My legs are so sore I want to cry. I went to the gym yesterday for a weights class & crap I am out of shape. Today Scoobs was sitting by me on the floor when he jammed his boney little elbow right into my quad. I squealed, "Ow!" and pushed him off. Only to have him look at me & say, "Shake it off, mom."
I guess I need to take my own advice & not be a wimp. But you all know how that hurts when you are sore? Or are you all in shape and have no idea of what I am talking about?
Anyway, that got me to thinking about how I am not very sympathetic when my kids get hurt. I am always of the 'shake it off' approach, but sometimes, I suppose it really does hurt & maybe I should be a little more understanding.
A couple days ago, I got bit by an ant. When was the last time you got bit by an ant? Yeah...I can't remember either. And you know what else I couldn't remember...how bad it hurt. Granted, after one minute the pain was gone, but in that one minute I thought my leg was on fire & I asked my mom for calamine lotion...okay I was kind of kidding, but kind of not. She promptly told me I was being a wimp & to get over it.
I guess the apple doesn't fall from the tree.
And for the record, I think I like the 'shake it off' approach. I mean, we are all going to get hurt over & over again in this life, right? We are going to get hurt physically & maybe worse, emotionally & spiritually & I suppose the sooner we can learn to shake it off & move on the better, right?
No I'm sure. Right.
