Big scare

Today was the first day of school for Noah. (what ever happened to starting school after Labor Day?) I went with Chrystal to pick him up this afternoon.

We were sitting in the pick-up line and Hayden was pretty fussy in her car seat, so I got her out of the car and walked around with her. As I was walking back to the car with her, I somehow missed a curb cut and fell. Thankfully we landed in an area with dirt (and mud) rather than on the concrete. Hayden screamed and screamed and I wasn't sure at first if she was hurt or just scared. Thankfully she was just scared and other than being a bit muddy and dirty she was fine. I was crying almost as hard as she was just thinking about how she could have been badly hurt. My crying probably didn't help her fear, but I just couldn't help it, I was so frightened. I kept apologizing to Chrystal about letting it happen, and I hope she'll forgive me.

I scraped up my leg a bit and did something to the top of my right foot. It's very swollen and bruised and it hurts to walk on it. I suspect I'll be sore tomorrow, but as long as Hayden is okay, I'll deal with it.

Grandmamas have to understand that accidents happen.They happened with our own children and they will happen with our childrens children. Hopefully you will be OK just like Haden.

That was Hayden--sorry to mis-spell such a beautiful name.

Oh, dear. I hope you are feeling better today. Hayden has already forgotten about it so you need to not stew. Just rest up and take care of your bumps and bruises.

I love you!! Hayden is as perfect as ever. Just so you are ok, I'm ok.

And people wonder why I, as a childless lady, won't hold anyone's baby. The older I get the more clumsy I am - I drop almost everything I touch these days. Glad you and that cute grandgirl are doing okay. Love, Del
