Guilty as charged

I got this idea from Jana, the Meanest Mom. It might be the easiest list in the world EVER. Leave a comment if you are brave enough to post your own!

1. I eat my kids Halloween/Easter/Christmas candy when they aren't looking. They never notice.

2. Because I am lazy, I never bundle the kids up and send them out to play in the winter. Instead, I tell them it's "just too cold out today!"

3. After admiring "artwork" for a day or so, I bury it in the garbage can when the artist isn't looking.

4. When my daughter asks me to sing her a lullaby, sometimes I fake a sore throat.

5. I'm not really constipated. I just want to be alone, reading in the bathroom for as long as I can get away with it.

6. I tossed out all the Terror's Valentine cards. First, of course, I peeled the candy off of them. And I ate the candy myself.

7. Sometimes I lie in bed and try to remember why it seemed so crucial to have kids.

8. I would love to be a stay-at-home mom.....if both kids were in school.

9. I hide my son's favourite clothes when he gets obsessed with wearing them out-of-season.

10. I never, ever, ever eat breakfast with my kids. They just annoy me too much at that hour of the day.

Yeah, I don't know if I'm as brave as you or Jana, but good for you! ;)
Umm, #2 is not fair: it actually IS too cold where you live!
#5: Amen, sister!
and #10: I hear you. I'm verging on forbidding The Boy from talking to me until I have a coffee in the morning.

I let my son eat in front of the TV so I can get things done around the house and don't need to sit down with him. I feel a little bad about that one, I call it "a picnic".

Ha! I LOVE this. I could so do this. Except I'm supposed to be, you know, some sort of child-caring paragon, and I'm a little afraid of the fallout. But it sure could be fun. Hee.

You're suggesting there are parents who HAVEN'T done #1, 2, 3, and 7, at least once in a while? And if you have a child who's obsessed with their bathing suit in February, you're a fool if you haven't done #9.
