Certainly Not Me

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!!!
