Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
It's been a while since I have done a Not Me! post and I have had a lot of Not Me! moments. I started this post this morning and I am forcing myself to post it now.
I did not forget to pick up my son from school on the 1st early release day. He didn't have to stand and wait by the school door with the other forgotten kids. I was not at home just wondering how I was going to hold off his little sister's nap when I was already late to pick him up. I was not embarrassed at all when the school called me - not one bit - not me.
I am not being watched today. (Whose cat is this and why is it watching me!??) I am not slightly paranoid that this is payback for all of the not-so-nice cat jokes I have told in my lifetime. Please, please tell me that isn't happening to me.
I did not forget to remind my husband that my son had a bellyache during his soccer game on Saturday. I did not feel bad when my husband (the coach) told me he had forgotten and would have been a little easier on him if he had remembered. I was not so busy cheering for him, feeling proud of him, and taking pictures of him that I forgot about his tummy ache- no, not me.
I did not take my son with the on again off again bellyache to a birthday party yesterday at a park, let him run around like crazy and eat candy from a pinata, only to finish off the party by puking beside my van. I did not do that- not me.
I did not work really hard when stuffing candy in the PTO meeting reminder treat backs to ensure that I had just a few Heath bars left. I mean, I wouldn't have supplemented from David's leftover pinata stash just so I could eat a few Heath bars. No, no, no... I do not love those little treats that much - not me.
I did not do the happy dance right in the middle of Wal-mart when I found the nut-free cupcakes. My son had that birthday part to attend on Sunday and I didn't have anything for him to bring- that would be remotely close to the cake the kids were going to enjoy. I did not call my husband from the store to tell him the great news. I wasn't that excited over pre-packaged, nut-free cupcakes - of course, not- not me.
I have not had a little too much fun playing with my son's Nerf guns. He got them for his birthday and they are so much fun- er, I mean, I wouldn't know if they would be fun to shoot at my husband. It wouldn't have been me crawling around on the floor, hiding behind the chair, shooting at my husband in all out Nerf gun war. That wasn't me - nope, not me- but don't ask my kids about that either.
I have not lost my mind looking for my digital camera this afternoon. I have cleaned my car and the stroller but I have not found the camera. I had it at the park. I remember carrying it over toward the car right before my son started puking. I am not feeling sick to my stomach imaging life without pictures. If you know me, you know I always have my camera. NOOOOOO, don't let this be the truth. I can't be camera-less, NOT ME.
I am not in a bad mood right not because my camera is MIA- no, not me.
I am not leaving all of that above just to prove that I am crazy about pictures... even though, literally 2 SECONDS after I posted the post, I remembered using my camera this morning and I know right where it is. I am not in a bad mood any more. I am so, so, SOOOOOOO happy. I am not leaving this here to remind myself that I have an obsession with taking pictures of my kids. Now, I am not going to go do the happy dance all the way down the hall to grab my precious little camera- no, and I am not at all glad you can't see me right now!!
