I have managed to be a parent for 12 years to 6 children and never had a child pull over a piece of furniture. Now in the last week Caleb pulled over his dresser and today Jillian pulled over her dresser. She managed to survive. Honestly, what is going on with these children? I am going to have a heart attack. I was out in our trailer working on some Christmas present sorting and Jilly was inside 'napping'. Next thing I know Ginny is knocking on the outside of the trailer door.
'Mama, we heard a CRASH and Loulee is crying!"
So of course I fly to the back bedroom and my amazingly responsible girls had already lifted the dresser back up and were cradling Jillian in my bedroom. Amazingly, miraculously and by the grace of God Jillian also was spared in the same way Caleb was. Apparently she was trying to reach her kitty which was on the dresser. She opened all the drawers and stood on the bottom one. The dresser tipped but because the bottom drawer was open it caught against the carpet and didn't topple all the way over. The force threw Jilly back and the girls big jewelry box fell on her but the dresser did not. Praise God!
Ironically I had just tested the dresser to see how stable it was after Caleb had knocked his over (it's the same dresser style) and it seemed so sturdy. I am going to anchor them both today. At least Jillian came out of it with her dignity intact...she was fully clothes unlike her brother.
