So, we went to a birthday party for a friend the other afternoon - it was at a super jump-jump place .... it was a blast. Lots & lots of smiles from the little girl. The parents were kind enough to serve pizza, to which I thought "Awesome. Dinner....check!" One less thing on my list....but, of course, she ate the ice cream for dinner & cake for dessert. And washed it all down with some apple juice. She & sugar don't mix well. Surely I have posted on this......& if not, just trust me - she goes crazy. Turns out I was the same way as a kid. Anyway, I have a point & I promise to get to it.....and I guess it's not really a "point"....it's just a story....and I think I have to document it whether anyone wants to read about it or not. So, we're at the party.....the sugar has been consumed & it's nearing time to go home.
"Can i go play?"
"Sure, but just for a few minutes because we need to get home"
SHe's jumping & jumping & climbing & laughing & every now & then she jumps up & I see her grinning adorable face.....full of joy. Only one time her head pops up & that beautiful smile definitely had a tint of blood to it.
"Get out. You're bleeding"
So she does. Minor lip bustage - she's gonna be fine. Whew.
"Let's go get your shoes & head on home"
While she's putting on her shoes, a pack of boys accidentally knock her down - she hits her bottom on a metal bar & tears & screams follow. I wanted to make sure she was OK, but I wasn't sure if I should lift her dress up in public & there's a little boy in my arms, which just makes it hard to maneuver....I have a feeling in my gut that she's really OK so we calm down & head for the car. She opened her goody bag, the crying stops & with tears still streaming she exclaims, "Oh MAN! It's all my favorites!"
So we pull out headed towards home & I hear a muffled sound from the back.....I look in the rearview...she's choking. So i pull over, open the back door & pull out.....a gummy worm. And then she pukes all over me. This all happened over a span of FIFTEEN MINUTES!
And I ask you......how am I ready for a 3rd baby?
