{skinned knees aren’t just for kids}

A few weeks ago I wrote about this fun experience on Instagram. Typically we think of kids getting skinned knees but sometimes even mommies get hurt.

Paige and were talking about her personality (on the way to school this morning) and she was trying to convince me of just how kind and compassionate she is when kids get hurt or need help. I suddenly tripped and fell to my knees (with Blake attached to me in the mobi wrap), scraped up my knees and hopped right back up. It was in front of a row of cars and totally embarrassing but everyone was fine. Except Paige. As a reaction i had grabbed her backpack to brace myself as I was falling. She hardly even jerked but was very upset that I would do such a thing. I spent several minutes consoling  her (she actually had tears) before I said we were no longer going to discuss her “potential” injury while I was the one actually hurt. So much for her compassion and kindness! Ha ha.

Later that day I had an UPDATE: Paigey got home from school and sincerely apologized when she saw my scraped-up knee. She said “I made it about me and you were the one hurt…you really got hurt! I’m so sorry mommy!” Daddy gave her a little pep talk…I’m glad she got it. Glad we can all laugh about it!!!

This little experience made me realize that at the end of the day kids do have good hearts and with a little pep talk they usually come around!

And I’m glad I don’t take myself too seriously {most of the time}!

And some days are just better than others!
