"Not Me!" Monday



"Not me!" Monday is when I take the chance to document things that I would not ever do. These are some things I definitely did not do this week:

I have not been obsessing about my abilities as a mom ever since my son told me he loved Daddy more. It has not bothered me one bit. I know that would be childish. I would not let something like that bother me- not me!

Early in the week I found out that my husband loves the soda Squirt. He claimed it is one of his favorite drinks. We have been married for 13 years and I never remember him savoring one Squirt drop. I did not make a big deal about this. I did not post a status on about this on Facebook hoping to get comments from non-Squirt lovers. I’d love for you to comment on this post if you don’t like Squirt. I am not still trying giving my husband a hard time—no way, not me!

I did not finish off the rice krispy treats this morning that I planned to have as a treat for the kids today. I did not think to myself: “they are cut so small, the boys would have been disappointed.” I couldn’t have had that yummy treat with my coffee- not me!

I did not take a nap on Sunday afternoon. I could not have been that worn out. I did not say, “No, I don’t like to take naps” all the way to my bed. I couldn’t have woken up feeling refreshed – that couldn’t have happened to me, not when I had so much on my to do list.

I was not just crawling on all fours chasing a giggling little one year old. I was not playing like that when my kitchen is a mess, my room needs cleaning, and I have laundry to do. I couldn’t imagine just simply enjoying every second of it, either—nope, not a bit- not me!

OH, that so would bother me too. My kids tell me dad is more fun all the time. He is such a kid himself.

love your not me posts!
i think there might be something wrong with me because it has never bothered me when and if the girls say they love daddy more. i must be defective as a mom!!! no wonder they love him more, huh? =)

I am NOT a squirt fan. Yucky! I can, however, consume mass quantities of Dt. Mt. Dew.
Um, I live for naps. Love, love, Love 'em!!!

My husband (of 10 years) informed me a couple months ago that his favorite cake was carrot cake. Uh, since when? Forever apparently! Whatever.

What the heck is squirt? :)

Squirt, yuck... My son is starting to gravitate towards Dad more now too. I certainly don't act like it bothers me a little...

I so look forward to your not me Mondays! I think I may use the not me idea for a scrapbook page. So fun!
I can't stand Squirt-

I see absolutely nothing wrong with protecting you children from disappointment over size-challenged rice-krispie treats! Besides, how different is one of those from a big blueberry muffin anyways! Have a great day and hope the boys are feeling better.

Always my favorite post of yours each week. Sometime soon I'm planning to follow suit and join you. Just not happening this time of year.

I actually do like Squirt, just for the record . . . but Walmart's grapefruit drink is a good substitute, easier to find, and costs less every time. What a shock to find out after 13 years though! ; )
