Not Mine Monday, August 2009 Edition

In a shameless spoof of MckMama’s Not Me Monday, I am posting a Not Mine Monday (which she has since also done).

  • My children did not yell “Let’s put on our party hats!” and then run around the house with underwear on their heads.
  • My child did not avoid going to sleep, and try to stay up with the adults when we were playing board games in the dining room. And if that child complained that his bed wasn’t comfortable enough and I asked how he would be comfortable, he most certainly did not respond with “by sitting up and playing something“.

And here’s a Not Me to round out this post…

  • I did not discover that the baby sits quietly in my lap while I play 1080 Avalanche on the Game Cube (snowboarding video game for those of you who didn’t understand the last half of that sentence). And I definitely did not offer to take the baby when he was fussing around bedtime, because that meant I could get in a few games. (Note to wife: if I did do that, it would be only for the baby’s sake.)

In peace I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O LORD, make me to dwell in safety.

    I don’t usually comment on blogs of people I don’t know, but I clicked on your blog from MckMama’s and I have to comment… My husband does the same thing with our 11 month old. Around bedtime he always says, “Do you want me to get her to sleep by playing The Biggs?” HAHA

    Seriously, wives get over the “dad using the video game” as a baby entertainment aid thing. I was steamed for a while that my daughter LOVED watching DH play WoW, but it’s not so bad now!
