Not Me! Monday

It's time for "Not Me! Monday" again! 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.

Here are just a few of the many things I absolutely was not doing this past week. . .

I did not pick my daughter up from daycare on Monday, only to find out that she had attempted to bite not one, but TWO of her friends that day. It definitely did not cross my mind that this was my own fault for not getting her to bed early enough Sunday evening. Mother's know nothing of self-blame or guilt.

I did not let Carl's BBQ do the cooking for me for the bunco that I hosted on Wednesday just because I needed all the spare time I could find to get my house looking presentable. Nope, not me! I'm way too Martha Stewart to do something like that.

I did not change Anna out of her pajamas for the first time at 7:30 last night just so that I could give her a bath and put on a new pair of pajamas. Even if Derek and I weren't feeling well and didn't leave the house all day, surely I would have at least put Anna in some playclothes at some point.

Despite the fact that she's fully capable of getting out of our bed the proper way and has done so many times, Anna did not fall out of our bed this morning after I put her there for all of 5 seconds so that I could gather the things necessary to do her hair for school. She absolutely did not hit her head on the wood frame on the way down and get a big knot on her forehead so that I could be reminded of the whole traumatic incident every time I look at her for at least the next week.

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. Speaking of reminders... I scratched Dylan with my wedding ring on his forehead yesterday by accident. He had a huge welt from the top of his nose into his hairline. As David put it, I mutilated him. How nice!

  2. So typical, Alli! Leave it to "Daddy" to soften the blow ;)
