Not Me Monday

It’s Not Me Monday again!

Hopefully we’ll have good news from MckMama soon.

Please click on Stellan’s pic in the sidebar for the latest updates. Still praying for a miracle for his heart.

Come join for some free therapy!

Mr. Daddy is not thoroughly alarmed that I am attempting to tone and limber up by continuing ballet exercises and stretches at home. More accurately, he’s not thoroughly alarmed that Itty Bit is actually quite good at mimicking his mama.

Never overheard in our household, “My boy ain’t never gonna be a ballerina”.
(insert Tim Allen growling)

After a feverish day and night, Itty Bit did not wake up at an obscenely early hour and say “Daddy, make a mess”. Of course both of us would have figured out what he meant by that, instead of discovering that the poor kid had puked in the night, then just went back to sleep. That would be (gag) disgusting.

~

Itty Bit did not end up getting EIGHT baths in two days. And it wouldn’t have been because the poor little guy couldn’t keep anything down or in. Course that didn’t mean umpteen loads of laundry either.

Not like this whole post was gonna be about yucky stuff, but I think I have finally been ultimately grossed out.

I thought I was somewhat accustomed to the usual icky things moms have to deal with.

But tonight took the cake.

Mr. Daddy did not decide to tickle our poor sick kiddo directly behind where I was seated on the couch.

Itty Bit did not then start to cough.
And cough.
Then gag.

(You know what’s coming, don’t you).

And I did not suddenly feel a gush of wet warmth from my head down to my underwear.

Yes, that’s right folks.
my underwear.

The kiddo did not end up projectile vomiting in an impressive display that included my hair, shirt, shorts, and of course – that lovely gap that allowed it to in fact reach every last article of clothing I was wearing.

I did not immediately rebuke my incredible sense of smell (so much for the advantages of one sense increasing when another is gone), and head for the shower. Itty Bit did not totally pitch a fit about taking a shower too. After passing the wet kiddo off to Mr. Daddy for pajamas, he did not then pitch a fit about being removed from the shower.

Man… has it not been one of those weeks?!?!

So… go check out what everyone else didn’t do this week!

Hey y’all – come back tomorrow for this week’s True Story Tuesday – where we link to stories that actually happened… ya know, in real life. Join in – we’d love to hear the unedited version of a Not Me episode! And yeah... I'm still working on convincing Mr. Daddy to write this week's!

Oh man, what a week. Yuck on the stomach bugs, not my favorite. I pray he is feeling better and that you have a better week.

Good for you doing some exercises! I need too. I am so sorry about the bug. That is one sickness I can totally do with out. We (praise the Lord) have managed to avoid it this season. Hope that itty bitty is all better soon.

I can't imagine what you will have to share tomorrow after that story!

Oh, you poor thing and poor itty bit. I was unloaded on quite a bit when Kai was a baby, but it was just milk. Now with real food that had to have been quite AWFUL. Hope he is feeling much better now.

Oh, and Kai puked in the bed and fell back asleep once before, too. Ewwwwww!

Oh that is just awful! My hubby can't even be in the room with puke so I always get that clean up duty. I have had him puke down my front once, but I think you got it worse. Hope the house startes getting back to normal soon!

At my ouse, if one kid barfs, I rush the other one out of the room...

Why? Two words: Sympathetic barfing!

W.W. does yoga with me so why not ballet? I hear it's great for muscle tone and coordination for football players too. :)

Sorry about the pukes though. I hope he's feeling better soon.
