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.

It does not bother me that given the choice of pink, blue, green, or yellow sunglasses, Andrew has chosen pink twice. Nope! Not me! Pink is a perfectly fine color for a boy. It doesn't bother me at all. I would never say, "Pink is a girl color." NO! That would be sexist!

But what really doesn't bother me is that he chooses to wear them upside down. (And I did not take these pictures while driving. No! That would be dangerous.)

I do not let my husband dress the boys each morning so that I can sleep in an extra ten minutes. NO! And because I do not do that, my boys are not almost always wearing a combination of red and navy. And socks that do not match. (Which is ironic b/c some of my long-time blog readers will remember back in October when we were at Vanderbilt for B's open-heart surgery, we discovered that Matthew has strange views on matching blues.)

And I do not let Benjamin crawl around the house like a dog with Andrew's sock in his mouth.

I do not let my boys watch too much television. NOT ME!

I do not let my son sleep in his underwear in the floor of my mother's bathroom (on a small mattress). And I certainly do not think he's the cutest little thing in his Elmo undies.

I love it! I can't believe you didn't mention the selection of the woman's watch. :).

You were up at 6am posting this? Goodness, Girl - you deserve that extra 10 minutes sleep!!!

Ok explain about the bathroom floor . . .LOL. Why would he be sleeping in there? Cute though.

Haha. Elijah also does not wear his sunglasses upside down:) And Jed definitely does not like to chew on his shoes. That would be nasty!
