Later that evening I swept and hosed down the deck. Our construction crew is finished with their part and they left our deck totally gross. So Adie was having fun using the broom as I was rinsing off the deck. I look over to see her fall backwards.. completely landing on her head... feet totally pointing up. Ouch. Lots of tears again.
Then on Saturday we went to daddy's JV game and I was taking pictures of her in her new shirt to send to aunt Denise because she made it for her. (This is the best one I could get because Adie was infatuated with the cheerleaders.) I look down to put my camera back in the bag and look up to watch Adie in slow motion tip backwards and fall again on her head. As you can see.. we are at the bottom of the bleachers so all the FHS fans got to see the head-falling-on-the-cement go down.
Then yesterday cousin Chloe and aunt Liz and us went to the pool while daddy and uncle Eric roofed our roof. Adie was sitting on the side of the pool and had been jumping in and I would catch her. ADD me looked down and saw a big beetle swimming in the pool and since beetles gross me out I tried to catch it to throw it over the pool. As I was looking down Adie Grace decided to jump in the pool again. Only to find herself completly submerged because her beetle-hater mommy didn't catch her. She was madder than a hornet but I guess she held her breathe because she wasn't choking or coughing or anything.
So.. lessons learned... I am no longer mother of the year in because I allow my almost 16 month old to stand on chairs and fall to get fat lips, allow the SAME adorable baby to sweep my wet deck and fall on her head, allow the SAME baby girl to sit on a bleacher while her mommy shoots adorable pictures of her new shirt and lets her fall head first on the cement, AND I don't catch my baby in a pool for fear that instead a beetle will attach itself to her cute swimsuit... instead she plummets underwater and gets EXTREMELY mad at me for not catching her. Can't say I don't blame her.
Oh, and another lessoned learned.. don't let me watch your own children!
