"Not Me" Monday on a Tuesday

Posted by Alicia Overby on 6th Feb 2018

Please, come one, come all and join the festivities of "Not Me" Monday! Join us, by the hundreds, in our effort to put to rest the taboo things we have done in the past week.

Oh how my home was peaceful and quiet this week. So I know that you will NOT find this list to be entertaining....but I guess I'll try anyhow!

This week was incredibly warm for a mid February week. So while playing out of doors I did NOT decide to find ways to set Pearl down in the snow so that I could free up my hands. One of those options most certainly was NOT sticking her short, chubby legs into the hard surface of the snow to create a "stand" for her.

Pearl absolutely loved it! She did NOT decide after just moments that she was not so happy with this position!

While a few other children were over to play this week, I did NOT allow them all (including the baby) to play unsupervised downstairs. Because of course someone would get injured...so when that someone was Finn I was NOT surprised to hear his "blood cry". Upon my arrival downstairs I proceeded to look him over. When I got to his teeth, I did NOT see that he had jammed his upper right tooth up into his gums about 1/2 inch. I then did NOT proceed to grasp that tooth and feel if it was loose only to have it crack back into place....however remaining very loose! Major injuries like this could NOT occur since I am always in attendance during play sessions including guests!

I absolutely do NOT still have my Christmas tree up! I am not as pathetic as to hold on to the Christmas "feeling" well into February, risking the inability to miss Valentines decor! I would NOT do that...I treat all holidays equally and do NOT favor one over another.

While playing out doors with the entire family on Saturday, taking many photos, and having many photos taken, my husband did NOT annoy me. He did NOT decide to give me a lesson by shooting photo after photo of me repeatedly until I "felt like our children"; this resulted in a number of meaningless photos of moi!

And that's it for me now! It would serve me well to keep a list going of my "not me's"...maybe next time.

Alicia is wife, mother, and creator of Baby Elephant Ears. Baby Elephant Ears was created out of parental concern, not financial desire. In 2005, when their second child was an infant, he cried all the time and just couldn't seem to get comfortable.

After seeking advice and suggestion from the medical community and alternative medicine, they eventually ended up in the chiropractors office where their baby was successfully treated for a subluxation, discomfort most likely the result of the strain during labor, which was now being exacerbated by the normal lack of infant neck strength. Only proper neck, head, and back alignment would offer him relief. When they couldn't find a product to give their baby the necessary support, Alicia took matters into her own hands and crafted her own infant support pillow. The first Baby Elephant Ears was born!
