I was super psyched to stumble upon this link up today at not one of my fave blogs but two!
Lauren & Rushelle teamed up and came up with an awesome link up... join in!
I dropped my baby.
Seriously, it could happen to you. I was leaving Wal-Mart and had my baby boy of 6 months on my shoulders. I had so much fun walking with him on my shoulders and reminiscing about when my grandfather used to carry me on his shoulders and how much I loved it. We got to the car and I dropped my umbrella so without hesitation I leaned down and picked it up. As I stood back up, my heart stopped. In order to lean down and grab something I had let go of Aiden's tiny little ankles.
Everything happened so fast! As the realization struck a chord of fear within me I noticed there were not one but three women gaping at me around the parking lot. One even let out a little scream and ran towards me. I whirled around and found him a few feet away... laughing. His little bald head was dirty with asphalt rocks and trash but he seemed fine. I grabbed him up and grasped him all the way to the hospital... boo-hoo'ing to Sarah about how I had probably caused some terrible harm to him and HOW COULD I HAVE DROPPED HIM!? FROM MY SHOULDERS!? 6 FEET TO PAVEMENT!? AT 6 MONTHS OLD!? I was mortified. So much so, they threatened to sedate me at the hospital. My baby was fine after all, not even a scratch... but I still look back and feel the 'Oh no, did that just happen?' feeling!
