Not Me! Monday

Another Monday, another chance to show my true self, the MckMama way.

I DID NOT hear M4 fervently pray thanking God that Mommy let him play on the computer all day long. And Don and I certainly DID NOT laugh at him (albeit under our breath) while he was praying. We know better than that. And have reprimanded our other children for laughing at fervent prayers. We would NOT be such a bad example. Besides, he didn't REALLY get to play on the computer ALL DAY.

I DID NOT actually consider getting a motorized cart to do Christmas shopping in Target because I had worn myself out shopping in the Christian Book Store. And if I had actually considered it, I would have talked myself out of it for fear of running over M4 whilst trying to drive the thing.

And becuase I was so tired I definitely DID NOT set a Guiness World Record for checking out at Target SIX DIFFERENT TIMES without leaving the store. You know, there's electronics and Starbuck's and Starbuck's again and electronics again and the snack bar and the regular check out line.

I HAVE NOT had to explain multiple times to M3 what it means in the Christmas carol by line that says, "Mom and Dad can't wait for school to start again" and reassure her that I am not one of 'those' parents . How did she even hear that line to begin with?!? I never knew they said that in that "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas"!!

What did you NOT do this week?

They call me mommy said...

hahah!! I hadn't thought of that song line in awhile. I bet if my almost 9 yr old heard it, he'd think of us the same way!

It gets worse as you get older. A mind is a terrible thing to lose. I don't have chemo brain,but dad said that stuff does a number on you. I do understand. Take care. You are loved. Teresa

Target is really a good store for Christmas shopping.

I found you from MckMama's blog.
I've read most of your blog and just wanted you to know that I'm praying for you.

That is SO weird. Brittany heard that line in the song at the beginning of December. It bothered her all season that is was only "beginning" to look a lot like Christmas yet they were already ready for school to start again. She kept saying but it's only beginning, and we're still in school, and... and... I tried to tell her..."it's just a song" but she wasn't buying it!
