My DD the Klutz....

Friday, she tripped at school for the third time that DAY, falling off the bleachers. They x-rayed it and confirmed a severe sprain. Today they called me and said it was broken, the radiologist at the hospital said there is a fracture. So today following Fridays adventure, I was back at the clinic with my DD for a boot instead of a splint. At this rate I'll never get intercession done. *Sigh*

Tell you what anonymous, (who wont reveal thier name...) take a walk for a day in my shoes before you judge me. How many kids do you have? I have SIX happy, clean, well adjusted kids. How about yours? Or do you spend all your time posting anonymous rude comments on others blogs?

Look I wasn't passing a judgement, just an observation. You seemed to be belittling your kid for growing and therefore being a bit more clumsy. I've helped raise many of my sisters kids while I waited for my own and yes I have them. I go to random blogs and give my opinion, that's what the comments are fore right? don't like it don't care. That's why it's an opinion. Sorry you think I was judging you, maybe you shouldn't put your kids down on the web and leave it open for discution? what if I was your next door neighbor? whould you still be saying these things about your kids? I do my best as I pray you do, to take care of my children. this isn't a contest to see who's kids are potty trianed first. I took a look at your DD blog too.... Interesting. I think you have some good potential as a writer. Can't say much more than that. haven't read all of your book. only what you posted. (with some grammer puntuation issues according to your blog)

All I'm saying is you get what you give. if you belittle your kids people will belittle you.

What's the old addage "what goes around comes around"

Paulette, the boot is black not pink, it might make someone happy. :) It's the crutches that have got to go! EVERYONE trips over them they are under EVERYONES feet.

EM perhaps you should go and look at my post again. I did not belittle my daughter. She gave herself the name Klutzy not me. I thought she would like to see that I was concerned for her by posting her news. She looks at it at school sometimes :) Besides since when does wishing that I had more time to write not taking care of my kids?

black is cool :D (big smiley)

Evil said...

I looked again....Yup it still says "My DD the Klutz" How am I sapposed to know that your daughter gave herself that Nick. I'm not clarivoient Just Evil. It's not like I know your daughter, maybe you should expect someone to post a comment like mine from time to time when no explination is given? Or you could have replied..Oh sorry anonymous, my daughter gave herself that nick. didn't think someone would take offence. etc....... Sounds like I struck a nerve..... You sure did take offense really fast. by the way I'm sure you want to send me lots of hate mail please snd to: evilmathizar@gmail.com , Or a free copy of that book you are working on for me to read :) hint hint. I'd like to get to start at the beginning with all the details etc.

P.S. I only posted anonymous because I didn't feel like logging in. :)

~paulette said...

maybe i should grab some pop-corn?

Noble M Standing said...

So...you call yourself EVIL and admit to it too. What should anyone that comes across this conversation assume? Troll comes to mind...

Yes my DD gave herself the name Klutz and she doesnt mind the title of the post.

And yes I do get defensive about my kids; I work hard to be a good mom to them.

I'll think about sending you a copy of my book; I am allways looking for honest readers.

I'm with Paulette, I'm grabbing the popcorn!

But this brings up an interesting subject, doesn't it? Not that I mean to be analytical or anything, but I was telling my students how imperfect the written word is and why writers have to say so much to get so little across. Body language communicates a great deal of meaning and without that meaning mis-communication can totally happen.

For example, I thought that "evil" was being sarcastic in a funny kind of way and yet it turns out I was totally wrong. Hmm. And when I saw all of the posts I kind of got a feeling that maybe you guys were just trashing each other because you knew each other, but that doesn't seem to be the case either. Hmmm . . . I feel a blog coming on!

Shanna Blythe said...

Hey . . . so I did actually post a blog on this conversation! Go check it out. And I HATED crutches! Tell your daughter to get better for me. Miss you guys!

Evil said...

