It Finally Happened...

I have been on edge ever since Meron became increasingly mobile and likes to move about at full speed all the time. I just knew our time was coming when she was going to be heading down sloped concrete and bite it...

Well - today was that day...

When she got home from school - she noticed her pal Teo out in the yard. She gave out her war cry of "Tato!" and started heading his way - at full sprint. As she navigated between the parked cars it happened - I heard it more than I saw it - I actually heard her little precious head hit the ground.

I think God gave us the built in ability to know when to brush it off and when not to - typically I let her recover from a fall on her own and she hardly ever cries. This time I was on her with zero hesitation and wrapped her in a big fat daddy hug - she cried it out for about 30 seconds - then looked at me with tears streaming down her face and said "Tato?"

She chased Teo around (in the grass!) for the next 20 minutes so we think she is fine - but I'll be sneaking in her room to check on her tonight - just to be safe!
