Saturday my son-in-law called about 8:30 a.m. to tell us that our little man (a/k/a Jackson) had a bar stool fall on him and it put a big ole knot on his head and his little front tooth was dangling down! Oh my goodness.....we met them at the doctor's office who quickly sent us to the ER. How many of ya'll have experienced the ER on a Saturday morning? Actually, it wasn't as bad as I thought. They called Jackson and his mom and dad back pretty quick. Of course, Taylor wanted to go back there to check on her "brodder" (remember they are twins and have quite a bond) but Pop and I assured her that her brodder was okay. About 11:30 Taylor was getting a little restless and so we decided to get her something to eat and take her to Mimi and Pop's for a nap (that would be me and hubby). We went to the back to tell Shannon and SIL we were leaving. On our way back to the room where little man was, we could hear him singing a song and clapping his hands..... like he didn't have a care in the world! All us grownups were about to hyperventilate but that little boy was having the time of his life. After we got home and we got Taylor to sleep, my daughter and her husband came in with Jackson and they had pulled his tooth.....to the tune of $150! Of course, my SIL said he could have saved himself the $150 if that's all they were going to do and could have pulled it himself but I don't think he really would have....I believe that was $150 well spent. Jackson is as good as new, talking, singing, eating his "butter" (PB&J which he would eat all the time if Shannon would let him). I'm so grateful he is okay but it just goes to show that you can be right in the room with your children and accidents happen. Apparently, he was climbing up on his stool when it toppled over and those stools are real heavy. We are so lucky it wasn't even worse but man, did it pull my heart strings to see my little buddy hurt like that. He got extra hugs and kisses which he loved! Thank God he is okay.
I'm a Southern girl who loves my family and home. Born and raised in the Deep South, I have a great respect for our heritage and try in my own little way to keep the Southern lifestyle alive and well! I'm happily married to a wonderful man and we have two grown children and four grandchildren who are the love of our lives! I hope you enjoy your visit to my Southern home and as we say here in Dixie, ya'll come back now, ya hea!
Throwback Thursday on the Back Porch 10
Drawing from the archives of the original Back Porch Musings, these photos are from April 2010. We are putting together a plan for the deck. I ordered a navy...
