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.
This has NOT been a crazy/amazing/confusing/intense week.
This is the week of MomFail at my house. Let me tell you exactly what I mean.
I did not let Lorelli have popcorn and chips and salsa for dinner one night. This is what she asked for and what she was wanting. I,of course, make sure she has a very well balanced meal for dinner every single night. Two veggies, a starch, and some sort of protein are required and always present at our table.
I did not send my daughter to the babysitters in shoes with no socks because there no clean socks to be had. I am always on top of the laundry. You would know this if you read my blog on a regular basis. And I, of course, set out her clothes the night before which OBVIOUSLY led me to the realization that she had no clean socks. Which then IMMEDIATELY prompted me to don my Suzy Homemaker hat and throw some laundry in the wash.
While at the grocery store this week I did not threaten to break all of my daughters fingers offf if she could not keep her hands off of things on the shelves. I have infinite storws of patience and would never let a busy day at work carry over into my personal life. Especially not onto the angelic being that God has so blessed my life with.
I also did not tell Lorelli, a mere 2 days later, that if she didn't straighten up I was going to leave her at the devil store and let the nice couple right there in the chip aisle take her home with them.
And, last but not least by ANY means...I did not get scolded by my crying child becauseI most assuredly did not snatch the grocery sack from her hands and push her out of the way because she was whiny and crying and not putting away the vegetables like I had asked her to. She did not tell me through her big tears, "You are not supposed to push me, Mommy. You are just supposed to say please move and I will just move for you."
