Not Me My Child! Monday!

Did you almost die of embarrassment when your child pulled their own pants down at the library? Want to scream bloody murder when your toddler took a pair of scissors to the dog's fur? Feel like a terrible mother when your kid said a four-letter-word at a back to school event? Well don't! Mothers aren't perfect and neither are children. Let's 'fess up today because it's Not my child! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else's children have not been doing this week.

Sound liberating? Then let's get going!

We did NOT have to leave the playground approximately 3 seconds after arriving because Sarah got stung by a yellow jacket.

After waiting in line for a roller coaster at Cedar Point, my husband did NOT have to get out of line (just mere feet away from getting on the ride) with one of our dear children to use the facilities. They had NOT just used the facilities prior to getting in line. Nope! Not my kids! They have much more bladder control than that!

Sarah and Emily were NOT concerned when their soccer coach told them they were going to play a game at practice in which the monster was going to try to take their ball away from them.

My 4 year old did NOT attempt to play soccer face down on the soccer field.

We did NOT have to abruptly leave the church picnic because Rachel fell off the speeding merry-go-round onto the not-so-soft gravel. Her knee does NOT have a gash so deep that we were considering taking her to the ER.

We did NOT need to look up the number for poison control while tending Rachel’s wound because Emily did NOT get a hold of something she shouldn’t have been playing with.

I’m so glad these things did NOT all happen in the last week, because I would be thoroughly exhausted if they had!

DISCLAIMER: No animals were harmed in the making of the information for this post. However, several children were, but thankfully they are all doing just fine now.

We've had to call the poison control center more than once in our parenting years!

I have poison control on speed dial on our phone. :)

I also have to say that our children would NEVER have to use the facilities a mere minutes after using them!! Did I mention that we are going to be driving 14 hours one way next week?? *sigh*
