Walking wounded

Monday, monday. It's been a weekend of blood, pus and kissing ouchies. My two kids were walking accidents, tripping, falling, scraping, every step of the way.

It started on Friday, when the girls seemed to spend their whole day being scraped off the footpath. Their legs were a zig-zag of cuts and scrapes. Then there was a hair pulling incident that ended with Lil-lil having a rather large scratch across her face. Friday afternoon involved stripping off clothes and rolling in a mud puddle (as you do). Despite an intense scrubbing in the bath, we still ended up at the doctors on Saturday morning to have an infected toe tended to. The nurse scraped half of the park out of Goosey's toe and we headed home with a prescription under our arm.

Sunday morning, Lil-lil went for a fly over the concrete and ended up with a badly scraped knee, elbow, hip and tummy. After a lot of tears and Princess band-aids (Thank you Mrs Woog) the warrior was  back and ready to go again.

We spent the afternoon lazing and eating at my dad's place and decided a mid-afternoon trip on the boat would cap off a lovely day. It did until Goosey's uninjured big toe ended up under an anchor. A river of tears and a black toenail later, we decided it might be time to head home.

At home, we had two little girls lying on the couch crying about their injuries. Lashings of Dettol and a few Princess band-aids and a dose of antibiotics later the patients were finally quiet and asleep. Here we are ready for another week battered and bruised (me on the inside). I think we've seen enough blood around here for now.


  1. We had a week like that two weeks ago, I felt like someone might report me to DHS,we were so covered in bruises and band aids, lucky Dora band aids can solve any issue in this house.

  2. geez lovely...that sounds like
    WW3!! Those crazy kids and their playtime! Who said girls were quietier than boys!! xx

  3. Hopefully, this week will be much better.

  4. Hope this week heals all their wounds but I'm sure they had fun over the weekend despite the cuts and sores.

  5. Have you thought about dressing them in matching miniature Michelin Man suits? then they could just bounce off the pavements....

  6. My goodness Corinne! What a shocker! Poor little poppets. You must breed em tough :o)

  7. Did you notice a black cloud hovering above you and your family everywhere you went too?! That sounds like an absolute shocker of a weekend.


Thank you so much for your comments! I'm always thrilled to hear from you.
