not me! monday

inspired by the original not me mama!



here's what i did not do this past week

i did NOT bribe my daughter with ice cream to make her stop crying at sparks.

i did NOT let ryan eat his snack off of the living room floor since i knew it hadn't been vacuumed for about 2 weeks.

i did NOT watch 5 episodes of "i love lucy" with samantha instead of doing school for two consecutive days. nope, not me. i'm super duper stay on track homeschool mom.

i did NOT screen any of my calls or hang up right after picking up the phone just so i didn't have to hear it ring and ring. nope. not me... that would just be rude.

i did NOT put an almost full juice box (that samantha left out for hours) back in the fridge hoping that it hadn't already started fermenting.

i did NOT intentionally not wash some of ben's clothes to teach him to put them in the hamper. nope. not this wife who doesn't get annoyed picking up the dirty clothes lying on the floor right next to the hamper.

and...

i will NOT read everyone else's not me! monday posts today instead of doing laundry and dishes, vacuuming, and cleaning up the mess in the living room.

That's funny!

I also do not bribe my children with treats for being good!

What a fun blog carnival! I am definitely going to have to participate next week!

LOL I need to try that laundry one! Mine likes to leave the clothes in a pile right outside the closet door. Dude, the laundry basket is right inside. Open the door and toss them in. Not hard.

I did NOT bribe my child with a pack of gun in order to get her to take a picture with me ...

I am so glad that I am not the only wife who doesn't go crazy when the dirty clothes aren't put into the hamper... which is right beside said dirty clothes pile!

Irritates the mess out of me...

WOW, apparently someone (meaning me) had a little anger issue moment...

It has since passed - thanks for checking out my blog!

I would NOT do any of those things!!

I don't ever miss a day of homeschooling. Ever. NOT!:)

pack of gun, katie?? sounds like you threatened her rather than bribed her! :-)

Liz said...

I am also not reading everyone else's post and doing the piles of laundry.

Jessica said...

I'm confused. So did you really do these things? =) Maybe I need to be a mom to get it... =)

Jennifer said...

I also most certainly did not ditch doing housework today to spend extra time reading everyone else's not me mom posts!
