Mommy Confessions ~ Mom fails!

Wondering where my weekend/Easter recap was yesterday!? I didn't do one because our Easter kinda sucked! First off the weather was crappy and we ended up doing the egg hunt, if that is want you would even call it, inside. Of course no one can control the weather so it was what it was, I just have no pictures of the kids hunting for eggs this year...mom fail!

Second, Lucas was sick all weekend and still is for that matter. He spent the whole day in mine or Matt's arms being a shy guy. He let a few people hold him but not for very long. Again I took no pictures of him that day...again, mom fail!

Third, Logan and Abby were over the moon excited about leaving for Disney with my parents that night that they really weren't into their Easter baskets. Now don't get me wrong I am so glad they get to go to Disney again but the mom in me was disappoint at the lack of excitement that morning when they saw their baskets. Totally lame of me I know but come on, we as parents look forward to the excitement of holidays because of our kids. At least I think Lucas liked his a lot and he just got a simple little bucket with blocks, ha!

I guess not every holiday can be out of this world and I will just have to make sure next year is over the top. Lucas will be old enough to hunt eggs by then so that alone will make it better.

So I am confessing today that sometimes I fail as a mother, SAY WHAT!?!? ;)

I feel like this sometimes, too. Especially because between our in-laws, and my parents (who are divorced) the kids ended up having 3 Easters pretty much. And they are beginning to expect it and it's like whatever we get them isn't enough, they wanna know what's grandma getting them and what's papa getting them, etc. :( Makes me sad sometimes, but I also don't want to deprive them of their family time.

:( I can only imagine how frustrating it can be sometimes. I still think you are awesome, especially still have an Easter egg hunt inside. :)

Mommys are allowed to fail sometimes! I'm sorry baby boy was sick this weekend and the weather didn't cooperate. The weather here was horrible on Sunday as well! Hope you have a wonderful week!

Sometimes holidays just suck. I think the last two easters my oldest was sick. I feel like every holiday we are sick :/

Awww - I feel ya on being disappointed the kids weren't psyched with opening their baskets! I suppose nothing compares to the excitement of Disney, but like you said - as a parent, it's SO exciting to see your kids go bananas for the gifts you got them!

Ha! So funny! This is usually me, not taking a single freaking picture.
More about LIVING than documenting, right?
