I did not go camping with my family this weekend and go the whole time without brushing my kids' teeth. Nope, not me!
I did not let my 3-year-old put a cigar (still in wrapper) in his mouth and pretend to smoke it so he could be like his dad and grandpa while we were camping. No way, I would NEVER do that!
I did not get so excited while catching a fish on the boat this weekend, that I stopped watching Gabby and later turned to find her spilling chicken blood (from the chicken liver bait) all over herself and the carpet of the rented boat. That would be completely disgusting and I would never allow a thing like that to happen. I also would not scream in horror and scare her half to death while frantically washing chicken blood off of her, if that were to happen....I ALSO would not snap at my father-in-law for leaving bait within her reach IF something like that were to happen. I am much too responsible and polite to do any of that.
I also did not leave said fish on the line until Steven got back on the boat (from the jet ski with Grandpa) and let him reel it in and think he caught it. That would be silly. I wouldn't do that!
I did not hurt my back riding a jet ski around the lake on Saturday. I'm only 25 years old. 25-year-old women do not get back-aches from acting like teenagers. That only happens to old people. That certainly wasn't me.
I did not go to Burger King with my family (that's not healthy) and convince Steven to climb up to the top of the play-place even though he was scared, thinking it would get him to overcome his fear. I did not, then have to send my husband up the play-place to retrieve Steven from his place, frozen at the top. That would make me a bad mom and I would never do that.
I did not pick all the crusty boogers out of Gabby's nose a few minutes ago, then wipe them on her shirt. Why would I do something like that? I wouldn't. Not me....gross.
My husband and I did not tell Steven today, that if he was quiet for one minute, we would give him a quarter. Then time him, congratulate him and give him a nickle. No, that would be dishonest and, well, not very nice. I would not do something like that.
That's my Not Me Monday. I certainly did not do any of those things this week! I encourage you to all share the things that you have not done each week, too. It feels great to not confess all of those things you would NEVER do!
