Heart stopper

So just as a follow up to my last post. I don’t hate being a mother hehe, but we’re all allowed to have bad days and this week has been challenging for sure. But obviously I love my kids and my days with them.

So yesterday ended up being a heart stopper, Jamie lent over the side of his high chair and one of his straps came undone. I saw the whole thing happen in slow motion and as he hit the floor head first I screamed, I thought that was it he’s broke his neck. But then he screamed and screamed, and it’s not often I can say I feel relieved about my baby crying, but yesterday I did. After he had calmed down he started dosing of on my chest, and I sat him up and started walking around to keep him awake, after a little while he seemed fine and was playing like normal. After a few hours he started getting tired again and I put him down for a nap (I was constantly checking on him). But when he woke up he was very drowsy, just tried going back to sleep and didn’t seem quite with it, so I phoned the NHS advise line, and they recommended that he should be seen at a&e within the hour. So of we went. He slept in the car but as soon as we got to the hospital he was wide awake giving big smiles to everyone he could see. I think everyone who saw him at the hospital fell in love with him, and several hours later after he’d seen a doctor and had a couple of observations done we got let home. And he’s all happy and jolly just like he always is. But wow did he give us a scare.
