On the joy of motherhood

Is it September yet?

  • Injury sustained Wed., July 11:Cause: failed landing of a board slide at the skate park.
  • Injury sustained Thu., July 12:Cause: bailed off his skateboard trying to land a nine-step jump at the skate park (for the record, he landed it several times first; this was from his fourth or fifth attempt).
  • Injuries sustained Tue., July 17:Cause: a game of man hunt involving 10pm darkness, gravel and a pothole.
  • Injury sustained Sun., July 22:Cause: street skating.

In order to lighten the mood and ease the stinging of washing fresh wounds, I've been distracting AC with the camera, promising a special flick'r set of just his busted up self.

'Cause I hear that's what all the good moms do.

I think it was the injury on the hand that got me. Eeep! That looks so horrible!

Ow! The memories of my bike spill are still fresh in my mind, so I really feel the pain (probably more so than your son!) of looking at these photos. Ouch! Feel better soon.

Oh my gosh. That kid wouldn't leave my sight without being completely ensconced in bubble wrap. See, this is why I don't have kids. I freak out when the dog has a hot spot.

Man, those take me back :-D Knowing him, he wears them like badges of honor.

Ah to be young and somehow oblivious to why you should be walking with a limp again...
