Falling Season

Category: Adventures in Parenting, Uncategorized – Mommy Rimes – 2:13 pm

I have noticed an over-abundance of little bruises and scrapes on our little punkin’ lately. Of course, we’re not bad parents, but the first thing that pops into my head whenever we’re in public is, “please don’t think we abuse this poor child.” 

Of course, what I say is, “yes, this is our darling little klutz, isn’t she graceful?” 

So where do this purply blue splotches come from?  Oh, let’s see…it could be from climbing onto the kitchen chair and dancing on the seat with excitement. Or it could be from running through our hardwood floored house in socks.  Or perhaps it’s from crawling under the coffee table/bookshelf/bench/couch to retrieve a toy.  It could also come from the walking down the sidewalk while looking up into the trees or watching the boys across the street play hacky-sack or the woman walking her dog.

And each of these times: SMACK! Down goes our little klutz.  Now, if she’s anything like her mommy, she will have these bruises until sometime in her adult life (I still don’t know where that bruise on my elbow came from).

But I still fuss and fret over every new bump, bruise, scrape, and bit lip.


  1. Discovery and curiosity is good for Ella! Years from now she’ll only remember the fun stuff.

  2. Her newest trick is climbing onto any chair and shaking it until it scoots across the floor. She has perfected this move over the weekend. The rocking chair is her favorite. She climbs onto it and then rocks like mad. It’s terribly funny to watch, but don’t tell her that.

  3. well at least she isn’t crawling INTO cabinets, bookshelves, or anything else like her mom did ;)

  4. she can’t crawl into cabinets because they are all baby proofed. The bookshelves are another story. She made it up two shelves and started pulling down books left and right.
    we definitely have a monkey on our hands.
