Not Me! Monday

Our 3 youngest children seem to be getting up quite often during the night, for one reason or another...potty, lost nuk, wants to nurse, etc...and since I have so much patience and never want to just ignore them so I can continue sleeping, I don't ever make a ridiculous statements or suggestions. Like I totally did not just tell Caedmon to "wipe it on his shirt" when he came into our room during the night whining because he needed a kleenex. I mean, that would be gross and would be teaching him bad manners so I would have never suggested (or demanded!) that just so I didn't have to get up and get him a kleenex..nope! Not me!

I did not leave my jar of homemade jam out on the counter for an extra few mins after making sandwiches so my 2 year old could find it and eat half the jar! Nope! Not me!

I also would never give in to my children who were asking for ice cream first thing in the morning. I mean who would give their children ice cream at 7:30AM after they were done with their breakfast just to get them to hush up! Nope! Not me!

And while I was at the thrift store in town browsing, I totally did not find a skirt that I donated to them only to decide that I actually did like it and that I wanted it back. So there's no way that I spent $2.50 to buy back one of my own skirts. Nope! Not me!

What haven't you done this week?

Not Me Monday is a blog carnival created by McKMama. Check out her blog to see what others haven't been doing.

Too funny about buying back your old skirt...at least you were supporting a good cause! I've never told my kiddos to use their sleeve as a tissue either:)
