Tonight we got to spend our evening in the E.R. My toddler fell head first out of the shopping cart at Babies R Us. It seems that everything is all right. Although, we were unable to get a CT scan to be certain (she wouldn't hold still). The ironic part is that we had gone to Babies R Us to find a booster seat that had a seat belt on it. She has been standing on the bar stools and I was afraid she would fall off. I wanted to belt her in so she wouldn't fall.
Why are there only a few stores that offer carts with space for two kids? It seems that we will now be wearing a backpack leash in the store. I swore I would never do it, but now I will be too scared to let her ride in the cart. (She was sitting but I stopped to look at booster seats and I guess she stood up.)
Luckily, our nurse's child had done the same thing. She made me feel a little less guilty. Accidents happen so quickly. I am so relieved that my baby girl is okay.
