Not Me! Monday

Okay, this is going to be fun. I have recently become what feels like the last person on the planet to discover a fellow heart mom's uber-popular blog mycharmingkids.net. And when I say popular, I mean popular. This woman has pay-for-space sponsors, was just today the subject of an article in The Boston Herald, and recently celebrated her 10 millionth (yes, millionth) hit. Her posts inspire more comments than most articles in the New York Times and she has a super fun tradition that I think is going to be totally liberating for me.

Every Monday this darling, brutally honest momma reveals (and challenges fellow bloggers to do likewise) something we, of course, would never do (but have somehow done). The practice is called Not Me! Monday. So here goes my first attempt.

I always have a perfectly kept house (read: the Health Department would not take my kids away (most days) should they stop by to do a surprise inspection). I would never allow any room, especially a critical, high-use space like the master bathroom to resemble a war zone. I would never keep said room in such a perpetual state of disarray that when I finally cleaned it up from time to time my children ask, "What happened in here. Where is all your stuff?" No. I would never have a room like that. Not me!


Whew. Now you know one of my deepest, darkest secrets. That means we're practically best friends. Wasn't that fun? Your turn.

Scroll my blog, Mind. There's oodles and oodles of photos of the disasters also known as my house. Glad you're keepin' it real!

I didn't know you needed those products too, to make you as beautiful as you are inside and out.

I thought that was my bathroom for a second ;)

No! I don't believe it! I'm glad you have one flaw! You make me laugh!

That is so not your bathroom, I don't believe it for one second. I have just stopped by a few times, that in no way resembles your house. Hhmmm?

So, were you getting ready, hurry and took the picture, and then cleaned it all up as usual? By the way, LOVE the cabinets, did you build those with the house?
