Not Me! Monday! Tuesday!

Not Me! Monday! was created by MckMama, who is still with baby Stellan in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit of Children's Hospital in the midwest. Stellan is still having problems with his heart, and is now scheduled for surgery. They are really trying to attempt medications to get his heart beating normally so he can grow a little, as the surgery on this young of a baby is extremely risky. Please continue to keep them in your prayers.

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! Tuesday!

I did NOT purposefully ignore my Not Me! Monday! yesterday as the sun was shining, it was 70 degrees, and I wanted to play outside with the kids instead of finishing my blog. Oh, wait. Yes, yes I did. HeeHee!

Ben does NOT have his third mystery black eye in as many weeks. It is NOT always the same eye, and I am NOT clueless as to what keeps happening. I am NOT starting to worry that people think I am beating my children.

I did NOT give Ben a banana to eat to distract him while I cut his hair. I did NOT justify it by telling myself that hair is protein, so if he did get some on his banana, it would be good for him.

I did NOT go into the twins' room to get them for lunch, and find Grant standing on the glider rocker to turn on the fan, and Ben standing in a dresser drawer to try and stick his finger in the fan. I did NOT make a sarcastic comment in my head to my hubby in the 'told ya so' tone about why I really wanted to bolt their furniture to the wall, and he did not think it was necessary.

I did NOT feed my kids hot dogs for lunch. Two days in a row. Mmmmm, nitrates, anyone?

I did NOT burst into tears when I got the letter in the mail from the hospital that we were approved for the program that allows our remaining $4,598 hospital bill to now be $0. Marty and I did NOT do a happy dance since being so poor last year finally paid off.

I did NOT wonder why the kids were so cranky at 10:30 in the morning last week, and then suddenly realize that I forgot to feed them breakfast. Nope, not me!

I am NOT sitting here, Drew on my lap, knowing I have more to write, but cannot remember right now. I am NOT giving up and letting this be it for the week because the sunshine is calling once again.

That's a TON of NOTS! Very cute! I think you made the proper purchase in those drawers - IF your little one can stand in them to see IF he can reach the fan ... thank God for his shortness!
God bless and DON'T play in the sun! JK

That is wonderful news about the hospital bill! I know I would NOT be doing a happy dance too. LOL

We could hardly get anything done yesterday due to the great weather as well! And it's beautiful again today! YIPPEE! So rare for us in April, but I'll take it!

Congrats about the hospital bill. Now if I could just get MasterCard to do that...
