Oh Monday!

You started out with a bang! After a Bible study, I took the dog outside for his morning duties and while watering the plants baby and husband came out to join. She was in a super mood and marched around the entire pond with us, approximately 1/3 mile and normally we use a wagon or stroller but today she power walked.

Back inside I got ready for work until it dawned on me at 8:50 that baby had a doctor's appointment at 9:15! Quick change the baby and run out the door, I said to husband. Once they were gone I finished getting ready. At 9:30 he called to say he had forgotten his wallet so instead of going to work, I went the other direction to the doctor's office.

Baby was in a wild mood and couldn't sit still, somehow do to a scheduling misunderstanding they rerouted us to an appointment time after 10 so I took her into the hallway to play while 2nd parent stayed inside. She proceeded to crawl up 2 flights of stairs, climb benches and walls, then a full run down the hallway which lead to falling 3 times as shoes came flying off. Husband came out to find me struggling to reattach shoes to a screaming raging baby who just wanted to be put down to run run run.

We switched and while inside I heard the distinct noises of baby running and falling again. He comes back to announce she ran so fast she tripped and fell on her head and there was a carpet burn on her forehead.

I don't know what happened in that power walk this morning but it woke up a wild women! The sad thing is after all the falling, bruised knees and forehead she had to go get a 2nd H1N1 shot!
