Not Me! Monday - Adequacy/Inadequacy

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival full of adequacy and inadequacies was originally created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been consistently doing this week.

In addition to going straight to So's 9:15 Bible play last week immediately following the "Bris" (Jewish circumcision and baby naming ceremony) that I made for Bam, I certainly did not keep two kids who usually nap, awake so I could schlep them and an almost two week old baby to So's "Recycling Program" this past Monday. This certainly was not an "event" that I had to prepare two hours in advance for, so I could watch children sing "This Land Is My Land..." for only FIVE minutes of bliss.
I CERTAINLY am not the world's most awesome and devoted mother. No, not me.

I am pretty sure that I am not the one, who many times in her exhausted stupor at 4 in the morning, attempted to diaper her baby's face and feed his tush.

I did not panic for even a second when I heard Bam crying at five in the morning but could not find him in his pack n' play, only to look over at Hun who was curious as to why I was frantically throwing receiving blankets out of the pack n' play, while he was lovingly holding Bam in his arms.

It is not me who laughs hysterically every time my tiny son passes gas because he sounds like a full grown adult male. I would never be that immature.

It is not me who has yet to completely change out the winter clothes for the summer clothes in our house. I can not possibly be grateful, then for the less than fifty degrees in June that seems to have become a staple in Chicago. I would never publicly express gratitude for crappy weather.

It was not me who left two of Ate's sippy cups in my car with fermenting apple juice inside which bubbled over into the console to create a sticky, smelly mess. And if I did, I certainly did not make respectfully ask Hun to clean up the mess.

It is not me who sometimes has it together and sometimes does not.

How did your week not go?

lol! I don't believe that Bam could be that "manly" yet.

You are such an awesome Mommy, dragging the crew around, baby in tow...a bit different than baby #1 huh.

At least you didn't give Ate that juice to drink...I did NOT do that to my two boys. I did NOT think my boys were being picky when they said their apple juice was spicy but instead it was turning into apple wine!

Great list!

I think it sounds like you have a cute little baby in the house who happens to be making your household (and mostly you) slightly crazy right now. Wouldn't it be nice if the rest of us had someone cute to blame our Not Me's on instead of it just being our normal way of life?!!
