“Not Me” Post – A post where I make you feel like you have it all together by bravely confessing some of our family’s faults, failings, or quirks by denying them.
Last week, when cutting Valor’s (1) hair, I did not forget which side it is supposed to part and so give him a haircut that is better suited to a mohawk than to any other hairstyle.
Of course he never has an attitude to go with it.
No way, not him.
When the seasons changed here in Knoxville I promptly switched out the children’s seasonal clothes. I did not forget to switch Savannah’s (9) clothing and so, obviously, she does not come out day after day wearing winter sweaters with summer shorts.
We did not dedicate an entire section of our yard for Colby (7) to ‘make things’. He has not filled that section with scrap lumber, saws, hammers, nails, etc. and used those supplies to make a ‘house’,
a table and chairs.
That part of our yard does not resemble a junk yard.
Bella (3) has not taken to carrying a big plastic, ride-on horse around the house with her doll, and of course we did not find her snuggling with it during her nap time….in Amber’s (17) bed.
Remember when Colby slept with a hamburger? Please tell me your children sleep with weird things too, or perhaps that they do not.
This is not what Bella looked like during church yesterday. When I asked her why she didn’t wear her Sunday sandals she did not answer, “Betause I like my tennis-sues better.”
No way, not my child. I always check to make sure our children are suitably dressed for Sunday worship, always.
What did your children not do this week?
