Not Me Monday - 21st Edition

If I'm posting a picture of my daughter wearing my underwear* then it must be Monday - Not Me Monday to be exact. You can read more Not Me posts over at MckMama's blog. People all over the world air their dirty laundry so-to-speak in a therapeutic sort of way.

While Sam was at school one morning Julia and I worked on the mountain of laundry that forms throughout the week. I ran downstairs to answer the doorbell and came back up to find her wearing an ensemble similar to this one. I did not ask her to recreate the outfit so I could take a picture. Not me!

*Those are not OldNavyMaternityUnderwear. The last time I was pregnant was almost 2 1/2 years ago, so they are definitely regular ol' undies.

Since I already admitted I took a picture of Julia in an oh so flattering outfit, I might as well share this photo too. Sam informed me that Julia had pulled a bunch of toilet paper off the role so I yelled down the hall for her to roll it back up. Here's my 2 year old's best effort:

We did not use that roll bit by bit until it was all gone so a whole roll didn't go to waste. Not this family!

We're all about saving money where we can these days so when I couldn't find my phone Saturday morning I started to panic, equally scared as this time. I took the kids to a HUGE free event in our old town and I had thought I'd left my phone in the car by mistake. When we trudged out to the car afterwards I rummaged through the car for my phone but couldn't find it. I seriously considered taking the kids back inside even though it would require carrying almost 80 pounds of kids a loooooong ways. I needed my phone. I didn't have a choice but then I had a thought...what if it fell on the ground when I opened the door?
My phone was not laying under my car, in the snow, directly in line of the tires for 2 hours. There was no way I had an important voice mail from PapaBear waiting for me. Nope. That stuff never happens to me! I always know where everything is.
At. all. times.

What didn't you do this week?


  1. I love your Not Me Monday! It made me laugh. I am glad to hear that we are not the only family with a MT.Laundry! :-)

    Have a great day!


  2. Love your Not Me's! Mine would wear the underwear on his head like a hat!

  3. Mountain of laundry, child wearing my underpants (usually she steals my bra), messing with the toilet paper... we use it any way also,carrying two children, dropped cell phone. My dear, it sounds like you are talking about my house! Glad you found your phone. Happy day!

  4. I love the picture of the TP. I have found that more than once in my house, that or I find it rolled down the hall in to my girls room, while, they are cleaning their dolls hinney.

  5. *chucklin'* Ohhh, the tp pic is too funny.


  6. I never wear my maternity underwear either.

  7. I thought you were referring to the time you had dropped your phone into Brother Bear's bed when you were tucking him in...I haven't gotten to that other post yet, so when I saw it was different I quickly closed it...wouldn't want to ruin the suspense!
    Ah, I just LOVE when they mess with the TP...great Not Me's!

  8. Too funny! Great not me monday!

  9. What is it with our kids wanting to wear our undies? Uh yeah, Cameron wears mine as a hat. I cringe everytime I see him and wonder if he got it out of the clean laundry basket or the dirty clothes pile. Gotta love our little ones!!


  10. Re: Imse Vimse liners
    I use a whole one, baby size, not toddler. But, as long as they only have urine on them I wash them over and over. I LOVE them.

  11. I love the TP picture. That made me laugh out loud. She's so darn cute!

  12. Why is it I always have a mountain of laundry but only have 2 kids?

    So proud of you for whiddling down that "mountain" of crazy toilet paper, too!

    Have a great week,
