Not Me! Monday


It's time for another Not Me! Monday! As always, you can go to MckMama's blog to see the rest of the madness. Go over there and see what other bloggers are definitely not doing.

First of all, I did not have a good Mother's Day last week despite being sick. When Matthew asked Andrew a few days before what he wanted to get me for Mother's Day, Andrew did not say a Fire Fire Jacket and a Mr. Potato Head. And if he did, Matthew never would have made me a silly card with those items on the front.

I do not have the best husband ever who knows I'd much rather have practical gifts for Mother's Day than flowers or (ugh) candy.

I did not take the boys out in my brand-new double jogging stroller for a walk around the neighborhood last week only to realize halfway around the circle that the tires had not yet been inflated. I would never do that!

And Benjamin did not try to hold Andrew's hand!

I do not try to force my sons to be nice and hug each other for pictures.

I would not dress my sons up in bunny ears to watch the inflation of the Energizer Bunny hot air balloon at my mom's school last week.

The flames were not so hot that I felt my eyebrows burning.

The Energizer Bunny hot air balloon is not piloted by my mother's cousin Gloria and certainly is not 15 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty!

I do not love having a kid who loves to eat! I do not thank God at every meal that he has no issues with taste or texture. Not me!

I also do not love having a boy who loves new library books. He is not a boy after his mama's heart.

Andrew is not starting to warm up to Benjamin a little...

And he certainly is not very silly.

I do not love to capture pictures so much that I handed Matthew the camera on the way home from church today. (At least I was at a red light during this shot.)

I was not biting my nails here!

Andrew does not still use a sippy cup exclusively, even at meals. No! He's three!

Andrew did not get tickled and tickled and tickled on the way home by his daddy, just to be able to see the goosebumps on his legs.

I do not love these two guys with every inch of my being. Not me!!!

that was great! and i LOVE the matching shirts on the boys... so cute!!! how do you like your new stroller???

Alicia said...

Great Not Me's! The bunny ears are too cute!

Kellye, Chad, Hayden, and Sebastian said...

I LOVE the bunny ears! That's hysterical! And is the sippy cup such a bad thing considering the no spill feature....Hayden is almost 4 and we still use a sippy. It's more like a sports bottle though...does that count?

I love the second bunny ear picture. It looks like B is begging you to take the bunny ears off of his head. Then, the third bunny ear picture looks like he's holding up his finger as if to say, "hold up just a minute; I'm starting to get used to these giant pink bunny ears". Also love the Mother's Day card. Great Post!

Benjamin does not totally look like a big boy in that car seat picture!

I do not totally get excited to see new blog posts to read, considering I haven't updated my own blog in a week.
