I can not imagine! I bet your heart went to your throat. Bless your heart. Hold him extra close and thank God for the miracle that you saw right before your eyes. Everyone makes mistakes! You live and you learn!

Re: PLS learn from my mistake - scary story - happy ending

Since everyone else has given you a lot of hugs, I wanted to give you some information to possibly help ease your mind. I think very medically (force of habit) and remember several stories as I was growing up of kids falling out 2,3, even 7 story windows and "walking away" with minor bumps and bruises. The reason why? Kids bones aren't fully formed so if they fall far they tend to not break bones because their bones are malleiable(sp?). Sort of like a rubber dog bone. So if you hear of a child breaking a bone being very young, there has to be EXTREME pressure on that bone to break.

I am very sorry you had to deal with that. I hope your son feels better soon and your heart rate goes back to normal quickly.

Oh mama Praise the Lord that he is okay. You have learnt from this, so please forgive yourself. Just hold your LO tight. We rarely know what they're capable of (opening doors is just one) until they do it.

Re: PLS learn from my mistake - scary story - happy ending

My first baby did something similar. We were guests at a second-story apartment overnight. It was not our house, so there was no "baby-proofing" in place. Well, he woke up early that morning and climbed out of his pack-n-play, unlocked the front door, went down the stairs and outside. Since we did not live there nobody would have recognized him and brought him home either.

Thank God there was a sweet old lady neighbor who spotted him and stayed with him so that he wouldn't wander into the parking lot. She heard me scream when I saw the front door open and when I ran outside and started calling to him, so she brought him to me right away. I was hysterical and it took me the rest of the day to settle down. It was awful. But the fact is, I had no way of knowing that he would do that.

Don't beat yourself up mama. We've all made at least one mistake that *could* have been very costly. This was your chance to learn from it, and also to learn just how much you treasure your sweet little one. You can forgive without forgetting, so forgive yourself and never forget how *just a minute* is all it takes.

Re: PLS learn from my mistake - scary story - happy ending

My little guy almost got hit by a car one time. I held him the rest of the day. to you and install a gate so it doesn't happen again. They only get more adventurous!!

mama. Like PP have said, we all make mistakes as parents, the best thing we can do is learn from it and move on. And I have to disagree with you OP- having someone get irate with you won't make you feel better or change things. You are already irate enough with yourself. It's not going to go away in your head, so cry, talk to your DH, hug your baby. But remember that it was a mistake and you have learned from it.
