A List Maker's Life: I'd Like to Blame This on the Many Middle of the Night Crib Parties I've Been Invited to Recently

I'd Like to Blame This on the Many Middle of the Night Crib Parties I've Been Invited to Recently

Who would hide herself, her kids, and her cart behind the end cap in the grocery store to avoid a friendly conversation with an acquaintance? (Pretty bad, even if we were approaching melt down hour)

Who would tuck her kids into bed last night knowing full well that they hadn't brushed their teeth, but not wanting to drag them back downstairs to do so?

Who would pretend not to know the noisy kids traipsing through the library with their daddy, so as not to be the one to get the dirty look from the librarian?

Who would forget she put her son in time out until he calmly asked for a Kleenex many minutes later?

Who would turn two pages of the eye spy book at a time to save herself from finding every stinkin' missing picture?

Certainly, not ME!

  1. Lol. Cute Not Me's. No worries, everyone hides in stores at some point. People always tend to run into at the most inopportune times. Hope you get some rest after all those crib parties.
