"Not Me!" Monday

Thought I'd give this a shot this week.

"Are you feeling guilty for pretending not to notice as your child sucked toothpaste out of the tube? Feel like a slouch for wearing your husband's big, baggy t-shirts all day? We'll don't! Not Me! Monday was born out of my desire to admit some of my imperfections and reveal a few moments I'd rather forget. You may find it therapeutic to join in and do the same thing!"

I certainly did NOT let my daughter run around naked for three days during the heat wave. NOPE! And when she asked to get dressed I certainly did NOT tell her "No honey, it's too hot."

I also did NOT and would NEVER have an emotional breakdown over the weather. When it hit 95* INSIDE my house one night, I did NOT cry and bawl to my husband threatening to move out the very next day. I also did NOT demand that he go to the store and buy air conditioners after he worked 12 hours. And he certainly did NOT tell me to suck it up. NOPE! My husband would NEVER say that to me!

I did NOT shed a bit of a tear when I had to throw out my old coffee maker. NOPE! I would NEVER get attached to an inanimate object like that.

I did NOT reveal the name of the new baby to my mother, only to have it met with "Hmm...." Then I did NOT badger her about hating it until she finally said "Well, I'm not the one that has to grow up with it." Then I certainly did NOT cry after she left because I was so disappointed.

I would NEVER spend 20 minutes peeling the dead skin off my husbands back. That's disgusting and something I would NEVER EVER dream of doing. And of course, if DID do something like that, I would NEVER admit how I try to peel the biggest piece possible, then show it to him. And he would NEVER tell me how disgusting I am. NOPE! NEVER!

Think "Not Me Monday" Sounds like something you want to participate it? Well then, most certainly do NOT head on over to My Charming Kids and check it out!

Oh honey, I'm sorry about your momma :/ I would've cried, too. I had something very similar happen w/ my ex's family when we named my lil guy.

I also LOVED when you described how you DIDN'T pick the dead skin off of your hubby's back ;) I NEVER pop my hubby's random skin blemishes and then try to show him what pearls of disgustingness I've retrieved.

Thanks for sharing with such backward honesty!
