I took the boys to the small local library to pick up some new books. We had only been there for a couple minutes (not even enough time to pick out new books) and Hunter climbed up on a little table and chairs they have for kids (books, puzzles, toys, etc). He slipped, bumped his face and then there was blood. Lots of blood. Poor little guy had fallen, bit his lip and also hit the gum on the top of his mouth - which also bled and gave him a bruise. The poor little guy had a fat lip almost instantly. I felt so sad for the little guy when he kept wimpering, "Owie Mommy - my wip hoots".

When we got home I got worried when I noticed the bruise on his gums - but the teeth involved weren't loose and the bruise cleared up 2 days later. It's sure hard to see our kids hurt though - isn't it? When it's these "flesh wounds" right now it's tough - it makes me nervous for the coming years as I know there will be all kind of bumps, bruises, gashes, etc - both emotional and physical. I hope that Mommy's kisses will always be able to take away at least some of the sting.
