Tenacious is one of the best words I have in my pencil box of words to describe two year old human children.

No matter the consequences or how dangerous something might be, the promise of fun takes over and their mushy brains stop functioning in a normal human way.

Think pleasure seeking slug…except faster and with less slime.

Cara has a side table in her room where her night light and radio reside. During the day, though we’ve told them again and again ad nauseum not to do this, Cara and Oliver pull the drawers out of the side table and use the shell as a stove.

My kids also have an annoying habit of being best friends one minute and viscously attacking each other the next minute. Since I didn’t grow-up with siblings, I assume [hope] this is normal.

In the midst of one of those knock-down-drag-out fights, the top of Oliver’s head made out with the corner of one of the drawers. Just for fun, the cut decided to bleed all over Ollie’s forehead and then my shoulder.

Once the blood was cleaned off, he had a 1/4″ cut that didn’t require anything other than a kiss.

This makes head injury #3 for Oliver and he’s just about to turn two.

I’m starting to think we should have told people to buy him helmets instead of clothes.

  1. OUCH!!!! <- This word always looks funny to me when I type it. Like it's misspelled or something. Weird. Poor Ollie's head.

  2. Oh no! I hope he was not freaked out with the sight of blood. My brother has twin boys, and I just know for a fact that these things are hard to prevent. I hope Oliver’s better now.

  3. The friends and then enemies thing is totally normal, even (as I can attest) for twins. Head injuries, too. It’s amazing any of us make it past the age of 5, really.

  4. Ditto Karl’s comment about the friends and then enemies. There were no two people on earth that I simultaneously loved and hated more than my siblings. And that didn’t stop until about age 20. You’ve got a long way to go.
