Not Me Monday!

It’s Not Me Monday again! Check out My Charming Kids for more.

It was not me who was enjoying a delicious Jelly Belly that Itty Bit
popped into my mouth… before Mr. Daddy clued my gag reflex:

“Hey hon, Itty Bit just tried that one, then spit it out of his mouth.
Then it fell on the floor before he gave it to you.”

Timing is everything. Thanks hon.
Not me who tried to take several pictures at the lake today before realizing that the message said “Card Full”. Wouldn’t have been so bad, except that all five hundred pictures were from that hour-long walk around the lake.
In my defense, I wasn’t the only one using it.

(in a tree for the first time ever)

It was not me who was hoping for another I Heart Faces shot!
It was not me who gave a sweet little infant his first bath this week. While trying to soak a bandage off of him, it was not me who suddenly noticed I was rinsing him with some awfully dirty water. Nope, it was not me who quickly scooted him out of the water when I realized my hand and the little guy were hanging out in diarrhea.

(And in spite of all that, it is not me who has major baby fever…you guys mind working some comment persuasion on Mr. Daddy? An only child is a sad thing, right?)
Not me who did laundry all day yesterday after Mr. Daddy found a phantom leak under the bathroom sink (read: it’s all wet but there’s no dripping water). It was not me who went from shocked to puzzled to annoyed when I realized that I’d inherited 33 towels when Mr. Daddy and I got married. THIRTY-THREE stinking soaked yucky towels that needed to be washed. Grumble grumble.
Not me who bragged that my horse knows how to nod, because of course she never does it when anyone else is around. Not me who crowed in delight as she did it for my mom yesterday!
Not me who threw a little tantrum earlier, to which Mr. Daddy brought a conciliatory cheesecake home. Not me who replied, “I love you too, but I don’t love cheesecake”.

Not me who ate a whole piece and is eyeing another one right now.

Seems that I’m not the only one?


What have you all not been up to? Can’t wait to read yours – join the fun at Not Me Monday!

Your camera card was full? What...that never happens to me. LOL
Gross on the dirty water. yikes.
You totally need to have another one...when you make cute children, you can't just stop at one. We didn't...LOL
Pass that on to Mr. Daddy. Tell him I will hint every comment until he caves.

I laughed out loud at the story of the jelly belly!! So glad that wasn't you it happened to! ;-)

And Mr. Daddy, I know you don't know me at all (this is the first time I've visited your blog), but I definitely think you should give your gorgeous son a baby brother or sister! Think of the fun you have with your little guy and multiply it exponentially ~ that's what having another child would do for your life (I speak from the experience of having 7 of my own).

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Rachel. It was fun coming to yours and getting to know you a little bit! :-)

I have 3 siblings, and could not imagine growing up without someone to play and fight with. Itty Bity should have a sibling too (hint, hint). :)

Miranda said...

Great Not Me's! Bummer about the leak, and about all the laundry of towels that you had to do too.
Thanks for stopping by our blog. The best gift you can give your child is a sibling. ;)

I feel for you on the laundry front. We had to swap out our hot water heater over the weekend due to a snotty inspector from the state. And it certainly was not me who stood shocked when my husband said there wouldn't be any hot water until after another trip to home depot and about 4 PM that afternoon. He started this project around 10 that morning...

Stacy said...

Uh, wow, 500 pictures around a lake?? I took about half that many on our weeklong vacation to Sonoma and Yosemite. You two are a little shutter happy with your new camera, huh? ;)

And Itty Bit DEFINITELY needs a little sister. Yes, those boys need a little girl to keep them in line. Uh huh!
