Monica go boom.

I took a lot of precautions over the last 10 months to avoid what turned out to be inevitable.

Aspen rolled off my bed last week.

I had just peeked on her and the moment I turned my back to put the hamburger patties in the fridge I heard the sickening thud.

I wanted to jump off the roof just so we'd be even.

She's fine, of course. I gave her a dose of Tylenol and held her until she stopped crying. Then we shared a Popsicle and Daddy came home to give her more cuddles. She doesn't have a bump or a bruise on her, but my heart is still heavy.

I hate that I let my baby girl down. Yes, we all do it. We all turn around and then *poof* baby falls, baby puts something dangerous in her mouth, baby bonks her head.

That knowledge doesn't make it any easier to stomach though.


  1. So sorry! It is the worst sound. I remember when Bailee rolled off the couch for the first time. She has also fallen out of the glider. It was so stupid of me I dont know why I sat her there when I knew she was mobile. But I dont think there is anyone who hasnt had it happen to them. At least she doesnt have any bumbs or bruises.

  2. Makai fell off our bed a few months ago and he's alright... we think.

  3. Oh I am sorry. That is so not a fun thing to experience. You really do feel sick all day. At least you made it to 10 months. Beckett fell off our rocking chair when he wasn't even a week old.

  4. I was babysitting my niece when she was about 6 months old and, like a childless idiot, left her on the bed while I ran into the bathroom to grab something. And, of course, she rolled off, bonking her head on a table along the way. She SCREAMED and I felt like a horrible monster.

    Even though she didn't even get a bruise, I spent the rest of the day worrying that she had brain damage, that her Ivy League future was now watered-down to a community college drop-out life.

    So, yeah, I hear ya.

  5. It does make you sick when it happens.

  6. It's kind of a rite of passage. In fact, I can't really think of anyone that hasn't happened to. Still, when Eva rolled off our bed, I felt terrible!!
