Soggy Monday + Award.

“The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.”  Robert Burns

      Well, my plans to have a picnic most certainly didn’t come to fruition. I always have a plan B as implied by that quote so the weekend was not ruined.  Why not a picnic you ask? Well, Saturday was still too hot and it has been raining nonstop since yesterday. Lesson learned: do not believe your meteorologist:-). Oh, i almost forgot, baby Zion had his first bad accident on Friday. Yep, he fell and busted his lip(it seems as if his top teeth dug into his bottom lip and it was not pretty). There was blood everywhere(gory-sorry) and somehow i held it together long enough to “doctor him up.” I assessed the wounds and determined he didn’t need stitches so we didn’t go to the ER. Later on as he slept, i cried like a baby when i was telling a neighbor what happened. I didn’t sleep Friday night because i wanted to make sure he was still breathing and you can imagine all the thoughts going through my mind. Anyway, i knew that he was fine when i heard a banging on the wall the next morning(that’s my wake up call from him and did i mention his bedroom is next to mine? because we share a wall:-) ). He is back to climbing and running(he never walks) and my sweet baby boy will be just fine.
   I hope your weekend was accident free and that you all had a terrific one! The wonderful Kelly over at Life at 5 feet has awarded me the 101 award. We are becoming fast friends and it’s uncanny just how much we have in common. I also look forward to visiting her blog each day as her posts are usually filled with such wit and humour.  I can’t imagine anyone not knowing about Kelly, but if you don’t, time to get “in the know” and give her a visit.
happy 101
