The most exciting moment of the last two days had to be when Ryland found some razor blades in the bathroom. I, being a serious contender for mom of the year, was actually in the bathroom with her putting on makeup (a rare occurrence) and had no idea what she had gotten into (she always sits on the floor pulling things out of the drawers, somehow missed the fact that there were razor blades in there). She didn’t make any noise that would indicate something hurt. In fact she was TOO quiet, which was when I looked down and saw what looked like a crime scene.
Cue twenty minutes of trying to hold a towel on the (very minor but we all know how crazy razor nicks can bleed) cuts on her finger while she screamed and wriggled like a banshee. (This is when my peds nurse background kicks in, I can hold down a kid like the best of them and barely break a sweat).
We don’t have any medical tape in our house (nurse fail) so we managed to Maguiver a solution to keep her from bleeding all over our house. She was less than pleased but consoled by chocolate.
I made scones from the latest issue of Magnolia that were pretty darn scrumptious.
While I’ve been baking, Ryland has managed to entertain herself…
Its a rare year where Rob and I are both off Christmas Eve and Christmas Day so I’m really trying to enjoy every moment and soak in all the holiday family goodness.
Here’s hoping everyone else is having a lovely day! ????