So let me get this right now your calling me a troll? I just called it like I saw it. I was wrong, or was I? Name calling is rather childish. I play on the evil cause it's fun for me. It's not who I really am. And Now that your down to name calling, Are you really good to your Kids? I mean if you want to stoop down to calling names it makes me wonder what your really like? As far as your book, I doubt you would actually send it to me. You didn't strike me as the type of person that would like to really get an opinion on something. Just what your friends will be willing to tell you so they don't hurt your feelings or something like that. I did think you had potential I just wanted to read what you had. :) Anywho I'm sorry you think so poorly of me. I really am a really nice person. unless of course people lie to me. but since I tell it like it is, they usaully do too. Sorry your DD what ever that means hurt herself and is on crutches. Life can suck but then you die, so it doesn't matter really :)

I was over at Shanna's blog and she said something that made me look. How things arn't what they seem because of body language etc. (Munch Munch) So Let me get this right. "Evil" came to michelles blog? I thought her blog was "evil" so I don't see the problem. Just Kidding, Evil I think you(munch munch) should be a little more carefull on how you comment, Hey free speech sure. but (munch munch) I think it was a little harsh for right off the bat. however. (munch crunch munch) I think this whole thing could have been easier if michelle just filled in evil a little better(michelle..be the better person i know you are :) ) So anyone for some of this popcorn it's deliciose. :)

I did not call you a troll, I mentioned it because it was a thought in the back of my mind.

However, you have come across to me as some one who likes negative attention. (AKA troll) You use the name Evil, say that it is fun for you, and say you like to call it as it is. Then say you are really a nice person, Who are you? You can't be both.

I gave you very valid reasons not only for the nick name but for my defensiveness of my role as parent and still you come to my blog and argue.

Even if I did call you a name which I didnt, that doesnt make me a bad parent. You are calling me a bad parent because you think I called you a troll. Perhaps you should look at your own actions.

You frustrate me, I'll admit that, but I don't have a bad oppinion of you....yet. If I got to know you, and saw the really nice side of you. You profess to have. I'd consider sending you a rewrite of Dominion Day. But for me the proof is in the pudding. Show me you aren't who you seem to be.

BTW, submitting any of my work to people outside my realm of friends proves that I am open to others oppinion's good and bad. Yeah the honest crits of what is wrog hurts but I am learning with every crit I get back. I am willing to go back to the computer everytime and revise so someday I'll give someone the best I can give and Dominion Day will have a "home"

DD means Dear Daughter.

Wow! This is a lot of response for one paragraph about a klutzy kid! (Love ya DD! I am a klutz too, so I can say that!)

I just can't figure out why "Evil" (assuming this is not Kenievel) is having such a bitch-fest about it. Good hell, it was a comment about the writer's teenage daughter - Evil has obviously never lived with teenagers. Gadzooks people, give it a rest already!

Weston Elliott said...

Oh, and by the way "Anonymous", "EM" or whatever you call yourself - have the guts to post your name if you're going to trash on someone else's blog!

And yes, I mean to be completely rude, thank you very much!

Marilyn said...

Poor DD of yours! I broke my foot 3 yrs ago and I remember how hard and painful it was. My heart goes out to her. It's been awhile since I've checked your blog. Wowsa! I hope it's not bad to say that I had fun reading all the comments on this post. Evil kind of cracks me up. Although I think it's completely normal and fine to say your DD is a klutz. I'm a klutz too and I freely admit it! No shame there-just a part of my life!

Laurel said...

Ok... I will admit I am a KLUTZ!!!!!!!!!! Yes I am the DD of Michelle. Everyone that knows me says that I am a klutz. It is just who I am. :)

Thank you all for your well wishes. I am getting along, but school can be rough. :)

Evil said...

I think every one really got off to a bad start here. Laurel (DD) I'm glad your doing better. I didn't think my big mouth would upset so many people. I sappose that weston is blind I did post my name it's Evil Mathizar. Or are you talking about my actual name not my writing name? Well It has nothing to do with guts or anything else like that. This is my writing name and that's the name I use, I have my reason. So Neener Neener :)~ Anyways. this is my last post to this particular sequence. :) so everyone can just sigh some relife.

not everyone got off to a bad start. Just the ones who don't think before they speak.
