Not Me! Monday

Not Me! Monday is a blog carnival started by MckMama. It provides an outlet, a way to admit to all of those things that you sheepishly have done this past week! Head over to her blog to check out other Not Me! moments!

Almost a couple of weeks ago, in the midst of being tremendously ill, I absolutely did NOT soil myself FIVE times in one week. I always maintain full control of *ahem* that and would never lose control over my BMs!

I absolutely did not burst out laughing when my three-year-old came up to me and was very concerned that he was "broken" because he "has a double-jointed face". I then did not have to spend almost a half hour consoling him because I certain had not hurt his feelings by my actions.

While I was in Target today, I did not confuse the sweet old man who was standing near me by making him think I was talking to him while I was actually having a conversation using the bluetooth device on my cell phone. I am completely annoyed by people who have long conversations in stores and would never put myself in that category, especially when the person near me thinks I'm talking to him and gets embarassed when he can't answer my question!

While baking a birthday cake for a friend, I certainly did not lose a toothpick inside the cake while testing to see if it was done! I always make sure to keep my fingers away and would NEVER use a tweezers to remove said toothpick!!

I also did not return my daughter's socks to Target intending to exchange them and, in fact, remember to buy everything I needed except for her socks. I am a wonderful step-mother and I fully know how much she is in need of socks and I would have NEVER forgotten them!

Finally, I did not ask my children to JUST STOP TALKING while I was driving them home from their grandparents' house, merely so I could listen to the Vikings game on the radio. My children are incredibly important to me, and the things they have to say rate FAR higher than a football game!!

So - what Not Me! moments did you have this week?!
