Monday Mom Confession

Doing a Monday Mom Confession a couple of weeks ago was so fun and freeing that I think I’m going start doing it weekly, at least until I’m out of ideas to share.  I’d love for you to join me – I’ll start doing a link-up so feel free to jump on board, or just share your own confession in the comments!  Let’s throw off the weight of perfection and get real around here.

I play the worst game ever with my kids.

You know how sometimes you get silly and say “I love you.”  “I love you more.”  “I love you most!”?

Basically, I do the opposite.

When one or both of my kids was driving me bananas, I’d look at my son and say “I’m giving one of you back!  Who should it be?”

These days it’s morphed into a silly game with Conlan – when his sister is being particularly ridiculous, I say to him, “Conlan, should we give her back?”

He rolls his eyes at me and emphatically says “NO!”

To me, it’s fun, it’s silly, and it always reaffirms how much my son loves his sister – no matter how much she’s driving us both crazy at the moment, he wants her here in our family.

I’m just not sure what I’ll do if he ever says, “Yes!”
