Having 4 sons I have so been there...on many more than one occasion! I am so glad she is alright and let her know what a brave, brave girl she is! Kim

Annalea, you have such a brave, beautiful daughter. All cleaned up and with the stitches I can see just how big a split that really was.

I hope today you were able to rest up a bit and that Jesse's day at work wasn't too difficult after a long night.

I've been there and done that. When I was 5 and suffering from cabin fever I experienced the same accident. Instead of a foosball table I fell flat on the marble floor, and there was a giant mess (the floor and me). I had to get 5 stitches under my chinny chin chin. I remember it was a frightening experience. I'm glad your little girl was a brave little trooper.
