Not Me! Monday

Not Me! Monday sure does put a little of excitement into the day. You know, considering that Mondays are one of the BLAH-ist (so it's not really a word, who cares?) days of the week. With an exception of the week of Christmas! No day this week could possibly be blah!

So, here we go with my list of things that I most certainly did not do.
  • Friday, while trying to finish up some last minute Christmas shopping before picking up the kids, I absolutely did not forget to fasten my 9 month old daughter in her car seat and drive from one store to another. I did not realize this stupid, idiotic, irresponsible thing when hearing my little girl bouncing up and down in her car seat, only to turn around and find her standing in her seat smiling at me. I did not just about have a heart attack, park, grab her in my arms and call my mom crying. Nope, not me! What mother would forget to fasten their baby in the car seat!! Sure as heck wasn't me! (PLEASE tell me that I am not the only mother who has done this! I mean, NOT done this..)
  • I did not go out into the crazy madness of last minute Christmas shoppers today to get my last minute gifts. I wouldn't wait until 3 days before Christmas to finish my shopping! No way, not me!
  • I do not still need just a couple more small gifts for a couple more people. That would really be ridiculous!
  • My house does not look like a tornado hit it and it is not driving me absolutely crazy!!!!
  • I did not buy my husband quite a few gifts regardless of your "agreement" to not buy for each other this year. Why would I do that?? ;)
  • I have not totally and completely ignored the massive piles of laundry that are in need of washing, hoping that eventually they will somehow wash, dry, fold and hang themselves. Nope, not me!

So lets see your Not Me! Monday list! Head on over to MckMamma's blog, My Charming Kids, for more Not Me! Mondays.

Oh wow! I know how scared you must have been to see Ava just standing there! I've never forgotten to buckle the kids, but it is one of my biggest fears that I will! I've had nightmares about it. Dalton, though, has unbuckled both himself AND Ryan, and I thought I was going to lose my mind! I now obsessively check their buckles. lol I'm so glad Ava's ok, and just remember you DON'T have to beat yourself up! It's over, and she's ok. :-)

hey mama!

I have forgotten to buckle the car seat a time or two...I felt just as bad! We are mamas...we have lots of stuff going through our head!

I had the same agreement with my man and he let it slip that he got something so now I am stressing about what to get him!

I have a couple more things to do that will hopefully get done tonight!

I also have ignored about 4 loads of laundry as well as cleaning out the lint filter...Danny asked me last night if I wanted to make a quilt...ewwww!

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

dont feel bad about not buckling the car seat...awhile back me, my sister, her husband, my nephew, and my girls went out to dinner and as we got onto Beltway 8 my nephew stood up and said "whoa look at that big truck!" and all THREE adults were like "omg he's not in his carseat" somehow between the THREE adults in the car we all forgot to buckle him in!! =)
