not me monday

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

i DID NOT spill an entire sweet tea on the floor inside the house as i was bringing it in to drink after just one very tasty sip.

b DID not have blue chalk all over her lips and tongue. when i asked if she'd put chalk on her face, she DID NOT say "jada held my tongue out of my mouth, held me down and put chalk all over my tongue." i DID NOT put her in time out for liying, although the story was pretty good.
b DID NOT get time out for throwing a flip flop at p when she was told it was time to come in for the night. after time out, i DID NOT ask b to apologize to paige:
b: "sorry paige that i hit you in face with my shoe."
p: "that's ok but it really hurt."
b:"it was only a flip flop. it could've been worse."
me:"tell paige why you decided to throw a shoe at her."
b:" it was a flip flop." then silence.
me:"do you need to go back to time out to remember, brooke?"
b:"no, i just can't think of a good reason right now."
{{paige and i DID NOT start laughing...and almost ruin the punishment...}}
me: "brooke, now hug and kiss paige."
b:"i will hug her but i really, really don't want to kiss her. do i have to kiss her?"
me:"no, you don't have to kiss her, but please hug her and mean it."
b:"ok, i will try. sorry paige. it was only a flip flop."

i DID NOT succumb to the screaming sofie on monday night...i DID NOT put her in the car and drive her around to calm her down...something i have never done with any other child before. she DID NOT calm down less than 2 miles from home and sleep for about 6 hours.

when i asked b where the kool aid stain on her shirt came from she DID NOT say, "its stinking head exploded."

paige DID NOT graduate from 8th grade...and she is NOT a real freshman now! {are you stinking serious?}
me and the girlies DID NOT eat fast food every day this last week that hubs was gone. sad.

we DID NOT take the kids to the town "festival" on sunday after church where i DID NOT hear the big sucking sound of the money leaving my wallet. rides for toddlers were NOT $3 each and we DID NOT only ride 2 rides and leave.

head on over to mckmama's for some fab not me's...she's awesome!

I love the story about B - they are so funny at that age-so honest. I'm happy you had a nice weekend!!

I DID NOT hang out by the little pool snapping pictures and then play in the sprinkeler with Sophie...I had to teach her how to enjoy it right?? :)

Have a great Monday!!

Haha, great post! My hubs and kids have been out of town all week and I totally DID NOT just watch Judge Judy and eat Panera everyday instead of painting my house like I should have.

I was only a flip flop. Geez. You blew that WAY out of proportion.


I love kids. And I'm glad that I didn't have to deal with that one.

I like to think that your kids are just plain brilliant. The flip flop AND the chalk stories both had me laughing out loud.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall in your house... :)

I love the flip flop story. My sister threw a rock at my head once that went through the drywall. If only she had been as creative.

I enjoyed the "flip-flop" story too. Kids can be pretty funny sometimes. Have a wonderful day!

I am so sorry about the sweet tea. My husband would have ran back out to get another one. The Brooke story about the flip flop was too much. How ever did you not just fall out laughing. OMGosh it was only a flip flop for goodness sake it wasn't a steal toed that would have hurt. LOL
Cracking me up that girl.
