Not Me Monday

I did not use my toothbrush one morning this week even though I knew the girls had been playing with way....that would be gross...who knows where that thing had been. 

I did not use the fact that my girls had a Birthday Party on Monday afternoon as leverage all day for them to behave. Come on, I'm a better parent than that!

I am not jumping for joy to finally have the huge fallen tree in my backyard removed because I think maybe my problem will go away....that would be ludicrous. 

I did not procrastinate making dinner for so long Friday night that I threw the girls in the car to go pick up a pizza for dinner at way man. I only feed my kids organic and my kids go to bed before then!

I did not have a complete panic attack crying, hyperventilating and all at MacKenzie's school in front of a bunch of people I didn't know because MacKenzie was missing for 15 minutes after school let out and the Principal herself couldn't find her anywhere. That's not possible. I don't cry, remember?

I definitely did not have a moment of sadness when MckMama said she was taking a break from blogging and didn't know when she would be back. You don't actually think I'm that lame, do you?

And I did not let my children feed themselves Breakfast Sunday morning, because I'm not feeling well and didn't get out of bed til after they had already fed themselves. Wanna know what they had?? 
  • Nutri Grain cereal bars Not too bad, right? Well I don't know I think the second ingredient on the list is high fructose corn syrup...ok so it's pure sugar...whatever.
  • Capri Sun Roaring Waters Well at least it's "flavored water" and not a juice box. I know, I know...just a pathetic attempt at justifying here, people. 
  • Cheetos Before you freak out, they WERE the "Natural" Cheetos, so no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Comparatively speaking, not too bad.
  • String Cheese Hey, at least they got their calcium in somehow.
Check out MckMama's Not Me Monday. Yes, she's back and I am not totally thrilled! It's titled "Nothing" just so not to confuse you.

Oh, how scary. Why was she missing?

Lindsay said...

Yes it was VERY scary. She had gone out the wrong door and was on the other side of the school. She's only 5, so you can imagine the thoughts running through my head. I have a new sympathy for parents that truly do go through a child being missing.

I so did not have a panic attack before having to do a speech during school my last semester! That would be way embarassing! A lot more embarassing than having a panic attack for a good reason like a missing child

I look forward to your post every Monday. These crack me up! Well, at least all of them except Mackenzie missing. I love the ones about being all "organic" and stuff. Makes me laugh. I read it to Conn. :) Sounds like what my girls eat for breakfast everyday. No way did my girls eat leftover cupcakes this morning from Conn's b-day. :)

Hope your week is good and you are feeling better!

Lindsay said...

Yeah. I only say all that "organic" stuff because I truly envy the people who can do that and stick to it. I just can't.

Okay, I thought your post was GREAT! I wonder if anyone else had commented about your fear of birds (I checked your linked post), and the irony of your (beautiful and fabulous) background for your blog! Maybe that is the inspiration?? Whatever it is, I absolutely LOVE it!
I don't waste any time reading these posts either...obviously. And I certainly wouldn't comment on a perfect stranger's blog mostly because of the beauty of the background she has chosen for said blog!
