As I near the end of my pregnancy I want to make some confessions that may make other people feel better about their “mothering” skills at the end of their pregnancy.
10 Confessions of a Pregnant Homeschooling Mom:
- My children might literally watch TV all day long.
- My homeschooling methods consist of telling them what to do and making them go away…and not checking in on them very much.
- I seem to YELL a lot more lately.
- I walk around the house naked most of the time. (Lucky I have four girls and a baby boy).
- Attempts at sex…are SOOOO not sexy. God bless my husband.
- If you ask me if we are having more, I may cry and then rage because I don’t know the answer and I SOOO wish I did.
- I see the dirtiness of my house. I feel major guilt, but guilt is usurped by Facebook.
- Pinterest and my boxed fan are my BFFs…put them together and I’m in heaven.
- I make my bigger children check on the little ones to make sure they aren’t dead…because I am too lazy to get off my Kindle.
- My spiritual life consists of me skimming one Bible chapter and saying a two-lined prayer that I wouldn’t kill anyone today.
Don’t you feel better about yourself?
Good. Glad I could help.

With uplifting and humorous stories, the author, Elaine Mingus, explores her first days of becoming a mommy with the wisdom that comes from having six children.
