Not Me Monday


My friend Julie does this every Monday...and I'm looking forward to getting some things off my chest.

I most certainly did not clean my minivan after MONTHS of neglect and find a banana peel so old, it was black and crisp under the back seat. I would never let my car get THAT gross.

I would never consider going to the craft store with my two tired children at 7pm, and bribe them to behave with a bag of DUM-DUM lollipops, because that would never work. Nope, not me! I would know better.

AND FURTHERMORE, I would never ever buy 12 yards of flannel, with the intention to sew every child I give christmas gifts to, thier very own, homemade flannel jammies and matching pillow cases, one month before Christmas. NO, NO, not me!

NOR would I allow my darling babies to eat animal crackers for breakfast, because I was out of cereal and milk, and I was too lazy to cook something like eggs or oatmeal. No, not me!

I would not let myself get so overloaded with laundry that my mom would have to come over out of the goodness of her heart and help me fold MT. KESLER of laundry in my family room. NOPE...I am way more on top of things than that.

How about you? What would you never ever do?

Hmm, let's see. I would NEVER leave my 16 month old in her room until 9:20am just because she's content and not crying so that I can continue to read blogs uninterupted. Nope not me. Did I mention that it's 9:20 and my boys have not had breakfast, only a granola bar? I may as well wait to just feed them lunch which I typically do at 11am anyway so Ryan can eat before school starts at noon. I should get a mother of the year award!!

i also would not have just vacuumed my car yesterday after months of neglect - nope, not me! that would be embarrassing to have all those carpool kids in it with all that filth!

Oh - thank you for your honesty - makes me feel so much better about all of the mommy duty's in my world that I am completely behind on while still managing to get on this computer and feel some sort of connection to people.

I would never shove everything into our bedroom seconds before guests arrive...and then, weeks later, still have piles of stuff lingering in the bedroom that doesn't belong there!
