It’s been so long since I’ve participated in an MckMama’s “Not Me” Monday, I thought I’d give it a go today.
Needing some peace and quiet while I tried to clean up the house I did not barricade the 1 year old in his room (full of toys, mind you) so I could work without a clinging baby underfoot. I also did not leave him in there until he fell asleep on the floor with his favorite blankey. I don’t ignore my children, ever.
I did not hide dirty pans in the stove when my in-laws came over to have their pictures taken for Christmas.
I did not pre-heat said oven full of dirty pans before realizing they were still in there.
I did not run the egg cooker on the toaster dry and stink up the house. I did not blame the stink on the wet dog.
I did not skip fixing my hair for a photo shoot because I knew I’d be outside in a winter hat.
I did not miss church for the third time because my husband is driving the only vehicle that accommodates four children in actual seats.
I did not let the kids watch Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull for movie night. It would be way too scary for them!
I did not take a bazillion pictures rather than clean up the baby when he practiced using utensils.
I did not get someone to work for me just so I can go with a friend to Minneapolis and have dinner with MckMama!!!
