Not Me! Monday

Welcome back to Not Me! Monday. I really look forward to my weekly therapy session, hosted by MckMama. Head on over to her blog by clicking her name or the Not Me! Monday button above.

This week has (not) been crazy busy, and I do not have many stories to share.

Lexie did not scream all through her doctor's visit on Tuesday. That was some other child. The pediatrician did not refer to her as being a "spirited" child.

I did not nearly lose my lunch while attempting to collect a stool sample for Lexie's tests, and then start crying hysterically when I was told by the lab, that they could not use the sample and that I would have to get individual prescriptions written out and try again.

I was not nearly snowed in at my parent's house on Wednesday. Lexie did not give a perfect stool sample in the middle of the treacherous snow storm. That would be ironic!

I did not nearly lose my lunch again, while collecting the samples, and I was not so excited that I rushed the kids out of the house and to the lab, eager to make it in the hour time frame. I DEFINITELY wanted to repeat that process again.

I am not counting down the hours until we get the results.

I was not so excited about my cousin-in-law's baby news that I began crying while trying to tell my husband on the phone. I did not get choked up when my best friend texted me the sex of her soon-to-be baby.

Dylan did not convince my parents, my mom, and I to buy him toys on Friday. No way would that ever work, and no way is he that sneaky to manage to get 3 toys on 3 separate occasions.

Lexie did not take 2 pairs of shoes to nap with her today. She is not shoe obsessed.

I am not thrilled that I got bags of hand-me-down's from my great niece...simply because Lexie was growing out of all of her clothes, and I was not going out to buy her more winter clothes.

I am not dressing Lexie in the dress-over-pants look, because I can't give up her dresses. Tutu over jeans? Brilliant!

I do not have to shoo my Great Dane away from the heating vent 20 times a day. She does not drag her bed over to block the vent, and it does not absolutely infuriate me!

Lexie is not turning 2 in 3 short weeks. I am not in denial.

I did not have a blast having a sleepover with my mom. We did not play cards until 2 in the morning.

I did not sob at the end of Marley and Me. I do not get that drawn into books.

I did not fall completely head over heels in love with my husband again when he asked when we are having our third baby. Or when he mentioned that he may someday want a fourth.

My nerves are not completely shot because of the Superbowl tonight. I am not completely thrilled that our team won! GO PITTSBURGH!


  1. This was an awesome NOT ME list, so much to discuss.....or disgust as the case may be. Collecting Stool samples.....yup, I'm losing my lunch too! YIKES!

    Love love love the nap with shoes, too cute!

    And 3 sets of toys, boy that Dylan is resourceful isn't he?!

    Thanks for the laughs!


  2. Happy Not Me! Monday! My daughter will be turning 2 at the end of February, and I can hardly believe it either!! Time flies by way too fast. The picture of her sleeping with her shoes cracked me up too. I think our daughters would either be fast friends, or "bicker" because they both want all the attention!

  3. I LOVE the dress over pants look! I LOVE my daughter in dresses, but SHE, however, wants PANTS. So it's a compromise. LOL

    LOVE the shoes! HAAAAAAAA

  4. The picture is so completely cute!

  5. The shoe pic? Awesome. It is cute when the hubby is ready for another! I am hoping that never happens again in my house though. Spirited child? I've heard that TOO MANY TIMES TO COUNT!! Now? My doctor just says "You have a lovely family." and lets us mosey out the door. Loudly

  6. Thanks for welcoming me. Loved the shoes with your daughter how cute is that. Good luck trying for the new baby, I have 4 and love having all of them.

  7. Very good not me Monday, hope your daughter starts feeling well. I love your family and your horse, I love my horses also. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  8. The stool sample was hilarious...although bad for you.

    Great game wasn't it?!? My oldest will be 2 in March & I am completely in denial about it.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!


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