Both twin boys were in the living room yesterday while I was fixing them lunch. Solid stone vase, which I thought they couldn't move, well, moved. Off the end table onto Connor's right foot.

Took him to the ER. First toe in from the pinky toe. Nice clean break. Not much they can do. Just buddy tape the broken toe to the middle toe -- if he'll let me that is...

Poor kid. Doesn't understand why his toe hurts. And then Ethan is also bawling, knowing his brother's hurt.

Kills me, but that was yesterday. Today, he's already up and running about, although limping pretty bad.

He's a tough, resilient little guy, I'll give him that!

My 4 yr old daughter (at the time) and I were playing hide and seek while on vacation in Maine. Everything was fun and games until we were both sneaking up on the same closed door from opposite sides. Well, I swung the door open and jumped out just as she lunged in toward me with her hands out. All of a sudden she lets out a blood curdling scream. I look down at her hand and her right pinky was jutting out from her hand at a perfect right angle. Her finger was broken and dislocated. Boy did I feel like shit.

Sorry about Connors toe, but kids are resilient.

Thankfully the worst I've ever done is drill Sarah in the forehead with my knee. It was right after Erika started crawling so we had baby gates up and I was stepping over it. Sarah walked into the living room from the kitchen at the wrong time.

Thanks, all! Yeah, two days later and the kid is actually running today, albeit in circles -- pulls to the right.... :-D

Seriously though, when he's got his hard-soled sandles on, he's on the go. Soon as we take the shoes off, he will not get up on his feet. Which is kinda cool, actually. If he becomes "wild-child", which is becoming more and more common, just take his shoes off...Heh, heh!

Damn, 2 years old and he already needs an alignment!

I'm doing the same thing--:-D I smoked my little toe on a rock on a beach in Maine two weeks ago and broke it--still not right. I'm afraid to walk barefoot now for fear I'll whack it again. Wish I was still young enough for mom to kiss it and make it all better. Tell the boy I hope he's better soon.
