I HATE THAT SOUND

on March 26, 2013

There is a sound that can make any parent cringe when they hear it. A sound that tells you that one of your children may be hurt.

This sound will send you racing down the stairs without fear of falling as you hope and pray that there is no sign of blood or trauma. More importantly your prayers include a sincere request that the injury that you are more than positive has occurred does not involve the head (Please not the head!) or wait….not the face! Hold on….no broken bones please, please, please!!!

Sigh…

That sound…it’s an awful sound.

Diva girl likes to swing in between the space that separates our love seat from our couch (small living room). She holds on to the arm of both and swings her feet back and forth. Being the carefree child that she is, she will swing without an awareness of her surroundings and always talking a mile a minute.

“Don’t do that, you can fall!”

“No I won’t!”

This has been the constant conversation regarding this very action (swinging on the arms of the couch) and has been said in many different ways by myself, her father as well as her Nana.

Well…today was the day that the ‘sound’ visited our house. The kids had just finished dinner and I ran upstairs to grab something (really can’t even remember what it was…) when all of a sudden…

BOOM, BANG or whatever it sounds like in your house

Now I’m running as I yell….”What was that?

No one answers which makes me crazy!

There she is…my Diva at the bottom of the stairs holding her head.

Sigh…

“You always tell me not to do it…” This is how she starts her explanation, through the tears of course.

At first I’m too angry and too scared to comfort her. Small lecture and hugs afterward.

Plenty of ice and a prayer of thanks that she is still able to ‘talk’ through the explanation…

Watchful eyes on her and checking her breathing to make sure there are no symptoms of a concussion.

I’m not really sure how well I’ll sleep tonight.

I REALLY HATE THAT SOUND

  1. Poor little poppet – one of life’s lessons though and it sounds like she has been taught..the hard way 😦 Hope you both sleep well tonight.

  2. Aww poor little one, I hate seeing kids get hurt. I am not a fan of that sound either, even if the dogs make it.
