My first Not Me! Monday of 2009

Last year's Not Me! Monday's were so much fun, that I decided to keep doing them this year! Check out MckMama's blog for more Not Me! Monday!

So, I'm going to start off 2009 by telling you the things that haven't happened this week.

I did not attempt to put two 1-year-old's in the same room for a nap. If I did do that, of course it worked!

It wasn't me who bought her very first Christmas present...for next Christmas.

I have been on the treadmill every day since January 1st. Really. I have. If I haven't done it everyday, of course I did it just one day!

I did not stuff my baby into a big Christmas mug, to take pics like I did last year. She was not busting out of the mug because she has gotten so tall. My 4 year old did not decide that he wanted to sit in the mug as well. Nor did his tiny bum fit in the mug.

My husband did not eat an entire box of taquitos...bulk box of taquitos...by himself. In just 3 days!!! Oh, wait, I apologize. *I* had 1. Dylan had 1. The other 23 were NOT eaten by him.

My children did not sleep until at least 11, every morning this week. They are, without a doubt, completely back on schedule after all the holiday excitement!

My Christmas tree and decorations are not still up. I am not refusing to take them down, simply because that means that I no longer have an excuse as to why all the Christmas toys are still all over the house.

Lexie has not been singing, "Ba-ba Bells! Ba-ba Bells!" 24/7. I do not think it's the cutest thing EVER!

Speaking of Lexie, she is not awake in her crib, singing Ba-ba Bells right at this very moment. Why on Earth she woke up and decided to sing Jingle Bells is beyond me.

I have not been wearing the same pair of The-World's-Most-Comfortable-Pajamas to bed every night since Tuesday, even though I bought a second pair. That would just be gross.


  1. Nothing is gross when it comes to being comfortable in my book. Great list.

  2. Mmm... comfy pj's sound great right now. It is cold, so being comfy is great, not gross!

  3. You're hilarious, my friend.

    You're first Christmas present for next year? Seriously?? And the box of Taquitos...bulk Taquitos has me rolling on the floor. That is so our house....just insert me for your husband, though. :) Did I just admit that?

    Our kids are seriously just about the same ages...do you mind me asking their birthdates? Mine were Nov. 19, 2004, and Jan. 15, 2007. I want to follow your blog if that's okay! :)


  4. My Christmas Tree is still up too. My excuse is all the Christmas toys are in the way of taking down the tree.

    Have a great day

  5. You're awesome. I'm totally hysterical, which is not the best thing to be AT WORK! My bad.

    Just been catching up on your entries...you're much better at frequent blogging than I've been. I love reading about your kids and your life.

    Miss you!


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
