"Not Me!" Monday

Not Me! Monday is here again! Head on over to My Charming Kids to join in the fun!

In preparation for company on Friday, I did not spend an hour dragging heavy pieces of furniture around rearranging Peanut's bedroom only to decide I liked it better the way I had it to begin with. That would just be such a waste of time. Not me!

I did not leave my daughter unsupervised while I ran to check my email on Saturday. Which means I did not return a minute later to find her eating a blue toddler crayon. Which also means I did not spend the rest of the afternoon scraping blue bits out of her teeth. Not meeeee!

As many of you know, I'm all about bugs, snakes and mice. So the other morning when I caught Peanut crushing a beetle with her little finger, I did not shriek at the top of my lungs and cause her to burst into tears. As a calm, caring mother, I like to foster my little girl's interests, whether they be dirtry, squirmy bugs or princess tea parties.

Sunday morning, I did not force try to convince Peanut to wear a matching headband with her pretty little sailor dress. And if I did try to make her wear said headband, I would never take pictures of her miserably trying to rip the headband from her hair head. I mean, what kind of mother would I be?

So what has everyone else not been doing this week? I'd love to hear!


  1. Oh! I tried to get my daughter to wear an adorable little pink hat that matched her dress for church and she would not wear it! she carried it into the van with her but that was it. :( maybe next time! :)

  2. I love the beetle one! Ha ha!

  3. funny post! I too,did not shriek like a banshee when Luka once grabbed a COCKROACH to show me!

  4. I did not forget to buckle my son INTO his car seat which followed him not climbing out of it and into the drivers seat while I had not left him in the car alone to grab a cup of coffee quickly because I was not running late for work!
