It’s true.. You can’t wrap kids up in cotton wool no matter how much you want to. Chances are they will have an accident at some point.
Last week Maxx had an accident in the house. He was in the living room and as he came through to the kitchen he slipped and fell banging his nose and lip. I wasn’t in the room at the time he was with his mum but I heard the ear piercing scream, the one that makes you panic from the second your hear it, that makes your heart race at 100 miles an hour, the scream that tells you they have really hurt themselves.
Maxx hurt his nose when he fell and ended up with a little bruise and a cut lip from where he had bitten his lip when he fell. He was really lucky he didn’t bang his head or chip his teeth and I think he got a big fright more than anything.
It’s horrible when you see someone you love in pain especially when it’s a young child. The horrible fact is that it probably won’t be the last time he hurts himself.
Thankfully he was right as rain the next day and got a funky water trumpet for being such a brave boy when he fell 🙂
