Go Ahead... Judge Me.

I know. I don't always do things "by the book". Go ahead, judge me.

I don't always "follow the rules", even if/when I made up those rules. Go ahead, judge me.

I know... sometimes my middle child eats an ice cream sandwich for breakfast on his way to school. Go ahead, judge me.

I am horrible about making my children go to bed on time. Heck, I can barely get to bed at a decent hour myself. Go ahead, judge me.

I know... sometimes I say things I shouldn't say like, "That's what she said"... Go ahead, judge me.

I did not plant a garden and was not fruitful & self-sufficient this summer. Go ahead, judge me.

The only reason my recycle bin makes it out to the curb is because both of my neighbors fill it up, while I continue to throw "trash" away. Go ahead, judge me.

I allowed my son to find a loophole so that he didn't have to break a rule, nor ask me to allow him to break such said rule. Go ahead, judge me.

It's true... On occassion, I have taken the teens TPing, on WalMart Scavenger Hunts, Midnight Walks, on various trails, and on late-night stake-outs so they could plaster Post-It notes all over a girl's front window. Go head, judge me.

My 9 year old has learned to do laundry and now I rarely wash any of my children's clothes, let alone and put them away. What do I care if they get wrinkled as they SHOVE them in their drawers??? They are the ones that have to wear them, right? Go ahead, judge me.

My 15 year old son has held a girl's hand... and I know about it... and I don't care. Go ahead, judge me.

I don't always serve from ALL FIVE FOOD GROUPs during dinner. Sometimes, a frozen burrito or an Eggo IS dinner. Go ahead, judge me.

Yes, very recently I uttered the word "crap" from across the pulpit at church... yes, they noticed. Go ahead, judge me.

I will probably always talk a bit too fast, a bit too much and perhaps (on occassion) a bit too loudly. Go ahead, judge me.

Go ahead... judge me. And as long as we're "playing"... how about you lay YOUR cards out on the table, and I will judge you too! Of course, it would probably be an uneven playing field as you're so close to perfect and all... HAHAHA! ooops... was that too harsh?

Well, go ahead... judge me!

No one has the right to judge others, we are all right...aren't we?
You make me laugh so much! I just love this blog!

The judgement is in: You're cool!

I won't judge you if you won't judge me.

I found you from Anna's blog. I love reading it. Anyway- I needed to read this blog as I have been feeling sorry for myself about all the things I don't do right with my kids. (For example, I just let my son eat a few spoonfuls of nutella for breakfast in bed) BUT, I have realized that I am not perfect and everybody gets to make their own choices. What is right for you may not be right for me. I also don't know your situation, so I won't judge. Although I think it awesome that you've taken your kids tping... :)

Not me pal! I got too many errors in my corner.

Ruthykins said...

just the other day okeydokey and i were talking about this very thing. not you, just in general. she was saying the she doesn't get why people do certain things, but then she said that they are probably thinking the same thing about her. i just thought it was funny.

My kids eat cereal for dinner. I don't pay attention to when my 8 year old's takes a bath. If I can't remember when the last bath was, then it's time for a bath.

no judgements coming from me! I actually say "that's what she said" in my mind at CHURCH sometimes. I can't HELP IT! It's so easy with what some people say.

If my kid puts food in their stomach at or around mealtime..it COUNTS! doesn't matter what it is!

I heard someone recently get all hyper about denying her kid drank a soda. Like really...it's not going to kill them don't be ridiculous! Moderation in all things. Or not. Whatever works for the moment! ;)

p.s. my house is a DUMP right now. go ahead, judge me!

Vickie said...

Judge you? No way! I let my kids stay up and vegetables, not here. The doctor asked if my little one is eating her greens and I said a big fat NOPE! Please...she is my sodium nitrate baby:p

I have done pancakes for dinner, syrup and all!

I have delete a kid show to make room on my DVR.

On the weekend their hair is not always brushed.

I figure they are alive, so I must be doing something right.

That's very "whoever is without sin, cast the first stone." I am not without sin.

I don't always vacuum my upholstery.

I don't always deep clean my carpets.

I don't always wash my walls.

I don't always do my hair and makeup.

I don't always pull my weeds.

I don't always organize my basement.

I don't always sleep the floor.

Gosh...that felt good to get off my chest:-)

Betty said...

LOL! I won´t judge you....remember what it says in the bible "he who is without sin, throw the first rock". Not me, uh-huh!

Sometimes hubby has to eat cereal for dinner, ´cause I´m just not in the mood.
I never make our bed!
I don´t sweep!
...and many more.
I think we´re all not perfect!

Paige said...

I judge you all right. And surely my vote counts for more than anyone who disagrees, right?

Blog Stalker said...

You just make everyone else feel normal.

Have a great day!

purplehaze said...

Well Emma it isn't my place to judge you it is God's so I won't and I am not perfect at all that is for sure. I tend to let my kids stay up to late even when it is a school night and after all it is hard not to let them when I usually don't go to be until 2 Am so no I will not judge you!!!

Megan said...

Are you, by chance, being judged recently? lol I don't think anything that you posted is bad! And people can judge me for that! Haha!

lilianril said...

Life (and work) would be so much more boring if you were always perfect. We like you just the way you are, especially because it results in so many more fun stories!
