My Dare-devil

I thought I was going to have my first emergency room trip today. I've called poison control three times for Luke already, but we've never had any major falls or accidents. He's curious but not a dare-devil. Eli, on the other hand, has been a little monkey for months now. Last month he hauled himself headfirst into the toy box.

So, today...

Mama gave me a new sofa (It looks great, by the way.), and the old sofa was shoved to the side in our living room. Half of it was on the carpet part of the floor, and the other half was on the tile part. You can see where I'm going with this, right? Luke had taken the cushions off the sofa, which made things the perfect height for Eli to crawl up and bounce around like it was a trampoline. Not really a problem. It's low enough to the ground that if he falls, it won't be that big of a deal, I'm thinking. UNLESS he pulls himself over the back of the sofa and does a head dive onto the tile floor. Geeze!

Except for the screaming, my heart attack and the bruise on his head, we're all fine. I have a feeling I'm going to have to watch Eli a whole lot more closely than I ever have had to watch Luke.
