Yup, it's Monday...again (I really wish weekends could last forever...but, alas, Monday always comes)...time, once again, for Not Me! Monday! Check out MckMama's blog (the mastermind behind this fabulous, free therapy) and see what else people have been, er...I mean haven't been doing!
We did not learn a life lesson this week...and if we did learn a life lesson, it certainly wouldn't go along with this story: Four cranky, overtired children do not make great company for 8pm mass. Late, which seems to be our style, we were and my wonderful Mr. Wonderful leads us all to the front of church. And I'm talking front, as in, you can't get any fronter, front. Church has already started (did I mention we walked all the way to the front of church?) and we cozy ourselves in. Immediately Tiny Girl begins to demonstrate her, um...assertiveness (who the heck did she get that from!?). Screeching, as she prefers most to verbalize, we catch the attention of the elderly priest (who, smiles as he looks upon our family...and we, with gritted teeth, smile back). He gets up to begin the gospel reading as my hubby pops Tiny Girl's nuk into her mouth (a sad attempt to keep her quiet), and the priest says (jokingly) "Well, give her the cigar and she quiets down!" Embarrassment. So, T.G is good for a bit, then starts up again with the screeching...Mr. Wonderful decides enough's enough and gathers her up to take her to the back of the church (btw...I meant to tell you that we were in the front of the church...oh, I did tell you that? Sorry...). The priest is about to begin his homily as Mr. W and T.G are leaving and he murmurs into the microphone, "Looks like she won." Complete and utter embarrassment. No, lesson learned it was not. Uh, uh...no way. And besides, my children are angels, I would never have a child create a scene such as above...Not Me!
I am not PMSing...and it has never crossed my mind to just have another baby to be without PMS for months and months and months. In this lovely PMS state that I was not in, I did not eat more than my fair share of supper (T-bones, corn on the cob, creamy cucumbers)...and, in fact, deny my child the "best part" of the T-bone, eat 3 cobs of corn and multiple servings of cucumbers. Oh, no! In fact, that's not all that I didn't eat...then I didn't have popcorn, premium M&M's, Trolli Gummy Rocks, and more M&M's...'cuz there "wasn't anything else to eat". No, I never pig out and stuff myself sick with food...never!
Whoa...those were a couple of long stories that happened...I mean, didn't happen recently! I'll leave it at that, friends! Enjoy your week!
