Family Matters...

Yesterday I received a message you never want to get as a parent.
I was out the door early for a spin class...and the sitter was home with Ryan who was getting ready to get out the door himself. Luckily he was home...funny how life works that way sometimes.

Si was climbing up to get on a chair, as she has done a million times before, when this time she fell back landing right on her head. Ryan said she cried instantly and when he went to pick her her eyes rolled back and she went limp...it only lasted a few seconds, but I could only imagine to him it would have felt a lifetime.

I got the text from him that he was at clinic with Si. She fell on her head and went unconscious for a few seconds...Call me.

Not the message you ever want to get. Ever.

The places your mind takes you. Nothing else matters at that point, only the safety, life and health of your baby.

All checked out fine. She was responding fine...aside from a nasty bump, and probably a good headache we have to monitor her for the next 48hours. 
Thank God!

I am so fortunate to have a husband that is so hands on with our kids. He has so much love for them and they know it. He has great patience with them, something I need more of!...he is a child at heart when playing with them...and he takes amazing care of them. I feel so lucky that if something had to have happened yesterday, that the timing was such that he was still at home...and that without pause he scooped her up and took her to the doctor. He cared for Si yesterday in a way only a parent could.

Its moments like these, events like this, that put back the importance of lifes moments. What really matters. I am nothing without my family. I would do anything for them and try my best to do everything to keep them safe. But at the same time, kids are kids...and ours seem to be daredevils in the making.
Today its a fall from a chair...and she is fine. That is all that matters.
