Open mouth…insert foot!


I spent 6hrs with 12 two year olds today.  I have to tell you, God must have sent down an angel.  I had a blast.  I played and talked to them like they really understood me.  I fell in love with a little one, the smallest one in the room.  I’ll call him lil G.  Well lil G was taking a beating today…2 yr olds are GANGSTER with theirs. (LOL)   He got run over and began to cry…I scooped him up and rocked him until he fell asleep (BIG MISTAKE).  It wasn’t nap time!  DUH!  Shame on me!  So I woke him up and that’s when I noticed the “scar” on his eyebrow.  I asked one of the teachers about this boo boo and she gave me a look…you know the look like “ummm…welllllll”  she went on to tell me that lil G’s parents got married and to celebrate his parents shaved off all his hair and shaved lines into his eyebrows(his 3 yr old brother too!). So he could look like his “daddy”.


I tried to hold him close to me for the rest of the day.  I tried not to think what the future held for lil G.

As I watched those babies running around I thought of my own babies at that age.  I was so busy with school and my military career I feel like I missed it.

So today I got a blessing, the love of a room full of babies!




I have a pedi clinical this morning.  I really don’t want to go!  I have a severe anxiety when it comes to being in a group of little kids I don’t know(if they’re family I’m happy to be there).  I get all jittery waiting for them to attack(touch me).  I’m not a germaphobe but I feel like little kids are the germiest.  I’m good after they are school age but before that it just skeeves me out.  Runny noses, drooling, biting, touching…EWWWW.  I’m praying I don’t have a panic attack.  Seriously.
