I LOVE David Roberts! We have a few of his books and the illustrations are fab! Highly recommended reading and GIVING and entirely appropriate considering the lesson taught! ;)

Love your confessions...not nearly scandalous enough. I might have to have a stab at this one. Do I want to reveal all though?



Dear sister..I always sleep through movies at the cinema... I too thought I was getting away with it until Sonny piped up ...
"Well that must have been good for mum to stay awake!"

Rosie Scribble

Karin, do have a go, and of course you must reveal all. Don't hold back. You'll feel much better once it is all *out there*!! And let me know when you have posted so I can rush straight over and read!

Rosie Scribble

Darling sister, what a relief it is not just me. Afterwards I asked IJ what her favourite part of the film was. She said "All of it!" I said that was my favourite part too. Have I got away with it? Possibly not but the 3D glasses did help cover up the fact that my eyes were closed, I think!

Emily Vest

I need to get hold of those books. They will go down a treat in this (male dominated) household! Love the idea of the confessions too, might have to have a go as well.

Rosie Scribble

Thanks Emily. My daughter would adore books like that too. I am keeping them well away from her. I think a few people are planning on blog confessionals now. Who knows where this may lead!!


We love the pooh book, we no longer Fart in the madhouse, oh no we parp or boff!!!!

Rosie Scribble

Oh God! So relieved I am giving the book rather than receiving it!!


Those books look great. I may have to get hold of them myself.

I'm not sure I'm brave enough to confess all on my blog. I'll have a think!


Aren't um, all blogs confessional? (http://stigmum.blogspot.com/2009/10/confessionals.html)
Yours is very funny unlike mine! And those books! Great idea to piss my sister off!! (and must read it to son first for he'll love it as much as me!)
Keep going with great posts

(Just hit that link on your page and I confess it leads nowhere!! Hit 'blog' label and scroll down and you'll find it though. Crikey, why am I such a luddite!)

Rosie Scribble

Don't worry Stigmum, I should be able to alter the link for later!


Have a great time at the party today, I wish I could see you both with your cross looks. I was chuckling to myself (I should be working!) about you blaming a friend for binning the art work. I do it all the time and have not yet been caught! but soon I expect..... Mich x

Rosie Scribble

I think bloggers are opting for 'selective confessions'. I doubt many would be confessing all, although I'm sure that would make a very interesting read! Thanks for your comment!

Rosie Scribble

I am not sure what the reaction will be. This poor friend gets blamed for everything although I suspect I have been blamed for many things that she has done to her own children so we are probably quits!!

Ang (A Mum's Survival Guide)

Lol, good luck at the party!

Rosie Scribble

Thanks! Wrapping the presents as I type this!


I do the binning artwork thing too - they come home with so much, and you just can't keep it. Luckily they haven't noticed yet. I also bin cheap nasty toys they get in party bags.

The best confessional blog I've read is at Belgian Waffling - lots of people comment anonymously and it's funny, sad and really revealing. here's a link.


Tim (aka The Dotterel)

Well done for getting all that off your chest Rosie, you must feel so much better. And I bet she has read the post, even though she hasn't commented. After all, we know all about her superpowers, don't we?

Metropolitan Mum

From now on, I am going to be very careful what I say to you. I am scared of the revenge that awaits me otherwise...

Mummy Mania

Ah this is great! Falling asleep at the cinema is perfect - sometimes after lunch I let the girls watch half an hour's TV and I lie on the sofa with them and sleep. Bliss. and yes, what ARE we meant to do with all the artwork?

A Modern Mother

I throw away artwork ALL the time. But I am a terrible liar and they always know I did it. Why did you throw away my butterfly mummy?! I always feel guilty too.

Crystal Jigsaw

Confessions are excellent, and I'm always having to confess something! Great post.

My confession is taking them to the cinema so that I can to sleep! Totally agree about all the artworks too. I wish I were organised enough to keep one from each phase (we're currently doing lots of 'pirate ships', and strange circles with lines coming out of the bottom). Like Nappyvalleygirl I throw away a lot of rubbish from party bags, and I also put back toys from Christmas and birthdays and give them to charity shops. Only so much plastic any one house can hold.

Lucy Quick


I may have also 'recycled' some art work (you just can't keep it all, can you?). If anyone asks me about it I'll claim that a big boy did it and ran away...

Muddling Along Mummy

Aw come on those aren't confessions, those are normal parenting behaviour - go away and come back with a decent confession !

Jo Middleton

Sleeping at the cinema is absolutely fine. In fact, cheap kids screenings on Sunday morning are my hangover stand-by - two hours sitting very still in the dark not having to answer annoying questions? Perfect!

And Belle is forever pulling her drawings out of the recycling, horrified, telling me they were meant to be gifts...

All Completely Normal.

Rosie Scribble

Oh I bin the cheap toys they get in party bags too! Such a relief to discover I'm not the only person who does that! Thanks for recommending Belgian Waffling's post. I'll take a look.

Rosie Scribble

She we do know about her superpowers. We also know that she will return to her friend's blogs a week after the post has been written and end up posting seven different comments on the seven different posts she has missed. So she'll probably read this some time mid-Feb!!

Rosie Scribble

No need to be scared! In fact I took the Pooh book to the party and it turns out her daughter already has it - why did that not surprise me?!! So even when I do revenge I get it wrong anyway!

Rosie Scribble

Thanks, I feel less guilty about falling asleep in the cinema now! The more artwork my daughter sends home, the more likely her teacher is to get a box of chocolates at the end of term. The reason for this - I know for a fact that he hates taking home so much chocolate. His wife is a teacher and between the pair of them they get 60 boxes. Ha! Now they will be left wondering what to do with them all!!

Rosie Scribble

Then I shall be expecting a confessions post any time soon!

Rosie Scribble

From now on I may view cinema trips as the opportunity to get a rest. I don't care it's costing me over ten pounds for an adult seat. In my opinion it's money well spent!

Rosie Scribble

Funny! I may have to find someone else to blame for the disappearing art work now. I may blame Granny from now on!

Rosie Scribble

I know, I know, you are right, these aren't real confessions. I know I should produce something juicier but my daughter may read my blog one day. That's my excuse anyway!

Rosie Scribble

What a relief to discover sleeping in the cinema is in fact completely normal. I'm off to check out cheap kids Sunday morning showings now!!


I have fallen asleep at every 3D movie I've tried to watch - I think my brain just zonks out at the effort of interpreting the images. I barely managed to stay awake for the wee snippet of 3D in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Either that or Imax seats are just comfy as a comfy can be..

Jo Beaufoix

Snort, the funny thing is we already have the fart book, so IJ may be getting a copy for her birthday. Mwah ha haa haaa.
