Bump! What was that noise?

No this is not a double post as this noise was not under the bed but from from beside the bed. This is what I heard....
  • BUMP!!!
  • The CFO: "Jackson hit his head!"
  • The CFO: "Turn the lights on, it's bad."
Just as any good husband would, I obeyed and turned on the lights. Sure enough Jackson had a good sized goose egg on his head. We hear that is a good sign. He did not loose consciousness, also a VERY good sign. But he did scrape it pretty good so there was a little blood. We know that with head trauma you want to see if the patient becomes groggy. Well, it was a little after one thirty in the morning. Who wasn't groggy? We all stayed up for a bit and gave him some Motrin for the pain. It was a fine line we danced on... keep him awake but not so awake that he wanted to play:)

Turns out Jackson had climbed into bed with us and then promptly rolled out of bed. Another lesson to add to the list for the Triplets:
  1. No good deed goes unpunished.
  2. Don't stick your hands on (in) opening (or closing) elevator doors.
  3. If you get in bed with Mommy and Daddy, get in the middle.
After about 30 minutes I was satisfied that he was OK. The CFO, like all Mothers, kept her vigil for another hour after we allowed him to go back to sleep. By the time she decided he was OK the swelling was almost gone.

If things happen in threes I can't wait to see what #3 is! - That is sarcasm:)

The CFO curled Addison's hair for the first time! OK with me as long as Addison knows that IS NOT a Daddy job. I gotta draw the line somewhere:)

A favorite quote of mine from a good friend. The quote is from many, many years ago. This was his response to me when I pointed out an attractive lady to him.

No matter how good looking someone is you must remember this..... someone, somewhere is sick of their mess (I changed the last word to take this from an R rating to a PG rating but you get the gist)

*laughs* I've already laid down the line, brushing and braiding is as far as I'll go.
