I had a bit of a scare this evening.  I had an accident and ended up hitting my head so hard that I actually knocked myself out.  It was all very traumatic for the kids… here’s mom laying flat out on the floor in tears (it hurt like the DICKENS!! You should see the golf ball-sized bump on the top of my head!)  But mostly I was worried about my neck (all that EMS training drilled into my head…)  There had been considerable force compressing my neck down and I wasn’t too sure if I should be moving. 

So while Peter was checking me out and on the phone with our friendly neighborhood paramedic, Joanna was watching it all, quite upset.

She finally asked Peter in a very, very serious and sad little voice,

Do I have to buy a new mommy now???”

Oh my!
