Not Me Monday

I did not spend my “Free of Small Children” Saturday night cleaning my teenage son’s room with my husband. Not me – I am much more romantic than that and know how to take advantage of free babysitting when I have it.

I did not pull out a WHOLE bag of clothes from Zman’s closet that were a size 7/8 and pack them up for Almost Mine. After all, I purge my children’s closets more than once every 7 years.

I did not clean out my freezer this weekend and find not one, but TWO bags of frozen vegetables with expiration dates in 2004. Nope, not me, I am not wasteful or forgetful.

When Bug came to me last night complaining of a sore throat, I most certainly did not tell her to get a drink of water and go to bed. Not me, I am a very sympathetic, compassionate, caring, and attentive mother – I would never do anything like that.

I did NOT wake up this morning; get ready for work, only to take both Bean and Bug to the doctor because they have a staph infection and strep throat, respectively!

I did not proceed to feed them cinnamon rolls with icing for breakfast. Not me, I feed my sickly children very nutritious meals to boost their immune systems.

I did not try to take a picture of my girls’ feet thinking it would be a sweet picture only to capture THIS. AAACCCKKK! Not me, my girls are dainty, delightful, poised, young women.

  1. Great not me monday. I think the pictures looked great

  2. The name of your blog made me laugh!!! Fantastic!

    I too would never be unsympathetic to my sick children~~just asks them. Ummm. Well...Maybe you shouldn't:)


  3. Found you on MckMama - love the Not Me's!! If it makes you feel better I just threw away canned food that was 4+ years expired.

  4. I would not have done the exact same thing about the sore throat. I mean sometimes you can't tell when they really are not feeling well. Oh well, I hope they get better!

    Happy Not Me Monday!

  5. Hey just popping over from MckMama, Love the not me's! I have to admit I came because your blog name stood out among the other 300+ :-) lol.

  6. Love the name! The "cute feet" pics is something I'd wanted to try, and your's is HILARIOUS!

  7. The feet picture had me laughing out loud! And, I so do not feed my kids any unhealthy foods either! Glad to know you aren't the only one who doesn't do that!

  8. I love your blog, the name is adorable and teh pictures are great.

  9. I love your blog name! I feel the same way about closet purging so hopefully I'm not that far behind. And the sore throat, well, what can I say; the kid deserved an ooey, gooey cinnamon roll after NOT being sent back to bed with just a drink of water!

    Good ones!
