What in the world????

So, isn't there a philosphy out there that once your child gets hurt from something that he probably shouldn't be doing, that they won't do it again??? For example: touching a hot stove, climbing over the couch, falling and hitting his head on the window seal, running too fast and making friends with the pavement, climbing on the kitchen chairs and falling, etc, etc. These are all examples of what my fearless second child does, cries about it, comes to tell me what hurt him with a small hug from me and then goes about his business to do it once again. Crazy!!!! I didn't get a picture of his first black eye, but here is his second one he received yesterday by trying to catch himself while falling and ended up sliding on the pavement with his cheek. I would say poor little guy, but he doesn't seem to care that much, but it is sad and of course I don't want him to keep injuring himself. I want to get 18 month pictures taken in a couple weeks, but at this rate I don't know if I will be able to. I am just surprised, but so thankful, that he hasn't broken anything yet. I will keep praying for him on that one, among everything else. Gotta love the second boy wanting to be like his brother way too fast.

Okay, so I had every intention of posting a picture, but after I wrote this I ended up getting sick and have been down and out for the past week. Today, the following Thursday is the first day I have had any energy and that's not that much to begin with. It hasn't been the greatest week. Thank goodness my mom was here part of the time to take care of the boys, but bummer that we missed days to do fun stuff. So, sorry there is no picture, just use your imagination.

Oh my goodness. Drake is the same way!!! He burned his leg on the lawnmower and I thought for sure he would stay away after that. But no, it is the first thing he goes to or asks about when we go outside. BOYS!!!!
On another note, I hope you feel better soon Melissa!! I am so sorry you have been sick! It is so hard to be sick AND watch 2 boys! Get well soon!
