And for a while, today's play session was no different. But, there are some very rambunctious, and considerably bigger kids running around, so I suppose what happened next was inevitable - a girl (accidentally) ran into him and knocked him down. He took an elbow to the face, with enough force that it split his upper lip. Poor baby!!
There was blood, and initially I was pretty freaked out (though of course I was as calm and soothing as I could be for him), but he really only cried for a few minutes, and then he was fine.
He's a tough little guy, and though as his mama, I wish I could protect him from everything, I know it's just part of being a kid, and I know there will be more to come. I just really hope there's nothing from which he doesn't bounce right back!
