Another Week, and Some More Stories.

Eating my words, that is exactly what I am currently doing. The BB has decided its time, he tells the world, he is not what I represent him to be. The last week at the playgroup, he finds two plastic dolls, and goes all ga-ga about them. Kissing them, hugging them and being all excited. I was sitting with this other mother, who has two school going daughters, and a little toddler, and had once discussed with her, how boys and girls have different temperaments, from the time they are kids. I had mentioned, how the BB never took to the stuffed toys, we had brought for him ever. And here he was hugging the dolls, like they were his most favourite objects of play in the whole wide world. What can I say, kids are born to do just that aren't they?

In other news, I managed to hurt the BB really bad, when I slipped, with him in my arms, and that caused him to bang the back of his head on the door edge behind. I am cringing in my sleep, each time I remember the incident. There was a rainbow in the sky on Friday evening, and I ran towards the backyard, carrying the BB to show it to him, there was some rainwater near the door, I slipped, and fell, and the BB got hurt worse than me. I don't know, how and why this happens. I am supposed to protect him as a mother, and I end up getting him hurt more than he would if he were not with me. makes me feel really disgusted with myself. Really do. He is even sporting a bruise on his ear, and though I don't think it happened from that particular fall, it looks scary, seeing the clot in the ear.

Hey! Don't be so hard on yourself. It happens. It's actually damn cute that you so badly wanted to share the rainbow with him, so what if an accident happened!? Cheer up!

And about him loving his dolls, very sweet :)

Don't blame yourself GM, it was an accident ... they don't get hurt or fall ill as often, as they grow older -
About the hugging of a doll.... that's really sweet!

The doll hugging is super cool... so much so for gender tagged toys!!! i love your boy! And as for the fall.... awww... muah muah on all those places where it hurts... n yes please stop being so judgmental ... if he doesn't fall how will he have bruises that he can later show his kids n tell stories about his growing up years!

Soul Of Alec Smart - I cannot not beat myself up about it. I have to keep him safe, not get him hurt, just cannot accept that. And the playing with the dolls was real cute. :)

MRC - My hubby gets more flustered than me. :(

Bones - Yeah well, but does not make me good either.

Trish - This isn't the first time Trish.

Pixie - Omg! good she was fine.

Hitchy - Only if it had not happened by me.

Piper - But they should not. I need to be less clumsy and more careful.

IHM - I know they fall and get huirt, but I got him hurt in this case, and when they fall on their own, they are closer to the ground, so it hurts a lot less.

Momo's Ma - OMG! Thank God she did not get hurt. touchwood!

Sagarika - I know, it was so cute. He can fall, but i cannot bang his head on door-edges!!! That is not acceptable.

Mamma mia! Me a mamma? said...

You know I know the feeling. It's terrifying...

hugs to you and your precious little boy.
