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”!
