Heather is big and prego now and we expect Reddin to come any minute. Actually, she is scheduled to be induced this Friday. Yes, the day after Christmas. I am sure he'll love that when older and realizes he got jipped many times because his thrifty parents pulled the old two-fer year after year.
Well, Fall came and went and thankfully Heather kept her footing up until this week. Footing you ask? Yes, footing. I got a call while I was away working. Apparently a prego has an altered center of balance or something 'cause as she was walking in the house from the garage, she tripped and fell... those dang ant terds! Both her and Reddin were fine. I decided not to scold her as I am sure her pride was hurt enough.
Any kids reading, must stop reading right about now. Bye.
This morning we decided to "save some water" so we both jumped into the shower. Not easy and probably not safe with a nine-month prego lady. For some reason the non-slip turtles were doing a great job keeping the shower wall free from slipage. As my dear wife did the final rinse from shaving her legs, she slipped backwards. I am manly (I thought) and attempted to rescue her mid fall. Her back was facing me and I swooped my arms under hers and lifted her to safety. At least that's how I planned it. My unmanly attempt turned into a mini-disaster. She toppled back into me and I slipped and fell as well. She landed on her bum near my toes. I landed on the ground out of the tub with the curtain rod on my head. Water spewing out everywhere. My head hit the door and elbow the toilet paper holder on the wall. Oh yeah, just as we were entering the shower Heather told me how long my toe and finger nails were. It is too bad I didn't cut them sooner 'cause her butt has nasty scrapes from my toes and her back has deep scratches from my fingernails. Sorry baby.
I know there is a lesson to be learned here but I am not quite sure what it is. Please share with me in your comments what could be learned for future water conservation adventures (if there ever are any).
Sorry no pictures in this post.
