This week, I did NOT steal a box of the Girl Scout Cookies I bought for my Sugarbear, then stash them in the console of my minivan where I could secretly enjoy them while running my errands sans-children. (Yep, that's right. I said minivan. I rock the Caravan. That's how I roll!)
I absolutely did NOT sneak out into the carport late last night and sit in my minivan eating hidden Girl Scout cookies. In the dark. By myself.
I also did NOT think to myself while watching Johnny and the Sprites on Playhouse Disney Saturday morning, "Wow, that Johnny is actually kinda hot." If I did start to develop crushes on the stars of my children's cartoon shows, I hope that my pretend Internet friends would NOT stage some kind of cyber-intervention for me.
When the little Beast woke crying at midnight the other night, I felt nothing but sympathy and concern. I did NOT feel even the slightest hint of annoyance at having my blog time interrupted - my only moments of privacy all day since the Beast refuses to take naps anymore. Nope, I was just fine giving up me-time to rub his back until he fell asleep again.
The next day while attempting to enforce naptime, I did NOT stick a chair under the knob of the little Beast's door to keep him in his room after he did NOT knock down his baby gate, climb over his sister's gate, crawl into her crib and wake her from a perfectly peaceful sleep. And I certainly did NOT consider for a split second doing something worse than locking him in his room at that moment. A lesser mom might have, but moms as fabulous at parenting as I am never lose patience.
Well, that's all the bad behavior I'm willing to admit today, but you don't want to miss my post tomorrow when I'm giving away a $25 gift certificate in honor of the SITS Spring Fling!
