    As long as we’re confessing…..

    There was the time my oldest daughter (then seven) came into my room very early one morning complaining she was itchy and couldn’t sleep. I let her crawl under the covers at the foot of the bed and then made her leave because she would stop moving. A few hours later I awoke and found her covered in red blotches. That was the day I found out she was allergic to Penicillin. That could have been a whole lot worse!!!

    There was the time my youngest daughter (then 9) fell off her bike and kept complaining her wrist hurt. She’s a complainer by nature so I no longer jump. After a night of refusing to bend it I took her to the doctor, who ordered an x-ray, who confirmed she had a fracture. Which gave my daughter the opportunity to say….in front of her pediatrician and the nurse, “See, I told you so. And you wouldn’t listen.” Then I did listen, for the sirens on the bad parent vehicle that would transport me to mommy jail.

    What about all the times I’ve yelled, “If you want to cry, I’ll give you something to cry about!” As a child I’d heard that so much I swore the words would never cross my lips. And yet they did….and occasionally still do.

    We should write a book!!!!
