"Not Me!" Monday


Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

This week we most certainly did not have a birthday celebration extravaganza. I mean there was Dustin's 30th birthday dinner as a family, and then his and my sister Kathryn's they just really love each other that much they share the exact same birthay: August 6th extended family celebration, and then my nephew's 9th birthday bash, but that's a pretty typical weekend with a large family. Right?

I certainly wouldn't have let my children order vanilla ice cream in Krazy colors while celebrating their daddy, I mean if they wanted vanilla they can eat the plain jane, old fashioned, non-staining kind. Remember I don't like messy children, and I certainly wouldn't have encouraged it.


I wouldn't have added bubble bath to their bath water in hopes that it counted as soaping them off. Nor would I have given them a popscile in the tub just to avoid having a mess to clean up afterwards. Nope, Not Me!

On the way home from all of our partying last night we certainly wouldn't have let Brandt drive our car. I mean we are the parents that STILL have our almost 7 year old 5-point harnessed and have no plans to stop anytime soon. We certainly wouldn't have been crazy enough to let him do that. Nor would I have panicked when I realized I told Dustin to turn 1 street too soon and we were not on the tiny country road I thought, but the much larger, with more traffic Farm to Market road.
And drinking while driving, absolutely NOT!!! Eyes on the road and hands on the steering wheel at all times!

Awesome! Love the driving part, especially since you said your kids are normally in a 5 point harness. Same here!
