Flashback Friday

I can't say how many times we used to rewind this part.. Slider was always my favorite..

Peace and Quiet

Let me start out by saying that Dalton dislikes storms..
He's not scared of the rain.. or even of the is the thunder.
It petrifies my son. He does get it honestly.. I have been scared of bad storms my whole life. He doesn't know that..because I try to be brave for him. (LOL)

Anyway, so the other night we had on heck of a storm. Everytime it would thunder he would drop whatever he was doing and dive onto my lap or mamaw's lap (depending on who was closest). Mom had been trying to talk to him the past few storms about thunder. She told him that when it thundered it was only God clapping his hands. So this is the conversation post lap dive

Dalton: Mommy, I don't like thunder.
Me: Oh I know honey but its nothing to be scared of.. remember what Mam told you? (Mam is his nickname for mamaw).
Dalton: Yeah.. it is just God clapping his hands.
Me: Thats right.. and clapping our hands isn't scary is it?
Dalton: No, Mommy but its loud. I don't like it when its loud. I think God should stop clapping His hands and go to His room and lay down. I need some peace and quiet.

Little man was just so serious.. it was all I could do not to bust out laughing!

Before it is mentioned..

Yes.. I know I did a Not me Monday post on Saturday..but I just wanted to.. :-p

Not Me Monday!

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 have NOT been staying up until daylight hours multiple days this week.. and IF I would not be because I was up too late watching "Big Brother After Dark" on Showtime.. Nope not me!

*I am NOT addicted to watching Big Brother on CBS.. I wouldn't watch any reality shows.. I have better things to do..and if I did..then I totally wouldn't be talking about the castmates (or to the TV for that matter) like I actually knew them! Nope NOT me!

*My son did NOT call me "Probie" the other day ( and yesterday and probably today too) ala NCIS..No..I never watch that show..and my son does not know all the main characters names.. Nope not me (him)!

*Dalton and I don't just randomly break out in song... never.. My life is so not a musical! Nope not us! But if we DID sing.. it wouldn't be the Hannah Montana theme song or "Who's your Daddy" by Toby Keith.

*I didn't let my wonderful child stay up until midnight last night because I didn't feel like fighting about bedtime..Nope, we keep strict bedtimes around here! But if he did.. it might be because we slept in.. lol

*I am NOT addicted to FarmTown and FarmVille on Facebook since a friend recently explained it to me.... NEVER! I don't have an addictive personality..Nope NOT ME

* Dalton and I did NOT spend over 2 hours at McKay's Used Books today.. and we did NOT leave with a bag full of books for us both.. Nope..not us!

*I have NOT already read one of the said books that I got yesterday. I am much more productive than that!!

* I did NOT watch CSPAN the other morning..and actually enjoy it! Nope not me!!

I'm going to stop there..but trust me.. there is so much more I could list!
