Here's hoping you all had a great week last week. I know I did. In fact, let me share with you all the details of my week.
1) I absolutely did not take the children out for lunch 3 days in a row. Being the good and diligent mom that I am, I would have been prepared for all of the outings we took and organized my time better so that the children were not out playing/running errands/etc right around lunchtime when I had nothing but a few suckers in our bag. Who has the money for lunch with two kids (whom actually eat a lot)3 days in a row - Not Me.
2)I certainly was not awakened by my youngest daughter at 3 AM who we believe his having bad dreams. I did not scoop up my sweet girl and rock her until we both fell asleep for an hour in the rocking chair. I most certainly did not awaken, look down, and completely treasure that moment we had together at 3:00 in the morning. I value sleep way too much for that - Not Me.
3)Being the OCD, overachieving, ultra organized, ADD mother that I am, there is no way that I would even think of laying down for a nap for two afternoons in a row while my two young toddlers were dozing away to dreamland. There is so much to do and not enough time to do it - taking a nap would most certainly put me "behind schedule." Ugh - Not ME.
4)I did not inhale a King Size candy bar that I begged my husband to buy me on an impromptu trip to the store. And if I would have eaten that ridiculous size candy bar, I would have taken longer than 4.25 seconds to do it, AND I would not be blogging about it. Ha - Not Me.
5) I did not - I repeat - did not start packing a wooden spoon in my "diaper bag" this week. I obviously have a tight reign over my kids, and simply asking them to obey is enough for me. I would never have to resort to the ole wooden spoon. Oh no folks - Not Me.
6)And finally, there is no way that I would ever pass down Mattea's underpants to Paloma under any condition. I don't care if Mattea had outgrown her 30 pairs of perfectly good underpants and Paloma only had 4 in her drawer. I can understand and appreciate the concept of sharing - but some things are off limits. No way would you find this conservative mom doing anything of the sort - Not Me.
Blessings to all this week.....
