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. This is my first blog carnival post. By the way that whole phrase is one of those internet things that totally confuses me. I mean if it's a carnival where are the creepy rides, rigged games, and deliciously bad for me food?

Anyway, I haven't read MckMama's blog much yet but it has got be fun. And I found this particular topic perfect for my blog. So here goes...

I didn't hear the girls this morning and put the pillow over my head instead of going to get them up. And I certainly didn't let them watch extra shows because I needed an extra cup of tea and didn't want to referee the Wonder Pets vs. Yo Gabba Gabba throwdown.

We didn't all stay in our pajamas until five minutes before the therapist showed up. And I certainly did not allow Desmonda Drama to go in the other room when she started sobbing about not wanting school time. I totally went right back in and sat in on Calamity Jane's OT session instead of checking Twitter and having another cup of tea.

A mom like me would never give her kids saltines ten minutes before lunch time just to get a few minutes of peace and quiet. And I am way too laid back to get all worked up over getting the perfect Christmas card shot. That's so not me. I would never put my child in time out because she wouldn't look at the camera and was instead banging the ornaments together.

After a day like that I would not have garlic bread and wine for dinner. No, no instead I would cook a nutritious meal and pick the house up instead of drinking more wine and reading during bathtime. No way, not me!


  1. Love, love this! I for one would have never left her daughter in her night diaper until she pooped this morning or let her watch Sesame Street the moment she woke up with a sippy of milk and a banana.

  2. Hahahaahaaa! Too funny:) I am a mother who would never let my kid's paci fall on the floor and then give back to her without washing it.

    Boy, I could get used to this!

  3. You are too funny. I would never do every single thing that you (and MP and Emily) listed above! So funny. Written from the couch in PJs watching Sesame Street. Kids are quite. Love.
