Not Me Mondays

My Charming Kids, a blog I've been following for a few months, is authored by a pretty neat mom who has three children, ages 3, 2 and 11 months. Their fourth baby, Stellan, who is due in about 2 1/2 weeks, has heart problems and they will not know until he's born what his prognosis will be. Naturally, I was drawn to this family, as we have a lot in common! We have been praying for Stellan and I hope you will too.

MckMama, as she is called, has quite a sense of humor! I always get a kick out of her posts. She started a thing a few weeks ago called, "Not Me! Monday." We moms, especially those with little children, have a lot of these moments, don't we?! =)

So here I go with my first Monday of confessions. Oh boy. =) (Clearing throat...)

I did not stay up until 11:45 last night, knowing all the while that I would have to be up at 4:30. And I was not playing with my new photo software.

I did not make chocolate chip cookies yesterday afternoon (instead of packing!) and eat at least ten of them. And eat two of them for breakfast this morning? You've got to be kidding me!

I did not give in and give my son one before church last night. And I most certainly did not give him "the look" when he wouldn't sit still.

I did not go back to sleep this morning and make my husband pack his own lunch.

And while we were playing outside this afternoon, I most definitely did not, and would absolutely neeeever, because I'm such a germaphobe, wipe my son's dripping nose with my fingers because I didn't feel like going inside for a tissue. That would just be gross.

So, what have you been up to this week? =)


  1. The nose thing...uh-hum I have never done that with my boys...EVER! (do the words turn read when you lie?)

  2. I never made haoliday cookies last year and ate all of them before they made it to the office!

  3. Welcome to the addicting world of Not Me Monday's. Your blog is adorable! Found you on MckMama and wanted to drop in and say Hello!

  4. I found you through my charming kids. I clicked on you since I have the same blog title and a boy named Caleb. my husband also had to pack his own lunch today while the kids and I slept.

  5. I could probably NOT be guilty of each of those things! :)


  6. Let me guess...you wiped with the fingers and then on your pants?! Is so, I can't imagine why I would know such a thing!

  7. Laine...how awful...=) I find that I do not do any of those things!!=)This is funny!

  8. i have never, nor will I ever, wipe ANY of my kids noses with my fingers, sleeve of my shirt or any part of my shirt, or their own clothing!

  9. I love this! The nose thing, especially! I HAVE done that! Only in extreme cases, though! grossed myself out! Good thing I was sitting in the grass! I definitely need to add this to my own list of confessions! :) Motherhood is not for the sqeamish!


I love to hear from my readers! Thanks for taking the time to comment!
