Monday Memories (that I don't want to remember)

My monday memory is one that i don't want to remember forever. As a parent i know that my children will fall down and get hurt at some point in their life but i'm never ready when it happens, i don't think anyone really is.

We were playing around the house all day monday just relaxing, having fun, it was 2:00 in the afternoon and we still hadn't changed out of our p.j's. (i know pretty lazy)
Caiden has a power wheels escalade that we had in our kitchen. Hailey loves playing in it, I told my husband just the night before that i didn't want her in it, i was afraid she would fall but what do i do, i let her play in it. She was having so much fun, pretending to drive, dancing to the music and then the side door popped open and she fell out strait on her forehead.

It was one of those times where everything happens in slow motion, you try to get there as fast as you can but just miss. I picked her up and she was screaming so bad within the first 2 minutes she vomitted twice. I was freaking out, i called the doctor and asked what to do and they told me to bring her in right away (vomitting after a head injury can be a concussion)

Thankfully she was okay, the doctor said she looked alright just to watch her very closely for the next 24 hours and to wake her every 2 hours a nap time and throughout the night (if only he knew my child does not nap or sleep well at night anyways)

Today she is so much better, playing like her normal self, I know that accidents happen but i still fell horrible for being right there and not being able to stop this.

It really doesn't look as bad as it sounds, the swelling has went down already.

Poor Hailey!!! Hope she feels better soon! But yeah, I know...accidents do happen, even though we REALLY don't want them too! :)

I'm so glad she is doing OK, but that must have given you QUITE the scare!

I totally know what you mean when you say it happened in slow motion. Oh, poor Hailey.

I hope she is back to normal in no time!

Glad she's ok! It is scary when these things happen. Jacob fell down the stairs a few months ago and split his head open. They bounce back so fast though, don't they!
