The domestic comes in at 07h00 in the mornings and normally starts with the dishes. I go into the girls’ room, give them their bottles and she then takes over and does their nappies whilst we try to get done to go to school and work.
This morning, same routine, except, from our bedroom I hear big DOEF and the crying, and I just knew on the spot Mignon had fallen off the changing table. So I dashed through to the room and there was Mignon, back up on the changing table and crying her little heart out.
The domestic had turned around to get something and not had her hand on Mignon, so she took a dive.
I then picked her up and of course she vomited her bottle up all over me, which was fine, as long as she’s ok. No cuts, no bruises, no swelling, no further vomiting, no drowsiness and she seemed fine.
I have now phoned home 3 times already and the nanny says she is fine, playing nicely with her sister.
OMG. I’m not generally a paranoid mother, but I know how dangerous those kinds of falls are for children, so I’m extra careful around the changing station. Silly woman.
