I have been meaning to write a "Not Me! Monday!" post for, well... several Mondays. In fact, I have even scribbled down some things I
(This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week!)
This month I did not clean up gobs and gobs of dried glue off the wood floor in my office. I always supervise my kids when they are using glue to be sure the proper amount of glue is being used. I would never just give them glue bottles and let 'um go!
This month I did not bake the really easy "pull-the-dough-apart-and-set-on-cookie-sheet" chocolate chip cookies for our neighbors (who let our kids play on their swing set all summer, even though we have our own.) I would never be so lazy as to go to such little work to show appreciation!
This month I did not eat my weight in raw chocolate chip cookie dough (while making the above-mentioned cookies.) The package specifically told me not to eat it, and I always do what I read. I would never do something that may put my health in jeopardy.
This month I did not "accidentally" forget the kids' Elmo CD in the house before heading out. I know they love listening to that CD on the way in to town, and I would never "intentionally forget" something just to keep my brain from exploding at the sound of a puppet's voice.
This month I did not bribe the kids with a treat while taking pictures for our Christmas card. Our kids always sit so nicely and smile their true, genuine smiles every time I ask. I would never have to resort to bribery, which is something I said I would never do
before I was a Mom and needed good Christmas card pictures.
These are not our children, because our children would never make silly faces or cry or try to escape during a mini-photo shoot. Never.
Happy "Not Me! Monday!"
