Not Me Monday


I don't convince my kids that cereal is a great dinner or lunch.  I don't let them survive on Lucky Charms because I am not hungry...because I am lazy....  and do not want to make a mess in the kitchen.  Nope, that's not me!

I haven't been taking every chance I can get to go through toy bins to toss things that are broken, from McDonalds, or are just a waste of space.  Nope, not me!

My husband and I didn't race to put the two crabbiest boys to bed last night so we could sit on the couch and play Super Mario Cart wii together...for 2 hours.  Nope not us!

I don't head to the library with my kiddos, getting them all excited to check out new books, with only 8 dollars in my pocket...thinking I can pay down a late fee so that we can still check out books.  When arriving I didn't get a $45 late fee fine at the library...which means $8 isn't going to bring it down under $10 so we can check out books.  Yeah, I don't ever lose books or return them late.  I don't have to tell my children we can't check out books today and have to leave carrying my crying two year old who is devastated he can't check out the Dora book he has in his hands... Nope, not me!

I don't begin each week doing a Monday morning grocery shop at 8:45 with my two year old.  And no he doesn't demand the free Target cookie immediately upon entering the store.  And I don't deny him the cookie because it isn't even 9am, because cookie in hand means happy mama shopping.  Nope, not me!

You need to go to my library! They never charge for late fees on books, magazines, anything paper; and it's only a nickel a day on electronic check-out materials! Then again, they NEVER seem to be open, so it's nearly impossible to check out OR return items in the first place!

I so feel you on the library fine thing...although I haven't been rejected checking any out b/c of fines. Now, I am nervous!!! =o)

My boys love to eat middle son has asked for it for lunch three times in the last week! I love the free cookie at Target too...even if it is way too close to breakfast time:)
