Now I'm not totally OCD when it comes to parenting, if the little man falls, I pretend like I didn't see and he carries on. Inside, of course, I'm heart-broken. No mother wants to see their children get hurt. But that's how they learn, and man, do they learn a lot!
Our house is fairly baby proofed. We have one baby gate where his landing would be on concrete and the other stairs (only five stair) do not have a baby gate. He's pretty awesome at stairs now, and we have not had one falling-down-stairs incident to date.
One thing that does stress me out though is electricity. Because that can really hurt a child. I need to be protecting my baby from serious danger. I have baby proofed every single electrical socket in my house. Maybe I am a little OCD about that one.
