Here it is...that time again....Not Me! Monday. If you are interested in what everyone one else is not up to this week, head over to MckMama's blog and be prepared to spend a few hours reading.
I am not the mother who actually considers leaving her 3 year old daughter home alone each afternoon when she is sound asleep and I have to go pick up Jaquelyn. I don't try to justify it by thinking about the fact that Taylor and Teresa will be home 10 minutes after I leave. (I don't actually do it but I think about it every time). I am also not the mother who leaves Rebecca asleep in the van while I walk up to the door at the school and holler for Jaquelyn to get her tush in the car.
My husband and I are not the awful parents you heard about who convinced their 9 year old to drink sugar and vinegar to get rid of her hiccups. We would never do something like that. (it worked..they went away..probably because of all the gagging that followed.)
I do not keep a handheld electronic Yahtzee game in my van to play when I am stopped at a stoplight. That would be dangerous and unsafe.
I did not get my children's pictures taken on the wrong day so I was unable to take advantage of the BOGO coupon I had for portrait sheets. I did not then spend twice as much as I should have for their pictures.
When my husband was using one of Jaquelyn's hangers to try to get something out of the bathtub drain, some of the plastic covering came off the hook part, which was the only part he had unbent. When he said he needed something longer, I told him that he could unbend the whole thing because I wouldn't use that hanger in case the kids got hurt from it. The truth is NOT that I actually wouldn't use it because it wouldn't match the other hangers anymore.
