Not Me Monday

I am so NOT posting a "Not Me Monday" on Wednesday. How lame would that be?

I did get out of bed and fix breakfast and feed the kids this morning. I absolutely DID NOT go back to bed with a book and a baby while the rest of the children were left to govern themselves, frying their brains on TV and computer games and running amuck.

Much like my views on TV, I have never thought credit cards came from Satan himself. I don't get my panties in a wad about using credit. However, it's still not normally a lifestyle we choose. We were married for 7 years before we had a credit card at all, and have never carried a balance more than a couple of months. I IN NO WAY just made the stupidest financial decision ever and purchased 2 recliners on 0 down, no payment for 12 months. NOT ME!!!!

I did not just tell one of my kids to hit the other.

I have never rolled the windows down and cranked Laurie Berkner all the way up to drown out a crying baby, a whining toddler, tattling preschoolers, and bickering grade schoolers. Never. I am always of sound mind and wouldn't stoop to reciprocating elementary behavior that solves/teaches nothing.

And I absolutely, would never, ever in a billion years have reese's cups for lunch while demanding my children eat their peanut butter and honey sandwiches and yogurt and pretzels. How rude! (At least I was sneaky about it) Oh, I supposed to say I wasn't sneaky about it? And that's another thing. I'm NEVER confused. I'm perfect. I always understand.

Haha...No, you don't NEED those recliners to lots of baby rocking!

I love the Not Me Monday's....even if it is on Wednesday....makes me feel much better about a mom!!

I love the crank up the radio.....that's me too...and the other day, I went and got Clay's Zune before I went in to deal with a fussy baby!

I would never tell my kids "Coke is not for breakfast" while drinking one. I've never given my kids chips for breakfast, EVER. And neither have I ever been more interested in Dave Ramsey than what the kids did at school today. That kind of parenting is BAD. Good thing I'm such a good parent that they keep showing up with more kids for me....

Hey- I had a Reese's cup for dinner... but I did have a glass of milk with it. That's balanced right?
