If you have a moment, read this blog. It is a must-read for parents. One of my friends posted this and I didn't think twice about it. I stopped for a moment just to read it, and am seriously glad I did. Especially since I plan on having multiple children, and I would never want something like this to happen!

I read and posted that this morning too. Could be because I was pregnant and had been up for 22 hours, but I was bawling!

We keep saying we are going to attach everything up the wall. We need to get off our butts and do it. Cody is pulling up on everything.

So sad I've read that before and had DH read it and we were both really upset by it. Chase's room is the safest in our entire house because of this, but there are still areas we could improve.

Also, locking a child's room is a fire hazard. I think you were joking Ashley but I just wanted to post it in case anyone hadn't thought about that before. So many things to worry about with our kiddos!

OMG thanks for making me cry so sad.

we need to attach the changing table and dresser to the wall.... acually the dresser fell on Madison in that same room its in now and why I never attached it I dont know. It fell and the bed saved it from falling all the way on her.... I think she was 3 as well as this little girl.

I read this the other day, but we had to head to a wedding, so I didn't respond to it, but oh my word! i was in tears. I can not imagine the total devestation that day must have been.

In the car on our way to the wedding I was on my phone shopping for furniture securing straps.

Rylynn isn't pulling up on things yet, but I'm getting this house secure and safe before it becomes a worry. We are also taking our huge, heavy flatscreen off it's glass stand and putting it on the wall. Glass + 100lb tv = oh my, so not safe for a baby!!

I hate that it took something so terrible to bring this to light, but I thank that woman for writing about it and warning all of us so we don't have to live through the same horror.
