As parents we constantly worry about our children. With 6 boys running around I have certainly worried about mine and have spent many days and nights in the Emergency room at our local hospital for various things such as concussions, stitches, asthma attacks, and other various illnesses. A few days ago however it was myself I should have been more concerned about!
One would think that after training in a gym for almost forty hours a week in a high risk sport such a gymnastics during my youth I would have had a few bruises here and there – and I did, however, I had never had a black eye until last Friday!
After dropping the last school age child off at school I did my usual quick spin through at Timmies and then returned home with Thatcher and Tanner. It was at this point that I should have stopped right there and started the whole morning over again!
I took Tanner out of the “bus” and stepped onto here:
I then promptly tripped and fell. Yes while holding Tanner. I was able to pull him closer to my body but he still hit his head on the concrete – thankfully not as much as my head did. He came out with this boo boo on his head:
This was my boo boo:
Ouch indeed. Not only did I have a big goose bump on my head but managed to get a black eye, a serious head ache, nausea, and yes, a concussion. I know right? You did read correctly – a concussion.
Like I’ve said before – the things we do for our kiddies. OI!
Have you ever had a major fall while holding a child or am I just the klutzy mama?
Until next time,
