I did not break down sobbing in front of my 2 oldest children while reading "Love You Forever" as a bedtime story. I did not sob uncontrollably as Josh laughed at me. I did NOT look at my 2 kids and lose my breath at how fast time has gone since they were sweet little babies. My heart did not break a little as I remembered that I will never again cuddle my very own newborn baby.....nope. I am NOT a baby addict! NOT ME!!!!!!
My husband DID NOT make fun of this, one of my favorite stories, because the mommy in the story is a bit of a stalker. I mean she does drive from her house, across town, and breaks into her grown sons house to have some cuddle time. It's a little creepy, even for me....who is addicted to cuddling with her kids. THIS IS STILL one of the most endearing stories, and Josh TOTALLY DID NOT make fun of this book!!!! Not He!!! (cute twist?)
Finally, I did NOT break 2 of my resolutions (AT THE SAME TIME!!!) that I swore not to even make this year. I did NOT watch Grey's Anatomy while eating a (small? smallish???) bag of generic, old Christmas candy bought 75% off from WalMart. I did not yell in horror that Dead Denny is STILL on MY TELEVISION!!! I did NOT cry that I did not have a new episode of The Office to distract me from the horror of what Grey's Anatomy has become. I also did NOT realize that I am too addicted to television....NOT ME!!!!!! NO WAY!!!!! :::grin!:::
“Not Me! Monday was born out of a desire to admit some of our imperfections and reveal a few moments we'd rather forget. Why? Well, for one, because it's just plain fun to pretend that we really did not do the things that we actually so did do. And, two, because reading through great tales of other people's Not Me! Mondays each week is a great way to level the playing field. We're all human, we all take embarrassing shortcuts, and so we may as well show each other that we're all in good company!”
