My Mummy Confessions...

I've now done 9 months of long, hard Mummyhood and it's time to make a few confessions....

There are certain things I do that I'm not proud of, and that I'd rather Jon didn't know about, I have my little secrets and my coping mechanisms....

I'm sharing them with you but Ssshhh!...We don't want them getting out.

1. Sometimes I go to the bathroom and sit on the toilet when I don't even need to go....But it's quiet in there.  So quiet. I can sit down and I can actually hear my own thoughts for a moment.
God I love the bathroom.

2. Since having a baby I have become THAT friend who never texts back. The "I'm too busy, I have a child" friend who you know has read your message....you can see the little tick saying I've viewed it....But there'll be no response for at least 2 days and then i'll swear I didn't get it.

Confession: I got it - but there's only room in my head for a certain amount of things these days, and messages to reply to tend to fall out of my mind pretty quickly :/

3. Sometimes...when its 9pm and Tyne fills his nappy for the third time in the space of an hour...and I know Daddy will be home at 9.05...I pretend I can't smell it. I've perfected my "Oh, is he dirty?! I didn't smell a thing" face.

4. I've also become a regular winner at the nightly "Who can pretend to sleep through the baby crying the longest" challenge - you know the one....YOU both know you're both awake, The Baby knows you're both awake...but it's all about who's going to give in first and get up....who can fake snore the loudest, who can feign those sleepy twitches with the most conviction....Finally, those drama classes have paid off!

5. Of course there are lots of perks to having a baby...one of the major ones is that you have a ready made excuse to get out of anything you don't want to do.
Don't fancy that gathering at your annoying workmate's house? Damn, you can't get a babysitter!
Running late for an appointment? Oops, the baby isn't very well....you're gonna need to reschedule.

I'm hoping that I'm not alone in these little admissions....surely we all have our little Mummy secrets?

So come on,share with me....what are your Mummy Confessions!?
