I fell down the steps in the middle of the night

Last night, the boys had a mini guys night in the living room. We watched a movie, ate some candy and I left them to hangout. It was only Elliott and Emmett.

I was in my room and must have dozed off. When I woke up, a little after midnight, I realized I didn’t hear any noise, so I went downstairs to check on my kiddos. I slipped on the very first step and fell all the way down.

I was able to pull myself up and checked on my kids. Emmett was asleep on the couch and slept through the whole ordeal.

I opted to let him stay there and I made my way back to bed. I’m gonna be honest, I hurt but I’m okay and grateful that it wasn’t any worse than it was.

Moving around a bit slower today but I’m moving around.

It’s gonna be a long day.

My feelings go out to you Rob, I’ve fallen down our steps twice, once halfway down to the bottom step in the group home I used to work at. And it hurts, but even at my age, I guess I still have a tough body for my age. Not a nice experience at all, falling down the stairs. BJW is correct at the marvel sometimes of the human body. Hope you feel better in the coming days.


Yikes…next time place toboggans or mattresses near the stairs for an easy glide downstairs. JK.Glad there werent any broken bones! Oh and btw the tag line uner your author name after the post says FO this blog =D… YO YO YO FO SHO!!


Oh that’s a nasty scrape! The human body is actually kind of amazing. I was 7 months pregnant with my first when I fell down an entire flight of stairs. Needless to say, baby inside me was surprised…but fine. (I did go to ER and was pretty sore afterwards.)

I hope you feel better soon. It can be dangerous if you land wrong and we wouldn’t want that!
