How We: Mom Fail & Live


Hi Friends, Happy Hump Day!

It is Spring Break this week for my kids, so talk about perfect timing to talk about my mom fails and living to tell about it. HA!  I am linking up with Mix and Match Mama  and A Little Bit of Everything to talk about our Mom Fails.  Feel Free to link up to or even comment about your mom fails and living to talk about it.

I feel like as a Mom, we put a lot of guilt on ourselves because we just want the best for our kids.  In that same breath, though there are days, that I need a glass of wine because OMG that day was R.O.U.G.H!

Usually, I can go to the grocery store without all of the kids or just one of them.  However, I didn’t realize we were out of a few things, which meant taking all the kids to the grocery store.  YIKES! You can believe when that happens, my grocery bill triples with things they want.  Now, I am mostly a hard no kind of person, but for some reason, its like a mad dash, Yes, Yes, Yes to everything, which then leads to me thinking, well crap, now I just broke my rule of hard No’s to them wanting things.

So to combat this Mom Fail, I have started making them do things for whatever item they want.  I limit it to one item per kid and they have to dance in the aisle, do jumping jacks, hop on one foot etc.  #willworkforfood

I at least ease my mom fail guilt, they get exercise and understand they have to work for what they want #amen.
