Color and Scream When They are Not Supposed to? Not my Children

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! 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.

So, I thought this post would be all about Sue and what she would not do over the last few weeks, but Caitlyn decided this morning she just had to get in on the action…

Let’s start with Sue (hey, just ’cause she is younger, doesn’t mean she always ever wants to follow after Sissy).

Sue is her own, very unique person. She does things her way, and not at all like her sister did at this age! Sue gets into trouble I don’t even think to suspect.

But…

She would never use a permanent marker on the auquadoodle mat, not my Sue. She would never also get that permanent marker on the wall around the aquadoodle mat. No, never. She would never, in the same night, color on the counters with crayons because, “I want to!” And she would never start this evening off by trying to eat the blue stamp from the Happy Meal. Oh, no, no, no.

(and I would never purchase said meal for my 2 year old without asking for the under age 3 toy)

And she would never, at a time unknown to us, color with a crayon on the kitchen cabinets, oh no!

Caitlyn would never get into Not Me Monday action by throwing a HUGE, HUGE fit this morning.  Oh no.  She would never get mad when told she could not wear her sleeping beauty dress to daycare.  She would never scream and kick because she wanted to wear the dress.  This would never continue for more than 30 minutes.  Not my child.  And she would never get so worked up during her fit that she hit her head on her rocking horse and get a bump on her head.  Oh no.  Not my child, not this morning. 

(Here is said child in another one of her pretty dresses on a peaceful day)

  1. Your kids have my Monica's personality. The coloring. I was just about to say there are worse places for permanent marker besides the aqua doodle mat. But, then you mentioned the walls and cabinets. Sigh. Prayers just said for you and me.

    Thanks for the prayers. Yes, my kids are definitely thier own persons. What will the next one be like???? Maybe I don't want to know…

    Maybe the similarities are why my girls and your Monica fell in love so quickly!
