Day 5: Cheeky Monkey

One cheeky monkey jumping on the bed.

He fell off and bumped his head.

Mother rang the doctor and the doctor said,

'No cheeky monkeys jumping on the bed!'

We had a little bit of an accident today. Little Lou fell out of his bedroom window. There is usually a bit of dowel that stops the window from opening up fully so little people don't fall out (the window is set low - as we are in a rental property, we can't do too much to it). Anyway, I opened the window up a few centimeters to let some fresh air in and didn't check to see if the dowel was in place, as I got distracted. The dowel had been moved so the window could open up fully. Lou fully opened the window and leaned on the fly screen. It didn't take his weight and he fell out the window (about a 1.5 metre drop) onto the concrete path below. A trip to the hospital to check him over.... Luckily, he just had a cut and a sore head.

Poor little Lou, hope his head is starting to feel better. And how scary for you! Your explanation of how it happened helps me understand all those news stories of toddlers falling out of windows.

Poor wee poppit.
I bet he wont be doing that again, although, judging by that cheeky face all his wee pals probably think he is cool!
