Just like Mommy......

ACCIDENT PRONE!
Ezra got it from me......I'm ALWAYS hurting myself one way or another.
EZRA'S LATEST ACCIDENTS..........Poor Ezra is trying to stand like a big boy but almost every time he falls on his head with a THUD! His poor head is covered in bruises. What can I do? I can't keep him down....how will he learn? Maybe a helmet? I guess this could be considered "growing pains" I'm not sure who is hurt more Ezra or my heart. This is one phase of life I hope passes soon!!!! On to the next accident...... Well I am apart of a little sewing club. Just a few moms from church and a bunch of kids. Well we were making something that required an iron. All of the older children knew not to get close to the ironing board and they didn't....that we know of. The little ones were crawling around and playing not close to the ironing board at all. Then we hear it...that HORRIBLE heart wrenching scream! Somehow the iron was on the floor and Ezra's hand was on it. We never heard the iron hit the floor and if you have ever droped one you know they make a big thud. There were five moms all in that room, myself and one other mom were within three feet of the iron. We are all puzzled! How did the iron get on the floor????....I guess we will never know! Ezra has some blisters on he hand. Thank goodness Ezra's burn is not as bad as it could have been!!! I have some special medicated cream and he wears a glove to keep the cream on and infection out. By the way his glove is pink (thanks Kacey!) he looks like Micheal Jackson. I've got to get a picture because I guess someday this will be something dare I say funny. Seeing your child in pain is the most HORRIBLE part about being a mother. I know it will happen again and I just can't stand it!!! Ezra is doing really well, what a trooper!!! The crazy thing is that right before this happened all the moms were taking about all the accidents that their kids have had. I was thinking to myself...wow I guess I'm getting off lucky with a few bruises. Well be careful what you think and NEVER...EVER let your kids in a room with a hot iron!!!!

Poor little guy!! It is terrible when your kid gets hurt... It never gets better (the feeling in your heart)! The good news is that with each kid you learn to roll with the punches a bit more!!

My little girl Ivy just had her finger slammed in the door by a cousin a few weeks ago, and it was down-right traumatic - not just for her! It was really the first major owie she's had and we were worried her finger had been broken. I count myself REALLY lucky because she is 3 and that was the first major one!

oh poor boy! i am glad it is wasn't worse. i hate the bumps and bruises from trying to learn how to stand and walk. i felt like the worse mother and was always afraid people would think i abused my child. i would like to say it gets better but ruthie is still getting bumps, bruises, and scabs.

How is it that I have witnessed both Ezra's blister wound and Ivy's door-slamming incident? I'm beginning to think I'm bad luck!
