Not Me, Monday

Welcome to Not Me Monday, a blog carnival created by MckMama at My Charming Kids. It's a place where we can share what we have "not" been doing this past week.

So here are a few things I did "not" do.

I did "not" make a last minute dash into the Family Dollar store on the way to church Sunday morning because my kids needed a bag lunch to eat between church service and Christmas Pageant Practice. I did "not" buy a pile of junk food (plus some raisins just so I could convince myself it was a little healthy) for my kids to eat for lunch. I would never do that, I am always prepared to feed my kids healthy meals no matter what the occasion.

When I came home that afternoon and found nearly everyone outside I did "not" try to sneak inside and eat the last few Pringles in the can. When I heard one of my kids come in the door I did "not" run upstairs to eat the chips in the safety of my bedroom only to have another child call out "Are you eating chips?" I did "not" selfishly eat them all myself anyway. I am always willing to share the last of the Pringles with my kids.

I did "not" wonder the rest of the day how it is the kids junk food radar always manages to know when I am trying to sneak some past them.

I did "not" forget to give one child his morning medication before he left for the day, causing my husband to have to make a detour on the way to church to take it to him. I always remember important things like that.

The sad part is all these things I did "not" do are just from today (I'm writing this Sunday evening). I don't even want to think about all the things I did "not" do all last week.


  1. Following you over from McMama. I had to giggle about the pringles, I just got a can for myself this week.

    I missed the linky, but here is my post:

  2. That is too funny! Kids do seem to have a junk food radar don't they?!! :)
