OMG, she did WHAT?

Danny picked Morgan up from daycare yesterday.  Since I had to run an errand after school, I called to see what they were up to.  He said he was putting Morgan down for a nap because she was sleepy (I wonder why.  Does it have anything to do with the fact that this kid has been staying up 'til after 10?).  I was like, "Nooo, don't let her sleep!  She'll have us up all night!" 

By the time I got home, they were both knocked out.  I had every intention of waking her as soon as I got there, but when I saw that sweet, peaceful face, I just couldn't.  Well at least not at the moment.  I let her get like a 25- or 30-minute nap, then I woke her up.  And she STILL was up late last night.

Now, I debated putting this next part on the blog.  Since I chose to share my  memory book with you (and I think this is memory-book-worthy), here goes...

Just like usual, I asked DK how Morgan's day was at school.  In his sleepy state, he said, "She was written up and put in Time Out for one minute."  Now, Danny is silly and plays a lot -- especially when I want to be serious -- so I just knew he was being silly.  So I said "promise-promise?"  (which, to us, means "I am dead serious").  And when he said "promise-promise," my jaw dropped to the floor.  "FOR WHAT?"

"For biting," he said.

My jaw dropped to the floor again!

All kinds of things ran through my head in that split second.  I was thinking, "How could that be?  'Biting kids' usually have a biting problem and bite people all the time" (and Morgan doesn't).  Then I remembered when my friend Tanya told me her son was bitten by a kid at daycare.  And I remember thinking, "That's going to be my kid getting bitten one day, and I'll just have to get over it because it happens."  Not ONCE did I ever consider that it'd be my kid doing the biting.

Danny then goes on to tell me that the teachers told him that it wasn't really Morgan's fault.  They were eating lunch, and Morgan's friend stuck her hand in Morgan's mouth (trying to feed her, maybe).  Naturally, Morgan bit down.  So it wasn't a mean bite or even intentional.

But I still felt awful.  It doesn't help that they actually complete an Incident Report and send it home (though I am very thankful that they are so thorough and "official" with those kinds of things). 

When I took her to school this morning, I asked the teachers about it.  They told me the same thing -- that it wasn't the typical, intentional bite.  But I still felt the need to apologize to the kid's parents -- I planned to write a little note on a card to say sorry.  But it's against school policy to share the name of the kid that she bit.  So I guess I have to get over it.  I pray that that kid's parents are not very upset about it, and that I'm the only one it's still bothering. :-(

But I'm going to put it behind me because there's nothing that can be done.  She didn't mean to do it, and I'm hoping that it's not the start of a bigger (biting) problem.  But whew, talk about a surprise when I got home yesterday.

Anyway, today was Day 2 of no crying when I dropped her off (thanks to the breakfast that was in her spot when we got there).  Thank you, Jesus.  She was tired this morning (I had to wake her to get her ready, which I usually don't have to), so maybe she was too tired to cry, LOL.  Either way, I'm glad I didn't have to see my sweet baby cry again.

Jumping to a totally different subject -- well, not really...I recently posted on my Twitter that I wondered when (or if) I'd get baby fever again.  I had it a couple of months ago when there seemed to be babies galore -- new pregnancies, new births, etc., but I haven't since then.  And I'm kind of disappointed because I've always said I wanted all three babies before I was 30.  (And scratch the three part.  That was when I was childless and "rich."  Now I have one baby and I'm poor. LOL.)  I'm disappointed that the desire isn't really there. Now I have no doubt (Lord willing) that I'll have another baby (or at least be pregnant) by the time I'm 30 -- that's 2 1/2 years away.  But I've always wanted them to be close together.  Morgan's almost 16 months...

The reason this has all come to my mind is because in the past few days -- and every day -- I've come across some kind of maternity clothing item in my closet.  And that's crazy because I thought I packed all of that away.  Is this a sign?  Okay, maybe that's a little dramatic.  But maybe it will have an effect on me.  We're really not ready for another baby, but who's ever "ready" for a baby?

Anyway, I hope everyone's had a great week.  It's almost the weekend!  I'm excited because I get to see my dad, sisters, and stepmom this weekend for my dad's birthday (which is actually today).  Then Sunday I hope to come home and doctor on my house.  Enjoy the rest of your week, guys!

  1. Sweet little Morgan couldn't help it. If someone stuck their hand in my mouth I would probably bite down too. Bless her!!
