Not Me: Weddings and Tea Parties

Welcome to Not Me! Monday!   Where I have an opportunity to admit what I did NOT do this week. When I ran out of size one diapers for Isabella I was able to use a few size two diapers, although they were a little big and made her look like she had a big, saggy,…

Not Me: Tubs, Sofas and Toes

With the arrival of baby Bella in addition to our other responsibilities, Mark and I are NOT struggling to keep up with everything.Nope, not us, everything is under control. I was NOT having to rush to get a shower in time to make a lunch date with hubby (’cause you know that I have my…

Not Me: Spoiling the Baby

Our whole family is NOT completely goo-goo over our sweet new baby girl.  We are a sensible, productive family so tiny ears, crossed eyes and soft skin are NOT enough to make us all want to just sit around holding and admiring a tiny baby. Isabella was NOT over a week old before she ever…

Not Me: Popsicles and the Van

I did not forget about a doctor’s appointment last week and end up skipping it completely.  (I’m not completely blaming that on baby brain, Oi!) It did not take us 45 minutes to figure out the new van seating arrangements for when the baby is born.  The conversation did not go something like this. So…

Not Me: When it Rains….

I did not inadvertently spill some water on the keyboard of our family’s laptop causing the ‘t’ and the ‘y’ keys to short out and thus making it impossible to sign into the computer.  (Do you think that if I say that often enough that it really will not have happened and that my ‘t’…

French Fries, Beds and Toilets: Not Me Monday

Not Me – Being brutally honest and living to tell about it. When we found out that Suzanne (the nearly-finished-with-college, college student who lives with us) was going to be home for dinner rather than out late studying.  We did NOT quickly take a few french fries off of everyone’s plates in order to save…

Water: Not Me Monday

We did not have to fish a wadded up napkin out of the milk jug because one of the children was tossing it around at the table. When the little girls asked if Nicholas could be in the bathroom while they were playing in the bathtub I told them as long as he didn’t get…

Not Me Monday: I Did NOT…

…take my sweet baby from looking like thisto looking like this… After his hair cut, I certainly did not fail to recognize him and think that someone had let one of the neighbor children into our home. I did not shed any tears at how different his hair cut made him look.  No, not me!…

Not Me Monday: Being Caught Unprepared…Again

When the 1 year old Nicholas wet his pants just before nap time I simply put a new diaper on him and laid him down to rest.  When he woke up from his nap and headed out side (still  pant-less) to play with the big kids, I did not pretend that I didn’t notice and…

Cameras and Bloody Lips: Not Me Monday

Mark and I have been married for 14 years, so he recently did not ask me if I spelled my name with an -ey or just -y.  The children and I were not able to convince him that our almost five year old was  getting ready to turn four and I’m not wondering if he’s…

Not Me Monday: Pirates and Grubs

As we were eating our dinner of chicken, vegetables and brown rice on Wednesday one of the children did not say, “Mom, it looks like there is a worm in my rice.” If someone had discovered a worm in their rice it would certainly have been a figment of their imagination and not an actual…

Not Me Monday

I have not considered dedicating a whole blog post to some of the odd things that I pull out of the washing machine paper diapers (yuck), acorns, rocks, shells, fistfuls of mud, pens, crayons, batteries, balls, a walkie talkie, remote control, Little People, cars, a yo-yo, real bugs, etc.  I am not continually amazed at…
