We’ve had a rough go recently around BBCD.
Jack has some severe disc problems in his back, initially leaving him unable to move and shuddering in tremendous pain.
Then, our pool grew a leak.
A MAJOR leak.
Like, a you-can’t-walk-in-half-of-our-yard-without-muddy-water-coming-over-the-top-of-your-feet leak.
We had to drain (what was left in) it, and have the liner replaced. I’m pretty tempted to run a contest to see who can come closest to guessing on how much our water bill is going to be next month. Starbucks card, anyone?
On Saturday, Maddie took a nasty fall while playing outside. She ripped up her right knee pretty badly, scraped up her right elbow and smashed her forehead on the driveway.
Then just yesterday, she fell down the stairs. As in, tripped while she was at the top because she was stubbornly not holding onto the handrail, and tumbled – head over feet – all the way down to the bottom!
It was pretty terrifying. Somehow, I managed to lunge towards the baby gate and force it closed – stopping her rapid descent – just before she face-planted on our kitchen tile.
I think I earned some more Mama Stripes yesterday.
Can the Rule of 3s apply here? Between Jack, Maddie and the pool liner, I think we’re due for a break.
