This did not Happen to Me

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.

Note: All of the incidents about to be mentioned happened within about 15 minutes of each other.

It was not me, who had to tell my five year old son several times while making an appointment at the physiotherapist not to touch the exercise balls. Not just don't touch, but don't bounce on, roll around on, toss around the room, or kick around the office. No, this wouldn't be me!!

It was not me, who then went into the convenience store to use the bank machine, and while waiting in line to use the machine, it was not me who had to tell my five year old son to not try on hats, pick up stuffed animals, roll toy cars across the floor, or try out every pen in the display. No, that wouldn't be me either!!

Then, it wouldn't be me that told that five year old boy to try to distract him from all the fore mentioned items that he could pick out a chocolate bar for himself and his sister. No that was not me, I would not use bribery when all else fails!!

It was not me, that while waiting for the boy to come to the counter to pay for the items he had picked out, got upset at him for going back to the fore mentioned items again. It was not me who took the chocolate bars and put them back and told the boy we were leaving the store without them, because he could not listen to me. No, I wouldn't lose patience like that.

It was not me, who had a crying and whining five year old boy follow me from the store. The boy was not now screaming 'I am not going anywhere with you.' The boy was not refusing to get in the car. I did not get in the car thinking he would follow. It wasn't me who looked out the window at him, and he seeing this did not attach himself to a streetlight pole. It was not my five year old boy who wouldn't let go of the pole, while still crying and screaming 'I am not going anywhere with you.' People passing by were not stopping to watch this now!

It was not me, who had to pry that boy from the pole, in the struggle it didn't cause me to break my fingernails against the cold hard pole. It wasn't me who had to roll the boy into the van, because he was resisting with all his might. No it wasn't me that was watching to see if the police were coming after someone called about a little boy being abducted at the convenience store!!

And it wasn't that five year old boy who sobbed looking out the window for several minutes before falling asleep from pure exhaustion, and it wasn't that boy who didn't remember a thing about this incident when he woke up!!

Nope, these things would not happen to me.

The Blonde Duck said...

blueviolet said...

The poor little thing had a meltdown. I'm glad it all ended with his falling asleep and forgetting about it. :)

Lori said...

oh joy! bet you loved that, at least he took a nap at the end to get over it and gave you a bit to re-group too

ASHLEY said...

Wow, I bet you were thinking that people were going to call the police.....poor little guy!!

Mighty M said...

Oh, this post brings me a much needed sigh of relief because my 3 year old daughter does a lot of this and it's so nice to know I'm not alone in my frustrations! Or my oh so occasional bribery!

Debbie said...

All of those things sound too interesting to a five year old boy!

Jacki said...

You mean they don't magically grow out of their tantrums when they turn 5??

Upstatemomof3 said...

Oh my!!! That certainly would have been a difficult fifteen minutes. I am so glad that it did not happen to you. :)

jen@odbt said...

I've never used bribes to get good behavior...not me! You gotta do what you gotta do. Thank goodness for the nap.

Laurie in Ca. said...

Oh Pam,

After a day like this, I hope you got a nap too!! Meltdowns are so unpredictable and once they get started, they take on a life of their own. ~sigh~
I am so glad I never had this happen with my twins in public:)!! I hope you have a wonderful Monday my sweet sister. You have earned it.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

Jill (Sneaky Momma) said...

Oh, Pam, these are hilarious! I'm sure they aren't at all funny to you, though. I think I would have gone home, put on a kids movie and been DONE for the day after that. Sorry about your nails. :(

Sarah said...

On My! What a day!
I like the National Follow Me month button~ I think I need that one as well!

The Lee Family said...

Oh, I can relate! You have my sympathies.

Kristina P. said...

Maybe I need to rethink that whole loving older kids thing.

Cascia said...

Oh my gosh! It sounds like you had your hands full this past weekend! I know what it is like to have to deal with a stubborn child who doesn't listen. I think I would have done the same thing. I hope he behaves better for you next time you go to the store.

Meredith said...

Oh my word!!!! I'm so sorry! Been there, done that. Aren't you so glad that they forget so easily? He'll love to hear that story when he gets older!

Melissa said...

Oh my goodness! What a day! I hope your day got better after the nap and I hope you will be able to look back and laugh at this later.

Jenn(ifer) said...

Oh man! LOL I know its not funny...but I can SOOOO sympathize with you on this. LoL

Heather, aka Jake's Mommy said...

Aww, this is a glimpse of like EVERY outing with my 3 year old. Last weekend he shot off like a dart through the aisles of Wal-Mart and I had to chase him from one end of the store to the other. He kept yelling, "No, Mommmmy!" At one point in time, a lady asked me "is that your kid?" ... I was mortified. And, sure the police were going to arrest me and send my son to child services before they figured out the grave mistake that he really is my awful kid.

So, I totally understand what did not happen up there. Happy Monday, Pam!

And I bet it wasn't you who felt like a total lunatic mom.

~hippo hugs~

Bee and Rose said...

Oh Pammy! That was so sad and funny all at the same time! I know how you feel:) My daughter does NOT do this either...lol!!! Sorry about your broken nails!

Mandy and Jack said...

That's so funny!! Sorry about all the trouble you had with him!

Yaya said...

Yes, true, this did make me laugh, but that was at 5:54am....now it's 8:12pm...I need more laughs!

Ter said...

wow, it's a good thing none of that happened to you! ;)

Kimber said...

OMGoodness. I have NEVER had anything like that happen to me before either. Thankfully they outgrow all that someday (I think).
