Ramblings: This is why...




This is why you should listen to your mother when she says "Don't stand up in your chair." And if you don't listen, then you will fall and you will run around gurgling and spewing blood from your nose and mouth all over your new shirt until your mom rips it off of you so it doesn't get stained. 

Avery was so funny during the whole episode. I didn't see the actual fall because I was at the stove cooking, so Avery had to fill me in. He led me around the kitchen following Aidan's blood trail and then immediately dropped to the ground and started trying to clean it up. (Maybe he is my child after all.) We looked like we had been filming our very own episode of CSI.  

This actually happened the night of our 80 degree zoo day Thursday of last week, hence the shorts and polos. Today is literally freezing and I think they will probably cancel school tomorrow because they're expecting about 1/4" of ice by morning. I'm gearing up for a houseful of bored kids--it's a good thing I beefed up my Diet Coke supply yesterday. Do you think they'd notice if I slipped a little NyQuil in their fruity pebbles tomorrow morning? Not alot, just enough to take the edge off...

I worry they'll come to my house and search with that little blacklight thing. No telling how much blood they'd find around the house. I'm glad you were able to document these things. Now when Harrison asks, "Why?", I can show him.

Oh my goodness! He looks like he has big scratches on his cheeks. I thought I had a run-in with a dog. His poor pitiful pouty face.

When I saw the first picture I thought maybe he had gotten into the cupboard where you hide the red food dye. "Please...don't let that be blood!" He looks like he got into it with a wild cat and the cat came out on top. Avery was obviously in shock. "Must clean up the blood before mom sees it." He probably wanted to spare Aiden more bloodshed. You know..."Mommy Dearest" and all. Just kidding! :) Maybe he learned a big lesson for a little price.

but you KNOW what i'm most proud of, dont' you? i love that you grabbed your camera and documented everything...blood pools and all. you're definitely learning a little from me...not everything...but definitely a little.

Thanks for the laugh. I keep trying to reassure Jason that we are not failing as parents just because our kids are wild animals. It is actually just reassurance that they are normal.
