A quick one, as the kids are wreaking havoc this morning...
Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This was created by MckMama, head on over to her blog to see what everyone else has NOT been doing this week!
I did NOT lie to my daughter's face this week. Since we live on the west coast, we always celebrate by attending my sis-in-law's annual East Coast New Year's party, which involves watching the ball drop in New York (at nine p.m. our time). I did NOT tell my daughter at nine that it was actually midnight and this was the real New Year. We did NOT get the kids home and into bed by ten thirty, and stay up with our friends and play Apples to Apples till one a.m. Nope, NOT me!
We went over to the house of my good friend from High School yesterday. We had a great time, and my kids were PERFECTLY behaved. There was NO WAY that it was my three year old who followed the dog into the group of adults saying goodbye, and, in front of everyone, proceeded to poke the dog directly in her bum with his finger. Like, right in the middle of the circle under her tail. Nope, NOT my son!
I do NOT love Facebook. My status this morning does NOT read:
"Yes, Ben, I understand that you were trying to help. But while I was busy cleaning poop off the baby's eyelid, deciding to clean the bathroom by throwing toilet water over the floor, walls, and cabinets was really not the most helpful activity."
This did NOT result in getting a call from my sister-in-law, who is on her way to my house right now. I am NOT thrilled at this, you know, it will be good to see her, but I DON'T need her here, since my bathroom is NOT still in the same toilet-water-covered state that it was earlier. Nope, I have NOT tried to clean it several times, with each time resulting in some injury to some child by some other child in my household. I did NOT finally decide to lock the door and walk away, in order to actually supervise the above-mentioned children.
Speaking of the children, they are NOT fighting again. No, I am ending this post at exactly the point I planned, I am NOT cutting it off early just because I have to send what sounds like about seventeen screaming children to time out. Again.
