My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

Well, the heat finally broke....

.....Unfortunately, it's possible that my youngest got "broke" too. **sigh**

So yesterday as she was busy, busy, busy playing with a friend who was over. And running.... And giggling...

I was on the phone with a friend and heard what sounded like a bowling ball bouncing down the stairs. Uh-oh...

Stairs 1 - Sporta (youngest) 0

Her wrist looked fine last night - no extensive dramatics or tears. We iced it. She bandaged it up. All of the digits are working. But today? Apparently it still hurts like hell. Crap. So we are off to get it looked at.

So while I am attending to this bit of pure parental joy, here is today's Brain Bender....


What one three-letter word can be placed in the blanks below to make four different words?

  • _____DOR
  • _____CEL
  • _____DID
  • _____DLE


So like usual, the answers will appear in the comments later. Keep your fingers crossed for Sporta! (Well, not while you are trying to type, but you know what I mean.....)

Update: Rachel over at Pereiraville is today's official smartypants with her can-do attitude (and very cute orange skirt).

In other news, Sporta is slated to see the doctor in about an hour. She managed to go with me to run some errands and enjoyed Chinese food for lunch while we waited for the doc's office to call. I am hoping it's nothing serious...
