Documenting Summer

Summer strolls along.  Were there some completely normal mild concussions (Caroline) and also completely normal partially torn Achilles tendons (Jack) along the merry way?  You bet your back righthand Levi's pocket there were.  Again, completely normalAll is well!.  (UPDATE:  Make that a partially torn Achilles tendon with a steaming side of heel fracture.  Terrific.)

But yeah, willingly (!) launching yourself off high/softish objects only to slam suddenly onto much lower/hardish objects is quite the fad around our pad, man.  The folks in the doctor's office laugh at Majesty when she comes in the door.  Because it's the seventh time.  This week.

We can only hope the fad is temporary.  I mean, at this point I'd welcome the return of disco.

Behold inter alia Groupie Dragonflies, The Brazen Misappropriation of Other People's Ginger Ale, Royal Weddings, and (Allegedly) Illegal Fireworks Celebrating Royal Weddings.

First of all, the kids are gorgeous. . .Caroline's curls? Jack's eyes? Seriously. Secondly, that is a lot of emergency room visitation. . .we didn't have to go the ER or doc, but my favorite such incident was when Thad was about two. He decided that the kid sized rocking chair would be the perfect launching station to get him to the couch. Ahem. Have you ever seen a two year old who has a black eye AND a rug burn next to that eye from the same episode? Classic. Enjoy the days.

Thanks. The cuteness is just a veneer for the idiocy.

So yeah, I think there should be an introductory physics-slash-engineering-slash-basic-first-aid course for all 18 month olds.

Problem solved.

The rug burn is more publicly shaming than any other injury. It's the scarlet letter. LOOK WHAT A LUXURIOUS AND SOFT CUSHY SURFACE DID TO ME IN ITS WHITE HOT GORILLA ANGER. BEWARE!
