Not Me! Monday

Welcome to my very first Not Me! Monday! post. This blog carnival was created by MckMama out of her desire to admit some of her imperfections and reveal a few moments she'd rather forget. I have many imperfections myself, and would very much like to do the same. Think of it as cheap therapy.

Here goes. . .

I did not ignore my long overdue dishes and laundry chores in favor of a trip to San Antonio this weekend. Not me! I am very serious about my housekeeping, and it would be so irresponsible to leave the house with a week-old pile of laundry the size of Mount Everest on my floor.

I did not allow my daughter to eat a Dora yogurt for dinner just because it's the only thing she would agree to eat. While it's not complete junk, it doesn't exactly cover the four food groups. And I'm far too concerned about her nutrition to do something like that.

I did not have to look away while trying to discipline my daughter to hide the fact that I was grinning from ear to ear because she was pointing her finger at me and yelling "No ma'am!" in protest. I also did not, after gaining my composure, put her in time out to stress the importance of not speaking that way to Mommy and Daddy, even though I secretly thought it was hilarious.

I did not let my toddler stay awake until after 11pm just because I was too exhausted to fight to get her to sleep at a decent hour. Nope, not me.

I did not make a trip to the Disney store to buy lots of princess stuff just because I'm an itsy bitsy teensy weensy bit excited about the impending end of the Everything's Elmo Era. (Can I get a hallelujah?)

And my absolute favorite. . .

I did not allow my potty-training two-year old to wash her hands bare-butt after using the potty so that I could have a second (God forbid!) to use the potty myself. And I certainly did not then, from the toilet, watch in horror as she said, "Uh-oh Mommy, poo poo fall down!" as she squished around in a big turd with her new white sandals up on her bathroom stool. That would just be gross.

You can head over to MckMama's blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week. You may find it therapeutic to join in and do the same thing!


  1. Oh, goodness... I got a HUGE kick out of this. Why is it always funny when we are completely honest with ourselves? :P

    Love you sis,

  2. I get a kick out of Not Me! Mondays. Makes me feel a little "normal." Your last one is hilarious... Thanks for joining the fun! I'm sure both of us "won't do" many things this week... nope, not us!

  3. LOL, this was great! I would NEVER do any of those things either....
