by her chinny chin chin...

i think i just lost the day.

esmé opened up her chin on the kitchen counter. the same counter that has a starring role in the esme! get off the counter before you crack in half! chronicles.




poor thing sobbed only when she saw her blood. but then brightened back so fast i thought her delirious.

it looks like strawberry juice, doesn't it? pure wonder filling those peter pan blues.

i think someday she'll be an artist. or at least always on the lookout for beauty.




full disclosure? her next documentable sentence sounded an awful lot like you really shouldn't have let me break, mommy. perhaps someday she'll be a travel agent and send all her clients on a guilt trip.

i will spend the rest of today making sure no more strawberry juice spills.

hey. i think i just gained a day.

catch you later, friends. and while i have you here...why didn't you tell me she was less tinkerbell and more peter pan? it hit me the other day when she was dressed in green tights and playing in the leaves. must've laughed for five minutes. also. i can read is a goldmine for textish inspiration.

Aww, poor thing! Hope she's not in too much pain.

Awesome pictures. I have to send that second one to my boyfriend (a physics teacher) -- it'll totally make him smile.

wow. You are awesome. I just found you via Simple Lovely and I.Am.So.Glad. You are so talented and being the mom to a 5 year old little girl, I want her to grow up to be a strong and healthy and smart woman who loves being herself. That is probably what I want for her more than anything else. Just to like who she is and to know that she is wonderful. Thanks for putting it out there!

You are a beaker full of Awesomium!

Melissa de la Fuente said...

Oh, hun! I am SO sorry....poor little thing, poor mama. I hope she is ok, did she need stitches? You are totally AW and I adore that and the quote above it. Thinking of you all and a big hug to you both!

How did I miss this? Poor sweet esmé. I hope her chinny chin chin is all healed up by now! P.S. I often have a little Peter Pan prancing about in my household as well...something I'll never get tired of.

I remember Sloane did something once and got hurt. The first words out of her mouth were, "Moooom!!" in a very accusatory tone. When I asked her how that happened to be my fault my own mother just laughed and said, "Oh honey. From now on, everything will be your fault. It's called motherhood."
