are klutzes born?

or bred? I'm a full-on, total 100% complete klutz. I always have bruises. I often hit my head. Or my hand on a door frame as i'm walking through or elbow on a wall or stub my toe on just about anything including the flat ground I walk on. I spill things and drop things, but it's mostly self-abuse that I'm about. J is a total klutz too. I think he spills a drink at least once a day. And I don't know what to do. It's almost becoming comical. Tonight it was a nearly-full can of sprite. Onto the area rug in the living room. Don't worry - we're nothing fancy here and I really don't care all that much about the rug. But whether it's water or milk or juice or the occasional pop...I'd really rather it just stayed on the table.

In other news, kindergarten is going quite wonderfully. At least I think it is. J seems happy. Mind you, when I ask him what he did in kindergarten today, the answer is usually the same(ish). "I don't really know". "You don't know what you did today in school?" "I just can't talk about it. I just don't want to talk about that anymore." Oh. Well excuuuuse me!

How I love this boy.
Just this very minute, you know what he said to me?
"Yes sweetie"
(sigh) "Oh nevermind"
"what is it?"
"oh.....I'm just sorry I spilled my sprite. Mama are you mad at me?"


So, we're adjusting alright to the new schedule. Read: I'm adjusting alright. I think I'm the only one with issues about change and adjustments.

It's very Mondayish around here. Our receptionist at work is quitting. Honestly...I feel exhausted just thinking about it. I've thought a lot lately about back in the day when we were such a solid, small group and worked together so well. I'm the only one left and it's hard to even think about the hiring process and training process and just....ugh. What can I say...it was a Mondy through and through.

I'm going to pour myself a glass of cab sauv and sink into a hot bath. Have a good steam, put the kid to bed, and get ready for a couple hours of scrapping and Project Runway at 10:00. Actually, that sounds like kind of a heavenly end to a very Mondayish Monday.

yes. that's me too.
I'm praying connor doesn't get that from me. Jon's got the grace and agility in this family.

Love that little jax-man. Could he be any sweeter?

I know where he gets that from ;)
miss you babe.

Sarah said...

you need that evening after a Monday.

You are obviously a good Mama. He's such a sweet boy!

Oh, and about the school day...sometimes leading questions help...I couldn't get anything out of my kids until I started asking "Who did you sit next to at lunch?" or "Did you play outside today?" and that triggers an event for them. I think it's all a bit overwhelming at first!

sounds like the perfect end to a monday...
a glass of wine and a nice hot bath.

and yeah, I'm a major klutz too...
trust me.
I'm the girl that recently slammed her RIGHT hand in the door of her car as she was getting into the drivers seat.
Um...shouldn't it have been my left hand I slammed in the door?
Can't explain that one . . . it's still a mystery (and it still is bruised!).

Oh my word, I am a total klutz too - I think you just perfectly described me and now that I'm pregnant, holy cow, it's even worse (if that's possible!)!!
I hope things get more settled at work soon.

Jamie said...

Another total klutz raising her hand right here!
I can't do anything with managing to hurt myself, it's borderline ridiculous.
How sweet is J?
Seriously, what a little sweetheart.
We love him. :)
