Today I messed up by letting my kid play in the upstairs hallway

I messed up by letting my son play in the upstairs hallway. My son loves to play with anything with wheels, toy cars, toy trains etc. My son wanted to build a giant city for his cars and trains, going all throughout the upstairs of our house.

I thought this was a cool idea, so I said ok. He built an awesome city with highways, railroads and skyscrapers. The only problem is, you can't see it in the dark.

I got up to get a midnight snack and tripped on a toy car, which sent me falling down the stairs. I broke my ankle and my wife had to rush me to the emergency room at 2 AM to get it patched up. I'm still in a lot of pain and not able to walk up the stairs right now, so for now I'm sleeping downstairs on the couch.

From now on I'll tell my son that cities will have to be limited to his bedroom, lest I fall down the stairs again.
