Mommy Confessions


Oh my goodness.....
How do I even tell you something like this.
:deep breaths:
I KILL FLIES.
:hanging head in shame:
That's not the only bad part of this confession.
You see . . .
I also have my children HELP me in hunting down the lil suckers SO I CAN KILL THEM.
Yep, I make my kids run around and around until they find the fly and then armed with a fly swat thingy ma jig or newspaper I creep up on it and BAM!
What kind of example am I setting for my children?

Oh the HORROR!

I also kill mosquitos and ants.
I don't kill spiders though.
I make the hubby do that.
Sometimes I do toss shoes or books at them though.
That's abuse though, right?
oops...



Peta says we aren't supposed to kill flies though.
Even though they are YUCKY and ANNOYING and UGLY.
I guess they have feelings and stuff?
What do you think?

Hey, I actually told my husband that we shouldn't kill them.
We are supposed to hold out a little cup and ASK them to come to it.
Then we give the lil fly a ride (in a cup) to the door and let them just fly away.
My hubby thought I was crazy.
He hates flies more than me.

side note: (but not really a side not because it pertains to this subject)
Did you guys see the president pop that fly on tv?
lol
Peta was concerned about him killing the thing and I was concerned about the
Ummmm
Well...
Ya know
The "FLY REMAINS" being on his hands.
All together now . . .

EWWW!
another side note: I have much LOVE (PUFFY HEART LOVE) for animals. I just can't stand flies and other annoying and nasty insects.

Shh..don't tell...I totally killed one with my hands yesterday. How gross is that?! I had no choice though, and washed my hands for about 5 minutes afterwards. Ick ick ick! The little one found it hilarious though.

I thought the same thing when he popped that fly. The guts!

I can't rest if there's a fly in my house until I kill it. I'll just walk around over and over until I find it and smack its brains out. They're gross.

Phewwww (BIG sigh of relief, LOL!) Glad to know I'm not the only one, haha! Guess the cat's out of the bag now ;)

(I love reading your posts, they're hysterical. They help me remember that life's too important to be taken seriously, thanks!)

*hanging my head in shame*

Today I attempted to kill a fly. My daughter is terrified of them (poor girl!). Anyway, I did not succeed. At all. Which made her cry all the harder. So I did what any other momma would do. Opened the window and trapped it between the screen and window.

Now it's probably going to starve or die of a heat stroke....ssshh...don't tell Peta :)
