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."
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!
