Happy Valentine's Day from the Flemletts

This morning was gorgeous! I don't think that I've ever had a white Valentine's day. The crisp white snow and the happy sunshine just combined to make a joyful morning! Not to mention it contrasts nicely with red stiff construction paper Valentines. Max was totally digging on his Iron Man Valentines. He will come home from school hopped up on sugar and I will be worn out from celebrating an even more decadent holiday--Mardi Gras. Loves and kisses to you all.

I'm having a cow!

We had a horrible event this morning. While riding the campus bus home from dropping Max off at school, I tripped on the last step of the bus at my stop and fell on the ground--while carrying Kiz on my back in the backpack. I rolled slow motion-like and then heard a thud as her little head hit the concrete. I had a passerby help take her out so that I could assess the damage, and blood was running out of her nose. I will admit something. I have absolutely no calm when it comes to emergency situations and my babies. I sprinted up the hill to the house and then hyperventilated and cried uncontrollably for several minutes while I tried to clean it up and figure out what was going on. Luckily she just has a little skinned nose and will probably have a nasty bruise tomorrow. Now I can't shake off the guilt that I'm the worst mother in the world. I know that my clutziness was not intentional, but it still sucks! I wish that I had a harry potter wand to magically erase her boo boo.
