Our Friday

Friday morning my friend Jess and I decided to take the kids to the park before the heat set in. It was really nice outside, almost felt like fall. I love this picture of the kids. Ryanne is saying,"don't' worry Ethan you can trust me." And Ethan is saying,"NO WAY! I read your mama's blog!" Morgan is saying,"Welcome to my life buddy." :) In other Ryanne news; Ryanne just completed her second year on the star fish swim team. They swim from May 1st through to the end of August. She did wonderful and was so proud of herself when she swam all the way across the deep end in 12' of water.
Since I am on a "Ryanne kick" today let me tell you how she took another 2 years off my life. At this rate I should be dead by next Tuesday. *sigh*
Yesterday she woke up not feeling well so with Dan working we decided to hunker down in our PJ's all day and just veg out. I had told Ryanne like 3 times to just lay down and watch the movie and to leave the kitten sleep under the recliner. I was loading laundry when I hear the cat cry out for help. I turn the corner to see the chair in the recline position and Ryanne's little body sticking out from the waste down. I yell,"Ryanne! What the heck are you doing under there?" What does a 5 year old do when they realize they are under a chair in trouble? They try to back out. Well, Ryanne starts to back out when she realizes she is stuck. She starts to scream bloody murder and I don't know what the heck is happening under the chair. At first I think the cat is clawing her face or something so I grab the chair lifting it thinking I am going to free her little body. Nope, she starts to scream as I move the chair and that's when I realize her head is stuck between two bars along with her arm. She's screaming, Morgan starts screaming, I'm screaming for everyone to STOP screaming. *sigh* I then do what any good mother does and realize I am still in my jammies with no teeth brushed, no bra no nothing so we are not calling 911 to have them saw my chair in half. So with one swift yank (I know, I know, thank God I didn't break her neck or arm and yes I can babysit for you anytime.) I yank her free and leave only minor cuts, bar rash and scrapes on her face and arms. I was so mad when I found out she was OK. Seriously? I mean seriously God? Who does these kinds of things? *sigh*

Love the pictures...and I truly believe the only reason this happens to you is because you are able to take it in stride and make the rest of us laugh with you! Love it. Ryanne is an amazing child and you are one gifted momma!

Brigitte said...

Oh hey...by the way call me when you head the park...I'd love to join in the fun!

Eileen said...

I laughed till I cried, now how bad is that? But I figure you wouldn't be blogging about it if she was seriously hurt! Great picture of the kids on the slide!

Jolene Grace said...

You are AMAZING, Christy! My hero!

Okay the funniest part is that you were mad when you found out she was "okay". Like would you have been happy if you had to take her to the hospital?! Hee hee. Giggling over here by myself ;).

And I'll still let you babysit anytime ;).

(Oh and that picture of Ethan and Ryanne is ADORABLE!)

LOVE the picture of the kids at the park. Does that ever tell a story.
I laughed so hard reading about Ryanne. When we were kids, my brother got his head stuck between the bars in the banister that was supposed to keep us from falling from the 2nd floor. I was having some flashbacks.

It kind of reminds me when Adam was little and he was home sick laying around in his Buzz costume watching movies, he heads upstairs and the next thing I hear is "to infinity and beyond!" crash, cry, tooth pretty chipped!! Yes I was just as mad as you were
