Not My Child Monday!

Just for this week, we are switching Not Me Monday up to Not My Child Monday!
Next week I'll tell you that it wasn't me not telling on my children like this. 

It was definitely not my four year old child who put up his hand with a peace sign and said loudly, "Peace out, sucka!" NOOOO! Not my child. My child is not around any older children who might teach him such a thing. Plus, my children are respectful and well-mannered all the time and have incomparable intuition about what kinds of words and phrases are appropriate to repeat. 

My child did not request to bring a nearly full bucket of popcorn home from the movies and then certainly didn't convince me that it would not spill everywhere and then did not proceed to nearly dump the bucket in the driveway. No way! Not even for a second was that my child.

Oh, and another thing, my children would never beg me for a Slip and Slide at Target and then proceed to break it within the first ten minutes of use. They would not for a minute think it might be cool to twist the tube that the water goes through and watch it get bigger like a water balloon. Not My Children! They are too smart for that. Of course, they would realize that this would pop the tubing and therefore break their new toy. So, they would never do that.


And we would never see anything like this at our house. I don't know whose child this could be!


What kind of mother let's her child wear snorkel gear while eating lunch? There is certainly no kind of silly behavior like that at my house.  Nope, we are completely civilized. No funny business here.



This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what her and everyone else's children have not been doing this week. Oh, and if you are stopping by via MckMama, please be sure to leave a comment so I can come by and visit you too!

Oh good...my kids aren't the only ones who think it's funny to twist the hose on the slip n slide creating a ridiculous water balloon! Now I can stop worrying....

Too funny. And such a coincidence that those crazy snorkel-wearing children look like the ones in your sidebar pictures. Good thing they're not actually related, right?

Oh, another mom with 4 sons! I guess that's why I did NOT relate to your post so well! I'm gonna have to start following you now- I need a mom who "gets" it.

Thank you for the laughs! I wouldn't happen to know any children who behaved in a similar fashion... :)

My boys broke their slip n slide the first time they used it too!! They should really make those things more boy-proof! Cute pic!

Lena said...

Your boys are adorable, offcourse they would never do anything like that! :)))
