My Poor Baby

I don't think I'm cut out to be a little boy's mommy!!!! All the bumps, bruises, scrapes, and lumps are KILLING me! My tough little trooper just smiles and heads off to his next near-death experience. You think I'm kidding, but it's really gotten bad lately! Last Wednesday, at the zoo, Jimmy flipped a chair that he was standing in and landed flat on his face (split his lip wide open, made his nose bleed, and gave him a few little scuff marks on his lip and chin). Tuesday, he fell on the sidewalk while we were walking downtown in Fort Worth (one knee scraped pretty good, the other just scuffed.) Then, yesterday, he stood on the couch and fell into the wall behind it (busted his lip really badly - lots of blood, and scraped his chin), then to help recover, Daddy wrestled with him on our bed and he head-butted the footboard (another knot on the forehead), then he came up under the window sill and bonked his head (just a little - but enough already!) Then, at Home Depot, he slid forward on a tractor seat and it dumped him onto the floorboard of the tractor hitting his lip (yes in the same spot!) and cheek on the steering wheel. I'm telling you, the kid looks like a veteran boxer!!!


I do find it interesting, though, that on all three of our injury days, he did not take a nap! The first 2 incidents happened before naptime, but yesterday - the lack of nap caused all of the bravery. I was in a hurry to get him into the safety of his bed before we had to take him to the emergency room!!!! I don't think I can take the stress! All of these injuries were with us within a foot of him. What's he going to do to himself when he's out of reach, or better yet, out of sight! I think we'll look into homeschooling!! (Just kidding - not a chance!)
