Not Me! Monday :)

It's that time of the week again! I think this is the only reason why I actually look forward to Mondays!

So, this week ~

I did not put off grading papers to spend time with my little punkins in the evenings, then have to delay sending interim reports home (that were supposed to go home two Fridays ago) until tomorrow.

I would never have not been paying attention, and flipped out at a kid because I thought he was being disrespectful to me. Then I emailed his mother to tell her how disrespectful and rude he was!!! When if I would have actually listened, how I tell my kids they need to get better at doing, I would have known he was telling a classmate to hurry up instead of being nasty to me. *I did admit my fault, and apologized to him and sent a note home admitting my fault to his mother!

I didn't take a gazillion pictures of my baby girl yesterday because she looked insanely adorable in her outfit I put her in for church.

I also didn't make her sit in church instead of going to the nursery so tons of people could see my insanely adorable child.

I have not been desperately awaiting the arrival of Thanksgiving and Christmas so I can have some student-free days.....

I have NOT been a bad mother, and not replaced any of the batteries of my childs' toys that have croaked this week. Because my ears weren't bleeding from constantly hearing "The engine on the bus goes round and round, round and round, round and round, round and round and round and round and round......................." Ahhhhhhhh sheer peace and quiet. It's nice at times!

I have not let my house get so disastrously messy that it looks like a tornado went through the entire thing. And, now it seems like it's going to take forever to get it cleaned, and I don't want to think about touching it because I know how long it's going to take to get it back in order. (Anyone know a cheap maid service??)

I did not tell my child that all of the N and Nm's were gone because I couldn't stand the fact that she was covered in colors (Melts in your mouth, not in your hands, right?), and couldn't bear to think that the colors were going to get all over her new dress!

And, last but not least, I did not tell my husband that I was "doing something for school" on the computer when he needed to use the computer to do grades when in reality I was actually looking at blogs!

It's a good thing you didn't do any of those things! I never blog and hog the computer either! NOT ME!!

I DIDN'T decide to read NOT ME MONDAY posts instead of deal with my messy house... nope that would be irresponsible... NOT ME!!
