Not My Child! Monday

This week I am mixing it up a little and doing Not My Child! Monday, a fun little twist on our weekly confessions of all our mommyhood shortcomings and oh-so-embarrassing incidents. This week I get to confess all the NOT so great things that my kids have done.....so go check out My Charming Kids to see all the things everyone else {& maybe their kiddos} has NOT been doing!
*********
Eli does NOT have a love of buckets, NOT specifically buckets on his head. He has NOT been cultivating his love of buckets since September of last year. I do NOT think it is SUPER cute and adorably funny, so I do NOT take pictures of him eveytime I catch him with a bucket on his head!

While on our way out to lunch a few weeks ago, I did NOT let Grant chose where we went to eat. The conversation did NOT go something like this:

Grant: I want to go to the place with the wheelbarrow in its' name.
Me: {totally confused}
Grant: You know the one by Target with the wheelbarrow in its' name.
Me:{ still totally confused}
Grant: That one! {pointing as we pass by Cracker Barrel}
Me: Oh, now I get it:)

Awww he is so sweet. Zoe went through the stage of buckets. Gavyn taught her how to run around and say I'm a bucket head.

Eli is so cute. I love the buckets!

LOL at the place with the wheelbarrel. So funny!!

Rachel said...

Love the buckets on the heads!

It reminds me of when my kids would get presents and they would put the boxes on their heads. The boxes were a bigger hit than the actual present!

Blessings on your Monday.

LOL! Eli is so cute! Kids are funny! I love how they describe things...Emily still gets frustrated sometimes because I have no idea what she's talking about and she thinks she's being perfectly clear! {and she probably is...I just don't get it! haha!}

Jenilee said...

Sandra said...

So cute!

Emily said...

so cute...Charlie's obsessed with his head and putting things on it too. But he won't wear a hat...what's that all about!?

Faith said...

Thanks for your comment on my blog! Yes, foam crafts are AWESOME!
My kids did one of those seed planters and we got zero flowers from it :( just a few measly sprouts before it died. My hope is that flowers OUTSIDE will fare better than plants inside! plus it gives me something to do outside other than browse facebook on my phone;)
hope your seeds succeed better than mine!
