I may have mentioned that I have a problem with impulse control. I know what "Wait!" means, I just have a really hard time doing it. I also have pretty poor depth perception and NO FEAR. Today Mom opened the back of the van just to get something out, and, not wanting to be left behind, I tried to jump in. It was too high for me and I fell back and hit my head on the pavement. I hit so hard that Mom actually heard the crack. She had made a grab for me, but had her hands full of stuff and wasn't quick enough. I was a bit dazed for a few seconds but shook it off. Mom's afraid I might have a concussion so she's been watching me like a hawk. She gave me a Tramadol for my headache, and I'll probably have a big goose-egg. She told me, "Now I know how you got your broken jaw and missing teeth!"

Ouch!! I hope you are okay. I once jumped out of my car seat and landed on the sidewalk on my side. I got up, stumblemd and then went running to the front door but now momma is extra careful when she opens the car door.

Smooches,

Wow, I didn't know you hurt yourself! I've tried doing the same thing, also trying to jump onto the bed over the footboard. Not good ideas. We have such big personalities, we forget how short we are hehehe! Take care, Patch.
