Not Me Monday: The Mother's Day Edition


I just got a Wii balance board with Wii Fit Plus on Saturday! I did not stay up until the wee hours of Mother's day trying it out while dear hubby put the finishing touches on a German chocolate cake. We know we are much too old to function on so little sleep, especially when we are expected to get 4 rambunctious children ready for church the next morning.

And I did not wake the next morning with stiff muscles and my ego still smarting from finding out I have a Wii fitness age of...wait for it...55.

I did not have to remove Emma from the cry room during Mass because she was screeching so loudly my right ear was temporarily deaf and my left ear was ringing. And I definitely did not set her loose outside in the graveyard cemetery surrounding the church. Or watch as she tried to climb gravestones in her Easter dress.

We did not call for reservations at the restaurant we planned to go to at 4:30...only to find out that the earliest reservation was for 6:30. And that the current wait was 45 minutes. We did not arrive for our reservation only to find out that the wait would still be 45 minutes. But we did get seated earlier than expected!

We did not arrive home after 8 with 4 super hyper kiddos literally running around the furniture and take forever to get them to bed, only to find it was no longer Mother's Day when we turned in ourselves.

There's no such thing as the perfect day...would we remember those moments so well if they were all perfect anyway?

Be sure to head over to MckMama's new and improved blog at My Charming Kids and see what everybody else is not doing.

  1. Haha! I know how that is! I have a love/hate relationship with my Wii. It's an evil little thing, but yet, I love it, too. And the audacity it has to make your little Mii FAT! The GALL!

    Have your kids do the Birdseye Bullseye game! It's hilarious!

  2. Actually, I think my board is defective...it says I'm lighter than I thought, about 10 pounds lighter. But as I don't have a working scale to check it against, who am I to argue (my Mii is still thin!). My fitness age is due to my lack of balance. I hope I never have to walk across a tightrope to save my life (wink).
