Say that again

UMM is the funniest kid to walk the earth (and I'm not just saying that because I'm her mom). She really is!

Bits: "Daddy has a boy baby in his belly."

Mom: "No Sweetie, Daddies don't have babies in their bellies."

Bits: "Why is him's belly so big?"

Mom: "Ask your Dad that one!"

No, this is NOT a drawing of my hubby, it just made me giggle and I love adding pictures to my posts, as I'm sure all of you love to see pictures.

I'm sure if he had some input for this posting he would blame me. See, I heart goodies. I have to have snacks around. ALWAYS. That's how I was raised. Of course now that my metabolism isn't what it was before I had kids I struggle with my weight now, too. But snacking is a hard addiction to overcome. I go to the store and have to pick up snacks for the kids and some "mommy snacks." You all know what I am talking about. The snacks that only come out when the kids are not around. The more expensive chocolates that you just can't do without. Yup, those are the "mommy snacks."

So, since I buy the snacks and make monster sized meals (I learned to cook for my family growing up- 8 people), I snack on things constantly and I am gone most nights he would say it is my fault.

I understand we are both bored eaters. I understand I have a serious lack of self control when chocolate is in the house, but I blame that on myself. So, let's all just buck up and take responsibility. Repeat after me- "If I have no self control it is my own dang fault." I'm not just talking food. Genetically I am predisposed to being overweight. I have to accept that. Others have the same problem. I'm talking about a general lack of self control. I don't seem to listen when the little voice in my head says I've been blogging long enough. I don't listen when I tell myself that I need to put the book down and go to sleep because it is after 2am. I don't listen when I tell myself that I will only have a handful of Cadbury Mini Eggs (not the ones with the filling, just the milk chocolate with the hard shells. YUM!). Do you know what I mean? My intentions to have good self control are there, but I don't seem to know how to follow my own thoughts/advice.

Any advice you would like to give on this subject will probably be ignored, but you are welcome to put any on here that you would like. I'll just delete it if I don't like it or the little voice inside my head tells me to. See, I do listen to the voice sometimes.

Did this post follow anyone else's train of thought? I think my train got derailed as I was typing. Hopefully you aren't all sick from the rollercoaster ride.
