When trying to find an outfit for our family photoshoot (Yep already planning our outfits. I want to do pictures on the beach this year and I know that summer clothes are quickly leaving stores, so I needed to get on it), I ordered a bunch of dresses from Nordstrom and prayed that one of them worked. Well I did find THE dress, but I ordered this one on a whim, I've been wanting a lace dress, and I thought, why not. I found that the white in this wasn't going to match the white in Baby Fox's outfit I had already picked out, but decided I liked it so much I was going to keep it. When Mini Fox's party came alone, I thought it was a bit fancy, so I un-fancied it by pairing it with some casual sandals and only a bracelet. I thought any necklace I paired it with was going to be too much. Why not add some red lips to go with the ladybug theme.
So this pictures brings me to my next subject, Mom Mode.
|That smallish bruise on my calf...have NO idea where that came from...I'm clumsy, did I ever tell you that?|
Believe it or not, this bruise is 2 weeks old!
I was taking a shower and was putting lotion on my legs (this is when I find most of my bruises) and saw this huge contusion of a thing. It was the type of bruise that has a hard lump in it, ya know the kind? And I thought, where the HELL did I get this?! You would think I would remember getting something so big and it hurt, boy did it hurt! I tried running down the hallway, and boy did it hurt, I was worried I wasn't going to be able to participate in my 5K.
I thought long and hard about where I could have possibly gotten it. From what I can guess, I got it during Baby Fox's scooter accident? I remember trying to hold Baby Fox, push Mini Fox in the stroller and I had put the scooter on top of the stroller, trying to manage it all, and I remember the scooter falling off the stroller. I do not remember it hitting me in the leg, but it must have. I think I vaguely remember it grazing my leg? Nothing hard enough to create this monstrous contusion!
Enter Mom Mode, you know the mode when all reason goes out the window and your only concern is your kid(s). You'll do anything and everything to keep them safe. I was so concerned about Baby Fox and trying to figure out if we needed to go the ER and calm him down, that I didn't even realize I had been hurt in the process. Good to know that if my kid is hurt that I can get hurt and not know it, the adrenaline pumping through helped I'm sure. That my first instinct is for the well being of my children and to make sure they are safe first and foremost.
When/have you experience Mom Mode?
