A Good Example



Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

My heavens where does the time go? Another Monday already? Asher is 4 weeks old now! I'm sure I have a few Not Me's! somewhere so let me dig and dish!

I did not wash my bra in the shower while washing myself up too out of desperation for a clean nursing bra and then dry it in the dryer real fast. Not Me! That's just nuts!

I did not wish the lovely ladies who babysat for me would just sign up for the year and not just the week. That would be selfish and of course that would also mean other people raising my little ones and that's not cool, right? Hmmm, not me!

I did not stay up till 5am with the baby even though he slept for a couple of hours after midnight sometime and not even realize I did it until I checked the clock. I must be an absolute zombie at times! Not me!

I did not actually talk about sex with a woman I just met because she brought it up first. I have more sensibilities than that! Not Me!

I did not imagine in my mind all the things I would have liked to have said to an old lady and didn't when she commented that I better stop having kids so I can have a life. I'm an adult now so I can voice my feeligs freely, right? My childhood lessons of respect your elders had nothing to do with me being silent and just smiling. Not me!

Overall, I acted a bit like white trash last week but redeemed myself with the old lady I think. Whew, I can still be a good example some of the time! LOL

I would have had a hard time keeping my mouth shut to the old lady too! But I'm sure I would have because that' how my mom raised me to be. But on the inside, I would be giving her an earful!

Good for you for keeping it together!

Funny! It would have been hard to not give the old lady an earful back. Way to stay dignified!

Alanon is for family and friends of someone who has a drinking problem but the same practices could be applied to a drug addict, it teaches you to set boundaries and to take care of yourself in the midst of chaos, I went for years and use the ideas I learned there in every aspect of my life.

Wow, it used to be that those kind of comments (relating to children) were only made to families in the double digits. I can't believe that even the little families are now being attacked--by the old people!!! But then again these aren't Victorian grannies, they grew up in the birth control era. Sad :(
