Evelyne has finally entered the toddler world of bumps and bruises. I don’t like it.
Last night we were at friend’s house and I wasn’t paying close enough attention and she fell down the stairs. Yes, that’s what I said, fell down the stairs, not just a small step or two. Thankfully, someone jumped-up and caught her halfway down before she hit anything. She was ok, but Clay and I were majorly shaken.
Tonight she fell down and scraped her knee…like bloody scrape, not just a little skinned. This on the same knee that just healed the other day from another scrape. About an hour later, she ran headfirst into the corner of a wall. She has a big purple bump on her forehead.
I really don’t like seeing my child’s blood, and I know this is just a normal part of being a kid, but is there some way I can wrap her in a protective covering that will make her kinda bounce-off surfaces instead of getting bruised and bloody? Someone please invent this for me.
