What did your mother tell you about jumping on the bed? Mine told me not to. And what a drag! She did get me a trampoline though. Of course, I tell my girls not to jump on the bed. But for good reason for heaven’s sake!!! Because yesterday, while running on the bed chasing her sister, who was holding Chloe’s giraffe, Chloe fell backward off the bed and hit her head on the corner of the nightstand. This led to an immediate trip to the ER where Chloe received 4 staples in her head…and shed one single tear. I’m so proud of my little lady. And fortunately for her, she has a ton of beautiful hair that covers her laceration. She’ll also be wearing braids for at least a week to avoid any possible tangles and the necessary brushing that accompanies such tangles, as that wouldn’t mix well with such a terrible boo boo. I’m thankful for such a brave lady. She was such a trooper and could’ve really made it tough to fix her cut. But she did an amazing job and I’m so proud of her. As we left the ER, the nurse practitioner who fixed up Chloe called out, “No more monkeys jumping on the bed!” Very appropriate.
