hmmmm
So like shirt stays? My DH (he’s a CHP) uses these elastic things called shirt stays that hook around his foot inside his boot and then go up to his shirt and clip on so it stays properly tucked.

Oh, how scary for you!!! What a sweet little guy you have to try to keep his brother calm!!

We've had a couple scares too (a dog bite to the face was the major one) so I know that feeling of sheer panic!! I'm glad everything turned out ok and he's back to normal! Now, tell that boy....no more chewing on springs

Thanks again!
Oh my gosh. I know what you mean about being RIGHT there. My son fell out of a (2 story) window at about 26 months. I was seriously not more than a foot away from him - NO more than 12" and I don't think it was even that much. I was reaching for him and he fell. Worst day of my life. We were in the ER and mom had to tell me that they call CPS w/ a lot of accidents so I was worrying about my sons life AND if I was even going to be able to keep him - thanks a lot mom! Anyway, I'm glad he's okay. And I've found that accidents DO happen.

I can't even imagine. That would definitely be one of those moments that everything happens in slow motion for me. I watched my brother fall down a flight of stairs when he was two...he laid at the bottom and just cried, but didn't move. It was really scary.
