Today I am thankful once again that I have a healthy child. She has decided that she must want to die soon. In the past three days she has taken two really bad falls. Friday, she was in her booster seat at my parent's watching a video. I had just put the tray on and before I could make sure it was on tight, she leaned forward, put all of her weight on it and flipped head first out of the seat, banging her forehead on the bar.
Today, once again, we were at my parent's and she wanted to go outside with her cousins. I opened the door and said, "wait a minute, hold mommy's hand" and since she's 2 she didn't listen. She ran straight to the steps, took the first one fine and lost her footing on the next and went head first down the steps flipping over completely three times as she tumbled down the EIGHT steps landing on the concrete walk. She was fine. Little bump on the top of her head and a red mark on her back. Really??? God is amazing.
I was terrified. I couldn't imagine the bloody mess or broken bones I was going to have to deal with. Nope. Within a minute, she was crying because I wouldn't take her back outside. It is amazing to me that kids are so resilient.
