not me! monday


not me monday is our chance as moms to confess ourselves to the world, letting our imperfections out and being able to laugh about it (it's actually very therapeutic). head over to mckmama's site to read more stories of what all the other perfect moms, like myself, did not do!

first of all, i did not forget to reload little man's diaper bag, and we did not run out of diapers at a friends house. because we did not run out of diapers, i certainly didn't borrow a size 4 diaper for my size 1 baby and let him wear it!
my older son did not pull a chair up to his toy closet and climb into the closet to play. i certainly didn't let him play in the said closet for over an hour either.


i did not wash clothes and then leave them in the laundry basket, clean, for over a week. and when those clothes were finally folded i did not leave the hang ups sitting on the back of my couch. those hangs up definitely didn't fall onto the couch and floor and of course they are not still there as i type this.

i did not go 5 days without showering, that would just be gross. it has not taken me over 2 months to get into the swing of having a toddler and a baby, and be able to manage my time well. my elliptical does not have dust on it, i don't ever forget to brush my teeth, and i never ever miss a quiet time. oh and of course i don't ever let my toddler watch tv & put my baby in the swing so i can lay on the couch and maybe... possibly... catch 15 more minutes of sleep. i would never do that.

and, last but not least, when we pulled into the walgreens pharmacy drive thru, my toddler did not say "Dinner?"

Toddlers are funny creatures aren't they?

WOW... I have tears in my eyes from laughing so hard. I want to just reach through this screen right now and give you a huge hug and say "YEAH another NORMAL mommy!" I can laugh b/c I also "have never done" things like that either ;)

LOL I am glad you finally showered and yes I have been there but tell me what mom of 6 didn't let their child play in a closet as long as they did not get in to trouble LOL
