Re: FFFC!

  • I got to Gold thinking FFFC meant "Fun Fearless Female Confession" (like Cosmo magazine's column of the same name.

  • I find myself cringing and denying it when people say that dd looks a lot like me.  I realized why.... I don't want her to grow up to look like me because I don't really like the way I look.  I especially worry that she will have my big nose and get teased for being ugly like I did. :-(
  • I cringe when people tell me M looks like my MIL. She has gorgeous ice blue eyes but other than that I think she resembles Ozzy Osbourne back in the day when he bit the head off of that bat.She just has a crazy look about her. Thankfully, I just don't see the resemblance, but I still worry....
  • I lurk on 1st tri when I'm bored and want to tear my hair out at some of the brainless posts, even though I probably posted equally brainless stuff when I was pregnant with my first.

  • I think that asking for thoughts and prayers on a message board is stupid.  I would never pray and think about someone I don't know.  Do people really think that an internet stranger is actually going to pray for bumpie/nestie Jane Doe?  I, personally, find it weird.

    This makes me sad.  I'm sorry :(

  • DH and I talked about being done having kids but having a baby has been on my mind for the past 2 weeks.  I think its because of all the BFPs and some IRL friends finding out the sex of their baby.

    My husband is currently driving me crazy!  He usually travels for work but has been home for over 3 weeks.  When he doesn't travel he works from home.  

    I also can't keep from cheating on my diet and it is making me not like myself too much but I just can't stop myself from putting that bit of cheese or what ever in my mouth! 

    & I am secretly jealous that my DH has lost 40 lbs and has the drive to work out each day & I have NONE.

    So there are 3!

    While I too find it a little ridiculous when I see people ask for T&P over jobs or a new house, I actually do say a little prayer when I see posts for a child or a sick family member. It takes a second of my time and if it somehow does make a difference it can't hurt.

    I'll trade with you- my husband has been away for 2 weeks- he frequently travels too- and I miss him so much. He'll be home for a month and I'm really looking forward to that, plus it's great for our son to have him home.

    My FFFC is that if you keep your children out late at night because you're on vacation, I judge you. Toddlers should not be up and out at midnight!

  • I think I'm unintelligent and boring. If I think this about myself then it's no wonder that I don't have friends.

    My DH took a week of vacation last week and I thought I was going to go insane. I like having him home on weekends, but having him underfoot for nine days straight was WAY too much. We're a happier couple when one of us is out of the house on a regular basis.


  • I'm nowhere near as put together as most people in my real life believe.  I think I put on a good facade, but inside I am just a mess much of the time.  Sometimes I feel like I have a double life - the real me and the one I project to others, and only I know that they are not the same person...does that make any sense?  Anyway, it's exhausting.  Sad

  • I have another one.  Although DD isn't even 6 months old yet, I keep thinking about being pregnant again.  I loved both of my pregnancies, and I must be crazy because I love the newborn stage as well.  Now that DD is getting bigger and is teething and rolling, I can't help but miss my tiny newborn and want another one.  DH and I have not closed the door on having more children, but 2 is definitely as much as I can handle for now - sometimes it's MORE than I can handle, to be honest.

  • Halloween candy has been passed around our office for days, and now I have a nice little stash.  I know I need to lose 20 lbs, but it oddly is nice to have candy in my desk, even though I know I'm not going to eat much of it.  There will come a day soon, when I am pmsing that I will raid the stash.

    My other confession is that I put ds right to bed last night at his bedtime, although he had a later than usual dinner, because I wanted to watch Ghost Hunters on dvr and eat chili.   I feel so bad, especially since I worked all day and didn't get to see him for more than a few hours. 

    My last confession, is that I've been taking Ambien at night, every night, and I don't think I can sleep without it.  Granted it's prescribed by my doctor, and I take only the amount prescribed, but I sleep so well with it.   I still wake up when I hear ds at crying at night, but I have said things to dh after I've taken that I don't remember the next day. 

    I have more, but that's it for now!

    I totally get what you're saying.  I'm the same way.  Everyone thinks I've got this MoMs thing down, all organized and together when in reality, it's a mess. 

  • I think people are so obsessed with Teen Mom because it is a trainwreck and it makes them feel better about themselves and their parenting.

  • I bought some long sleeve shirts at the Gap/ON/BR 30% off sale a few weeks ago and they came this week.  I intended to use them for sleep shirts and wore one last night to bed for the first time.  Then, I was brushing my teeth this morning and thought "Hey, that's a good looking shirt."  So, I just kept it on.  Yes,  I am wearing my pajamas today.

    Yes, somewhat true for me.

    Jenna, I laughed out loud at your snuggie confession. Go for it!

  • Sam- I, for one, think you are neither unintelligent or boring. You are a smart sassy lady!

    Jenna- Snuggie lovah :) They do look comfy.

  • As much as I say that my past made me who I am today (which is true) I still am very ashamed at the way I acted as a teenager. What an ungrateful and naive teenager I was. I put my friends and family through so much that I wonder why/how we are all so close nowadays.

    Same here. I try to keep it altogether but inside I feel like I am drowning and failing at life.  It is a horrible feeling.

    Thanks.  You can't have years of bullying and teasing without having some scars.  I hope to teach my children to have better self-esteem.

    Isn't that an awful feeling?  I broke down earlier this week and told DH that I feel like a total failure as a mother and a wife and that he and the boys would be better off with someone else.  It's like I spend so much time trying to do everything that I'm missing out of the best parts of my boys' lives right now. 

    Wow, that turned into a pity party, didn't it?  Sorry!

    You all are not alone. I think we all (most people anyway) feel this way sometimes. And by sometimes I mean alot :)

    I think it's ironic that you are willing post something like this, but that you wouldnt offer your support and prayers (if you pray) if she asked for them on the internet because you dont know her.

    I know how you feel.  When I was in elementary school I was taunted repeatedly for having "no friends".  Now that I'm older, I have a few close friends, but by no means a lot.  I always find myself counting the friends I do have, and I feel SO guilty when I don't make the effort to make more friends...even if just for DD to have some playdates.  Honestly (this is my FFFC), I'd just rather stay at home with DD or do things by myself when I get "me" time.   I'm excited to have another baby so there's more people in my life (down the road, I mean).  I just feel like friends come and go but family is forever.
