We had a bit of an accident yesterday

with Charlotte,

She fell of the top of mum and dad's stairs. Didn't tumble down them, fell out the side of the rail, about 2.5 meters above the ground. Landed clean on her head, grateful that it was on the grass side and not the concrete side would of been so much worse.

Was so scary and all I could do was stand there and watch like a stunned mullet.

Luckily Dad was there too, never seen him move so fast.

Had a very sore little girl who right now is missing some of her hair and a little scalp. Just goes to show that we shouldn't get her hair cut, (they had haircuts yesterday). Last time we did that she fell out of the trolley. Think I have a chick who doesn't like her head much.

Anyway after a pretty stressful night where I didn't get to bed until after 2am this morning. Char woke up like her usual self this morning and said she's feeling better.

Anyway just had to get this one down. So so so scary, even worse when dad told me that they heard on the news last night that a girl fell off a top bunk bed and died. Can't believe that after a fall like she had, she's fine

Oh poor little baby. Thank goodness she is okay after such a big fall.

Sounds like no more haircuts for a while.

Oh my, poor Char and poor you too. What a horrid thing to happen. Glad she is ok.

So keep her out of the hairdressers from now on ok! :)

OMG, how scary for you.. I had a close call with Mia a couple of years ago, but luckily she didn't fall, she clung on to the rail on the other side... It was Christmas time and I had been having a bit of Xmas cheer, tell you what, I was sober as a church mouse after that..... hugs for you, these things happen so quickly! xxxx
