"confessions of a naughty mama"

Are you a naughty mama?  I know we’re all grown-up and supposed to be sensible and responsible all the time.  But sometimes do you do naughty things?  I do and I just can’t help myself.  Here are 5 things that I do that I probably shouldn’t:

1.  I often sometimes hide from Anya in the kitchen and eat chocolate secretly.  And if I run out of my chocolate, I start eating Anya’s after she’s gone to bed.  When she discovers that her chocolate has nearly disappeared, I blame daddy.

2.  I make up crazy stuff about things like what not eating your veggies or sucking your thumb can do to you.  I once showed Anya a completely toothless old man and convinced her that is how she would become if she didn’t stop sucking her thumb.

3.  I’m not big on swearing except for saying ‘shit’ way too much in front of Anya.  The other day she asked me “Mama, why do you keep saying shits?!”  I gave her a chocolate biscuit to distract her (after I had earlier told her there would be no biscuits today) .

4.  I tell little lies.  All the time.  Things like I don’t know how that (noisy) toy disappeared overnight.  Maybe you lost it somewhere.  That is the most beautiful painting I have ever seen (sorry Picasso!).  I will tell your teacher if you don’t brush your teeth.  The list goes on…

5.  When I’m tired, to shorten the bedtime story routine, I skip lines from the book I’m reading to her.  It used to be pages but she’s cottoned on to that little trick!

What do you do?  I’d love to hear about your naughty habits because I’m seriously hoping that I’m not the only naughty mama out there!
