Oopsy Daisy

Retaining wall: 1
Sarahlynn: 0

I was walking along the retaining wall, Ada on the grass beside me, when all of a sudden the end of the wall . . . crumbled.


I . . . followed gravity.


"I gotta mosquito bite. Mommy gotta little scrape!" Ada repeated all afternoon.

Wow - much more gross in full sized picture than on my cell.

Heal Quickly!

But in another year or two, it would've been Ada on the wall, pretending it is the balance beam, and you on the grass. Aren't you glad you were the victim, mama?

Sarahlynn said...

Thanks, Rob. It's scabbing over nicely and I'm much better today.

Flatflo, absolutely! Then again, I don't think Ada's weight would have toppled the blocks. But still, if someone had to get hurt, I'm VERY glad it was me!

(Ada already pretends that every line is a balance beam!)

It's rather pathetic that the one parent-related blog I ever read is this one, but I need to share this:

"Most of my married friends now have children, the rewards of which appear to be exclusively intangible and, like the mysteries of some gnostic sect, incommunicable to outsiders. In fact it seems from the outside as if these people have joined a dubious cult: they claim to be much happier and more fulfilled than ever before, even though they live in conditions of appalling filth and degradation, deprived of the most basic freedoms and dignity, and owe unquestioning obedience to a capricious and demented master."
