Another addition of the good, the bad, and the ugly.....

The good: It's FRIDAY! And this mama has a three day weekend. The rat race of the crazy week is over, and today I managed to get 30 patients evaluated and treated, a Costco trip finished, both of my boys successfully dropped off and picked up from kiddie care, (different kiddie cares mind you, and Talin's first time at good friend Nicole's house, he did great!) and dinner, semi fixed and on the table....kind of...read on...

The Bad: In our evening craziness Forrest decides to draw on his little brother's face and then poke his eye with the marking pen he was using....screaming ensues....

The Ugly: Forrest gets put in a time-out chair. I comfort Talin. Forrest doesn't stay in his time-out chair so I put Talin down in his carseat sitting in the recliner and put Forrest in his crib for timeout. Walking out from Forrest's room I hear a CRASH.
My stomach leaps into my chest, I feel sick. I run over and find Talin face planted, having fallen off the recliner where his not so smart mama had placed him, car seat on top of him, nose spewing out blood.
And if it sounds awful, it WAS! I'll never forget that awful sight.
Yep, my sweet baby boy got his first bloody nose tonight and it was MY fault.
Very Ugly.
Thankfully, all seems to have settled down now, Talin is back to his smiles, and just finished feeding. But the poor little guy cried for 45 minutes straight and Forrest was his usual crazy self into everything you can imagine while I was trying to comfort my baby T. Thankfully Alex came home after about 30 minutes of mayhem to all three of us crying and rescued ALL of us.
Uggh.
Not going to be winning the mama of year award on that move. I think I'll go to bed now, after hugging and kissing my little guy and thanking the heavens for quickly healing babies....

Oh Katie! I am so sorry. That sounds like a tough one! It sounds like the boys will both live and not even have one tiny memory of this "bad" night though. Thank goodness for kid's tiny memories.
I have to relate to this though as I placed D on Mayzie's (bottom of the bunk) bed while dealing with Jonah (in not such a calm way) the other night and he rolled right off as I watching in what seemed like slow motion. He did not bleed, but I procedded to pick him up and then growl (yes, like an animal!) at Jonah with baby D in my arms. Crying all around of course!

And I have to say that I made Addie bleed for the first time when she was just a month or so old. I cut her skin while trimming her nails and she would not stop bleeding. I cried more than she did!

So, it happens. We mess up, but they get over it FAST! Sending much mama love, and wishing I was down the street so we could relax by the fire and let it all roll off.

Enjoy your 3 day weekend!

I don't think ANYONE wins mom of the year! When Kayla was a couple months old she was sitting in her boppy on the couch and I left to use the bathroom and came back to her face first on the ground. She had scooted her way off of the couch. A couple months after that, I left my lap top on top of a TV tray in the living room and went in the kitchen to get something. Crawling Kayla grabbed the tv tray and the LAP TOP smacked her in the cheek. I felt like the worse mom ever too! Thank goodness they don't remember things at that age! :) You are awesome Katie. Keep up the good work
