Not Me! Monday

"Yes you did!"

"No, I didn't"

"But I saw you"

"You only thought you saw me"

"Are you sure?"

"Yep, it wasn't me, it was definitely Not me!"

Do you want to tell us what your "Not Me!" alter ego did this week?? You know what I'm talking about, those embarrassing things that are readily admitted when you can blame them on "Not Me"! Head over to MckMama's blog and tattle on Not Me! Come on, it'll be fun!
It was "Not Me!" who saw a wrapped Hershey's kiss in the parking lot of my work and contemplated picking it up and eating it. I was wrapped after all, but I refrained. Chocolate has magical powers and makes you do crazy things, but this wasn't one of them.

It was also "Not Me!" who knocked 10 pairs of glasses off of a stand by slamming into it with my shopping cart. It was not my husband who just kept walking with my son. I did not hear him say, "Who is that lady" as he quickly walked away from the mess I had created.

I did not go to 3 different stores trying to find some glasses after I realized we were down to 3 and then not even buy any! How does that even happen? I did not freak out when I opened a box to check out the glasses and my son picked one up and it broke in his hand! Nope, not me! I wouldn't even let him get the chance to pick one up because I always pay close attention. Thank God he didn't get cut!!

It was so "Not Me", who was trying to organize the freezer, with my little boy hovering close by, when a lunch freezer block fell off the top shelf. I didn't have my hands full and, since I was unable to catch the block, put my knee up to deflect it before it fell on his head. It did not slam me squarely on the knee, and since I am not a huge wuss, I didn't fall to the floor in tears. Nathan's eyes didn't get as big as saucers as he yelled, "Momma, wha happened???" over and over again. The way he was saying it was not so funny that I forgot how much it hurt and started laughing hysterically at my toddler's concern for his mommy!

What did you "not" do this week?


  1. Oh you poor thing! That had to have hurt badly!
    Hershey kiss one? LOVED.IT.!

  2. Owwie! Good save though, thats multi-tasking at its finest!
    Have a great week!

  3. aww...the kid had no idea that he was almost klonked in the head! sometimes...i wish i were a little more oblivious!

  4. Oh my gosh, sorry about your knee but thank goodness it wasn't his head. That has happened to me before and it does not feel good!!!

  5. Chocolate does have magical powers, doesn't it?! It did not make me hide 2 boxes of Girl Scout cookies waaaaay in the back of my freezer!

  6. You're brave! Sending Andrew to the store is sure to result in lots of cookies and cereal, not so much of actual food!

  7. Great not me's, I have had a frozen beef tenderloin fall out of the freezer on to my foot before so I feel you pain about the knee. The up side is at least your toddler is empathetic, mine would have just laughed histarically.

  8. You've had a rough week with knocking the glasses over and hurting your knee! Glad you didn't eat the Hershey's kiss...even though I know how tempting it had to be!

  9. I cant believe you ate the chocolate lol!

  10. Whew. Good thing that freezer block didn't fall on your knee - that sounds like it would have been painful!! ;)

  11. Nice SAVE! The things we do for them, eh?

  12. I had a knee injury last week. They hurt so darn bad. Good save on Natey's head though! Give you props for that. Too funny about hubby walking away saying "who is that lady?" totally something my hubs would do. LOl

  13. What a week of Not Me! for you :) Chocolate is evil, and it does have crazy magical powers. I'm surprised you were able to walk past it since those powers are so strong.

    I'm not sure I would have been as athletic as you and managed to hold everything still in my arms and lift my leg up to block it. Good job!

  14. Really funny Not Me's.

    You are a hero mommy, imagine how that precious little guy would have been clobbered by a flying frozen object!!!

  15. I think my favorite thing about your Not Me's is always the beginning... you're so creative with your set up each week!! : )

    I have also NOT been tempted by wrapped candy. Seriously, what's wrong with us??


What you talkin' bout Willis??
