Friday Confessional

I'm linking up with Mamarazzi today to clear my conscience!

I confess...
I think I am more ready for school to be out this year than the students are!  It's been a rough year.  'Nuff said.

I confess...
I was extremely pleased when our 23 year old remarked how when she has kids, they will not be allowed to have electronics at the table during meals.  Her uncle's grandkids were glued to their ipods (ages 6 and 13) during mother's day lunch and wouldn't communicate with anyone, much less their great grandmother who was trying to have a conversation with them.  I'm happy to say that 23 y o lived under those rules and didn't appreciate it at the time, but she certainly does now.  I'm so proud of her!

I confess...
I'm a little nervous... No.  Extrememly nervous that my twins will be 16 and driving soon!  Eeeek!  Boy twin gets his license as soon as he turns 16 (six weeks) and girl twin got her learner's permit yesterday.

I confess...
I have been in a "mood" this past week.  Irritable.  Not feeling appreciated.  One of those moods.  I'm starting to feel a little better, though.

I confess...
I'm really put off by the media these days.  When something happens, they sensationalize it, and someone accused of a crime is tried in the court of public opinion instead of in a court of law.  Then, the public gets angry when the jurors, who have access to all the facts and evidence unlike the rest of us, don't get the verdict they want and feel the need to protest it.  There.  I said it.

And I confess...
I spent too much time on Bloom.com last night (thanks to Mamarazzi)!  You should read her post about it and go check it out!

Have a happy weekend everyone!  I'm off to a baseball game - no - three.  The Astros/Rangers and two of my son's games.  Baseball for three days in a row!

Glad you are feeling better. I was in that mood too, I think for me it is just the stress of having so many commitments this time of year. I am excited for Summer just so it can be more about what I WANT to do, not what I have to be doing.

EEEEEKKK is right about the twins getting their licenses. I'm sure you still look at them and see your little ones sitting infront of you. That is how I will be I'm sure.

isn't it nice when the kids get a little older and have those little "aha" moments and you have PROOF that you have been parenting right all this time? good stuff.

I have been irritable too! Might be due to the lack of sleep I have been getting!

I am so with your 23 y/o on the electronics at the table thing. I was trying to speak to our cousin's son last night at dinner, and he wouldn't answer me because he was too engrossed in his video game. And what is really irritating is that Mom & Dad were sitting right there, and neither of them would just take the phone away!

Summer vacations! Oh those were the days!

Have a fabulous weekend!

I am definitely with you and your 23 year old about the electronics. My oldest step son is obsessed with his video games, and wants to play them everywhere. A lot of the time I tell him he needs to put it away and find something better do to. I hate how much kids are attached to their electronics.
I don't blame you for being nervous about the twins getting their licenses.
Have a blast at the baseball games!

I would be just as nervous about the kids getting their license....I think that will go away eventually, but who knows. I just think to the future when my kids are that age and how I will be worrying about them!
I'm glad your feeling better as well, it's so easy to feel unappreciated as a woman! We do so much, and a lot of it goes unnoticed.

I think everyone I've talked to is ready for school to be out.

I confess the same on media!

So far the no media at the table rule hasn't been an issue for us, but I'm sure the time will come.
