My son’s nightmare

My son’s nightmare - Lucille Quigley

Don’t you hate it when you walk through the house in the night and you step on a building block or a small car that your kid forgot to pick up? I have been telling my son at least six times per day that at bedtime, all of his toys should be placed in their baskets. No toys on the floor after 8:00 P.M. That includes the soft toys, as well! 

Last year, I had a nasty fall down the stairs, because I had stepped on his teddy bear and slipped. It wasn’t funny at all! I had broken a toe and I had to walk with the plaster cast over a month. I was not able to climb the stairs for a week, and I had to sleep downstairs on the couch. 

Last night, my son had a nightmare. He was crying in his sleep. I hear him cry and I woke up. I went running to his room to see what was happening. On my way to his bedroom, I stepped on one of his small cars. I managed to break it and get myself injured. 

The second I stepped on it, I felt a sharp pain on my sole. It made me lose my balance and end up on my knees. I realized it was a toy. I picked it up, whispered a curse and rushed to my son’s bedroom.

He was still asleep. I picked him up, took him into my arms and started to hum his favorite lullaby. This method is always effective. It calms him down. Sometimes he wakes up, other times he doesn’t. He simply goes into a deeper sleep. I caressed his forehead while holding him into my arms. 

Once he looked peaceful and sound asleep, I tried to leave his bed and walk out of his room. That’s when I realized that my leg was hurting and I couldn’t put pressure on it. I had completely forgot about my foot injury. 

After I was out of the bedroom, I turned on the light and had a look at it. It was bleeding and I had no idea. I dragged myself to the washroom and tried to clean my wound. I disinfected it and applied a patch, hoping that the bleeding would stop.

While I was attending to my wound I remembered I had forgot to drop the Fixed awning longueuil. I was supposed to do it yesterday, but it slipped my mind.
