Kid Catastrophe Living Up to Her Name

Just when you think everything is going fine, BANG! Your daughter falls off the back of the couch, and almost goes out a window. I was thinking just moments before how my little daughter looked so grown up, and how she is becoming less clumsy and more agile (like her brother), and so I was letting her play up on the back of the couch with her brother.

Right after she fell, Kid Catastrophe started crying and Danger Boy immediately comes to his sister's rescue and pulls her up since her legs were hanging out the window. Score one for Danger Boy! I rush over (trying to remember to breathe! And not have a heart attack!) and expect to see BLOOD. I look over Kid Catasrophe and I see NOTHING. She's still crying, the entire bottom part of the window is busted out so I know she must have hit it hard enough with her legs to break it. I do eventually find a scrape (not bleeding) along one shin on her leg. Kid Catastrophe comes through another kid caused natural disaster with little/no damage!

You ever hear the quote "there's a separate god for children"? I think it might be from "How To Kill a Mockingbird". I don't think the quote means that there are several gods, just that God has a special place in his heart for our children and looks out for them especially. It seems like every parent I've talked to has a story where their children should have been seriously hurt, but managed to come out virtually unscathed.
