Not Me Monday


It is time again for Not Me Monday, where I follow MckMama's example in keepin' it real, and tell the world, or at least the 3 people who read this blog, what we did NOT do this week.

This week I did not, after setting the alarm clock to get up early, then turn it off and sleep for TWO more hours, thereby turning our breakfast into brunch, and cutting our school time by half.

I did not accidentally slam my sleeping child's itty-bitty toes in the van door. He did not cry in agony for 40 minutes. And when I told Mike we would need to take him to the E-room, and would he please grab a few suckers so said screamer would lay still for the X-ray, he did not stop screaming mid-wail to say "Can I have one now?". He did not then run across the room to get it.

I did not abandon my four precious babies to the wilds of dinner at a fast food joint, and movie watching till past bedtime, to go paint pottery with the girls. We did not have a roaring good time, and not miss our kids AT ALL! We will not be doing it again!

We also didn't, after the exhausting day at co-op, then head directly to Walk Through Bethleham, and not get home until after 9:00. That would be to much to do in one day, and we would be to tired to clean the house if we did that! Sooo......

We did not follow that by not cleaning the house AT ALL this weekend!

We did not go to our 7th weekend IN A ROW (!!!) to another birthday party. There is not another one next week!

You forgot to say that said screamer's toes we not black & blue! : ) OUCH!!! But, we can totally relate. Today, David did not step on Micah's finger & Micah did not come crying into the house with his few fingers saying, "Mom, my dad didn't even apologize."
