Oh yes, friends. It's that time of week that I look forward to so much. I just have to thank MckMama for this free therapy that comes around ever week. I do love it so... This week, it's our "Vacation Edition"!
I did not intentionally get my kids up at 4 am to leave for vacation this week. I did not do it under the pretenses that they would sleep in the car for the first couple of hours of our 10+ hour trip. I was not extremely exasperated at those kids who were ripped from their beds at such an early hour when they would not go back to sleep in the car for 2 1/2 hours. I did not curl up with my pillow and let our driver (otherwise known as my husband!) deal with the cranky kids. I would never do that!
I did not teach my 2 year old how to cross the street. I did not have to be reminded by him several times to "Stop!" when we got to the edge of the road through the campground. I apparently did not learn my lesson, because I did not get lectured by my two year old yesterday when crossing the parking lot at church.
I did not make the same mistake that I made last week. I did not forget to buckle in my two year old again. I did not discover this mistake once we'd made it to our next destination. I do not need to come up with a mental check list for when loading the kids into the car....
I was not thrilled to hear my near one year old say his first word this week. I did not interpret his mumblings to mean "bear". I was not so excited that I kept on saying it and pointing to the painting of the bear in our cabin that he finally did say "bear". I do not keep asking him, "Grayson, where is the bear?" now that we are home because I find it funny to have him look around the room for that same painting.
I did not laugh hysterically at my near one year old, when he decided to eat a mound of wet sand at the beach this past week. I did not laugh, grab the camera and take several pictures, and laugh some more before I actually stopped him. I would never do that!!
Lastly, I did not add my name to the MckLinky this week before my Not Me! Monday post was completed because I saw that I could make it to number 11! I always post before adding my name....
