'Not Me' Monday & Giveaway WINNER!


Are you feeling guilty for leaving the windows open to catch a breeze when you know the air is on? Feel like a bag lady for wearing the same shirt for days on end? Get tricked by a fake news story and feel foolish? We'll don't! Not Me! Monday was born out of my desire to admit some of my imperfections and reveal a few moments I'd rather forget. You may find it therapeutic to join in and do the same thing!
Head over to MckMama's blog to see why everyone else isn't perfect!

I did not sit down and color an entire coloring book page with Abby and would never keep coloring after she left me sitting at the table, after 2 minutes of coloring. My sister-in-law, Sara, did not proceed to join me and color an entire page also.

We did not go and look at the most adorable puppies this weekend, for my sister-in-law and brother-in-law. Abby was not in total heaven sitting in the middle of 11 puppies, 'cuddling' with each one of them. The puppy that they picked out, does not already have the name 'Mauer'. They would never be picking up the puppy around the same time that baby #3 should be greeting us. 

I did not finish 80% of my laundry yesterday, just so that I would be able to do extra art projects with the kids today, and have 'nap time' to watch TV. I did not realize that when baby #3 comes, I will have laundry coming out my ears. {How do big families keep up with laundry?}

I did not decided this past weekend that Bauer (our dog) smelled like 'dog' and that he desperately needed a bath. I would never 'lock' him in the kitchen to dry, just because I can't stand the smell of 'wet dog.' He does not look and smell 100% better after his bath and brush. I would never cuddle more and give him more attention, just because he is now clean. 

The kids did not have a complete blast Trick-or-treating for Halloween. They did not make out with more candy than any of us will be able to eat. I would never have already had my fair share of the candy. {Not me!}

I am a mom of three, and I hate to break it to you, but in my experience, mom's of three don't keep up with the laundry. Or maybe it's just me! :)

I'm a mom of three also and there's ALWAYS laundry to do. I bought larger hampers because I got tired of seeing it spill out all the time. :) I do 2-3 loads a day just to make sure we all have clean clothes. If you find something that works better, let me know :D

Thanks for visiting my blog and the sweet comments. You have an adorable family.

I am overloaded with laundry already, I can't imagine having laundry and 3 kids. Congrats on the upcoming arrival of your newest baby! :)
