The Score So Far…


Pregnancy Induced Ultra-Klutziness: 4
Me: 0

1. So far, in the course of less than two weeks, I’ve broken several things. Last week, a bowl jumped right out of my hand, and smack, landed on the floor and shattered.

2. This week, I banged a bowl on our lovely granite counter tops while attempting to put it in the dishwasher, and smash, it cracked into three large pieces.

3. Last night, I was getting out a water pitcher for some ladies I was having over, and dinged it on my glass measuring cup. I still haven’t found the scrap of glass yet. I’m sure I’ll step on it, though.

4. And finally, this morning, I don’t even know how it happened, but I knocked a glass over and it broke into a million pieces on the counter top (again).

What’s a girl to do? I think I’m going to pad our house and pad myself. At hubby’s recommendation, I’m also going to resist the urge to operate heavy machinery or climbing any ladders. Also, I’m to avoid flying on the trapeze and tight rope walking.

And, while I’m at it, I might pad #1, too, because she has been refusing to take a nap for the last 2 hours and I’m at my whits end!!!

  1. Please tell me that you cracked the bowl and not the granite countertop. That would be bad!

    Why doesn’t the whole family use Izzy’s sippy cups? Then, nothing will break or leak. Not sure how your guests would respond….but you could let them drink straight from the tap!

  5. Oh this was so me when prego with Anya. If it was glass, it was going to break, and nearly sever my toe!

    Hang in there, and yes, padding EVERYONE doesn’t seem that unreasonale. 🙂

  13. When I was pregnant…we always did some MAJOR home renovation…with my son we completely remodeled the kitchen–complete with new cabinets and with my daughter we added on to our house. My husband said that he should have learned the 1st time-DON’T REMODEL WHEN YOU ARE PREGNANT!! I was either crying or yelling at everyone!! LOL

  14. You might want to invest in some plastic cups and paper dishes.

  15. Girl..be careful!! I was the same way though..I agree with Rach, maybe plastic dishes should be used for the duration of “Sampsons” cooking time!!

  16. I loved it when I could blame it on pregnancy.

    Messy House

  17. I’m not pregnant and I’m a complete clutz! I hate it when things jump out of my hands and break themselves. :o)

  18. I was incredibly clumsy to when I was pregnant. I was always dropping things or stunning my toes on furniture. I totally sympathize with you. It’ll get better.

  19. OH NO!!!! You poor girlie pie!!!! I HATE when I break something.. GRRRRR…

I am so clumsy that I spranged my ankle and was on crutches and fell going down some steps with the crutches and yes…sprang my other ankle! Two sprang ankles at the same time….yea that was fun….I was not even prego! OOOOKKKK so now I hope you are laughing at me!

  23. oh man! I totally had Prego Brain when pregnant with Luke too. except mine was forgetting everything. one time I walked out of the house with no shoes on…got in my car and started to drive away to go to the store. Luckily I realized I had no shoes on as soon as i hit the driveway…but still!
