Not Me Monday!

Not Me! Monday was born out of MckMama's desire to admit some of her imperfections and reveal a few moments she'd rather forget. You may find it therapeutic to join in and do the same thing... I sure do!

I did NOT let my daughter eat dry pancake batter straight from the mixing bowl the other morning. I also did NOT bother to take pictures of this hilarious activity!I am NOT extremely disappointed that I didn't get to drive across the border last week to do a little shopping and to meet (in person!) my bloggy friend Tiff from Still Seeking Sanity. Due to the chaos of figuring out what is wrong with my foot, that trip has been postponed. Honestly, I probably could have managed the trip across, but I really didn't want to chance getting asked by the border patrol why I was harboring a nuclear weapon inside my body! Tiff... the trip IS going to happen very soon! I PROMISE!

I am NOT still waiting to find out the results from my bone scan! This means that I also am NOT still going crazy waiting to learn when I can start working out again. I will NOT admit that I really just want to get back to the gym so that I can see what crazy treadmill girl is going to do next to top running backwards on the thing! And I also will NOT admit that I am anxious to try to run backwards AND sideways on the treadmill myself. Of course, I would only do such craziness if I am alone in the gym for no one to witness my own stupidity. (Which also means that there would be no one there to call an ambulance for me when I fall off an break my neck... maybe I need to rethink this idea!)

Reagan and I have NOT spent the last 4 days in our bathing suits outside soaking up the sun for nearly 8 hours each day! If this were the true, I would NOT allow her to use our backyard as her potty, and I would certainly NOT crack up laughing each time that she "waters" our lawn! I also would most definitely NOT be jealous of my three year old platinum blonde bombshell who now has a better tan than her mom!
And finally, I did NOT ask my precious daughter to do something for me last week, only to hear her reply, "Not right now Mom, I'm busy working on my blog!" as she was playing on her princess laptop. Hmmm, I wonder where she has heard that before?!

Happy Not Me Monday, everyone! I'm off to read all about what everyone else hasn't done this week!

Your daughter is so pretty and my own daughter would love the princesss dress she is wearing. My husband is a lot darker than me and so my kids are also darker than me. I look like a ghost next to them.

I'd like to read your daughter's blog. ;) What is the address?

Ha! No way! How cute is that? Her blog, I have no idea who she could have learned that from!

I'm jealous of her tan too!

That first picture - hilarious! I have never tried DRY pancake batter but I do admit to licking the bowl of raw batter (wet) after making the pancakes!

The blog comment is too funny. She is so cute!

She did not, she did not, she did not say something about blogging. That is hilarious. What is even more funny is that she has her own laptop. Like Mommy, like daughter, I suppose! :)

Oh, and how on earth are we not following you? I am an utter moron and finally fixed that.

LOL at the blog comment. Yeah, my kids have heard that too. Or I'll say, "In a few minutes, I need to reply to these comments.."

I'm jealous of your weather. It's currently raining over here and I am not amused.

jennie.newland said...

Just found your blog over at MackMamas and I think it is too cute! Your little girl is too cute!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

That was awesome. All if it, except for the missing shopping/visiting trip. that makes me all sad.
But.... sitting in the sun? Eating dry batter? Up my alley! Reagan looks adorable in these shots.

This was a wonderful post. I think I laughed through it all. I love the end with the swimming photos. This week I am off to get a new suit. What fun shopping that will be. I also love the little comment at the end. Hope you have a great day!

That was hilarious about her comment about the blog. She is too much and definitely a cutie patootie. I love her pig tails. Thanks for visiting the 5 Moms today & leaving a comment on my Mom Brain post.
You have a cute place here.
On my other blog I am having a giveaway that your little one would look really cute in, if you want to check it out.

You better remember the blog comment forever--that will be a funny one to laugh about for years to come!! What a funny kid she must be. It's amazing what our daughters pick up on at this age :)
