”I Got You!”

Rainbow field

I’d totally prepared another post when I decided to take a little nap and my 2-year-old son sauntered after me. I groaned inwardly knowing my quick ‘shut-eye’ was fading into the shadows. Well he’s my son and I love him so we played on the bed, rumpled the sheets and like I suspected, he soon got bored and went back to the living room to watch ‘Agent Oso,’ on the T.V and play with his ten-year old brother.

I had settled into a blissful sleep, you know that kind where you feel as if you’re been rocked and your bed was moving in consonance to your breathing? Well, I was in that threshold when intuitively, my eyes flipped open, my son had climbed my bed and was sitting precariously near the edge, it seemed as if he was navigating a rugged mountain by the look on his cute face, and everything happened in a split second…

If my son had fallen from that bed, I’m sure the Queen would have heard his wailing in Buckingham palace, so I was not about to let that happen; his head had almost reach the floor when I caught hold of his ankle.

”I got you!” I said breathlessly and put him down, he smiled and disappeared from the room, calling out his brother’s name.

This incident brought this thought to my head, in life, we’re surrounded by loved ones, friends and family members who are always around when we are happy, sad or… just been alive. I think we should appreciate them more, you know my saying, life is too short, let people around you know you care… And just as we marvelled at the beauty of a rainbow, let us marvel at their love for us because they always got our backs!

Thanks for reading my post!!

    My inspiration for today comes from a mother, and an incredibly savvy, smart woman as well. Meet Ms. Sandra of the blog: “seyisandradavid”.

    I like that .. Especially the lightning reactions

  6. Uzoma says:

    Sweet Mother you are! And your reaction was exceptional. Haha. I can picture the smile on your child’s face when he left.

      Awww! Thanks for that sweet comment Uzoma, my son is one cheeky little fellow but if he’d fallen off that bed, I would have seen hell because he can cry!! Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it, always!!!
      Much love-:)

      • Uzoma says:

        LOL…he’s exhibiting the exuberance of someone his age. I’d prefer a healthy, agile, witty, and at times being a crier to a dull child who rarely smiles. Your son has the good stuffs…Say ‘hello’ to him for me.

      • Seyi sandra says:

        You’re right Uzoma, he’s at that age where everything and everyone is a toy, I’m enjoying it though but it could be tiring sometimes, especially, after a hard day’s job in the office…

  7. Excellent advice, good reflexes, nice catch! And Happy New Year!! : )

    Agreed! Family and loved ones make us who we need to be!

  9. Jamie Dedes says:

    I agree. Too many of our blessings – like family – are too often taken for granted. A sweet post. Glad you shared our thoughts here. Thank you!

  10. meiro says:

    Thank God he is safe. You are a wonderful mother Seyisandra

    Much love,

  11. When I saw this, I first thought that you stole my double rainbow photo: http://andreasmoser.wordpress.com/2012/08/11/after-the-rain/ Lucky you that you didn’t. 🙂

    What a beautiful reminder of how much we need each other.

  13. Kids are great prospective keepers. Everyone should have one – or at least most people.
    (Thanks for the follow – by the way)

  14. Jenny Cooper says:

    Just discovered your blog, love it, and this grabbing a falling child is something I remember doing too.

  15. jannatwrites says:

    I’m glad you caught him before he got hurt. I couldn’t agree more that we should let our loved ones know each day that they are mean so much to us.

  16. nightlake says:

    agree with you. A lovely post

    A post with the heart of the small and innocent, wrapped with the warmth of rescuer of life in a fall. When thinking about such a feat of speed and agility, and the protection/covering of those less capable, it reminds me of so many amazing adventure/quest stories. Rugged mountain passes are such dangerous places to traverse, your son was luck to have you on his quest to the Living Kingdom and back again…

  18. We’re all here to catch each other’s ankles – a sweet vision 😉
    Sweet Dreams!

  19. WordsFallFromMyEyes says:

    Excellent! The look on your son’s face, I could imagine 🙂

    10 and 2 – I didn’t realise. WOW. I bet you’re a beautiful mother… you’re a beautiful writer!

    • Seyi sandra says:

      He is one cheeky little guy! I got 10(oldest son) 6 (daughter) and 2 (the cheeky little fellow) Thank you sooo much for your kind compliments, some days are just chaotic with screams and yelling and other days- like today, it’s so calm! So, I’ve been able to finish my novel!!
