A Very Important Day for Me

Today I celebrate the gift of having my amazing Alan Boy in my life.

It was 2 years ago today that my then 3 year old Alan was playing up stairs in his room, when he unlocked, opened, and fell 19 feet out his bedroom window into the basement window well below.  
Today I would like to remind all of you to PLEASE install extra window locks on your windows.  I had warned him about playing near windows, he was playing happily and quietly in his room, and the window was closed and locked and in a matter of moments I could have lost him.  I never want another Mother or child to go through what we had to go through.

We now have the Safety 1st band installed to that the windows can be opened 3 inches in the kids rooms.  You can buy them a Target, Toys R us, online, and probably Walmart and anywhere else like that.


  1. Our prayers were certainly answered in this regard. We LOVE that little guy and are so happy he is being watched over.

  2. WOW! I am loving your blog! That is one cute kid too! I'm linking you :)

  3. So glad things turned out well. Crying just considering it, whether your kids or mine (or anyone else's for that matter!).
