What were they thinking?

My poor kids, I think they inherited from me... And truth be told, I think I inherited it from my mom.

We run into things...

Like the wall, or the door, or the post that is standing there and has been standing there for the last century. Yea, it isn't moving so you have to. Or not, you can run into it, it just hurts.... A LOT!

For example, there was the time that I took the kids to the tree house museum and when I was walking around with the kids, ran into a post. I was thinking, "Uh, when did that post get there?" Because it was not there a minute ago when I looked. But I ran into it HARD and people looked up... and ... laughed. I would too, in fact I had to, laugh at myself that is because if I didn't I would have cried.

Something else that happens regularly is running into the door jamb. Like I just misjudge how wide the opening is and WHAM! Either that or I misjudge how wide I am.

So yesturday, Jenna went to the bathroom and when she came out, had a HUGE knot on her forehead. I asked her what was up with that and she replied, "I hit the doorknob coming out."

Spencer is notorious for this as well. He's always hitting the column that separates the dining room from the Family Room. A lot of times I will find myself saying, "Spencer, watch..." But never finish because he hits it and it's too late.

So now, it is confirmed that Jayden suffers from this as well. After we said prayers last night in our bedroom, he ran out to go to his room like the other kids did only in the process, he tripped over Daddy's foot, then hit the corner of the desk and the door jamb. UH, Sorry Jayden... you got that from me. I'm just sayin'.

Andrea: Your Mom inherited this trait from her Mom. Your grandmother, over the years, has broken countless toes by "running into things" like the couch, the dining room table, your grandfather's PJ cuff!!

Funny it must come from both sides because Sam banged his head on the door knob this morning! (And it wasn't the first time) It's been a long time since I've been on this thing... I totally missed your Thanksgiving poll. Pie is my favorite, along with rolls, salads and stuffing (not stove-top, my mom's).
