Not Me Monday...

I do not plant my toddler in her high chair every morning with a poptart and a movie so that I can go back to bed for 20 minutes while the newborn is still sleeping.  I definitely do not rank 20 minutes of sleep as more important than letting my daughter watch cartoons every morning.  Not me!

I did not find my toddler hiding underneath her bed the other day with a pillow and some books avoiding a certain crying newborn.  I did not seriously also contemplate crawling under there with her.  Not me!

I definitely have not already labeled my 3 week old newborn as high maintenance.  Not me!  Lucky for him he's such a cutie!  ;) 

I do not go around in my pajamas all day long.  And when I finally do take a shower, I definitely do not put another set of pajamas on.  Hey!  At least they are clean!  ;) 

I did not go through drive-thru at Starbuck's to buy just a gift card.  I also did not judge the cashier/barista when he suggested that I come in and pick out the card that I wanted.  I mean, sheesh, can't they see through the intercom system that I am a mother of 2 and it would be more work than it's worth to unbuckle them both and take them into the cafe?! 

I did not find out this last week that I owed the Roanoke Library $39 in late charges.  I also did not send my husband in to find out how much it was because I was embarrassed.  I did not avoid the library for 4 years all because I did not return 2 books.  (By the way, fortunately, by returning 2 said books, they lowered my fee considerably... wow.  I'm such a loser!  I mean, who racks up $39 in late charges... Not me!)

I also am not so incredibly excited about my toddler starting preschool in September that I am counting down the days.  And the reason that I am so excited is not because I am counting on taking a nap during those two hours!  Not me!

Our Newest Addition...

After a 40 weeks of a lot of "mild" complaining, napping, eating, crying, throwing up, sleepness nights, and trips to the bathroom, the Dickinson family was very happy to welcome the newest and wonderful addition to our family:

Carter David Dickinson

Carter was born after 14 hours of labor (but only 20 min of pushing... yay!) at 10:32 pm on July 26, 2010.  He was a whopping 8lbs 2oz and 22 inches long. 


Welcome to the family baby boy!  We are so excited you are finally here!
