Day late and a dollar short

Not Me Monday has come and gone. And here I am.

This week I did not (cough) fix my cell phone by using scotch tape. I did not just look at my computer and cause it's demise. I am not currently afraid to plug anything in and then wonder if it will work. Not me.

I did not have a conversation with my children about the water cycle. I was not trying to explain to them that rain does not come from Jesus urinating from Heaven. My children would never come up with something so proposterous.

I did not laugh out loud when Samuel got so excited about seeing a "fire department" on the corner tonight. It was not really a fire hydrant.

I did not let my children make new friends with the nicest (really) people sitting next to us at a track meet tonight. I did not catch my daughter asking the nice lady if she had any gum in her purse. The nice lady did not go rummaging through her purse and show said daughter it's entire contents.

At the conclusion of the track meet I did not realize what time it was and still decide to let my little runners take a lap around the track. I did not smile when they ran past me and made it a good half mile before I had to pull them off the track. I did not think the funniest thing was Samuel running backwards past a group of girls doing a cool down and yell "YOU CAN'T CATCH ME!" That would not have been funny at all.

This is not for Rebekah's benefit who currently shares the MckMamma fascination with me.

How to make lipstick

According to Anna it's quite easy to make lipstick.  Take some glue and put it in a bowl.  Add whatever color glitter you want.  Then add juice to make it the right color.

Not much to say here


But I can make a list.  I can always make a list.

1.  Samuel has not spoken of "Jonathan and Jennifer" (his imaginary friends from winter) in over a week.  For a while, we couldn't go more than 10 minutes without hearing about them.

2.  My summer break is 4 days long.  School starts back up in 4 days.

3.  Anna began packing for the beach today.  She packed a hat, three undershirts, four pair of socks, a pair of tights, and a HelloKitty stuffed "face" (not the whole animal).  She admits it's too early to pack pajamas because she might want to wear them and then forget to repack them.

4.  I let Samuel pee in the grass outside this week.
