Not Me! Monday

So, I think I'll try this little "Not Me! Monday" thing started by MckMama here. She's fun, and there are tons of other "Not Me! Monday" stories from others to read there.

My first "Not Me! Monday" story is from our weekend getaway! As I said in my last post, we loaded up Saturday night and--as one of my friends calls it--we had a Sabbatical Sunday. I like the sound of that.

Well, Sunday morning we ate breakfast at IHOP--the only place there is to eat breakfast on vacation. (Seriously, we ALWAYS manage to find one no matter where we go.) Anyway, the hostess sat us in this big open area where there were lots of people who had no children. These people looked rather grumpy. These people glared at us a lot. These people were turned off by the fact that we had two small VERY CHATTY children under the age of 4.

What did I NOT do? Let's see...I did not stare right back at the man directly behind my husband who was telling me with his eyes to shut my little girl up when she was squawking at her chocolate milk. I did not bribe my son with what he might get later on if he would just sit down beside me like a decent, sweet, well-mannered, human child.

I also did not drop my daughter off at Life Kids with chocolate milk spilled all down her front, either.

I wouldn't do that.
I didn't do that.

And to prove it, here's a picture of how sweet my little angels were at breakfast:

So there.

Peace of Christ to you,
