Not Me! Monday

It's been a while since I've done a Not Me! Monday. I thought I would give it a shot again. So here goes all the things I did not (but really did) do...

I did not laugh hysterically when my children were showing their pure, unadulterated talent, and sucking their nostrils in when my oldest daughter declares, "I didn't know I had nostrils. I just thought I had a hole in my nose so I could stick my fingers in to get my boogers!" It was not me doubled over laughing, almost falling on the floor. That's even kind of gross when you think about it!

When I was at the pharmacy the other day and some strange child I've never seen before stepped right up beside me, like one of my own children would, and started staring at me and listening to my conversation with the pharmacist, I did not completely stop talking and stare down the kid until he left. When the pharmacist asked if that was my kid, I did not say very loudly, "NO!" so that his parent could hear me if she happened to be standing a few feet away. That was some other curly headed lady named Christy, not me.

For lunch the other day, it was totally not me who had a few crackers, a couple of small pieces of cheese, a quarter of an orange, an entire crispy chocolate candy bar with peanut butter smeared over it, and a leftover rib from the BBQ restaurant! It makes me tired even thinking that could have been my lunch, so it couldn't have been me!

It wasn't me who received a call from my midwives saying I have to take the three hour glucose test this week because my one hour screening came back abnormal! Surely they called the wrong number and had me mistaken for someone else!

When my precious Emma and I did not sleep until 8:30 this morning, I did not awake and walk into the den to hear my almost 5 year old son tell me he had just made a peanut butter and jelly cracker sandwich all by himself! Thank goodness if it was me, there wasn't a huge mess all over the kitchen...just some minor crumbs. No, that wasn't me. My kids are totally patient and always wait for me to do something major like make a peanut butter and jelly cracker sandwich!

It's not me who has an ever expanding baby bump with the indigestion to go along with it who should by stock in TUMS because of the amount I consume in a day! Nope, I'm not 29 weeks pregnant, getting just a little bit anxious about a new baby coming, trying to figure out how I am going to carry Emma and a newborn at the same time! Nope, not me!

I don't have one of the sweetest little girls in the whole wide world who writes the sweetest little notes to me and the rest of our family. My six year old did not write me a precious note on her Hannah Montana stationary, complete with Strawberry Shortcake stickers, telling me I am the best Mommy! Nor did she write one to her baby sister, Emma saying, "Dear Emma I love (drew a heart) you vary much so so much that I can not stand it." Nah, that didn't happen.

My almost five year old son did not ask me another question this week, only to follow up with "how do you know" after I've given him the answer. He is too much of a cutie pie with the most precious dimples ever to say something like that to his mother! And we did not have a 5 minute show-down on how to pronounce the letter B as opposed to the letter P and the letter F as opposed to S! And he certainly would never have even thought of looking at me all mad-like and stomping his foot and telling me to "just be quiet!" Not my son! And if he would have done something like that, I would probably have jumped out of my recliner with mach speed and spanked his little hiney! So that wasn't me, because I handled myself much too calmly for the comment that my son didn't say!
Well, I guess that about sums up for now what I did not do. It's all my pregnant brain can remember anyway!

OK, it's your turn. I hope you'll join in the fun. Follow the link for instructions or click on the icon in my sidebar for Not Me! Monday, and if you don't have a blog, at least comment so we can see what you didn't do! Have fun! Click here to go to the rules on McMama's site.
Have a great Monday!!

  1. There are folders in my favorites tab pertaining to blogs. One is: Daily Blogs. This file presently holds a list of seven blogs that I want to check on daily; yours is one of them. I also have a Weekly Blog folder and one labeled New Additions. Bloggers sometimes move between weekly & daily, but always start in New Additions until I see if it is really interesting enough to follow.

    My current Daily Blog list is as follows:

    1. The Mouro Family
    2. Storing up Treasures in Heaven
    3. Small Things with Great Love
    4. My Charming Kids
    5. Meandering-Through No Longer
    6. New Kind of Normal
    7. I’m Especially Fond of You

    I know one of you personally. Several of you know each other personally and/or follow each others blogs. Perhaps some of you don’t know each other at all, but would like to meet.

    Why do I enjoy reading your blogs? Chances are you have children (maybe many). God has given me a passion for his precious little ones. Some of you are photographers. I’ve recently developed a keen interest in becoming a better photographer. Maybe you’ve suffered a miscarriage or lost a child. One of my daughters has suffered greatly with this issue. Another passion of mine is learning all I can about Autism. I do respite care for kids with Autism Spectrum & similar disorders. To my knowledge you are all Christians. I am on this walk with you. You are all awesome at blogging. Which is what I aspire to become.

    Please check out my blog at and leave me some comments, advice, or share information that would be helpful in learning how to create a great blog site. Many thanks in advance and kudos to each of you!!!

    I started reading my first blog in November of 2007 and now a year later I try to keep up with a couple dozen and have started my own. It’s a great way to keep distant friends and relatives connected, a challenging learning experience and it’s addicting.

    Be sure to read how my blog got its name (my very first entry) and don’t miss my one and only video (also a first for me, entitled Be My Little Sugar). It’s guaranteed to make you smile. Keep up the good work girls and I hope to see you on my blog.

    Oh! Almost forgot to add, that I’m about to get a facelift --- for my blog that is; from a Blog for a Cause. Gee where did I find that information? On one of your blogs, of course.


Thank you for stopping by. We love hearing from you. Blessings!
