It’s Going to Be A {Long} Day….

November 15, 2008

This is one of those things that I just cringe when I hear.

I was upstairs drying my hair, the Little One was still in her crib and the Big One decided she was thirsty.

Next thing I hear is “UH-OH! I’m all WET!”

Apparently she filled her cup too full and had some challenges when trying to put the lid on her favorite Dora sippy cup. She then came upstairs waving the soaked arm like it was gravely injured.

“Wook, mommy, I’m all wet. I was just tryin’ to put the wid on and it spiwwed all over me and the floor. But I walked really slow and careful so I didn’t fall in the water. Cause the tile gets reawwy swipery when it’s wet and I didn’t want to fall.”

At least she has finally learned that the tile floor is just like black ice, you can’t see the danger, but once you hit, you are done for. Kind of like my first time driving in the snow in Washington DC on the Beltway during rush hour. I learned very quickly that my little pick-up truck and California driving skills were going to be put to the test. Thank God my angels were with me that day when I slid across three lanes of the beltway and into the median. Somehow the car behind me slid to the right and I slid to the left while everyone else magically disappeared.

    It’s been a real bang-up week for you, your girls and spill-proof/sippy containers!

    Ugh! Well, at least she didn’t fall and hit her head. (And scary about your accident!!)

    This is true, she was careful!
    {And yes it was very scary. It was 6 years ago, yet I vividly remember every detail.}

    I remember the spin out! I felt very sorry for you! (forgive me, but the mental picture is still a little funny – ONLY because you werent hurt!)

    Yeah, the mental picture gave me the giggles.
