Franny takes a header...

Check out that nose...fell, head first, down our front steps.  Now, I should tell you these steps are concrete and have no railing.  I should also tell you Kyra was standing right next to her off in her own little world.

Usually, Kyra will hold her hand going down the steps so I can finish getting everything we need and get out the door.  Trying to get 4 kids out the door and onto an activity is somewhat of a challenge so I rely on the help from the big kids to get the little kids into the car.  Usually, not a problem.  Well, unless you get annoyed that the boys trudge through the muddy grass, step in every puddle and run around the car instead of getting in it a problem???

Ah well...accidents happen, right??  I think every kid has face planted themselves down these steps...and probably a few adults:)

Only bled for a little bit and now she just looks like Rudolph as the nose has gotten redder and more swollen.  She will live and perhaps Kyra will pay more attention to her??  ha ha...

This is not her first fall...nor will it be her last.  Of all my children, Franny will most likely cause me to run to the emergency room.  I have been pretty lucky with the other three on that department... twice with DJ (and one of them was b/c of a tick bite and not an accident) and once with Max.  None for Kyra at this point.  Uh oh, did I just jinx them???

Let me tell you about the last scary fall of Franny's.  I have been meaning to write this for awhile but just can't seem to fit everything into 24 hours a day..  We took a trip over to Pirate's Park...a park near here that has a big Pirate Ship for the kids to play on.  I walk Franny up the plank and further up to the top...little did I know there was a hole for sliding down a pole just on the other side of where the steps were... yup... she went through it and landed about 6 feet below.  Of course, that one put my heart into my throat like no other Franny fall has ever done.  Fortunately, she was fine.  Scared (me) and unscathed.  And Luckily, she didn't land on the nail that was sticking up just a few inches away...that would not have been good.
This is the pirate ship

This is where she fell

This was 5 minutes later..

  1. Poor Franny... I have a picture of you when you fell down a curb.. Nose all bruised also..

  2. Not entirely do you receive your selection of countless materials, including metals, acrylics, and eventide stones, simply you can also select the type of climb that you would similar for your sinks.
