A rise and a fall

Today has been a mixed bag, it began with another trip to the library which went well and Tobin was pleased with his new books.

The fall happened once we got home, Tobin went up to the toilet. I was at the bottom of the stairs getting Jack out of his car seat and thankfully was there to catch Tobin before he hit the bottom of the stairs. He fell right from the top and I’m pretty sure I’ll be seeing that fall for the next few days every time he’s on the stairs. He is fine, it didn’t take long for him to feel ok. He had a bit of a mark on his lip but it hasn’t bruised so I think we were lucky he didn’t hurt himself. He’ll probably be sore tomorrow but it definitely could have been worse. I can honestly say it was one of the worst things I have ever seen, I felt so helpless.

The redeeming part of the day happened when Paul sent me a message to tell me that he’d got the promotion he’d gone for at work! He had his interview last week and it felt like a long time waiting to hear. I’m really pleased for him, he’s been there for years and its good that he’s being given more responsibility.

Tobin has entered his first competition today! For those of you who don’t know, I’m a comper and am always on the lookout for comps to enter. In a competition magazine I get there is a kids corner and a monthly colouring competition so Tobin got his pens out this morning and did a great job. Fingers crossed for him!
