Fair Animals

Two posts in one day! Thanks goodness there's a fair in town and plenty to blog about!

Lauren and Daddy holding a baby quail.
I'm including this picture not because it's cute, but only to tell you that I won't be winning any Mother of the Year awards this year -and I know I was so close! Notice the band-aid on Lauren's thumb...she also has one on her left hand. So, this morning, I changed out the blade on my razor, and being what I thought was a good mother, put the razor blade way back on our bathroom counter - and not in the garbage down closer to Lauren's level. All was good, until I left Lauren on the counter while I was fixing her hair to get some toothpaste so she could brush her teeth. In the 10 seconds it took me to turn around to Jeremy's sink and get the toothpaste, Lauren had put her toothbrush down, found the razor blade, picked it up, and managed to cut both of her thumbs! Thankfully, they weren't bad cuts, just very superficial, but enough for both of them to start bleeding. She never even noticed them hurting - she didn't start crying until I jumped over and yelled because she had them. Ahh, the joys of toddlerhood!

I love this picture! Check out the bravado of the goat that's sleeping! I'm guessing it doesn't notice the muzzle on the goat it happens to be sleeping on. I'm not sure I'd be so bold as to sleep on its back, but kudos to the goat for being so brave!
