    My husband informed me about a year ago that he one night while chaining our son’s diaper, my little angel rolled off the changing table and fell into the laundry basket. Praise god it was full of clothes. He says my son was equal parts shocked and elated. See? Coffee grinders are peanuts compared to falling 3 feet into a basket of probably stinky clothes, right?

    Did I mention my son is now 9.5 and I JUST heard about this story a year ago?

  2. These kind of things can be really heart-wrenching, and every time they happen we keep on vowing that we’ll never do, or allow to be done, something like that again…but somehow they keep happening! The thought of that makes me shiver, but I guess we just need to take one day at a time and do as best we can.

    As you so rightfully said, we might not be perfect, but we love our children and we can’t do more than that!
