But believe it or not I feel incredibly blessed!!! It was about 5pm and I was still sitting around in my workout clothes and was contemplating jumping in the shower. The kids were outside and playing nicely. I had just checked on them and everything seemed fine so I thought I'd hurry and shower up. I heard something tell me as if it were someone talking to me, "Nah, just go outside and sit and watch your kids." Okay, I thought to myself, I'll do that. I can shower when everyone's back inside. What's another half hour of being in my workout clothes? So I did. The kids quickly lit up and ran over, "Watch this mom!" All three of them, they were showing me how high they could throw their balls in the air. Brooke's turn... she threw it up and ran after it as it came down. Splat! Down she went face first! I immediately went sick, telling myself as I ran over not to faint if her teeth have fallen out! I was sure that was the case. I scooped her up, blood gushing from her mouth. I brought her inside and washed her up. Her lip... that's it? It was HUGE, but her teeth still there. I thought she might need stitches in her lip, I wasn't sure, so I called dad at work. Relieved that her teeth still there and realizing what had just happened. Had I been in the shower, what might it have been like? Who would have helped her in the house? The blood would have been everywhere. And how quickly would I have been able to get out and help her? This was such a blessing! I am so grateful I listened and I'm so grateful she still has her two front teeth! But of course, pictures of it after a bath and being comforted... I love her!
