage. I hope life gets slower and you get a date night soon.

Jules said...

Love the note. She actually has awesome spelling for a kindergartner!

And date nights are a must....

Lourie said...

Wow your kindergartner wrote that? Awesome. I don't think my son is quite there yet. haha. He likes a bath. A shower he would not do.

I think me and hubs are waiting til Valentine's Day...or somewhere in there.

That letter is HILarious!! I love it. I mean, I hope she decides to take a shower, but in the mean time, that letter is a hoot. You should totes bring that out when she brings her first boyfriend home.

I love that my little boy is becoming such a great reader, but like you...he's starting to read things I would rather him not. Like he knows when we pass up SpongeBob on the television guide. great.

LOVED your confessions! HOpe you're having a wonderful weekend!

Amy said...

Oh how I envy you. I desperately want my children to be readers. How wonderful that they read, but I can also see how that could be a bit of a nuisance. :)

I love her letter to you. How funny.

Now go out on a date already!

Mamarazzi said...

LOVE the note...i am a little skeeerd too!

also, i hear ya on making more of an investment in relationships that others...there has to be a healthy balance of give a take or it just won't my opinion!

Rebecca said...

That note is so should be framed and hung up in your bathroom for posterity (ya know, after she's over this whole "I wanna be dirty thing.")

Go enjoy your date night...we're trying desperately to get one a month!

Tooje said...

That letter is hilarious!! LOL Frame it, please. She will really get a laugh out of it come her teenage years when she lives in the hot, steamy bathroom.
