Real parenthood part 2

by

So, level with me. How many times a day do you hear yourself say, ‘Ooh, sorry, I just punched you in the face.’ Because it happens here a lot.

I am always turning around and somehow knocking kids to the floor with my mighty hips. Or swinging my arms and somehow smacking my hand into their face. Or, my personal guilt-inducing favourite, when they dart in front of me and I end up KNEEING THEM IN THE BACK and forcing them to fall onto the floor.

I know it can’t just be me. Right?

    ‘Oh sorry, just grazed your head on the doorframe as I carried you through it’ (though I can’t account for wiggling). And a variety of getting in the way when he’s running sending him flying over my freakishly large feet. Yup, you’re not alone.

    You are not alone.

    My son got so used to me banging his head against random walls and door ways, that he’d instinctively lean in while I was carrying him so as to attempt to avoid it. Now, at age 3, he still ducks when I carry him, but has never done so for anyone else. Apparently I have intermittent depth perception…

    I also regularly bang his head against the car while attempting to extract him (often while he’s sleeping, but sometimes when he’s awake and wanting to be carried). It’s a testament to how often this happens – and how hard his head is – that it never seems to bother him. The last time it happened, he gave me a serious look, then smiled and said “Oh, mom, you’re so silly”.

    Indeed.

    mom who regularly bashes children on account of them being smaller than me and in the way – present and accounted for! I also have problems with the in/out of the car and doorways too.

    All. the. time. This is my life. I am constantly hitting, knocking down or scratching Lily. It’s crazy.
