Did I Say a Little LESS Stress?

What was I thinking? A little less stress, yeah right! My sweet sweet boy #1 gave me quite the scare last night after church. He ran out the back doors of the church headed for the gym, like he does every Wed. night. This time, though, he missed the step and took a dive right into the pavement. It was horrible! He was screaming at the top of his lungs. For me, this is a serious sign, cause he is very tough. Most of the time he usually dusts himself off and is on his way. He did not move. He was just was lying there screaming. I went running, scooped him up and headed for the kitchen to get some ice. He put up a fight about the ice saying, "No, I not like ice". Bless his heart, my strong willed child trying to control the situation with a busted head! So after some coaxing and mild restraint, he let me put the ice on his head. I kept him up a little late to be sure he didn't inflict any serious damage. I put him in bed with me and when I tucked him in I asked him if he was feeling bad, and he said, "No, but I think you might need to take me to the hospital". I kinda giggled, cause if he really knew what would happen at the hospital, he wouldn't have asked. So anyway, every few hours I woke him up and asked him a few questions, he told me when I woke him up the last time VERY early this morning before I could even ask, "You are mommy and I'm in mommy's bed!" He is one tough kid. God bless him. I just love him so much!

Glad he's ok and it wasn't anything more serious. It does make me smile to picture Noah fighting you with the ice, and responding to your questions. He is full of spunk! I love it!!

Look at that head!!!! Oh my word. Poor guy! He is a tough little man and we all love him. Good job mothering too. Fighting the ice and waking him up. Good thinking....I wouldn't have thought to do that even though it makes perfect sense and is kinda obvious! Shows you what I know!

Hey that was fast for the movers to come. Didn't realize it was happening so soon. Are you off to Alaska-NOW?
And this that's a big one! I have actually seen a kid do the same as you explained in that same area while we lived there. Don't you just love being a mommy?
Keep us up to date with ya.
