    Sad…I can check a few of these off my list already!

  3. Loved this!!!! And I’m going to say that I’ve committed every single one of these! 🙂 Cause I’m Super Mom like that. 🙂

  4. “allowed your child to sit on your lap as you go potty” do moms really do this? I can’t and have never even thought about it. Just wondering. 🙂

    Thanks for these reminders that we all struggle at times to be a “great” mom. Glad you’re blogging too 🙂

    i knew my mom friends would love this… and Jamie absolutely about the child on your lap to potty although I only did this when I had a baby. I usually had two little ones that took up the double stroller and then the baby (Camden) in a carrier that I had strapped on me. 🙂 I then would be telling Braden who was 4 and was holding on to the stroller to please not touch anything in the public restroom! I can also zip my pant zipper with one hand! Wow am i cool?!

    This is so funny, b/c I’m so guilty of alot of them! Including the potty one, I had to hold my youngest on my lap in a public restroom too. Soooo nerve racking! Thanks for the laughs!

    i love this. not a mom yet, but some great “insight” into what the future holds…..thanks for the extra dose of birth control for the day!

    I love it. The potty thing, when you have a litte one that gets up before the crack of dawn ill, you will put them on your lap just to keep them from waking the other kids up. LOL I have to say I am also guilty of most these.
