Crib Jumpers

I was sitting at the dining room table peeling tomatillos, when all of a sudden I heard a sickening thud. It sounded like a piece of furniture fell through the floor from the attic onto the second floor. But one second later I heard the most piercing scream I've ever heard in my life. I was on the phone with my mother, who I'm sure nearly had a heart attack when I panicked and screamed for my husband, who is still at work.

I got up the stairs faster than I have in eight months.

By the time I got there, Sam had already come out of his room to see what was going on. Lulu was in a heap on the floor. There was no blood, and all of her limbs were moving, so I immediately grabbed her up. After a thorough examination, some googling, and about seventeen minutes of screaming and consoling, I concluded that a trip to the doctor wasn't necessary.

However, a trip to Ikea for a new toddler bed is on the agenda for this weekend.


I have a new post up over at the Philly Moms Blog. Stop by if you have a minute!

Oh poor ole Luce!
I remember the first time the BA did this. It was Christmas day 1996. She was eighteen months old and we'd put her 'up' for her sleep during Christmas dinner. Part way through the turkey there was a little pad pad pad of tiny feet and a little face appeared at the door. VERY pleased with herself she was! Straight into a bed shortly thereafter! And we skipped the toddler model and went straight to the single bed someone had given us which was waiting in a spare room. Congratulations on this milestone Lucy..but watch your feet in future :-D
