Not Me! Monday


What time is it?! It's Not Me! Monday time! What time is it?! It's Not Me! Monday!

Did I sufficiently pump you up enough to join MckMama and the rest of us by being brutally honest about this past week and, of course, living to tell about it? Do you have Not Me! Monday spirit? Well, I do! So here it goes...


I most definitely have not resorted to grabbing camera and snapping pictures before I discipline floss-unraveling Monsters


or tantrum throwing toddlers


Not Me! What would ever make you think that I would do something like that?

When we took our little excursion to OMSI this past week, we absolutely did not find a dead, cooked? whole chicken laying in the middle of the sidewalk in downtown Portland. That would just be too weird. But if that had happened I later would not have found myself wishing that I had taken a picture of the disgusting mass to prove that I was not making up that crazy story. Nope. Not me!


And I would absolutely never write about it in back to back posts.

And while at OMSI, after having been OK with the fact that the Boa snake was out of it's cage and my children were touching it, did not quickly vacate the premises when they decided to take a Giant Hissing Cockroach from it's abode. Because I'm still unsure what the purpose of those would be and I have no desire to find out. Definitely not me.

And lastly, you would not have found me beaming when my hubby who never reads my blog read my post about "the chicken" and was cracking up. It would not be most important to me that my spouse find my blog most interesting and creative, and I would not hope that he will continue to read it on a regular basis. Nope. Not Me!

Think that's about it for this week. Not much can top the chicken.

So....TAG! You're it! Don't spoil the fun!

AAAaagh, how'd you do that so fast!?? Congrats on #1. I was hurrying so fast I couldn't get last week's link deleted apparently and linked to last week's post and had to go back and do it again for this weeks and ended up in the 100's!! This is getting crazy!!

Kim said...

Looks like you were first! Congratulations!

Charisse said...

I, too, have NOT been known to snap quick pictures of my daughter's lovely forays into the troublesome. And I HAVE NEVER snapped shots of her in precarious positions before helping her out of them, either. That would be wrong of us, right?

I got here via MckMama's page and I think your children are adorable!!!

Natalie Porter said...

Suzi said...

Congrats on being first! You go girl! I have never found a floss unraveling monster in my house either! hehe. I would have loved to have been there for the dead, cooked chicken, that would have been hilarious! Have a great day, happy not me'ing.

*sara* said...

Great Not Me! moments and congrats on being 1st with Mr. Linky!! I'm not a mommy yet, but grabbing the camera before disciplining is something I would never do either!

Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

A cooked chicken?!? Wonder if that was the same one I bought and then left at the grocery store...?!? Not me! ;-)

Sturgmom said...

I clicked on your link from MCK page.

I love it when my husband thinks I'm funny! I know I'm really good when it makes him laugh.

And if you find out what God's purpose was in creating hissing cockroaches let me know. Because I can't think of a single good purpose for them.

Kelli said...

Great Not Me's!!! The floss thing is too cute!! Defintely something my boys have done before!! They used to love unrolling the toilet paper too!! Have a great week!

Dawn said...

Congrats, girl!!!!

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

Great post! I have never taken pictures of my kids being bad before disciplining them, either!

Kelly said...

Loved your list!!

My youngest daughter (2Y 10M) just got into the dental floss last week. Oh my gosh, she had it all over the place too. But, it was nowhere near as messy as the toothpaste she later got into. I should have taken pictures for comparison, huh?! :p LOL!!

I have lots of pics of my kids emptying toilet paper rolls and videos of tantrums )to show them when they're older). : )

Mighty M said...

Congrats on being #1. I think the chicken story is so weird. But I guess if I saw a dead chicken lying in the road I"d rather it be a cooked one. Love the attack on the floss pic too!
