    BEST OF CONFESSIONS CHOSEN BY YOUR CONFESSIONAL MANAGERS

    254541-  The real reason I've been making a huge deal about getting a family portrait done this year is that I've just lost a bunch of weight and I want to record it. AND I want to flaunt my new skinny jeans.

    253353- Anyone who thinks parenthood isn't a contact sport, has never raised a toddler.

    253360- I have been spit on, smacked around, kicked until I was bruised, my hair pulled out. I need to come forward and speak out. I, too, am a victim of toddler abuse.

    253647- I learned tonight that my parents' "usual bet" involves my mom running around the house (literally AROUND the house - outside) completely naked. I'm embarrassed, traumatized, and totally impressed simultaneously.

    252804- Tonight dh got frisky and brought a can of whipped cream to bed. As soon as he squirted it our almost 2 y.o. ds sat straight up in bed in the adjoining room and squealed "Me, wip kweem, me, wip kweem!"

    253724- How I know I'm a mom; I find myself pouring orange juice for ds3 while on the toilet with crazy upset stomach.

    253537- The big highlight of our anniversary this year was the awesome 3 hour nap H, dd1month, and I had while dd1 sat quietly watching tv in her playpen.

    253223- DF was wondering why the water bill had gone up....truth is I've started showering more - LOL
     
    253202- I don't actually dust my ceiling fans. I just turn them on high/chop your mutha fuckin' head off and let the dust fly down. I then semi-promptly vacuum.
     
    253058- My dd3 asked me what I wanted to put on my list for Santa. I told her all I wanted was a kiss from her. Her response was "what do you really want, Mommy? How about we put down wine?" I hope I've been good this year.

    Um, I love all things Disney. I get more excited to see their new releases and the vault releases than my kids do. 90% of the Disney movies we own came out before 2000....lol

    @gingersnap @katz_meow I didn't take it as Disney World. I took it as Disney, like has no kids and gets deliriously happy to go see a new Disney movie in the theater, 7 times, and collects paraphernalia Disney liker...

    I've tried the turn the fans on high trick...doesn't work. Mine just remain dirty until I can talk someone taller than me into cleaning them...

    I do think  a "no move" switch on them would be great so you can vacuum without fighting the spin!

    I loved the shower one! I hear ya sista! More showers equal a higher water bill, my solution shower with the hubby and/or kids! Lol

    @katz_meow, if it does, then I guess I'll be sporting that badge, too. I rented Brave at a Redbox one day and neither kiddo wanted to watch with me. I watched that shit all by myself...after they were in bed. LOL

    And Toy Story 3 makes me cry big ugly tears and snot and everything...gah! So does the Lion King. Get's me every time.

    @blessie oh, you mean my fathers wife? I didn't go to Disney world until I was 16, and I was there for their WEDDING.

    This woman has no kids, has no interest in raising kids, but goes to Disney world or on a Disney cruise 2-3 times a YEAR. And she GOT MARRIED THERE. My siblings and I were there for 2 days before the wedding, then we all flew home after the reception so they could start their Honeymoon that night.. they got on a Disney cruise ship for 4 days, then spent another week in Disney world. Yeah, she has boxes and boxes of memorabilia.. she bought displays from closing Disney Stores, they're in my basement.

    @Blessie and @Gingersnap She's a real winner lmfao. Thankfully, she seems to just like having a husband, not a whole family. So when he's hanging out with us she goes and does other things. We really only have to see her on Christmas now..

    @ChristyJ wtf do you *mean* the Swiffer Fan Sweep???? I have to do that like 100 times AND THEN put Pledge on a rag and actually *wipe down* the blades (it's ridiculous. I'm turning them on backwards on chop your head off speed and see what happens.)!!! Maybe I just have a gross dusty hairy house. :((

    @KrabbyKay, maybe you have more humidity in your house.  We will have to start running the humidfier soon as it will get much drier in here and the boys' sensitive skin is showing signs of drying out already.  It is really dry in our house for some reason, even though Kentucky is relatively humid.

    Aww....that makes me sad. I love Disney and Pixar. When my kids lost interest, I would borrow little kids to take to the movies. I figured i was justified after sitting through the original power rangers movie umpteen million times. And the Pokemon movie like 5 times There's a lot of adult humor in the Pixar and Disney movies the kids dont get.

    I love Disney. My grandpa helped build WDW here in FL so I have pictures of me w/ some of the characters before the park even opened. I have so many memories there....esp riding Dumbo with my grandma, I can't see it without tearing up now, I miss her so much. I love going with the kids, but I love going with my DH too!

    I am a Disney nut. My BF never went till we were together and he became a little kid again - we hit all four parks in one day and we didn't have any of our kids with us. We've gone back alone since then as well as with the kids. We are going again in February with kids this time (only mine though - his x won't let his kids go because SHE can't go) and are already looking at another trip after that. I'm lucky he is just as Disney crazy as I am. I'd collect memorbilia if I could afford it but the stuff I like is out of my price range; I have a bunch of Disney kitchenware.

    My sister thinks I am crazy but she doesn't really like any amusement parks.
