convenient shopping, or baby death trap?
Alright so I had a traumatic "bad mommy" moment yesterday!
My friend Rachael and I went shopping and were having a great time, as we were leaving Ikea we walked along the side walk to get to our cars, stopping the shopping carts on the side walk we started to fill our cars with the crap we'd just bought. As I was bending over to put my purse and diaper bag in the car I heard a crash and turned around to find that my cart had rolled off the side walk into the parking lot and flipped over -baby inside! I freaked! I ran over to him, he was bleeding from his mouth and dangling by the seat belt (I always make sure to strap him in good because so many kids fall out onto the hard cement floor of shopping centers). I put him in the car and he fell asleep within 5 mins. which was kinda weird, and there was a yellow/gold sappy discharge coming from his nose. So I called my father-in-law (he's a doc.) he told me to take him to the ER right away so I did. When we got there Law had woken up and was acting pretty normal the Doctor there checked him out and said his head looked ok and he didn't seem to have broken his ribs (he has bruising all over his back and sides). he checked his mouth and said he had torn his frenum? -the piece of flesh between your gums and top lip- and got banged up but that was it. So he's got a really fat lip that looks like a bird-beak and some pretty big bruises but he's fine -luckily! I am so happy he's alright! I couldn't be more blessed!
