NOT ME, Monday!

The following, entirely charming post is brought to you in the McMama spirit...

On Sunday, I did not abandon my youngest daughter to her Father who had to teach a lesson in church simply b/c I could not handle feeling completely conspicuous sitting in the front of Relief Society with her trying to pull down the tablecloth again!

Today I did not wallow and allow my children to watch hours on end of DVDs (including the classically violent Tom & Jerry) while I stalled reading my scriptures...

then I did not send all the kids outside for "recess" BEFORE feeding anyone lunch...

I did not get in the car leaving my 5 children at home alone (with the baby sleeping) to drive down the street and retrieve the almost 5 year old's shoe that her brother threw over the back fence b/c I am too lazy to figure out how to get it otherwise...

also I did not tell my 10-year old we could make sausages for breakfast then conveniently forget until after lunchtime...

I am a wonderful mother who never makes my children run away crying and always nurses the baby within seconds of her signing "milk"...

And I did not emotionally blackmail my sweet husband into coming home an hour early because I DON'T hate Mondays...

and I did not already repost this twice b/c I keep remembering how horrible I can be...

whew, glad I'm not that mom!

(tomorrow will be better, as usual)

CALL if you need something on my side of the fence. I am no longer a prisoner of small children!

Sounds like quite a day!! I feel like that sometimes and I only have one child - I can't imagine 5!!
