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.
- Sneezing at the table. Yes, my son managed to slam his face down on the table while sneezing.
- Jumping. My son somehow kneed himself in the face while jumping.
- More than 1 child on a single couch. They may start off giving each other hugs but it never ends happily.
- Sitting on a chair.
- Getting onto a chair.
- Crawling on the floor.
- Standing up after crawling on the floor.
- Lying down on a bed.
- Brushing teeth.
- 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!
