Not Me! Monday - with a minute to spare

Oh this has been a week full of Not Me's!!

It was NOT ME that got all upset about the kids not doing their chores the night before, so I did NOT make them do their chores before school which caused them to miss the bus.

It was NOT ME that made the kids wait for the school bus in the rain (even though I knew the bus had already passed by a few minutes earlier) just to prove a point.

It also was NOT ME that took a shower and got all ready to go for the day before I went outside to drive them to school (which caused them ALL to have a tardy) just to prove they can't leave their chores behind for days on end because it obviously causes chaos and a trickle down effect among everyone in our household and makes their mother go insane.

I am NOT insane. I promise.

What about you? What did you NOT do lately?

For more Not Me! Monday "Therapy" head on over to MckMama's place.

You are such a delightfully funny girl... both in person, over IM, in e-mails and your blogs.... I look forward to hearing from you always...

Love you Lex... Liv

GOOD FOR YOU. It's so important for them to be able to feel and visualize the results of their choices... we go through that always!

It was NOT me who read this post and thought to try it at my house.

That was not me that just laughed and blew leftover cold stuff out my nose.
