I could never have joined 2 Facebook groups this week just to get up dates on baby Stellan..nope not me!
I certainly didn't check my twitter updates on my phone so many times while I was out of town that is went dead, that could never happen. I could never have been so upset that I couldn't get the updates that I almost started crying..that could not have happened.
I did not wake up in the middle of the night thinking about Stellan and his Mom and how they must be feeling...nope not me.
I didn't sneak out of my daughters birthday party to check the computer not once, not twice but three time sthat would have been wrong!
I could never have thought extra hard this week about how much I cherish my 3 kids and how I plan to enjoy every minute with them....Nope NOT me!

This is a picture of Amelia sitting next to our Christmas train display that goes under the tree. Every year it seems to get bigger and better and the girls love helping their dad set it up!

I was shocked and surprised by the fact that the kids weren't doing back flips about my special action packed plans.

I am lucky to have such a strong opinionated 5 year old even though she is SO strong and SO opinionated.
I am lucky to have 2 furry lovable cats even though one sleeps on my head and the other on my feet.

I did NOT pour half a shaker of pepper into my chicken and noodles right before they were ready to eat...nope that would have made them sneezy and nasty. I also did not dig out a frozen pizza, after I deemed the noodles inedible, and burn the crap out of it...nope not ME.
Olivia could never have worn a V neck dress with a little half bra thing of her sisters out to the MALL with her dad ...and the V could never have gone below the bottom of the bra so you could clearly see part of her belly...that would NOT happen! Well it actually COULD happen and it DID happen because I left to have breakfast with friends before anyone was dressed.
Our cable and Internet would not have gone out for the whole day Saturday so we couldn't watch the playoff basketball game...nope that would be unfair.
I could never have been trying to uncork a bottle of wine and had the cork split in two and get wedged halfway in the bottle...and I would NEVER have taken the handle of a spoon and pushed it into the bottle having it erupt up all over my face, shirt and hair...NO WAY would I have wanted the wine that much. I certainly didn't lick it off my hand either.
I did NOT get up and go running at 7am ,in the dark, two mornings last week...NOT ME... that would have been bordering on insane. I certainly do NOT plan on doing it at least twice this week...that would be completely insane!
Amelia could never have asked me when we were going to Walmart while I stood there sweaty and gross after running and when I told her after I shower she could never have said " but you look perfect for Walmart Mom!!" that would have been TOO FUNNY!!

2. Olivia forgot her library books which I found out about because her teacher sent me an email saying how upset Olivia was..when I got there it took me 10 minutes to find her and when I did she was smiling and happy and could have cared less about the books.
3. On my pull down menu on my computer there was a recent search for poop.com.
4. When given the choice of going anywhere in the world for dinner the kids discussed it an decided on Culver's.
5. I pulled out my 5 year old nephew's first loose tooth
6. I am going to a restaurant for breakfast called First Watch but my 5 year old keeps asking me if she can come to Weight Watchers with me tomorrow morning.
7. I looked out the window and Amelia was sitting in a lawn chair on top of the over turned swimming pool.
8. Chris took time out of his work day to watch part of a basketball game but the minute the kids start fighting he has a "phone call" and retreats to his office and shuts the door.
9. I got an email from the elementary school reminding us it is peanut butter donation time and if each student could bring in 3 jars they might make their goal.
10. Every time I walk into the family room the same episode of Sponge Bob is on at the exact same place.
11. Facebook changed it's look AGAIN and totally sent me into a tailspin.
12. We ended up eating dinner at a restaurant called the Liberty Tavern (after we vetoed Culver's) and discussed the Declaration of Independence the entire time.
13. I am no longer a waxing virgin..

I could never have registered my BABY for Kindergarten this week that would have made me sad or maybe NOT.
I certainly didn't send my 10 year old to school only to get a call from the school nurse before school even started to come pick her up. Nope. NOT me!
There is no way I guilted Chris into going and sitting through an hour of second grade presentations just so I didn't have to go that would have been mean and torturous!
I did NOT rock out on the Wii and sing Hungry Like the Wolf on a bet involving ice cream..could never have happened!
There is absolutely positively no WAY that Chris went out and bought the new iMac without even discussing it with me first ...that could be grounds for divorce especially because I am a total PC girl!
I certainly did not notice Amelia had blue toothpaste in her hair as she was climbing out of the car to go to preschool and I certainly did not try and scrape it out with a Starbucks card that happened to be sitting in my cup holder. It really did NOT come out but I bet she DID smell minty fresh all day!
I could never have gone running for the first time in a long time and been so stiff the next morning I could hardly get up...no that would never happen to youthful in shape ME.
I am totally NOT afraid to admit that Rob Lowe crying is totally sexy and it makes me want him even more even though I know Chris is reading this :)

This is the first NON-kid picture from my February 2009 folder. My cat, the Captain, sleeps this way every single night...I call him my kitty scarf! No wonder I have insomnia.

At Urgent Care the Dr. swabbed Caroline for strep and checked her ears and took her temperature (and she did not have one) and it was decided she was just at the very end of a common virus and probably not even contagious anymore. This brings us to the McDonald's visit. I was already planning on taking Amelia to McDonald's to play with her cousins and have lunch after preschool. For some reason I had it in my head that taking Caroline to sit there and drink a milkshake was against the rules (not sure who's rules). I don't know if I thought that the lady mopping the floors was going to yell at me or maybe the elderly cashier would say something. Authority figures scare me but I have to get over that and be an advocate for my children. In most cases these people are being paid for a service and are hired by me. I have to stop being scared of disagreeing with opinions that aren't the same as mine. I know what is best for my children and can't be afraid to step forward and speak my mind.

There is no way my 10 year old got up ever single day last week and took her own temperature and looked down her own throat to try and get out of going to school...NOPE she could never have done that. She also DID NOT wake up Saturday morning with a terrible cough and sore throat..that would have been sooo unfair!
I certainly did NOT volunteer in Amelia's preschool class without taking a shower and the teacher did NOT say that I looked like I didn't feel well and could go home if I wanted...NOPE didn't happen. I really DID stick it out and stay though.
I could never have watched Karate Kid after 25 years and been totally glued to the TV like it was the best movie ever..no way that would ever happen!
I did NOT hand craft Amelia's birthday invitations because I couldn't find any I liked and they certainly did not end up being twice as expensive as the store bought ones. NO WAY.
I would never have spent an hour Dysoning just to have some peace from the whining..nope not ME.
I did NOT pretend to be asleep when two of the three kids woke up at the same time crying..nope that would not have been nice.
I would never have forgotten that I signed the girls up for a gymnastics class that starts this week and only remembered by sheer chance..nope that could not have happened.
The power could not have gone out for over an hour during dinner time with my chicken half cooked.. that would have sucked big time!... although the wine kept flowing and kept me warm and in a good mood.
Chris could never have run outside in his flannel PJ's at midnight to yell at some kids putting signs in our yard...NO way that would have made us old and crotchety!
