Abby's Close Call

It was actually VERY SCARY and could have turned out VERY badly. We were playing in the guest room and Abby was looking in the drawers of the dresser which is mostly empty but I guess when she pulled the drawers out, it threw the entire dresser off balance. The whole thing started to topple, complete with the tv on top. I caught it with 3 fingers while sitting on the bed just before it crushed Abby who was sitting right underneath it. I screamed for her to move because I didn't know if I could hold it. She moved and I was able to get the dresser back up with some sort of super human strength that moms seem to pull out of their butt's when their kids are in danger. I don't think I realized how close we came to a disaster till I was laying in bed thinking about it last night. I am just extremely thankful for how things turned out.
