Show and Tell Tuesday: Momfessional Moments

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

Today I'm linking up with Andrea for Show and Tell Tuesday.

Today's topic:  Momfessional Moments

1.   Christian and I went out to dinner for our anniversary in December and when I went to get dressed I debated about wearing heels.  I dug them off of the back of my shelf and instead of black, they were grey.   I had to actually blow a layer of dust off of the entire shoe.   Momma needs to get out a little more often when there's dust on your heels.

2. One night at bedtime Carter sang, "Nationwide is on your side."  He also knows about Sparkle paper towels and says he needs the "Shower Wow" shower head that changes colors.  Too much tv, perhaps?  I blame Sprout and Nick Jr. for putting commercials on a kids channel.

3. One particularly tiring day I was talking to Christian on speaker phone and said "I need a ......" and Carter piped in with "BREAK!"  I guess he's heard that one too! (better than drink though, right!?)

4. I rarely cook a complete dinner for my family.  I'm super lucky that my sister owns a food business and I get all prepared dinners and all I have to do is put them in the oven, or saute or put them in the slow cooker.  If you're in the Philly area will be your new best friend.  And so will my sister, her meals are the best!  I should mention that I HATE touching raw meat and because of her meals I rarely do!

5.  Whenever we pass a Starbucks Carter shouts out, "There's your favorite place, mom!" and he can recite my order,  "Grande iced coffee with 2 pumps of hazelnut and a little bit of cream."

6. Carter's two main food groups are 1. chicken and 2. pizza.  We thought it was a big win recently when he ate a grilled cheese.  He calls the weekend days- junk food days, because he's allowed to have bacon and pepperoni.   We also bribe him to try new foods with a matchbox car and that only mildly works.  In college one of my friends' boyfriends was the pickiest eater and ate like a toddler and I'm terrified that Carter will turn out like that!

and this one I'm pretty sure is on everyone's list, but I might as well include it------

7.  Whenever anyone is coming over it's a whirlwind of frenzy trying to clean up the house!  One day I was just cleaning up (not because anyone was coming over) and telling Carter to help and he replied, "Why?  Who's coming over?"  (insert monkey covering face emoji)

That was fun and I'm sure I have many more momfessional moments but we'll leave it with those!  Thanks for reading and I'd love to hear your's too!


  1. So jealous of your meals! I wish we lived closer as I'd be ALL about that option!

  2. All my heals are dusty too! So dusty! I finally started investing is some really fancy flats, ha!

  3. Carter reminds me of myself my diet consists of pizza and chicken, I am so fussy! Weekends are definitely junk food days around these parts too.

  4. My little one could live off of chicken and pizza, too. He eats anything and everything, but those are his FAVORITES. Love that he has your Starbucks order memorized! :)

  5. These cracked me up! We all have these moments!

  6. Oh my gosh, I can relate to so many of these!! It's amazing what these kiddos pick up, when you don't even realize it! Cam is dying for one of those shower heads that change color, and he doesn't even like showers! I am in the same boat with is diet...I am afraid that he will grow up eating only pb sandwiches, waffles and cheeseburgers. He won't try ANYTHING new unless we tell him it's something different!

    1. How funny that you know about the shower wow too! There must be subliminal messages in those commercials because he is just mesmorized by it!

  7. Wait, Carter is the best!!! Haha I love that he knows your Starbucks order. My kids will be able to do that one day!! And the fact that you had to actually dust off your shoes cracks me up!


I love to read your thoughts! Thanks for your comment!
