Not Me! Monday


Yay for Monday! Yay for the weekend being over! Yay for getting back into routine!

Ok, fooey on all of it.

But at least I had this post to look forward to.



* I was not giddy at the thought of watching "Rock of Love" again last night. While watching it, I did not wonder how these women turned out the way they did. Did someone do horrible things to them as children? Do they think they actually look good? I also did not wonder why I wasn't blessed with perky breasts.



* I do not make my boys wear their daddy's shirt every year on their birthdays so I can take pictures. I do not plan on putting all of the pictures together in an album some day so we can reminisce about all of the times I had to bribe them with candy to get in the shirt!











* I did not let my 7 year old take a bath with his 10 month old sister. That is just wrong. He is 7. She is 10 months. He is a boy. She is a girl.





* I did not buy a huge bag of Peanut M&M's because they were such a great price at Costco. And if I were to purchase them it wouldnt be because I wanted to eat them.





* I am not avoiding the gym today because it is too cold to step a foot outside. And I would not try to use the weather as an excuse for my laziness. Nope, not me!



* I did not get extremely frustrated with Princess recently because she was whiny, cranky and crying all of the time......and then find out that she had a comb stuck in the foot of her sleeper that she was wearing. How did that get there?


* I do not deserve the Mom of the Year Award sitting on my dresser. Ok, there isn't a real award but I like to think I will get one eventually.....isn't that what being a Mom is all about? The pay cheque and the awards that go along with it?


* I have never said these words to my boys. "If you want to touch your privates, that is fine. Just do it in private."




Happy Monday folks!

Go to My Charming Kids to see the many other things that people did not do this week.

How DID the comb get in her sleeper?

Taking pictures in the Daddy's shirt every year is a very good idea!

Tee Hee!!! I have had the "privates" conversation with my daughter. UGH.

namaste said...

Oh my gosh, so great.... the "privates" thing.... that is the right thing to say so great job! However, what do you think of this. I can't believe I'm telling you this. Oh gosh. Here it goes. So, he was supposed to be doing his chores and I was gathering up laundry. His door... WAS NOT (no, really. I know it's NOT me Monday but it really really was NOT) closed. It was cracked open. So, I just walked on in. And he was under the covers (if you know what I mean) and the first words that came out of my mouth? "what the hell are you doing"? oh my. why.... why.... did I ask that. So he told me. He said "m*st*r*a*t**g" (I just couldn't say that out loud on your blog, sorry!). So then, what did I say? "WELL!!! YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE TAKING OUT THE TRASH"! Then stomped into my room and told my husband...."YOU KNOW WHAT HE'S DOING IN THERE?" And I said it... then "HE'S SUPPOSED TO BE TAKING OUT THE TRASH"!

Ok, I've abused the comments of your blog enough but had to share. Do you feel better? You haven't done ANYTHING wrong in saying what you did. I however. WOW. I'm sure he's scarred for life.

hilarious! Great not me Monday! I love the comb story, I'm a huge Rock of Love fan, and the shirt idea is fantastic!

Hey stopped in to check out you NOT ME's, love the comb in the pj's. My two year old once was having a cow at the dentist about his pants and I could not figure out what the problems was, until I found the price tag still attached and bothering his leg. I DO NOT let my children wear clothes with out wasing them first! HA!! I have caught my 4 year old touching "IT" while I am reading to him in his bed I always tell him you can do that only in your bed and only when you are alone. LOL See you around MCMAMA's Kristi

I love the comb in the sleeper. I could see something like that happening at my house!

Jessie said...

The comb in the sleeper sounds like something I would totally do! My son was whining and throwing himself around the floor a few months ago, and I was ignoring him thinking he was just tantruming over something trivial. Turned out he had cut his foot on something and it was bleeding! Yikes... not me, right? :-)

Goldylocks said...

The comb in the sleeper...too funny. I dressed on of my boys in footed jammies the other day. We were playing and I grabbed his foot wondering why it seamed so crammed in there...there was a baby sock in there from doing laundrey.

I was wondering where that sock had gone!

Great Not Me's!

I haven't had a comb in the sleeper but I have had a pacifier in the diaper! I still to this day have no idea how it happened. Since I stood her up after I cahnged her diaper and she was running around playing the whole time she didn't get REALLY upset until I sat her in the high chair for dinner. I got frustrated with her then felt HORRIBLE when I found it.

I know what you mean about the M&Ms. Good thing neither of us bought one and I DID NOT eat the whole bag this weekend!

I am so sad b/c I missed Rock of Love.
