As the morning light begins to filter through the clouds and spill across my desk I'm reeling in revelations that came to me during a restless night. Ones that I am going to share with you whether you really care to hear them or not....

-birthday week celebrations while fun can be draining on all involved

-unlike the romance novels if you find yourself falling to the ground your dear husband will not catch you, even when you yelp "I'm going to fall" a half a second before you do. But the sweet, stunned man will help you to your feet afterward and brush you off. And well, isn't the reality of what marriage is really about.

-When taking such a fall in a crowded bowling alley surrounded by children you must expect the story to become an exaggeration. Rest assured there were no babies flying through the air, I have the bruises to prove it. She was safely plopped down on the floor in a sitting position right before my body gracefully flopped to the ground. Little One was slightly irritated over being so unceremoniously placed on the ground, but was not harmed... I on the other hand, well I'll survive.

-Children can get attention overload and when this happens bouts of crying, screaming, and various ugly behavior can ensue.

-That children, no matter how much you love them, are not perfect, they will have issues. But then I realize that as parents we are not perfect and we have some issues ourselves.

-That God definitely has a sense of humor.

Glad your man was there to scoop you up, even if he was a 1/2 second late. ;)

Hope you're feeling better soon, and nice save, Mom! :)

Should I be glad that you didn't post a photo of the bruises!!

Well done Hubby. Just a 1/2 second quicker, and he will officially be a knight in bowling shoes!

Oh no! Women should rule the world - men being half a second behind! LOL

I hope the bruises clear up quickly and the memory makes you smile in the future. If nothing else you have the perfect story to tell the kids boyfriends in the future and something to tell the grandchildren about how Mummy was once a child too!

Big un-birthday hugs.
