Kids Toys 1 -- Me 599rolling falling
Posted 18 May 2012 - 04:13 AM
And all these years, I thought I had no worry of the hazards that walking people face....even my son steps on his own Legos or Hotwheels, and I cringe with sympathy, although he should have them placed in a better location, right?
Last week I rolled backwards and BAM!!!! A gorilla block caught me by surprise, stoppped my chair and I get thrown back/tipped over with my toddler in my arms. And of course my daughters safety was first and foremost and with Jedi like ease and the grace of a falling leaf she was placed gently down. It is a plus that I have push handles on my chair (to hold my purse really) they saved my head from hitting the floor. But damn the other gorilla block that engorged my back was not appreciatedalong with all the stuff in my purse. Screeeeaming from the stabbing pain I sat their assessing the severity of my fall for five minutes. I felt okay to move and decided it was a bruised spine.
I thought I would never be injured by toys on the ground. HAHA I am humbled now.
And as for the gorilla blocks...well, I think my son was so freaked out that I was actually crying from pain that he won't be having those lying around for a while.
I am all better now. To all parents in wheelchairs, Beware of backing over toys!
Fell free to share your best or should I say worst fall.

Better watch out for those action figure toys...no telling what kind of damage they might do. Glad you wasn't seriously hurt! Boys tend to have short memories........be careful!!!

Bugger is the kitchen, I am always rolling backward with my hands full of plates or stuff for the fridge and a random shoe or doll or something will nearly empty me over the top onto the floor.
Much yelping and swearing (under my breath) but luckily no trips to the ER to get my head sown up, back or front!

It was my last night in the unit and a few inmates and myself went to the local pub for a goodbye drink. We are all arriving back at the unit entrance where i had left my wheelchair thinking that it was a good plan to go on my crutches in a taxi and then transfer back into my chair in the entrance porch area....Good plan when sobre but not so good after several glasses of wine (in not a big drinker lol)..as i discovered.
I put my crutches down and reached for my chair..which i missed...and fell to the floor very ungracefully ....dislocating my finger joint in the process..ouch! .....but funny!
