"Not Me" Monday!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I absolutely did NOT let my 2 1/2 year old stand half naked and pee on the van tire in the middle of Menard's parking lot. If he had to go potty, I would have taken him back into the store and used the restroom in the privacy of his own stall.

I definitely did NOT justify us eating out after church yesterday because a nearby restaurant had a "Kids eat free" day. We did not have that planned in our budget and it would have been silly to take money out of our savings to eat out. That is so not necessary when we have a house full of groceries.

When we woke up to my 4-year-old peeing in the bathtub in the middle of the night last night, we definitely did NOT just let him finish and tell ourselves we would clean it up in the morning. As I already said, our bathroom manners are top notch and that would be totally disgusting.

In the last couple weeks, a lot of the work we have been doing has been on the outside of the house. We've worked on landscaping, painting, house repairs, fixing windows, etc. While we were working on the house, I definitely did NOT catch my kids playing with slugs and then continue to allow it. I can not stand slugs, they totally gross me out! I would never see them building a "Slug Resort" and actually think it was kinda cute. The fact that they were staying entertained for hours on end was NOT enough to convince me to let them play with these nasty little creatures.

Last but not least, I did NOT open up my back door about 15 times Friday evening just to gaze at our new deck. I have waaaay better ways to spend my time. I have 6 kids that need my attention, I would never stand and stare at inanimate objects!

Have a great Monday!!!

I had to die laughing at the peeing in the parking lot scenario...I justify that everytime by saying that I am hiding him behind the door, blocking him with my body, no one can see (oh, except for the stream of pee-pee....)


Deck looks great! Glad you got someone who did a good job for you!
