not me monday

a few things me and the fam def DID NOT do this last week...

my mother DID NOT say that this kid at p's ball game looked like the statue of liberty.
jada DID NOT do the "i got money, money" dance when she opened up her valentine card from grandma and grandpa on saturday morning...and give me the "for rizzle shizzle" look on her own, unprovoked.

hubs DID NOT run around frantically looking for the remote yelling, "i need to know if lincoln's body was stolen from his tomb....someone find the remote!". dang history channel. dang dork hubs.

i DID NOT take b, jk and sofie to starbucks for a little morning coffee date before preschool. we DID NT polish 3 donuts in 3 minutes...and sofie was NOT eating the crumbs off the floor with great delight.
paige's bball team DID NOT win the tourney they were in this weekend.

brooke DID NOT say "seriously, dad. you know what i'm talking about and that a kids meal from burger king is JUST the same as mc donald's. dad. what ARE you thinking? gee whiz". she DID NOT sound like her teenage big sister and ryan and i DID NOT laugh thinking that her teen years would NOT be a load of non-stop adventures.

hubs DID NOT travel to france on monday and leave me and the girlie pies all alone {again} for the week...only to return with real french chocolate for me. he def is NOT after my heart.

when i asked b to settle down and stop moving she DID NOT say, "i got the wiggles, mom, and i gotta get 'em out!"
my 'rents DID NOT come and rescue me this week for some time alone. i DID NOT drive to dinner in utter silence. i DID NOT read the newspaper and write my sermon during dinner on my laptop. i DID NOT head off to tj maxx and i DID NOT have a blast just walking around and looking at fun stuff and find a $5 party dress for b. then, i DID NOT go to the starbucks drive thru to finish off the time out alone night...and feel two things: utterly thankful for great parents and relief!

paige and her "boyfriend" DID NOT go ice skating and take along hubs and b for fun.
{for the record...hubs took the picture}

i DID NOT just overhear this:
paige: "that is really disturbing. gross."
hubs: "sorry, my butt itched."
paige: "ok, next time, don't make it grosser by talking."

i DID NOT let the kids talk me into mcd's burgers two nights this week because of ball games and me being tired...and i am totally NOT sick of eating there right now.

jada and brooke are NOT dancing around singing, "i'm is somebody. i'm is deeper and wider"...which is NOT a reasonable fascimile of the real sunday school song.

head on over ot mckmama's place and see all kinds of peeps that are NOT doing this NOT ME MONDAY.

Oh if only I had a teenager around our house would sound so much alike. That was too funny about the butt itch and lucky you for great parents and free time. I have great parents, but rarely get that much needed free time.

Jada and that look are PRICELESS!
I so am a history fanatic and understand hubs anxiety. LOL

Kel said...

What is it with the men and their history channel?? And yes, I second your notion that watching the kids at a young age can only be an indicator of what the teen years will be like...mine, oh I'm so very afraid! ;)

Have a good Monday!!

I love what B said about having the wiggles.

And doesn't everyone stop at Starbucks before preschool? I would if there was one within 30 miles.

Did they steal his body from his tomb? I need to go and google this.

BTW-Tell Jade for rizzle!
