Well, first off, I have NOT missed over a month of Mondays of doing my NOT ME Monday posts!
I did NOT allow J3 to consume 1/3 a bag of ruffles chips and over 1/2 a container of french onion dip just because it was keeping him quiet. I am NOT that desperate for a little peace and quiet that I would allow my child to do something so “un-nutritional”!! I have much better ways of keeping my kids occupied!
In my attempts to return my kids playroom back to a happy and fun place I did NOT paint it the brightest turquoise blue that I could find! I know I was desperate to totally change the look of the room that my kids had to give up so that it could temporarily become their grandfather’s bedroom while he was under hospice care. But I would NOT go so overboard that the adjoining bathroom now glows blue, even with the door closed. And I did NOT buy a polka dot and striped comforter set to go on the bed in that room. When I revealed the new playroom to my kids they did NOT respond by gasping and covering their eyes. I would never have picked a color THAT bright!!!
And finally, I did NOT bribe my two oldest children with money to spend at the school store if they would just get dressed quickly in the morning and not fight. I know I was tired, and their dad had gone into work early leaving me alone to get them on the bus. But I would NEVER resort to bribery. I mean, that is just not right.
I have several ideas for posts this week!! One on parenting, another one about my father-in-law, and one about “what I’ve done right” which will follow up on my Mommy guilt post. Ideas are NOT my problem, time on the other hand is!!
