So, I'm sure everyone who has ever raised children can sympathize with the frequent attacks of "gravity testing" that is part of the growing-up process. Am I right? Kids fall down A LOT! Muffin is no exception.
My daughter was frantically chasing after a tiny super-bouncy ball when she tripped on a random pocket of air and landed on her face. Thankfully she survived relatively unscathed. However, she did look around first to see if there was an audience for her performance before launching into the "I've just killed myself" wail of pain.
I was immediately reminded of an episode of Creature Comforts. Have you seen that show? It used to be on CBS, now it's moved to Animal Planet. I've got my T-Faux programmed to record it every time it comes on because it's FREAKING hilarious and apparently based upon actual interviews with real people. Here's the clip (thanks Youtube!) that reminded me of my Muffin:
It's probably wrong that I pointed at her and said "FACE PLANT!" but she didn't seem to mind. In fact, she stopped crying and asked, without a trace of tears, "Mama, what's that? What's a Face Plant?" Guess it wasn't so serious after all!
