So yesterday i am getting ready to do the dishes and i checked on my 21month old son who was playing in his room. he was fine. 5 minutes later i here this loud crash followed by my son screaming. i ran in there and OMG i went into panic mode. This is what i assumed happened, he was climbing in his dresser drawers and jumping in them and tiped the dresser and the tv (which is on dresser) fell over on him. i rushed him to ER, he is fine nothing broken, just a bruise on his forhead and a big cut behind his ear on his head, with a bump and bruise.
i just want to know if anyone else has ever had something like this happen. his dad was so mad at me saying i should watch him better and be right on top of him 24/7. which for the most part i am. but i still have house work to do. his dad made me feel even worse than i already did. just looking for someone to relate to.

This summer we were at a BBQ at a friends house. All the other parents were drinking EXCEPT my husband and I. (That is our rule- we never drink when we are out with our son). So we were watching/playing with everyone elses kids. We were playing with a huge ball, and my son (who is 2 and 1/2) kicked it over to the side of the house. He said "I go get it mama" And I didn't think it was a big deal because I could clearly see where he was going and so could my husband. (it was maybe 40 feet away from where my husband was standing) My son tried kicking the ball to me, but it went into the bushes up onto a bird bath. My son tried to climb on top of the bird bath to get the ball and it fell. My husband and I started running the second we saw it happen but we were too late. Half of the bird bath fell on top of him and he got some nasty scrapes and bruises. He is lucky to be alive.

** Anyways, my husband and I both felt like shit, but it isn't like we weren't watching him. If it would have happened to someone elses kid, then they definitely should have felt like shit because they were drinking (quite heavily I might add, and I was wondering how they were going to drive their kids home drunk??) So don't feel bad, things happen to very cautious mothers. It can happen in an instant and there is nothing you can do about it.
