Bombs Away

Isaac jumped off my parents' dining room table yesterday. Literally.

My mom strapped him into his bouncy seat and put it on the table while she finished the morning's crossword puzzle. She said she looked down at the paper and looked up just in time to see the bouncy seat fall face first off the table. The mobile took the brunt of the fall, and Isaac was more shaken up than he was hurt. My parents called me about 20 minutes after it happened, and he had stopped crying and was playing and laughing like normal, but we took him to the doctor anyway, just to make sure there weren't any injuries we hadn't seen.

He was fine, but it was a pretty terrifying experience for a new mom. My mom was more upset than anyone, though. She cried nearly the whole day, worrying that I wouldn't want her to watch Isaac anymore. I was angry, but not that angry. I just asked her to promise never to put Isaac's bouncy seat on any elevated surface. And, to baby-proof the house before she puts him in the walker she's been dying to buy.

OMG, I would have been terrified, and every time I put Kaia in her little bumbo seat on an elevated surface, I think to myself, "I am so not supposed to do this..." Having this happen just reminds me that shit like that CAN and DOES happen.

As for walkers, I work with a lot of PTs and they really don't recommend the use of them anymore. Not that you asked for my opinion... but maybe your mom would get an exersaucer instead?
