The Momma got a shiner.
Yesterday, the four of us girls (Roxie as #4) went on a walk. It was very blue and had been sprinkling on and off for the afternoon so we just lapped the loop. As we passed the house the second time, I decided to run up to my car and get the mail key. I left the stroller with Roxie tethered to it in the gutter/street.
Remember last post when I was bragging about the Spidey Sense that motherhood had afforded me?? Lie. As I was opening the car door, I felt a bug on my leg. I simultaneously opened the car door and looked down to make sure it wasn't a dreaded spider. I opened the car door into my face. Hard.
I had to take a knee it was so severe. I saw stars and opened my eye to dripping blood. And then I was tormented by the two most important questions while in that situation:
1) Did anyone see that?
2) Why have a never trained Roxie to pull the stroller sled-dog-style so that I don't have to walk back down there and get the family?
It scared Kate. It hurts when I chew. We're flying with the girls again today...to a wedding. Awesome. Good thing not too many people will see it!
