I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Verse of the day

Monday, February 02, 2009




I have been watching Not Me! Monday, over at My charming kids, for several weeks now. I have been torn as to whether or not I wanted to participate - surely, not me!  
But this week seems to call for it. For example...
This week, I did not back into the fully loaded trash can which was waiting to be picked up.

I most certainly did not do this in full view of a whole passel of construction guys who are building a new house behind ours, who then did not proceed to visibly shake with laughter at the dumb blonde! 

Also this week, I did not give my kids leftover cake (and icecream) for breakfast one day, simply because it was there, and about to be stale, and I didn't want to waste it.  And they asked nicely. I mean... Not me

I would not have used multiple bandaids on a "boo-boo" the size of a dime, for days on end, simply because it keeps the peace. I don't spoil my three year old - Not me!

Besides that, our home is very calm. I am sure that at no point in time during this week would you have heard me say, emphatically, "Canaan, don't sit on your brother" or "Zion, don't throw blocks." 
Not me! 
Have you been perfect this week? If not, maybe you would like to play along with the "Not me Monday" crew too. 
 See you there!

OH I LOVE IT! SO FUNNY!!! I can't believe you backed into your trash can...I mean, how many days have you been putting it out there? (actually, I am surprised that you pay for trash pick up)
I am sorry....I don't know if I could participate...NOT ME!

I forgot to comment on the cake for breakfast....I have NOT EVER done that for sure!!!!
(well truly not for my kids, but...ME?! OF COURSE NOT!!!)
I do NOT have a piece of birthday cake expertly hidden on top of the fridge behind a basket and I certainly WILL NOT be eating it tonight after the kids are safe and asleep!

I saw this on Abby's blog to and when I tried to comment it wouldn't let me because I don't have her address. Can you e-mail me her address if you have it.

I don't see what's wrong with cake and ice cream for breakfast. I mean, it's practically cereal with milk....right?
