Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

Not Me! Monday: A Bath Story

Click the button below to check out MckMama at My Charming Kids for More Not Me! Monday fun.


I did NOT give my son a bath with the puppy this week because Sprinkles did NOT smell like a pig. Monsoon did NOT refuse to get in the tub, NOT wearing me down to the point of NOT throwing Sprinkles in just to get him to bathe willingly. I did NOT let him help me wash her with her special doggie shampoo, and was NOT worried about hurting her puppy skin with regular soap, so I definitely did NOT just use dog shampoo on my child. No, I absolutely did NOT!

I do NOT wish I had gotten a picture, because it would NOT have gone so well with this post. I am NOT afraid you will all judge my (lack of) parenting based on this. NOT at all. Obviously, I am NOT posting this.

Not sure what kind of confession this is. Sounds more like efficiency to me. I'd be "Look at my mad water conservation skills!".
