Barefoot & Pregnant & Consequences ~ as journaled by Isabela

isabela the journalist

Through one squinted, teary eye, I noticed her in the exam room chair scribbling in her journal, seemingly unbothered by my restrained mini-screams as the thing was being removed. You know, I'm pretty certain she giggled a little when I let out a wince as the local anesthetic (aka flaming needle of fire) went into the bottom of my foot. Call it pain pride, but I was sure to let the doctor know that I have indeed endured numerous natural child births. In fact, I think with less noise.

Anyone remember this (from waaaaay back)? And how funny that she journaled it this time, whereas last time I made a play-by-play illustrated story for you.

And what did I do as soon as we got home? Took off my shoes.

Do I learn? No. I don't.

I'm fine, thanks for asking. Dumb. But fine.

xo,Anna

  2. Barefoot is the best~especially when pregnant. And I hope your foot heals quickly and doesn't give you anymore trouble.

  4. Awe, feel better soon. I too had a foot accident this weekend. Mine involed a metal John Deere Tractor toy. Thanks son I now have a 3 inch slice on the arch of my foot:)

  5. I feel your pain.

    Ok, as a natural childbirth survivor, I must confess that just last week while getting a Yellow Fever vax ... I CRIED. Seriously. 40 years old. and big ol' crocodile tears rolled down my cheeks as I bit my lip. ????

    DUDE, it HURT! I totally understand the needle of flaming fire thing.

  6. Oh my gosh! OoooUCH!!!

    I was the exact same way when I sliced the bottom of foot open with a seam ripper. I had the "flaming needle" as well and was waaaay more vocal and loud than I am in labor and I do them natural too.....

    so sorry hun.

  7. Oh dang, that sounds nasty!!! Hope you feel better... and find some flip flops to protect those feet!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Do I need to send you some slippers with heavy soles to protect you from yourself?

  9. I've had the flaming needle of fire twice myself! Thanks to a wood splinter from our hardwood floors....the first guy didn't get it. Grrr.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh sweeties that's horrible! I had a tick piece of glass in my knee once. So painful! Some one needs to get you some soft felted slippers.

    I'm sewing my daughter a lovely quilt with a bunch of your fabric in it. She'll be 3 in April, it's a big surprise for her (that and a real "big" girl bed). The colors make me happy as I sew.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Had pretty much the exact same thing done to me once. Felt like the flipping needle was gonna touch bone or something.

    glad you survived!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ohhhhh ouch! I do believe barefoot is the only way to travel. But, one does have to be a little more careful! I love the scribblings ...so very cute and so very memorable.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ouchie!!!! That had to hurt!!! Poor you! I guess wearing shoes is a must at your house! Any stitches?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry! I love your daughter's journal writing. It looks just like the way my daughter writes and spells. Such a sweet and special stage in writing development.

    I hope you have a quick recovery. :~)

    ReplyDelete
  15. No fun! I hope you are feeling more cumfortebell now. I never wear shoes in the house- it's just wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  16. OUCH! I'm so sorry.... major clutz here too, I think we just get so busy & preoccupied we don't pay attention! Hope it heals quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ouch... sorry to hear about your accident. Heal fast!

    The most painful needle I've ever had was in the arch of my foot, so I know what you went through!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Poor you! I really want to know what our feet get so HOT when we are pregnant?? It is strange but true!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sorry about your foot, I would DIE if I had to wear shoes inside...I hate to wear them outside too, but I never wear them in the house so I feel for you! P.S. when is your baby due?

    ReplyDelete
  21. How DO we pass babies through impossibly small 'openings' and yet suffer agonies over cuts, bruises, and dentist drills??!! BTW, my girfriend once stepped on an innocent, disposable razor and ended up severing a tendon in her toe.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Aren't your battle scars supposed to be in places people can SEE them so you can play the sympathy card? But no shoes is indeed the only way to go!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Awww, she's a right cutie documenting your mishaps. Bless. Could I see journalism in her future? Hope your fully recovered :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. but walking bare foot is so cumfortebell.
    I'd do that the whole year round if it weren't freezingly cold here in winter.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ouch! I remember that happening to my mother when I was a little girl. She calmly asked my father pull it out with tweezers. He did, but I was horrified!

