"Not Me!" Monday

So, the MOTYs called. You know...the MOTYs are the one who hand out the Mama of the Year Award annually. Anyway, apparently I'm in the running. I had to supply them a record of good deeds that clearly show how worthy I am of this completely fictional prestigious award. Here were just a few tidbits about myself that I shared with them:

I did NOT forget to make dinner and then serve the family fast-food on the floor "picnic style" because I was too lazy to clean the table off.

I did NOT sneak a Candy Cane Joe-Joe while the boys were not looking. I did NOT eat that cookie and avert my face when the kids got near in case they could smell my cookie breath.

I did NOT seriously, seriously, seriously consider cutting Jack's hair while he slept. I did NOT contemplate how we would get all that hair out of his bed. I did NOT consider how traumatized he might be if he woke up with me standing over him with a pair of scissors.

I did NOT have popcorn for dinner.

I did NOT tell the boys that the candy that came with the gingerbread house kit was just pretend and if they ate it it would make them sick.

  1. Ha ha ha, you told them the candy would make them sick? I should've tried that!!! =0)

    Thanks for stopping by to check out my NOT ME's!

  2. Oh, these are GREAT! :)
    Love your picnic on the floor- I've had to do that a time or two!

  3. Wow! I do NOT wish I had used the "candy trick" with my Lucy. She has NOT picked EVERY gingerbread house we have clean!!!

    Merry Christmas!

  4. This made me LOL! I have tried to hide my junk eating from my kids many times, only to have one of them smell my breath and say, "HEY! DID you eat a cookie???"
    Those little detectives get us every time!

  5. LOVE your list...I do not love sharing my dirty laundry either :) Hope ya had a wonderful Monday!

  6. Carey...your NMM post is making me giggle!!! Out loud! I loved the one about averting your head so they wouldn't smell your breath...totally also something I would NOT do :). My kids always pause and then give me that "knowing" look before saying, "What did you eat!"

    Have a VERY merry Christmas, girl!

  7. Did your kids buy that "the candy will make you sick" line? I've got to try it on my candy-obssessed toddler!

  8. Love your sense of Ha Ha and your NMM!!!! Too funny! I'm off to check your other NMM!

  9. we have a lot of candy obsession here!!! Merry Christmas! Jen


Yeah! I love comments! Feel free to leave me one (or two or three).
But remember what your mama said..."If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."
