I don't care.

Here are some things that I should care about, but I don't...  Because I'm tired.

Sure, go for it.  
1.  When I am vacuuming, and there is a sock on the ground, sometimes I try to just vacuum around it and not pick it up, which takes way more energy.  That never works.  It gets sucked up and I don't care.

2.  I always turn on the garbage disposal when the sink is full of dishes and I have no idea what's at the bottom of the pile precariously resting against the food grinding blades.  It's always a spoon in the disposal.  All of our spoons have roughed up parts, where the got chewed up by the blades.  Only the spoons ever fall in.  We are always buying new spoons and it never fails that every single one gets chewed up.

3.  My kids don't always brush their teeth every night.  Okay, I have to say, I care about this, but my husband doesn't.  He just wants to get them to bed as fast as possible, and be alone with me.  They always say, "I'll brush them in the morning, mommy."  (No cavities, don't worry!)
This is just scary.
4.  My kids don't believe in the Easter Bunny.  Nope, just couldn't do it.  I think it would be freaking scary for them to think a huge rabbit comes into our house in the middle of the night.  I think things like the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy, diminish the power of  Santa, which they do believe in.  Santa is a Saint and Jesus wanted all the children to have presents on HIS birthday.  We don't push the chimney thing.  He's magic.  There is magic to Christmas.  We all feel it.  The Easter Bunny is scary.   They know we hide the eggs and they even help me fill them.

5.  My kids like to watch TV.  I don't let them watch stupid crap like Sponge Bob or anything like that. Yo Gabba Gabba freaks me out.  I don't allow any shows with people dressed in big weird costumes,   (except Sesame Street).   If I think a show will only kill brain cells, and not grow at least a few, they don't watch it.  PBS:  Arthur, Curious George, Caillou..  Nick:  Max and Ruby.  The Hub:  Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Pony.  They love Modern Marvels on the History Channel, and Myth Busters.  They watch the History Channel.  They love Cupcake Wars and decorating shows on DIY and HGTV.  They even like Project Runway. Michael actually insists he is going to make me a beautiful dress all by himself,  he just "needs my sewing machine." "Mommy it will be a special dress and you will look beautiful."
Just no.  Just say no.

They like to watch TV and I let them watch TV.  Too much TV.

6.  Stella calls Springfield "Sprinkafield" and we don't correct her. It's too cute.  

7.  My kids see me naked all the time.  We have a very private yard and no neighbors.  We go naked in the hot tub and whatever.  There is no mystery.

8.  We have never had a big party for our twins' birthday.  No little kids have been invited.  Small immediate family dinners and cake, and we sing to each of them separately at the very moment they were each born:  6:33 and 6:34.  This is a special moment between them and us.  We would rather be alone, just our little family, than with anyone else.

9.  My children spend 90% of their time at home in just their undies.  They have never liked getting dressed, and especially feel more comfortable in undies when home.  They play in the yard in their undies.  Last year they called warm weather "undie weather."

10.  I shop online when we have no money...  Now this bothers me greatly and I feel extreme guilt afterward, but at the time of pressing confirm order, or place bid, I don't care.  I feel good.  I want that stuff.
