Not my child Monday: sit down

One night our family was traveling home from an evening of shopping in a nearby city. Both of our kids ride in car seats, and as we barreled down the high way, I realized Keagan's straps were not properly clicked together. So, I unbuckled my own seat belt, got up on my knees, and turned around to face him in the back seat.

As I leaned across the console and clicked his top strap in place, he pulled his finger up into my face, pointing it straight at my nose.

"Mommy. You sit down. Did you hear me?" [turning finger at his own nose now] "Are you listening? I said sit down."

To avoid the "laughing will only make him do it again" dilemma, all I could do was, well, turn around and sit down.

Surely that was not my child, right?


Goodnessmercysweetbelievin' I really sound like that?

I need more coffee.

"Not Me! Monday" and "Not my child Monday" were created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what her kids and everyone else's kids surely didn't do this week.

Peace of Christ to you,


  1. I think that story is so funny!

    It actually reflects very well on you as a Mum.

    If he told you to "get your no good ar** back in your seat this bloomin minute or he would beat the holy **** out of you" then you would have to rethink your parenting strategies!
