I was compiling some random facts about myself in my head (doesn't everyone do that?) and realized that after each thought, I had added the word seriously on the end.  Apparently I needed to reiterate, to myself, that I was not kidding.


So, if you would indulge me… after each of these thoughts, just imagine me looking at you sweet blogging buddies with a deadpan expression and saying, "Seriously."   For the IRL  (In Real Life) folks, I am sure once you saw the title, no explanation was needed.


I will turn 40 in eight short years.  For some reason that fact is totally freaking me out.


Having changed roughly 10,000 diapers in the last four years (yes, I actually sat down and tried to figure it out) why is it that every single diaper seems to behold a new challenge?


If I could dress anyway I wanted, I would get Jennifer Lopez's wardrobe from the movie Wedding Planner.  


I used to think I was calm under pressure.  I am the mom of toddler boys.  Its sorta a requirement.

Until this happened.


That is a bump the size of an egg.  I freaked out.  Thank goodness hubby was home. 

I had no place to vent my fear and annoyance that I let something like this happen to my baby so I sat and yelled at my husband for letting something like this happen to my baby.

(It was no ones 'fault'… Parker was pretending to be ghost and had a blanket over himself and ran head first into the corner of a wall.)

That bump was gone within two hours and he doesn't even have a bruise from it. 

I, however, am still completely traumatized from the incident… but I have feeling it is not going to be my last encounter with head injuries. 


I am a fan of Sarah Palin on facebook. Seriously. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You are SERIOUSLY phenomenal! This post made me smile ๐Ÿ™‚ Hoping your week has started off famously!

  • Sharon says:

    Me too! to all of them (except J Lo’s wardrobe… I prefer t-shirts. And I’ll be forty in less than two years… ahhhh!)

  • Amanda Jo says:

    GOODNESS! I would have had a heart attack if Ethan had a knot that big on his head and I was there to witness it! I am SO GLAD to hear your little guy is ok!!! I just had to add…The Wedding Planner is one of my favorite movies of all time! JLo’s clothes in that movie are SO cute!

  • Christina says:

    Love it. The other day I was thinking about doing a random facts blog, but totally had a brain freeze. I was like what is something random about me?? I went blank. Maybe soon if I can conjure up enough brain cells.
    Your son’s poor head!!! I tell my husband all the time, God knew what he was doing giving us all girls, we do not have good enough insurance to have boys:)Praying for you and those kids of yours!!

  • debbie says:

    That head makes my stomach flip flop just a little.
    And girl, you have eight long years before you are 40! And 40 rocks in so many ways.

  • Liz says:

    Ouch!! For both of you!! I know how that feels, Gracie broke her arm at 14 months old….How could I have let that happen??

  • Kristin Smith says:

    I can so Seriously relate to this! ๐Ÿ™‚ But you are right…that bumb freaks me out too…I would not have been calm either. I was “seriously” not ready for that photo as I scrolled down! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I hear you about 40 too…I am 35 in a little over a month and THAT is depressing too!
    Thanks for the laugh!

  • Margaret says:

    poor Baby! Seriously.
    I can’t believe that hours later, no knot and no bruise. Glad Chad was there to help calm you down…sorry he got yelled at. lol
    My first reaction to your “40 in eight years” was “smart aleck!” (almost joking.) Don’t freak…remember this: turning 40 hurts a lot less than turning 30. 40 is, after all, the new 30.
    My little Devon(7) and Ashton(6) both have hemophilia. A knot like that would probably require a trip (or two) to the hospital for a factor 8 infusion. If they don’t bleed externally, they bleed internally, and those licks on the head are the worst! (however, a very small cut on the bottom of the foot a few months ago turned into a HUGE deal.)

  • Amanda Rettke says:

    Ha!  You know I am a smart aleck! I am so sorry to hear about your kids dealing with hemophelia!!  What a huge extra weight for you to carry.  Guess God just knew that you would be capable… ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Bethany says:

    You are seriously, fun, funky, crazy, and wildly funny. That’s why I keep coming back. It’s not surprise that seriously is your word. Although, I was beginning to wonder if you still said “to the max.” ๐Ÿ™‚
    I hope you and yours are having a wonderful Christmas season. Hugs!

  • CFMama says:

    Haha, the diapers!! I have sat down and thought of randoms like this too! Maybe I should update it…Like how many hours I’ve sat inhaling second hand nebulizer meds. LOL

  • Genny says:

    That goose egg would’ve freaked me out too… seriously. Poor little guy!

  • Jill Tracy says:

    I would say no need to put “seriously” after the sentence about Palin! I am a fan too–I think it is pretty cool!

  • shannon says:

    this list made smile hugely. i also say seriously more times than should be allowed. we might just be peas in a pod! not only do i say seriously a bunch, i FREAK @ the slightest bump or bruise the kiddies obtain (ps. OUCH! you have one tough guy on your hands, there!) *and* i am so super jealous of the wedding planner’s wardrobe. i talked about that long white coat of hers for MONTHS after seeing the movie. months. you rock, girl!

  • Liz says:

    My head hurts just looking at that egg! OUCH!!! Poor kiddo!

  • kelli says:

    I find that when telling people something about myself I often either preface or follow it up with ‘seriously’, too! Wonder exactly what that says about me??? ๐Ÿ˜‰
    First time to your blog but definitely not my last!

  • Brandie says:

    Seriously I think I say seriously more than anyone I know!! haha great post visiting from Blogher!!

  • tina thompson says:

    i know how you feel. with four boys who all think they are invincible, we see a lot of goose eggs. our local ER thinks we should start our own clinic because we pretty much have already done what they do. we still go to see the dr if we see anything out of the ordinary.
