I love Not Me! Monday created by My Charming Kids so I’ll take this time to reflect on what I did not do this past week. Please take a moment to visit MckMama’s blog to see what she has not been up to herself.
Yesterday I did not take pictures of my 18 month old son Warren tormenting my almost three year old son Lucian by sitting on him. I don’t find all this absolutely hilarious. If you were to look at the pictures below the lump in the blanket isn’t my little boy being smooshed by his younger brother who was obviously enjoying his brother’s increased immobility caused by the blanket. Nope. So I didn’t capture it on film. Never!I didn’t have both my boys sick for the past couple of days with high fevers and decreased appetite. Of course I didn’t make the mistake of letting them play when their fevers dropped and they started feeling a little better. Even if I knew they were totally going stir crazy and weren’t interested in watching anything on t.v. (of course I didn’t let them do that either!) I wouldn’t let them overdo it. This didn’t cause their fevers to spike after naps and I wasn’t feeling a little guilty for not discouraging their play.
We also didn’t make a run to Dairy Queen to buy a treat but decide to do things a little different (a.k.a. cheaper) and order two dilly bars and two buster bars. After paying more than $7 for these items I didn’t wonder why we even bothered in the first place. I didn’t regret not getting that blasted strawberry waffle bowl sundae I love so much. What happened to dilly bars being a $1?
Last night, completely frustrated with Lucian because he wouldn’t stay in bed, I didn’t trick him into believing I had a key to his bedroom door and threaten to lock him in there. I wouldn’t do that with a key to a different door to our house since I don’t even have a key to his door anyway. And it didn’t totally work. (Brilliantly, I might add…)
