Mum Injuries

I’ve had several ACC reports lodged by my Dr over the years (for non-NZ’ers reading along at home, ACC is the Accident Compensation Corporation, and if you injure yourself they partially pay for treatment, any loss of income etc. It’s not a perfect system, but it’s there).
Some of my pre-motherhood reports from my Dr seemed outlandishly ridiculous:
“Twisted ankle falling off curb in high heels”
“Hurt neck falling off wakeboard”
“Strained knee while avoiding a bee” (that one was my favorite).
Since having the girls:
“Strained shoulder from leaning over cot patting baby to sleep”
“Bruised nose from being head-butted by baby”
And as of yesterday: “Caught thumbnail while pulling up child’s gumboot. Nail bed now infected”.
Rock n Roll.
