Not Me Monday!!

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

I was NOT been very busy last week as super hot hubby was on a work vacation so there are so many things that I did NOT do!!!! 

1.  I did NOT stop to think if it would be ok for the kids to have a Slurpee for dinner one night.  Now, in my defense, it was very hot and we needed something to cool down AND I figured that if we got a fruit flavored it may suffice.  I did NOT think about it for a while and I did NOT ask the kids their opinion on this as anyone with a brain knows that the kids would say it would be ok.  

2. I did NOT freak out when my oldest daughter was hit with a rocket (baseball) in her eye.  My freak out was NOT the fact that I figured she was going to be discolored or swollen...it was based solely on the fact that we would be making, yet another, trip to the ER and I just didn't want to go back there two weeks after our last trip and see the same people.  I mean what would people think???  I am quite certain they would remember us too as my youngest daughter was trying to sit on the doctors chair and simply running amuck.  I figured if they saw us coming again they would lock the door and turn off the lights so, I was pleased to no end when we realized we wouldn't have to go.  

3.  I do NOT think that my daughters eye is the most beautiful shade of purple and I am NOT so proud of her for wanting to go back out and play ball on Tues night. I mean, really, what parent would want their kid to go back out to the same sport that she was so terribly injured at???  That would be so mean.  

4.  I am NOT even more proud of her for trying to match her dress to the shade of her eye.  I am NOT thinking I have the toughest little girl in the whole world with the most amazing tenacity that it makes me want to cry!!! 


5.  I am NOT going to post a picture of her eye since I said I would never post any pictures of my kids on my blog.  If I did post a picture of her eye...it would NOT look like this and it would NOT make me smile to know that behind that discolored eye lid is the most beautiful eye with a twinkle in it that I love to see. 


6.  It is NOT family game night...Help me...enough said!!!

That is a pretty picture of her eye. I bet it looked smashing with her dress!
I hope you are surviving game night. You are a brave, brave woman to take that on by yourself.

How neat that she's matching it to her outfits! Today she'll wear purple, then maybe blue-ish green tomorrow, then yellow....

Poor girl. That's one game she'll remember forever!!

That would have freaked me out! Glad she is doing OK.

This IS The Fun Part! said...

That IS a beautiful color. And ya know what - a picture that close-up really doesn't count as a picture. I don't think even the best of us would recognize her in public!

And I'm certain that the more you do game night, the more you will all grow to love it!! or not!

#4 is too cute! Gotta love kids!

I have to agree that that's a great shade of purple she's got going on there. And I'm quite impressed that she felt compelled to match eye to dress. Very impressed indeed! What a fashion forward thinking child. You raised a good one.

I have friends that have paid good money for that shade of eyeshadow. I'm just sayin. Way to rock it out, lol.
