    is what I just say my two year old do right behind her little car comming down the stairs. Glad we had carpet on them. I don't know if she was carring it or riding it.

    She seems to be okay. It would bother me more if I didn't have two teenagers that took bad spills at that age.

    Smile Hey lynn

    I hope she is ok. Thats why God made their little legs so low to the ground. If it frightened her, well that is what Dads are for. Roy

    She's okay. My 14 year old fell through a second floor window when he was that age.

    I remember falling off stuff when I was a kid. Must be a father/child thing.

    Hmm lynn

    Well ok, This makes me smile! I guess you are like me. A little clumsy. Watch those arrows in the grocery store parking lot. If they are pointing at you, then you are going the wrong way. Another crash in adulthood. Dang

    The window story reminds me of a story a friend of mine tells happened to him at 14. He used to sneak out his 2nd floor bedroom window to meet with all the neighborhood kids after bedtime. One night while he was gone, his mom came to check on him, couldn't find him and knew he'd gonbe through the open window. She just got in his bed, fell asleep waiting on him. When he climbed back in, he saw the lump in the bed and thought it was the dog. Using his head, he bulldozed her onto the floor. When she stood up, he about wet himself. She gave him a bulldoze back, he went backwards through the window and landed on the bushes below. She stuck her head out and asked if he was OK. When he said yes, she said, from now on, use the door like you're supposed to...with permission. That was his last trip through that window.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    The best one my kid ever did in regards to falling. My son Mike was up in a tree with a hand saw. He sat out on a limb and cut it off. Down came he came. Broke his arm.

    So, what you're really saying is that he tried to do one of those Wile E. Coyote/ Roadrunner episodes.

    An excellent story to reel the grandkids in with. Thanks for the chuckle.

    Oldest boy at 2 years old... bouncing on couch, disregarding the first command for him to stop.... Just had to test the waters by bouncing one more time... loses balance and bangs head on coffee table... much blood from a head injury.... Talk about a panic-fest.

    Now that he's a young adult... any blunders he makes in life, will likely be that he hit his head as a child!

    But not to be out done, my youngest boy now only about 7 months old... is trying to climb up onto the door of the dishwasher... the older brother (months after the head banging incident) sees this as a possible safety infraction as he shoves his brother off of the dishwasher door (opened to allow the just washed dishes to air dry). The wee one, managed to still be hanging onto the hinge mechanism of the open door. Brother then promptly slams the door shut to prevent little Bro from climbing up onto the door. And... you guessed it... it carved the youngsters fingers up badly (Lucky he didn't loose the fingers!!!) More hospital time.

    Ahh... the joys of parenthood...

    Luckily, I haven't had to make the run to the ER yet for either of mine.

    Now, myself on the other hand... I just had a trip to the ER on Thursday and gotta go see an orthopedic specialist tomorrow. Yay for a sprained knee!

    Got a call

    just after work. The two year old got into her sister's room and found some of sis's extrigeant (?). 911, neighbor with cool head, and poision control was called.

    Big scare, but she is fine. My neice thinks maybe she put some on a cotton ball to wash her face and got it in her mouth.

    I was pretty upset trying to get home. I handle the bumps and bruises alot better than posion.

    And I really didn't think we where that bad of parents. Time to move to a new police duristriction.

    I'm nursing a chemical burn on my hip... a bottle of Cal-Clean coil cleaner slipped from my grasp. hit the edge of a metal box I was near, splashed onto work pants....

    From the time it took to scoot to the bathroom, haul down the old trousers, rinse them off.... was enough to make it a bit of a blister-fest. But the stupidity on my part was, after I rinsed the garment real well... the band of the old boxers had a trace amount on it... and tingled a bit... but the chemistry still does it's nasty bit...

    I never mentioned that I was all that bright.

    Whoops... sent it before I finished....

    If we adults can have boo-boos with chemicals.... we ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO MAKE BLOODY SURE WE SECURE THE THINGS THAT CAN CHEMICALLY HURT KIDS!

    Good job on your part Lynn... to jump to the solution right away... and yeah... nothing shakes a parent up worse than having to deal with a 'near poisoning'.... Man....
