Not Me!! Monday

Well folks, it's Monday and you know what that means... Time to deny what we did not do this week. This blog carnival was started by MckMama at So when you are done here, be sure to check out what hundreds of others have not done this week.

I did NOT have a busy weekend full of graduation parties and celebrations. I did NOT spend all day Saturday at Emma's house with several friends and completely lose track of time. (Emma is Ryan's girlfriend) So I did NOT show up late for a pool party for one of my Sunday School girls. Since I was not late, I did not swing by really quickly to tell her I would be back in about two hours. I first had to take the boys to their end of the year pizza party.

So in two hours, Zach and I did NOT head back to the apartment complex where the party was being held. Unfortunately, Sarah was no longer there. But since Zach was NOT begging me to swim, I did NOT let him get in the water and swim. That's against the rules - so I would most certainly NOT let him swim in some random apartment pool when we have a perfectly good pool in our backyard.

After about 10 minutes, Zach did NOT get out of the pool with his infamous "poop squat." (You see, Zach does NOT have a pooping problem - he has excellent bowel control. He does NOT drink the pool water and if he did, it would NOT make him poop. And if it did make him poop, he would certainly NOT go in his pants!)

Anyway... Zach gets out of the pool with the poop squat - I mean Zach does NOT get out of the pool with the poop squat. Some kid who was also swimming in the pool does NOT push Zach back in the water. So Zach does NOT think this is an invitation to keep swimming. Zach does NOT go over to where the boys are and keep swimming. I do NOT get up to look at what's going on and see the poop in the pool. And we are not just talking about one piece of poop. We are talking a cloudy mess of disgustingness!

Being the person with great integrity, I did NOT pull Zach out of the water and bolt out of the apartment complex. I did NOT race to my car with a screaming child behind me. I did NOT peel out of the parking lot and drive super fast home. I did NOT keep looking in the rearview mirror to see if anyone was following me!! And I was NOT laughing my head off.

Because... it serves that kid right. Pushing my son into the pool.

On a less disguisting note... I am NOT super-duper thankful for Emma's mom and Maddie's mom. They are the gals I hung out with on Saturday. We each have special needs kids and when we are together, our kids are just normal and we all support each other. I did NOT want to jump up and hug one of the gals because she understood my frustration about seeking a diagnosis and getting tired of the run-around. And not having the energy to constantly pursue things!! I do NOT look forward to spending more time with these super-fun girls!

What did you NOT do this week? Leave me a comment!!
