"Not me!" Monday

So, the MOTYs have asked for further proof of my exemplary mothering to be considered for the annual Mama of the Year Awards. (Apparently someone is running a smear campaign against me!) I provided them with the following list of things I'd never ever do in order to show them that I'm the best candidate for this completely fictional prestigious award:

I did NOT run out of deodorant and have to use Scott's, much to his disgust. I did NOT smell like a man all day, much to my disgust!

I did NOT know unequivocally that Jack was sick when he looked at Logan dreamily and said, "I love you, brother."

I did NOT have a panic attack when I realized that our take-out menus were missing.

I did NOT order a pizza for delivery so that I could use my dinner-making time to bake a dessert instead.

I did NOT tell the boys that I would play hide-and-seek with them and then let them hide while I "looked" for them by sitting on my butt blogging and shouting, "Oh, where are you?" occasionally.

I am NOT spending way too much time blogging thereby ignoring Jeff and Loyd. Wait...what are my kids' names again?
MckMama is not hosting "Not me!" Monday today as her youngest is in the hospital having some major heart trouble. I'm thinking good thoughts that Stellan's little heart stops beating so fast and is able to come home to the rest of his family soon.


  1. Dessert is always my favorite thing to cook in the kitchen! I'm with you on that. Have a great Monday.

  2. LOL about the hide and seek!! Did they finally catch on to you?

  3. I am in tears, laughing about the "Hide & Seek", and I most absolutely have NEVER had to resort to using Dh's deodorant, oh heck no, never... especially not on a day I had to work, like, ewwww! LOLOL!

  4. thanks for making me laugh on a 'hard-to-get-up-Monday morning'! LOL! hope you have some pretty deoderant this morning! ;)

  5. Thanks for tagging me the other day, look out tomorrow for my post - but I apologize in advance.... :)

  6. Love the hide and seek trick! That's just brilliance.

  7. Girl you are too funny!!

    Do you really remember your kids names??
    I go through the kids, the dogs, my husband, my brothers, your kids :)and then finally someone answers me!

  8. You are a crack up! More accurately I should say you are brilliant! What a great hide and seek trick. Too funny! And to order pizza so you can make dessert, flippin' awesome! Two of my favorite things!

  9. Hide and seek, I like that one! Who remembers their kids names? I go through a few names and then I say, "hey, what's your name again?" drives the kids crazy =)

  10. That's how I used to play hide and week with my boys too!

  11. LOL
    I LOVE the hide & seek one! Hilarious!

    Coming over from SITS! Welcome!

  12. First, we all wish MckMama's little one the best!
    And I totally found the take out menu for out favorite pizza place in the car. Sadly, I didn't really need to bring it inside because A)it's memorized and B)I already know the phone number by heart and C)we basically don't even need to call in because they already knwo which day we order and what we want. *sigh* Is that bad, or does it make me the pizza place? =)

    Stopping by to wish you a big welcoem to the SITSahood! Look forward to seeing you around!

  13. I have to admit to also going into a panic when I've misplaced the take out menus. :(
