Hahaha, it makes me laugh every time. Poor kid. That's happened to DD twice now... our dog just mows her down when he's intent on playing or chasing a ball :(
What's the worst tumble your kid(s) has taken?
Thankfully, he hasn't had any major boo-boos yet.
The only thing that still makes me shudder was my dad's fault. LOL When DS was almost 9 months old, we went to visit (we live out of state) & my dad wasn't sure how stable DS was. He went to sit him down on the living room floor & DS just fell straight backwards onto his head. It wasn't his fault but DS was still not a solid sitter at the time. He cried for just a few moments but that was the WORST!
DD1 fell head over heels down the entire wooden staircase around age 3. However, no injuries. Her worst injury was a tumble on the concrete at the pool - huge split lip and a bruised tooth. The former was scarier for us, though.
DD2 falls so much but I'm not sure if any have been really bad. She's had some goose eggs though. Oh, wait, once when she was about 7 months old she somehow fell (from sitting) into the curb (she was in the grass) and her eye was bleeding. So gross and random, but it stopped pretty fast and no further injury.
If we had dogs, though, I think they would get knocked over on a daily basis.
He tripped on a ball when he was 14 months and fell in just the right way to break his leg. It was a freak thing, though, because it wasn't a bad fall and he'd done it a million other times.
Hadley fall all the time, it's amazing how resilient she is! She fell down the steps a few months ago, got up and shook her head and said "Oh... " and patted her head, she cried but for only about 30 seconds.
She hasn't ever had any major scrapes or bruises.
Parker once fell off a dining chair at my sister's house. It wasn't necessarily a big fall, but it was hilarious because one second she's there, the next BAM floor.
Rowan fell down two of our stairs in the house and I almost had a heart attack. Luckily she caught herself with her hands before she tumbled down any more.
Honestly, none? And she's almost 7. I mean, she's fallen- like when she was learning to walk. Or when she started running and couldn't get her balance. She fell at school last week in the snow. But she's never gotten hurt.
And it's because she's kinda wimpy (yeah, I have no issue saying that). She is very careful, always has been. Doesn't like to climb because "it's scary". Getting her on the rock climbing wall for kids at school last year was a biitch and I actually had to go to her gym class so she felt comfortable and would try.
So, none. But I actually wish she had more balls when it came to running and playing and being a kid. But, at least we've never gotten hurt I guess?

DD-she was about 3, and she was running full throttle through our living room into her playroom. Well, she tripped right at the doorway, and she went forehead first into the door jam ... she had a huge purple goose egg on her forehead for a very long time, and you can still feel the faint dent in her skull.
DS- probably when I fell down the stairs with him as a baby. He was fully asleep, and I slipped on some books DH left on the stairs, and DS flew out of my hands, and down about 4 stairs. He was perfectly fine, although I did get a funny look from him when I picked him up, like "Why am I face down, upside down on the stairs, Woman?" ... then the crying started. He was fine. Otherwise, I would have to say whatever happened to chip one of his front teeth. I STILL can't figure out when he did that, but it was sometime after he learned how to climb, and I think he fell off our built in bookshelf, but I have no proof of that, because I just randomly noticed it one day.
LOL! our dog tries to do that to ME on the regular. Seriously, if he doesn't see me for longer than 10 minutes, he acts like it's been hours.
Oh, DS1's was when DS pushed him off of his bed and he bruised his tibia. His pedi was convinced that it was fractured and insisted that we have it x-rayed twice by 2 different doctors just to be sure.
DS2's was when he somehow fell off the couch when he was 2 months old. I was sitting RIGHT THERE when it happened and I felt horrible that I couldn't catch him before he hit the floor.

DD fell down carpeted stairs at about that age...she kind of rode a pillow down, but it was still scary. Her worst fall was at school...apparently she went to hug a boy and missed...hit her head on the corner of the teacher's desk. Still has a scar on her forehead. She bled everywhere, all the kids were so freaked out. I got like 10 phone calls after school checking on her.
