Not Me! Monday!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This was created by MckMama, head on over to her blog and see what she and everyone else have NOT been doing this week!

I did NOT jump for joy, do a happy dance, and giggle like a schoolgirl when I gave grant his last dose of antibiotics on Saturday. I did NOT go to bed with a huge smile, knowing that my alarm wasn't going to go off at two AM like it had been for weeks. So because of my desire for blissful slumber, there is NO WAY that Marty's alarm that he had set last week while camping was somehow set to repeat weekly, meaning that it went off at two am. NOPE, I enjoyed my sleeping immensely.

I did NOT go into the kitchen this morning to find Drew standing with the knife drawer open, reaching in with one hand to grab the pizza wheel. I did NOT jump, and then sigh with relief that he had only gotten to the pizza wheel, then slowly remove his hand and close the drawer, only to see that he was holding my 10" chef's knife with the other hand. I am a calm, cool, and collected Mom, so I did NOT suddenly experience a heart rate so rapid that I think it actually stopped beating for a few beats, seeing him hold the handle of the knife so precariously, as it was pointed down directly over his foot.

I did NOT manage to get it away from him and put it back in the drawer, still speaking softly and trying not to have a heart attack. I carefully closed the drawer and made sure that both child locks were securely in place, and breathed a sigh of relief.

Mr. seventeen-month-old baby Drew did NOT then show me that he could open both locks in less than ten seconds, revealing the beautiful drawer of shiny, sharp knives again.

I did NOT immediately remove all the knives from the drawer and put them on the shelf where the coffee mugs go, knowing that it was unlikely that he could get them there. Not impossible, but unlikely. For a less than one and a half year old boy who can open child proof locks, nothing is impossible.

This type of curiosity/problem solving skill set is NOT why I have been blogging so infrequently. I mean, I have TONS of spare time to blog, I am NOT constantly chasing a toddler in a child-proofed home as he gets into things that are locked away.

what did you NOT do this week?
