Not Me Monday!

I haven't been as good at keeping track of my "Not Me Moments" as of late but here are a few that I could remember from the last week or so!

It wasn't ME that accidentally forgot to change my bra after working out in the morning before going to work. While washing my hands in the bathroom at work, I wasn't shocked to see that lovely uni-boob effect that only a sports bra can give you. Lovely.

Sometimes when the refrigerator is open, Emersyn likes to sit on the bottom ledge, sometimes without me noticing. Well, last week, I totally DIDN'T accidentally drop a large container of Feta cheese onto Emersyn's head as she sat below me! I was NOT totally thankful that her head broke the cheese container's fall, which saved most of the cheese except for the many pieces that happened to fall into her hair. And when she started hysterically crying, I did NOT run and grab my iPhone to take a picture while cracking up....that would be just awful, don't you think?!?!

Feta Head.
Also, this is NOT a picture of my daughter in Christmas jammies in March. Nope!


On Saturday, I felt a little domestic so I decided to let Emersyn and her baby come with me on a little walk to get the mail, along with Henry, the doggie that we watched over the weekend for some friends. Now, anyone with a toddler knows that walking any distance can take awhile. When we FINALLY got to the mailbox, all the sudden I realized that I had banana bread in the oven that I had let bake for just about another five minutes and I COMPLETELY forgot about it!!! Oh wait, I mean, I did NOT totally forget about it! :) At that point I did NOT pick up my daughter, her stroller and baby and the dog and run back to the house, where I did not leave the baby and stroller on the front porch much to my daughter's dismay. I managed to salvage the banana bread, and while taking it out of the oven, my daughter was NOT screaming hysterically at her baby who was sitting rather peacefully in her stroller outside. Oy.

On our walk. :) This is also the scene of the crime where I left her baby while I tended to my banana bread. :)

And finally, speaking of my daughter......while on a walk the other day Emersyn thought it was amusing to keep dropping things out of her stroller. While crossing TV Hwy, a MAJOR intersection, Emersyn did NOT proceed to drop her baby doll in amusement and unbeknownst to me. Then, it was not ME who was startled by five different cars that started honking at me in the intersection, pointing back at the sidewalk where Emersyn had dropped her baby. I did NOT have a total panic attack seeing as I am fearful of ALL major intersections after getting in my accident this past summer and these honking cars were NOT adding to the peace of my walk. And when I finally realized why they were honking, it wasn't MY face that turned bright RED and flushed with embarrassment. Needless to say, Emersyn did NOT get her baby for the rest of that walk!

Okay, that's enough Not Me fun for now. I am staying home with Emersyn today due to her having either severe allergies or a cold AGAIN.

P.S. I totally didn't take Emersyn to Starbucks this morning as a little treat for our sick day, ha ha!

Riley dropped his crackers in the middle of street on our walk the other day. It wasn't TV HWY but it was still a busy road and I frantically scooped to pick it up as a car was coming. Reminder: remove all objects from the stroller before crossing busy streets :)

I did NOT grab the camera while my granddaughter was stuck in my footstool box with just her feet sticking out.

OH... how awful to have those cars honking at you! I just wonder what it would have been like if they hadn't...
