Not Me Monday!

It’s MckMama's Not Me Monday again!

This week was a bit of an adventure...

It was not me who got dragged/pushed around the yard by my horse who was refusing to load into the trailer because her buddy was bucking and throwing a fit and the in-law’s dog was jumping all over.

Doggie Doc wanted to play, Kona did NOT.

It was not me who got exasperated and loudly yelled:
I.WILL.SHOOT.THAT.DOG
as he continued to bounce in front of my freaked out horse.

It was not me who looked up to see my sweet mother-in-law standing there smiling as ever in spite of hearing my lovely threat.

(You have to understand... this woman is near sainthood).

~

It was not me who managed to burn two cakes. I mean, they put the mix in a box to make it easier… how hard is it to add water and eggs and oil and stick in an oven? Not too hard apparently… just difficult for your husband to hear the beeping timer when you crank up the music.

~

It was not me who lent our naturally-caffeinated toddler a frappucino (that he promptly claimed as his and refused to return). I wouldn't be dumb enough to post any incriminating evidence on the blog, right?

~

It was not my sweet obedient 2-year old who unscrewed the little turning-clicker-thingy (yes, that's official) from my desk lamp. It was not Mr. Daddy who suggested looking through the garbage for it, since our child does NOT have a penchant for throwing perfectly good things away.

~

The same child has not begun calling me by my given name. I certainly do not look at him in annoyance/bewilderment because it took me long enough to become a Mommy and I’d like to stay “Mommy” at least through toddlerhood! Though I have to admit it’s amusing to see him hollering, “Rachel… Raaaaa-chel! Come see me in the wagon!” No wait… I did NOT just admit that.

~

It was not me who had to admit to my coworker that I was a poor choice for the agency bowling tournament... since I suck at even the Wii version.

(And my mother did NOT totally knock me out in the boxing game her first time ever playing. We did not totally chalk that up to her years of experience beating the stubbornness out of me as a child).

~

While bent over next to Itty Bit’s carseat picking up after his gleeful distribution of goldfish crackers, it was not me who suddenly realized that the shoe he was swinging an inch from my face was encased in doggie doo-doo. It was not me who nearly dropped him getting him out of the car so as not to let that dastardly mess get on my clothes!

Come on… beat that. I dare you! And join the fun at MckMama’s!

HAAAA!!! OK when you said "Shoot that dog" I immediately thought of Fireproof when he goes outside to beat up the trashcan and then looks up to see his neighbor watching him! BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Oh dear...caffeine in a toddler. That's totally asking for an 11pm bedtime LOL! Our kids rarely sleep the way it is, so we don't give them anything with caffeine in it.

Calling you by your name made me laugh. I have two stepkids who call me by my name. When our youngest daughter was old enough to talk she started calling me by my name too. She called my Faith for about three months. Then my son convinces her I was MOM! it was kinda funny.

Great list! I'm laughing over the shoe covered in dog-doo. YUCK! I have never been dragged around by a horse refusing to load into a trailer, either. Or maybe if I have, I've chosen to forget!

Paige said...

You are a hoot! My 3 yr old loves Frappucino's too.: )

Following Him said...

What a hoot...a 2 yr old calling you by your first name :)

I too have a habit of calling things "thingie, dooflatchie" etc... People may make fun of me, but they ALWAYS know what I am talking about!!

I'm laughing so hard I can't stand it! You're too funny. Loved them all!

Have a great week,
