Not Me Monday!


Here we are again---it's Monday morning. I keep thinking I won't be able to come up with any more, "Not Me's", but ya know....I just keep on NOT doing/saying things that would qualify! HA!

Click on the TITLE (not the picture) above to go to MckMama's Blog.


Soooooo, No matter what anyone tells you............


*****I was extremely on top of the ball last week for Not Me Monday and was not too late to add my name to Mr. Linky on MckMama's blog, so this week I did not actually do Not Me Monday on Sunday morning as to not miss it again...

*****I have not changed a poopy diaper for the last 2691 days of my life, so when my husband asked if I smelled the baby and I said, "ummmm no I sure didn't"... I was not lying and I didn't feel the least bit happy about saying...you smelt it you change it!

*****I did not get out a calculator and do the math to make a point about how many actual days I have been changing diapers....because that would just be silly and time consuming!

*****After the 5 day fall break weekend with all four kids all day...plus my husband, on Tuesday morning I did not allow my middle two boys to mindlessly watch the "Bee Movie" three times in a row while I tried to recover my house...Nope because I would never let the TV be a babysitter...(even though I pay the cable company way more than I would an actual babysitter), nor would I let my house get in disarray!

*****I did not make taking the trash from the house to the outdoor trash can my oldest sons job because I hate doing it...I did it because it's a great chance to teach him responsibility.

*****I do not have a ton of laundry to put away from last week, because I did it last week! (this seems to not be becoming a trend??!!)

See Ya'll next week!

I believe my husband is on to me about the diaper thing. Only took him 5 years. Cute!

We do the 'you smell, you change it' at our house too, LOL! Either that, or I will smell it, and have to suddently go to the bathroom or take a shower as my little one is running towards his Daddy! LOL

I really enjoyed reading your "not me" list. (I am getting ready to post one.) I smiled when I ended up on your page. I have 4 kids (7,5,3 and 11 months) and the first 3 are boys -so I totally know what your days are like! I also checked out your Thankful Thursday list. I do Thankful Thursdays, as well, and it has been such a wonderful excerise for me!

So funny!!!! Found you from MckMama's blog. :) I love the one about watching Bee Movie 3 times in a row. I would SO never let my kids do that. :) And I know all about "you smell it you change it!!!!" :)

I am so guilty of pretending not to smell the dirty diaper! If he smelled it first then he can change it!

Oh, the joy of having a child old enough to take the trash out...or iron for that matter, since I hate to iron.

But, I'd never delegate ironing to one of my children because I didn't like it. It'd only be to teach responsibility too.

Tiff

p.s. Yea to families with 4 children! Yours are adorab..I mean so handsome.

please...LIZ....we all know the smelly diaper trick...don't act like it's some gift to all mothers...

i just choose to understand and change the diaper, for you....how's that!

by the way, when i'm around the kids...i change as many as you do...it's all relative....

but that's ok...you are still the BEST!!!! and i will change a poopy diaper FOR YOU tomorrow, without letting you lie to me.... :)
