not me monday

Not Me Monday is brought to you by one of my favorite blogs, My Charming Kids. This is a place where blog mamas can unite together and confess all their imperfections as moms, you know... all the things we would NEVER really do! ;)

I will start off by saying I absolutely would never use my pregnancy as an excuse to eat the dessert picture below. No way, no how! And I totally wouldn't have eaten it for say, three days in a row. That would be just excessive. I never would have justified it by drinking milk and counting the raspberries as fruit serving either. Nope! Not me!

Being an attentive, always on the ball mother, I never would have been so distracted by blogging that my daughter would have had enough time to color all over herself while sitting within inches of me. Not me, I keep an eye on my children at all times.

And in preparations for the Fourth of July, I would never have gone as far as tying red ribbons in Sass' navy blue crocs. Absolutely not! I didn't dress her in red, white and blue as many days as I could this past week just so she could wear them either. That would be way too thematic and bring me back to my first grade teacher days. I'm so not that cheesy!

I absolutely did not condone my brother bribing my 4 year old with $10 to go down the water slide at his neighborhood pool. I didn't encourage it either by explaining to said 4 year old that $10 was enough to buy a new lego set later and I would never had gone as far as telling him I would take him to Target that afternoon to use his $10 towards said Legos. The above mentioned 4 year old didn't ride the slide a thousand times after that because he loved it so much either. Surely you can see the fear in his face.

And lastly, (be grateful I have no pictures of this one), I most definitely didn't try to tiny a URL of directions to our community center this past week and email the link to my friends to only find out that I didn't send them a link to the community center after all.... the link surely wouldn't have directed my friends to an exotic site instead. I absolutely did not laugh so hard that I cried when they called to tell me what I did, sending dirty links on accident is not funny! They would never now refer to music time at the community center as "dirty music time" and I'm sure they will stop teasing me about sending out dirty emails sometime soon!
(PSA: does NOT create 100% unique URLs, learn from my mistake and use instead and always check your tiny link before sending it or publishing it anywhere!).

Well, that's it! My dirty laundry is aired! Are you brave enough to share yours this week.... come on, you can do it!

Hopping from MckMama's blog, just love the tiny url thing! I hope they let you forget about it soon, I mean, after you are appropriately teased about it! I can so see that happening to me!

I love that Gracie colored herself while you were sitting inches away! That just "never" happens at my house :)
