Dresser: 1, Ben: 0

Winking at Mom

Well, it's official. The dresser won the battle. As many of you know, Ben's clavical was broken when his dresser fell on top of him. He tried to climb it in order to get Thomas the train and as he was nearing the top, it tipped over. He was pinned underneath from the neck down. After I lifted the beast off of him, I realized that something was broken as he wouldn't let me come near his right arm. After an urgent care visit, xrays, and a frantic mother who was near hysterics...we found out that his collarbone had snapped. It was a clear break that required him to wear a sling until it healed up. He was such a trooper and he is one tough kid. I'm happy to report that he has mended and he is as good as new. Although he now has a healthy fear of climbing dressers.

That healthy fear is good. I am glad to hear he is doing well and is on the mend. I love the winking picture, that is too precious!
