Dealing with Toddler Boo-Boos & The Thermal-Aid Bear

Posted Jan 24 2013 7:00am

Yesterday was quite the day for miss Emmie-Lou-Who.  We had her 15-month check up at lucky for us she is one healthy girl!  She’s slowed down a bit on height … still 85% mind you … which means we might have a normal sized child ;)  She also got three shots which she took like a champ.  We thought the worst was over when we left the doctor’s office but we were wrong.

 

Let me set the scene for you.  Em and I walk into the house after the doctor.  We head to the laundry room so I can switch out laundry.  She’s sitting on the floor while I am doing my thing when she lets out the biggest wail.  I look down.  And see the blood.

 

I can only assume that she bumped her mouth on something.  I didn’t hear a thump but who knows.  She was literally right under my feet.  Luckily it was a small cut on her bottom lip but the poor thing swelled super fast.  I wiped it down with a wet washcloth and grabbed a bag of frozen peas.  Em happily munched on the bag while we watched some Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on the couch.

Emmalyne is a tough cookie though and was fine just a few minutes later.  Thank goodness!  Do you see the cute pink bear in the photo?  This is one of our new “gadgets”!
