Confessions Of A Millennial Mom Part 2

I received so much positive feedback from the first Confessions of a Millennial Mom post (read here), that I made a part 2. This is a collab post with fellow millennial mom bloggers who understand the struggle all too well. Feel free to leave a comment with your mom confessions down below.

Confessions of a millennial mom

Confession #1: I can’t iron. Three words, wrinkle reducing spray.

Confession #2: I still can’t cook.

Confession #3: My three year old tried to cast a spell to make me nicer . . . “Bippity boppity boo, make mommy nicer.” All because she wanted candy after breakfast.

Confession #4: When my girls were a bit younger, I would sometimes tell them that it’s already bedtime (when it was like at least an hour before) just so I could put my feet up. Now, they can tell time. -Maayan@ Strudel blog
Confession #5: According to my six year old, she knows who my next husband will be. I’ll tell y’all, when she tells me.

Confession #6: Speaking of, I totally use my girls as little wingwomen.

Confession #7: My husband is a pilot, so he’s gone at least 4 days a week. That means, my son and I eat out at least 4 nights a week! No cooking when daddy’s gone! – Kisha@TheKishaProject

Confession #8: I made my girls learn the dance to New Edition’s If It Isn’t Love.

Confession #9: I try to order my favorite cookies when the kids go to sleep, so I don’t have to share. I know that is super selfish, but mama needs something of her own. – Brigette@ByBrigetteDanielle

Confession #10: As a mom, I”m somewhere between Claire Huxtable and Lorelei Gilmore. Definitely leaning more towards Lorelei.

Confession #11: Leggings are pants! Don’t argue . . .

Confession #12: My daughter never wears matching socks, and neither do I. Who has time for that?- Dawne@Lifewithzoewillow

Confession #13: I saved a bunch of money on my utility bill, by telling the girls that sleeping with the tv on at night will stunt their growth.

Confession#14: Cereal is a real meal, let’s argue.

Confession #15: When I don’t want my kids to do/touch something, I tell them it could kill them and then make up a reasoning to support it. It was working great until my four year old told a pre-school friend if he touched that bin it could kill him. Then gave him reasoning to support it. -Tifanee@CoinsandBabble

Confession #16: Ratchet is still a part of my girl’s vocabulary.

Confession #17: My three year old repeats EVERYTHING she hears. Sometimes, I use that to my advantage.

Confession #18: My daughter’s favorite pastry is a chocolate croissant, she just doesn’t know there’s chocolate in it , I eat that part. -Dawne@Lifewithzoewillow

Confession #19: I don’t let my kids win on game night. What’s the fun in that?

Confession #20: I spend way too much time on my phone. I’ll tell myself that I’m spending too much time on it, but I’ll give myself 30 more mins. Those 30 minutes usually turn into an hour. -Jasmine@JasmineTiara

Confession #21: My six year old thinks #45’s name is Donald Duck. Might as well be.

Confession #22: When I’ve had enough with a loud toy, I tell my daughter it’s tired and we tuck it in to go to bed. -Dawne@Lifewithzoewillow

Confession #23: Suri has helped with homework more times than I can count.

Confession #24: The girls “do it for the gram” at least four times a week. Yes, i’m THAT mom.

Confession #25: I once dropped the stroller down a flight of stairs (my daughter was strapped into it at the time). My daughter eventually stopped crying. and I learned my lesson. Strollers have brakes for a reason! #justusethebrake-

Confession #26: I wear pajamas 20 hours a day, at least 5 days a week.

Confession #27: Sometimes my 3 year old and I eat Doritos for breakfast because I don’t have the energy to cook, nor the willpower to fight with him. -Lisa@Meandmymomfriends

Confession #28: My kids won’t play UNO with me.

Confession #29: I asked my six year old who President Obama was and she told me “The man with the grey hair.” Girl, what??

Confession #30: It’s a bit disappointing when you realize all the other moms at play group, the park, etc are pushing 40. There’s nothing wrong with becoming a mom later in life but older moms don’t get it. Becoming a mom at the end of your 30’s is very different than becoming a mom in your early 20’s. There’s a huge focus on “finding your tribe” when it comes to motherhood these days. Being a mom can be isolating and I think that’s even more true for young moms. – Gillian@GillianWatts

 Being a mom is the best job you can possibly have, but it’s tough. With all of the pressures to be perfect, it feels great to let people know what REALLY happens behind the scenes.

    Talk about HONESTY lol. It was still dark and rainy at 7:00 this morning when my twins decided to open their eyes. I had already been awake for over an hour, got my daughter off to preschool (after getting no sleep because the kids stayed up ALL NIGHT) .. I told my twins it was still nighttime, and we went back to bed until 9. Ayeeee! lol

    This post is great! I can definitely relate to many of these confessions. I’m guilty of being on my phone too much during the day, especially as a blogger. It is amazing how quickly the minutes pass by! I really need to figure out a way to take breaks from my phone during the day!

      My phone is in my hand majority of the day, so I can definitely relate lol

    YES! #11! Leggings are pants! I have explained this to my husband so many times. Sometimes they just NEED to be. High five on this list because I nodded my head and agreed all the way through it. 🙂
