Not Me! Monday Edition 4

Wow!  What a week.  In case this is your first week reading these, MckMama started this really fun blog carnival where we all let out somethings that we absolutely did NOT do during the week.  It's been a lot of fun to read the things that other people have done that I have NEVER done!!  So, head on over and check it out.  Click the link on my sidebar to take you directly to the NOT ME! posts for this week!!

I did NOT wish on several occasions this week that my name was anything other than Mommy! Not me!

I did NOT go and hide in my bathroom, in the dark, when I heard crying, whiny kids come running down the hall for me! Not me!

I did NOT eat a big plate of dessert when husband and I went to business dinner on Thursday night. Not me!

I did NOT laugh at my husband when our 4 month old puppy peed on the comforter on HIS side of the bed! That would be insensitive and mean when obviously he was upset! Not me!

I did NOT say the word "turd" in front of my children only to hear them repeat it 1000 times in a 5 minute time span afterwards.  I am much more responsible than that! Not me!

And lastly, but most certainly not least, I did NOT in any way take a 2 hour nap one day this week. NO, I did laundry and got a jump on supper and mopped the floors on my hands and knees.  Yep, that is most certainly what I did instead of taking a nap!

I never hide in the bathroom and lock the door when I've heard "MOMMY!!!" a million times already from 4 different kids! Not me!! Great Post!

I can relate to everything you just posted! I sometimes have to tell me very inqusitive children, "You are not allowed to ask me ANY MORE QUESTIONS. You have reached your quota of questions for the day." To which they respond, "What's a quota?" AAHH!!!

I have not EVER done any of those things myself...NOPE!!!

I'm so with you on changing my name! It comes from every direction....alllll the time!!! Love the post!

Jill said...

Sometimes I hate the sound of my own name, too! Who ever would have thought I'd hate being called "Mommy" sometimes? Not me!

Haha...your not me's had me giggling. Some times you have to laugh when things are "spilled" on the bed. After all you're the one that ends up cleaning it.

Hi! Thanks for the comment on my blog to my "Not Me Monday" post :) I think the issue with not seeing the titles of my posts was because of the layout. I thought it was only me that was having trouble seeing it lol I changed it so hopefully its better now.

I work with kids and have wanted to change my name on several occassions lol

And yay for another Jon & Kate Plus 8 fan!

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha... I hide from my kids too.. they've figured out most of my hiding spaces. Hey, they can go to their Dad for help too, right?

What is this 'nap' thing you speak of?

I didn't hide from my kids this week, either.

Elaine said...

I could relate to all of them..

None of this sounds like me. I NEVER try to sneak a nap in , and then pretend I DID spend that time getting stuff done. And I dont lock myself in the bathroom for peace and quiet, ever. btw- I DONT love your song choices for the music on your blog!

Oh man if I could count the times I have hidden...unfortunately our house is small and they find me fast! Thanks for coming by my blog! I hope you come back!

Melanie said...

I'd never hide in the bathroom either. Nope, never! LOL

Lori said...

When I was teaching on more than one occasion I told the kids that I changed my name and I wasn't telling them what the new one was. My little guys don't say Mommy yet (or very frequently anyway) so I haven't wanted to change my name here at home yet

Love your not me's! I most certainly do not hide in the bathroom either. Nor did I ever laugh when our puppy peed on my husband's side of the bed.
