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 did NOT tell my oldest son he couldn't have butter on his roll at dinnertime just because I didn't want to get up from the table for the 83rd time. I would NEVER be so lazy.
*I did NOT get upset with my husband for not being home on time so I could run an errand before knowing that he was late b/c he was buying my Valentine's Day present. I mean, he was working on a super-secret surprise. No WAY would I get mad about that, even though I didn't know.
*I did NOT consume only a 200 calorie roll with butter and garlic salt for dinner, thereby demonstrating inferior eating habits. I'm the poster woman for nutritious eating. So I would NEVER do something like that.
*I did NOT get so fed up with 2 boys' tattling that I threatened to give them 1 swat every time one of them starts a sentence with the name of the other. And, hypothetically speaking, it did NOT take only 2 swats before the tattling stopped for the evening.
*I did NOT leave Missy buckled in her booster seat for about 10 minutes after she was through eating when we had company on Saturday night just because I wanted a few more minutes of uninterrupted adult conversation. My children's needs always come before mine. Always.
*I did NOT throw away EVERY.SINGLE one of my angels' valentines, and the candy attached to each one, without reading the genuine messages of love and affection they received from their classmates ("You're purrrrr-fect, Valentine" (cats) or "I have a great feeling about you" (Star Wars)). Of course, I read all 65 of them AND recycled them properly. What else?
