Things that go bump in the night

Okay, technically, things went bump in the early evening.  That’s when my oldest son and my youngest son had a collision involving a pink doll stroller.  In the aftermath of the pile-up, my two year old was in tears. Since this kind of thing happens a hundred times a day around here, I didn’t think much of it.  I hugged my toddler, kissed his boo-boo, dried his tears, and…didn’t realize he had just fractured his foot.

I promise I’m not usually this slow on the up-take.  But this time, it took a 2:30 a.m. trip to the emergency room to figure out the problem.  Four bleary-eyed hours later I tucked him back into bed, splinted and sleeping soundly.

On the bright side, I had a great excuse to take a nap today and Mark is back to his usual self.  In fact, I caught him somersaulting backwards off the couch this afternoon.    I know, I know.  This kid is hazardous to his own health.  But I’ve decided things-that-go-bump-in-the-day are my husband’s responsibility.  At least for today.

Turns out his finger caught under a skateboard wheel and…yeah, it’s as icky as it sounds. I felt awful for blowing him off when I finally realized he wasn’t kidding around. Mommy guilt galore. He was back up to his usual shenanigans in no time. Your little guy isn’t wasting any time either. He just wants to keep you on our toes. 🙂

    1. Nope, he’s not slowing down at all. We head to the orthopedist tomorrow. This isn’t a good year for Mark! (But the doll stroller doesn’t top your middle-of-the-night pizza order. hee hee) Love you, too. Thanks for the comment!
