It’s Whiteboard Wednesday again, that time where I share something bizarre I’ve said recently.
This week’s addition to the things-I’m-shocked-I’ve-said comes courtesy of watching Vivian climb the stairs. Normally, she bounds up with speed and confidence that I used to have a decade or two ago. But on this particular day, she decided to use her head, literally.
Imagine crawling up the stairs (hint: recall that time you sprained your ankle or had too many margaritas). Now, picture yourself crawling using your head instead of your hands.
It’s at that point I said this:
There was a small consolation: she wasn’t doing her head-crawl down the stairs.
Any bizarre things you’ve said or heard or come across this week?
Seriously, I was thinking of signing my kids up for the circus. You want in?
Just once I would like my kids to use their heads for what they are suppose to be used for…. thinking and learning.
Not a precise reenactment. Funny.
Did this happen to be at a moment when she really didn’t want to be up the stairs? Like instead of dragging her feet she was dragging her head? I’ve seen our 6YO literally lose feeling in all of his extremities and fall on the stairs, immoblized at the precise moment he’s supposed to be coming up for dinner.
Love my Whiteboard Wednesday fix.
This week I actually told my kids to go play in the oven.
It was a giant cardboard oven I’d made for a Brownie activity. But still…..
Surreal saying of the week: “Your hair is not feathers.”
My kid FLIES.
Yay for kids thinking and behaving differently!
