My dirty little secret...

I have a dirty little secret…

Yes it is true I am harboring a dirty little secret…

See I am doing something that I am not proud of…that no one really knows about…not my family…not my friends.

I was introduced to it by accident…at first I thought I was too old for it…after all I have lived my life…been stuck to frat house floors…been a champion jello sucker – you know all of that…

But the lure of it…I thought well I’ll just try it once….

JUST ONCE…(I told myself)

But it gave me such a high…a goddamn high I tell you…I felt alive and invincible….

It wasn’t long before I was going back again and again…

The other night TC took the girls to their religious Ed class and for a whole hour I indulged in my dirty little secret…

And yes…I am ready to admit my dirty little secret, my new addiction…

Webkinz

Damn little horse and unicorn…I have been secretly logging in under the girls screen names so I can play the arcade games

Wonder Wheel
Cash Cow 1 AND 2
Triple Strike Solitare
Wacky Zingoz
Stackem Solitare
Polar Plunge
Wishing Well

I love them all….

But surely I can’t be alone….other mommies are harboring the same dirty little secret..

right?

Luckly, the girls aren't really aware yet that every time they log in they seem to have a lot more money than the last time they played…all they care about is if they have enough money to buy a TV or a bathtub or a fancy couch…

Yes…thanks to mommy’s little addiction you can buy that big screen TV for your virtual Unicorn webkinz…

I have bought them each a new Webkinz for Valentines day…but the question I have to really ask myself…is it for them for really for ME….

Hi, My name is Michelle and I am addicted to Webkinz too. It is so bad that my son and mil bought me one for Christmas this year.

And I thought I was the only one! It's pretty sad when my 4-year-old says, "Let's play Goober's Lab, Mom. That's your favorite." oops!

Well, I got sucked in too. Sophie was with me at work for a week. I had to learn the games to teach her. Thankfully I am only addicted to a word search one right now.
