Not Me Monday

"It is quite refreshing for me to admit that I am not super mom, while still hiding a little bit behind the guise of Not Me! I hope you'll consider joining in this week yourself."

I have never done this before but in my exhaustion the last couple of weeks I have had many "Not Me" moments and I thought that it would be fun to share because I am not super mom either. I am just trying to survive life with 4 kids and special needs!

During Makenzie's second ABM session I was just focusing on her and not trying to write a fundraising letter.. nope not me.

I surly wasn't going to bring my computer with me to a session to work on that letter. Nope not me.

After getting half way into downtown on our way to the appointment, where I was not going to work on that said letter while Makenzie had an ABM lesson, I didn't have a panic attack thinking I had left my computer on the front porch... not me... no way!

Then it surly wasn't me who turned the car around causing Makenzie to miss ABM only to get home and find my computer sitting safely on my desk. Nope not me!

It also would not have been me who washed the same load of laundry 3 times this week because I got too busy or just plain forgot I was doing laundry. Not me.. who has four kids and forgets they are doing laundry? Not me!

Then today it wouldn't have been my kid that kicked his shoes off at the door sending one flying into the carbon monoxide detector causing it to go off blaring the most horrible sound all through out the house. Oh no... not my kid.

He also didn't take that same alarm straight out the back door and throw it into the snow. Nope!

There is no way I yelled at him for throwing the $50 alarm into the snow and ruining it. Nope not me.

I didn't take it back out of the snow into the front yard to try and get the blaring alarm to stop without success, only to snap the button on the front off. Ya know the piece that lets you reset it. Nope not me.

Still blaring in my ears, there is no way that my neighbors came out to see what the heck was going on. My life is NOT that comical!

It was not me that had no clue how to make it stop.

I could feel myself going deaf. So is surly wasn't me who ordered my son to go find a hammer.

He wasn't at all excited to be told to demolish the loud, beeping, neighbor gathering, box.

I would also be lying if I told you that it was silenced after only one quick swoop of a metal hammer! AHHHHH silence.

None of that has ever gone on in my house. Not My Life! LOL

Makenzie continues to do so well. All of the chaos in my life is so worth it. At the end of the day when I lay down with her,all busyness just fades away! I look into her eyes. WE sing Jesus loves me. Yes Makenzie sings with me... it is the cutest thing ever! I tell her I love you. She tells me I love you back in her own sweet little voice and way, and I lay her down to drift off to sleep! She is SO WORTH it! Thank You Jesus for giving me all four of my kids! Chaos and ALL!

Believe... Prayer Works!

OK - I am new to your blog and I have to laugh at the post part about the detector being thrown into the snow! As I have a son who has sensory issues it sounds like something he would do! I will continue to read through your beautiful blog! May God Bless you again today with such great words!
