I am a horrible Mother


I've been busted.

We got a babysitter the other night.  On the drive taking her back home I learned some new things about my children.

1.  They told her that I never cook and I always make them cook for themselves.

2.  I never let them eat enough and they go to bed hungry.

3.  I never grocery shop so they never have food to eat.


Really.

So to test my children on these newly found facts, I began to cook.

I made lemon pasta for lunch.  FOR LUNCH.  Everyone knows that lunch is about hot dogs and sandwiches not full on dishes.  That'll show 'um.

Kids:  Awww, Mom.  You ALWAYS make spaghetti.  Couldn't we have something else?

Hmmmm.... that seems to conflict with new fact #1

After lunch I packed them into the car and announced that we were going to the grocery store.

Kids:  Awwww Mom... you ALWAYS make us go to the grocery store.  Didn't we just go there like yesterday?

Hmmmm.... that seems to conflict with new fact #3

Then I made a nice big dinner including vegetables.

Kids:  Awwww Mom, I'm full.  Do I HAVE to eat my corn?

Hmmm....  that seems to conflict with new fact #2


Bottom line.  My kids will tell whoever whatever gets them the most attention at the time.  Of course that makes me a little nervous to see what they'll say the next time we have a babysitter.

Let's just say, I think I won this round.  HA!

Oh g/f I feel your pain! Those pesky kid units are always giving Moms a bad rap. It is a wonder when people meet us that they don't expect us to have one bulging eye, curlers in our hair and a drool bucket strapped around our necks.

That's hilarious! My daughter keeps telling everyone that I make her do all the chores in the house. She's 4. She puts away the silverware and she empties the small garbage once a week. Oh, and she has to clean her room. I'm such a slave driver.

This is why I never get a babysitter! The things they tell their teachers at church is enough to make me look bad!

LOVE it! Kids always have the best things to say to make you look stupid don't they!?!? I know Cam does!

LOL you totally one this round. I'd kill my kids for saying stuff like that. Oh wait- they probably already do I and I don't know about it.

Did the babysitter actually believe all the stuff your kids told her? I can't wait to hear what Addison tells people about me.

I am keeping a list of what my kids say so that when they have kids I can tell them what goes around comes around, turkeys!!! Your kids forgot to mention the great bike trip to the bakery the other day. You are awesome!

That is really funny. Now that you mention it, they have told me some crazy things about you....I probably shouldn't share them here. Just kidding.
