So, we have this little elephant we keep in the freezer for boo boo emergencies.
We had an emergency today.
We were sitting on the front steps using sidewalk chalk (we like to leave messages for the mailman) and Ellie fell face first onto the concrete from the second step.
I can still hear that horrible thud.
I expected missing teeth, a bloody something, and a concussion.
My heart stopped for at least 5 minutes.
I even called the doctor, who kindly told me what to look for, which Ellie had none of.
Kids are resiliant.
Offically the worst. mother. ever.
