Faith was ready to go down for her nap at 8am, so I picked her up to carry her upstairs. I completely forgot that we put up a baby gate at the bottom of the stairs (we put it up on Saturday) and I rammed my foot into it pretty hard. I thought it was a just a normal stubbed toe, so I just stepped over it and walked upstairs and put Faith in her crib.
Then I walked back downstairs and grabbed a quick snack (don't you snack to nap?) and as I was sitting and eating some cereal, I noticed that my foot felt...sticky. First, I thought I stepped in something, so I picked up my foot and looked at it. I didn't step in something, my foot was all bloody because I am special enough to cut my foot on a BABY gate. Something designed to keep babies safe...and to injure the mothers? I cut one of my toes on the underside and no, I have no idea how that even happens.
It gets better. We have white carpeting on the stairs. So I walked up and down the stairs while bleeding. I also walked on the wood floors and all over the kitchen (which I just mopped yesterday). So instead of taking a nap, I spent some time scrubbing the carpet and walking around with a paper towel looking for my own blood tracks all over the house. I finally finished and went upstairs to lay down and ten minutes later, Faith started making noises. No nap for me!
I'm pretty sure I didn't break a toe, but even if I did, it doesn't really matter because I have tape here. I might tape them before I run tomorrow just to be on the safe side since one of them is a little swollen.
|Geez Mommy, be careful|
|I bet I can beat this guy|
|Look how much fun he's having!|
Poll: Can cleaning my own blood out of the carpet count as my Lenten cleaning today? I'm thinking yes.
