not me! monday

it's not me! monday again! after taking a not me! vacation last monday, i'm ready to go this week! (although it is NOT almost tuesday as i'm writing this!)

here's what has NOT been happening the past two weeks around here:

one afternoon while sitting in the chair being disciplined, samantha certainly did NOT blow her nose on her knit capri pants. and they were NOT her white capri pants. and her nose did NOT start bleeding when she blew it on her white pants... she did NOT get into more trouble for doing that.

in an attempt to keep ryan happy and occupied one day, i did NOT let him play with the pop cans he discovered. he was NOT busy happily stacking the cans and sorting them while i was doing the dishes. after finishing the dishes it was NOT i who forgot all about him playing with the soda cans. and as i was checking my email i did NOT hear KA-POW! HISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS followed by frightened sobs. i did NOT find ryan (and everything within 8 feet) covered in pop. and it was NOT red cream soda.

i did NOT whisk him up to the bathtub (then run to get my camera) and quickly bathe him and samantha, all the while thinking about the mess that awaited me in the kitchen. after we were done with the bath i did NOT go downstairs to the kitchen and discover that ben was almost finished cleaning it up. thank you so much hun!

* * * * *
for the most part i care about my children's appearance and hygiene and make sure they wear clean clothes every day. so please, someone, tell me who let ryan sleep in the clothes that he wore during the day, and then let him wear those same clothes the next day. because it surely was NOT me!

i did NOT have a fun time taking engagement pictures yesterday, and i definitely did NOT lose track of time stay up until 2:30 am last night uploading and editing them.
* * * * *
last night ben did NOT come up with a perk of being married when he exclaimed, "you know what's so great about being married? i get to see boobies every day!" i did NOT tell him that was sooooo going on my blog. lol!

* * * * *
we have NOT had a turtle for a house guest over the weekend. she is NOT going back to her habitat in the wild tomorrow, so tonight we said goodbye to 'rosie-belle.' i thought that samantha would have a hard time telling her goodbye and that she might cry, but i was wrong. i was NOT the one who had tears in my eyes when samantha told her goodbye. samantha had NOT made this adorable card for her and she did NOT put it in rosie's "apartment" so that daddy could take it with rosie in the morning.

i am NOT hoping that we never find a stray puppy that has to stay with us for a weekend. i think i would fall apart! :-)

1. Great engagement pics! You are good!
2. I've had a kitchen floor flooded with juice before. No fun.
3. My husband totally says the same things. All the time.

Wow. i guess you, mine and Ace's hubs are all alike! Maybe it is all men?? I loved the list, now I am going to go check out your engagement pics.

Mary @ Giving Up On Perfect said...

Erin, those engagement pics are SO GOOD!!! And your poor kiddos - they kept you busy cleaning up messes last week, huh?

Ace said...

A little something for you on my blog today! Which I procrastinated about... and I know you'll procrastinate too! That's why I love you, not everyone can procrastinate as awesomely(real word?) as us.

Brooke said...
