Didn’t Break

I am accident-prone.  Ok, not really.  I’m a klutz.  Yep, that’s me.  Klutz.  I have felt sorry for my children on several occasions for having to be near me.  I spilled a drink on one of my children before in a restaurant . . ok, that happened on more than one occasion.  I’ve dropped their food on the floor.  I’ve fallen stepped on their toys and broken them.

Today, I accidentally stepped on my son’s finger on his field trip.  Later, I reached for him and my finger went somewhere close to his eye.  He said I poked his eye, but I think I got the corner of it.  It didn’t turn red or water a lot.  Whew!

Back at the school he earned extra recess time and for some reason wanted me to come with him to play basketball.  I don’t even know who tripped who, but he’s smaller and went down first.  I almost fell on top of him, but got over him before I actually fell completely to the ground.  Yay!  I didn’t crush my child!  Hooray!

Ugh, tonight I am thankful that the kids are tough!  And I am thankful that I didn’t crush my child!  (Believe it or not, that is not the first time that I’ve been thankful for these things!  Klutziness is not something that can be fixed by reading a parenting magazine or a self-help magazine or walking with a book on your head or a number of other things that have been suggested to me over the years!!)
