Catastrophes Avoided

Yesterday the kids had their pictures taken. We were way over due for it! I can finally have a new picture of my babies hanging in the dining room. The 8x10 currently in that frame is an old one. Little Dude is barely a year old, which would make GG almost 5. They are now almost 5 and 8.

I don't know how but we averted any major catastrophes pre-picture taking. Who in their right mind thought it would be a good idea to have swivel bar stool chairs in the waiting room?! Kids are drawn to those light a fly is to a lamp! And of course kids can't just sit on them. They have to see who can spin faster, which leads to dizziness, which leads to mom having a panic attack and praying that neither falls and smacks their head off the table. GG most like would have hit the back of her head. That's not good, but can be hidden. Little Dude would have hit smack dab in the middle of his face. Because that's how he is.

While disasters pre-pictures were avoided, post-picture is another story! I realized last night that we were lacking in the food department. Little Dude wanted to come to the store with me so he could play in the "classroom", as he calls it. It's the baby sitting room - best thing invented. Ever!!!

I had asked GG to return the step stool to the kitchen. She picked it up as Little Dude was walking towards the front door. The corner of the stool caught him right below his eyebrow! I know it hurt from the sound of his cry, but he's ok. He does however have a lovely mark to show for it.


Steelers helmet

Why won't anyone let me buy him a helmet?!? Every year I see this at Target. We could just pretend he loves football and refuses to take it off.










On a side note, my MIL has the pictures and as soon as I get my share, I will post some pics on here. She paid for them, so I guess it's only fair she gets first dibs on what she needs.


<--- Awesome blog! Check it out!


Until next time....

I can't believe there was an accident, but very good that it happened after the photos were taken.

That is too funny my youngest just ran his eye into the corner of the coffee table (not the funny part) but we always say that boy needs a helmet he has the worst balance like me .. hehe

Oh yes my boys love the playroom. I always say we get hurt the day before pictures never fails!
