Not Me or My Child Monday!

Monday, August 10, 2009


Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did not start having second thoughts about Kiale joining the Army when I dropped him off at the hotel last night for his physical this morning.

I am not in complete denial about how long Kiale will be leaving us for (40 weeks+) when he joins the army... I would not be the type of person who lives by the "I'll deal with it when it gets here" motto.

I am not extremely proud of my husband for joining the Army today, he is going into active duty.



I did not have to argue with Little Kiale about why he cannot be home-schooled right now, and the have to convince him to go back to his school at the end of this month.

I do not have one child that wants to be home-schooled and one child that wants to attend school, and those two boys would not proceed to argue about where they will be going to school. Thankfully at the end of the day they were both excited to be going back to their school that they attended last year.

My daughter did not finally learn how to walk really well and she is not walking everywhere now. Goodbye sweet baby crawls!!! You will be very missed.


My daughter did not scarf down 2 pieces of cake at my Dad's birthday party. She is not going to be a blast to watch during her birthday party next month. (do you see her cute shoes?!! I bought them before I even found out she was in fact a she in my womb!!)


Little Kiale did not accidentally hit Colin in the eye with a plastic brush which did not result in giving Colin his first (of many I am sure) black eye.

Awww, your little girl is adorable! Interesting that one of your kiddos wants to be home schooled and one doesn't. I'm sure that can be tough to explain. I pray you and your family adjust to your husband being in the military.

My little guy is starting to walk right now too! It is exciting, but kind of sad too! Good luck to you and your hubby on his new job with the army!

Wandered in from the McMamma's site too. Thanks for you husband (AND YOU!) for proudly serving. I'll keep you in our prayers. We are finishing our own deployment. You will make it through. The first 6 weeks and last 6 weeks are the hardest, just try to take it a little bit at a time.
