Bites & Bruises

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! Today is “Not Me!” Monday, a chance for everyone to be brutally honest about what they have not been doing this week. You can also head over to My Charming Kids to see what MckMama and others have not been up to this week!

(Actually, MckMama’s blog says she’s not feeling up to a “Not Me!” Monday still since Stellan remains in the hospital with bouts of SVT and may have to be flown to Boston to have an ablation on his heart, which is scary on a baby as young as Stellan. However, she is letting her readers still link to their own “Not Me!”s today, so head over there, and see what her readers haven’t been doing this week!)


Yesterday morning, I was heading to the shower to get ready for our Easter brunch, but I had to maneuver through all the opening and closing of doors in order to get there. (We had the doors closed so Béni could only wander through a small portion of our apartment.) This is really a silly story, because of course I made it safely to the shower. I couldn’t have been clumsy enough to open the living room door straight into my forehead. Nope, no siree. And even if I did, I most certainly did not, when asked by John if I was ok, respond with a mixture of laughter and tears “nooooo.” Not me!

Our sweet little Béni is so well behaved, you wouldn’t believe he’s a puppy, and there’s no way he is going through a biting phase. He totally knows what kisses and soft teeth mean, so he would never mix that up with a good ol’ bite. Béni always drops stuff he has in his mouth when we command “drop it,” so there’s no way he refused to drop a small stick while out at his potty spot. Since he dropped it, I certainly did not have to forcefully open his mouth. In the moment I had my thumb in his mouth, he did not decide to clamp down HARD. My thumb did not bleed. Nope, that definitely did not happen.

While on the topic of Béni’s non-biting…
I have a completely flat stomach. There’s no doubt about that. While playing with Béni last night, then, there’s no way he could have bitten my tummy. No way.

What have you not been up to this week?
