Jenny Mollen Reveals She Dropped 5-Year-Old Son, Fracturing His Skull

by at .

Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen are one of those celebrity couples who are more focused on parenting these days than on making headlines.

But Jenny has come forward to share that their family has experienced every parent's nightmare.

Jenny revealed that she dropped their 5-year-old son on his head, resulting in a skull fracture.

Alongside one of her many redacted photos that give her children a semblance of privacy, Jenny Mollen shared a horror story.

"On Saturday evening," Jenny begins. "I dropped my son on his head."

She is speaking of her 5-year-old son, Sid.

She says that he fell, "causing him to fracture his skull."

Skull fractures can be fatal or lead to lifelong complications, even behavioral problems that manifest in adulthood.

"And," she adds, the injury resulted in Sid "landing him in the ICU."

"I am forever grateful to Lenox hill downtown and @nyphospital," Jenny expresses. "For their immediate response and aid."

She then gushes about her appreciation for absolutely every professional, on every level, who helped in this crisis.

"Thank you," she writes. "To all of the nurses, neurologists, pediatricians, residents, cafeteria staff, and brave women that keep the visitor‘s bathrooms clean."

"Not sure how this post turned into an Oscars acceptance speech..." Jenny admits, roasting herself a little.

Once the critical moments of a crisis has passed, it can be very healthy to deflect with humor.

"But @biggsjason Thank god for you!" she writes to and of her husband. "Thank god, thank god, thank god."

"It has been a traumatic week," Jenny affirms.

We would certainly imagine so.

"But," Jenny says. "Sid is home now."

Her post continues, and she makes it clear that her 5-year-old son is "taking things slowly."

"And," she notes, he is thankfully "recovering nicely."

Jenny then shares some news that indicates that Sid seems to be doing just fine.

"He is also eating a lot of chocolate dipped ice cream cones," she shares.

"And," Jenny adds, her son "plans to try cherry dipped soon."

Jenny expresses: "My heart goes out to all parents who have or will ever find themselves in this kind of position."

"You are not alone," she affirms.

Jenny's story struck a chord with a lot of moms -- including some of her fellow celebrities, like Jessica Alba and Krysten Ritter.

A number of commenters came forward to assure Jenny that this horrific nightmare happens more often than people think.

Jenny seems to know that -- which is why she chose to share the story.

Her fans and followers may take comfort in knowing that, if this happened in their own pasts, they're not the only parents who've done that.

At the same time, if Jenny's story makes any other parents extra careful with their kids, that certainly can't hurt.

Hopefully, no one will ever be rude enough to ask Sid "what, were you dropped on your head as a child?"

Because the answer is literally yes.

Unfortunately, that phrase comes from this all-too-common accident. Loving, attentive parents can drop their kids.

The result can be anything from a bruise to death.

We sincerely hope that Sid avoids any long-term consequences for this tragic accident.

And though a lot of identified serial killers suffered a massive head trauma as a child, we hope that no one makes insensitive jokes about Sid.

He's literally a child. Please be nice.
