Atomic Bombshell


Long Life

October 10th, 2010

Our baby boy is back to his normal self again. Thanks for all the tips and well wishes. As a result we now have a few new tricks up our sleeves for when it happens again. Ah, the painful business of building immunities.

Speaking of the mini ninja being himself, have I ever mentioned how he goes totally bonkers when either of us use a computer? This kid will go all out to get his hands on laptops, cell phones, cameras, or any other electronic devices. In fact, by the time this kid was about ten months old he knew how to get through the initial lock screen on our iPhones.

And woe be it unto you if you have the nerve to withhold such a device from his destructive little paws. You will hear a shriek that you thought died off along with the pterodactyls of long ago. This kid cracks me up, but I thought you should know what I’m up against when it comes to updates.

Read on for Day 6 of 30 Days of Truth
Something I Hope I Never Have To Do

Don’t like to mention this so close on the heels of a high-fever scare with my son, but this is thirty days of truth, not thirty days of the next best thing, so here goes: I hope we never have to to bury someone before their time.

This goes for my husband who is six years my junior, my younger brother, my sister in law, all of my cousins (I was the firstborn of all the grandchildren on both sides of the family), and of course, my children. When I think about how much I love these people and how devastated I would be to lose them at a too-young age, it frightens me to think of how poorly I would handle it.

In my heart, I believe that God knows better than I do, and that if He chose to take someone at a time that I felt was too early, that the problem would be on my end, not His. But it would hard not to be bitter, and quite possibly a little cuckoo, until I worked through some issues. Honestly, I don’t think I’m going to handle it very well when the generation before me goes, but I need to be prepared, because it’s a fate that none of us will escape.

I don’t know how to prepare myself for it, or brace myself, or if that is even possible. Maybe like so many times in the past I’ll be surprised by the strength and support that shows up just in time when the situation arises, but still… It’s something I hope I never have to face.

    That picture is so cute! It sounds like you have a future gadget geek on your hands. Start saving now. 😉

    @Friglet: For reals! This kid already has an iPhone of his own… And he’s quite attached to it.

    My BFF Nadine’s daughter has this LOUD shriek that will make your skin crawl… like a high pitch dolphin cry. It cracks me up!

    Hello again! I am a little out of the loop on your AB blog; I have some catching up to do. I’m glad to see you’ve got it going again (I switched from my MB blog to a freebie).

    I was too much of a wuss to be serious with this day’s assignment, but if I were to be serious and answer the question without lightening up the situation, this would be my answer.

    @Keri: Thanks for letting me know about the changes to your blog! I’ve been missing out because my link to your feed was an old inactive one. All fixed! Will catch up soon.

    Losing my husband and children would send me into an institution.
