The weather here in Wisconsin DID NOT dip down to the 30’s and it DID NOT actually snow this past weekend. I DID NOT take a picture of myself in the snow to email to my parents that are on vacation in Las Vegas. I DID NOT actually think about posting the ridiculous picture that you could’t even see the snow flakes.

While changing my youngest son’s diaper, I DID NOT notice an ant parade across the living room baseboard. I DID NOT follow that parade to the entertainment center where there was some spilled juice trapping 20 ants in front of the TV. I DID NOT proceed to make a trip to WAL-MART and purchase every RAID ANT product know to man. I also DID NOT start feeling like I had ants crawling in various areas of my body. My husband DID NOT start his nightly Ant Patrol where he inspected the Living Room to see if there were any more ants. This DID NOT remind me of Earwig Patrol that he did when we first moved into the duplex we lived in shortly after getting married.

I AM NOT taking a cake decorating class at our local Hobby Lobby. I DID NOT once again try to convince myself that I actually think cake decorating was fun. While I was completing my homework I DID NOT get frustrated because it wasn’t going the way I wanted. I DID NOT debate skipping out on the rest of the classes. After I had made a huge PILE of dishes I DID NOT talk my husband into doing the dishes while I got the kids dressed for the day. He fell for my trick and I WAS NOT very happy since I DO NOT hate doing dishes.

This weekend our grocery store had a Pumpkin Festival. Festival Foods IS NOT the greatest grocery store. It WAS NOT only 30 degrees when we went to the festival and I DID NOT pressure my husband to hurry up and find our pumpkins. They DID NOT have a bounce house and petting zoo there. Being the mean mom I am, I DID NOT deny my children from going in the bounce house and discourage them from entering the petting zoo. I also DID NOT take a picture there and wonder why the two boys can’t coordinate a smile.

My husband DID NOT question my lack of blog posts last week. (I LOVE You hunny!) He DID NOT suggest that I may lose my readers and pretend that he WAS a blog expert. I DID NOT need a break last week from blogging due to the craziness of school and regular life. His little lecture DID NOT make me feel a little bit guilty. I DID NOT proceed to start the posts for the next week at that time

Halloween is only a couple of weeks away so I knew I DID NOT have to get the costumes figured out for the boys this year. I DID NOT purchase my youngest sons in August. He IS NOT going to be the cutest dragon you ever did see. As I tried to figure out what the oldest was going to be He DID NOT suggest a kninght so he could kill the dragon. Ok, he may have actually called it a soldier. I DID NOT think this was the best idea and I absolutely DID NOT discourage him from any other costume he suggested. I also DID NOT hide the costume catalog so he WOULD NOT stay a knight. I AM NOT absolutely thrilled for Halloween so I can see my knight and his dragon! I also AM NOT debating dressing the youngest son up when I take the oldest to his Halloween party.

I can not even believe that I you would think that my family and I  might DO any of this things; I DID NOT so you better wipe any thoughts that I would from your mind.

I DID NOT trip on my sons train set on the floor, go flying across the Living Room and fall on my side. I DID NOT skid across the carpet and get a nasty rug burn on my elbow. Even though no-one saw, I WAS NOT embarrassed.

Every Thursday after my sons Soccer game we go to Culvers for supper. Last time we went we ordered and then while my husband filled drinks I set the youngest son in the high chair.  Right after I set him in the chair I gave him his drink in one of the disposable sippy cups. He DID NOT take the full cup of soda and squeeze it so hard that the top flew off he spilled soda all over himself. I DID NOT have to take him to the bathroom and wipe him down as best as I could. We managed to eat supper and I took the youngest with me while the oldest went with my husband.

I DEFINITELY DID NOT give my son the sippy cup (which was about a quarter full) in his car seat. As we rounded the building he DID NOT proceed to do the same thing as before and dump more soda on himself. I DID NOT pull into a parking spot, grab the cup out of his hand and chuck it across the parking lot. I then DID NOT remove him from the car and strip him down to his diaper in the middle of the parking lot. I WAS NOT extremely frustrated at that point.

I DID NOT post my weight last week on this post. After I published it I DID NOT immediately eat a sandwich after it. I also DID NOT wonder why my weight was 20 lbs less on the WII FIt than it ever was at the doctor office. I DID NOT feel upset that my number wasn’t more.

I WAS NOT excited when I saw a field trip permission slip in my sons backpack. I DID NOT immediately call my mom to arrange babysitting for my youngest son so I could chaperone.

