Not Me Monday.....

Welcome to Not Me Monday! A time to cut yourself a little slack for doing things a little bit off beat...because hey, you know you're not the only one! If you would like to join in just head on over to Mckmama's and join in the fun!

It is {not} my child, my sweet little boy, who has decided he needs "chechup" and "mimurd" (aka ketchup and mustard) at every meal. EVERY  MEAL!! And I am {not} the one who gives into this 21 month old's obsession. Especially, because I think it's so hilarious when he says, "I got my poon, I need chechup and mimurd!" It also was{not} the same child who decided to cover his entire head in ketchup today at lunch, causing his mommy to interrupt valuable nap time to give the messy boy a bath! Nope, {not} my child! It is also {not} me who has bribed the middle child with a new baby doll if she would only start pooping in the big girl potty. It is still sometimes{unbelievable} that I get excited when a very small person in this household uses the potty. I would{never} get excited over certain bodily functions. HA! It is {not} me who gets a little teary-eyed when I think about my oldest baby starting school next year! It's {not} me who is so surprised by how fast time flies! Nope, I would {never} do something like that.....Oh, no....{not}me...sniff sniff! Ok, I'm better...good thing we have decided to home school! ;) But it {is} me who is so incredibly blessed to be a SAHM(stay at home mom!)and to have such wonderful children!

Five Question Friday!!!

Five Question Friday is a fun little way for you to get to know others better. I came across it on It's a really fun blog about mommies and babies and all the fun and eventful things that go along with life as a mom! I thought I'm a mom, I have at least one "disaster" a day and I like to hear about the lives of others who may or may not have a daily disaster to take care of, so why not participate?! Here are the Five Questions and Answers....Enjoy!:)

1. Have you ever visited another country? If you consider all the countries at Epcot in Disney World another country then yes! If not, then no! I would love to go Europe one day. The places in particular I would LOVE to go are: Ireland, Scotland, Greece, and most of all, my #1 on the list...Italy!

2. Where is the strangest place you have ever been? I don't think I've really been anywhere that was just creepy. Although, there was one time when my friend, Meredith, and I walked into The Purple Haze in Panama City and decided rather quickly that it was a bad idea and turned around and a hurry! So I guess that would be the strangest place I've ever been!

3. What is your favorite season? My favorite season would have to be fall. I love the cooler weather. I love the color of the changing trees. There is just something about making apple pies and celebrating Thanksgiving in the cool of fall! I love it!

4. What one song will always cheer you up? I would say any song from Grease! It's just a fun soundtrack. It reminds me of an opening number I did when I was in the Queen of Hearts pageant wwwwaaaayyyy back in the day!

5. What Disney character do you resemble most? I don't know. My girls usually tell me I'm the queen. So I hope that doesn't mean that I am the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland or the scary queen from Snow White! ;)

Tonight...I am sleeping on the couch!

You know how in movies, and probably in real life, when couples get in a fight and angry with one another they end up saying something like..." You are sleeping on the couch tonight...buh-bye!" Well I was thinking last night how when you're a parent of small children, especially more than one, who think that because you have a king size bed it's meant for the whole family so why should they sleep in their own bed , you would gladly spend the night on the couch. In fact, I even had the idea that you could almost go as far as start a fight over something so silly, and then say fine...I'll just sleep on the couch tonight! This would be a HUGE victory! Like, Alabama winning the National Championship last year big! This plan just might work but probably not for long. Eventually, the husband is going to catch on, he's a pretty smart man. When he sees that your getting a full 7 hours of sleep and looking so happy and rested in the morning, he'll put 2 and 2 together. And when he figure's out your evil but oh so wonderful plan then he would turn the tables on you and he would have the couch. The wonderful couch that is elbow, knee, head, hiney, and multiple child free! And you have a good 2 1/2 to 3 feet of wonderful comfy-ness(I don't think that's a word I'm around a 4yr old, almost 3yr old, and a almost 2yr old all day...just go with it!)compared to the 2 inches of bed you normally have because your daughter's head and your son's feet are pushing you closer and closer to the edge. I think this is a good bad the husband reads this it just might have worked!
Tonight I am sleeping on the couch...especially if any of these 3 are in it!
