Big Accident

I had my first big accident today. Mommy feels horrible about it. She normally runs on her treadmill (or Anger Management Therapy as she calls it) while my brother and I are sleeping. For the last couple of months, we haven't been taking naps so she decided to give it a shot a few weeks ago to try and run while we played. There have been absolutely no problems. She'd run for about 10 minutes, check on us, and run again...repeat. You get the idea. We would play, run around, or if lucky, watch a video.

Today was the video. All was well until my brother and I started chasing each other. Normally this is so cute but today I ran after my brother and then right to Mom. She couldn't stop me fast enough and I jumped onto the treadmill and went flying. I'm okay but have some serious 'road rash' on my arm, a hand, my chest, and part of my back. It's not pretty.

Mommy cried, I cried, and Jonah joined in too. It was traumatic. Today has not been a good day.

Oh! Ouch! I'm glad I use the treadmill at the gym. Unforutnately, since I have to go the gym, I don't get there as often as I need to!

Kristi,

If it makes you feel any better, in the last two days I let Evan wander into the back yard (and close the back door behind himself) and run into one of our rose bushes in his stroller (did not set the lock b/c I ran back in the house just to grab one more thing; he wriggled around and got the wheels headed down the drive way). No mother-of-the-year awards being handed out at our house...

I'm not signing my name b/c I'm embarassed enough I don't want fellow blog readers to know about it!
