Not Me Monday - Out of the Mouths of Moms



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 haven't done Not Me! Monday for awhile but I really want a chance to win the quilt. I do NOT want a quilt made out of Seth's baby clothes...

We spent yesterday at the lake. I did NOT walk down to the little resort store with my husband leaving my kids alone with our hosts. While we were gone, Kayleigh did NOT get stung by a bee on her left foot. She also did NOT get a HUGE splinter in the big toe of her right foot.

I am not the type of mom to just leave a splinter in my daughter's toe because I don't want to pin her down and dig it out with tweezers and a needle. I did not recently leave a splinter in her hand for that very reason (If I had, I should let you know that said hand looks perfect with no splinters! And no infection, yay!)

And because I think it's almost as much fun as "Out of the Mouths of Babes" stories, I would like to leave you with a short list of things I have NOT said to my children so far this summer:

No, you can not have a pop before 7am.

No, you can not have candy before 7am.

Please don't lick your lifejacket.

Honey, your stomach makes a great canvas but if you can't use the markers on PAPER only, you won't be allowed to have markers.. or a pen.. or crayons.


And having NOT said all the above things this summer, I have most definitely NOT said:

"Please do not chew on the car." And the neighbor did NOT overhear me.

I saw on Mckmama about your post-- Congrats on winning! I would love to hear how the blanket turns out. I've thought of doing something like this (either a bear or a blanket or both) from things from our kids who are in Paradise with your little Seth. I always back out because I'm a little too attached to their things and worry something would happen in transit, or how I would feel in the end about the whole process. So please let us know how your experience goes!

Do not chew on the car! LOL! That's a new one!

I find myself saying things like "please do not throw your clothing on the ceiling fan" all day long.

I found you from McMama's blog...a quick tip for splinters...If part of the splinter is still sticking out of the skin, put a thin layer of elmers glue on top and let it try. Then peel if off, and the splinter comes right off with it! Quick and painless :)
