Not Me! Monday

I've thought about this for a few weeks, but I haven't posted anything...

I have been following a blog for a while (I need to add it to the blogs I follow on the side of my page!) and she has a Not Me Monday section... so, now, I am debuting some things that I did NOT do this past week, because I am a good wife/mother/daughter...

Yesterday I did NOT sleep in until 8:00 even though I needed to get up and ready for church. I did NOT make my husband get up before me to get ready even though he got home from work around midnight and I went to sleep around 10:45-11:00 the night before. (However, we still made it to church basically on time...)

Last Monday, when I read last week's Not Me post and decided I was going to post, I did NOT think about what I might NOT do so I might have an interesting post...

Friday night I did NOT tell my sister that we could go shopping at Target with Dillon for birthday presents for my husband's family get together Saturday morning so I could look at Target's cheap new winter clothing items and decide 2 items were just perfect for me. I would NEVER impulse buy when I know that I need to be buying for other people...

Even though birthday cards are the main event at the family birthday get togethers, I did NOT forget them on the coffee table and only realize it when we got to Chris's grandparents' house. And I did NOT beat myself up for it all morning even though we brought 2 presents, 1 baby and his stuff, and part of breakfast and were actually EARLY for a get-together...

When my son was crying yesterday because I took away a toy he wasn't supposed to have, I DIDN'T give him Daddy's comb to make him immediately stop and grin at me. That would be spoiling my son and getting him used to playing with things he might not always be able to have, and I am a much better mother then to do something silly like that...

Okay, I am sure there are more, but that's all I got for now. Hope you had fun reading! :0)
By the way, we had a fun-tablous weekend... pictures will be here soon!

Too funny! I have never given my children anything they were not supposed to play with (to keep them quiet) either.

I am sure glad you DIDN'T do any of those things!! Like giving into your kids just to get them to be quiet... Good thing you DIDN'T!

I DIDN'T decide to read NOT ME MONDAY posts instead of deal with my messy house... nope that would be irresponsible... NOT ME!!
