Not Me! Monday...

This week I did not threaten to kick my children's tiny butts if they did not stop fighting, whining, or using my mouse as a telephone. First off my children are not that wild and secondly, anyone who knows me knows that I would definitely kick their butts if given the chance. In fact, I am not wrestling my mouse back out of my daughter's hands at this very moment.

I am definitely not ignoring her crying so that I can continue typing this. That would just be bad parenting.

I certainly did not show up to my friend's house for dinner, and even though she has just suffered an enormous life-altering loss, complain about how badly my day went. That would just be selfish and weird. And I never do weird.

I did not attempt to cheer up my temper-tantruming-two-year-old with pudding and popsicles a single time this week, so saying that I did it several times would be a complete and total lie.

I did not wear the same sweater two days in a row because it was already out and clean enough.

Oh, and I totally stuck to my menu plan all week.


  1. Thank goodness none of those things happened this week! Phew! : ). The mouse is a huge attraction at your cute.

  2. Very funny! Bribery-by-pudding works in this house, also :o)

  3. Wow, I wish I had been as amazing as you as a mom. Ask Jason if I ever had to kick his butt. When he was a kid we didn't have a "mouse" to play with but he did have a pet rat. Love Mom xoxoxo

  4. I love the not me Monday, its great. OF course I have never done it, but maybe in the future. Right now I feel like not me weekly, so I dont think it would work. BY the way you had every right to show up and complain about your children acting like Monkey's in the local mall HEHE, I just loved your company and cannot wait to see you more.....
