Six inch, Ramen, Cheesy “Not Me” Monday!

It is time for another “Not me” Monday. Time where I make it clear the things that did Not happen to me in the last week.  Feel free to click on the link above to read other “Not Me” Confessionals… errr… Not really.  🙂

It was not me who took my kid out first thing in the morning to get a pick me up Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte.   It was then totally not me who stopped to chat with the neighbor and then lied to the neighbor when he asked “are those your sleep clothes?” by saying “no, ahem, they are just our lounge clothes” ignoring the fact that be surely noticed the sheep on my pajama pants and the footie pajamas on Monkey.  That is something I would NEVER do!

It was not me who let Monkey eat Cup-o-Noodles and Cheese Balls* exclusively because I didn’t want to listen to him scream and pitch a fit.  But it was not Monkey who was trying to mimic me after watching me blow on his noodles to cool them off.

*Yes, Carma, we are still eating the same batch of Cheese Balls that I bought how long ago?? HaHa

It was not me that tried for 20 minutes, through screams, kicking and crying to try and put a monkey costume on my Monkey perhaps just for the photo op.

IMG_6028-8 copyIn my defense, this pic was actually taken when we got the costume a month or so ago.  He obviously loved it just as much then as he did on Halloween.  Yay for Monkey Costume! 😦

So I guess it was not me who finally gave up and just went to Johnny Carino’s instead.  And it was not me who let Monkey have spaghetti at Johnny Carino’s even though I knew it would end up all over everything and the busboy would be cursing me when we left.

It was not me who was giggling while Hubby was getting a 6 inch Q-tip shoved up his nose to test him for the flu.  And it was not me who decided to document this moment for him forever and ever.

clbedit110209-6134 copySo cute, isn’t he?  He always sticks his tongue out at cameras.  Paparazzi and all.

Oh and it is sooooo not me who is PRAYING so hard that I don’t have to get the same Q-Tip treatment if this cold doesn’t go away. *gulp*

It was not me who stayed in bed this morning for an extra 30 minutes even though I could see Monkey on the monitor pulling EVERYTHING out of the dresser drawers.  But hey, 30 minutes is 30 minutes y’all.  Don’t judge. 🙂

What things were not you this week?

    I so wanted to get my Monkey into a monkey suit this year but never got to it…I will for sure have to do it next year! We too had dinner at Carino’s on Halloween and my little Monkey has just hit the phase where everything that doesn’t end up shoved in her mouth is thrown on the floor so I am now tipping a little more because I feel so awful about the mess we inevitably leave behind. I hope you feel better soon!

    I thought “lounge clothes” were only for the ‘over 50 set’ 😉

    oh my, I love the monkey costume! And I am so impressed that your monkey will keep his bib on! I gave up on those puppies a long time ago, which has resulted in a lot of stains, but a lot less picking up of bibs from the floor for me. Now they just throw their food on the floor:) haha.

      Really? Oh goodness, I really hope Monkey never goes through the “bib throwing phase” that would be terrible!

    it was not me laughing at this post…and I certainly am NOT a day late commenting on it. NOPE

    Oh my gosh – that monkey costume picture is just so sad and hilarious at the same time!

    My kid was NOT amused to be a pea pod his first year either. And this year he dearly loved the fishing pole aspect of his costume (note to self: do NOT give a 3-year old a weapon and then go to church… you’ll just end up with VICTIMS).

    Loved this post!

    And congrats on your Monkey – I know how tough they are to come by with PCOS!
