Our Five Ring Circus: Not Me Monday

Not Me Monday

It's been a few weeks since I last participated in Not Me Monday. I've missed my weekly therapy session, courtesy of MckMama!

I did not inform my daughter that she was miserable, when she refused to try on some clothes that I wanted to buy her. I did not end up just buying the clothes and trying them on at home, only to find out that I need different sizes.

I did not put Lexie in the pack and play for a nap at my parent's house, and fall asleep while sitting on the bed.

I did not have a very red eye, thanks to an infection, and put my contact in anyway, because I couldn't handle not being able to see. Perhaps it's time to buy some glasses?

Last night, I did not sit my cranky child on her bedroom floor, and let her have a tantrum while I picked up her room. Said tantrum was not caused by complete exhaustion, due to skipping a nap. I did not turn around to find this, once I realized how quiet she had become. This did not happen before 7 pm.

We are not the owners of TWO hermit crabs, as of this past weekend. My sister did not give my kids the first one, and my husband did not insist on buying the kids a second one so they can each have one.

My heart did not break when Dylan started sobbing after hearing that Super Snail had passed away. I was not grateful for the hermit crab on my lap, that would help cheer him up.


  1. What a cute picture of Lexie. My kids would never just fall asleep like that. Oh, and I have *never* called my kids miserable because they wouldn't do something I wanted them to do. LOL

  2. Hermit crabs! Awesome! They are so weird, yet fun. Oh, and talk about an adorable pic of Lexie!

  3. Griffin has fallen asleep in time-out before and it cracks me up!

  4. Happy Not Me Monday. Love the mental visual of Lexie's tantrum. :)

    I've been busy working on sewing Graham's xmas stocking, I 'll get back to my blogging eventually...and my award. :)

  5. What I wouldn't give to have my daughter fall asleep before 7pm ha ha!!

  6. Sometimes they are just so tired. It stinks they can't see that for themselves:) She is precious!

  7. I WISH I could sleep like that!!!! :)

  8. What a cute picture of your Lexie!

  9. So precious.

    I would like to invite you to join us for an online Bible study for MOMMAS on the book of Ephesians. We are using my Bible study workbook called “High Stepping in Heavenly Places.” The 10-week study began Sept.24. so it’s not too late to join in. A workbook is available (but not required) with homework. You will also be able to watch a 45-minute weekly video or download a podcast of the message (at no charge), and then share in an online discussion with other moms. Interested. My studies are non-denominational and perfect for all MOMS with toddlers, tweens, teens, or turning 'em loose. I hope you will consider joining in. I would count it a privilege to encourage and inspire you with the Word of God in the fine art of Christian mothering. Check it out at http://highsteppinginheavenlyplaces.wordpress.com. Blessings. jean


  10. Awwwwwwwwwwwww, sorry about Super Snail. Goodness.

    I wonder how long Lily will last. We don't seem to be too great with aquarium pets. Ugggh.

    Happy Hump Day!


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