I may regret posting this, but I have a feeling I'm not alone in this boat!!!

I feel horrible. During nap time today L. woke up quietly as sometimes he does. I was busily buzizng around the house trying to get some things accomplished when I heard him start to cry. I took off, which is typical due to his mobility and the fact that he doesn't have crib walls to contain him. He has taken a tumble a few time so far, and alas.. the scene plays out: I open the door expecting to see him on the bed, sitting just shy of the edge, as he has a healthy fear of the 1 ft drop- telling me how horrible it is to wake up alone. But no baby on bed, scanning room.... AHHH, baby butt and legs in the air, baby arm- lodged in the slat of the bedside table, and baby head pressed against an air vent which was blowing cold air! Poor little man. I dislodged his arm and scooped him up (checking for any blood or broken bones.) I think the air in the face and rude fall was all that was truly wrong (though he did land on a pillow.) He has just started to show a nice little Bonk bruise on his forehead.

In my defense, there is only so much I can do if the child determines to go after the alluring alarm clock, placed strategically just out of reach, while he should be napping! Bless his heart.

Just last night we were putting the kids to bed and playing a bit too roughly, and long story short, due to my stupidity, Judah has a ginormous lump on his forehead. By comparison,you should feel like mother of the year!!

By the way, Judah was sitting on my lap as I read your blog, and he saw the picture of the three of you and immediately said, "KATIE!!!" Cool, huh?
