I'm so sorry that all of you went through that experience; especially Makenna. Unfortunately, these freak things happen, and we, as mothers, live with it for the rest of our lives. We pray that it doesn't affect them in the future, and that they don't hold it against us in some way, and that others close to us don't hold these profound, but know this, these things happen. I learned that when my son got his first concussion; when he split his eye on the edge of a rocking chair, when he split his forehead on the same damn rocking chair which I didn't remove from his room. I still feel all the guilt. But the most important thing is that the child is okay. And she will heal. Hopefully, she will heal much sooner rather than later.

Oh, poor Makenna! And poor Mom! I can't imagine how scary that must have been for both of you. Thank heavens she is ok (or will be).

Big hugs to ALL of you!

Poor both of you! Hugs to you both, and hoping Makenna feels better soon

So sorry you had to go through that. It's not fun - we had a broken arm here last summer, and I know how lousy you feel when it's your kid. On the plus side, they do heal quickly, and I hope both of you feel better soon. :)

Oh wow! That is terrifying just to read about! I'm so glad that things weren't worse. I hope she heals quickly and big hugs to both of you.

Oh my GOODNESS! Poor sweet girl, I can't imagine how scary that must have been for both of you! Thank God she's okay and it wasn't worse, but I'm so sorry she was hurt. I'd love to send her a little get-well something!

Poor baby!!! Sending big hugs to both of you. Get well soon Makenna!

Heather, you're a very good mother. Stuff happens...I have firsthand experience of a horrible small child accident myself. He lived through it, grew up strong, and doesn't blame me in the least. :-)

Please know that we're sending well wishes to Makenna for quick healing and to you, to be able to set the whole thing into the past and let go of any guilt. You're a good mommy.


Poor Makenna, but poor Mama too because I'm sure it was just awful to see. I'm glad she's OK. Accidents do happen. The froggie sling is just adorable.

I know of where you guys were headed. Poor baby! Amazing how just a bit in one direction could have much different results. I hope you and Makenna are feeling better, hopefully that pretty new sling is cheering you guys up <3

Oh Heather I'm so sorry! What a scary thing to witness, and too feel so helpless. I am so glad mckenna is going to be okay.

You all are still in my thoughts and prayers. *big hug* I love the sling! You are so creative! :)

That must have been a heart wrenching thing to witness! I am glad she is okay though and you are such a sweet mom to make her such a great sling!

Oh my goodness, how horrible for you both. What an accident - they do happen, it can be hard to not feel guilty! Good thoughts going out to you both.

Oh my! I'm so sorry for you both. And very glad to know it's not worse.

As you know, and everyone has said, it was a pure and simple accident. As a veteran of the Children's ER for two similar incidents (no dog involved, but freaky falls that ended badly) I feel for you. Moments like those are some of the hardest of motherhood. Try to reschedule that trip as soon as reasonable for some R&R.

Love the sling!
