Truth Be Told Tuesday #11 – Dirty Knives

For those of you that are new to Truth Be Told Tuesday (TBTT), this is a day for us to tell the truth about our lives. Not the truth that we portray on our blogs or on Facebook, but the real nitty gritty. In confessing our truths, we are supporting each other in our imperfections. And besides all of that…it’s a lot of fun!

One of my biggest pet peeves in the house is using multiple knives throughout the day. If we’re not careful, we’ll each use a different knife for every meal of the day and by the end of the day, we’re out of knives. So now we try to use the same knife throughout the day.

Truth Be Told, the other day I prepared my kids’ lunch with a dirty knife. I looked over to the kitchen sink at lunch time, preparing to make some grilled cheese, and I couldn’t remember which was my knife that day. So I just grabbed the one I thought it was and dug in to the butter. But it made me laugh because I immediately thought of TTBT and knew I had to share this confession with you guys.

So now it’s your turn! Tell us your truth in the comments. And for all of you lurkers out there (you know who you are ;) join us! It doesn’t have to be a big confession, you can start out small. But it really is so much fun and the more people we have confessing our truths, the more we support each other in our imperfections.

And don’t forget to spread the word on Facebook, Twitter or your own blog!


  1. oh hey, that's ok. i make my son's sandwich in the morning, lick the knife, and then use that licked peanut butter knife to put into the cream cheese that i put on my english muffin. just hope no guests eat the cream cheese. :)

  2. My house is constantly a mess because I am so busy with being mom, and working on my etsy shop! It is sort of embarrassing how bad it can get! You can read more in this post thanks for inviting me Rebecca!

  3. you now those hanger titties you get when you hang a shirt/sweater or something that will stretch on a hanger and it leaves a big dent on the shoulders...well instead of taking it off and ironing/fluffing it in the dryer or rewashing it...i usually slap some water on it and flatten it out with my hand. so many times i will show up somewhere to have wet shoulders (at least it is not da bum). i use to blame in on the baby....however, now tell it how it is..

  4. I have been known to slice the bread with the knife and then stick it back in the block. It's just dry bread and doesn't leave residue. Right? Ha ha.

  5. Ali - I do exactly that. I have also been known to just rinse out my cereal bowl and spoon, right after using them, and put them in the rack to dry.


I LOVE to hear from you guys! You all are the GREATEST! (And I love to reply to comments so make sure you have an email address attached to your Blogger Profile!)
