Not Me Monday, again.


It's Monday, and it's time to confess again that I am not the perfect Mother/Wife/Person. Time to be brutally honest, and live to tell about it. Please join me at MCK to read some other real life confessions.

This week, I most certainly DID NOT hide in the pantry to eat a piece of chocolate birthday cake for breakfast while my children grumbled and complained about eating cream of wheat at the breakfast table. And I didn't eat some more of that chocolate cake for dinner either.

I did not put my baby to bed in the clothes that she was to wear the next day because I would rather sleep in an extra couple of minutes. I did not pass my baby off to the first available elderly person at church so that I could worship God with my arms empty for a change.

I really really used that 4 day wait rule between trying new foods with my baby...nope, I certainly did not try out apple, pears, sweet potatoes, and peaches all in one week.

I did not wear the same shirt 2 days in a row this week. I certainly washed it. And I certainly did not throw a sweatshirt on top of it when the baby spit up on it. I would never do that! I did not just put a hat on my head to take my kid to school this morning....oh, no...I took a shower. And I certainly did not just take the garbage out to the curb this morning in my fuzzy pink bathrobe, and wave at my daughter's teacher, who coincidentally lives right next door.

I am not wearing the same sweatshirt from 2 days ago? And it's not even mine! It belongs to my husband!
I never hide good food and eat it in my bathroom with the door locked! Someone would think I have a problem! (I love your "losing brain cells comment!");)

I ate M&M's last night while watching TV with my 10 yr old, and I hid them beside me on the couch under a blankie, so he couldn't see them and I snuck every single one! LOL!!!!!!

You know, I'm not sure why I don't dress my baby in something for the next day. That would totally get me out the door quicker, then again her diaper would probably leak...

Too funny!! Love the one about taking the trash out!

Aren't you suppose to wear the same thing two days in a row? I certainly don't have the same clothes on I wore yesterday.

I love this Monday, not me thing.
I just grinned when I read about hiding to eat the chocolate cake for breakfast. That's a real mom type thing, ya know.
