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.

Alright, I'm a little embarrassed that I have not posted anything since last Monday's "Not Me's" but oh well. What can I say? I've been spending more time with my kiddos! (Oh, okay... and reading other's blogs instead of writing my own! You got me.)

So here is my list of what I did "not" do this week... No matter what you may have heard! ;)

I did not have a headache this weekend that would not go away no matter how much tylenol or caffeine I ingested. And I was not at all cranky with the kids while said headache did not rage on and on...

I did not contemplate whether I may have lost any weight due to not eating any lunch or dinner that day...

I most certainly did not nearly put chili powder in my 14-month-old's oatmeal this past week. I did not have it in my hand before I realized it was not cinnamon. I absolutely did not chuckle over it as I imagined the look on my daughter's face if I had not caught my mistake in time... that would be something a not-so-very-nice-mom would do. Which I am definitely not.

I did not ask my hubby to get Glazer doughnuts last night with the full intention of giving some to my kids for breakfast today just so I wouldn't have to cook / make anything myself. How lazy do you think I am? Don't answer that!

And... I did NOT leave a dirty diaper - open, no less - on my living room floor all night one night this past week. Yeah. I have no idea how it crawled back out of the trash, opened back up from it's tightly wound-up and taped together self and magically found it's way back to the very spot I had hurriedly changed my daughter the night before... There is no way that could happen in my house!! Gross!

Ah... and now that I have shared my proud mommy moments with all of you, won't you join in? What did you "not" do this week? C'mon, it's great therapy to "confess" all of our not-so-great moments we all have, and to see that we're not alone in our little (or not so little!) imperfections. :) Please head over to MckMama's to play along, and see her complete (and oh-so-easy) rules! :)

Have a super week!

Hahaha... I would totally do the same thing with the dirty diaper. I have yet to do it but could see myself doing it.

Jen - wait till you have a couple more kids - maybe then? :) First time I've ever done that! So glad I saw it before Seth did!!!

haha I love that you *didn't* laugh about imagining your daughter's reaction to chili-oatmeal. that's something I would *never* do either...! :)
