"Not me!" Monday is when I take the chance to document things that I would not ever do. These are some things I definitely did not do this week:
I have not been obsessing about my abilities as a mom ever since my son told me he loved Daddy more. It has not bothered me one bit. I know that would be childish. I would not let something like that bother me- not me!
Early in the week I found out that my husband loves the soda Squirt. He claimed it is one of his favorite drinks. We have been married for 13 years and I never remember him savoring one Squirt drop. I did not make a big deal about this. I did not post a status on about this on Facebook hoping to get comments from non-Squirt lovers. I’d love for you to comment on this post if you don’t like Squirt. I am not still trying giving my husband a hard time—no way, not me!
I did not finish off the rice krispy treats this morning that I planned to have as a treat for the kids today. I did not think to myself: “they are cut so small, the boys would have been disappointed.” I couldn’t have had that yummy treat with my coffee- not me!
I did not take a nap on Sunday afternoon. I could not have been that worn out. I did not say, “No, I don’t like to take naps” all the way to my bed. I couldn’t have woken up feeling refreshed – that couldn’t have happened to me, not when I had so much on my to do list.
I was not just crawling on all fours chasing a giggling little one year old. I was not playing like that when my kitchen is a mess, my room needs cleaning, and I have laundry to do. I couldn’t imagine just simply enjoying every second of it, either—nope, not a bit- not me!
