my poor dad spilled my poor baby on her head today
we were sitting on his motorcycle for a picture (it wasn't on or anything - don't worry!) and my 2yo wanted to sit in front of him where Isa was, so I'm holding her and my 4yo is behind my dad and he picks Isa up and (total brain fart
) he sets her down like you would a toddler and (
) let's her go!
she totally flopped over onto her face (of course!) but luckily her belly hit the ground first and she only hit her head a little. it was the concrete driveway!
ugh. it was totally one of the those slow motion moments, ykwim? my sis was taking the picture and was waiting for him to hand her Isa and she was like okay, he's gonna pretend to walk her to me and then when he let her go, she was like "DAD! What are you doing?!??!" I practically dropped my 2yo to run around to the other side of the bike to get her. i thought my dad was gonna cry.
he just picked her up right away and took off w/her. i think he was afraid i'd get her and never give her back
like i said, turns out she was just fine. he's more traumatized than she is. she cried. she nursed. she's all better. but my dad just couldn't get over it. it told him i've *almost* done the same thing b4. you get so used to setting your kids down w/2 toddlers and sometimes you forget who you're holding. obviously he didn't do it on purpose! poor guy. he loves his harley and he's probably never going to look at it w/out thinking about this now.
poor baby. she has only one scraped knuckle. but what a rough start to the day!
