A Word of Caution . . .

** Using Weights Around a Two Year Old Can Be Dangerous!! **

I realize that some of you may already know this. I, unfortunately, had to learn this the hard way. A couple of days ago, I was using hand weights in the play room. I put them down to do some sit-ups and Myles picked one up.
Well, you would just not believe how much pain a 5 lb. weight can cause when it comes crashing down . . . on your head . . . between your eyes. Yes, after shrieking in pain and agony (and assuring Myles that I still loved him) I went to the mirror to assess the damage. One large golf ball size lump was protruding from my head. I looked like a Klingon. Sterling took advantage of the situation by laughing at me. Ha!
Today the bump is gone but I do have a yellowish spot between my eyes. Maybe if it turns black or blue I will take some pictures. But, I just thought that I would pass on my new found wisdom so that you could all learn from my mistakes.

OMG! How painful! Thank goodness you and not the kid - but still. LOL. (How's that for sympathy?) ;)

I responded to your question about Bav on my blog - but in case you don't check back I wanted you to get your answer. Here's what I replied:

Andrea/Bav left blogging (not sure if permanently), because someone stole her blog or her identity or something. One of her friends posted about it but I can't remember who! It's so hard to keep track of who knows who in blogs. LOL.

LOL. Thank you for the good laugh this morning:) hehe!

Ok and Andrea (Bumbling BAv) decided to delete her blog because she didn't have the time for it. BOOOO! Dont u get any crazy ideas.

Glad to see a new post from you, hope all is well:)

That gives me a headache just imagining it! Mythbusters (one of my son's favorite shows) was showing the damage that could be caused by dropping a frozen turkey while getting it out of the freezer. It hit the floor with over 400 lbs of pressure! So, I'm sure that 5 lb weight felt like a whole lot more! Hope you are feeling better...

(And yes, I am pregnant! With a boy due in March.)
