It’s not nice to hit

It’s never nice to hit but it’s hard to be mad when an uncontrolled movement is the cause of the hit.

This morning, Emily was really giddy.

I love giddy Emily. It makes for a fun morning.

She ran to the kitchen to grab her phone to check on her “pet hotel” game and ran back to jump in my bed.

Daddy was calling her for breakfast so she was even more excited.

As she flopped around and tried to hide under the blanket to escape daddy; secretly hoping he was coming to catch and tickle her… She elbowed me!

Yes, you read that right.

For the first time in my life I took an elbow to the face. Left side, right in between my jaw, ear and eye.

Holy cow that was painful!

I screamed in pain. Not at Emily directly, just a generic pain scream.

That did make Emily run out of the room quickly and sit down for breakfast!

I’m lucky, I didn’t turn blue but 13 hours later… I am still in some discomfort. The left side of my face is really not happy and slightly blue’ish… I’ve had a headache all day and my stomach has been acting up all morning.

I’m guessing my child gave me a mild concussion….

And that is something I never thought I would say.

Look at her, she doesn’t look like the type of girl to elbow her mom… Or does she? 😇😈

  4. Over the years I have had my glasses bent, my head elbowed, my feet trod upon (amazing how heavy those little ones are), been pinched and even (rarely) bitten. But in all those cases, I recognized that she certainly wasn’t doing it to hurt me. It was an accident or her only way of expressing her frustration. Hope you feel better tomorrow.
