Meme Monday

Mckmama- Not Me Monday
Mckmama- Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can click on the link above to read more about what people did NOT do this weekend.

This weekend, I did NOT push my poor child around Six Flags from 1pm until 9pm in her stroller and she did NOT love it. (The kid LOVES her stinking stroller AND being outdoors.) I did NOT make my husband, two other adults, and my child wait in line for over an hour to ride "Batman: The Ride" just because it's my favorite!!! (Well, because it's my favorite AND because the people working the ride were being ridiculously slow - not just that ride - the whole park!) It did NOT take me almost 30 minutes to get a drink refilled when I was only the 6th person in line. I also did NOT wait for another almost 20 minutes to buy my child a Batman onesie (cape included) because the girl at the register was relatively clueless and out of ones. I did not tell the poor teenager that it wasn't her fault that she ran out of ones as she thanked me for not being mad at waiting so long. I did NOT then have her ask me if she could go answer the phone while she was in the middle of checking me out after I had waited almost 20 minutes.

Oh, and I did NOT have a super-fantastic BLAST at Six Flags because I am NOT a twelve year old. :)

On Mother's Day, I did not go to Cafe Intermezzo for lunch and I did NOT order a tiny salad for my meal just so I could get a piece of tiramisu for dessert. I also did NOT have some white chocolate coffee with my tiramisu and make myself miserable and sick from having the first too-big, high-fat meal in over a month.

And most importantly, I did NOT carry my child screaming and crying frantically (to the point you would think she was having a panic-attack) to the car FOUR TIMES while trying to get materials for making her birthday party invites AND a back-up Bear for when this one finally hits the dust. I was NOT ashamed as neighbors and people in the parking lot looked at me as if I were harming my child or being a bad mother. And I did NOT call my husband and ask him to set up the card table in the back yard so we could eat dinner out there because all the poor thing REALLY wanted was to be outside.

So there you have it! What did YOU not do this weekend?

Love & Shipoopies,

Six flags? How fun. My kids would love that. I can't wait to go back to the amusement park this summer.
Yum to Tiramisu. I don't blame you for getting a small salad.
Hope your Mother's Day was a blessed one.

Good for you for making the small salad choice! And for treating yourself to Tiramisu!
We haven't ventured to Six Flags with the kids yet--but love it as grown ups!
Sounds like a fabulous Mother's Day--and I have no idea what carrying a screaming child must be like. Hmmmm. No idea.
