Not Me Monday



Ok, here we go. Another round of "Not me!" Monday. Hopefully next week I won't have anything to "not confess".

I was not the one that snuck up behind one of my daycare kids, grab him and scream "BOO!" It was not me that laughed hysterically when he jumped out of his pants, threw both arms in the air which made his matchbox cars fly across the room.

I certainly wouldn't have reduced myself to fits of giggles all week day long when thinking back and remembering how bad I scared him. I also wouldn't be proud of the fact that he will probably need counseling after being in my care.

Since we do not ever except in times of desperation eat in the van than I wouldn't have been the one to feed my kids animal crackers while driving home from soccer practice. Did you see the mom throwing handfuls of animal crackers, over her shoulder, in the general direction of her kids, while driving? Well, that wasn't me.

When one of my teenage sons Joseph rudely suggested to his brother that he had ADHD I did not spout off and tell the offender Joseph that he had ABH. I do not like to label my kids within earshot of anyone else.

When my son Joseph did not know what ABH meant, I did not gleefully inform him that it meant Arrogant Big Headedness. I am most certainly not smart mouth and mean like that.

Whew...in comparison to "Not Me", my week was very uneventful!
