Top Ten Reasons Why I’m a Bad Mom {Guest Post}

10. Phoenix is pretty much potty trained, but some days I’m really lazy and I’ll stick him in a pull-up.

9. I often keep Phoenix up with me until 10 PM because then that means we can sleep until 8:30/9.

8. Ok fine. I’ll stop lying…sometimes Phoenix has stayed up until mid-night.

7. Ok shut up! There was this one time we picked Shawn up from airport and went to a dinner….at 1 AM.

6. Ice cream for breakfast? Of course. More time to burn it off.

5. Phoenix loses his natural mind when I try to “groom” him so the amount of earwax in his ears could stock an entire Yankee’s Candle for a year (and still have some left over)

4. Hide a book under the pillow and distract him with a tiny train so I can finish online shopping? You know it.

3. “Mrs. Campbell- How much TV does your 2.5 year old son watch?” “Do you have a calculator?”

2. I’ve spent the last 6 months really trying to get rid of the pacifer but sometimes when I’m trying to “work” (play on the internets) I give in and hand him, not one but THREE just to shut him up calm him down.

1.Phoenix hurt his leg last week and exclaimed “F*ck b*tch my leg hurts!”. Guess I owe the cursing jar a years wages huh?
