My Superpowers

This is my arm, as of yesterday.  I fell down the stairs while I was carrying Lily, because a certain dog was on the landing and I didn't see her.  Because of my Mom superpowers, I did not fall all the way down, and Lily was unhurt, and I didn't break anything.  But I have these horrible bruises on my arm, from where I hit the wall and the wrought iron railing.  Squish!  It looks really awful, and yeah, it hurts. But then I have to think that it could have been a lot worse.  Thank God for those superpowers that make your body do everything possible in order not to drop or hurt your child.

When I first saw these, I thought you got bit by a pony. They look very similar.

Oh, heaventy sakes! This looks so painful! I know what you mean about that kind of fall, but I certainly don't know how you protected that little girl! I'm in awe of your super powers! When I fall like this, I can only put my hands out front and then turn my wrist and slide on the ground and scrape my skin off.
