Ouch! Many parents have had similar experiences, where out of reflex we protect a baby in a fall or other accident. I recall falling with Glen in my arms, and I fell very hard, protecting him with my arms and body. It was all reflex. Another time, he stumbled into the kitchen just in time to fall on the open door of the hot oven. I body checked him back into the wall, which made him cry, but he only got first degree burns--I was that fast!
