She was running so fast.
November 01, 2010

And she fell.

And her head was bumped.
And her chin was scraped.
And her hands were scratched.
And her knees bled.
And her legs were bruised.

And I don’t know who cried hardest: she or I.

    I would guess you probably did. My son fell and hit his head on our coffee table when he was about 8 months old. He got a huge bump. I took a picture to show my husband. Now, years later when I look at that photo my heart still aches a bit. That first real boo boo is hard on us Mommies.

    Oh, the poor darling…

    *kisses for Charlotte’s boo-boos and hugs for you*

    Jude has yet to do anything like that, but I know it’s coming. I am so not prepared. :(

    I cringe every time Finnley falls (two black eyes, a cut in the corner of her eye, a scraped nose, a fat lip)....and she just keeps falling and getting up again.  Now she just wipes her hands like mommy taught her and moves on.  They are tough little things, aren’t they???

    Awww, poor baby.

    The first big owies are the hardest on everyone. Kids are amazingly tough, though. It’s a good thing they get right back up and try whatever hijinks they were up to again.

    I know what you mean :(  Children are amazing though, they are troopers.  Hope Charlotte is okay :)

    My son’s first big fall was as he reached forward to grab/lean on a horizontal bar at the park…And I was RIGHT THERE, just inches away and I couldn’t stop it.

    His hands slipped, his little mouth landed on the bar, his lip bled, and his mouth was full of dirt and paint chips, and as I looked closer…Tooth chips :o(  He cried, I cried, I cleaned him up the best I could, and walked the half hour home, 18 weeks pregnant with #2, as fast as I could.  Off to a pediatric dentist that afternoon (by some stroke of luck they had an appointment), and thankfully although one of his front teeth is chipped it did not affect the root or nerve, and he will not lose it.

    Mommy cried on and off the rest of the day though…Every time I think about it, it breaks my heart a little!  And now I have a second little boy (5 weeks), who will undoubtedly follow in his brother’s footsteps!

    Ah, yes… I know that feeling. The good thing is that kids are resilient and they won’t even remember the incident.
