Three Big Boo-Boos!
Shane's head has had a rough couple of days. Within 24 hours he took 2 hits to the forehead and 1 to the cheek. Today the last 2 were within 5 minutes of each other. He was not a happy camper. By the time the final blow to the cheek came he wouldn't let go of me. We sat in the rocking chair for 10 minutes....in silence. He wasn't crying any more, just holding on for dear life. I finally pulled him off of my shoulder so I could look at him and make sure he was okay. He has recovered fine from all 3 tumbles.
Yesterday his forehead was puffy and blue. Today not much is left up there, but a few scratches from todays fall. But the cheek will leave a mark for awhile I imagine.
How the falls occurred:
#1 He was sitting on the curb outside in the cul-de-sac, playing nicely in the rocks, when a plane flew over head. He reached up to point at it and lost his balance. He fell face first onto the concrete.
#2. Dodger plowed him over as they both hurried out the slider door.
#3. While crawling on the deck his finger got caught, so his head kept going forward as his body stayed behind.
