Not Me Monday!

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.

I did NOT tell a friend at my new kickboxing class that I had to leave early in order to give my kids a bath.  Then while walking out I did not see two 60 year old women barely sweating keeping up with the instructor and decide to stay.  I am much more in shaped than them. 

While talking to a friend he mentioned that he had never in 9 years seen the inside of my husband and I’s bedroom.  I did NOT lie to him and tell him it was because our dogs are always in there when people come over.  I do NOT throw all the unfolded laundry, extra toys, and anything else in there before friends come over. 

Not Me Monday

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.

I have Not stayed up until midnight each night this week playing the wii and trying desperately to beat my husband at bowling.  I have not gotten a little upset when during the day my 5 year old daughter ends up beating me in bowling also.  I am not that competitive!

When my 2 year old asked me what cookies make you, I did NOT tell her fat and then precede to eat 6 of them.  I did NOT tell her she was only allowed to eat 3 (after she watched me inhale mine) because they were not good for her.  I have way more self control than that.

I did NOT make my 5 year old wear a pair of dirty socks to school the other day .  I am NOT that behind on my laundry (because of the wii) .  That would be gross. 

I did NOT just burn the girls’ breakfast for the second time this week because I was trying to blog.  I would NEVER put my blog before them.

Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments?

~  As my husband was putting our youngest (2) to bed the other night, I heard her tell him in her sweetest voice,  “Daddy, I love you but I don’t like you.”

 ~  We were driving home last night from my oldest daughter’s gymnastics class (5) and talking to the girls about what games we were going to play for our weekly game night.  Ashlyn shouted from the backseat “listen people, here is the plan.”  Such a little leader!

~  Here is some advice that I learned this week.  Never give your OCD child Days of the Week panties.  She will refuse to wear any other kind.

Here are some more great Friday fragment posts here

Emily’s Prayer

I thought since I posted Ashlyn’s prayer I would post Emily’s too.  I didn’t get hers on video yet but I’m working on it.  I was tucking her in last night and asked if she wanted to pray.  Here is her simple 2 year old prayer.

“Jesus, I love you and I like you.  And you know what?….gink you that we can see you in the Bible.”

It was so sweet and sincere.  I continue to learn so much from my girls. 

Not Me Monday

~I do NOT pretend I can’t hear my daughter calling me at 2:00 in the morning to tell me she has to go to the bathroom.  And I do not act like I have no idea what my husband is talking about when he asks me about it the next day.

~I did not think about asking my husband to take me to The New Kids on the Block concert for our 10 year anniversary.

~I did not hear my 2 year old say (in a room full of people) “I don’t have to go to the bathroom Mommy.  It was just a poot.”
