"Not me!" Monday

The competition is getting fierce for the MOTYs (Mama of the Year Awards). As usual I was a perfect wife and mother (and daughter and friend) this week. Here are just a few examples of my exemplary mothering showcasing why I deserve this completely fictional prestigious award:

In a desperate effort to keep the family from going stir-crazy at home, I did NOT drag them to the beach though it was overcast and 56 degrees.

I did NOT let Logan eat so much T@rget popcorn right before dinner that he threw up as soon as we parked the car at the restaurant. I did NOT then say, "Well, at least now he has room in his belly to eat dinner!"

When writing a post about how Scott and I started our relationship, I did NOT get lots of major a few minor details wrong.

I am NOT ridiculously behind on updating the monthly photo blog I maintain because I'm blogging cleaning the house, doing laundry, washing the dishes and spending tons of quality time with my boys.

I did NOT "pretend" to not hear the boys arguing because I was "busy" writing an email. I did NOT actually think to myself, "Well, it's time they (a three year old and two year old) learned valuable life lessons about sharing and negotiations."

  1. I DID NOT pretend to ignore my boys too, when they were fighting for the bigger slice of pizza as I WAS NOT reading your comment.

  2. Ignore my children? Do I HAVE children? Oh wait, I do! Oops!

  3. I never hear me kids when I am blogging either! ;)

  4. I love the one about the kids arguing. I do that all the time.

  5. Hye if there's no blood, it's not really a fight :)
    I ignore it too and have since they were about that age, until I hear the whack or the crying. I figure untilt hat point I'm beating my head against the wall anyway.

  6. Well, I did give my granddaughter Girl Scout cookies for breakfast. Not many just two. But I am a grandma I can do stuff mom's can't do.:)
    Don't tell her mother.

  7. My children become sweet little angels when I am blogging and never interrupt, whine, complain, scream, fight, or beg...yes, I am imagining all this...back to my dream world :) Loved your Not Me's!

  8. Kids? Ignore them? All the time! How else could I get anything done? I think one has been hounding me for a temporary tattoo all day but I have yet to comply. I will...eventually.

  9. I like how you turned ignoring the boys into an educational experience for them! Love it!

  10. Sometimes you just gotta let them duke it out. LOL I am learning that more now that the kids are older and they still tattle. Ugh.
    Hope Logan feels better after emptying his belly.


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."
