Not Me! Monday

Welcome to my first Not Me! Monday. This was started by MckMama as a way to be brutally honest but in a funny way. If you want to read about what everyone else is not doing, head over to her blog today.

Here goes!

I did not go a whole day without showering yesterday. I would never do something so disgusting. Not me!

I did not ignore Andrew's "no, Mommy" earlier today to avoid giving him his third spanking of the day. I would never do that! I always am very attentive to discipline around here.

I did not ignore Matthew's mess on the counter when I was cleaning today and just clean around it instead of trying to straighten it up somehow. Never!

I did not bribe Andrew with this thumbprint cookie from The Bread Basket (from my mother) to take a nap today. I would never do that! He obeys because it is the right thing to do!

I did not go up to Benjamin's room this morning after his morning nap, turn on his mobile, leave his lamp on and his door open for about ten minutes so I could finish eating my lunch. I would never do that! It was time for him to eat!

Furthermore, I did not go up there after ten minutes and see this:

Oh, and I would never leave the sixteen-pound Frank (cuddly as a baby and harmless, by the way) in the crib while I ran downstairs to grab the camera. NOT ME!!!

And finally, I did not ignore Benjamin's whines from the other room while I typed this up, because it is time for his nap. I would not do such a thing.

LOVE it! Especially the photo of Benjamin and Frank. I TOTALLY would have done the same thing and left Frank where he was to get the camera! Needed to be captured on "film"!

thanks for sharing these! have a great day!

awesome!! I may have to be a blog copy cat b/c that is too awesome!! I have given more spankings in the past week than I had ever planned on doing before I had kids. I have also threatened to spank about 100X more than she actually got!! LOL

Great pics as usual! I totally use to call my mobile the "snooze alarm"... yep I'd go in and turn it on and crawl back in bed for 15 minutes.

Angela, Matthew's mess actually makes me feel really secure. If such an organized mind has to make a pile of his things, I feel better! Sadly, he makes one, while I make them everywhere!
As your mother,I have never done ANY of those horrid things! Ha If you only knew.

I think you are my new best friend. I had to laugh at every one of your "did nots" because I am guilty of the same things especially the "you can wait until I am done doing whatever I am doing to get up from your nap" My daughter, Ella, was born 3/29/08 and also has Ds so we are probably at very similar stages. I don't have a blog yet so email me if you like Denise
