Not Me! Monday

Not Me! Monday was born out of a desire to admit some of our imperfections and reveal a few moments we'd rather forget.


Well, for one, because it's just plain fun to pretend that we really did not do the things that we actually so did do. And, two, because reading through great tales of other people's Not Me! Mondays each week is a great way to level the playing field. We're all human, we all take embarrassing shortcuts, and so we may as well show each other that we're all in good company!

This week I did not eat almost entire bag of Hershey Kisses (not New York Cheesecake ones) in one sitting with my kids. And I did NOT let me 11 month old have any. He does NOT love chocolate as much as his momma. And he does NOT have that thighs to prove it.

I did NOT feed my kids McD's this week...multiple times!!!!

I did NOT get up at least once every night to give my 11 month old a bottle. That would be crazy, I mean he's ELEVEN months old, he sleeps through the night of course. And he does NOT still cosleep still either.

I also did NOT order a wireless modem because I needed to be able to have MORE time to blog and read blogs. That would mean I have some sort of blog addiction.

I did NOT get a sneak preview of the header a wonderful blogger buddy is working on for me and LOVE IT!!!

We did NOT get second Wii for Christmas! That would mean we are thoroughly spoiled!

We did NOT get new cordless phones after I bought some two weeks ago. The new ones do NOT work way better than the ones I bought!!!

I have NOT contemplated slipping something into my husbands coffee because his temper is out of control. I do NOT hate this time of year because he gets ridiculous every year.

I do NOT consider slipping something into my kids milk each night the last week because despite being in bed at 8pm they are up until 11pm.

##I promise I would never actually do either of the last two but it's bee a bit insane here lately...I could really use a get away.

##And we (really) didn't purchase either of the Wii's, they were both given to us from our gracious family.  It was a perfect gift idea, it just so happened that more than one person had the perfect idea for us this year!!


  1. Two Wii's? Did you use your first enough to warrant a second? We never use ours, lol. I had to have the wii fit too. I got it the first day we used it for like a week and now it is the place my laptop rests on at the end of the day.

  2. I wish we had a Wii! Sounds like a great Christmas! :)

    And my kiddo does not love chocolate as much as me either...

    Can't wait to see your new header, though your current one is pretty goshdarn cute!

  3. Love it. I "do not" get the urge to slip something into my kids drinks either. Nope. Not me!!

  4. thanks for your comment on my blog. I just believe we all need to help each other the best way we can. Blogging seems like a great way to do it. Keep up the good work....

  5. I didn't want to run a motrin IV to one of my children when they were teething. I can relate. Can't wait to see your new header!

  6. Can't stop laughing about your milk "not me"!

  7. McDonald's and Chocolate....sounds like a pretty good week to me! I have never contemplated slipping something into my kids milk....benadryl anyone?? tee hee!

    thanks for stopping by my blog...you have some handsome boys!


  8. Ok, I'm gonna have to get me some of these New York cheesecake kisses I keep hearing about!

    I'm new to "Not Me Monday" - nice to "meet" you! : )

  9. My mom did not dope us all up on Benedryl Christmas eve so we would sleep past 8! LOVE your NOT mes!

  10. Haha.. too funny. And two Wii's! I could just be happy with one.

  11. I want a Wii BAD, I think we are going to rent one some weekend we are home and see if we play it enough to justify buying one

    We dont even have kids, is that bad?

    I am so glad you did not do any of those things this week!

  12. I hear you on slipping a little something in the coffee and milk. My whole family is out of sorts. I am NOT happy that this winter break is over so we can get back to a routine that we so desperately need.

  13. I want a Wii. I think it is on the list to purchase after a new flat screen.

  14. so i am not so happy that you love the header. and i'm not excited to finish the rest and show your new look off!!

  15. Isn't McDonalds's a wonderful place? The kids love it and they actually eat everything they order.

    Loved your Not Me Monday.

  16. Great list...Cute blog...I had one of two of those babies that still woke up at 11 months...

  17. I love the Cheesecake Hershey kisses too. I even blogged about them as well!! Great list!

  18. They make Cheesecake Hershey kisses?! I am going to have to find those. You got two Wiis for Christmas?! I can't even find one!

  19. Oh boy...two wii's...double the addiction.


Thanks for leaving me a comment!!
