Oh Oh!!!!

Yesterday afternoon at about 4pm, I get a call from home. Our nanny frantically tells me that DD fell off her tricycle and hit her head. DD is screaming in the background like I've never heard her before. I rush to get out of here as fast as I can and all the while my heart is pounding and my stomach is turning. I was so nervous that I almost got into an accident on my way home.

I felt so scared for her and just felt bad for myself. I was so guilty that I was not there for her. She's fine - just has a big bump on her little forehead, but the overwhelming guilt and fear was like nothing I have felt before. I thought about my mom and how concerned she still is about me. Now I understand that as a mother, you'll always worry about your child/ren.

Aww! Poor Lady Day. I'm glad that she is ok.

Yes, that is so true that we will ALWAYS worry about our kids. Have you heard this quote before? It's one of my favorites:

"The decision to have a child is to accept that your heart will forever walk about outside of your body." -- Katherine Hadley

I know you must have been worried to death! Glad she's okay. If she's like most kids, she was on to the next thing by the time you got home. The bump is already a distant memory.
