Not Me! Monday



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.

Since life with 4 small children is fun, hectic, crazy, wonderful and everything inbetween, I'm going to start having Not Me! Mondays so you all can laugh along with our shortcomings as parents. Mostly mine but I'll post a few of Jon's as well. This idea is not my own but I love reading others who do this so have a laugh at our expense and feel free to comment.

We wanted to skip the kids' bath the other night so as the sticky haired girls were swimming, we did not wash their hair in the pool. I also did not let our family dog swim in said pool a few minutes later. Nope, not me.

I did not hop in the shower friday night after the parade and shower each sweaty, filthy child one by one to save time. Who would do that?

Also at the conclusion of said parade when my oldest child said he had to "pee" really bad, I most certainly did not help him pee along side the car outside! And since he does this all the time and has perfect aim, he most certainly did not pee all over his foot. That would just be too disgusting.

After spending many hours this weekend going through toys and sorting them back into appropriate bins, I am not sitting here typing this post while listening to my crew destroy the toy room AGAIN! Why would I do that?

Lastly I did not hear my husband ask for the "coochy cream" while he was changing our youngest's dirty diaper. Diaper Doo, honey...Diaper Doo! I also did not laugh histerically at this and ask for clarification.

And lastly, since this is my first Not Me! Monday post and I missed posting after Father's Day, I would never dream about giving my husband the best Father's Day gift ever! The best gift you can give a dad who has many young children? A negative pregnancy test! Nope, I am not that thoughtful!!

So let me know what you think and if you'd like to see more of these. Enjoy your day and go read some more at the above link.

Wow, congratulations!! I had to read through the post twice to make sure I was following along right. What a cute idea. I might just have to borrow it. The Not me idea, not the pregnancy idea. ;) I'm almost done with my LAST one, all other children WILL be adopted.
