Not Me! Monday

This morning I did not tell my 11-year-old that she can do her own laundry because I'm tired of the never ending piles. Nope, not me!

While on a boat ride yesterday, I did not hold my three-year-old son upside down at the front of the boat so he could touch the water while the boat was moving, I would never put my son in such a position of potential danger.

I most certainly did not fall down my spiral staircase for the fifth time in six months, while knowing my children have never fallen down that staircase in their entire lives.

I did not allow my friend to change my son's dirty pull-up yesterday and play with him all while relaxing and enjoying a cup of tea. I would never put my parenting responsibilities on someone else like that.

To top it all off, I did not get so excited when the planning of several upcoming events got placed in my lap that I danced around my house. I am by no means that big of a nerd that organizing an event sends me into extreme excitement - not me!

  1. Hey! Just thought I'd let you know that while your individual pages are fixed... your main page puts all of your blog info in the left column still!

    Enjoyed your Not Me's!

    Have a great Monday!

  2. Hope you didn't hurt yourself falling down those stairs!

    The first time I tried to link to your blog, everything lined up to the left, but I exited out, visited a few others and upon returning, could view your blog just fine...all three columns where they're supposed to be.

    By the way, have your checked out Diary of a Stay at Home Mom? I love her blog and get great dinner ideas from it. And although I started parenting our little ones from birth...I still get stuck in the spaghetti/taco/hamburger rut! I just made her cheese-stuffed meatloaf and it was to die for!

    Happy Not Me Monday,

  3. Wait a minute... 11 year olds that do laundry?!?! My 12 year old is way behind...!! :)
