Not Me Monday - Socks


I thought today would be an appropriate day to join back in with the Not Me Monday Blog Carnival along with MckMama. She's such a hoot, isn't she? And I've definitely got some good stuff this week. Here I go....

I did not take a fidgety, sleepy toddler into Walmart in the middle of the day on the 1st of the month. Do you know how horrendous the lines are at that time? I should mention also, that I did not forget to bring a list too! You've seen those poor women before, the one standing in line with a loaded down shopping cart, child screaming, onlookers rolling their eyes with disgust. Yeah, it was that kind of day! I've been in this same predicament before. You'd think I'd learn my lesson. Maybe I should get it tattooed to my hand so I'll remember. NO SHOPPING WITH TIRED TODDLER!

How about those toddlers? The second year can be very trying, don't you know? My daughter got 2 little scratches on her face over a month ago. Well, they just won't heal because she can't keep her cute little fingers away from them! What's a mom to do? I've tried everything!No way, I did not tape socks onto her arms! And of course I did not take her out in public like that. And by the way, this picture was taken several weeks ago. And her face is still not healed! Any suggestions?

Enough of these Not Me's. Even after 4 children, I still haven't perfected this mothering thing!


Have you come by my blog on a Tuesday?! Well, if you haven't, then you are missing a great opportunity! I host a super follow up to MckMama's Not Me Monday. It's called Toot Your Horn Tuesday. After serving up all of our embarrassing moments, we finally get to brag about what we actually got right! I hope you'll play along! Same as MckMama, just grab the button from my sidebar, write your post and then link back to me tomorrow. I promise you'll have fun. We all need a pat on the back now and then.

Socks taped on! Genius!! Poor little honey! Do you leave them open to air at night? Try some anitbacterial ointment also! If anything else, bring her in and have her doc check it out!
