Not Me! Monday

It's been months since I've posted a Not Me! Monday, but here we go!
  • I did not allow Evie to jump in a huge puddle with her friends at the very rainy church picnic yesterday. She was not the only one in the group wearing socks and tennis shoes (as opposed to sandalls), so she did not have to ride home with very, very soggy feet. She did not have a blast doing it.
  • While grocery shopping the other night, I did not tear up as I put a number "1" birthday candle in the shopping cart, remembering how not-so-very long ago it seemed that I placed an identical candle in my cart for my soon-to-be six year old. Audrey cannot be nearly a year old already, and there is no way Evie is days away from six (and I have not contemplated the fact that six years is already one third of the way to eighteen).
  • I did not spend a good part of an entire day cleaning out the jungle area on the far side of our driveway. We do not have nine yard watse bags of proof of this treacherous project.

  1. Awwwe! I know they grow up way too fast!

  2. I am still marveling at how my baby is gradually disappearing over time, yet the left-over baby fat on my stomach hasn't changed a bit.

    I was just thinking about Audrey as a one-year-old. Time goes by so quickly.
    Since I know you have loads of time on your hands, would you ever consider putting up pictures of your other birthday cake creations? I'm not sure where most of August has gone, but that leaves us with September just around the corner. Olivia has begun talking about her birthday now...oh dear. Where to begin...I'd love some of your ideas!

  4. My daughter is just days away from being six years old too (12 to be exact, she told me just this morning) so I know how you feel. My oldest is now seven and a half and I feel time is just slipping by.

  5. Just stopping by from Mckmama's. Sweet post. Babies and children grow up way too fast...Kathy
