Not Me, I did NOT do that on Ethan's Birthday!!

It's Monday....but that's ok, because this is a short work week...and who doesn't love a short work week :)!! Oh and of course, Monday means "Not Me Monday" at MckMama's!! This week, I'm going to tell you about all of the things I did not do at Ethan's birthday celebration!!



I did not make everyone (hostess, waitress, manager, other patrons etc..) at Red "Lobster" refer to it as Red "Chicken" because Angie does not like Red "Lobster"



I did not stop the "fun" from beginning until I got a good picture of all of us together... And that picture was not taken by the waitress who had other tables to tend to, and it was not taken a few times until I got just the right one (if it was, I probably would've gotten frustrated because i couldn't get all the kids to look in the right direction at the right time)



I did not make Angie sing her cute little songs over and over again to anyone and everyone who came to the table making a stink about how cute she was!! (if I did do that, she would've eaten up every bit of it)

I did not have to take...uhhh....drag Joseph to the bathroom and give him a pinch on his rear because he simulated a head-butt at me while I was scolding him. If I would've done that it would've been because after I first tried to spank him, he looked at me and laughed because he had thick jeans on.
I did not pretend like I didn't see him try to play the sympathy card for the rest of dinner, giving me the puppy dog eyes and saying that he could barely walk because he was in so much pain (honestly you guys, I barely "did not" pinch him....)
I did not enjoy the movie "BOLT" just as much (if not more) as the kids...and I did not get teary-eyed at some of the "sad/lonely dog" scenes in the movie.
I did not let Ethan stay up until 1:30am trying to put together his new Lego toy....
I did not get frustrated trying to put together the new art easel that Ethan got from Gamps & Grama. I did not think to myself, why would they design this so difficult to piece together--it's an easel, for goodness sake!!!
There you have it....all of the things I did not do during Ethan's night out!! Actually you all, we really did have a good time... Ethan ate the dinner he wanted, saw the movie he was sooo excited to see and got all the gifts that he wanted; and it makes me happy to see him happy!!

Hi there. Happy Bday to your littly guy! My son is also loving the Indiana Jones lego products. They're all over the living room. Re: Twilight - I feel the movie captured a lot of the book as much as it could in 2 hours. The acting was mostly good, except in just a few places. I think you will enjoy it enough and since your son wants to see it........
