This girl has had so many knots on her forehead during her first year of life. We are so proud of her that FINALLY after MUCH instruction, she has agreed to go down the stairs on her tummy.
She gets a really big start, lying down halfway across the room and scooting backward until she gets to the stairs. We all breathed a big sigh of relief because now we don’t have to worry about her walking off the edge.
But on one attempt, she lost her balance half way down and hit the railing at the bottom. This bump popped out instantly.
Don’t you love the contrast of the big goose egg with the flower? 🙂
The kids came home from a playdate this afternoon and as soon as they walked in the front door, the 10-year-old started discussing the messy condition of our home.
“I think I know how the “X” family keeps their house so clean,” he said, in a tone that suggested he had just solved a great mystery.
“We were playing downstairs, and I happened to look up the stairs for a moment,” he continued.
For a second, I thought for sure he was going to reveal our friends had hired a cleaning service. Could it be?
“I noticed that Mrs. X was moving around upstairs, and she seemed to be… you know…” he said, “cleaning up.”
A-HA! By golly, that’s it!
The secret has been revealed! Now, I understand! So, it seems that the way OTHER people keep their houses clean is that the MOM actually spends her spare time CLEANING!
If only I had thought of this sooner!
