benson saves the day


Last night Benson dropped his cup down the crack of the bed. It rolled to the most annoying spot---unreachable from above or below without moving the bed. So Ben picked up the bed but I guess got distracted or something and dropped it on me while I was half way under it. So I started yelling, "Ben! It's on my back! Help me, I can't get out!" But he said he was in a weird position so it took him a while... I don't really know what Ben was thinking, you'll have to ask him. But anyway in the meantime I was struggling to get out from under the bed and Benson came running for me and you won't believe this but he pulled me out! I looked at him and I said, "Benson, thank you! You saved me!" And he said, "Mommy was stuck under the bed and I pulled you out and now you are OK." Then he gave me a kiss on my back and a huge hug and just sat there with me. I was so amazed that he saw what he thought was a crisis and just acted. It was not a serious situation of course but his actions were so sweet and it was incredible to see him do what he felt he needed to do to save his mommy.

I am so grateful you are sharing all these adorable moments with us. It is so wonderful to see this little person's BIG personality. We will have lots of things to talk about when we see each other. Thanks!

Super Benson to the rescue. In our marriage Kaleb dropped a heavy TV on my hand. But hasn't smashed me under any beds yet :)

Way to go Benson! I wonder if Emma would just laugh at me and think it was funny. I'll give her the benefit of the doubt :) Love the new look!
