Not Me Monday!

It’s Not Me Monday again!

Man do I feel a bit sheepish posting this week… y’all are gonna think I’m some crazy person.

This week, it was not me who realized that we’d accidentally parked in a handicapped spot. And upon realizing the guy next to us was staring at me suspiciously, it was not me who suddenly developed a pronounced limp.

(Okay… cut me a little slack here, it’s not much of stretch to think that I would limp anyway with my back wrecked like it is…though I gotta say it did mightily confuse the 2-year old kiddo I was hauling on my hip.)
It wasn’t me who got frustrated when Itty Bit unwrapped a present twice (yeah… a little early). He was headed to a Christmas party for another Santa encounter. I wouldn’t have said to him:

Honey, you gotta wait for Santa to give that you first. See, Mommy’s gonna give it to Santa, then Santa’s gonna give it to you. That’s the secret honey, I just ruined it for you”.

That would make me a mean mom.
It wasn’t me (or my sister) who ran after one of the law enforcement guys after the above party, yelling “CONE, CONE!” when he hit an orange one and proceeded to drag it out of the parking lot. It was not me (or the same sister) who laughed uproariously when he just looked confused and drove off. He’s gonna feel awful silly when he gets home or pulls someone over on the way.
After a friend’s birthday celebration at a REAL go-kart racing track (I mean helmets and neck protectors and the whole deal), it was not me who fishtailed just a bit at the first turn back on the REAL road. I’m a responsible driver, dadgumit! (Before you panic, No, Itty Bit was not with me).
It was not Itty Bit’s two hearing-challenged parents who were oblivious to the flood that he was creating at the bathroom sink. It was Itty Bit’s parents who stepped on the wet carpet and soaked several towels mopping it up.
And lastly… in a rush to read Linny & DW’s blog for an update on their miracle children, I did not do this:

I would never be so crazy to think about checking it first thing in the morning… before coffee… that would make me a blog-stalker or something…

(yes, I do realize I would have been feeling a bit of a breeze had I gone outside like this... and I really hope this will be the last buttcheek crack. Crack? Oh man I didn't mean that!)

Go check out what everyone else has not been doing!

Love it! The handicapped one is hilarious...I've never done something like that, not me! Great Not me! post, thanks for sharing:)

Oh, the handicap one is funny! At least you did it on accident, where I usually see people at daycare do it over and over again.

Oh, and I'm sure Itty Bit will have forgotten about your present story by next year, so you are safe. ;)
