busted up kisser






as of late Bryson has been very obsessed with who is watching him throughout any given day. in fact when he first wakes up he asks, "who is watching me today?" i realize that most kids have some sort of stability - either one of their parents are home, or they are at daycare or a nanny, but i think for the majority of children it is fairly constant...not so much here. one week i could be with them all week, the next it could be Bryan, or the next we could have a sitter and both B and I are in the office. it changes...always...organically...based on the needs of the office and we cant really predict it sometimes. anyway - i always thought that our kids would love this - that they would get daddy and do daddy things and when they have mommy they get to do mommy things...but with bryson i can sense this is affecting him in a negative way and he needs more stability. and he definitely needs more mommy time...this also happens to be my busiest time in the office - end of the month and end of the year...so i knew i had the day today to spend with my boys and bryson was oh so excited, so i thought it would be fun to take them to disneyland...and it was...for a while...until this happened. we were playing in a little play area in toon town and he fell off a watermelon. there was a lot of blood. all the other parents were freaking out. i mean freaking out. what a horrible thing to do! i mean the poor kid is already scared people...i just kept telling him its fine, its just a cut lip and there is a lot of blood cause there is a lot of blood in your lip...and that seemed to freak out the parents even more... "you should go to medical services" "he needs first aid" "are you okay, buddy?" - people...its a split lip...a cut - he is fine...you never cut your lip before? he'll live...even without a disney first aid person making me sign some waiver before they even look at my child (j/k i dont know if they really do that - i never went). anyway - the funny part of the story is that bryson kept crying. i asked if he was crying cause it hurt or if it was because of all the blood and he said, "no...its cause i want to still go on a ride"....okay...so lets wait till the bleeding stops and we'll go on a ride. this is my life with boys...very boyish boys...

Darn Toontown...dangers left and right...did you know last time I went I asked if the Jolly Trolley still ran and they sounded shocked and were like "No! It's far too dangerous!" Yeah, I know, I drove it for two summers.
