Not me! Monday!

What a week! I have several mentions to return, but I love Not Me! Mondays. 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.


  • Monkey would never have turned 10 months old today. His milestones are never a little bitter sweet; his beloved Nana has been gone for four months now.

  • Our sweet little Monkey couldn't have been diagnosed with a mild case of bronchitis. If that was true, then it would have been our placid baby that has been acting like an absolute maniac from the steroids. That also means it could have been my charming baby that crawled so fast he has carpet burns. That also means it was Monkey that proceeded to taste and fling his laundry around the entire living room.

  • It wasn't me that sent a couple of mean texts after a few glasses of wine. I am not still contemplating how to patent a sobriety check point for cell phones.

  • My husband certainly didn't bring me lilies and Lush products. I know for a fact that it wasn't us that enjoyed a Valentine's lunch at PF Changs. If that was the case then it was Monkey who ate his first Chinese food and methodically ate rice grain by grain.

  • Oh and I know it's not me that talks or blogs about Monkey all the time, and I know he didn't make a miraculous recovery at the ER. He was not acting like a dying seal right before the ER doctor came in. The ER doctor did not look at my husband and I like we were crazy people and make a statement like this "I'll step outside and see if I can hear him make the same cough you mentioned."

  • And not that I like to mention Delicate Flower from time to time, but he certainly didn't give a girl a flower for Valentine's day!

Did the ER doctor really say that? Oh my.. I probably would have lost it. I'm just sayin'...

Nathan gets really hyper when we have to give him the steroids too.. that's why I wait until all other options are used up before giving him the steroids.. because he *really* doesn't sleep when he is on them... lol.

I can't believe the ER doc, like Emily, I would have killed him! As far as the steroids, hopefully they will calm down a little. Hang in there and I hope Monkey feels better soon :)

ugh... I hated giving those steroids to my boys! They would climb the walls they would be so crazy hyper.

Hope your monkey gets better soon! Hang in there. :)

I remember when my son appeared to have disconnected his arm or something and we rushed him to the doctor's office on a Saturday and waited forever and then when he came in, the arm seemed fine. I felt like a fool. But I'm glad your baby is doing better and getting the medicine ... even it is making him nuts! Hang in there!

And eating rice grain by grain! Wow! That would try my patience!

Q gave a girl, as in someone other than you, a flower?! that is exciting!

grain by grain rice eating is painful to watch.

drunken texts, phone calls, emails....
loved ones should really remove all forms of technology from us as soon as they see us with a glass of wine.

I though the danger was cars and alcohol....never though of the cell phone!
