Not Me Monday....

These "Not Me's" are just for me, since MckMama is taking a day off for Memorial Day from her "Not Me" blog carnival.  

I would never leave my child in his pajamas all day long because he was getting over a cold, and myself and the husband were in the thick of it.  I definitely would not leave him in those p.j.s all day when I myself got dressed and went to the store to buy oranges, OJ, and soup!  Surely since Josiah was sick, I had those things already!  

I definitely called my friend Susi who was visiting with us last week to tell her that Joey got sick the day after she left and he probably got it from some germ infested place that we took the kids to and to watch out!!  (And also to very courteously check to make sure they were all still healthy).  

I have not let this weensy cold get the best of me and completely given up on my cooking and cleaning causing me to witness an actual fur tumbleweed blow across my kitchen floor.  

Out of sheer exhaustion from not being able to use my nasal passages for more than 24 hours I have not repeatedly told my toddler to "play with your toys" instead of hang all over me, because I just want to sit and relax.  I also have not checked my watch and wondered what in the WORLD I am going to do with him for the next 2 hours until bedtime and considered a bath just to take up time, even though he had one last night.   

I have not considered counting how many times my "child of few words" says "Momeee" in a given day and then blogging about it.  I would never even think about telling him to call me something else, so I don't even need to mention that!

And lastly I am DEFINITELY not going to do absolutely NOTHING after Joey goes to bed, except possibly going to bed at some unmentionable hour like 8:30.  Because of course there are fur tumbleweeds to be swept and laundry to be put away and various other things to do.....

Wow, this could have been written by me about our week last week. Even today, Kathryn was definitely in her pjs ALL day, that is, until bathtime. And there have been several times in the last few weeks where I have bathed the children just to take up time. Oh, and taken them on drives. Even with the price of gas. Because, as we all know, sanity is worth more than $2.31 a gallon. :)
