To infinity and beyond...and then to the Dr!
Oh Austin.... what else can I say? This past weekend Austin was pretending to be Buzz Lightyear. He is in a big Toy Story phase right now and often tells me he can fly. Well, this flying boy flew a little too far. Another phase he is in right now is being naked. All the time. I find clothes all over the house that he has thrown off, slipped out of, or torn off to run around with his white little buns hanging out. So, my naked Austin was jumping off the couch being Buzz yelling "to infinity and beyond" when he jumped too far... all the way to the floor, head first. Ugh, the noise was terrible and his cry was awful and his eyes were not looking right. My friend Angie has teased me numerous times that I would be in the ER with this kid before he was five. She proved me right. I actually skipped the ER, not wanting to be there for 3 hours, and raced to the Convenience Care closing in 10 minutes. After some screaming while the doctor checked eyes, nose, and motor skills he was cleared to go home with a mild concussion. I have a feeling this may be just the beginning with this boy... Oh Austin! We love you and are so glad you are okay... you know how to make me worry, but also teach me that sometimes boys are just boys. Oh Austin.... or should I say Buzz?
