"Not Me!" Monday!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did not have a dream about my 12 year old daughter being pregnant. OH NO, that would be a nightmare! When she got home from school, I did not use my dream as a springboard to talk to her about sex and teenage pregnancy, and what she could expect from her parents in either case. I did not also talk to her best friend about it, since she was not in the dream telling my daughter to hide the truth from me! My daughter SOOO did not ask me if her father and I would, in that situation, adopt her baby and raise it as our own! I did not refuse based on the fact that her father and I want to eventualy be done raising children so we can have fun. Nope, that was not me!

After spending the night in the ER with my daughter this week, and finding that not only did she have pneumonia, but she also has enlarged pulmonary arteries, indicating a heart defect, I did NOT choose to let my husband and best friend sleep unaware of the news, calling only after they would normally be up for the day. In not doing that, I did not go to bed before my best friend woke but after posting on both facebook and my blog. My very best friend did not later that morning receive a phone call from a mutual friend about my daughter's situation, of which she was totally unaware, because I was not blissfully enjoying the 3 hours of sleep I got that day. And, in fact, I did NOT get a phone call from my best friend just minutes before I had planned on calling her. Wouldn't that make me the most insensitive best friend, ever? I'm so glad that was not me!

Speaking of my best friend, we had planned for her to spend the next day at my house scrapbooking the day away, and she did not end up babysitting my boys for the entire day while we accomplished zero scrapbooking until the kids all went to bed that night. I did not give my diabetic friend SUGAR COOKIE DOUGH as a snack during the few late hours that we did get to scrap together. Heavens, I care more about her health than that. What kind of friend would I be? Nope, that was definitely not me!

I did NOT have a farting contest with my 10 year old son while cutting his hair to see who could make the loudest and longest. I did not lose in the loudest and longest categories only to win in the stinkiest! I did not give my son another mohawk, for the umpteenth time. I'm much more responsible, conservative and couth than that. And I surely didn't post about farting and sex on my blog, not ME!

I thouroughly enjoyed that confession of the things I didn't do this week. Feel free to leave a comment before you head on over to Mck Mama's blog to see what other ordinary folks haven't done this week!

  1. I saw you commented on a different blog that you wanted a header with pictures of your kids?! Would you like me to make one for you? I would love to and I love playing around with them. Just let me know.
