The amazing boo-boo attracting girl...

Awwww...

It's Mo.

Man.

This little girl is so darned sweet and now she has a little cast-like thing on her finger...

Prepare to say, "Oh poor baby" and "Awwww..."




She tried picking up her Daddy's weights and a 50 pound one squished her finger. And she had to get stitches. And this little green finger protector.

Two months, two injuries.

She needs to slow down...she's giving me a lot of gray hairs.

When I asked her if the stitches looked disgusting she said, "Gwamma, I prefer the word hideous. Hid - EEE - ous. For real Gwamma. This is really disgusting under here."

I had to laugh.

And then I had to hug her some more.

She is so darned sweet.

Sigh...

I dedicate this sweet post to Mike in memorium for a life well lived and a man well loved.

Good Morning Lovely Lady,

Please accept my heartfelt condolences sweet Jenny. I'm sorry I didn't know enough about Mike, he sounds like a phenomenal human being, and God knows there aren't enough of those around. I'm sorry for your pain and loss, and if you could forward this on to his family, I would appreciate it. You are one of the sweetest, most heart-touched ladies I've ever met, and I thank you, again, from the bottom of my heart for allowing me the honor of meeting and spending time with your precious grand-daughters.

God Bless,
Meri

I Mo feels better quickly and that her finger no longer looks hideous.

I went back and read your post about Mike, too. Your granddaughter is very special and sweet.

Have a wonderful week, Jenny. La

Awww, poor finger... Mo seems like quite the trooper, though, especially with that cast on her finger. Hope she gets better soon!

Karen S. said...

I love and envy how your little granddaughter thinks and speaks! She must read your column! ha ha !Very precious.....!

Cheryl D. said...

She's so precious! My daughter hurt that finger once and wore a HUGE splint on it. My husband and I, having the maturity of 8 years olds, had a blast taking a lot of photos of my daughter giving us the finger!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

What a sweet doll! So glad she is OK. Hid-EEE-ous! Too cute.

Amy said...

What a sweetie pie that little Mo is!

Allie said...

She is sooooo cute! And I can hear her talking to you! Hey, I also wanted to tell you I made a baby zippy for the one coming in April! I still love making zippys!!!

Just so sweet and smart...praying Mo's finger heals quickly. Hugs

Pondside said...

Oh dear - I hope that as she gets older she stops attracting the owies!

Ames said...

Poor poor Mo! She deserves a big hug!I guess curiosity got the best of her gwammaw.
Gray hairs? With six grandsons the good lord took pity on me and gave me one humongous streak of gray on the left side of my head. It must be an inch and a half wide. Good thing is I can do the male comb over and noone can tell! :D~Ames

Busy Bee Suz said...

I prefer hideeeeous too. And lots and lots of hugs. :)

Marlene said...

She is so cute!! Poor little thing!

Judie said...

There is notheing better than being a hands-on gwamma! Even when she forgets about that finger being squashed, you will always remember!!

When our Gracie was around 3 or 4, I asked her to put the silverware on the table for dinner. "I can't!" she said, "I'm allergic to knives!"

Amy said...

Oh she is cute! Really, I love the way little kids use big words. Adorable! And the poor thing! She certainly knows the meaning of pain. She should try moving on to a new emotion now. Sheesh!

Sue said...

I hope her hideous injury is soon demoted!
And I'm so sorry to hear about your friend, Mike.

Hugs to both you AND your cute granddaughter.

=)

Jennifer said...

poor thing. :(
that is one of my biggest fears, really, is having a kid that just hurts themselves all the time...
i mean, i'm not gonna' be a parent that freaks her kid out of doing anything because of it, i just know i would be really scared if my kid did something like that.
