15 Confessions of a Mediocre Mormon Mom

1. I eat hot Cheetos almost every day.

2. I love watching reality shows about people whose lives totally suck.  I know you shouldn’t compare yourself to others but…it makes me feel better about myself (as immature as that is), and more motivated to do better.

3. I don’t brush my teeth at night (anymore).

4. I don’t wash my face at night (anymore).

5. I don’t floss (anymore) unless my teeth hurt.

6. Wow, I’m really letting myself go!

7. Over a year later, I still have a box of pictures in frames sitting on my dresser.  I’ll put them up eventually, I promise!

8. I rarely make my bed.  Or any bed for that matter.  Some of you already know this because I wrote a blog post about it titled, The Bed-Making Conspiracy.  Little Tidbit: In that post there is a picture of my bed and through the mirror you can actually see the box of pictures I haven’t put up yet–proof of my incompetence!

9. I drink a Big Gulp (or two) of Diet Coke (or Diet Dr. Pepper if I can get it) every weekday.

10. Sometimes I open Hubby’s mail and even forge his checks!

11. I have Really Stinky Farts.

12. I bite my nails.

13. My most exciting outfit is a plain shirt with a STRIPED tank top underneath.

14. I wipe my nose on my sleeve if I don’t have a tissue.

15. There are actually things too embarrassing to be put on this list.

  1. i have to tell you how grateful i am to hear about the night teeth brushing. It’s one of those things i’ve often thought, “I wonder how many people actually don’t brush their teeth as regularly at night as we’re all supposed to believe.” I am terrible at it myself! So yay! Real people are just as inconsistently hygenic and improper as myself, woohoo! But at least I do do it in the morning, even if sometimes my mornings extend to 4pm. You’re not nearly as mediocre as you think yourself, or if you are, then you’re not nearly as alone in that status as you may think. The only difference is that you’re brave enough to publicize it. So thanks for non mediocre courage.

  2. Thanks for the kind words, you are so sweet, and i totally agree! Real people ARE inconsistently hygenic! It’s so good to not be the only one! And my mornings often last that long too. Why shower and brush my teeth if Hubby isn’t home yet???
