Ouch, Fuck.

When is it going to stop? Every single week I’ve got another friggin accident injury or sickness to deal with.

This one is a real doozy. And I’ll preface it by saying, he’s OK.

L was in his room playing this morning while I was getting ready for work. All of a sudden, one leg in my skirt, I hear a crash followed by screaming. L had somehow managed to tip his tallboy dresser on top of him while trying to get a pair of socks, he said. The socks are in his top drawer, he must have opened one of the lower drawers and stepped on it, fell backwards and the dresser fell over on top of him. I run madly into his room and he’s trapped underneath his five foot tall solid wood dresser. Oh My God. I lifted the dresser off of him and grabbed him up in my arms, he was more scared than hurt. I don’t know how he’s so OK actually, he stopped crying pretty quickly. Once the adrenaline wore off, I realized I had badly injured my back while lifting up the huge dresser – it must weigh a few hundred pounds. I never in a million years thought that thing could topple over. And I would never be able to even shift the thing normally but mommies can lift anything to save their children right? So here I am. Barely able to move. My back is completely thrown out. I went to work this morning, still in shock really, but came home for the afternoon, I could not stand sitting in my office chair any longer.

Anyways, L is OK and that’s all that matters. And as soon as A gets home from work, he’s SCREWING THE DRESSER TO THE WALL.

What if I had been in the shower (which I was five minutes earlier), I wouldn’t have heard him. That thought just makes me sick. There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING worse in this world than your child being hurt. I think L spent more time taking care of me than me of him. He told his Papa that “the dresser fell on me and mama saved me!” I guess that’s what mamas are for! And I’m happy to do it! Fucked up back and all!
