Scary Moment

M and I had a wonderful day at home. Both schools were closed in honor of MLK.

Both of our bedrooms were complete messes, so we decided to help each other clean. (Please read: I cleaned, she watched TV or told me what to do. It was delightful.)

This afternoon we decided to go for a walk around the neighborhood. As I was looking for my shoes, I heard a strange noise on the stairs and raced around the corner.

To see M going head over heels (literally) down at least half the staircase. I don't think I've ever been so scared in my life. I saw her neck bend at a strange-ish angle and her legs flopping around like a ragdoll. My feet turned to cement and I couldn't move. Then I was flying down the stairs to her. I have never been so thrilled to hear her scream and cry. She was fine. Scared, but fine. It took me quite a few more minutes to get over it.

We did end up enjoying a very nice walk.

The other day I was in the kitchen with BubTar while KayTar was in the living room. I heard KayTar fuss and looked up to just catch a glimpse of her falling down the stairs, but my computer chair was blocking my view. She was crying and then suddenly when she landed, she wasn't. I panicked just like you, ran over, and she was fine, just gearing up for her next big cry. LOL. She had only fallen a step or two, but it sure is scary, though!

Zoe did that a while ago. Actually... she did it more than once. Once I saw her fall... the other time I didn't. I think it was SO much worse to see it. Although... hearing that boom boom boom down the stairs wasn't pleasant either.

Yup. Been there twice. Heart in mouth stuff.
