Because of His crown, we can have ours.

“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”

James 1:12


Not Me! Monday

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.

First off, I did not plop my son in front of the TV and put on “Diego” in order to write this post. Secondly, the following may (or may not) have happened in our hectic household this week:

-While shopping for Easter candy, I certainly did not pick out all of my favorites in hopes that my son would grow to have them as his as well! I also did not chow down on Reese’s eggs last night, at 11:30, while lying in bed watching old reruns of “Friends”. Nope, not me!

-I was not the mom who was caught yelling, “do you think I would steal a kid that this bad?!”, to nosey strangers while dragging a kicking and screaming 2 year old out of the mall. I definitely did not treat myself to Wendy’s afterwards nor did I indulge in a full glass of wine at 4:00 in the afternoon. Not me!!

- This week was not my first week back to work since Madelyn’s birth (ahem…12 weeks ago) and I definitely did not miss my newborn but enjoy the break from my toddler. I certainly would not admit to such bias! Not me!

- I did not teach my son how to drive his cars on mommy’s back as a sort of pseudo-massage! Not me!

-Etsy definitely did not receive a hefty order from my username. I was not the one who ordered adorable pillowcase dresses (and matching bloomers) for my daughter. Nope, not me!

- I was not the mom who consigned my daughter’s newborn clothes rather than saving them all. I would not prefer to buy new clothes for our future children despite how wasteful that may be, and I do not want another baby already. No, no, no, not me!

-Finally, I did not snap 7 pictures of my child stuffing his face with candy over the course of our Easter weekend. Not me! (and the following are not the above mentioned images):