My youngest son DID NOT fill his diaper while in the grocery store babysitting area. I DID NOT take him to the park without changing his diaper. My diaper wipes container WAS NOT empty. I DID NOT end up changing his diaper on the van floor in the preschool parking lot. I also DID NOT leave him only partially clean because of missing wipes,

I can not even believe that I you would think that I might DO any of this things; I DID NOT so you better wipe any thoughts that I would from your mind.

I DID NOT sign my 4 year old up for  a weather class through the local rec department and he DID NOT spend the first half hour outside the door to the class crying so hard. As we left I DID NOT tell him that we would not be returning to any more classes this summer. The next morning he DID NOT beg me to go back. I DID NOT ignore him because I was still in my pajamas.

My husband DOES NOT go to the chiropractor to fix his back which he hurt when filling in our lawn for the pool we removed. At his last appointment this week I DID NOT decide to meet him for dinner and since I was a little early wait in the car with both the kids. He DID NOT tell me that the appointment would be 10 minutes and end up being nearly 45. My kids WERE NOT bad and I DID NOT text my husband rude comments from the parking lot.

On Saturday we had to make a trip to the bank to sign some papers. We were in an office up by the teller area and my oldest was noticing the cameras on the ceiling. He asked me why there were cameras and I said to see if people are doing anything naughty. He proceeded to say,” Like if they come and take stuff.” and I said yes. Then he DID NOT say” Like when they say ‘ Give me all your lollipops!.” I DID NOT agree and say “Yes, that is why they have the cameras.”

I can not even believe that I you would think that I might DO any of this things; I DID NOT so you better wipe any thoughts that I would from your mind.

This weekend WAS NOT jam packed- we DID NOT go to an airshow, cookie festival, and spend time with family. As we were finding parking at the Airshow I DID NOT spend the whole time yelling at my husband. Since we had a special pass for parking I DID NOT think we could find some better spots.

At the cookie Festival my youngest son DID NOT fall absolutely in love with Cookie Monster.

One of the highlights of the festival is the cookie hunt or cookie drop for the older kids. Both of my sons were in the category for the cookie hunt which pretty much meant the ground was covered in packages of cookies. When the 1 & 2 year olds were taking their turn my son WAS NOT the only child to leave his or her parent. He DID NOT run directly to Cookie Monster in the middle and proceed to hand him cookies. Cookie Monster DID NOT proceed to tell him that he should put the cookies in his bag.

My oldest son DID NOT cry every time it was time to complete an activity. We would stand in line and every time it was his turn to go he DID NOT start crying and say “I just can’t do this.” We also DID NOT wait in line 1/2 hour to go in a small circle in the park on a wagon ride. Even though it was a cookie festival, we DID NOT eat massive amount of cookies.

We DID NOT attend a pool party at my sister in laws house where we have started a “Sunday Dinner ” tradition. While several people, including my oldest son, were in the pool it DID NOT thunder and lightening. One of my friends DID NOT push her daughter (who happened to be holding my son) and yell at her to MOVE IT. She DID NOT give any thought to a child trying to get out of the pool. The wind DID NOT blow so hard that it made several people run into the house screaming.

My nephew DID NOT give my son dolphin rides. My son DID Not proceed to choke my nephew as they went around the pool.

My oldest son DID NOT push my 2 year old son into the pool at one point during the party. He DID NOT sink like a rock and my heart DID NOT sink. I DID NOT proceed to scream at my oldest child and make him sit up on the deck. I DID NOT ignore his chattering teeth and shattering body until the time-out was over.

I can not even believe that I you would think that I might DO any of this things; I DID NOT so you better wipe any thoughts that I would from your mind.

The creator of Not Me Monday – needs your prayers……desperately.

Prayers for Stellan

So, in respect for Stellan, their son who is in grave condition, MckMama herself and the whole Mckfamily, as bloggers we have decided to give you a moment of silence.

In the past I wrote about Stellan here and here. I really feel for this mother and thank god that I have healthy children. You can read Stellan’s story here and get hourly twitter updates here.

I have SO many great ones this week, and will be sure to save them for next weeks installment, but have a hard time with humor right now.

So, I am asking a favor for all of you that come to my blog to laugh at the terrible things I let my children do and the funny things that happen to me. Take a moment to pray for this family.

Thanks! and be sure to check back next monday for two weeks of NOT ME’s!

Update: I want to link to Lisa’s post – it absolutely brought tears to my eyes. All too often we take for granted our children and how healthy they are. We complain about their sassiness, crabbiness, ability to not listen….and the list goes on. (I am so bad at this) After reading her post it made me go hug my kids – things can change in the blink of an eye. Go Hug your kids and tell them you love them!
