The next Olympic Sport?

I think being a Mom should be an Olympic sport.  

We could have event's like "Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Making" and "Catching Throw Up" (maybe that one could even have special awards for the most original thing you've grabbed to catch your child's throw up!)  Or how about my favorite "Fastest run out of a movie theater when you get 'THAT call."

That's what happened to us this week.  Yikes, was that an adventure.

Dear Hubby and I had been trying to go see the new Batman for a while now.  We'd tried several times, but things just kept coming up or getting in the way.  We finally decided to go on Monday when they had $5.00 movie night.

About half way through the movie...for those that have seen it...they had just thrown Bruce Wayne into the pit, my daughter started calling.  I didn't have my phone on me, and being a good movie patron, it was on silent, so I didn't know.  But hubby's phone was in his pocket, so he got the vibe.

I checked my phone and saw my daughter had called twice and texted a few times.  I figured I'd better call and see what was up.  So I grabbed my phone and snuck out.  As soon as I called home, Pandemonium broke lose.

Apparently the Daredevil had decided to try and do a "Dukes of Hazard" on the top of a friend's car.  He jumped on the hood and slid right down the licence plate.  I're all cringing now.  I still am too.  I did that once too as a hurts like heck!

The Daredevil sliced his leg pretty good and the kids were rushing him to the Emergency Room.  We ran out of the theater at top speed.  We even beat the kids to the ER.

Three hours and five stitches later...we drove home.  And you know what I kept thinking?  I FORGOT THE DARN POPCORN.  After paying $10.00 a bag for popcorn, it was only half empty and I'd left it there.  DANG IT!

But maybe I'll be rewarded by getting a Gold in the mothering event.  Or maybe I'll flunk out for not being home to prevent it.  Or for two trips to the ER for the same child in less than six months.  That should be some type of record.  (SIGH.)

  1. I had too many typos in my other postm and it bugged me. LOL! My daughter has to be a record holder in the # of ER trips in a short period of time. She went 4 times in 24 days.. 3 of them were in only 11 days. First trip was Jan 31 with what we thought was appendicitis. It turned out to be mono. Sent to a pediatric ER 40 miles away by our Dr on Feb 9 during an office visit, because the Dr thought she was having appendicitis. It turned out to be adenitis, which is an infection of the lymph nodes exactly where the appendix is. (a side effect from the mono and found with an ultrasound) Just 2 days later on Feb 11, back to the ER again for an emergency cat scan. She had run into her brother and was in so much pain, they thought she had ruptured her spleen that was enlarged by the mono. Then on Feb 24 sent again with severe stomach pains. This time it turned out to be severe constipation caused by all the pain meds she had been on for all the other stuff. February was not a fun month!
