Freckles in April: Blame

Blame

This weekend our kitchen went to pot. When I woke up this morning there were a ton of nasty dishes in the sink, crumbs on the counter and sticky drops of popsicle on the floor. After I put the boys on the bus and the baby in the high chair with her breakfast I rolled up my sleeves and went to work.

Things were going swimmingly until I went to hang a frying pan on our pot rack above the island in the middle of our kitchen and I totally smashed myself in the chin with the pan. It was clearly my fault but my immediate reaction was a lot similar to Brene Brown's in this hilarious and thought-provoking video. As soon as the words "Damn you Aaron!" were out of my mouth I started cracking up and went to find it to remind myself that "fault" isn't important- empathy is.

Hi, my name is Kayla, and I'm a blamer.

(but I'm working on it!)

  4. Good stuff right there, I'm going to make all of my kids watch it. I spend 70% of my day shouting "I DON'T CARE WHO'S FAULT IT WAS!" it's exhausting :)
