The Worst Sound Ever

One of the worst sounds to a mom’s ears has to be the continuous , thud, thud, thud then “WHAAAAA” as one of the kids falls down the stairs. Yes, that was us this morning. #1 son forgot to close the basement door, #2 made a beeline for said stairs and their mother is an idiot and won’t be winning Mother of the Year this year. (Every year something comes along and thwarts my chances.) #2 is perfectly fine, he just scared himself to death. #1 son felt horrible as did their mother and we had another talk about closing the basement door even if #2 son isn’t even in the house, so we get into a better habit. The boys are 4 years apart and I have forgotten just how quickly a newly mobile baby can get himself across the room.
