not so nice looking legs

So I think I need a temporary restraining order on my kids.......

With the weather becoming so nice outside I have been excited to wear some shorts and capris. Shaving my legs this morning I realize how bruised up my legs are! I always know I have at least 1. Well, this morning I decided to count 1....2....3...4...5.... 5 bruises.

From what? I'm not quite sure. But I do know that they are 90% from Gabe and Nolan and 10% from my clumsiness. They like to run the car door into my thighs, run their play cars into my ankles, run their ride on bulldozer thing into my shins, use their books to get my attention by driving them into the back of my knees. This is just a few incidences that I can think of off hand of the some of the bruises I have gotten in the past.

After thinking for a bit on why I am bruising so much I started thinking that maybe they are marking their territory.....you know "this is my mom, don't touch" Maybe they are done out of love............okay, now I am just trying to make light of things.

But all in all at least when I am putting on my shorts or sitting on the couch and see my bruises on my legs, I can think of how much my kids love me and that I am very blessed to be in their presence when they only want me to read them a book or when they drive over my toes really hard with their car because it was "only a speed bump". But if they keep driving their toys in my legs any harder I may have to fill out some paper work for at least a 2 week restraining order to get my legs looking somewhat nice again............do you think they have paper work like that? (I am being sarcastic) :)

The price we pay to participate in this thing called motherhood. Good thing it's worth it.
