Not Me Monday--Reluctant Version

Yo, it's me, Mama M...(really it is...but maybe I should say, "it's not"...since this is "Not Me! Monday", and all...), and it is not me who was not going to do a Not Me! Monday post with MckMama and gang.

Sometimes I think I participate entirely, too much in blog carnivals. But, that's beside the point...or not...since it's why I wasn't going to NMM?!

Again...confused. Sorry.

Anywho...I was not the frazzled mother of the screaming, scratch that...screeching girl in the middle of Macy's today...and Kohls...and Target...Bath and Body Works...American Eagle...Macy's again...multiple bathrooms, and also, JCPenney. Nope...wasn't me... you can't prove it.

So, if that mother was not me...then it certainly wasn't me who wanted to sell my children to the highest, again...scratch that...I'd've paid someone to take 'em. Unfortunately...I'm afraid that all the money in the world wouldn't have been enough to offer someone...once they got a peek at the two hooligans I wasn't cartin' around.

I am not so utterly exhausted from not being that mother, that I sooooo didn't want to just plunge myself into an entirely too hot bubble bath...however, Calgon wouldn't be nearly enough to "take me away" today.

And now...I do not sit here, with a smile on my face, and a softening in my I listen baby belly laughs and soak in warm baby snuggles. Nope...certainly couldn't be me...Mama Cruella DeVille.

The end.



  1. Good grief what a day! Hope your night is filled with all the belly laughs and snuggles that you can stand.
    Hugs, my friend.

  2. I'll trade you your screaming baby for my whiny clingy baby..straight across dude!

  3. I think we have all as mothers been there. Atleast you were honest enough to admit it!

  4. i giggled at your post. too funny. we've all been there.

  5. Oh no...I'm taking my kids shopping today and may chicken out of it after reading this...;) Sorry you had a day like that and I hope today's much better!

  6. I think we've all been there - kudos to you for having gone through it! I loved the story .. I think because I can relate so well! :)

  7. I, and I'm sure many others, can relate! Hope your day is better today! :)

  8. I too feel like I blog carnival too much...but it's so darn fun! Good for you for braving the crowds with your little munchkins. :)

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out.

And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips... (Lemme just inte
