For this edition of Not Me Monday I’ll once again take this time to reflect on what I did not do this past week.
I am a wonderful mommy who would never even dare to dream of throwing away of any of the lovely coloring and artwork my two year old son has done. Never! I know he’ll grow up to one day be Picasso and I need to have these on hand to show everyone what he was capable of at a such a young age. (Trust me, it would definitely have to be abstract since the artistic gene does not seem to be in his DNA, thanks to me.) I would just ignore the fact that many of the pieces have only a couple of scribbles on the whole page and be so proud to still have them all on my refrigerator. I would never do this but if I did I would still keep a couple, just not the dozen or so that were clipped together by a chip clip and slowly making their descent down my fridge with their weight. But of course I didn’t purge any of this artwork. Not me!
And I did not almost forget my yoga class. I also did not think about whether or not I wanted to go to yoga or get something for my noisy tummy, like Chinese. Mmmm, Chinese. I love yoga (I really do) but of course I wouldn’t ponder the idea of getting food instead of having to wait another hour by attending my lunch hour yoga class. And I definitely wouldn’t debate this for a couple of minutes until, oops, it was too late to go and oh darn, I guess I’ll just have to go get something to eat instead. I wouldn’t do that; I wouldn’t since I’m so dedicated.
I also would not after hearing the news my husband gave our two year old a chocolate chip cookie first thing in the morning, say and do nothing. I surely would have scolded him or at least given him my “Really?” look in a disapproving way.
Lastly, I certainly wouldn’t be so gross as to pick my son’s nose at Target to remove a large boogie that was driving my two year old nuts. If I did I would make sure I still had some tissues in my purse before removing this irritant and I wouldn’t find myself holding this hard, crusty little boogie between my fingertips and wishing I had a tissue. And I most DEFINITELY would not do a quick sweep of the eye to see who might be watching and then finding the coast was clear-flick the boogie onto the floor. NEVER WOULD I EVER DO THIS!! Good thing I didn’t then, right?
