What do you get

When you mix a 9 month old baby who has taken to pulling himself up on furniture and a coffee table with sharp edges??? An ugy scratch & bruise on a very beautiful face :( Just put Marc and I in the "Parents who suck" category this weekend. Firt I let him pull himself up on the table from which he fell and zonked his eye on the table. Big lump over his eye (in his eyebrow so you really couldn't see it). Pull out the boo boo bunny (thanks Aunt Jodi!) and make all better. Later Marc is watching him crawl around. He pulls himelf up at the same point but managed to hit the corner and scratch & bruise himself. Needless to say, we took a ride over to Target and got some padding for the table.


  1. Isn't it funny how you look so forward to these incredible milestones; but now you end up cringing and pouncing every time they move.

    My favorite was when my son reached the height when he could no longer walk freely under the tables or counters. "Watch your head!" became his 2nd, 3rd and 4th words after LOOKOUT!

  2. Oh, just wait until he starts trying to WALK on his own! The bruises will come! Oh yes, they will come!!

    This is so funny to read, did you ever think you would get to the point that you would have to put padding on the coffee table!!!

    Isn't motherhood wonderful!!!

    Enjoy every minute of it!

  4. Aw, poor Dylan. The good thing is it's nothing too serious.

    Thinks for the "heads up"-- off to Target I go!

    Big hugs to Dylan.
