Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! In this blog carnival created by MckMama everyone has fun telling all the things they DID NOT do (but really did). You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
Here's what has NOT been going on in my house:


I DID NOT enter the kitchen after having a serious discussion with my 6 year-old about lying, specifically the difference between joking and lying, to discover my little kids had given the dog 78 dog treats.


I DID NOT turn around from cleaning up (and photographing) the dog treats the dog had not yet scarfed down to find my 1 year-old wildly scooping dog food into the dog water dish. The title of my blog is NOT so true many, many times per day!

I DID NOT at any point in the last 7 days get my 3 year-old and my 1 year-old kids in the shower, squirt a bunch of shaving cream on the shower wall, encourage them to "paint", and then sit down in the bathroom with my computer and blog for 15 minutes! Not Me!

I DID NOT run 3 miles while pushing a jogging stroller only to return and eat chocolate hearts from the remaining Valentine's candy and cheese balls left-over from my son's birthday party. No, that would be crazy! NOT ME!

I DID NOT allow my daughter to add sprinkle toppings to her yogurt one day at lunch.

And to make you in the tundra feel better, we absolutely DID NOT have a few 80 degree days last week. I have NOT been spending my afternoons pushing these two on the swings!


I can't wait to hear what you have NOT been doing!

  8. Nice warm weather sounds so nice! And I love the shaving cream idea, I may have to try that myself one of these days. Good idea with the sprinkles on the yogurt - but hopefully she ate some of the yogurt too!

  10. Wow, and I thought my one-year-old was the only kid who likes to put dog food in the water bowl! So glad I'm not alone. :)

    Happy Monday.

  16. I'm not in the tundra, but I haven't seen 80 degrees in quite some time! Love the shaving cream idea! Sounds like fun! And on the dog food, my 1 year old would do that too, but since 1 of my dogs is a little grumpy (meaner than a snake) we keep their food way out of the baby's reach!
