Dangerous Activities

I am on the cusp of banning a number of activities due to recent injuries in our household. You would not believe the multitude of ways that small people can find to hurt themselves. And then they wail and cry and go on and on. My well of sympathy is not bottomless and it is getting seriously drained these days.

Here are just a few things I’m considering banning.

  1. Sneezing at the table. Yes, my son managed to slam his face down on the table while sneezing. 
  2. Jumping. My son somehow kneed himself in the face while jumping.
  3. More than 1 child on a single couch. They may start off giving each other hugs but it never ends happily.
  4. Running.
  5. Walking.
  6. Sitting on a chair.
  7. Getting onto a chair.
  8. Crawling on the floor.
  9. Standing up after crawling on the floor.
  10. Lying down on a bed.
  11. Brushing teeth.
  12. Brushing hair.

That’s just my starting list. I’m sure there are other potentially dangerous activities just waiting to make my life miserable. Oddly enough, climbing trees seems to be perfectly safe!


About dirtyrottenparenting

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home.

    Yessss, nodding in agreement at everything. Walking and sitting are DANGEROUS and must be prohibited!

  2. my son managed to hurt himself faster than I could drive to the ER sometimes… .
    Getting hit by a car = goose egg.
    Playing on a harmless backyard jungle gym = breaking both bones in the arm and requiring surgery to fix.
    Go figure.

    My youngest son wiped out in a book store and hit his head on a shelf. It took me a minute to realize that blood was pouring down his neck and for it to sink in that, when I looked at the wound, I was looking at his skull. Whisked him off to the doctor for repairs.
    My oldest once managed to poke himself in the eye with a tortilla chip.

  4. I am laughing out loud reading this post! I would add getting into the car to this list because, for some odd reason, I have one child who has fallen – half in, half out – of the car while trying to get in. He is nine. 😉

  5. I laughed right out loud reading this, mine are exactly the same. Loved it and shared it for more to enjoy.
