On Saturday I watched Preston fall and smack, just above his eye, on the bookshelf. It only left a small cut, and a tiny bruise that would have been pretty big I'm sure had I not been massaging it everyday. You'd probably never know anything even happened...unless you saw him just minutes after it happened. Then you would have known. It wasn't pretty.

On Sunday John and I left him crying in his crib for far too long, we were both sick, and we were hoping he'd just got back to sleep. We were exhausted. He only had a nasty diaper that needed changing. No biggie.

On Monday while we were outside playing on our front lawn, I accidentally jabbed my thumb nail into his forehead. It bled, and left a nice red bump.

Today, well, today I accidentally smacked him in the head with his high chair tray. He wasn't too happy with me.

I'm on a roll for being an awesome mother these days. Good thing children are so forgiving, and despite all of the 'whoops' we've been having, he still smiles, kisses, cuddles, and talks to me like I'm his favorite person anyway.

Oh, I love him.

Oh my, do not continue this. Now you know how I felt when he got hurt & I was watching him...sure love that little boy & his parents. Glad you & John are feeling better.

Wait a second here...You didn't consider how you take him on walks to the park. You take him to the doctor when you're afraid something is wrong. You make sure no wood chips are in his mouth. You have toys for him to play with during church. The list goes on. I think you're a fantastic mom! Kids just get hurt sometimes like we all do! Let's not talk about how my superhero five year old face planted less than a foot from me and knocked three teeth loose.
