Klutziness Kraziness!

It's that time of the week--time to link up to Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday. This week, we're on the letter K! It's so hard to believe that we're already almost halfway done with the alphabet! Where does the time go? This time around, K is for klutziness.

I've blogged about this before, but for some odd reason, kids on the spectrum happen to be a bit klutzy. They have a hard time with coordination and with knowing where their body parts are. In addition, my daughter has weak trunk muscles, so she's not athletic. In addition, both her father and I happen to be pretty klutzy as well. So, the deck is pretty stacked against her!

It's been a tough few weeks in our household. My daughter hurt her little pinkie toe in gymnastics a couple of weeks ago. I think she might have broken it. It's the same toe she probably broke back in the fall. In gymnastics also. During the past couple of weeks, she's re-injured that same toe 2 or 3 times.

The other night, my daughter was playing on her bed with my husband. At one point, she pushed her body back, not realizing that she was on the edge of her bed. She fell backwards off the bed doing a pretty cool back flip. It was one of the scariest moments of my life though. Thankfully, she wasn't injured.

I think I might have mentioned that we took the training wheels of my daughter's bike, and she did a pretty good job riding it. We took her to a deserted parking lot so she could ride her bike around. Somehow, she managed to ride her bike into my parked car--the only object in the whole parking lot! Luckily, she wasn't hurt in that incident! Unfortunately, I videotaped the incident from too far away, so we can't submit the footage to "America's Funniest Home Videos."

Now, where did I put the bubble-wrap?


  1. Awww, so glad she wasn't hurt, but darn I would have liked to see the video.

  2. Perhaps you should put the training wheels on the bed. :o) I'm glad she wasn't hurt.

    Have a great day! La

  3. I hope she didn't break her toe. It is always hard to know with toes. Yikes! I can't believe she hit your car.

  4. Those toe injuries hurt! Hope it's feeling better. Sounds lucky she didn't hurt herself in those other escapades!

  5. Poor thing. Bodies are so unpredictable and hard to control.

  6. I can relate...I have the "klutzy" gene also...


  7. No fun being a klutz.

    I know from personal experience...


  8. Oh I wish you could submit that video. Sounds hilarious. Glad no one was hurt!

  9. Uh oh. I might need to be checked. I am forever falling and walking into stuff. Yikes!

    This link made me smile AND think!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
