let down...

It had already been 'one of those days'... after a heroic effort on my part to actually have a bath, the smiley, cute little baby peed all over us both... After i got us all changed, Gagey spilled a big cup of water all over me & i had to make the marathon journey up the stairs to change again... Then Gagey fell & got a horrible swollen eye.
Enough already, i thought...
But no...
Then Peyton went for a bike ride with her friend & after an unfortunate seat malfunction, she put her teeth through her lip. Her friend's mama phoned me & as she was telling me that Peyton was hurt, i looked down & my shirt was soaking wet.
It's amazing, isn't it, how our mama bodies were made to empathise, & to comfort - to protect & to love our little ones. She got a ride home & her little hurting self found it's way to my arms. i think it helped me as much to hold her, as it helped her to be held.
This world is just full of pain, isn't it? Big ones... little ones... Big lips, little black eyes...
i'm almost ready to break out the bubble wrap...
Almost...
