I start to complain when there's no rain.

I have a very dramatic bruise on the arch of my foot because yesterday as I stepped over the gate in the doorway out of the living room, I stepped right on one of Liam's stacking cups. 50% of my weight went down my leg and into my foot and smooshed with my toes into the bowl of an itty-bitty plastic cup. My arch was lucky to catch the other 50% on the edge of the cup.

I was holding Liam and he was sleeping when this happened. I did a really good job of not screaming in pain or spitting the not-so-nice "MOTHERF****R!" or dropping him. I did knock down the gate though.

I know, I am full of piss and vinegar lately. I do like the rain, really. I love it- but I feel like a raincloud nowadays, and not in a good way.

Those darn gates + small toys...I have almost killed myself numerous times.

Oh that smarts!!! I hate that, and it seems to happen at least once a week around here with three boys worth of toys lying around, especially those darn spikey dinosaurs.

I hate when that happens! I always look around and make sure nobody saw me. I actually fell down a few stairs the other day while holding Dylan. And there was nothing for me to trip over, I'm just that clumsy (sp?) At least Dylan had a good time with it, he laughed at me!

lol, piss and vinegar... that is one of my Mom's phrases!

Sorry about your foot :(
