Not me Monday: Pooping in the Bathtub Edition

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 decided to try something new and do a Not Me Monday. I got the idea from Cammie. Thanks Cammie!

Here are a couple of things I did NOT do:

I did not use the 5 second rule and take my kids out of the bath without rewashing them when Jacob pooped in the bath. I most certainly did not do that because that is gross.

I did not twitter about the above mentioned pooping event and did not gross out all of my followers on twitter.

I did not drink almost a whole bottle of wine by myself on Saturday. That is indulgent and I would not do that.

I did not eat 5 rice krispie treats in one day. I did not almost finish off the batch before Drew and Mr Bee could have any. That would be selfish, so I would not do that.

I did not have one of the rice krispie treats as my breakfast, instead of a real balanced meal.

I did not take my children to Pet Smart to gawk at the animals and buy nothing. I did not do this because I did not run out of ideas on how to entertain my children.

I did not leave my purse at Pet Smart and make my whole family go back to get it, and I did not almost run somebody down in the parking lot to get there quicker. I am never a dangerous driver with my children in the car.

I did not think my son Drew looked dorky when he insisted on tucking his shirt into his pants and his pants into his socks for bed. I did not take a picture of him dressed this way just so I could have blog fodder/future blackmail pictures.

I did not throw an important piece of our Wii Fit balance board away thinking it was part of a Burger King toy, because I never throw away my children's toys without consulting them first.

And last of all, I did not spend a ridiculous amount of time writing this post instead of doing the 30 day shred. I never would miss more quality time with Jillian Michaels. I can not get enough of her!


  1. So funny!

    Great post. I totally think it's a great blackmail photo. Maybe for a graduation party slideshow, first photo to show the "important" girlfriend...:)

    Cause it's what us mom's do best.

  2. Nothing like reading about poop first thing on Monday morning to get the week going BUT I much rather read about it than have to deal with it. I too would NOT be drinking the whole bottle of wine.
    Too funny!

  3. excellent job for your first time!!

  4. Even though you did NOT drink almost the whole bottle of wine... if you had, I'd have joined you :)Nothing is wrong with a good pinot noir.

  5. I would totally join you in a rice krispie treat breakfast.

  6. Is it bad to drink a whole bottle of wine?! LOL! It's not as good once it's been opened for several days. :)

    Great blackmail pic!

  7. Thanks for the laughs, and the pooping NOTs. LOL

  8. Hey, I'd have used the 5 second rule, too! No biggy! Or...at least I hope it wasn't a biggy.
    =0) {{giggle}}

  9. Love the new blog design, although I miss the little tykes in the header. Make sure you continue to post lots of pictures.

    Especially like the categorized blogroll. I wish I could figure out how to do that in WordPress.

  10. I found you on MckMama. I did not have a similar incident happen yesterday in the tub. I did not pull my daughter out of the tub and dry her off, without rewashing her. ;)

  11. Oh my word. I think I have done every one of those things. Nothing wrong with any of them.

  12. This was great! Totally had me laughing. And I have so taken my son to PetSmart to look at the animals when I ran out of ideas. We actually bumped into a neighbor who was having her dog groomed (we were standing there watching her actual dog getting washed without realizing it) and she said "I didn't know you had a pet." and I said "I don't. We're just here for entertainment." I always wondered if anyone else did that.

    And I think I know the exact part of the Wii Fit you are talking about...are they little gray circle things? I almost threw them out the other day but asked my husband first (as I have a tendency to toss anything I don't recognize and this always ends up badly).

    And I so steal the good stuff from my family. And a Rice Krispy treat for breakfast sounds like you're eating at my house.

    Actually, the more I read your blog, the more I'm beginning to think we may have been separated at birth! Hence our "twin" Paradise Beach photos!
