Clumsy Mommy Strikes Again!

I believe that I have taken my clumsiness to an all new level. One that involves me endangering my child. I just might be one of the most clumsy people you will ever meet. One minute I will be standing, minding my business when all of the sudden, I'm on the floor. I literally just fall over sometimes for no reason. My latest adventure happened last night while carrying Munchkin down the stairs, yep, you guessed it! I went tumbling down about 6 steps with Munchkin in my arms. This was a very scary experience, every single fiber in my body was trying to hold on to my precious cargo, all I could think about was not letting her go head first onto the hardwood and break her neck. I did manage to hold onto her, although her head grazed the wall a little. My left hip, butt and right ankle took the brunt of the fall, and Munchkin was scared half to death, but we are fine. Just a bruised ego! And in case you read my post about 32 not being old, don't try falling down the stairs to test this theory. It's kind of like a bad hangover, you just don't recover as fast as you did when you were 21. Wow! I sound like an old Granny, but I kid you not, I am sore, sore, sore.

My lack of grace is something I've gotten used to over the years, I can pretty much just laugh it off, when you fall as much I do, you find a way to cope.

One time during my pregnancy, I literally fell into a store while reading aloud to Hubby the sign on the door that said "CAUTION: Uneven Step Up!" That was the day I retired my heels for the remainder of my pregnancy. If there is a crack in the sidewalk my heel will find it, an uneven surface, I'll be the first to take that "trip" and immediately look around to see if anyone saw, you know you do that too!!

Anyhoo, I could tell you stories all day, but I'll just let you be a witness to future posts in person!
