Not Me Monday and "All about MEme"

My children do NOT STILL all have croup.

Whenever Lilly coughs, she does NOT make the excuse "I'm NOT sick, I just swallowed down the wrong tube!"

Lilly is NOT a diva.

Mahone does NOT talk in his sleep and we do NOT have these kinds of conversations:

waking up: I Don't wanna do that! I odn't want to! NO!!!

Me: You don't want to do what, honey?

M: I don't want to go down there!

Me: Where?

M: I don't want to go parachuting! I just don't want to go down there!

Me: you don't have to honey- it's just a dream.

M: I won't just jump out of the plane!

Me: It was just a dream honey, no one is going to make you jummp out of a plane.

M:okay...where's my indiana jones hat?

Scarlet's Baby Stella (Below) is NOT continually on "time out."

And whenever Stella (Scarlet's favorite baby) is missing, she does NOT walk around in tears screaming "STELLA!!!!!!!!!!!!" as though the baby will come running when she calls.

I do NOT think it's posetively hilarious, and it does NOT remind me of "A Streetcar Named Desire" when Scarlet roams the house screaming "Stella!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I do NOT crack up, big time.

I have NOT been known to briefly make Baby Stella 'disappear' for short moments at a time, just so Scarlet will NOT scream "Stella!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" because, that is not a nice mommy. And I am certainly above such things.

okay, that was just perfect because I was so thinking streetcar named desire, and the two sentences were separated by a picture. Cracks me up!
Just this morning I Heard my little man giggling, I asked what was so funny, he said grandpa, I said why, he said grandpa was breaking the bubbles. Then I realized he was still asleep

Loved your post! Happy Monday!

Rachel said...

As soon as I read the first Stella, I was hearing it in my head from A Streetcar Named Desire. I would hide the doll just to hear her do it, if I was at your house!

Lourie said...