    Hope your tootsies feel better soon:)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ouch, ouch, ouch!!! I hope you are feeling better! Keep those shoes on!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think you need to find flip flops you love in lots of colors and wear them! LOL! Seriously I hope it all heals up quickly and doesn't hurt so much now that its out.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sorry to hear about your accident. I used to go barefoot all the time, and still love to. However after three situations in the past three years, I have started wearing comfy sox and slippers more.

    One: I walked quickly around a corner in the house, and caught my little toe on a box. Broke the toe. Set it myself in shock. Took myself to the emergency room. Nothing left for them to do besides tape it.

    Two: painful plantar fasciitis - inflammation of the large, flat tendon that runs on the bottom of the foot. Felt like a knife was being jammed up my heel bone. Went to the podiatrist, had the foot taped, and had my chiropractor adjust my arch. Healed in 3 months instead of the predicted 12.

    Three: Moved a La-Z-Boy without shoes on. Pulled it over my big toe, which pulled up the nail. Yes, like a little car hood, sticking up. Oh MAN! Jim drove me to the hospital, where they stuck me FOUR times to numb the toe and tack down the nail.

    German house slippers = my best friend.

    Hope you heal quickly, and best of luck. Your blog is beautiful.

  29. I had to laugh because my kids keep journals and write the funniest thing about each other and me and their dad. Sometimes I don't laugh as hard as others...if you know what I mean.:-) Hope you are healed soon.

    ReplyDelete
  30. yy---ouch---ers! It makes me cring just thinking of it.
    Your daughter is so funny! I adore the funny little drawing to go with it. What a doll.
    I love your work, writing and home. Thank you for sharing all you do. It is always a pleasure to come in for a visit. :)
    P.S. I so would meet you if I could! I am a mother of three (Faith almost ten, Nelson five and Beau two), a sister to seven (not included the married ins) and SIL to eleven (not including all the others!), and auntie to twelve (SO FAR!). he-he! So I understand your life to a tiny extent.
    Hugs to you!!!

  32. Having weekly injections in my knee and very sympathetic to you on the Youch! factor....though so envious of the pregnancy and adorable nurse/assistant. Best to you. xoC

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ouch!!!!!! Wishing you a speedy recovery! Hmmm.... the thick sole slippers sound great, or maybe steel toe boots? hehe :) Hang in there!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've been through natural childbirth- that is some piece of glass! LOL! I was just telling my MIL how clumsy I was when I was pregnant... seemed to run into things, drop things, burn myself, scratch every limb... You name it, I did it! I'm blaming the change of equilibrium. It's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL! Hope your foot feels better soon!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I am so barefoot all the time - and I'm pregnant. :) I hope your foot is better soon!

    Come on over to my blog and enter yourself in the giveaway I'm having -you just might win and maybe that will take your mind off of the pain in your foot! :)

    Happy Thursday!

  36. Oh, *hugs*! How awful to get glass in your foot! I am always barefoot too, pregnant or not. When I was pregnant (and overdue) I dropped a glass of raspberry tea that broke and sprained my ankle badly.... (luckily) somehow I missed the glass on the floor. But it totally sounds like something I would do.

    While you are healing, maybe you'd enjoy a peek on Digsmagazine's website at the new house tour they are currently featuring of my flat! I give you & your lovely fabrics a shoutout as they are heavily featured in my bright green bathroom. Here is the html:

  37. Just came across your lovely, lovely blog. I had a large piece of glass stuck in my foot once. Didn't realise it was there (as it happened when I was blissfully dancing the night away) until the hospital doctor produced it - Saying "what a beauty!", embarassingly I thought he meant me until I saw he was holding up a 2inch shard.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh, you poor, poor thing! There is nothing quite like pain in your feet. I, too, have been through natural childbirth (twice) and still say the worst pain I've ever had was when I had to have liquid nitrogen put on a plantar wart on the bottom of my foot. I thought I would die!
    Hope your foot heals quickly!

    ReplyDelete
  39. No way. You've got to be kidding me. Your poor feet.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love this. My son is 5 1/2 and does the same thing. He has a paper and pen in hand and journals everything and writes stories. Once he lost his favorite pen that my dad gave him (Nonno in Italian) and he wrote a note about it and said "I have to have faith in God that I will get a new pen" and he drew a sad face and a picture of pen. Of course it was in his own spelling and writing just like your daugther's. It makes me melt. :) It's hanging on my Fridge. Love you all!
    P.s. Hope your booboo is better.
