A change in routine.

Our first injury. I think. Maybe. Probably not. Not mine anyway.

People like to make fun of first-time parents.  They run to the emergency room with their babies littlest concerns.  Sometimes that is true.  20 years ago we probably took a baby to the ER for a head bump once or twice for no real cause, and now?  Well, look at this poor nose.

What happened?

Dad came home and realized he needed something outside in the car -- the mailbox -- somewhere. He opened the baby gate, failed to click it shut, and went out the side door, and did not shut that. Someone who now walks Very Fast, followed him while I was five feet away and I did not notice. The baby was in the presence of THREE ADULTS and none of us noticed that he took off after Daddy. He was gone maybe ten seconds, went through the baby gate, down a step and onto the walkway bricks. Boom on the hands and nose.

Someone who now walks Very Fast, followed him while I was five feet away in the kitchen and I did not notice. The baby was in the presence of THREE ADULTS and none of us noticed that he took off after Daddy. He was gone maybe ten seconds, went through the baby gate, down a step and onto the walkway bricks. Boom on the hands and nose.  He was fine, a red clown nose, and now a scabby scrape.  BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN AWFUL.  

Toddlers are dangerous people, guys.  I spend so. much. time. per. day. keeping this child from killing himself un-intentionally.
