It has finally arrived. The new Lord of the Rings - Return of the King trailer has been released for public viewing. It's about time!

Upon speaking with my mother this evening, I learned that one of my two favorite little boys, the oldest of the pair, decided this afternoon that he was going to climb on top of our kitchen counter in Florida and see what was to be seen from a new height (maybe he was feeling adventurous after watching the LOTR trailer).

My mother, distracted by the baby of the two who needed help in the bathroom (which could have been the boys' plan in the first place) heard a loud thump and a screaming Trent originating from the kitchen. Yep, the daring young three, soon to be four-year-old had fallen off of the kitchen counter and onto the floor, but not before his head ricocheted off of the countertops on the way down.

After many tears, fears, worries, and a trip to the emergency room later, the diagnosis: a slight concussion. He was so lucky he didn't break his nose or his neck or his head or Lord only knows what else. I'm hoping this will teach both boys to stay off of the counter, but I know better. He'll probably try to be right back up there tomorrow morning.

Having raised three children of her own, not to mention several neighborhood children who she always takes under her wing, my mother knows that accidents happen. Especially when you're dealing with little boys who believe they're invincible. How do you help prevent this sort of thing? You can't, really. But I know she's going to give it her best shot, even if that means removing all of the "footholds" or handles from the drawers in the front cabinets. It could also mean putting large, heavy, immovable-by-a-three-year-old, objects on the counter so that if they do manage to scale the handle-less cabinets, there will be no landing on which they can stand once they get to the top.

And I want two boys and a little girl when I grow up. Heaven help me.
