'Not Me' Monday!


Are you feeling guilty for leaving the windows open to catch a breeze when you know the air is on? Feel like a bag lady for wearing the same shirt for days on end? Get tricked by a fake news story and feel foolish? We'll don't! Not Me! Monday was born out of my desire to admit some of my imperfections and reveal a few moments I'd rather forget. You may find it therapeutic to join in and do the same thing!
Head over to Mckmama's blog to see why everyone else isn't perfect!
I didn't go all week without groceries and scrounge for things to eat for lunch and dinner every day. I did not end up using all the fruit in the house, for the kids for lunch. I did not drink milk with lunch everyday, just to have enough milk, for the kids, for the whole week.
I did not rearrange the playroom again, just for my own rearranging sake. Who would ever rearrange their playroom that many times in a month? Not me!
I would never text my mom and dad and tell them I was craving broiled fish and ask them if they could cook it sometime this week and have us over for dinner. I did not list a few other things, in the texts that went back and fourth, that I was craving, that I know my mom just makes better than me, that I would love to have.
I would never put on a movie for the kids to watch on Saturday morning, so that I could write some post and catch up on some blog reading. Even if I did, I would never ever ask Abby to try to wipe herself, so that I could finish the thought that I was writing.
I did not go to bed last night at 9:00 and I would never dream of taking with me a cup of coffee, 1/2 a Butterfinger candy bar and a double chocolate chip cookie. I was not so stressed out, that I just needed to try and eat/drink some of it away.
I am not prefect, someday I will realize that! Now you know some of my imperfections!

This is CUTE!!!!! Great idea! I hate grocery shopping! The cupboards are always bare before I make that trip!

really cute post! I am totally with you on the grocery shopping things... sometimes it is easier to make use of things in the back of the pantry... we are having one of those weeks! :)

I hate grocery shopping. I try to avoid it as much as possible, but then I guess we'd go hungry if we didn't shop. I totally relate.

Don't you love how we can slip ideas in our parents heads and they take care of them for us :)

Great post! Love that you asked Abby to "try to wipe herself" HILARIOUS! I can totally relate to asking your mom to cook for you. When I was pregnant I would invite my parents over for dinner and then casually mention that they would be "passing by" my favortie restaraunt and would they mind just picking up takeout????? You can get away with so much more when you're pregnant.....
