An ongoing blog following a young married couple as they renovate their railroad apartment in Brooklyn, New York and a crazy falling down farmhouse up in the Catskills. Both husband and wife work full-time jobs each day, so almost all of their projects will be squeezed into any free second each night and every weekend. Hence the name: After-Dinner Design, though come to think of it, maybe we should change it to "So Tired Design"...)

Brush with disaster: The perils of parenting...
So whoa. We had our first real brush with calamity this week. Jules fell off our bed, backwards, and landed "all weird" with his arm behind him at a really wiggy angle. I confess-- I wasn't home-- but I zipped back to Brooklyn lickity-split and we spent much of Thursday and most of yesterday in the various pediatric and orthopedist offices associated with our neighborhood.
After numerous examinations (always popular with a two year old) we've finally emerged with a clean (bruised) bill of health, and managed to avoid the trauma of getting a cast. (Possibly more dreadful for parents than child...)
Lesson learned. No more monkeys jumping on the bed!
