I take better care of my kids than I do myself.

That is good for them or they’d be a mess.

As it is, I am the only one that is a mess.
(Well, my teenage daughter is kinda a hormonal mess…. but that is a different kind of mess :)

I make them go to bed at a decent hour.  Too early if you ask them.

I stay up way too late – doing stupid things – watching DVR’d TV, eating junk food from my secret stash, drinking wine, playing Word Scramble on my ipod, being nosy on facebook – like I said, stupid things)

I make them have a shower almost every day.

I often skip a day, every other day is pretty good for this WAHM :(

I make them eat healthy snacks – apples, bananas, yogurt.

When was the last time I ate one of these?  I dunno really – I think I “save” them for the kids.  They aren’t cheap you know and I want them to last as long as possible.

I make them “unplug” and not spend too much time watching TV, on the computer, or playing video games.

Umm.  I practically live on this computer.

I make them go outside and play and get some fresh air & exercise.

While I SIT on the porch and watch them.

I make them do their homework on time and try to get them be organized on big projects.

I often pay the bills at exactly the last minute and let me just say that our taxes were not done early this year!


I will try to do better.  I am going to start by eating at least one apple this week.  And I have been trying hard to get to bed earlier – I will keep trying.  I think I value that “alone time” way too much and I just veg out and love it.  Not good for me though at all!  What else?  I have exercised once this week and am gonna go get on the treadmill as soon as I’m done here…..

It’s time I took my own advice.
