Whats a mother to do....

While having a fun afternoon with my three children I decided to make some cookies with my little budding chef, George. I was enjoying the time together and looking forward to some warm cookies. George aka (Monkey Man) was standing on my counters watching the mixer spin when he got a little curious and decided to stand in the sink and look out the window. Needless to say he looked a little to hard and fell through the screen and out my kitchen window. This window would be about 6 feet off the ground. So my dear little man fell out the window on his face. It all happened so fast and yet seemed to occur in slow motion. 
I quickly scooped him up and called 911. The paramedics were so great and helped me to stay calm. A good neighbor sat with Jack while I rushed George and a very hungry and screaming baby Eva to the ER. The doctors checked him out and gave him a Cat scan. Every thing checked out and we made it out in a quick 2 1/2 hours. George looks very beaten up with a big scrap and bruised face. On a side note today was George's school picture and we had family pictures scheduled for this evening. Needless to say no family pictures and one scary looking school photo.

Oh scary! We went to the ER this week too! Ian got stitches, but it wasn't quite as scary as watching your child fall through a window, I'm sorry.

I am glad to hear everything is okay. What a scary thing!! I guess George won't stand in the sink anymore :) I wish I was closer and could bring you some cookies.

Yikes! I'm so sorry! Don't feel bad, Spence once fell out our SECOND STORY bedroom window...a mere 15+ feet to the ground. I nearly died but he didn't even have a scratch on him. It's the worst feeling in the world!
