Dirty Lil Secrets of a Mom of Three: Part 3

Oct 25 2010 - 11:55am

All moms have secrets, but do mothers of multiple children have more? Once a woman has a few kids, she knows the perfect mother doesn't exist [1] and that enables her to improvise in lots of different situations. As long as the kids are happy — right? I've divulged the shortcuts I've taken [2], and now I'm adding a few more to the list. Set yourself free by confessing your secret in the comments section.

When we run out of clean towels...

I dip into the stack of receiving blankets. They've got to be good for something since baby outgrew them — right?

I spend weeks, even months, planning holiday...

content for this site and then I run and buy my children's gifts at the last minute. I had to express their Halloween costumes so they get here on time!

I tell my husband...

that I'm chaperoning a field trip or picking up friends so he cleans his junk out of the car. Otherwise, it would never get done.

Every once in a while...

my baby falls asleep early and wakes up late — right when we are making a mad dash to get the bigger kids to school — so we let him stay in the same outfit.

Our washing machine broke...

and I haven't had time to buy a new one so my amazing mother has been laundering our stuff for us. Flashback to college days only now I have five times the soiled clothes!
