Not Me! Monday

I did not squeal with joy after finding my lost bottle of Pat on Black fingernail polish in a purse from last fall. Not me! It'd be ridiculous to have 4under3 in the house and still find time to paint nails anyway? And really, I find joy in surprises like diapers with hefty waste and leglines anyways. Not fingernail polish.

And this morning--before anyone was up--I did not run to the coffee shop to buy whole beans and a ginormous monster Cinnamon roll for only MYself! Not me! And then, once I was back in the drive way, I didn't slouch down in the car until I finished it completely, licking my fingertips clean and disposing of the box in our dumpster. Come on, I teach my children how to share here.

And last week, after unknowingly leaving my husband's bank card at a home design store, I surely did not bite his head off the next morning when he asked me if he could have it back..yet I couldn't find it. I'd never! Regardless of having dug through every purse, pocket, and nook in the car, and regardless of the fact that my heart rate had hit the ceiling, I'm cool under pressure! I never get worked up over those kind of things.


For more Not Me! fun, head over to My Charming Kids.

I really can't imagine you getting worked up, actually. But I guess I'll believe you.

Glad to hear birthday party was a fun one yesterday. She's four, right? When I was four I had a Care Bear cake (a homemade cake with white frosting and four plastic Care Bears plopped in the center). And I think I wore a Care Bear shirt to match.

OMG! I have that same EXACT nail polish from last FAll! I didn't lose mine- my daughters snagged it from me. I have 4 under 14 and can't find time to paint my nails- at least not if I want enough time for them to dry properly. lol. I might just dig it out and give it a try though.:)
