Not Me Monday 3rd Edition

Again, a post inspired by the wonderful McK Mama

I did not take my kiddos to the library this week just to be able to get ice cream afterwards

I did not let the cashier at the convenience store think that my four year old needed to go to the bathroom when it was really me that was close to peeing my pants when I asked to use their employee only restroom

I did not eat 6 orange danishes yesterday (4 for breakfast and two after lunch!)

I did not pretend to go to bed early last night so I could eat ice cream in my bedroom without having to share

I did not spend most of my grocery budget this week on eating out instead of making dinner at home

I did not allow my 6 year old to make breakfast for herself and her 4 year old brother so I could sleep in today

Nope, not me!

I love the one from last week about texting in church! You had to eat the danish before they went bad, right? How helpful of you!

I use the bathroom trick all the time. I also justify taking samples at Whole Foods by saying, "oh yeah I'll just take this for A", knowing full well that she won't eat it.

6 yrs old is old enough to get some cereal, right? It's just teaching some responsibility at an early age long as she's not using the stove.

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to eat ANYTHING in the presence of children without having to share? Great blog!

I NEVER let my kids climb up to the cabinet and grab the poptarts and then send them back upstairs with the whole box just to grab a few more min sleep! NOPE NOT ME!

When Mother's Day is Hard

From the very first Mother's Day I celebrated, it has not been easy. It is hard to celebrate when you are a single momma and your child ...
