"Not me!" Monday

So, I've been out shopping for my gown to wear to the MOTYs. You know...the MOTYs are the annual Mama of the Year Awards. I heard through the grapevine that I'm a shoo in. It's a good thing I didn't do any of the following or I could be out of the running for this completely fictional prestigious award:

I did NOT do a "happy dance" on the first day back to school.

I have NOT resorted to bribery everytime Logan barely glances at the potty.

I have NOT forgotten to have the boys brush their teeth in...well, I'm not sure how long. I would never have NOT done that..."dats 'gusting!" as Logan would say and especially in light of Logan's potty bribery being sugar-based.

I did NOT seriously consider giving Logan a mohawk haircut just to try and offset Jack's insane hair.

I did NOT sit each of my kids in the sink of a public restroom to wash the sand off them as though it were their private bathtub.

I did NOT bribe Jack with a popsicle if he could convince Logan to pee on a tree at the park.

  1. You are too funny. I am loving the popcicle and peeing on the tree. I think it must have worked, because I do remember popcicle pictures. LOL Isn't potty training boys so fun?

  2. That is too much Carey. I finally gave this Not Me thing a shot for the first time today. Now that I look at yours though Im wondering if mine is just too short. Oh well, Im learning.

  3. OMG I am CRACKIN' UP! I love it!

    Happy Not Me Monday!

  4. I love it... This is fun...I love my girls..but boys seem like an adventure.

  5. Nice bribery...I especially love the pee on the tree one! And I did look up the wild hair...also nice! Beats out my bed head for sure!

  13. LOL I'm so pleased to meet a fellow nominee for MOTY!!! LOL

    My middle daughter was bribed to go "number two's" on the potty using lollies, and for months called "number two's" lollies..."Mummy I have to go do a lolly" in the shopping centre is almost funny;-)

  14. Peeing for Popsicles. He must have liked that! What little boy wouldn't pee on a tree for a popsicle?

    That's great!

But remember what your mama said..."If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."
