Not Me! Monday

This was actually my post for last Monday. I haven't really drummed one up for this week.

Friday wasn't a very good day for me. I was up every two hours and was extremely tired by morning I was exhausted. The kids were in a funk themselves and just didn't listen to anything. Of course I didn't have any patience either. So until I had a two hour afternoon nap, I just didn't function unless you call shedding a river of tears functioning. So I got a lot of Not Me's going on for Friday.


There is no way I would lay on the couch while my 2.5 year old emptied his own "little potty" into the toilet and then wash it out from the bathroom sink. Not me! I wouldn't be this (self imposed) confined to the couch.


Oh and something spilled on the floor but of course I cleaned that up right away.


I also wouldn't purposely let my kids sleep until 4:15 pm knowing full well this would mean they won't go to bed until late. So what does this mean? It means that I got more of a break during the day and my Wonderful Husband will probably be "daddying" with the kids while I go to bed early. I wouldn't do that (not normally). Not me!


I also wouldn't have not one, but two pair of underwear sitting on the sidewalk waiting to be sprayed out from a potty training accident. Not me! But if it were just on the side of the house sidewalk it wouldn't be as bad right?


What else? Could there be more. Oh yes I am sure there are plenty of things I wouldn't do, you know me being 36 weeks pregnant and all. I run a tight ship and my house is tidy and my kids are angels and I make "Becky Homecky" meals every night. That's just who I am, I can't help it. I never let things go.


I also never call my husband at 10 am and ask when he's coming home. Not me!

I am happy to say that this past week has been a better week. I decided I need to scale it back a little and relax!
