Not Me! Monday

"Not Me! Monday" is back! Well, it's really been going on all along without me, but I'm back! So I had a total "Not Me Monday" moment yesterday in Wal Mart where LOTS of things that can make the Not Me Monday list happen and it inspired me to get back into it. It was always therapeutic. So here goes:

I most certainly did not pick up my baby boy's pacifier off the floor of Wal Mart and put it back in his mouth, WITHOUT washing it off. Go ahead, GASP...I know you want to.

I did not just eat a bowl of Special K cereal at 10:30 at night even though I've already eaten dinner, and I am definitely not so addicted to said cereal that I sometimes have it 3 times a day and have to buy a new box of it once a week.

Since I am such a firm believer in portraits capturing the "true essence" of who you are at that time in life, I did not practice smiling with my 6 year old before our family portrait so that I could ensure she would have a sweet smile that doesn't show her crazy teeth situation going on right now. No way would I do a thing like that. That would be like completely against all that I stand for as a photographer.

I did not let my sister feed my 5 month old a dinner roll at the Thanksgiving table just so I could get funny pictures of him devouring it. I mean, really...what kind of mother would do that?

Alrighty, since my brain wasn't in "Not Me Monday" mode all week, that's all I've got this time. Wanna check out more things people aren't doing? For some reason, MckMama's site is not available, so I'll post a link to more Not Me Mondays if it comes back.

That is hilarious, that you had your six year old practice smiling... I might have to try that when my daughter gets older!
