Not Me Monday

It’s Not Me Monday again!

Guess who's back?!?

Isn’t it exciting that MckMama and Stellan are home? That has to feel so good!
Continuing to pray for the little guy – that his heart will be healthy.

Come join for some free therapy!

I did not get major baby fever this week. Certainly not the highly contagious sort that occurs when an absolutely perfect brand new baby is sleeping in your arms. Congratulations to my cousin, for proving those docs wrong for the FOURTH time : )


~

I’m a nice mom. I don’t get a kick out of watching my kiddo get waaaay concerned about a car wash. I always thought they were fun, can’t figure out why Itty Bit gets totally worried.

And instead of consoling him, I wouldn’t have been documenting his trepidation…


~

We took Itty Bit to a youth spring fair today. Upon paying admission, we went to get our wrists stamped.

The poor stamp lady did not totally freak out when I held my hand out for the stamp. I wouldn’t have realized a bit too late that that dumb bump from the accident might be a bit alarming to someone who hasn't lived with it for a year, LOL.

What do you think?


~

For Itty Bit’s first ride ever, I did not stand in the roller coaster line and gush about how much fun it would be.



I have no idea where Itty Bit gets his double eyebrows… though I’m sure my kind bloggy buddies will have an opinion?

~

Okay, so where was the Not Me in that last part?




Go back and look at the picture again.

My husband did NOT take a picture of the green thong on the girl in front of us.

Trust me, the next picture was worse, but this is a PG blog…

~

So after climbing in and telling Itty Bit to raise his arms, he did not promptly get very concerned once we started moving. In fact, I didn’t think he even liked it. He had a death grip on the seat bar, was totally silent, and didn’t crack anything but a serious expression.

So imagine my surprise when this didn’t happen when it was over:

Yeah, mean mom again… don’t cry for him, he went on the motorcycle ride next. And feel free to tell me that the processing on this picture did wonders for my double chin.

~

And to round out the $469 we spent on ride tickets, I talked Mr. Daddy into going on the scary slide with Itty Bit.

See, those stairs scare the beejeebies out of me (by the way… check out the red squiggly line that happens when you spellcheck BEEJEEBIES… it wants to change it to “beaneries”???)

No worries – the boys did not have a great time on the rickety stairs and meltingly hot slide.







~

I did not get into a headbutting contest with a miniature goat this weekend. I did not majorly lose.

~

This week, it was not me who was thoroughly mortified to feel a large crash and see ceramic shards flying everywhere at Target. Realizing that Itty Bit was responsible for the huge mess, I couldn't help but laugh when I saw the look of total confusion on his face.

See, he did not think that this piggy bank was a real ball - and accordingly expect it to bounce!



~

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!

OK...that bump looks painful! And who doesn't think that a car wash is scary? I still freak out if my tire is not in the ridge just right ;) Great post!!!

Lisa said...

Funny! The red stairs freaked me out, though! LOL And don't worry, we take pictures of our babies crying all the time! LOL

He And Me + 3 said...

Ok, I totally know how you both love to snap pictures of people's cracks...LOL so I totally noticed that thong and was going to comment about it until you mentioned it, now I just won't. Nice shot Mr. Daddy:)
Cracking up at the Target experience, because Stunt Man grabbed the same ball & wanted to bounce it, but I have the reflexes of a cat & caught him before he thought about bouncing it. LOL
Thanks for the laughs!
hugs,
Mimi
PS...those stairs were freakin me out too. I am so afraid of heights.

Melissa said...

Ya know I wouldn't of noticed the green thong if ya hadn't said anything! I actually thought it was a man! oops! Umh, seriously though, what a fun time at that amusement park. Oops up at Target --- whoda thunk that wouldn't bounce?

Elaine at Matters of the Heart) said...

I am cracking up. This was so funny. Glad you had a good weekend...

Mr. Daddy said...

Ok DEAR!!! it most definitely was not me who did not see the thong until you pointed it out...LOL

Rachel said...

Oh DEAR, you silly goose. I figured you took the picture to get back at me for what Mimi was referring to! :)

Though I was truly disturbed by the realization of how goshdarn close that thong was to my head, once I saw your lovely photo :)

Liz (Loving Mom 2 Boys) said...

Oh poor kid....how sad he must have been when that fun ball didn't bounce!!!

Thanks for the chuckle tonight :)

Following Him said...

I so love the pict of you laughing and itty bitty crying...HILARIOUS! WoW...that is sure one BIG slide...i would not have been scared :) Have a great Monday!

*snicker* on the thong, and it's disturbing proximity to your face! Oh my.. that's scary! Not as scary as car washes and roller coasters, but still... ewww. I love the pic of Itty Bit and you after the ride; oh, what a concerned mommy you are--NOT! heh. And that slide? Oh my. When Bug Hunter was maybe 3, I was on antidepressants (tmi but totally necessary for this story). I was so mellow; we did a slide like that several times. A year later? No happy juice was flowing in my veins, and I got maybe halfway up the stairs and FROZE. Couldn't go up; couldn't go down. I've honestly blocked out what happened; I think I did make it to the top, but if I look back in the local paper's archives, there could possibly be a story about fire and rescue vehicles having to get a crazed, frozen woman down from the slide at the fair. Never. again.

I have a habit of giggling sometimes when the boy breaks into tears. Not when he's hurt or anything, but when he is freaking out over nothing his face just contorts and cracks me up. Oh I'm a bad mom. Thanks for the giggles and hopefully Itty Bitty is recovered from his experience!

wife.mom.nurse said...

His little scared face is too cute.

Funny how one thing freaks him out, yet next he is having a blast on the giant slide. LOL!

Double brow? What double brow? ")

Great not me post. Have missed them!

p.s. DARLING BABY at the top!~

wife.mom.nurse said...

p.s. OH MY GOSH that wrist, yikes!!!

momof3darlings said...

HAHAHAHAHA Nice thong! LOL Yeah....that was "accident" right? ;)

Your wrist does NOT look right. Seriously...get to the doctor....YUCK-O! LOL Does it HURT?

You CRACK me up!

No pun intended. ;)

Sarah said...

In high school the red squiggles wanted to change one of my uses of the word "people" to "peopling." I swear it's true! So I went into class the next day fully armed with the tid bit and we spend at least half an hour of class trying to figure out when, or how, peopling would be an acceptable word. Just another day in English class....because this had to happen during the crafing of a fabulous English paper, in which "peopleing" had no part of.

brian said...

Ok, so everyone spotted the green thong... And then used the term "CRACK me up" to describe it...

Excuse me, your IRONY is showing!

Funny post!

Carebear said...

Ewwww at your wrist. LOL at "My husband did NOT take a picture of the green thong on the girl in front of us." My affection for mr. daddy just grows and grows ;o) And LOVE LOVE LOVE the pic of you laughing and itty bit crying. Poor kid. *snicker*
