Not Me Monday/ Not My Child Monday

Monday, September 28, 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 catch my daughter just in the nick of time, before she put our TV remote controls in the toilet!

I did not have to stick my hand down the toilet bowl just to make sure Cayleigh-Grace did not drop a wooden block down it, and I did not see the wooden block behind the toilet bowl after digging around in the water for it. Yuck!

We did not find a wonderful home for Jackson a couple of weeks ago, and I did not get a wonderful report from the new owners saying how well he is doing now.

We did not spend a wonderful and relaxing weekend doing absolutely nothing and just enjoying each others company this weekend, and I am not going to miss these wonderful weekends terribly once Kiale leaves for basic training in a month and a half.

Colin did not have to clean his and Kiale's room that they share by himself twice this past week because he refused to help Kiale clean it.

Kiale did not make a goal this weekend to climb every tree in our yard and he did not get eaten up by mosquitoes in the process.

Cayleigh-Grace did not finally say dada again to KS, she has not refrained from saying that for a couple of months now, and KS was not thrilled to hear her say it when he got home last night.

Aw, both our babies have eye boo-boos. The remote story made me laugh. Looks like my wife loved it too :) ^^^

I wonder what the fascination is with kids and remotes? Savi loves all of ours. We apparently love to change the channels and find the fuzzy, no reception ones.

Do any of your kids love to mess with the cable boxes? I swear Savi could mess with ours for 30 minutes changing channels and messing with settings.

This is a response to the question you left on New Girl on Post:

Do not go into the whole Army experience with the misconception that you will have any say at all as to where you will live and that it will be one big vacation for you. There are very few postings overseas and you will live where the Army sees fit. I have a feeling it's going to be a rude awakening for you.....

My husband and I realize fully that we will have absolutely NO say in where we will get stationed. My entire family has been military except for my parents. So we know exactly what we are getting ourselves into. Thanks.

Hi! Thanks for the comment. My husband leaves for basic at Ft. Leonardwood in MO Nov 3. It's nice to meet you.

And, just a suggestion, you might want to disable anonymous commenting for your blog. Anonymous commenters seem to flock to and enjoy harassing milwife bloggers in particular.

Honestly, we don't know exactly how long he will be gone. After BCT, he is going to OCS, and depending on what branch assignment he gets there....he wants Infantry, and if he does get it, that would mean something like an additional 4 months of branch training, plus 3 months of Ranger school, plus 3 weeks of honestly, I have no idea, other than it won't be over any earlier than the end of next summer. :( But such is the life, right?
