Show and Tell Tuesday: Momfessional Moments

Hey friends! Today, I'm linking up with Andrea- over at Momfessionals to share my "Momfessional Moments." And oh boy- I have a bunch but here are just a few for your reading pleasure. 

The Animal Book
I LOVE reading with my kiddos. Reading before bed has been a part of the night time routine since they were babies. Reading is such an important part of my life that I knew when I had kids, I wanted to pass that down to them. Each night, the girls get to pick a book out (sometimes more =) ) and Saidey has been picking THE SAME BOOK OUT FOR MONTHS. And it doesn't even have words. It's just pictures. And she points and we exclaim, "Koala!" UGH... I've "accidentally" hidden it under her bed so she couldn't find it and we've had to read another one. Or I've skipped several pages. But she always catches on. #quicklearner, that one! Sorry Saidey! 

The infamous animal book....

Did I mention it was a gift for WM in 1991?

Sophia loves art. She puts one mark on a paper and declares it art and it gets sent home in her backpack. I mean, who am I to say what is and what isn't artwork? But the girl brings home at least 2-5 papers of "art" each day. Needless to say, I will stealthily and ninja like creep to the garbage and stuff the papers all the way down to the bottom. One time, I didn't do this- and what a mistake that was! Sophia was all like, "Mooooom, why did you throw my artwork away?!" And I was all, "Oh no! I did???? I'm SOOOO sorry, it must have gotten mixed up by mistake." While inside I'm all, "DANGIT, I didn't push it far enough down!" 

Get dirty to stay clean
Saidey eats off the floor. She runs out of the bathroom like a wild woman without washing her hands sometimes (cringe) and I sometimes don't catch it. (or I'm too tired to chase after her) We used the shopping cart cover thing one time before it got stuffed in the trunk. I don't remember the last time I sanitized toys.
I say it's all about building up the immune system! That's my excuse anyway. 

School work
Sophia doesn't get a lot of "homework" sent home. She gets "activities" that extend the work she is doing while in school. Great. But we get home at 5, sometimes 5:30 and then it's supper and bedtime routines start. Squeezing in time to work on handwriting, math, and reading is so. hard. And sometimes it just doesn't get done. And I know those of you with older kiddos probably don't have much pity for me. But homework is hard, y'all! 

I've given Saidey a plate with just a dollop of ketchup on it because she is crying for ketchup. Even though nothing on her plate goes with it. And I know she is just going to stick her finger in it and lick it off. And when she asks for more, I oblige because screaming.

Car problems
Ok guys. I like to think of myself as a pretty organized, clean person. But please don't look in my car. Oh, for the love, please don't look in my car. From Cheerios on the floor, old sippy cups with who knows what in them, to shoes, hair things and mittens/hats, it's a bomb of all kid things. 

So, there you have it, my Momfessional Moments. Please tell me I'm not the only one and share your moments below! 

Happy Tuesday!
