“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.”
Good Monday morning, y'all! This week I decided to mix my "Not me!" Monday post up, and write a "Not My Child!" entry. I think that I was a fabulous mother this past week ((ahem)) and would rather focus on the HI-larious shenanigans of my little two year old. If you're familiar with our family or our blog, you know that William is a spunky, free-spirited, toddler that loves to make people laugh. This post is all about things that William may (or may not) have done this past week:
**First off, my son was not persistent in asking me to paint his big toes while giving myself a pedicure. Furthermore, he did not insist on wearing his camo flip-flops all. week. long. No, no, no! Not my child!
**William did not learn a new trick this week: eating Pez straight out of the dispenser without using his hands. This trick was not taught to him by his father, nor are we banking on it getting him into an Ivy League school. Ha! Not, my child!
**My child did not run into the room with my breast pump over his mouth, pretending it was his inhaler mask. I did not laugh my head off and call his father before telling him not to play with such things. Nope, not us!
**William did not shamelessly try to "pick up" a 5 year old at story time last week. He did not slyly make his way over to her by sliding down the false-wood bench. He also did not try and hold her hand several times, with her looking at me like, "lady, get your baby off of me!". No, not William!
**Finally, my child has not been wearing a bucket on his head for the past two mornings. He does not try to drink his juice while wearing it, nor did he run into the door post 5 minutes ago. Not my child!
((The following is not proof that my son is a bucket-head))
I'm a 25 year old mother of two, just trying to bring my children up "right" in this crazy world. I love my children, my husband, and my Lord. I'm a huge advocate for natural childbirth and breast feeding, and would love to become a doula when my daughter, Madelyn, is a little older.
