that's what I feel like right now. the other day I got out my glue gun to glue some ribbon to the back of something my kids made. so I gave them this huge lecture about how they should never touch mommy's glue gun because it's a high temp (my 5 year old has a low temp) and it can burn them very bad. what's the first thing I do? burn myself with the glue!
but now my kids understand the danger lol. I have a nice piece of skin missing from my finger. it matches the cut on my other finger, my toe that's toe nail is loose and purple under it, and the spot I pulled a splinter out of. I think I need to move into a padded room!

Happens to me all the time.  Especially while cooking. I am constantly lecturing my kids about being careful around the oven or stove top while it is on.  The other day, I just finished lecturing my son about the dangers of touching the hot oven door, and what do I do?  I end up touching the oven door and burning my hand. Thankfully, it isn't bad, but I have a nice blister on my palm, that I keep bandaged up.  Ouch.

Ohh Lord woman... you need a ROUND padded room & just to be on the safe side, put yourself in bubble wrap as well. :o) Isn't that the way it works though? Constantly telling our kids to not do something then we turn around and do it.

Tell me about it!  This morning I hurt myself again!  I was doing my 2 year old's hair and the rubber band I was trying to put on her snapped and hit me right in the eye!  Really?  More injuries???
