It Could've Been Worse...

No, I didn't do anything THIS bad! I can be quite the airhead, but I swear I'd never do this to my child! (How funny is it though?!) I did do something quite 'blonde' that warrants writing about, however.

I can be a bit spacey. Sometimes I just live in my own little la-tee-la-tee-da world. Most of everyone who knows me has known this for, oh, ever. Livia's Auntie Kee-Kee may not have actually realized how much I am a ditz until just last night...

Yesterday evening, Livia & I went out with Kendra (my sis-by-choice - AKA, Conservative Supermom) to go out to eat! It was just the three of us, and though it was fun, I kinda missed not having any of her kids around. Anyway, K came over to our house as I was finishing up getting ready (running late again - imagine that!) After I did finally get loading up, I was putting Livie in her car seat (that she gave us, by the way! Isn't she awesome?) and I saw Kendra was giving me the funniest look...

"What's wrong?" I said

"Um... How are you putting her in there...?" K replied, noticing that it was taking me a bit to get Liv situated in her car seat.

"Like this [me moving out of the way for her to see]... Is that not right?"

"Well, I never put any of my kids in like that... I usually sit them down & snap the straps over their legs..."

[Me finally 'getting' how I was putting Livia in wrong] "Ohhh... OOHHH!! You mean I've been doing this the HARD WAY for like nearly a year?!"

We sure shared a good laugh over that... God Bless her! She could have made me feel like such an idiot, but she didn't! Like she said: At least I'm finding this out now instead of on kid #3 - though that very well could have been the case if she hadn't come to my rescue! See, she really is a Supermom :o)

Thank you again for an absolutely wonderful time out, K - and thanks for not making me feel like a total space-case when you saw how I've been putting Livia in the car seat 'the hard way'!

Hi Amanda

Ahhh the things we learn as we go. At least you can have a good laugh as you learn. Laughter makes that steep learning curve so much more easier to climb.

Hello Amanda

Thank you so much for your comments on my blog. I can't believe that I have not taken any pictures of Sav kissing, or gently touching my tummy. A brilliant idea and I can't wait to try and get some pics of this tomorrow.

Your idea about the photos in the mirror sound absolutely brilliant. I am going to attempt to execute your awesome idea (if you don't mind of course). Not sure if my limited photography skills will be up for the challenge, but it's worth a try.

I really appreciate your kind words and thoughts. I am so glad that I have met you in blogland.

Sending love to you and your family.
