Not Me! Monday




It's Not Me! Monday time! What did you not do this week? Read all about Not Me! Monday at MckMama's, then join in!

This week I did not let my kids watch their favorite movies about 4 times a day... I know that watching that much television is not healthy for their development, especially since they are just 1 & 2 years old!

When doing laundry from my giant laundry pile downstairs this week I did not for a few moments consider just stuffing the outgrown / seldom worn / seasonally inappropriate clothing into a plastic tub and snapping a lid on it and hiding it in the spare room just so I could feel like I accomplished something...

I am not thinking this same thought again right now... hmmm.....

I also did not nearly let out a huge whoop of joy and dance a little jig when I finally found my regular (NON-NURSING) bras this week. After all, my daughter has been weaned for 2 months now and I most certainly had not still been wearing my raggedy nursing bras pointlessly all this time...

I did not find myself singing songs from my kids' shows / movies throughout the week, even when away from my house. That would be silly... I take time to listen to my own style of music and of course get my own music stuck in my head...

I am not, not, NOT in Survivor withdrawal... nope, not a bit. I have a life, thankyouverymuch!

I have not lived mainly on spring rolls, chips and salsa and chocolate this past week... I always eat a healthy variety of food. (Because what "Not Me" post of mine would be complete without a mention of chocolate, fudge, or some other sad, sorry indulgence...)

I have not given in to my husband's strange way of preventing my girls from sucking their thumbs by allowing him to put socks on their hands nearly 24/7... that would be absurd, and certainly raise some eyebrows... Wouldn't it?

The socks idea is a good one, me thinks!

I have the tv on all the time for my son...bad, bad. I actually found myself singing the theme song from "Little Einsteins" quite a lot this week...

Great list! Have a great week!

LOL You need a pair of cheap satin gloves from the dress up section. My daughter goes out with one single hot pink glove everywhere. I have no excuse for it other than the fact that she is so proud and thinks she is so fancy. It makes all the raised eyebrows worth it.
